Still, it has to be between Nikon and Canon as each one tries to eclipse the other (and Sony, for that matter) with the mind-boggling figures that each is able of, If there’s a” power” race going on in the camera world.


Nikon presumably though it had the race won with the preface of the D3 body which is a good body that delivers excellent low-light performance and good performance under just about any adverse condition you can suppose of-low light, backlight, bright light, night light, handheld and the suchlike-but it may not have been watching its rearview because it can not have anticipated Canon to have awaited around with its aged EOS D1 MarkIII body because Canon has just passed Nikon in numerous areas.

Let’s face it, the X model of the D3 or the Nikon D3X has a huge resolution of24.5 MP, but in FX mode-39 by 24 mm-and while it can shoot at  handheld umbrella with lights over to 5 fps it just does not feel to have the handheld versatility of the new Canon EOS 5D Mark II.


Granted the Canon does give up about 3MP in resolution to the Nikon, but unless you’re looking under a monstrously important magnifying glass, you will not see any difference in the finished product. Also, the Canon has an ISO range that’s about four times as great as the Nikon, over to 25600, while the Nikon is still riding about 6400, which is good, but not relatively as wide as the Canon.

And, yes, the Nikon will shoot at 5 fps continues versus the3.9 fps of the Canon, but again, the irk is that you can not take full advantage of the huge Nikon resolution. Let’s face it,24.5 MP is excellent resolution, but where and how can you achieve it. Try handholding a spider in a web and staying for the camera to optimize its huge resolution, you will presumably find the results are about the same as the EOS running around 6400 or so or the D3 running at the same speed. Okay, so snare a tripod and shoot the same image and the same thing happens.


The huge resolution is great if you’re shooting effects, like the Grand Canyon, that really do not move veritably important or if you’re shooting a great- looking inner, duly lit setup, using plant kleges and screens with the right filtering. That is where the advantage seems to be.

Still, you’d presumably go with the Canon 5D Mark II first, the Nikon D3 second and the Nikon D3X third because it’s a stalemate between the D3 and D3X in everyday use and the Canon easily blows them down with autostablization and its range of long lenses, If you had three camera bodies and contrivance bags in your auto’s box and had to pick the bone you want for everyday use. Imaging a mm drone on a tripod that is autostablized as you shoot a tennis match. You will be suitable to get the sweat pouring off the tennis ball with veritably little trouble. The D3 can deliver the same results. If you want the full results from the D3X you will have to move it outdoors to a plant and stay for everything to be so that the plant lights can snap and you can get the image.
