When Nikon released the 24 megapixel, full-frame D3x, some photographers griped that the new model was the same as the D3 with twice the megapixels and twice the price. In a sense, they’re right but the D3x was not unexpected since Nikon has a history of extending its professional series cameras with an “x” model to indicate high resolution. Hence, the D3x is a high resolution version of the D3. But it’s not quite as simple as that.
The D3x is designed for a highly targeted user group-the professional, such as a studio photographer, who needs or wants large image files. Considering that a digital back costs many thousands of dollars more than the D3x, then perhaps this camera is actually-as bizarre as it sounds-economical alternative.
Still the D3x costs more than its closest competitor, the 21 megapixel, $7,000 Canon 1Ds Mark III. Sony has two full-frame, 24 megapixel DSLRs-the A900 and the A850-that are priced around $3,000 and $2,000, respectively, boasting the highest count among similarly priced models.
There are, of course, benefits and drawbacks to working with a 24 megapixel camera. The main attraction is, of course, a huge amount of image data. This allows for billboard-sized enlargements as well as tight cropping. On the downside, working with large image files can tax the processing speed of all but the highest powered computers and fill hard drives in a blink of an eye. Still, there’s definitely a market for the D3x, even with its premium price.
