About this product
- Product InformationDesigned specifically for professional photographers, the Nikon D3x 24.5 MP digital SLR camera is endowed with Nikon's FX-format CMOS image sensor to provide a generous resolution of 24. 5 effective megapixels, rendering high resolution images. Speed is incorporated into this digital camera in several ways including fast processing through Nikon's EXPEED image-processing system, shutter speed at a nearly instantaneous release, and 5-frames-per-second continuous shooting in FX format. To assist you in getting clearer, crisper images, this camera provides a 51-point autofocus system. Automatic adjustments are also made for lighting and you are able to switch between various modes to fit the setting you are in so that images created are more true to life. This camera includes the body only.
- Product Features
- Exquisite details
The sensor's 24.5 megapixels are only the beginning. No matter how you shoot - tightly controlled or on the fly - the camera's phenomenally wide dynamic range retains subtlety of shadow and highlight detail that contributes to breathtaking image fidelity, which can make the difference between good pictures and exceptional ones.
- Images with the x-factor
Images with the X-factor are what your clients expect and your reputation deserves. Nikon's EXPEED processing system is much more than a mere label or processing chip component. The EXPEED at work in the D3X is designed specifically to meet the requirements of a 24.5-megapixel sensor. The results will exceed the expectations of any photographer whose work requires extreme resolution, rich tonal gradation, outstanding color accuracy and remarkable detail. Commercial and fine art photographers will immediately see that the D3X cuts no corners.
- Rapid response
Not every subject poses for the camera. Whether itâs on the catwalk, in the studio or roaming in the wild, photographers must capture their subject beautifully and accurately. With its 51 individually selectable AF points, the D3X autofocus system is the same as the acclaimed Nikon D3, which has become the preferred choice of so many of the world's leading sports and news photographers by delivering tack-sharp images, even when shooting moving, low-contrast or poorly lit subjects.
- Comprehensive protection
Fait Spectacular images can be found far beyond the controlled confines of the studio. Unlike less robust 36x24mm D-SLRs or more cumbersome medium-format equipment, the D3X was designed to be at home both on the set and on location. Its performance-tested body is similar to the world-renowned D3, which has proven that it can withstand the worst of what the world's leading news photographers can throw at it. Wherever you are, the D3X delivers studio-quality images in an agile body that can withstand the elements.
- Creative freedom
Whether itâs the world-renowned NIKKOR lenses or the industry-leading Speedlight system, shooting with a D3X opens the door to a range of creative opportunities that only Nikon can offer. The Nikon Total Imaging System, backed up by the Nikon Professional Services (NPS) network is there to help you realize your vision, or even stimulate new ones.

The good is great. Love the camera. I date back to the Nikon FTN. Yep...had a lot of Nikons over the decades. Shot pro for many years. The D3X is a solid camera. Image is better than good. Got it, and had one issue. The strobe did not fire as soon as I tripped the shutter. A call to Nikon's MayDay line...the little button on the top of the camera with the flash symbol was set wrong. 18 seconds later, and I was good to go. No doubt, the later model cameras do well. And, if I wear this one out...or just get bored... I might give them a try. The price for this "like new" camera body was really good. And, the fact that I get to use my "film" lenses...because it's a full frame (FX) system makes me really happy.

Great value used in mid-2015. Robust, reliable, no-worries solution.
This review ignores video considerations. Furthermore, I'm coming at this review probably from a very different perspective than most folks who purchase the D3X when it came out. I found a used copy with virtually no wear and very low actuations AFTER having used a D4 and D4s extensively. For sports and birding, I rely upon the current flagship models for their rapid-fire shutter and motion-optimized focus engines. But the D4/D4s lack the pixel resolution for other applications where you need to crop in post. This is where the D3X fits in. It has the same robust and precise feel of the D4/D4s. The extra mass also helps dampen shutter vibration and balances well on the heavier telephotos. If you're used to Nikon's pro models (D2, D3, D4) then you know what to expect with this beast. All the controls (but one) are where you expect. In fact I used to shoot F2/F4 (film) and so the exposure control lever (next to the prism) is just where a former film (or D2) shooter expects it to be. The lone surprise was how to activate Live View. On the D4/D4s, there is a dedicated LV button which activates the feature with a single press. On the D3x, you spin the shutter mode dial to LV and click the shutter button once the same way you would use "Mirror Up" mode. This is not a knock against the camera. Just a note to others who reach back for the D3x after learning how Nikon does it in 2014/2015. Everything in the D3x is lightning responsive. No time delay for anything from menu maneuvers to shooting. The mirror and shutter even feel snappier than they are in the D4 or D4s, quite frankly. And while this may be a subjective misperception on my part, the D3X seems to focus my lenses faster than the D4 or D4s for stationary subjects. I have no objective timings to offer. This is just an impression. Don't get me wrong. I would not dare pit the D3x against D4/D4s for moving targets in a focus accuracy challenge. But for still life, it will meet or beat the newer models except in low-light/low-contrast conditions. At its list price, the D3x is difficult to justify. But you're here on eBay bargain-hunting. And at the prevailing "used" price of $2500 +/- it's a great investment IF you need the weather sealing and other attributes a full-pro body provides. The D810 has more resolution, better night vision and even a better-feeling shutter button. But I would not take the D810 out on a whale-watching cruise where it would be exposed to salt-water spray and potential knockabout. The D750 is better than the D3x in dim light and has virtually identical resolution. The D750 might also have slightly better dynamic range. That said, the D750 is far more fragile than the D3x. Bottom line: If you do not require a Nikon full-pro body, then the D750/D810 deliver as-good-or-better image quality than the D3x. But if you need a full-pro body and are frustrated with the resolution of the D4/D4s, then the D3x (at today's used prices) is a legitimate solution. Even when the D5 is released, I'd expect a low-actuations copy D3x to hold its value above $2000 well into 2016 whereas the low-res D3/D3s models will not. Need a camera to help you get that "money shot" and you can't risk not getting it? Think wedding shooter. A lightly-used D3x solves this problem as of August 2015. And with all the controls situated in familiar locations, the camera takes mere minutes to adapt to, even when stepping "backwards" from D4/D4s. Read full review

The ultimate machine.
Feels good. You know this is the bomb when you pick it up. The sound of the shutter gives you courage. The DF and std D3 are better in low light, but when the light is good or you are in the studio, this is the one I choose. My favorite feature.? You can lock the shutter speed or aperture so it doesn't change in the heat of battle.

I'm thrilled with my D3X. I was using a D700 and the D3X just blows it away. The lab I use for printing and framing commented that the skin tones on some portrait shots I did, were: "Just perfect" I love everything about this camera and feel very fortunate to have a near mint D3X for about 1/3rd the original MSRP. Just Awesome!
