DIgitalReview.ca, in cooperation with Nikon Canada, has published some D3 high ISO photographs shot at a Toronto Blue Jays baseball game by professional sports photographers. Users can download the image samples in JPEG format which were shot at 4000 and 6400 ISO.
Scott Kelby, Editor and Publisher of Photoshop User and Layers Magazine, and President of the National Association of Photoshop Professionals (NAPP). Is the photographer to be blown away by the D3’s capabilities. Some excerpts from Scott’s site:
“You’ve gotta understand; this isn’t just an improvement in the noise and detail—this is way beyond that. Without sounding corny (though it still will), this is like a new dawn in the digital camera era, and now I can see where noise will soon be a non-issue.”
Wedding photographer Cliff Mautner has gotten his hands on a D3 and posted some high ISO wedding photos that show the amazing capabilities of this new camera. Cleary Cliff was impressed with the camera, here’s an excerpt from his experience with Nikon’s newest flagship:
“My first impressions, as expected, were mind blowing. To be brief, I’m stunned at how responsive this camera is and I didn’t believe there was much room for improvement to the way the D2xs handled. I was clearly wrong. The Focus, feel of the shutter, focus point selection, enormous LCD, auto white balance, dynamic range, color rendition, and a few other things have all been written about and touted, but nothing prepared me for the incredible quality of the files out of camera. In addition, the high ISO performance, which was also talked about, is nothing short of revolutionary… This camera literally changes the rules of photography and will simply allow me to capture things like never before. “
