Nikon D3x 24MP DSLR Rumors Solidify Around Dec. 1

Illustration for article titled Nikon D3x 24MP DSLR Rumors Solidify Around Dec. 1

The trail of evidence pointing to a D3x unveiling by Nikon next month has gotten pretty solid in the last few weeks. Nikon Rumors rounds it all up, and it's fairly convincing forensic scene. Update: The D3x is on Nikon's site! Besides the firmware for the long-rumored 24-megapixel full-frame DSLR popping up way back in April, Nikon's scheduled several worldwide events for Dec. 1, a bunch of accessories makers have had products "designed" for a D3x, and topping the list, the D3 itself has gotten cheap, coming down to about $4200. Plus, some retailers are saying couldn't place D3 orders anymore. Or maybe this is all crap and Nikon is just going to reveal they've replaced Rudolph's nose with a 24MP camera for live Santa vision.

DISCUSSION

OK, if your number one concern is "best image quality"—and, frankly, why should your number one concern be anything else?—here's how it is likely to break down:

Ultra-Clean High ISO Images:

D3 and D700 (both full-frame 12MP)

Clean High ISO Images:

D300 (smaller sensor 12MP) and D3X (full-frame 24MP)

All other considerations are, to my mind, secondary.
