It's about time: Nikon announces full-frame sensor
Rob Galbraith’s site today reported that Nikon has just announced two new cameras. One, the new D3 is a 12 megapixel powerhouse (above) and it finally brings Nikon users in to the full-frame game. Welcome Nikonians, to the full-frame goodness we Canon users know and love and have been desperate to share with you. (See more details HERE.) Nikon also announced the D300, full details HERE.
Rather than repeat it all here, I’ll let you follow the links above to Galbraith’s site for the news. I’m not much of a techy-geek and don’t know Nikon’s line well enough to make meaningful comments. But for the Nikon shooters I know this is going to be a big deal.
Canon has recently release the 40D, and the specs are really solid, but I don’t think it’s the same leap forward that Nikon is making here. Now, to be fair, they’re a little late to the full-frame game and to the low-noise-at-high-ISO game too, but this isn’t a competition. Well it is but we consumers aren’t the players, we just reap the happy benefits of this competitive industry. So we all win.
