Nikon D3 First Use

Nikon D3

Wondering how impressive the Nikon D3 can be in the wild? James Russell over at Luminous Landscape got to use one while shooting an assignment in Osaka, Japan and seems very impressed.

Being a RAW shooter, he was apprehensive about testing it since the RAW tools for the D3 were not yet up to speed. Because of this, he used JPG for his out. Surprisingly, the untouched JPG output was so good that he could apply his RAW workflow to it and achieve the results he wants.

I don’t think it would be a surprise to see most pros shoot with a Nikon D3 in 2008, because it seems to be every camera it was designed to be.
