Los Angeles State Historic Park – Cirque Berserk

This was the first capture I made with a Nikon D3 back in 2009. I bought it to replace a Nikon D200 that I had dropped on a shoot. For the first time I thought that digital had finally caught up and was equal to the quality of scanned 35mm transparency film. After that, I never looked back.

  1. I’ve changed my mind I want to do that with my flowers in macro!! Now I’ve done it, I’ve crossed the line. I’ve got to get a Nikon and a macro lens! {lottery ticket in my future!} 😆
    Is the D3 the only Nikon that has this capability?

    • The Nikon D3 has been discontinued and replaced by the D4. The D4 has the same capabilities as the D3 with some minor improvements mainly in the area of speed which you don’t need. The price is $6,000 US.

      I would suggest the newly released Nikon D800 which costs half of what a D4 costs. It has triple the resolution, and an even better way to attain rich color and more dynamic range. From Nikon’s web site:

      Expand dynamic range with built-in HDR: Create a single image revealing an extremely wide dynamic range, but with less noise and rich color gradation than ever before. Combine two exposures at up to 3EV.

      Since you do mostly landscape/macro photography I would get a D800e (release date in May). It is exactly like the D800 except it has no high pass filter over the sensor which will give you finer detail. Best of luck on winning the lottery!
