Nikon D3x Digital SLR - Test Shots – Exposure Evaluation



View All

”A range of general test shots are shown over the next two pages. Unfortunately there are no full-size downloadable pictures today, because the huge file sizes from this 24.5MP monster would trash our bandwidth. ”


Subtle colour variations are captured smoothly.


Exposure metering is extremely reliable.


The D3x also has a handy optional time-travel feature, very useful if you’re on a tight deadline, but be careful when setting it up because it’s quite fiddly, and it’s very easy to overshoot by a few millennia.


Fortunately the D3x’s battery duration is excellent, because I don’t think they had anywhere to plug the charger in. This shot was taken at 6400 ISO in near darkness.


While wandering about in the early iron age I bumped into one of my own distant ancestors. Luckily I was able to resist the temptation to kill him just to see what sort of temporal paradox would result. This was also shot at 6400 ISO in near darkness.
