Nikon Announces D3X


Nikon has finally introduced another poorly kept secret, the D3X. Its a 25 megapixel D3. So very low nice and very large files! About a 140MB NEF file to be more precise. I am actually very happy to see the news, I was battling my bank book about buying the D300 a few months ago or waiting for the oft rumored D3X. Now that I have seen the specs and the PRICE, I’m quite content with my D300. Now when there is a high megapixel D300, I may be in a bit more trouble… Buy yours here and win a prize!
