Nikon FX Cameras
The Nikon D3: Nikon's first FX camera of 2007.
This ad-free website's biggest source of support is when you use those or any of these links to my personally-approved sources when you get anything, regardless of the country in which you live. Canon does not seal its boxes in any way, so never buy at retail or any other source not on my personally approved list since you'll have no way of knowing if you're missing accessories, getting a defective, damaged, returned, store demo or used camera. Buy only from the approved sources I use myself for the best prices, service, return policies and selection. Thanks for helping me help you! Ken.
In the beginning, Nikon made 35mm film cameras. They've shot film with an image size of 24 x 36mm since the 1940s.
In 2007, Nikon introduced the Nikon D3, the first Nikon digital camera to use an image sensor the same size as 35mm film.
Nikon cleverly dubbed this new digital format as FX, which is much less cumbersome and more precise than saying "full-frame."
In 2008, Nikon introduced their second FX camera, the D700.
FX cameras take every lens. They work wonderfully with old film lenses, even manual focus if you care to bother.
FX cameras can crop their sensors to use DX lenses. This wastes much of the capability of the FX cameras, but it doesn't waste the DX lenses. (DX lenses have reduced image circles that only cover the smaller DX sensor.)
