24.5-megapixel Nikon D3x DSLR confirmed

We’ve been hearing whispers about an upcoming deluxe edition of the already high end Nikon D3 for a while now, but it seems the cat is finally out of the bag, official style.

The firm’s very own Nikon Pro magazine is running a preview on the full-frame DSLR, which will offer a 24.5-megapixel CMOS sensor – more than double the 12-megapixel one used on the existing D3. It will also have a slightly more powerful image processor: 16-bit rather than 14-bit.

But the resolution increase has resulted in a couple of drawbacks. The frame rate for continuous shooting has dropped from 9 frames per second to 5, while the D3’s massive maximum ISO 25,600 is 6,400 on the D3x.

Other specs and features remain largely unchanged.

The article doesn’t mention price or launch date, but it’s thought the camera could be available as early as next week. We’ll give you a shout when we know more.
