By Fred Gagnon

Nikon D700 Digital SLR Camera is a full frame digital single lens reflex camera. Meaning, its image sensor has the same size as a 35mm film frame. It has 12.1 megapixel FX-format CMOS imaging sensor. With this camera, you can produce and reproduce high quality images. And because of its advanced features, it is recommended for professional photographers.

Nikon D700 Digital SLR Camera has a low noise capability. It has broad tonal range and depth and extremely low noise ranging from ISO 200 to 6400. It can get clean images at ISO 1600. It also features wide angle capabilities.

It uses EN-EL3e Lithium-ion battery, which enables the camera to continuously shoot up to 5 frames per second. But you can also use it with the optional MB-D10 Multi-power battery pack. This powerful battery enables the camera to shoot up to 8 frames per second at full resolution. For accelerated information, it uses the 12-channel readout to quickly write image data onto the CompactFlash card.

Nikon D700 is a very fast digital SLR camera. It has a start up time of 0.12 seconds and a shutter lag response time of 0.40 milliseconds. Its shutter mechanism was tested to 150,000 cycles. The entire shutter mechanism, as well as the mirror box, is made of materials that can resist tiny particles that usually affect image quality.

It has a 3-inch super-density 920,000-dot VGA color monitor and features 170-degree wide-angle viewing. Also, it features calibrated color and tempered-glass protection. It also has two Live View filming modes that allow photographers to frame a shot using its high-resolution color monitor. These modes are hand-held and tripod.

It also has the Nikon EXPEED image processor, which comprehensively optimizes your images. Along with its 51-point auto focusing system with 3D focus chasing and 1,005-pixel 3D color Matrix Metering System II, these features give exposure accuracy.

This camera is the very first Nikon camera that has the active dust reduction and moisture protection system. It can clean itself during start up and shot down by vibrating. With its four vibration frequencies, image degrading dusts and tiny particles are removed from the sensors optical low-pass filter.

It utilizes a wide and bright 0.72x magnification viewfinder with 95% coverage. With this camera, you will be able to see exactly what the lens sees because it uses an eye-level pentaprism.
