  • July 1st, 2008
    - Nikon has today officially introduced the 12.1 MP Nikon D700 FX format (equivalent to 35mm format) digital SLR, a camera that comes as no surprise to those who visit the online photography blogs and chat rooms. News of the soon to be released Nikon D700 came to light a few days ago when a worker in the Chinese factory where the D700 brochure was being printed captured images of the copy layout complete with Nikon D700 product images (used a cell phone camera), and then posted them on a web site.

    We were unable to respond to related email requests for information and comment on the D700, since we were under a Non Disclosure Agreement (NDA) with Nikon until today.

    So if you have been away from the computer, what is the Nikon D700? It is basically a Nikon D300 sized version of the Nikon D3 digital SLR. The major advancements in performance and design that were first introduced with the Nikon D3 and D300 have been incorporated in the D700 along with a few differentiating features and functionality.

    We will look at these enhancements in more detail as well as how the Nikon D700 compares side by side with the D300 and the D3. We begin by looking at the Nikon D700 major features.

    Nikon D700 Digital SLR: Major new features


  • Large FX format image sensor, developed by Nikon; 12.1 effective megapixels (same as the Nikon D3)

    The D700 employs an FX-format CMOS image sensor with an area of 36.0mm (h) x 23.9mm (v). High-speed, 12-channel readout enables fast continuous shooting of high-resolution images.


  • Viewfinder provides 95% frame coverage, 0.72x magnification in FX format

    The viewfinder on the Nikon D700 features an eye-level pentaprism with high refraction index and provides 95% frame coverage with 0.72x magnification. Fifty-one AF points and a framing grid are superimposed on the finder screen. The eyepoint is 18 mm (at –0.1 m-1), and the diopter can be adjusted within a range of –3 to +1 m-1.


  • Wide ISO range for superb low light shooting

    The D700 offers a wide sensitivity range of ISO 200 to 6400, and offers the same usable extended sensitivity range as the Nikon D3 SLR featuring selections that can be increased from HI 0.3, HI 0.5, HI 0.7, HI 1 (ISO 12,800 equivalent), HI 2 (ISO 25,600 equivalent), or decreased to Lo 1 (ISO 100 equivalent), Lo 0.7, Lo 0.5 and Lo 0.3, to expand shooting versatility.

    Since the Nikon D700 incorporates the same sensor as the higher end Nikon D3, featuring the adoption of gapless on-chip microlenses that improve light concentration characteristics that provide broader dynamic range and high-sensitivity characteristics, we anticipate that the D700 will deliver the same excellent image quality at low sensitivity settings with very low-noise characteristics at ISO settings as high as 6400.


    If the output mirrors the Nikon D3, shooters using the D700 should be able to push the envelope and get usable results at 12800 ISO. Once we get our hands on a Nikon D700 production camera for testing we will confirm these expectations.



  • Nikon D700 with optional MB-D10 vertical release battery grip
    (Same as the one for the Nikon D300 SLR)


  • High-speed performance

    The Nikon D700 features a startup time of approximately 0.12 second, and a shutter release time lag of only 40 ms— both equivalent to the Nikon D3. The continuous shooting speed is up to 5 frames per second with the included Rechargeable Li-ion Battery EN-EL3e, and up to 8 fps when using the optional Multi-Power Battery Pack MB-D10 and Rechargeable Li-ion Battery EN-EL4a/4 or eight AA-size batteries.


  • Optional Multi-Power Battery Pack MB-D10

    The Nikon MB-D10 is equipped with a shutter-release button for vertical shots.

    The grip features a main-command dial, sub-command dial, and AF-ON button for controling settings when shooting vertically.

    One Rechargeable Li-ion Battery EN-EL3e, EN-EL4a, or EN-EL4a can be used. 8 AA batteries can be used instead.

    Battery level display: 6-level indicator available when using a EN-EL3e, EN-EL4, EN-EL4a battery or 3-level indicator when using AA batteries


    The Nikon D700 provides support for Type I Compact Flash (CF) cards (no microdrives if you still have them), and features one card slot compared to the two card slots and Type I and II CF support provided by the Nikon D3.

    Like the Nikon D3 and the D300, the D700 is compliant with next-generation high-speed UDMA CompactFlash cards that enable up to 35-Mbyte recording speed.


  • High-definition, 3-inch VGA, TFT LCD monitor with wide viewing angle

    The ultrahigh-definition 920,000-dot VGA, 3-inch LCD monitor with tempered glass provides a 170 degree viewing angle. The large monitor is remarkably effective when confirming the focus with enlarged playback images. The wide viewing angle enables easy recomposing of the frame in Hand-held mode with Live View.

    Compatible with the Nikon Creative Lighting System, the built-in flash controls up to two groups of remote units as a master/commander in Advanced Wireless Lighting.


  • Optional WT-4 Wireless Transmitter (same as D300 and the D3)

  • Nikon WT-4 Wireless Transmitter   The WT-4 is a high-performance stand alone wireless transmitter that offers image transfer capabilities when connected with the Nikon D700, D3 or D300 via USB cable.

    It supports wireless LAN conforming to IEEE 802.11b/g, IEEE 802.11a, and wired LAN conforming to IEEE 802.3u (100BASE-TX) and IEEE 802.3 (10BASE-T). Transmission range when wireless LAN is used is approx. 180 m (IEEE 802.11b/g) or 260 m (IEEE 802.11a). (Varies according to transmission conditions.)

    Four connection modes are available:

    • Image Transfer mode: Images stored in a memory card and those just taken can be transferred and saved (computer or FTP server)

    • Thumbnail Select mode: Thumbnail images can be displayed on a connected computer, and selected images can be downloaded and saved.

    • PC mode: With Camera Control Pro 2 (optional), camera settings can be controlled and images taken can be transferred and saved on a computer.

    • Printer mode: JPEG images stored in a memory card can be transferred to a printer connected with a computer.


  • DX cropping mode

    The Nikon D700 lets you select from either FX format (36 x 24) or DX format (24 x 16). At the default setting of Auto DX crop, the camera will automatically select DX format when a DX Nikkor lens is attached.

    When Custom menu a6 [AF point illumination] is set at Auto (default) or On, the DX area is bordered by a solid line frame. Set to Off the DX crop area is bounded by a darker frame.

  • Image Sensor Cleaning

    The Nikon D700 incorporates a self-cleaning sensor unit which uses ultra-sonic vibration to remove dust and foreign matter that has stuck to the camera's Optical Low Pass Filter (OLPF).

    The shutter unit's drive mechanism and other moving parts on the Nikon D700 are also designed so that as little dust as possible is created during operation. The shutter unit itself is operated before insertion in the camera to limit the amount of dust dispersed after assembly. Breaking in also controls the amount of dust created with operation of moving parts inside the camera.

    Anti-static processes are used around the image sensor and OLPF to prevent dust and foreign matter from attaching to these components. The space between the OLPF and the image sensor, as well as the edges surrounding the rear surface of the image sensor, are sealed to prevent the introduction of dust or foreign matter to these components.

  • Scene Recognition System (SRS)

    Nikon's scene recognition system technology was first introduced with the Nikon D300 and the Nikon D3 digital SLR's and is also incorporated in the D700.

    SRS advances the use of Nikon’s 1,005-segment sensor to recognize colours and light patterns that helps the camera to determine the type of subject and scene being photographed, before a picture is taken. The information is used by the camera to improve the accuracy of autofocus, auto exposure and auto white balance functions. Nikon's SRS provides;


    Improved subject identification performance: information from the 1,005-segment RGB sensor is used to identify the background and any human subjects, and contributes to sharp focus by detecting where the subject's face is positioned. Human subjects are given higher priority when using Auto Area A.

    Enhanced Color Matrix Metering II algorithms: metering data from the 1,005-segment RGB sensor is used to detect the areas of highlights. The range of brightness to be reproduced is calculated from the results of highlight analysis and more precise exposure control can be acheived.
  • The Nikon D700 features light source inference employing subject distance information and integrated pattern recognition to optimize auto white balance.

    Nikon's 1005-segment RGB sensor found in the Nikon D300 Digital SLR contributes to the functions of the new Scene Recognition System


  • AF system with high-density 51-point AF offering the same focus capability as the Nikon D3

    The D700 incorporates Nikon's Multi-CAM 3500FX autofocus sensor which features 51 AF points. Fifteen cross-type sensors located in the center of the frame enable subject detection with lens apertures as small as f/5.6. The functioning of the AF points is linked to the Scene Recognition System, to deliver superior subject detection and focus tracking performance.

    A single AF point can be selected from the 51 or 11 focus points. In Dynamic-area AF mode, you can select from either 9, 21 or 51 AF areas. The 51-point option offers 3D-Tracking mode, which automatically shifts the focus point to match the subject’s movements. Auto-area AF mode gives greater priority to the subject’s position when selecting AF points.


  • HDMI output (High-Definition TV) supported

  •   The Nikon D700 complies with HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) Ver. 1.3a for the transfer of global-standard video and audio signals. A Type C mini HDMI connector is provided on the D700.



  • Picture Control System (same as D300 and D3)


    The Picture Control System found in the Nikon D700 makes it easier to select and apply desired adjustments and create optimized settings to suit individual image appearance preferences.  

    These settings can be used to fine-tune multiple Nikon D300 or D3 bodies, assuring consistent rendering from camera to camera.

    The Picture Control System offers four basic setting options – Standard, Neutral, Vivid and Monochrome.

     


    These can be directly modified for easy adjustment and customization of image parameters, (sharpening, tone compensation, brightness, tone and saturation). Custom names can be added and up to 9 Custom Picture Controls can be stored in the camera.

    The “Color mode” and “Optimize image” settings found in the D200 that are the closest to Nikon Picture Controls are:

    Color mode “I”: closest to “Standard” Picture Control
    Color mode “II”: closest to “Neutral” Picture Control
    Color mode “III”: closest to “Vivid” Picture Control

  • Active D-Lighting optimizes tone reproduction in both shadows and highlights

    The Active D-lighting menu on the Nikon D700 now includes a D-Lighting 'Auto' setting as well as the selectable Low, Normal, High and Off settings found on the Nikon D300 and the D3.


  • Active D-Lighting, when enabled, provides real-time highlight and shadow correction with optimized image contrast. Active D-Lighting produces broader tone reproduction in both shadows and highlights by controlling highlights and exposure compensation while applying localized tone control technology to achieve a more pleasing level of contrast across the entire image. And because the advantages of Active D-Lighting are applied as images are captured, image editing time can be shortened.
