D3/D700 Compared
Here we compare the D700 against it’s big brother, the D3. As you can see from the table below, the differences are actually quite minor.

Feature D3 D700
Effective Pixels 12.1 million
Image Sensor CMOS sensor, 36.0 x 23.9 mm; Nikon FX format
Total Pixels 12.87 million
Dust Reduction Via Dust-Off reference photo only Image sensor self-cleaning, Dust-Off reference photo

N/A
File Format
  1. NEF (RAW): 12 or 14 bit, lossless compressed, compressed, or uncompressed
  2. TIFF (RGB)
  3. JPEG: JPEG-Baseline compliant with fine (approx. 1:4), normal (approx. 1:8), or basic (approx. 1:16) compression ([Size priority]); [Optimal quality] compression available
  4. NEF (RAW) + JPEG: Single photograph recorded in both NEF (RAW) and JPEG formats
Picture Control System Four setting options: Standard, Neutral, Vivid, Monochrome; each option can be adjusted
Storage Media CompactFlash (Type I/II, compliant with UDMA); Microdrives CompactFlash (Type I, compliant with UDMA)

Looks like they’ve dropped Type II support here – probably not a big issue for most.

Double Slot Slot 2 can be used for overflow or backup storage or for separate storage of NEF (RAW) and JPEG images Single-slot only.
File System Compliant with DCF 2.0, DPOF and Exif 2.21 Compliant with DCF 2.0, DPOF, Exif 2.21, Pictbridge
Viewfinder
Viewfinder SLR-type with fixed eye-level pentaprism
Diopter adjustment -3 to +1 m-1
Eyepoint 18 mm (-1.0 m-1)
Focusing Screen Type B BriteView Clear Matte VI screen Type B BriteView Clear Matte VI screen with superimposed AF points and framing grid lines

It’s nice to see the return of the on-demand grid lines; however many people prefer the D3’s less cluttered AF point display

Frame Coverage Approx. 100% (vertical/horizontal) Approx. 95% (vertical/horizontal)
Magnification Approx. 0.7x (50mm f/1.4 lens at infinity; -1.0 m-1) Approx. 0.72x (50mm f/1.4 lens at infinity; -1.0 m-1)

We’ll call this one a draw; the viewfinders should be practically the same size, the magnification factor makes up for the fact that the D700’s coverage is only 95%.

Reflex Mirror Quick-return type
Depth-of-field Preview When CPU lens is attached, lens aperture can be stopped down to value selected by user (A and M modes) or value selected by camera (P and S modes)
Lens Aperture Instant-return type, with depth-of-field preview button
Shutter
Type Electronically controlled vertical-travel focal-plane shutter
Lifetime 300,000 actuations 150,000 actuations

The shutter in the D700 isn’t as robust as that of the D3 – having said that, 150,000 shots is a lot.

Speed 1/8,000 to 30 s in steps of 1/3, 1/2 or 1 EV; Bulb 1/8,000 to 30 s in steps of 1/3, 1/2 or 1 EV; Bulb; X250
Flash Sync Speed X = 1/250 s; flash synchronization at up to 1/250 s X = 1/250 s; synchronizes with shutter at 1/320 s or slower (flash range drops at speeds between 1/250 and 1/320 s)

5fps max with just the body, increasing to 8fps max with the MB-D10 and EN-EL4 (not the EN-EL3e – you’ll need the bigger battery to get the higher rates)

Smaller and lighter than the D3, but not by as much as you might expect. This is still one hefty camera.

Of course, if you add the MB-D10 grip, things change – the D700 actually becomes larger than the D3.
