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.
|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|
|Image Size (FX)||
|Image Size (DX)||
|Image Size (5:4)||3,552 x 2,832
2,656 x 2,120
1,776 x 1,416
|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||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|
|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)|
*With Continuous-servo AF, S or M exposure mode, shutter speed 1/250 s or faster; other settings are set at “Default”.
|Continuous Shooting Speed||1-9 frames per second in [CL] mode, 9 fps (9-11 fps in DX) in [CH] mode.||With Rechargeable Li-ion Battery EN-EL3e: 1-5 frames per second in [CL] mode, 5 fps in [CH] modeWith Multi-Power Battery Pack MB-D10 with batteries other than Rechargeable Li-ion Battery EN-EL3e or AC Adapter EH-5a/EH-5: 1-7 frames per second in [CL] mode, 8 fps in [CH] mode
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)
|Self-timer||Electronically controlled timer with duration of 2, 3, 10 or 20 s|
|Metering||TTL full-aperture exposure metering using 1,005-pixel RGB sensor|
|Exposure Meter Coupling||Combined CPU and AI|
|Exposure Compensation||±5 EV in increments of 1/3, 1/2 or 1 EV|
|Exposure Lock||Exposure locked at detected value with AE-L/AF-L button|

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.
