Nikon D3 and Canon EOS 1Ds Mark III

Update: I’m told I should have a Nikon D3 available tomorrow (Friday). Look for some initial impressions here over the weekend.

My Nov 8 comments on the Nikon D3 still stand—I hope to have a D3 in hand this week or next, but it’s not clear I’ll be one of the privileged few to be able to obtain one. Same deal for the Canon EOS 1Ds Mark III.

My approach in reviewing these cameras might be different this time. In the past I’ve spent several months shooting and preparing, culminating in one big review. That approach has merit—experience over several months helps rule out mistakes and yields perspective. But it also means that portions of the review that are ready just sit and wait until the whole thing is complete. It means that anyone interested in one of the cameras is deprived of what might be highly-useful information as well. Also, there is no feedback along the way.

So this time I’m considering a different approach, ending up with a similar end-product, but releasing portions at a time so that readers can benefit along the way. I can also prioritize testing according to feedback.

In short, I’m considering a subscription-style review with regular updates. If you have any strong feelings on that approach (in either direction) please let me know what you think. Please use email subject “diglloyd inquiry: thoughts on D3/1Ds3 review”.
