DX

NPhoto - - Feature -

Nikon makes dig­i­tal SLRs in two for­mats. The smaller, cheaper DX-for­mat cam­eras use sen­sors about the same size as old APS-C film, mea­sur­ing around 24x16mm (half the size of the full-frame sen­sors in Nikon’s higher-end FX-for­mat cam­eras). Tech­ni­cally, this re­duces the im­age qual­ity, but the bar is now set pretty high and it’s pos­si­ble for DX-for­mat cam­eras like the D500 to pro­duce su­per-sharp bill­board-size im­ages that only an ex­pert could tell from their FX-shot equiv­a­lents.
