FX

NPhoto - - Feature -

Nikon’s FX cam­eras have larger sen­sors the same size as the old 35mm film neg­a­tive, mea­sur­ing around 36x24mm. This gives them twice the area of the DX sen­sor, and in­creases the po­ten­tial im­age qual­ity as a re­sult. The larger sen­sor pushes up the price, how­ever, and it also re­quires larger, more ex­pen­sive lenses. Al­most all pro­fes­sional Nikon D-SLR users choose FX cam­eras over DX mod­els, though, so if you in­tend mak­ing money from your hobby, the pres­sure to move up to the larger for­mat is strong.
