Nikon DLSR D3? 2007/11/30 10:15
Tokyo 23-ku
Hello, I've searched but most sites are in Japanese.
I will be visiting Tokyo soon and would like to buy a camera with an English manual. I'm interested in the
''Nikon DSLR D3''
Do you know of a specific shop I should visit? Directions or an English web-site would be great.
Also, if you own a D3, can you tell me your ''pros & cons'' about it.
Thanks Much!

Just go check around Akihabara. You will find enough shops selling them.

Check if you can download the English manual from the Nikon webpages; if you can than you have one worry less if you find a cheaper one without the English manual. You can always ask the people in the store to change the language of the camera itself to English.

anyone know? 2007/12/11 19:08
Hello all, I hope someone can answer a few questions about buying a camera in Japan for me.
1. Can I get U.S. electrical connections (for the camera, batteries and charger)?

2. If it is purchased in Japan is the warranty good in the U.S.?

I really appreciate any help,
Thanks


To Lars, The D-3 looks really nice, a bit to much for me right now "$5,000." I can't even find them here in the u.s. yet.

US and Japan share the same 2 pin/prong plug connection and also voltage. No problem there.

2. If it is purchased in Japan is the warranty good in the U.S.?
Only if there's International Warranty, for more info check with the shop.

100v/110v won't make a difference for the battery charger. The only thing you may notice is differing charge times between the two.

The charge time for a battery on 100V will be no different because the charger will be an electronic switch-mode charge.
