The moment that many photography geeks have been waiting for has arrived. Nikon USA has finally unveiled Nikon D3s, the successor to Nikon’s hugely popular Nikon D3 Digital SLR camera!
Nikon USA has released their official press release on their new Nikon D3s Digital SLR camera and I’m still crunching all the details. Can’t really summarize what Nikon USA has released for us since they’re all juicy! Damn! I wish I could be more like Niki Needham (Product Manager, Nikon UK) right now for he sure knows his stuff.
Nikon D3s: Killer Features
Alright, here goes:
- It comes with a base ISO sensitivity of 200 to 12,800. If you think that’s cool, check this out. Photographers can further expand Nikon D3s sensitivity settings to ISO equivalent 25,600, 51,200 and even 102,400! Looks like Nikon D3s makes extreme low-light photography possible!
- Has a newly designed 12.1-megapixel CMOS sensor, complete with an Image Sensor Cleaning feature
- Shoots 1280 x 720 videos at 24fps and Nikon D3s is able to reduce that well known ‘rolling shutter’ effect
- Also comes with a new Quite Shutter Mode that seems to deliver shutter-noise reduction for photographers working on sensitive environment
Aw nuts! I can’t do this. The press release simply has too many technical jargons and only photography geeks can really understand them and I don’t want to waste my time deciphering. If you’re one of them, better get the full picture from the official press release. :)
One thing I do noticed from the press release is that Nikon D3s is outrageously expensive! Americans have to fork out $5,199.95 to get one! Nonetheless, professional photographer Yngve Ask that got the opportunity to test and play around with one brand new Nikon D3s Digital SLR camera a few days back really loves it and he has no problems in showing that on the following video.
