Nikon Unveils High-end D3S D-SLR

Nikon logoNikon unveiled its latest high-end professional level D-SLR camera today called the D3S. The camera has a 12.1-megapixel image sensor that allows the camera to capture photos in extremely low ambient light conditions that sports and news photographers deal with.

Nikon claims the D3S is the first camera to offer three additional boost levels up to Hi-3, an ISO equivalent of ISO 102,400. HD movie recording is integrated into the camera with the ability to capture video in 720p resolution at 24 fps in motion JPEG mode. Stereo sound is possible when using the input jack.

The video recording capability also has a "Save Selected" feature that lets the user save a still shot from any frame of the video. The camera has a 51-point autofocus system to allow for clear pictures of fast moving subjects. The camera also has three alternative crop modes that are all masked in the viewfinder. The modes include 5:4, 1.2x, and 24x16.

The camera also has a mode perfect for paparazzi called Quiet shutter that reduces the sound of the mirror return, wildlife photographers will also appreciate this mode. Burst shots can be taken at nine frames per second and the memory capacity is twice that of the D3 to allow longer bursts to be shot.

Nikon also equips the D3S with dual CF card slots for large amounts of storage. The images can be saved to both cards for a backup of images taken or one slot can be designated for movie recording only. The rear LCD is 3-inches and has 921k dots with Live View support. The camera will sell for $5,199.95 in the US for the body only.
