Details

Quite simply one of the best digital cameras available for purchase, the Nikon D3S single lens reflex camera is used by professional photographers in fields as diverse as sports photographers and veteran reporters in far-flung corners of the world. It's a monster of a digital camera to hold, beautifully designed, but of a substantial weight. It feels amazing when gripping, the rubberized side and bottom grips contour to the shape of the hand, and when the shutter is released, there's a satisfying positive click of vibration from the shutter within. Reviewers fall in love with the Nikon D3S, and it's with good reason when considering the premium list of features in the design specifications. The camera has a 12.1 megapixel CMOS sensor, but pay little attention to the number as it's a full-frame sensor capable of shooting images and high-definition video in incredible detail at ISO values from 200-12800, with next to no noise. The crisp detail, captured in each image, is saved as a JPEG or as Nikon's own proprietary RAW format, NEF. There are also options to save images in RAW + JPEG and TIFF. All of this processing power is possible by use of Nikon's EXSPEED processing technology, which also allows for the buffering of an impressive 42 RAW images or 130 JPEGs. This is a powerful camera. Built from tough magnesium alloy materials, and weatherproofed to meet any kind of outdoor conditions, the Nikon D3S is uniquely qualified for professional photographers. It'll take punishment and keep on shooting. The image shooting will take very large photographs at 9 frames per second, the shutter chattering like a machine, precision engineered for performance and quality. When taking photographs on a D3S, it takes the skills of a professional to take advantage of all of the features of the camera. There's a 3" LCD monitor for changing settings, but composing a picture is best done through the fully optical viewfinder. An overlay of relevant exposure information is seen through the viewfinder, as well as metering information and the 51-point autofocus mode. A live view mode is available when shooting video, which records at 720p, 24 frames per second. It's an adequate video mode, but there's no denying that the Nikon D3S is primarily a professional still camera. The features present in the camera threaten to fill a small manual of their own. Dual CF card slots ensure plenty of room for taking pictures, and the rechargeable lithium-ion battery is rated to keep going, taking 4800 pictures on one charge.
