Nikon D3S Digital SLR Camera Body {12.1 M/P} Description


The Nikon D3s is a professional DSLR camera with a lot of good features. Featuring a quick start up time, and a weather sealed magnesium alloy body (featuring a bottom grip with a second shutter button for easier portraits), this camera is ready for anything. Inside there is a 12.1 megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor. A feature that makes this camera great for action is the 11 fps burst rate (in DX mode) and the ability to take 30 RAW photos in one burst. On the back there is a big 3'', 922,000 pixel display that is great for checking recent photos and going through menus. This camera is a professional's tool that is ready for any situation whether it be action, sports, landscape, studio, portrait, or nature photography.

Introduced in 2009, the Nikon D3S 12.1 megapixel camera is a professional full frame digital single lens reflex camera. One of Nikon's four DSLRs to feature a full frame sensor, but Nikon's first full frame camera to have HD video recording. The D3S has a high image sensor sensitivity with up to ISO 102400, image sensor cleaning, improved autofocus and metering, and up to 4,200 frames per battery life. D3S also features Nikon's fast, efficient, and comprehensive EXPEED processor.

  • The Nikon D3S DSLR uses the 51-point AF System to deliver fast focus
  • Continuous 9 fps in FX format and 11 fps in DX Crop format
  • Intuitive scene recognition system that deciphers brightness and color information raising the overall accuracy of multiple flash control
  • Low noise HD video quality
  • Self-diagnostic shutter

Like many of Nikon DSLRs, the D3S construction consist of rugged and precise magnesium alloy. Nikon's choice of construction protects against dust, moisture, and electromagnetic interference.

Rugged construction houses barrier-breaking technologies, delivering low-noise 12,800 ISO still shooting at up to 9-fps, with exceptionally rich 24-fps HD video. Newly engineered for striking image fidelity and low-noise, optimizing pixel size and count in a 12.1-megapixel sensor to produce extraordinarily rich files.
