Nikon Unveils New D3S FX Full Frame DSLR Camera

Nikon D3S FX Full Frame DSLR Camera

Nikon today launched the new full frame D3S professional digital SLR camera, featuring a base ISO sensitivity range from ISO 200 to an impressive ISO 12,800 extendable to a staggering ISO 102,400.

Nikon said the D3S enables not only new opportunities in low-light photography, but also provides photographers with added shutter speed and aperture freedom. The D3S has a continuous shooting speed of 9 frames per second.

The D3S touts a completely re-designed 12.1-megapixel FX-format CMOS sensor, which measures 36×23.9mm which provides ample space for its bigger 8.45-micron pixels and results in cleaner images even at much higher ISOs.

The company adds that the refined D-Movie mode for the FX-format D3S offers smooth 1280×720 video at a cinematic 24fps, with a new algorithm that severely reduces the phenomenon of “rolling shutter” typical to D-SLRs while panning.

Nikon will begin rolling out the D3S in late November at a retail price of $5200, body only.
