Incredible low-light photography
The completely redesigned 12.1 effective megapixel image sensor has a large pixel pitch with a modified inner structure that enables the Nikon D3s digital SLR to capture images under light conditions that previously have been near impossible. Ideal for news and sports photographers, the ISO range of 200-12,800 (seven stop) enables image and movie capture in low ambient light conditions. In addition, the Nikon D3s has three additional ISO boost levels, right up to Hi-3 - an ISO equivalent of an eye-popping 102,400.

FX format HD movies
Tipping its hat to the latest trend for movie capture on digital SLRs, the Nikon D3s utilises its large FX-format sensor and exploits the creative depth-of-field effects. Movies can be captured at 720p / 24fps in motion JPEG with stereo sound using the input jack. The file format enables a 'Save Selected' function, a unique frame option that allows the user to shoot video safe in the knowledge that still images of a key moment can be transmitted as well.

Image sensor cleaning
Based on feedback from professional photographers, Nikon have introduced an image sensor cleaning function that generates four different frequencies of vibration to reduce the impact of static dust collection on the optical low-pass filter of the image sensor. The 100% viewfinder coverage is not affected by this feature.

Flexible cropping meets awesome autofocus
The Nikon D3s digital SLR offers three options for cropping, each one masked automatically in the viewfinder. Choose from 5:4 (30x24); 1.2x (30x20); and DX (24x16). These cropping options have been designed to offer a practical combination of lens magnification & slightly reduced file size. The Nikon D3s also includes the impressive high-density 51-point Multi-CAM3500 FX system with 15- highly sensitive cross points. The Nikon D3s contrast detection AF system has been tuned to provide autofocus support during movie capture and Live View.

Quiet Shutter Mode
The Nikon D3s digital SLR features a Quiet Shutter release mode that enables the photographer to mitigate the sound of the mirror return, a useful feature for wildlife photographers in particular. This feature was also introduced as a result of feedback from users of the Nikon D3.

A view from Nikon
Robert Cristina, Manager, Professional Products for Nikon Europe, comments: “The D3S rewrites the rules for extreme low light photography, enabling photographers to take control of ambient light. Professionals from all over the world have contributed to making the best even better.”
