Nikon D3s review

Posted by: Dennis Hissink Sunday 7th, February 2010

There is not much to comment about when it comes to the Nikon D3, however, Nikon has yet again updated the model. Most striking is the increase in sensitivity. The default sensitivity of the Nikon D3s ranges up to ISO 12,800, and using Hi3, an ISO equivalent of a staggering 102,400 can be reached. The number can already hardly be pronounced, let alone that you can actually imagine how sensitive it is. It's only a few years ago that it was considered a miracle if you were able to take pictures at ISO 1600, and in the film era, ISO 800 was in fact the limit.

Not that long ago, a large number of manufacturers presented their digital camera line on the PMA show floor. It had already been predicted that there would no longer be room for quite so many, and thus only for a handful of manufacturers. This is partially right, however, the offer of compact and DSLR cameras does not seem to have decreased. The compact camera has matured and true innovations are over, while the digital SLR is conquering more and more market share. The Micro Four Thirds system camera manufactured by Panasonic and Olympus, is the new kid on the block. Whether more manufacturers will adopt the Micro Four Thirds system during the PMA International Convention and Trade Show, or whether they will come with their own 'Micro' system like Samsung, remains to be seen.
