We've just posted our first set of test shots from a production-level Nikon D3S digital SLR, straight from the lab.
The Nikon D3S is based on the company's previous D3 design. Image resolution is unchanged at twelve effective megapixels, but the CMOS image sensor and EXPEED image processor are both new designs. This has allowed Nikon to significantly expand the camera's ISO sensitivity range, as well as add a new high-definition 24 frames-per-second 720p (1,280 x 720 pixel) movie mode. Nikon has also included its Dust Reduction System in the D3S, making the camera its first full-frame model to include both a 100% coverage viewfinder and dust reduction functionality. See our Nikon D3S preview for more details, and the Nikon D3S Samples page for all the test images we've shot so far, including links to select RAW files. Gallery shots taken at the Nikon press event in October are still available here, as well as sample videos here. Stay tuned for more Nikon D3S test shots from the lab in the coming days!
