It doesn't include a higher-resolution sensor -- it's still 12.1 megapixels -- and its controls are nearly identical to the D3, but the Nikon D3S does include two major improvements that make this professional digital SLR worth considering: better high ISO performance and HD video capability.
The D3 broke new ground in low-light photography, but the Nikon D3S takes it even further with a sensor that can practically see in the dark. Maxing out at ISO 102,400 is great for the headlines, but the true beauty of the Nikon D3S digital camera is the ability to crank up the ISO to 6,400 and still print sharp, detailed images at 16x24 inches. Add 720p video capture to that high-ISO capability, and the possibilities multiply. The Nikon D3S proves to be a capable digital video camera, taking advantage of Nikon's excellent lenses to produce quality you're used to seeing in the movie theater.
