Nikon D3s

Main page

The Nikon D3s is a revised version of Nikon’s D3 model, see Background below.

This review will cover only what I feel are the key differences over the original D3, not a full-blown review. I will not be covering video. Pages will be added one-at-a-time.


The predecessor Nikon D3 established a well-deserved reputation for excellence in the areas of high quality imagery, along with the best noise performance yet seen in a DSLR. Color rendition and dynamic range also set new standards. But the D3s is clearly a big step forward over even the D3.
