Nikon D3s low-light performance

Just published in DAP are examples from the Nikon D3s at ISO 12800. To my eye, these are the best high-ISO results I’ve ever seen from any camera. If you’re looking for a shoot anything, anywhere in any light camera the D3s is it! See my Dec 2 blog entry.

At about $5199, Nikon has held the line on pricing (given the crash of the US dollar), and the D3s looks to be a uniquely versatile camera. With most cameras, ISO 12800 either does not exist or produces really nasty results. Not so with the D3s, where I could consistently obtain high quality images at ISO 12800, and even at ISO 25600.

If you like to shoot in low light, don’t walk, run, and go get the D3s.
