Nikon D3s low-light shooting

I’ve only looked at a few frames of tonight’s shoot, but below is one I like. Great praise goes to the Nikon D3s for preserving color at high ISO, but also to Nikon’s VR (vibration reduction) in the Nikon 105/2.8 VR, a lens to which I’m taking a keen liking for its low-light prowess. Here’s a Nikon wish list with both items, and more. Get yourself something you deserve, as none of us knows.

The 12-megapixel Nikon D3s should make your mouth water if you like photographing at dusk or at night. The image below is at ISO 12800. it is not noise free, but it’s better than any other camera I’ve tried, and not by a little bit.

I’ll post another batch of high-ISO images sometime soon, right after I finish my D3x to D3s ISO comparison series, perhaps as early as tomorrow for the series.

Nikon D3s + 105/2.8VR, 1/15 @ f/2.8 handheld, ISO 12800
Nikon D3s + 105/2.8VR, 1/40 @ f/5.6 handheld, ISO 6400 pushed 2 stops (=25600)
