Well, the camera everybody on earth already knew about has finally been announced. The Nikon D3s is pretty much the same D3 except in a few ways. Here are the high points:
- new 1280x720 24P high definition video
- ISO 200 - 12,800 is now standard, expandable to ISO equivalent of 102,400
- new anti-dust Sensor Cleaning function. About time!!
- Larger buffer with up to 48 RAW frames (was 18 in the D3)
There are other small enhancemenets, but these are pretty much the ones that I chose to report on. As many of my friends already know, my D3 was stolen when we were burglarized last month. Some of our items have been recovered, and some are still out there. For my next safari, I will be taking a D700 and a D300, both with portrait grips. I suspect I will end up buying the D3s when it hits the shelves soon.
