  • pros
  • Extremely well built, with good weather sealing
  • Brilliant high ISO image quality - probably one of the best cameras around for shooting in low light
  • Produces sharp, detailed images with good resolved detail
  • Very good auto focus system
  • Perfectly substantial grip and ergonomics - everything is so spaced out
  • Fast, 9fps in FX mode for JPEGs
  • cons
  • Bulky and heavy, a good workout if you're looking to carry it all day
  • 12.1 megapixels was considered a mediocre resolution in 2008
  • AWB tends to add a warm cast under incandescent lighting
  • Menus are very complex, and memorising where which option is, is an uphill task
  • At close to 3 lakhs, did we mention it's expensive?

Digit Verdict: Nikon D3s - A killer professional body and the low-light champ Review

By Michael Browne

The Nikon D3s is a serious, professional body with quality and ergonomics to match. It is fast, and works very well in low light and at higher ISOs with an extended usable ISO range compared to most other dSLRs. This is the camera to shoot action in less than perfect light. If photography is your bread and butter and you can swallow the price (Rs. 2,89,950), you won't regret it. However, given well lit conditions, there are much better bodies around, with higher resolutions that would offer finer detail.
