Nikon D3s Specs?

Gah! A Nikon Post!
Yes, it matters what they’re up to. I only post Nikon stuff close to an announcement.

October 14/15, 2009
Nikon will be announcing the successor to the highly successful D3 this week. I’ve received some CR3 info as has Nikon Rumors who has received a lot more :)

The D3s Specs (NR)

  • Better ISO-performance (ISO 200-12800 probably)
  • New 1.2 crop mode
  • Bigger buffer
  • Motion-Jpeg 720p (no 1080p!)
  • Improved AF-ON button
  • Improved multi-dial
  • No 14 fps, I repeat no 14 fps

The CR3 Specs I received (NR has all the juice):

  • Nikon D3s
  • Oct 14/15th
  • 12 mp
  • ISO 102,400

At the moment no new lenses will be launched with the D3s according to Nikon Rumors.

Nikon is really upping the spec game if these rumors are true (outside of the 1080p omission).

It’s Nikon Night!

Joy!
Are you waiting for the launch of the D3000 and D300s? I am! New 70-200 possibly too.

Maybe Nikon will update the worst line of P&S cameras on earth. Canon needs to be pushed a bit more in the segment.

A new 70-200 and 18-200 as well.

Nothing to change systems over. :)

Nikon D5000?

If the specs are tr.ue
If the specs for the D5000 are true, Canon appears to be getting their proverbial butt kicked from a perception standpoint.

  • Bali-angle LCD, 2.7 inch?
  • D movie image editing and enhanced scene mode
  • Silent Mode AF
  • 11-point target tracking AF
  • ISO3200high sensitivity support

I’m not a spec person, but for an entry level camera.. specs can lead to sales. Consumers love specs!
