PostSubject: 14 Oct 09 Nikon D3s officially unveiled   Thu Oct 29, 2009 10:46 am

So, all the momentum has built up to this very moment. Coming in a little earlier than we expected (though it is well into the 14th of October for quite a few parts of the world by now), the Nikon D3s high speed DSLR has officially been announced, with the specs almost exactly has rumours predicted.

It features a 12.1 MP sensor, with 9fps at FX and 11fps at DX crop mode burst frame rate. ISO range is from 200 to 12,800, but can also be boosted to an incredible 102, 400 ISO. 720p at 24 frames HD movie with some special fixing to prevent rolling shutter.

Price will be at around $5,199.95 USD (RRP), and it should be available sometime in November.
