In the forefront featuring adaptable FX-format multimedia flexibility while engineered for arduous professional application as fast as 9 fps. The D3S' durable magnesium alloy construction has expansive sealing in opposition to dust and moisture, and it delivers on its guarantee of excellence. Fastidious moments of time are acquired to an enlarged buffer, providing constant acquisition of up to36 14-bit NEF images in (RAW) or as many as 82 (fine) JPEGs.

The D3s features a 51-area autofocus scheme, Nikons recently contrived, original 12.1-MP CMOS image sensor, in conjunction with exclusive technologies like the EXPEED image processor, the Nikon Scene Recognition Scheme combined with a fast, precise 51-area autofocus system, work in harmony to ascertain that both still images plus smooth 24 frames per second HD movie files display extraordinary corner-to-corner sharpness, rich color penetration and wide-ranging tonal range, while ground-breaking execution allows low-noise ISO sensitivities up to 12,800.

Things not to like: Back button to select an autofocus point. The Canon's method is more appealing. The life of the battery is nowhere close to the 4000 shots advertised. Video mode focusing could use improvement. Its jerky and slow. Talking about video -- uh...good in a pinch, however its not a big deal for me. however others may feel differently. Canon has the video edge for now.
