Nikon have just launched the long awaited D3S professional FX camera. As the D3, it is equipped with Nikon's 12.1 effective Mp. CMOS sensor, but with an extended standard ISO range of 12.800 and an ISO-max of 102.400.
It is fairly common to see people desperately searching the Web, because their version of Photoshop, Lightroom or Elements refuses to open the RAW files of their new camera, mostly generating either a "File not supported" or a far more scary "This file may be corrupted" message.The same may happen in Nikon Capture, and in both cases you need to update the ACR plugin or even upgrade your software.
Today, Nikon launched their long awaited D3000 entry level and D300s semi professional cameras. I resume the specs of both cameras, as taken from their respective US product brochures.
My Nikon wishlist: D700+MB-D10, AF-S 14-24 mm f/2.8G, AF-S 55-200 mm. f/4-5.6G and Sandisk Ducati 4 Gb. CF plus firewire card reader.
Maybe the best Nikon ever built? Some will surely disagree, but with over 14.000 takes on it, and considering its price, I think yes! Updated: 29-04-09.
My Nikon cameras, past, present and future. Some facts and some speculation.
Review of the ASP 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3D IF DC Sigma: You can’t have at All.Strengths, weaknesses, competition and pro reviews. In spite of its optical flaws, still quite respectable for an extreme zoom at this price point.
