Nikon D3s officially unveiled

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 joins the D3x and possibly the D3, although the D3 has been discontinued.

It features a 12.1 MP sensor, with a whopping (but expected) 14fps 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.

Update: contrary to what we previously had said, the D3s offers only 9fps at FX mode.

Nikon D3 could be discontinued

It’s a strong possibility now that the Nikon D3 has been discontinued. That is, they are no longer producing it.

It still lists on Nikon websites, but according to CameraTalk, it has been continued. We assume that’s just to cover until the D3s is announced — just like Nikon has just announced discontinuation of the D300, after letting the stock dwindle following the release of the D300s.

Further signs of discontinuation is that Ritz no longer stocks the D3, and major stores have back orders on D3’s.

Edit: title changed to ‘could be’ as this is not confirmed. We apologise for not having those two words previously.
