Poorly Photoshopped Nikon D3s

Consistent with the previous rumors that a Nikon D3 replacement, the Nikon D3s, is coming in October, Nikon Rumors is calling the D3s a sure thing for roughly October 15, 2009.

The rumored spec list continues to call for 14 frames per second and 1080p video capture.  Additional rumored specs surfacing from Nikon Rumors today include a sensitivity range of ISO 200-12800 (expandable up to ISO 102,400 equivalent) on a tweaked 12.1 mp FX sensor.

S always means speed in Nikon language. But please. Not the old 12.1 Megapixel

Full-HD is nice – of course not for a Pro. But for a private fotographer it is a desirable trend although I am aware of the fact that a slr cannot fully compete with a camcorder and vicen versa…
But if you want to combine both media e.g. for creation of a HDAV-show, then you have always to carry an slr and a camcorder with you: additional weight (also for flights), additional costs and it happens very often that you miss either a good shot or a good take because you just handle the “wrong” device.

In that sense, I know that such hybrid solutions will never be perfect but I do not care about traditional mindsets because they do not represent a new target group of consumers who are open to combine dynamic and static pictures.
