    Gorgeous shot...looks like it could be a landscape from another planet. I'm hoping to get one of these myself when they become more readily available.

    Another winner Uwe. I particularly like the restraint you've shown with saturation. The soft muted colors are well suited to the subject matter. Really nice work.

    I can’t remeber any numbers off the top of my head and I couldn’t find a limit listed in the D3S specs. But other VSLR video clip limits are in the neightborhood of 5 minutes. That may seem short. But unless you’ve got your camera set up on a tripod to shoot a dance recital, it’s not really a big problem. Most video clips end up being a lot shorter than you’d expect. I haven’t shot a ton of video. But in all the box opening and other videos I have done, I’ve yet to hit the clip time limit with a digital SLR.

    I is an issue if you record interviews or longer events. Not real issues for movies. Canon has 12 minutes and GH1 is even longer.

    Thanks. Hard to find the balance on saturation in these scenes.

    Not exactly high art but a fun 16mm fisheye 1/30s f/14 @ 12800 ISO straight from Capture One @ defaults

    Re: Nikon D3s fun

    A grab shot with my D3s & 28/1.4.

    What I found interesting was the colour rendering of the D3s is very much like that of the D3x in character based on what I've been seeing.

    Re: Nikon D3s fun

    I posted this D3x shot over in the main picture forum with it's wild sky - almost unreal in fact.

    However, I shot this with the D3s and although somewhat noisy given ISO12800 and almost darkness I think it shows what the D3s can do for you

    Just saw this image on my home machine. Nasty.
    Note to self: Don't post images with shadow details and bad editing from your un-calibrated laptop on the road!!

    Re: Nikon D3s fun

    Hi Everyone,

    I saw the D3S thread and thought I'd drop in and say hello from Colorado. Here's one from the other day. My son and I were returning from a great hiking trip to Arches NP where we spent more time sleeping in and having grand slam breakfasts at the Moab Denny's than out on the trail for sunrise. Hence the photos from the trip weren't that great. That wasn't the objective of this trip, though. The objective was to spend some one-on-one time with my 12-year old as he begins the journey into manhood and I loved it.

    Still, I found myself pining for the golden hours somewhat. Proud of myself for showing remarkable restraint all weekend, we were about 20 miles from home and I saw this thunderhead building over my shoulder to the SE. A few attempts at framing failed to show the size of this thing... it just wasn't as impressive when you could see it all in the viewfinder. So I pushed in a bit more to 200 and there it was.

    Absolutely love everything about the D3S. Without question the best digital I've shot. It's the first one that's made me think twice about my beloved F6, which I still shoot quite a bit of film with.

    Just wanted to say hello.

    Yes, except the weight, size and price :-).
