I was blessed with a go on the Nikon 3ds last night, and i was blown away with quality, i checked the ISO ranges out and it really is superb.

I then used the video function, and i can assure you, that i beats any hd prosumer camera out there by miles....i was blown away...amazed...its really re-assuring when you use it and, you feel like james Cameron after a few minutes...great stuff...

Now i just have to find 4k to buy one...lol

seriously though, that camera is a monster, and it just oozes performance and build quality.

10/10 for me but would of given it 1000/1000 if those ratings applied..

Nikon have a very sacred secret, an area 51 of the camera world, what they are making shows..

I've got a D3 and the quality of the images at high ISO's really do just blow you away.

What precisely is the difference between 10/10 and 1000/1000? They're both 100%.

It's the amount of noughts, it means good things to some people. Kinda like the most numbers of pixels they can cram in on a tiny sensor. :rolleyes:

haha, yes ive just noticed, thats like a super backwards way of saying the same thing, but i guess thats the effect the D3s had on me, i was still in my cold turkey stage from using it. :D

twelfty three....twelfty three....never mind :rolleyes:

Gave me a chuckle anyway, Shaun.:D

Must say I love the video quality you can get from current DSLRs - 5D II in my case, but whatever the camera, it opens up a whole new world.:cool:

Yeah i was torn with the gh1 or my pentax...i went pentax..but to be honest its mickey mouse in comparison to the d3s/5d/7d/gh1...mind you..its still usable..its way better then buying both hd cam and slr, and its better then my panasonic hdc hs 100 and that was 800 on its own...lol. ;)

I'll second the comments about high ISO performance. I had the privilege of taking it out for a few evenings while it was in for testing and it's phenomenal. Such a treat to feel comfortable shooting at ISO 12,800. And handheld where you would normally use a tripod.
