The British Journal of Photography has posted impressions of the Nikon D3s a few hours before the camera's expected debut, and the initial report suggests that Nikon is still lagging behind when it comes to video.

The author only mentions video recording at 720p/24 fps, no talk of 1080p at all. What's worse is that the article pegs the D3s, body only, at £4,200. For comparison, since we only have British pricing for the moment, the 1080p-capable Canon 5D Mk II retails for £2,300.


The D3s supposedly features amazing high ISO abilities, but the lack of 1080p video recording would still be a huge bummer. Hopefully, either the BJP left out some crucial details, or Nikon has some surprises in store for us. [British Journal of Photography via Nikon Rumors]
