Nikon has announced the D3s, the successor to last year's D3, and it comes wading in to the market bragging some pretty impressive specs.With a redesi

With a redesigned 12.1 megapixel sensor, the pro-level D3s has an impressive ISO range of 200 - 12,800, but with three boost levels to take it up to a whopping ISO 102,400 should you so desire.

There's 720p HD video capture at 24 frames per second, and autofocus that has been fine tuned to support both video capture and Live View as well.

Nice finishing touches include three different crop modes, a quiet shutter release mode for when you need to keep the noise down, RAW processing options in the retouch menu and four manual control levels alongside the new Auto setting.

The D3s will be hitting shelves in the UK in late November, with a price tag of around £4,200. Ouch.
