Due to this large ISO range, quality of both video and picture is awesome under different conditions. It is a DSLR designed, heavy duty large camera with weight of 1.24 Kg, but is perfectly balanced when used with aperture lenses of right specifications.

D3S is 12.1 Mega pixels camera with 14-bit A/D conversion and 36 x 24 mm FX CMOS frame sensor. It has many exclusive features like boost option up to ISO 25600 and high sensitivity.

Output file formats are JPG, TIFF or NEF for still images and AVI for video.

There exist various picture controls like neutral colors and active D-Lighting in the camera that can adjust metering and be used to apply Lighting curve.
