Did I Miss Something?

Did I miss something? I looked at some other web sites / blogs and nobody is saying squat about Nikon’s newest wonder, the D3s. Now either they aren’t reading their email or they are more taken with Adobe’s Photoshop app for the iPhone (which has gotten a lot of airtime). This new camera has HD and everything!

I guess I just don’t get it.

    Nice upgrade but only 720p for the video? Canon is 1080p. Not that everything needs to be 1080p but I think it would have given the video capability more credibility.

    I wonder if they (Nikon) just can’t get the resolution out of the FX sensor to make a good 1080p image. On the other hand, if they release a D3Xs, that might have 1080p capability.

    Still, if I wanted to shoot video I’d get a video camera to do it. The rig that Vincent Laforet and his team have build around a Canon 5D Mark II is huge. Money wise, I’d have to think he’s spent enough money to buy a a high quality video camera.

    Of course I might be a dinosaur too. I’m going on a photo shoot this afternoon with a friend up to Arcosanti and I’m taking two cameras: my D300 and my F3HP.
