      The D3S is my workhorse. the ultimate shooting gun!

      For the works where I do not control anything in a situation but
      absolutely must come back with pictures taken without flash and
      handheld, this is my workhorse.

      Just cook up the worst nightmarish shooting situation and you will
      see the D3S get busy. When everybody else go back in the bag, the
      D3S is the only one to be seen on the battlefield.

      It will take pictures where your eyes can't see, at a rhythm that no
      other machine will support or endure, and works all the time.

      Every time! Any time!

      The EXTREME MACHINE! Press work, sports and events, or concerts
      photography… you name it.

      When the going gets tough, the toughs get going…
