Okay, I have never used neither of these two cameras so I can't complain.  What i do know is that the D3s has the older 12MP so it must have the same output look as the D700/D300. Does anyone have side by side skin tones comparisons?   Is there a really big difference? I really really like the body of the updated D4.  The grip is a little deeper and a bit nicer to hold, oh, and the AF joysticks, I just loved that so much. I know lot's and lot's of us like the output look of the older models...

I have started to do more events and weddings recently and will continue to do so. The largest prints I will be making are mainly 15 X 11.5". I just did a wedding a few weeks ago with my 16MP fuji gear and the prints came out simply beautiful. Even several years ago I did my sister's wedding with the nikon D200 and the pictures came out pretty darn decent on print. The funny thing is that on my monitor they don't look very good, but on print they looked very nice. Not as good as the fuji...

Help! My Nikon D3S is focusing on the background...you can see in this picture, that it is focusing on the background to the right behind the family. The family is all fuzzy, but the background is clear. What is happening? Is it a lens thing or a camera thing? I used a Tamron 16-28 on this image. But when I changed my lens to a 50mm during the reception, it focused fine. What is going on and can I fix this in PHotoshop?

Anybody try a Nikon D3s & bowen/calumet 750r Travelites with pocketwizard hypersync feature? I dare not go out and buy MiniTT1 or FlexTT5 unit without having an idea what results I'd be getting if any with my existing lights. I've seen stuff on the pocketwizard website, but the tests were made with paul c buff lights, nothing with bowen. Just hoping someone has had experience with the monolights I've got. Thanks. --There's not 2 but 3 sides to every story. Theirs, yours, and what really...

I just acquired a used D3S for cheap and am curious about how fast it writes to its CF cards.  I will probably be buying some new CFs for it and don't want to waste money on cards that are more capable (and expensive) then they need to be.  Simply said, at what data rate (write speed) does the card delay the camera in emptying its buffer? --TomNikon D3S, D810, D750, Nikon 1 V3, J5Sony a6000IR, a6300, a5100Oly E-P2IRand Lots-O-Lenses

I'm thinking about getting a used D3S (or D4/S) for action shots. I have a D750 that I'll keep for everything else. I love the D750 but I'd prefer a higher frame rate so I can get more shots in a sequence. I'm also wondering how the autofocus compares? I'm assuming the D3S will be better but I could be wrong as the D750 is very good (and I know that a lot of it is down to the user!). I'm veering towards the D3S as from what I've read it sounds like the D4/S are not a significant enough...

Hey guys Just a quick question, on my road to tack sharp pictures (I am almost nailing it now!) I have my D3s set to +7 on sharpness, but to get tack sharp at 100% crop I still have to add +1 sharpness in ViewNX. If I add another +1 on the D3s I STILL have to add +1 on ViewNX Any ideas how the D3s picture control sharpness compares with the viewnx one? Is +1 on the D3s only a fraction of the +1 on ViewNx? I would like to get tack sharp right from the camera (I know +7 already seems high,...
