CONS
  • Price: The Nikon D3S is a professional-grade camera and is priced accordingly, which may make it unaffordable for some users.
  • Large and Heavy: The camera is large and heavy, which may make it difficult to carry around for extended periods of time.
  • Video: The Nikon D3S does not shoot video, which may be a limitation for some users who want a camera that can do both.
  • Limited Megapixels: The camera's 12.1-megapixel sensor may be a limitation for some users who require higher resolution images.
  • Limited LCD Screen: The camera's 3-inch LCD screen is fixed and not touch-enabled, which may not be as convenient as other cameras with more advanced screens.
