This collection of Nikon professional cameras is aimed at the commercial photographer who demands only the highest possible image quality from their camera. In short, they're the best that money can buy. Which one is the best out of all of the Nikon DSLR cameras on this list? Read on to find out.
The D700 is the cheapest of all the Nikon professional cameras, but that doesn't necessarily make it affordable. If you bought one today you would need around $2500 to add this camera body to your collection, but what a collection it would be! It has weather sealing, and the same full frame, 12 megapixel image sensor that is found on the D3 and D3s. The D700 can be used up to ISO 6400, but extended further to ISO 25,600. It can shoot at 5 frames per second, and even that can be boosted to 8 frames per second with the addition of the optional MB-D10 battery grip. So, with a few exceptions, the D700 is pretty much a D3 in a smaller, lighter body. It may not be the best professional digital SLR that money can buy, but it has a quality that is hard to match.
The multi-award winning D3s is Nikon's latest, and arguably best professional DSLR camera to date. Released in October 2009, the D3s is an updated version of the D3. It uses essentially the same 12 megapixel sensor from the Nikon D3, but ISO sensitivity has been extended to an unprecedented 102,400, and noise levels are remarkably low. Shooting speed remains constant at 9 frames per second, but a new sensor cleaning system has been introduced, and the D3s now has the same quiet shutter operation as . Currently, it is also the only full frame Nikon DSLR to shoot HD video. When you throw in a new Expeed processing engine, the final tally means you will have no change from $5,000. However, you will have one the greatest Nikon professional cameras ever made.
