No one is immune from the genetic disorder known as “butter fingers”, including photographers who have expensive DSLR’s.
Nikon advertises their D3s camera as being a durable product and French website, pixelistes, took it upon themselves to see just how durable the Nikon D3s is. The camera endured being rinsed off under a tap, taking a bath, being thrown from a car, taking a swim in a muddy swamp, being frozen in a block of ice and being set on fire!
Surprisingly, the Nikon D3s survived the multiple traumas. With a price tag of $6,799, you’d hope the D3s would be able to take a beating from any clumsy photographer, so it’s good that it can.
Despite this test not being executed by Nikon, it’s amazing publicity for the company. I wonder, if secretly, pixelistes and Nikon worked together on creating this advertising gold. Let the conspiracy theories begin!
