Nikon D3 sample shots

After 2 months of waiting, the Nikon D3 is finally available in the Philippines. I just got my brand new Nikon D3 with the 14 to 24mm f2.8 Nano coated lens from Columbia last Monday and still waiting for my 24 to 70mm f2.8 Nano coated lens. However, there were only 2 units available from Columbia Digital Sales and luckily, I got one of them. Most of my cameras are from Columbia because of it's local warranty. I was so excited to use it and do some tests. At first I was hesitant to buy it because it is quite heavy compared to my D300. I was blown away when I saw the test shots. The focus was so fast that you won't even notice that it is focusing. The metering is so accurate. The noise is so low at ISO 6400. I even tested it at ISO 12,400 and was amazed with the results. I can even freeze the subject using a high-speed shutter without any flash. The sharpness is so much better than my D300. Guys, this is by far the best camera I have ever used - even my 10 year old daughter likes it because of the capability to shoot at 11 frames per second. Here are some sample shots from my wedding coverage in Tagaytay last Tuesday and during our christmas party in Davao last Wednesday. Notice the action shots taken during the party. Hope you'll like it! :)

(Note: All these shots were taken in available light, even in a low-light situation.)

wow! these shots are nice. Ive recently acquired a Nikon D3 as well. but i think its too much for me since im just an amateur photographer. Pero when I took some shots when we went to Amapulo, wow, I felt like a professional already.. ehehe. its really great to have a D3 =)

By the way, I've been a Lito Sy fan since you shot my Sister's wedding. you're really my photography idol.

keep up the great work!!!
