Nikon D3s

Hi there I am asking anyone who owns and is using the D3s if they have any issues with the video stuttering? I have issues with this and although I am using Scandisk Extreme Pro CF cards they are still there. So I would like to see any footage of say more than 20 seconds that has no stutter to to show me that its not a real problem and it's just my camera. I have seen official Nikon footage and that also seems to have stutter which is incredible seeing as it shouldn't have anything at all like that.

Lower your shutter speed to 1/50 sec, let me know if that fixes it. I have no problem with my D3s.

Thanks for that I will give it a go and see if that cures the issue.

Unfortunately that doesn't cure the issue, I have just had a London company look at the files and they are in agreement that there is a data rate issue with the card or the camera which means either the 4 cards I have ( Extreme Pro Scandisk) are either at fault or that the camera is at fault. I have yet to see any footage from a D3s that doesn't have this issue so again if anyone has some footage that doesn't stutter I would lobe to see it.

Use UDMA rated cards

Hi there Scandisk Extreme pro are UDMA and it's the cards that Nikon use for development. If you have a look here at this link you will see the issue.

Lee,

Am wondering if you ever resolved or clarified the D3s stutter issue (which my dept is just now encountering).

Thanks for any info you can provide.

Hi

yes there were two issues, one was the card used as you do need the fasted card you can get and I use 90/mb sec Lexar pro, anything slower and the card cannot keep up. The second (and this was the major issue) was the firmware update, this sorted it out totally and not had an issue since. This update was the first update after the release of the camera and not sure what that was, but if you navigate to the Nikon website and make sure you download the latest one this will be fine.

I hope this helps as it bugged the hell out of me.
