Introducing the Nikon D3s Pro
Press Release: 01/08/2010
Southern Photo Technical Service, a Nikon Authorized
Service Center owned and operated by master technician Isaac Hadid, has created
a modified Nikon D3s that is proudly referred to as the “Pro”.
This Nikon D3s “Pro” is a beefed up Nikon, ready to
handle harsher environments and reduce general maintenance with enhanced weather
proofing seals, additional dust traps installed in critical areas and what Isaac
calls a shutter enhancement that will increase shutter life to an estimated
500,000 frames. If needed, the auto focus is tweaked to optimum precision and
the best part is, Southern Photo will warranty the shutter life as well. Lastly,
the camera is “branded” with the word “Pro” by laser engraving for the
vanity in all of us die hard Nikonians.
This project was the brainstorm of Jim Winters, one of Southern Photos valued customers. Jim asked Isaac to beef up
his prized new Nikon D3s and make it a “one of a kind camera” that every
Nikon professional would dream to own.
Isaac is well known as one of the most knowledgeable and
experienced camera technicians in the U.S. and has served as a factory-trained
technician for more than 10 major camera manufacturers over the last 27 years.
Isaac used his vast experience to develop several modifications that would
greatly reduce general camera maintenance by reducing overall wear and tear to
increase reliability and product value.
Within hours of showing the camera to a few of Jim’s
friends, phone orders for a D3s Pro started pouring in from other South Florida
photographers that use Southern Photo for all their photographic service and
What does it cost to modify your prized Nikon D3s and turn it into a “Pro”?? A straight up $500.00 or what Isaac says is about 10% of the retail cost of a New D3s.
What do you get??
