This camera won the award for being the best in the D-SLR Professional category at the 2010 TIPA awards. With a 12MP camera and 720p HD recording feature there is no doubt about it that photos and recordings should be of an excellent standard. The Nikon 3DS can take up to 4300 images from just one charge of its battery, so it’s favoured by professional photographers who work outdoors and for those who are far from a power source.
