Thanks to Nikon trainer Mike Hagen of Out There Images for uploading this clip demonstrating the D3's amazing frame rate capabilities. It's made from a series of 168 photographs taken in Continuous High (CH) at 11 frames per second (fps). The D3 will take 130 frames in a row until it stops and then you have to let your finger up and press down on the shutter release
to take another 130 photos. The total duration of the sequences is approximately 15 seconds long.
