KHAAAAAAAAN!!!!… oh, sorry, wrong movie. Nice 5cm macro mode though.


The fast AF system and fast maximum aperture even at extreme telephoto allow you to zoom in close on distant moving subjects. There aren’t many non-SLR cameras that could have taken this shot.


…or this one either. 1/400th at f/3.5, and a focal length equivalent to over 400mm.


Full control over aperture and excellent low-light focusing make the S3 a great camera for creative photography.
