The alpha geeks over at Wired Magazine's GadgetLab needed to test out Nikon's flagship camera, the 12 megapixel D3. It's a camera designed for action photographers and photojournalists, such as photographers covering war zones.

With no war handy to create hellish lighting and blazing fact action conditions to put the D3 through it's paces, the Wired guys picked the next best thing: roller derby.

They took the Nikon D3 out to a B.ay A.rea D.erby Girls bout and got some sweet shots. Check out the video for the pics.

My favorite part:

"What do the girls look like?"

"They look like they could beat most of us up."
