Nikon’s latest DSLR, the Nikon D4, has arrived as promised, having its release officially announced by Nikon several days ago. Though shown off to the public in this year’s CES at Les Vegas, the D4 won’t be out in the market till next month.
So just how awesome is the Nikon D4?
Without even looking at its specs and reading up on (or watching) the hands-on reviews, you can definitely expect this camera to have all the features you can possibly want and more. After all, that’s the least you can expect with it replacing the D3S.
The Nikon D4 sports new technology and new features like the Nikon FX-format CMOS sensor (36.0 x 23.9 mm) with 16.2 effective megapixels, an ISO range of 100 to 12800 at normal setting (expandable to ISO 50 equivalent or ISO 204800 equivalent), and Advanced Scene Recognition System that significantly improves face detection and performance of 3D-tracking, and the ability to record 1,920 x 1,080/30p Full HD and HD movies in three formats (FX-, DX-based and 1,920 x 1,080 crop movie format). It also makes use of an improved version of the high-speed, multifunctional, high-performance image-processing engine EXPEED 3, which makes for instantaneous shutter speed and really fast auto-focus. You can say that any shot you miss can’t be blamed on this camera, but on your slow reflexes.
When it comes to camera operation. Those who have been using a D3S will feel right at home, although it is a tad bit bulkier and heavier.
All-in-all, it has been getting rave reviews, which is to be expected.
If you want to upgrade to the Nikon D4 this February though, you will need to shell out a whopping £4799.99.
