Make way for the new Nikon D4 digital SLR camera. This baby boasts an FX-format 16.2-megapixel CMOS Sensor for superior image quality. Its large 3.2" ultra-sharp 921,000-dot LCD monitor features automatic brightness control, adjusting visibility based on the environment to ensure bright, clear playback, menu browsing and Live View shooting.
The LCD gives you the power to enlarge images up to 46X for focus confirmation. EXPEED 3 optimized for still image and HD video capture ensures high color fidelity, fine tones and a high, expandable dynamic range. A quicker, more responsive 51-point autofocus system captures subjects in your choice of two ways: With the points working like a net to capture subjects in motion or concentrating on achieving pinpoint accuracy.
For challenging conditions and situations, the Nikon D4 allows you to drop from the standard ISO 100 down to ISO 50 equivalent, or conversely, increase sensitivity up to ISO 204800 equivalent. Wow. Shoot with confidence under virtually all lighting conditions. Enjoy full 1080p HD broadcast quality video at 30 or 24 fps in H.264/MPEG-4 AVC HD format, and record clips up to 29 minutes 59 seconds long. You can also see simultaneous Live View output on external monitors and record uncompressed video courtesy of the HDMI terminal.
Not one, but two Live View shooting modes are at your fingertips: Photography Live View and Movie Live View. Easily confirm exposure, white balance, monitor hue, histogram, focus mode, AF area mode and focusing accuracy. Nikon has separated flash compensation and exposure compensation in this camera to give you greater creative control.
You’re also sure to appreciate the dedicated Nikon Picture Control Button offering six preset options: Standard, Neutral, Vivid, Monochrome, Landscape and Portrait for still images and video. You also get nine customizable settings offering sophisticated and personalized color control. Time-lapse shooting enables you to capture a broad scope of subjects at blazing-fast speed. Face detection via the optical viewfinder and detailed scene analysis with the 91K-pixel RGB sensor allow for superb auto exposure, auto white balance detection, AF performance and i-TTL flash exposure.
The D4 sports an extremely durable magnesium alloy body with weather sealing, so you can confidently expect peak performance even in harsh environments. The camera’s shutter has been put to the test and has proven to be good for 400,000 cycles at extreme continuous burst rates over extended periods of time—so you need not worry about that, either.
The Nikon D4 is compatible with the WT-5A wireless transmitter: Transmit images to an FTP server or computer via Image transmission mode. In PC mode, operate the D4 with Camera Control Pro 2. There’s also an HTTP mode, enabling you to use a Web browser on your computer or smart phone, display thumbnails of images stored in the camera’s memory cards, or create slide shows, view images, manipulate simple camera controls for remote shooting, or even start live view shooting, including video recording.
A true power saver, the D4 runs on the new, compact and high-capacity EN-EL18 rechargeable Li-ion battery. You can count on extended battery life and the ability to capture roughly 2,600 images on a single charge. Convinced yet? We look forward to getting our hands on a new D4 soon.
