About the Nikon D4

The Nikon D4 DSLR is equipped with a new Nikon FX-format CMOS image sensor (imaging size of 36.0 x 23.9 mm) and EXPEED 3, the latest image-processing engine specifically optimized for digital-SLR cameras, making it the next-generation flagship Nikon digital-SLR camera with the ultimate in versatility and functionality that offers superior image quality rich in detail along with excellent high-speed performance. It has an effective pixel count of 16.2-million pixels and offers superior image quality under a broad range of lighting conditions with its image sensor supporting an incredible range of sensitivities from ISO 50 to ISO 204800.

The new 91K-pixel (approximately 91,000 pixels) RGB sensor supports the Advanced Scene Recognition System, which is able to recognize human faces even when images are framed using the optical viewfinder. In addition, the Advanced Scene Recognition System offers significant improvements in AF, AE, i-TTL flash control and auto white balance (AWB) control accuracy.

The 51 focus point AF system has been improved with faster initiation of autofocusing and the ability to detect and focus on subjects with less lighting. In addition, 11 focus points are fully functional when lenses with a maximum aperture of f/8 are used. All of this means more precise autofocusing when super-telephoto NIKKOR lenses are used with teleconverters (2.0x). The Multi-area Mode Full HD D-movie movie recording function is capable of recording full-HD movies at 30 fps and offers three movie recording formats for selection according to recording conditions or creative intent.

In addition to built-in wired LAN features, the D4 also supports high-speed image transfer via wireless LAN when the new, compact, easy-to-use Wireless Transmitter WT-5 (available separately) is connected to the camera. The D4 is also equipped with a number of new functions that support a more efficient workflow for professional photographers, including one that allows users to add IPTC (International Press Telecommunications Council) information to images.

Nikon D4 Features

  • 16.2 megapixels in a newly designed FX-format image sensor: The D4 is engineered to achieve image integrity in the most diverse and difficult lighting conditions, thanks to an optimized balance between the FX-format sensor size (36.0 x 23.9 mm) and 16.2 effective megapixels
  • Super-charged EXPEED 3 image-processing engine: EXPEED 3 performs multiple tasks at blindingly fast speeds, a result of engineering expertise and meticulous attention to detail
  • Reliable ISO 12800 performance as standard: The D4 provides low-noise performance at ISO 12800 and extends the range one EV further, compared with that of the D3S, making ISO 100 standard; a welcome addition when using slow shutter speeds in bright sunlight
  • Faster to winning frames: The frame rate can also be boosted to up to 11 fps in FX format. The camera's large buffer memory allows shooting up to approx. 100 frames in RAW and up to 200 frames in JPEG (when using SONY XQD Memory Card H series QD-H32 with 32GB capacity).
  • Faster total workflow speed: The D4's speed runs across its entire workflow. The camera is ready to shoot in approx. 0.12 s and release time lag is minimized to a mere approx. 0.042 s.
  • A new level of accuracy in auto operation with 91K-pixel RGB sensor: With Nikon's original Advanced Scene Recognition System, the D4 achieves new standards of accurate autofocus, auto exposure, i-TTL flash, Active D-Lighting and auto white balance results
  • Face detection: The camera's auto-area AF mode accurately recognizes human faces and achieves sharp focus immediately and automatically - useful when there's no time to manually choose focus point. It focuses on a subject's body when the face is out of the AF area
  • Advanced Multi-CAM 3500FX AF sensor module: The Advanced Multi-CAM 3500FX autofocus sensor module utilizes 51 strategically placed AF points that are designed to capture your subject as chosen. All 51 AF points of the D4 are usable with every AF NIKKOR lens of f/5.6 or faster.
  • Fast initial AF detection speed: Its faster initial AF detection captures decisive moments like never before, which is advantageous when there is not enough time to press the shutter-release button halfway to focus, or if the subject moves fast or appears unexpectedly.
  • 15 cross-type sensors in the central area and 11 focus points compatible with f/8: The D4 aligns its 15 cross-type sensors in the central viewfinder area to detect contrast in both vertical and horizontal lines for better AF performance
  • AF modes and AF-area modes: The 3D-tracking mode locks onto moving subjects, moving the AF point and allowing the photographer to concentrate on composition
  • Multi-area mode Full HD D-Movie with three image area options: The D4 can record 1080p Full HD video at 30/25 or 24p in H.264/MPEG-4 AVC format with broadcast quality full of fine tones and natural colors
  • Excellent audio control: The D4 is designed for crisp stereo recording with a built-in external stereo microphone connector. Attach the compact Stereo Microphone ME-1 to record clear sound while significantly reducing mechanical noise
  • Improved operation in every situation: The D4 is designed to make operation in both horizontal and vertical orientations as intuitive as possible. Each orientation has identically laid-out controls, consisting of a main command dial, a sub-command dial, an AF-ON button and a multi selector
  • Durability in severe environmental conditions: The D4's body is comprised of strong-yet-lightweight magnesium alloy. This assures the camera's superb reliability even in the most demanding environmental conditions
  • Optical viewfinder with grid line option: The D4 offers approx. 100% frame coverage for FX format, with a viewfinder that is designed to minimize visual fatigue over long periods of use. The approx. 0.7x magnification enhances the confirmation of every visual element in the frame
  • High-speed dual card slots: Fast and reliable card reading and recording are crucial to a smooth and productive workflow. The D4 is equipped with two card slots, one for a CF card compatible with UDMA 7 and another for the XQD memory card, the next-generation recording media
  • Wired and wireless communication system: The D4 employs a built-in wired LAN function of IEEE802.3u standard (100BASE-TX). Moreover, the D4 is compatible with the compact, easy-to-connect, newly developed WT-5A/B/C/D (optional) that realizes high-speed wireless transmission.
  • NIKKOR lenses: To bring out the full potential of the D4, look no further than the vast array of NIKKOR lenses designed and tested to match the D4's resolution and image integrity with sharpness, accuracy and field-proven reliability.
