Nikon Announces D4

January 6th, 2012

MELVILLE, N.Y. (Jan 5, 2012) – The new Nikon D4 digital SLR builds upon the legacy of the proven Nikon flagship D-SLRs before it, engineered to give today’s professional multimedia photographers a new apex of speed and accuracy with unparalleled image quality, low-light capability and Full HD video. The Nikon D4 hosts a multitude of advanced new features and useful functions that deliver speedy performance and amazing image quality for when missing the shot is not an option.

Every aspect of the new Nikon D4 D-SLR has been designed to emphasize rapid response and seamless operation to help professional photographers consistently capture incredible content. Nikon’s proven 51-point AF System has been further enhanced for maximum speed in a variety of challenging shooting situations, even at 10 frames per second (fps). Considered the new Nikon flagship, the D4 renders supreme image quality, a feat accomplished with a new 16.2-megapixel FX-format CMOS sensor, coupled with the latest generation of Nikon’s EXPEED 3 image processing engine to help produce images and videos with stunning clarity and color. Photographers are also able to shoot in even the most challenging environments and lighting conditions with the assistance of Nikon’s new 91,000-pixel 3D color matrix meter and a broad ISO range from 100 to a staggering 204,800 for low-light capture like never before. The Nikon D4 is engineered for the modern professional and incorporates never before seen HD-SLR video features for those who also need to capture multimedia content from the field.

“Speed without accuracy is irrelevant,” said Bo Kajiwara, director of marketing, Nikon Inc. “The status of a Nikon flagship camera is not given lightly; this next generation of Nikon’s most professional body exceeds the needs of a wide variety of both still and multimedia professionals that rely on Nikon to make their living. Besides overall performance and burst speed, the D4 provides Nikon’s most advanced AF system to date, as well as enhanced workflow speed to give professionals the edge in the field.”

  • *Drool* ….. I wonder when the D400 is going to be announced, that’s the one I have been waiting for. Nikon has a tendency to launch cameras at sporadic intervals, sometimes with painfully long waiting times.

  • @ Daniel It will be the D800 (36MP) and it will be announced at the end of April, ready for shipping middle of June 2012. Check our Nikon Rumors

  • I want one of these so bad I can taste it! Might be time to put my D700 & D60 bodies on ebay!

  • Very nice for you Nikon shooters. I still like our Canon, but its great to see that you guys finally have something that can claim bragging rights.

  • D400 won’t be announced before the D800 so we will have to wait at least until about August for it. These cameras will have advanced video capabilities, it will be interesting to see what people can do with them. Also this new D4 brought a new memory card format, a SD size card with CF card performance. 2012 is a great year for dslr’s. It wasn’t supposed to be that way, they were all delayed from 2011 due to thailand floods. Can’t wait for a D400.

  • I am a canon guy but what I really like about this camera is that it has built in iPad tethering controls. This means that you can hook up your iPad ( and iPhone ) and completely control the camera with live view. No app needed. This is great for those of us who shoot ground based aerial shots. Nikon got it right with this one. Now I am waiting for canon to catch up.

  • James- Here, here!
