Nikon announces $6000 tagged D4 DSLR

Two years ago, Nikon announced the D3s, which was to be their camera and light. Point the camera reference for low light performance and competition is hard to catch up to him. Today Nikon is back with its new flagship DSLR, Nikon D4, which improves the already excellent performance of low light D3s and this time makes it even faster.

Speed ​​is one of the highlights of the D4, which has a startup time of just 0.012 seconds. D4 is also powerful enough to capture full-resolution JPEG or RAW at speeds up to 10 fps with full AF / AE or to 11fps with AF / AE. The D4 also used the new 51-point advanced Nikon Multi-CAM 3500 AF autofocus system, which is said to be faster and more accurately than before. To save all the data coming at blazing speeds will need a high speed memory device similar to that D4 UDMA7 compatible with Compact Flash memory cards and new XQD.

Nikon D4 uses a full frame 16.2 megapixel FX format (36 x 23.9 mm) CMOS sensor. It has a natural range of ISO 100 to 12,800, but can go as high as 204,800, twice what he could do D3s. The best part of D3s is that even in the absurd ISO values ​​could still produce useful images and Nikon D4 states that can do the same, with high sensitivities. Nikon also uses its 3-processing engine, EXPEED image, which they claim is responsible for the faster speeds and improved performance.

Nikon D4 will be released in February and will cost $ 5,999.95 (body only), which is much higher than the $ 5,200 that costs D3s when he was released. Nikon is the assertion that D4 is better in every way compared to D3s and if you think $ 5200 for D3s was justified, then $ 6000 for D4 should look like a robbery.
