Conclusion: The Nikon D4 is a pro shooter's dream, with controls galore, and a big, bright optical viewfinder. This fully loaded full-frame D-SLR rattles off shots at a quick 10 frames per second, but all of this comes with a rather high sticker price and a steep learning curve.
Pros: Full frame sensor. Every physical control you could ever want. Integrated vertical grip. Shoots at 10 frames per second. Very low image noise. Uncompressed 1080p video output.
Cons: Big and heavy. 16-megapixel resolution. Only one CF card slot.
Excerpt: was a veritable low-light killer, capable of shooting crisp images even in poor lighting without a flash.
Pros: Separate 91,000-pixel sensor is dedicated to light metering, autofocus and recognizing and adjusting to different shooting scenarios. More rounded and ergonomic design with lower pentaprism still lets you see 100 percent of what you’re shooting through the viewfinder. Back-illuminated buttons help you set the camera in dark conditions.
Cons: Second card slot is Sony’s new and expensive XQD format. Built-in mic only offers mono sound. Burst shooting is a frame slower per-second than the competing Canon 1D X.
Excerpt: Faster, smarter, and more lust-worthy than ever, the Nikon D4 ($5,999) is the culmination of a carefully chosen list of features and enhancements, leaving what works and adding what’s needed for the latest in a long line of full-frame (FX) pedigree pro cameras. That’s something you do when your flagship camera is considered by its zealot users — people who carry out their work in places like the battlefield and space — to be an extension of their bodies.
Summary: Whenever a new piece of top-level gear comes along, there’s a rush by many pros (and more than a few amateurs) to get it right away. While the D4 does outshine its predecessor in many ways, we would not call it an essential upgrade for still shooters who already have a D3s. If more resolving power or the 1-stop improvement in noise control mean a lot to you, then it could make sense to upgrade from your D3s.
Conclusion: Four years ago, the D3 was revolutionary as a sports/action still-image DSLR . It was the first Nikon SLR that has more than 11 AF points, and it made a big jump to 51. The D3’s high- ISO capability was amazing compared to that from its predecessors the D2H/D2X. Concerning its still-image capture abilities, the D4 is more an evolution with slightly improved AF and essentially the same high- ISO capability as the D3S with a modest increase in pixel count, plus a lot of...
Excerpt: The D4 is Nikon's new flagship DSLR camera, and represents the highest evolution of Nikon's speed and ISO technology. We go in-depth with the camera to review what's new, and what's been improved, in what is easily one of the best digital cameras in the world today.
Pros: Low noise at ultra-high ISOs, Fast frame-rates for action, Fast and accurate auto-focus, Improved handling and comfortable grip
Cons: ISO performance only slightly cleaner than D3S, XQD card-slot forces users to upgrade
