The Nikon D4: A Pro’s Point Of View

Shutterbug
7 February 2013
  • Excerpt: The Nikon D4 is a large sized, 16MP, lightning fast D-SLR, with high-definition video capability good enough to satisfy an independent film producer. At first, my thought was to see how the D4 worked when used for the more mundane subjects I shoot than what it was designed for, and to see how it...

Digital Camera Review
28 December 2012
  • Summary: The past year may be known as the year of the full-frame camera and Nikon has a nicely balanced selection with the D4 for speed and low light, the D800 for its whopping 36 megapixel sensor and the D600 for price.
  • Pros: Excellent performance, Stellar image quality, Expanded video capabilities unmatched by competitors, Excellent low light/high ISO performance, Illuminated control buttons
  • Cons: Only camera to use expensive XQD card for second slot, ISO 205,800 is, perhaps, overkill, D3s may handle noise a little better, Not much of a jump in image quality from D3s

19 November 2012
  • Summary: It is hard to describe the D4 without superlatives. This large professional DSLR has a full-frame 16 megapixels sensor which reaches a class-leading ISO 204,800 and can shoot continuously at 11 FPS for over 15 seconds. Image quality from the Nikon D4 is among the very best in all areas.
  • Pros: Class-leading image noise, Superb dynamic-range, Ultra-fast autofocus, Very fast continuous drive with deep buffer, Extremely fast and responsive, Ultra-short black-out, Good color-accuracy, Flexible self-timer and exposure delay, Highly customizable with plenty of controls, Dual memory cards can...
  • Cons: Poor Automatic WB in low-light, Overly soft JPEGs, Bizarre Auto ISO, Poor Live-view, not Exposure-Priority, Exposure Delay mode hidden in menu, Indistinct ISO button, Rather bulky, No 16:9 guidelines for time-lapse, Asymmetric memory card types

Review: Nikon D4

Wired
1 June 2012
  • Excerpt: The Nikon D4 has some fairly big shoes to fill. Its predecessor, the 12.1-megapixel Nikon D3S 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 hel...
  • 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.

Camera Test: Nikon D4 DSLR

Pop Photo
1 June 2012
  • 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.

  • 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.
