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
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: 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
Summary: There’s no getting away from the fact that this is a pricey bit of kit at £5289 – over £1500 more than the price of the D3s at launch, though compared to its closest competitor, the Canon EOS-1D X, it pretty much matches it for price, coming in at £10 less.
Pros: Performance is hard to fault, build quality is excellent and there's pretty much every feature you could ask for.
Cons: The price point means its out of reach for most of us.
Summary: Both the Nikon D3 and D3S were hugely important cameras when released, and for a while they were the pinnacle of professional DSLRs. However, with the resolution of the D3S starting to look a little dated, it was perhaps due an update.
Conclusion: The D4 is a camera to get excited about. In fact it’s phenomenal and there’s no doubt some of the images that will be seen around the world from this camera will be stunning. But that doesn’t mean it’s not without issues.
Pros: Great image quality, superb autofocus system in all conditions, great design (improvements), excellent movie mode, fast burst mode, long-lasting battery life
Cons: Image quality isn’t significantly better than Nikon D3S, pipped by the Canon 1D X in burst shooting speed, more expensive than most will be able to afford, USB 2.0 output (despite use of XQD card)
Excerpt: . It features a new 16.2 megapixel full frame sensor, 11fps shooting, Full HD video and a number of unique features.
Pros: Auto shutter speed control for auto ISO (based on lens), 11fps continuous shooting speed, Excellent 3.2 inch screen, Excellent weather sealed build, Deep buffer, 2 year warranty, 16GB XQD card and reader included, Greatly enhanced video recording, Full printed manual
