  • Excerpt: As good as the D3s  for low light photography but with a little extra resolution and improved AF in low light. I bought it for low light work, and apart from the D3s there isnt another DSLR that can match it. I just wish it was smaller, like the D700, I would sacrifice some FPS and movie mode for size, then it would be perfect.

Superb performance

  • Excerpt: I have received outstanding performance in the 2 months that I've had the D4. I have used it to shoot several sporting events including Div I college football, college lacrosse, high school baseball and field hockey. So far, I haven't been disappointed. Shooting speed, low light performance, high ISO performance - are among the attributes I like the best.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD

Great camera, but not perfect!

  • Summary: Everybody seems to praise the D4 over the top, so why only 4 stars from me? Simple put: for six grand, I expect a camera that is perfect for the current state of the art. The D4 is not. I agree with most of the positive aspects and won't repeat them here, so here are my 10 shortfalls from "perfect".
  • Pros: Please see in summary

  • Excerpt: Nikon did well with this proprietary sensor - Color and tonal transition a definite step up. Should we have to pay the high price for 100% dependability? No. Is it 100% dependable? Yes! 16MB is fine for my work - Corporate event, portrait, travel and product/still life photography. Beautiful refined body and ergonomics. Problems: The separate XQD card and reader is a hinderance.

Serious Camera

  • Summary: I jumped from D80 to D4. I am not a pro photographer but definitely serious one. Just wanted to share my opinion in using this camera for first 48 hours of using it. Biggest surprise was it feels really light in your hand for the size of the body. Before purchasing this I had concern of its weight but I am totally satisfied with its weight distribution in my hand. A pleasant surprise. Great camera in low lighting something I need more than anything.

Great Camera, but what's with the battery?

Annoyed, Nikon

  • Summary: As usual Nikon has produced another superb camera. Unlike Nikon's historic MO, however, they apparently have adopted a philosophy of planned obsolescence. For the D4 the battery contacts have been moved to the other side, so that batteries used in older models will not work. So if you carry an older body as a back-up, you also have to carry extra batteries and an extra charger. What gives, Nikon?

  • Summary: Everybody seems to praise the D4 over the top, so why only 4 stars from me? Simple put: for six grand, I expect a camera that is perfect for the current state of the art. The D4 is not. I agree with most of the positive aspects and won't repeat them here, so here are my 10 shortfalls from "perfect". 1) The ISO performance is *VASTLY* exaggerated. ISO performance is 1 to 1.5 stops better than the D700, which is 5 years older than this camera.
