Nikon D4


Not impressed by the Nikon D4 just yet? Vimeo member Dan Chung from DSLRNewsShooter throws up a video showcasing more of what to expect on the recently announced Nikon D4 camera. With tons more video features than the Canon 1Dx and a lower estimated price point, Nikon has really stepped up it's game. Unless Canon has some new surprise for us with a 5D Mark III anytime soon, the Nikon D4 is a camera I could really go for.

Some people will question what the quality of HDMI output is going to be, but just being able to capture through the HDMI port to something like the Atomos Ninja, bypassing the 29 minute recording issue, and saving in a compressed format that is native to FCP (no batch conversion), is a huge time saving advantage when using DSLRs for event coverage. That's worth money already to many.

After all of this information, there's no doubt the camera will be sold out on release next month. A few retailers have already listed product specs, but the only spot I know which pre-orders are available right now is via Adorama (click here).

Engadget just posted an article about the new Nikon D4, and it looks like a true winner. [Thanks Alex] A full frame camera that goes toe to toe with Canon's (unreleased) 1Dx, with built in Ethernet that can transmit photos or can be controlled remotely via a web browser. Wifi capable, and the most important thing for video shooters - uncompressed video output to capture to an external device. Estimated price $6K which is cheaper than Canon's 1Dx estimated price. Let's hope they don't fail by not providing FULL manual video controls. Check out more of the specs and a video over at (click here).

B&H has also published a product listing that verifies the new price (found here) and estimated release date (earlier than the 1Dx), along with an article for the Nikon D4 announcement with some other interesting insights (click here).

Nikon's higher end cameras tend to stay out of stock once they become available. If you're a Nikon guy who's already sold on the spec sheet, Adorama is already taking pre-orders (click here).
