Details

Limits are there to be pushed. And this SLR is made to push them.

The D4 offers a powerful combination of up to 11 fps, a 16.2 megapixel FX-format sensor and phenomenally high ISO (extendable up to 204,800, equivalent). D-movie delivers all the flexibility you need for broadcast quality video. The Kevlar/carbon fiber-composite shutter unit boasts a standard life cycle rating of 400,000 releases, thirty percent more than its predecessor.

Ready for anything, the D4 has the durability and the versatility to realize every shooting opportunity out there.

The next-generation flagship digital SLR camera is equipped with a new Nikon FX-format CMOS image sensor (36.0 × 23.9 mm) and EXPEED 3, the latest image-processing engine specifically optimized for digital SLR camera.

Designed with the ultimate in versatility and functionality that offers superior image quality rich in detail along with excellent high-speed performance. The Nikon D4 has an effective pixel count of 16.2-million pixels, and offers superior image quality under a broad range of lighting conditions with its image sensor supporting an incredible range of sensitivities from ISO 50 to ISO 204800.

Newly developed Nikon FX-format CMOS sensor with 16.2 effective megapixels

The D4 employs a newly developed Nikon FX-format CMOS sensor (36.0 x 23.9 mm) with 16.2 effective megapixels. The ISO sensitivity range is from 100 to 12800 at normal setting, expandable to ISO 50 equivalent or ISO 204800 equivalent.

Advanced Scene Recognition System with enhanced accuracy realized by 91K-pixel RGB sensor

Advanced Scene Recognition System realizes face detection during optical viewfinder shooting. It achieves highly accurate control of auto functions such as AF, AE and auto white balance utilizing face detection information and detailed scene analysis information. Furthermore, it contributes to the performance of 3D-tracking with finer subject acquisition.

Multi-area mode Full HD D-Movie that enables a variety of expressions in three formats

It is possible to record 1,920 x 1,080/30p Full HD and HD movies in three formats that are FX-, DX-based and 1,920 x 1,080 crop movie format. You can select the format according to your creative intentions.
  • Further improved high-speed, multifunctional, high-performance image-processing engine EXPEED 3. [NEW]
  • 51-point AF system with enhanced performance in subject acquisition and focusing in low-light situations.
  • Superior quick response with approx. 0.12 s* startup time and approx. 0.042 s* shutter-release time lag.
