Nikon has announced their new flagship camera, the D4.
Available possibly in March 2012, the Nikon D4 features:
- 16 MP FX-format CMOS sensor
- 51-point AF system
- ISO to 12,800 (204,800 expandable)
- 1080p/30p video
- $6,000 list price
Joe McNally (naturally) has a nice blog post entitled Shooting the D4.
“Engineered for professionals, D4 strikes an ideal balance between resolution, sensor size, image processing and ISO range. Its newly designed FX-format sensor and EXPEED3 processor enable image capture up to 10 fps with full AE/AF performance and Full 1080p HD video. Combine that with cutting-edge metering and AF systems, intelligently designed controls, an ultra-rugged body and multiple connectivity options, and D4 liberates the world’s top-notch photographers and multimedia artists like never before.”
