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.

Catch moments others miss

Speed and accuracy in total harmony

D4 offers a level of speed and accuracy that will redefine your notion of the fleeting moment. A carefully selected FX-format 16.2 Megapixel CMOS sensor is paired with Nikon’s powerful EXPEED3 image processor for stunning stills up to 11 fps. A 91,000-Pixel RGB 3D Color Matrix Metering III sensor partners with Nikon’s Advanced SRS to deliver unmatched accuracy in every frame. Add a faster, more responsive 51-point AF system for a camera that can keep pace with you.
Nikon D4 D-SLR superior image quality

Stunning images every time

Superior quality you expect from Nikon

What are speed and accuracy without image quality? Nikon’s FX-format (36.0mm x 23.9mm) CMOS image sensor delivers 16.2 effective megapixels of resolution for exquisite detail. Each of this remarkable sensor’s 7.3-micron pixels is designed to collect maximum light to produce stunning images and video across D4’s broad ISO range of 100 to 12,800 (expandable down to 50 and up to 204,800). Expect the highest image quality in bright and dark shooting. Plus, EXPEED3 image processing yields the most faithful colors, tones and a wide dynamic range.
Full HD D-Movie (1080p) video formats: FX, DX or the new 2.7x Crop mode—all at 16:9 aspect ratio

Enhance stories with HD video

Broadcast-quality and outstanding control

When an assignment calls for broadcast-quality video and audio, D4 is ready. Choose from three Multi-area mode Full HD D-Movie (1080p) video formats: FX, DX or the new 2.7x Crop mode—all at 16:9 aspect ratio. Manual exposure control helps keep the same look from start to finish. Built-in HDMI lets you view footage on an external monitor or record uncompressed 8-bit 4.2.2 footage directly to an external recording device. Even take 2MP stills simultaneously while filming. Attach the ME-1 Stereo Microphone and record high fidelity audio with minimal camera noise. On-screen audio level indicators and a headphone jack help you monitor and adjust audio in 20 incremental steps. D4 takes you from inspiring stills to amazing videos with ease.
The Nikon D4 is intelligently designed for maximum control and an efficient workflow

Complete control and comfort

Designed for an efficient workflow

D4’s remarkable design is the culmination of photographer feedback and Nikon innovation. Adjust AF and AF Area modes without moving your eye from the viewfinder. Quickly select AF points with a new joystick style sub-selector—positioned for both horizontal and vertical shooting. In low-light, all operation buttons and dials are beautifully backlit. Two media card slots offer flexibility and control. Built-in wired LAN and the optional WT-5A Wireless Transmitter enable secure, high-speed file transmission as well as remote camera functionality. Simply put, D4 was built to meet professional demands.
Expand the D4 imaging capabilities with NIKKOR lenses, the Nikon Creative Lighting system, Nikon Speedlights, accessories and software

Expand your opportunities

Nikon imaging system compatibility

Draw on the full potential of D4: world-renowned NIKKOR lenses, the Nikon Creative Lighting System, Speedlights, accessories and software. Each impressive FX and DX lens in the NIKKOR lineup is fully tested to deliver sharpness, accuracy and reliability. Bring studio quality lighting to assignments with Nikon Speedlights. Only Nikon offers i-TTL (Intelligent Through The Lens) flash control, which allows Nikon Speedlights to access extensive exposure and metering data from D4 to provide unprecedented levels of flash precision and performance. Nikon’s professional imaging software, and a robust line of compatible accessories will help you expand your capabilities.
Nikon’s WT-5A Wireless Transmitter quickly transfers files and offer a new level of remote control

Never miss a deadline

The WT-5A Wireless Transmitter is designed for use with the Nikon D4 D-SLR camera

When the world is waiting, being the first to publish makes all the difference. Nikon’s powerful new wireless transmitter, WT-5A, attaches directly to D4 to securely and quickly transfer files.

HTTP Mode: Now you can use the web browser on your iPhone® and/or iPad®** to operate camera controls or begin Live View shooting, including starting and stopping HD video and more.

Image Transmission Mode: Transmit images to an FTP server or computer two times faster than the Nikon WT-4A.

PC Mode: Operate the D4 via Camera Control Pro 2. From one master camera, simultaneously release up to ten remote D4/WT-5A combinations.

**iPhone® and iPad® are are registered trademarks of Apple Inc.

New 51-point AF system

Nikon’s new advanced AF sensor uses 51 strategically placed AF points for faster focus operation by working together like a net to capture moving subjects or individually for pinpoint accuracy. Each of the 51 selectable AF points delivers fast and accurate AF detection to a low light level of -2 EV (ISO 100, 20° C) with every compatible AF NIKKOR lens.

Rich image previewing

D4’s beautiful 3.2-inch, 921,000-dot LCD includes an ambient brightness sensor for maximum visibility and crisp playback, menu adjustment and Live View shooting. Quickly enlarge images and videos up to 46x for spot focus confirmation—crucial for high-resolution shooting.

Our most rugged body yet

To sustain peak performance in the most demanding environments, D4’s body, exterior and mirror box are comprised of strong yet lightweight magnesium alloy. Thorough measures are taken to seal and protect against invasive moisture, dust and electromagnetic interference.

Dual memory card slots (CF and XQD)

Dual memory card slots (one CF and one XQD) Record two full cards of data, the same still image data on both cards for instant backup, RAW on one card and JPEG on the other or transfer data from one card to another. You can even designate one slot for data-heavy HD video recording.

Expand the creative potential of the D4

NIKKOR lenses & the Nikon Creative Lighting System for every situation

D4 with AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II
D4 with SB-910 AF Speedlight

Additional Features

AF detection up to f/8
D4 aligns its 15 cross-type sensors in the center to detect contrast for both vertical and horizontal lines with lenses f/5.6 or faster. The five central points and three points to the left and right of them in the middle line are compatible with f/8.
Multi-Area Full HD D-Movie Video Recording Modes
FX-format renders exquisitely shallow depth of field and wide-angle shooting. DX-format offers a 1.5x crop of the lens focal length, and 1920x1080 Crop format gives you a 2.7x angle of view—ideal for extending lens reach when you can’t get close enough.
91,000-pixel RGB 3D Color Matrix Metering III with Advanced SRS
Face detection using the optical viewfinder and detailed scene analysis using the 91,000-pixel RGB sensor enables superior auto exposure, auto white balance, AF performance and i-TTL flash exposure.
Built-in HDR
Combine two exposures at up to 3EV to create a single image revealing an extremely wide dynamic range but with less noise and richer color gradation than ever before.
Two-axis Virtual Horizon indicator
Determine if the camera is level—horizontally or forward—through the viewfinder or LCD monitor.
New mirror balancer
Minimizes the bounce of the mirror’s down movement, extending viewing time and allowing more time for AF operation—one reason D4 achieves AF and focus tracking even during high-speed continuous shooting.
Intelligent power management
Expect greater operating efficiency thanks to a new, small, high-capacity EN-EL 18 rechargeable Li-ion battery that can deliver up to approximately 2,600 images* per charge.
*Based on CIPA Standard.
View simultaneous Live View output on external monitors and record uncompressed video via HDMI terminal
Check video recording on the camera’s LCD and external monitor simultaneously; ideal for focus pullers and camera operators. When the highest possible image quality is required, you can bypass memory cards and record uncompressed footage directly from the image sensor onto an external recording device.
Time lapse shooting
Set intervals and frame rates in order to dramatically relay slow-moving activity at dramatic speeds. D4 lets you shoot time-lapse photography with replay rates from 24 to 36,000 times faster than normal and save them as movie files.
Two Live View shooting modes
Photography Live View and Movie Live View modes add flexibility; exposure, white balance, monitor hue, histogram, focus mode, AF area mode and focusing accuracy are easily confirmed.
Dedicated Nikon Picture Control button
Quickly access six preset picture control options—Standard, Neutral, Vivid, Monochrome, Landscape and Portrait—and up to nine customizable settings with a single button.
400,000-cycle tested shutter
For the utmost reliability and rigorous performance, D4’s shutter has been tested on fully assembled cameras for 400,000 cycles at extreme continuous burst rates.
Self-diagnostic shutter monitor

Upgraded to Nikon D4Camera w Nikkor 80 to 400 mm Lens Tried to go less camera after using the D3 and associated Nikkor lenses. Process too difficult. So I Upgraded to Nikon D4Camera w Nikkor 80 to 400 mm Lens. I'm happily in the saddle once again. I cover sports action for the local college and some high schools. I have all the range I need for football, baseball, golf (shoot after ball is struck), basketball (use no flash) and tennis. I prefer the zoom over multiple lenses to obtain the cover I need. Convenience wins over multiple lenses requiring lens changing as you go. This described combination consistently has produced outstanding images for daily print media. Richard. February 14, 2014
Ergonomics rock! Just got the D4 body yesterday and have been busy shooting with D3. The D4 feels real natural in my hands as did the D3 did after F-100. Only complaint: How do I load Provia 100F into this thing? January 22, 2014
The summum I do not know what DSLR offer little more, AAA D4. November 30, 2013
D4 is Fantastic! I use the D4 to compliment my Leica setup which I reserve for static subjects. The D4 is an unbelievably awesome machine with unprecedented focus tracking and clean noise free images to high iso's. I shoot everything in RAW, make sure I capture everything correct in camera and convert to DNG upon import to Lightroom. The files are fantastic right out of camera. Very happy with the results of this body. The 85 f/1.4G, 200 f/2G II and the 70-200 f/2.8G II are what I have shot with this body so far all with very impressive results. The bokeh of the 85 and 200 are very pleasing and appreciated in my style of photography. June 11, 2013
Video is amazing This camera is just phenomenal. Video is made easy now with separate headphone and boom jacks. Well done Nikon, well done. June 7, 2013

Answer: 
You can select while in live view the Face-Priority AF option. You can use it for portraits. The camera automatically detects and focuses on portrait subjects; the selected subject is indicated by a double yellow border. If the camera can no longer detect the subject, the border will no longer be displayed.

Answer: 
There isn't a *better* one: they are different.
The D4 is intended to replace the D3s, that is, a fast camera for news and sports photographers. It's main character is SPEED/HIGH ISO.
The D800 is intended to replace the D3X, that is, nature and architecture photography. It's main character is QUALITY/RESOLUTION.

I have a bag full of various AF-Nikkor lenses (20mm to 300mm, including 28-85 and 75-300 zooms and the 60 and 105 AF-Micro Nikkors) I purchased in the early-mid 1990's and have been using with my F4. These are not "D" lenses. My question is, would I get matrix metering and full auto-focus capability using these lenses with the D4 body? How about with the D800? The D3x? Ready to step up to a top quality digital SLR, and this question will be one of the determining factors in my choice. Many thanks for your reply.

The D4 provides recording true HD in 3 modes: FX, DX & 2.7x crop (1920x1080).
While recording video in one of these modes can you easily switch mode without stopping & starting in a different crop setting?
i.e. I start recording video in FX mode, and as moving subject distance increases I can switch to DX crop mode with uninterrupted video recording?
Likewise having switch from DX crop mode to 2.7x crop, subject distance decreases so can I, without recording interrupted, easily switch to DX then FX crop modes?

Thank you.

Answer: 
In order to achieve this you will need a zoom lens (to zooom in or out). Is not possible to switch from FX to DX or 2.7 crop, this have to be set before you start recording.

Answer: 
I'v heard that the earthquake and tsunami in Japan, followed by the floods in Thialand caused a bit of an inconvenience. My understanding is that he D4 is currently scheduled for release on March 20. ... Roughly 8 days from now. However, there are a lot of pre-orders out there that will be filled first, so it may be a while before the D4 is available from stock. Once the production models hit the market, there will be a flurry of tests and if the tests come out as good as expected there will be another flurry of orders. It may be several months before the D4 is available from dealer stock.

Early reviews claim 1080p video on the D4 is very soft on FF, not much better on DX crop, and you have to use 2.7x crop to achieve good quality video. The same reviewers claim video taken with the cheaper D800 in FF is sharp & much superior to the D4.
This doesn't make sense, but similar claims are being posted from various reviewers.
Do we not expect video on the D4 to be at least as good as the D800 in all video modes?
Sorry, can't check... like everyone else I'm still waiting on my pre-order to be filled.

e.g. If I pan or zoom video capture does not auto-focus.

It seems like I need to manually depress a button to request "auto-focus" - sometimes the camera guesses wrong & blurs everything before finding focus.

Does the D4 have a setting that would allow it to provide true auto-focus without this manual effort?

Answer: 
Please verify the settings that you have for AF (press the AF-mode button and move the command dial). You have 2 options:
AF-S Single-Servo AF: For stationary subjects. Focus locks when shutter-release button is pressed halfway.
AF-F Full-time servo AF: For moving subjects. Camera focuses continuously until shutter-release button is pressed. Focus locks when shutter-release button is pressed halfway.

You will need to get in contact with the manufacture of the memory card or Lightroom support. In order to transfer images from the camera to your computer (using the camera), please use Nikon View NX2:

I asked this before and the answer that was posted only stated that the mike I listed in my question would work with the D4. It did NOT answer the question at all and I wonder why it was posted in the first place. I want to record birds as I take pictures, not video. Thanks in advance.
