Nikon D4 Leaks from Wells Fargo Advisory
The long-awaited announcement seems to have been leaked: we are about to get a new NIKON D4 camera.
When we say we, we mean the photographic world in general. Please don’t start to ring the shop until the formal announcement through our Facebook, Blog, and website. We don’t know yet what price they will be, or when they will be delivered, and we won’t price match UgandaFoto in Kampala, so don’t ask.
The specs seem to be spec-tacular:
- Full-frame 16.2-megapixel CMOS sensor
- 10 frames-per-second shooting at full resolution
- ISO range of 100 to 102,400 (expandable to 50 and 204,800)
- New 91,000-pixel RGB metering sensor
- Full-HD 1080p resolution video recording in 30p and 24p and in 720p down to 60p for slow motion.
- Smooth aperture control for video recording
- Face detection and recognition
- Ethernet port
- Dual card slots: New XQD Compact Flash (CF) and regular CF
- AF possible with f: 8 lenses – up from the previous f: 5.6 –this means that the light meter reads down to -2.0 EV. Wow.
- Since you are going to be taking pictures of black cats in coal holes at midnight...there are illuminated function buttons.
- Lighter than the D3s
Now there are bound to be many more things – I hope that NIKON follow their excellent practice in the past of issuing a printed pamphlet for this camera body so that we can garner the exact information to tell you.
Exciting times for NIKON users.
NB: All of the specs above were see on the Wells Fargo website.
