Product Details

Nikon D4 Digital SLR Body, Model 25482

Success has a new name
Enter the new flagship of Nikon’s D-SLR lineup: 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.

Features

  • Catch moments others miss
    16.2 MP DX-format CMOS sensor and EXPEED 3
    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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Two-axis Virtual Horizon indicator
    Determine if the camera is level—horizontally or forward—through the viewfinder or LCD monitor.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Self-diagnostic shutter monitor
    Should any shutter variance be detected, D4 automatically corrects and adjusts between the actual shutter speed and correct shutter speed to sustain precision shutter operation throughout the mechanism’s lifespan.
  • 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.

The Nikon D4 excels with regards to sports and action photography. It allows you to get the shot before anyone else. The other factors like its metering, auto white balance and face-recognition all work twice as hard and fast to keep those frames per second truly great. The ISO range is fantastic. The D4 weighs much less and is very comfortable handling. It will definitely be the choice for photo journalists shooting the Olympic Games this summer. The WT-5 Wi-Fi transmitter enables Live View image to be seen on the iPad/iPhone and it can be used remotely to control the shooting mode, select the AF point and trigger the shutter. Overall this is an Awesome Camera.

AF-C has issues

I first purchased a D800, and then later a D4. I have owned a D90, D700, D7000, plus still own a D3X. I shoot a lot of sports with the D3X, and use AF-C single point focus. My primary lens is a Nikon VR 80-400. With that lens on a D3X, I get a hit ratio (good focus) of approx 90% (handheld). However, with that lens on a D800, using the AF-C singe point focus, my hit ratio fell to less than 50%. Same issue with the D4. I conducted test shots using other lenses (80-200, 28-300 and 85 f/1.4), and got the same issue. Switching to AF-C and 3-D, the hit ratio climbed, some, however the focus point would jump from horse to horse (in polo there are four players per team, plus two refs, for a total of ten horses on the field at a time). Since four players are wearing the same jersey, and a lot of horses look alike, in 3-D the focus point would randomly switch from horse to horse, and it also switched off the horses onto a nearby wall, then back to the horses. AF-C single point is my preferred way to shoot, it works great on the D3X (and on a D3S that I purchased after I returned my D4). Same issue with focus point jumping around in D9, D21 and D51. Focus point even jumped around when I has holding the camera on a stationary subject. Apparently Nikon has taken a process that worked, and "fixed it." If this had just occurred on the D800, and worked okay on the D4, then I would have thought it was just that one camera (or model of camera). However, since the issue occurred on both models, something is wrong in the new focus software for these two cameras. Nikon: Please address this issue, as I am sure I am not the only pro that uses the AF-C single point option. I can provide test shots from both cameras (in a month I shot over 17,000 photos with the D800 before I sold it. I probably shot over a thousand on the D4 before returning it to the store). Picture quality, when in focus, is excellent on both of these cameras. However, with such a low hit ratio, neither of these camera served my needs. I shoot at least 150,000 pictures a year, mostly sports, so I am not a rookie at this. I can provide links to my website, and even create galleries of examples if anyone wishes to see. As such, for both of these products, I can not recommend, until this focus issue is fixed. For a sports camera, which the D4 is designed to be, this is a major issue.

Less than 500 shots and now in service

By dwthomp

from Bonita Springs, FL, USA

Comments about Nikon D4 Digital SLR Body:

Love the camera itself but I have put less that 500 shots on it and got an error code that required going back to Nikon. Im hoping this is a flute. But when it works its an awesome rig.

Upgraded to Nikon D4Camera w Nikkor 80 to 400 mm Lens

By DickPhotog7

from Melbourne, Florida

Comments about Nikon D4 Digital SLR Body:

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.

Ergonomics rock!

By BrokenShadePhoto

from Seattle, WA, USA

Comments about Nikon D4 Digital SLR Body:

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?

D4 is Fantastic!

By Mike

from Laguna Beach, CA, USA

Comments about Nikon D4 Digital SLR Body:

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.

Simply the best

By ProWedding

from Undisclosed

Comments about Nikon D4 Digital SLR Body:

Upgading from Nikon D300, that's the best camera I have ever had. Simply the best camera avaiable out there. Terrific dinamic range, colours, shape, super-fast autofocus and shutter speed. ISO is superb. I do reccomend everyone could make this investment go ahead. The only con is the price.

World Class Camera!

By Captain Tommy

from Undisclosed

Comments about Nikon D4 Digital SLR Body:

The best I have ever seen at low light, speed at 11fps, incredibly quick focus and frankly the best sports camera I have ever seen. Brilliant Nikon!!! As a professional I need to have a camera that works---all the time, under some very harsh environments and helps me continue to build my business--this is the camera you want in your bag!!!

Upgraded from d3s to d4

By Nikonman

from Springfield, OR, USA

Comments about Nikon D4 Digital SLR Body:

I upgraded from a d3s that I owned for a couple years to the d4 which I have owned since August of 2012. The upgrade is well worth it for the additional features and image improvements over the d3s. I have found the d4's exterior is a little more rounded than the d3s and fits my hands perfectly. The transition between colors is smoother than the d3s. The auto focus detection at f8.0 seems to make the auto focus quicker and more accurate when I use my tc1.4EII and tc1.7EII. I can shoot birds in flight using the tc1.7EII because of the quickness and accuracy of the auto focus. The tracking in which I usually use the 21 point is amazing. It seems to acheive focus quickly and tracks well. I shoot mostly wildlife with birds in flight as my favorite subject. The exterior buttons which control settings are similiar to my d3s with some minor changes, but I did not have much of a learning curve on the d4. I have gotten better using the proper settings on the auto focus getting a high rate of keepers that are sharp. Lots of options using auto focus in which some people may have trouble figuring out the setting best for their style of photography. It has taken me a while to experiment with the auto focus settings to give me what I want to see in an image. Nikon has a winner with the d4. I tried out the d800 by renting one and decided that the d4 was best for fast moving subjects and can be used for a many different types of photography. Don't kid yourself, the d4 is also good for event shooting or landscape shooting, not a single use camera.

Fantastic Camera

By Erika

from Los Angeles, CA

Comments about Nikon D4 Digital SLR Body:

I am a serious hobbyist photographer. Not a day goes by that I am not taking pictures of something or other. I've been using the Nikon D7000, which is a great camera, but I wanted a full frame camera for improved low light performance. The price tag of the Nikon D4 made it seem completely unattainable to me, but I am 40 years old and never owned a pro camera before in my life, yet I am an obsessive picture taker so I decided to splurge and I went for it and I can't even believe the difference in the performance of the D4 (of course, I now have nothing to retire on, but...# I don't regret spending the money one bit. It's absolutely fantastic and worth every penny. I have nothing bad to say about it at all. The construction is solid, the image quality is gorgeous and it's lightning fast, which is great for me because I take mostly photos of babies and animals #dogs, running horses, etc), who are always on the go. It's heavy, but I still have my trusty Nikon D7000 for an everyday in my purse kinda camera and the Nikon D4 comes out when my sole purpose is to go out shooting. I see a lot of complaints from reviewers about the two card slots for two different kinds of memory cards, but I don't mind it. The Sony QXD card performs like no other - it writes super fast. I highly recommend this camera for any serious hobbyist or pro photographer. It's the best DSLR I've ever owned. Since I started using this camera and sharing the photos with family and friends, I've been asked to shoot two weddings, corporate & actor's headshots and family portraits. I have no plans on becoming a paid Photographer, but the offers have been very flattering and a testament to what a wonderful camera this truly is.
