Introducing The Nikon D4! (And Thanks To Our 1st Class Attendees!)

Posted by 5 on

After months of rumors, Nikon finally introduced last night the long awaited replacement to their top of the line Nikon D3S - The Nikon D4! The Nikon D4 will use a 16.2-megapixel FX-format (aka full-frame) CMOS sensor that can shoot at up to 11 frames per second and capture full 1080p HD video. Here's a rundown of the specs on this camera: • 16.2MP Full-Frame (FX-format) sensor, sized at 36 x 23.9mm • 91,000-pixel sensor dedicated for 3D Color Matrix metering to assist with autofocus and scene recognition • EXPEED 3 image processor • Back-illuminated buttons • 51-point AF System which is same as in previous model but with new cross-type sensors • ISO range from 50 to 204,800 (WHAT!?!) • 10 frames per second still shooting for up to 200 JPEGs; 11 fps shooting but focus and exposure are locked at the first frame • Full 1080p HD video at 30p; 720p shooting at 60p for slow motion • 0.012 second start time; shutter lag rate at 0.0042 second (same as previous model) • Two memory card slots: one for CompactFlash cards, the other for new XQD memory cards • 3.2-inch 921,000-dot LCD screen on back The Nikon D4 is slated to ship in late February 2012 and will have a suggested selling price of $5999.95. Availabilty will be very limited at first, so if you wish to pre-order to the first on the block to have it, come in or call us ASAP! For more information on the camera, please go to Nikon's webpage on the camera: http://imaging.nikon.com/lineup/dslr/d4/ Our many thanks to the 40+ folks who joined us last night for our first photo basics classes of the year! It was BY FAR our best turnout and a good time was had by all, along with some enthusiastic students ready to take better pictures! We'll have 2 classes again next Thursday: Our new " Mirrorless Camera Basics"  class from 6 to 7 PM followed by "Digital Point & Shoot Basics" from 7 to 8 PM. Check out our schedule to the right of this blog post for classes up to the 1st week of March 2012 (Nikon D4 image courtesy of Nikon USA). Addendum (2/8/11) - According to several blogsites, the initial delivery date of Nikon D4's has been pushed back to March 15th. Stay tuned for additional info ...
