Nikon D4S

 

A professional camera you can only dream of owning... but it's nice to dream sometimes

New Expeed 4 image processor ; Maximum ISO 409,600 (extended) ; Extremely capable AF with 3D tracking ; 11fps shooting ; Great low-light performance

Very heavy ; Could be criticised for lacking innovation ; Very expensive

Consequently, ISO sensitivity now runs from ISO 100-25,600 instead of ISO 100-12,800. The extended sensitivity settings have also been improved with a new Hi4 extended mode that represents a sensitivity of an incredible ISO 409,600.

Nikon D4S review

 

Flagship Nikon D4S DSLR may just be the best to date

Lightning fast response ; Full frame image sensor ; Huge bright viewfinder

Massively expensive ; Non-tilting (fixed) LCD ; No body integral anti shake

Nikon D4S review

 

The Nikon D4S created a lot of buzz when it was first teased at the Consumer Electronics Show 2014. The pinnacle of Nikon's pro DSLR lineup, it arrives some two years after the earlier D4 model, touting faster performance and autofocus system updates...

Almost indefatigable battery life, autofocus improvements for outstanding performance, great image quality, well designed

Big, heavy, expensive, still no USB 3 out, minor update over earlier D4, Canon 1D X has faster burst rate

The Nikon D4S is an evolutionary rather than revolutionary continuation of the earlier D4 model. But that's not to take anything away from it: as full-frame professional cameras go this is as good as they come.

Nikon D4s review

 

Nikon's flagship D4 DSLR has had a mid-life refresh and emerged with more power and new tricks. But is it worth upgrading to?

Outstanding image quality ; Shooting ability is unmatched ; Great all-round performance

That annoying dial lock ; Video recording time is limited ; The price

The best professional camera in the world for sports and action photography

It was inevitable. The Nikon D4 has spawned its follow-up, the Nikon D4S, as seen at the Consumer Electronics Show 2014. But there's a small problem: it's

Nikon D4S review

 

It's a great workhorse that can see in the dark, but you won't want to use ISO 409,600 very often

11fps shooting with AF ; Fast AF ; Massive ISO range

Big and heavy ; No Wi-Fi or GPS built-in ; AF points clustered in centre

The D4S is a great workhorse for professional photographers. It's built to last and gets great shots in conditions that would be too taxing for other cameras.

Hands on: Nikon D4s May 30th, 2014 | by Wilson Wong

 

On the whole, the D4s has some upgrades that might interest some users, but whether they make a difference to you depends on what you do with it.

Nikon D4S review

 

In terms of handling, little has changed since the original Nikon D4, though the few refinements to the D4S's AF and shooting rate are enough to make a difference. The autofocus system on the newer camera is one of the best I have ever tested.Where the...
