Nikon D4 Specs Emerge Ahead Of Launch

Reports and rumours surrounding Nikon’s latest professional-level DSLR have been swirling around for some time now, and a report today suggests it could have a maximum ISO range of 204,800 and may be launched in less than a month’s time.

The Nikon D4, successor to the D3 (below), has been subject to quite a lot of speculation in recent times but the guys over at Nikon Rumours have come up with a list of specs they consider to be on the money.

The Nikon D4 is set to have a 16.2 megapixel sensor, with an 11fps burst shooting mode and a native ISO range of between 100 and 102,400 which can be expanded to 50 and 204,800.

Canon’s latest pro-level camera, the EOS-1DX, has an ISO range which goes up to a maximum of 51,200 natively, though this is also expandable to 204,800.

The Nikon D4 will have an improved 51 AF points and there will also be improved video capture, and while details on this are not clear as yet, though 1080p video capture at 30fps is a reasonable guess. There will also be face detection.recognition features which will work in the viewfinder.

With Nikon also set to launch the more consumer friendly D800 very soon, we could be seeing both these models as soon as January, with the PMA photography trade show in Las Vegas on 10 January a likely showcase for the two new cameras.
