We take a look at the new Nikon D4 professional DSLR, announced at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

Nikon announced their new D4 professional DSLR at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas two weeks ago, and we had the opportunity to have a closer look:

The D4 feels great in the hands – a little bit lighter than the Canon 1D X. Jason mentions in the video that it shoots at 10 frames per second, however, the D4 can actually shoot continuously at up to 11 frames per second, and can even grab bursts at 24 frames per second, albeit at much reduced quality.

Here’s the key specifications:

  • 16.2 megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor.
  • 10 frames per second burst.
  • 11 frames per second with focus and exposure locked.
  • 24 frames per second at 2.5 megapixels.
  • 51 point autofocus sensor.
  • Native ISO ranges from 100-12,800, expandable from 50-204,800.
  • 91,000 pixel sensor for metering, white balance, and other features.
  • 1080p full HD video capture with uncompressed video output.
  • New batteries with higher capacity, up to 2600 exposures.
  • Dual card slots, 1x Compact Flash and 1x XQD (Compact Flash replacement)

We are expecting stock to arrive middle to end of February onย 15 March 2012, and the D4 is already available for pre-order on Orms Direct at R60,995.
