Camera Review Of The Nikon D4

The Nikon D4 is one of the best D-SLR cameras on the market. Although it is not quite as cheap as some of the others but you are paying for the quality and the control that Nikon offer. Personally I am a huge fan of Nikon in general and when I bought this camera I found that it added so much to my business. The Nikon D4 offers the ideal balance of Image Processing, ISO Range, Sensor Size and resolution. I have used it for a variety of clients but the first clients were an Irish photobook business that allows the user to create a photo book. They loved the quality of the photographs and they were done to a very professional standard. It was all the camera.

Pixels

The Nikon D4 D-SLR camera has 16.6 Million pixels available to the user. This is more than enough for any professional photographer. This D-SLR allows you to take extremely high quality photographs with ease and they will look superb which will make your clients extremely happy. With this amount of pixels it allows you to take on stills that you would not have taken on before. Its wonderful what confidence will do when you have the Nikon D4 ready to snap. The pictures are truly amazing that are Captured and this camera has added so much to my work and business.

Shutter Speed

For some clients of mine this is a big deal. Take photographs for a sports team so they want photographs that are good quality and sequenced like a video of every tackle or catch. The Nikon D4 allows me to get close to the action and the shutter speed allows me to snap great sequenced pictures. The Nikon D4 uses an electronically controlled focal plane, which allows for speeds of up to 1/8000 to 30 seconds.

  • Self-timer mode
  • Mirror-up Mode
  • Quiet Shutter Release
  • 5:4 Format
  • Single frame mode
  • Continuous low-speed; 1-10 frames per second
  • Continuous High-speed; 10 frames per second

Picture Control

One thing I like about the brand that Nikon have created is the control that you have over your photos when using one of their D-SLR cameras. They allow you to change between settings with ease, which gives you more control over the picture you take. The D4 is the same and it offers the standard Nikon Photo Control settings:

  • Standard
  • Monochrome
  • User Customised
  • Portrait
  • Vivid
  • Neutral
  • Landscape

Storage & View Finder

The Nikon D4 uses an Eye-Level Pentaprism angle lens reflex viewfinder, which adds so much to the camera. Its Magnification is 0.70x and the eye point is 18mm. The View Finder Frame Converge is:

  • FX (36×24)
  • 1.2X (30×20)
  • 5:4 (30×24)
  • DX (24×16)

Not only can you use the standard SD card but Nikon have now built it in to allow you to combine your camera with:

  • SDXC
  • SDHC
  • Compact Flash Drive

The Nikon D4 is a great camera and I would recommend anyone who can afford it to buy it.
