Nikon’s New Flagship Professional DSLR Camera: Nikon D4

The competition in the world of photography is pretty tough, with the two big names, Canon and  Nikon, trying to overtake each other. Canon released the EOS-1D X during last year, a gadget that makes photographers drool, plus the Canon EOS C300 Digital Cinema Camera, the company’s first. As the International CES, the largest consumer technology tradeshow, is happening soon, Nikon is very close to launching their newest DSLR machine, the D4.

As follows, we offer some particular detailing about their latest achievement: a new Nikon CMOS image sensor in FX format, this translating into a full frame size of 36.0 x 23.9 mm, the pixel count goes up to 16.2 MP, while the ISO range is set between 50 and 204800.

The new EXPEED 3 image processor efficiently co-works with the new CMOS image sensor, shots can be taken even in low-light conditions or high-speed. The auto-focus is based on 51 focus points, plus, the camera also boasts a movie-record button, if the user wants to record videos.

It can record Full HD movies while being able to use three different image size formats, all these to let the child in photographers out. The camera comes in a magnesium alloy body, comprising O rings that seal off its extremely sensitive contents from dust or moisture. The shutter curtain will have increased durability thanks to Kevlar-carbon fiber layers used to wrap it.

The pricing for this engineering marvel is not cheap, Nikon suggesting a retail price of $5,999.95, sales starting during February 2012.
