Newly developed Nikon FX-format CMOS sensor with 16.2 effective megapixels [NEW]
The D4 employs a newly developed Nikon FX-format CMOS sensor (36.0 x 23.9 mm) with 16.2 effective megapixels. The ISO sensitivity range is from 100 to 12800 at normal setting, expandable to ISO 50 equivalent or ISO 204800 equivalent.
Advanced Scene Recognition System with enhanced accuracy realized by 91K-pixel RGB sensor [NEW]
Advanced Scene Recognition System realizes face detection during optical viewfinder shooting. It achieves highly accurate control of auto functions such as AF, AE and auto white balance utilizing face detection information and detailed scene analysis information. Furthermore, it contributes to the performance of 3D-tracking with finer subject acquisition.
Multi-area mode Full HD D-Movie that enables a variety of expressions in three formats [NEW]
It is possible to record 1,920 x 1,080/30p Full HD and HD movies in three formats that are FX-, DX-based and 1,920 x 1,080 crop movie format. You can select the format according to your creative intentions.
