Nikon has finally unveiled its newest flagship DSLR camera, the D4. The D4 features a new FX-format full-frame CMOS sensor that boasts 16.2 megapixels and an extended ISO of 204,800 at Hi-4. The D4 has a 51-point autofocus system and is able to capture fast action photos at 10fps.
The D4 is fully capable of recording 1080p videos at 24 frames or 30 frames per second. When recording at 720p, it can handle recoding at 60fps.
While the Nikon D4 uses compact flash memory, the Nikon camera also uses a new storage format called QXD from Sony. The format, according to Sony, allows for faster write speeds (125MB/s), for continuous shooting, as well as durability. This allows for continuous shooting of up to 100 16.2MP RAW photos or 1080p video recording without buffering. The QXD cards will be available in February in 16GB and 32GB sizes at $129 (PhP5,700) and $229.99 (PhP10,150) respectively.
The Nikon D4 will be available in February with a street price of $5,999.95 or roughly PhP265,000.
