Boasting 16.2 effective megapixels with an ISO sensitivity range from 100 to 25,600 (expandable from 50 to 409,600), the new EXPEED 4 image-processing engine complements the FX-format CMOS sensor to create images with stunning sharpness and enhanced depth. Meanwhile, its 91K-pixel RGB sensor complements the Advanced Scene Recognition system to deliver exceptional focusing in every frame.
Every detail of the D4S is engineered towards perfection. This supercharged dynamo is able to shoot at high-speed continuously at approximately 11 frames per second (fps) with autofocus (AF) and auto exposure (AE) tracking for up to 200 shots, letting you capture all your adrenaline-fueled action seamlessly. With a start-up time of just 0.12 seconds and a shutter-release time lag of 0.042 seconds, nothing escapes the D4S.
Expect sharp and clear pictures for all your action sequences. The D4S is designed with a plethora of AF options to deliver high-performance autofocusing even under extreme conditions. Equipped with 51 focus points, it is capable of tracking the subject throughout the frame, letting you refocus and lock on your subject quickly, even if the focus was initially on the background.
The new Group-area AF mode reduces background focusing to bring you greater focusing accuracy every time. The subject can be detected swiftly due to the 15 cross-type focus points at the centre of the frame. It also supports maximum apertures faster than f/8 for greater flexibility. Even when using 1.4× or 1.7× teleconverters, focusing becomes elementary so you can focus on capturing the perfect shot.
The lightweight and rugged body of the Nikon D4S is meticulously crafted from magnesium alloy, with comprehensive sealing against dust and water drops. It also possesses a better, deeper grip with more tactile buttons for improved operability and comfortable handling during shooting.
The Nikon D4S now has a more accessible glass pentaprism viewfinder with 100% frame coverage, coupled with an improved information display. Information is coherent and clearly laid out, with less cluttered icons. The D4S is also equipped with a 3.2-inch, approximately 921k-dot wide viewing angle TFT LCD monitor designed to suppress internal reflections and provide lucid information. Equally amazing are the newly tweaked display characteristics. You can customise its colours and marvel at the colour reproduction as it becomes even more accurate and vibrant.
Excellence has been redefined. The D4S uses a recording format of 60/50p that delivers fluid subject movement and smooth changes in exposure, even when the brightness of the scene changes dramatically. Choose from three image area options – FX-based movie format, DX-based movie format, and the 1920 x 1080 crop. The adjustable recording quality and sound level, along with frequency range (in vocal or wide) provide you with greater versatility during recording to satisfy the perfectionist in you.
In addition, the HDMI support allows for quick viewing and higher image quality during playback. For clearer audio, wind noise can be reduced with the built-in microphone. Auto ISO control is also possible when using ‘M’ mode, allowing the adjustment of maximum ISO sensitivity settings for movie recording.
The White Balance (WB) achieves greater accuracy and more vivid skin tones under a variety of lighting conditions thanks to an improved algorithm, bringing you greater efficiency when you’re working on-site. The D4S also features a spot white balance option that enables you to preset white balance during live view, from even a very small white or gray portion of the frame.
After you’ve completed your shoot, the data can be transferred in a flash with the D4S’ dual memory card slots that offer greater speed and convenience. The wired LAN (1000BASE-T) now performs at a faster transfer speed, significantly cutting down your transfer time.
Only the D4S lets you enjoy top-notch, intelligent camera operations with additional helpful information, such as an indicator for continuous shooting using the silent shutter release – so you can combine professionalism with discretion.
Begin a new photographic adventure with the greatest confidence and explore the boundless potential of the D4S with our range of NIKKOR lenses. Expand your creative possibilities with the array of cutting-edge accessories, including the full support of the Creative Lighting System, wireless accessories, GPS unit, and more.
Unbeatable AF accuracy and versatility
• New algorithms to further empower the accurate AF acquisition of extremely fast and erratically moving subjects, both near and far
• Tenacious AF tracking to frame fast-approaching or receding subjects up-close for a dynamic, professional composition
• Swift and strategic AF-area mode selection via focus operation buttons on super-telephoto NIKKOR lenses, for optimized AF in any situation
Accurate AF acquisition and powerful tracking to push professionals further, even in extreme situations
Expect an entirely new level of AF performance — one where you can conquer aesthetic goals while winning your editor’s approval. After listening to countless professionals who compete in this truly demanding field, Nikon responded with a new and inspired AF system — the ultimate focusing performance for professionals who face extreme situations day in and day out. With its thoroughly recalibrated AF algorithms, the Advanced Multi-CAM 3500FX autofocus sensor quickly zeros in exactly where and how you intend — no matter how near, far, or abruptly your subject appears in the scene. Expect detection accuracy, even for subjects in low-contrast situations. The detected subject stays in constant focus, thanks to bolstered tracking capabilities. Imagine a speed skater hurtling toward you: the D4S lets you track the subject more confidently until the frame is filled with a more aesthetically striking composition. The days of constantly shooting loose for safety are over. This same high-level AF performance applies to a wide array of challenging situations that today’s sports shooter must face. Moreover, tracking performance remains powerful even when the view of your intended subject is momentarily obstructed, such as during a football or rugby match. With true AF versatility like this, the D4S helps you capture more winning images in any situation.
Versatile AF-area modes for varying professional needs
The D4S further empowers its flagship focusing versatility. In addition to the four time-tested modes (single-point AF, dynamic-area AF, auto-area AF and 3D-tracking) a fifth AF-area mode option is now available. The new group-area AF focuses more securely on your desired subject by using five AF points simultaneously like a net, in contrast to dynamic-area AF which uses one initial AF point. This can be extremely useful when targeting unpredictable subject matter that is hard to lock on to — all while avoiding unintentional focus on the background. Photographers can now feel more confident, knowing that small, distant and fast-moving objects can be captured quicker, more successfully, and rendered sharper.
Strategic, swift AF-area mode change via focus operation buttons on super-telephoto NIKKOR lenses
A good game plan leads you toward the shots you want. For example, most sport shooters rely heavily on dynamic-area AF mode with 9 points, but there might be moments during a single game or performance when a different AF-area mode would be more appropriate. You may prefer single-point AF mode for pinpoint focus on an athlete’s eye, but then moments later need other dynamic-area AF modes or group-area AF mode if the same subject begins to move unpredictably. With the D4S, your super-telephoto NIKKOR’s focus operation buttons work as a strategic shortcut to one pre-registered AF-area mode. Now you can switch back and forth between your two most vital modes instantly, and without ever taking your eye away from the subject. Simply press to switch modes, and then release to return to the previous mode.
AF strength with diverse NIKKOR lens and teleconverter combinations
The D4S features 51 focus points with 15 cross-type sensors in the center area of the viewfinder, expertly detecting contrast in both vertical and horizontal directions for better AF performance. All 51 points are responsive to f/5.6 and deliver a full performance with all AF-NIKKOR lenses. In addition, the center nine points, as well as three points to the left and right of these nine, are compatible with apertures slower than f/5.6 and faster than f/8. The result: stress-free focusing when using 1.4x or 1.7x teleconverters. Moreover, 11 focus points are even compatible with f/8, thereby giving you significant AF power when combining a 2.0x teleconverter with super-telephoto NIKKOR lenses.
