The Nikon D4s is one of the most anticipated professional DLSRs of 2014 and after a tease at CES 2014 a new rumor points to an official announcement of the Nikon D4s release date, price and full feature set as soon as next week.
During CES 2014 we took a look at the Nikon D4s behind glass, but the company reps would not let us handle the new HD-DSLR and could not answer any questions about the Nikon D4s price or release.
Now, according to Nikon Rumors we could see an official Nikon D4s release date and price announcement next week. Here’s a look at what to expect.
The Nikon D4s release date is close with shipping to start in March or April. That’s just a little over two years after the Nikon D4 arrived on store shelves.
Nikon wouldn’t discuss the Nikon D4s price at CES, but according to this leak it will arrive with the same suggested retail price as the Nikon D4, $5,996.95 in the U.S.
In the announcement Nikon boasted, “As Nikon’s new flagship model, the D4s will offer advances over the Nikon D4 HD-SLR camera, including enhanced image quality enabled with adoption of a new image-processing engine. The new HD-SLR will also feature more advanced autofocusing performance,” but didn’t go into detail.
Now thanks to Nikon Rumors, we know a little more about this hotly anticipated camera.
- New focus mode
- Native ISO: 100-25,600
- White balance can be fine tuned by 0.25-0.50 Kelvin
- Same resolution as the D4 (16MP)
- HD movie at 60 fps/1080p
The full list of Nikon D4s details and rumored specs are available form the source. The official announcement and additional Nikon D4s specs and details should come to light on February 11th according to an invitation for an event which starts ahead of a photography show in Japan.
Nikon D4s sample images remain elusive, but hopefully Nikon will release a collection of full resolution Nikon D4s images at the event or in the weeks after. These images will allow photographers to explore the full capabilities of the Nikon D4s.
While many consumers rely on the iPhone or an entry level DLSR, the Nikon D4 which professional photographers rely on. When it comes to capturing studio shots or once in a lifetime photos the Nikon D4 is a top choice and the Nikon D4s will likely top the wishlists of professional photographers.
When we interviewed Andrew Weber to see the gear he carried to photograph the Olympics, his gear bag included two Nikon D4 cameras and when we followed up to see what gear he uses to capture the NFL Playoffs he still carried two Nikon D4 bodies attached to various lenses.
