The D4s is the latest addition to Nikon’s award-winning line-up of Digital SLRs, designed to keep professionals ahead of the game, with a new level of performance designed to meet event the most demanding situations.

The D4s features a revamped 16.2 megapixel FX-format full-frame CMOS sensor, offering fantastic image quality, alongside an expanded ISO range of 100–25600 is extendable up to an industry-leading 409600 (equivalent). The D4s also features a new EXPEED 4 image processing engine which boosts the cameras overall performance, vastly improving image rendering and ISO performance. With the D4s you’ll also find 11 frames per second shooting with autofocus tracking in FX format, ensuring you capture every detail.

With the D4s, you’ll also find that Nikon have honed subtle details, that make all the difference to handling the camera when out shooting.

Full Details

The ultimate imaging machine has advanced. Built to keep you ahead of your game, everything about the D4S powers exceptional images at exceptional speed.

An expanded ISO range and EXPEED 4 image processing take low light photography to another level, making the camera a master of the dark as well as the light. Advances to AF performance offer improved acquisition and tracking at 11 fps, plus finer control over the AF area with the new Group Area AF mode.

Nikon’s RAW Size S file format allows accelerated image transfer onto networks, and a Gigabit 100/1000TX Ethernet port enables ultra-fast connection.

16.2-MP FX-format sensor
The D4S’s revamped sensor offers the ultimate image quality. Boasts fast channel readout, wide dynamic range, and clean performance at high sensitivities.

Phenomenal ISO
Shoot crisper, cleaner, better-defined images at high ISOs. An expanded ISO range of 100–25600 is extendable up to an industry-leading 409600 (equivalent).

11 FPS with AF
The D4S offers improved acquisition and tracking performance. Fires at a blazing 11 fps in FX format with AE/AF superior to its predecessor (the D4).

EXPEED 4
Boosts the camera’s overall performance to a whole new level. Vastly improves image rendering and ISO performance, and allows higher frame rates when shooting movies.

D-Movie evolves
Record Full HD (1080p) movies at 50p/60p. Access the ISO range from ISO 200 up while filming and control shutter speed, aperture, and audio levels, too.

Bettering the best
Nikon’s class-leading AF system has advanced to offer improved acquisition and phenomenally precise tracking of fast-moving subjects over long distances with the new Group Area AF mode.

Tough in the field
Protected by a tough, weather-sealed full metal body, the reliable and durable D4S sustains peak performance in the most demanding environmental conditions imaginable.

Fast track
Built for speed, the D4S implements Gigabit 100/1000TX Ethernet port and offers a new RAW Size S option for extended continuous raw shooting and accelerated image transfer, plus compatibility with Nikon’s fast WT5 Wireless Transmitter.
