More Nikon D4S specs and photos have been leaked on the web, ahead of the DSLR camera’s launch event which has been scheduled for February 11.
Nikon has recently announced the development of its next flagship DSLR camera. The Japanese company will replace the FX-format D4 with the brand new D4S, which is rumored to become official on February 11.
The company has already announced that the new model will offer several improvements over its predecessor. The confirmed list includes a better image processor and new autofocus technology.
Fortunately, inside sources are leaking more details ahead of the final reveal. As a result, we have just found out some new Nikon D4S specs and details.
Newly-leaked Nikon D4S specs refute 4K video recording, confirm new focus system
The new full frame DSLR will feature a native ISO sensitivity range of 100-25,600. However, the maximum value could be bumped up to 108,000 or higher using built-in settings.
The sensor will provide the same 16-megapixel resolution, although it is unclear whether it is identical or will suffer some changes when compared to that of the D4.
Nikon D4S will include full HD video recording at 60fps. This information squashes any 4K rumors previously leaked on the web. A time-lapse recording will be available with support for a flexible interval shutter.
Photographers will be able to adjust the camera’s white balance with 0.25-0.5 degrees Kelvin. Nevertheless, this feature is only recommended for those who actually know what they are doing.
Moreover, the color of the LCD screen will be adjustable to be closer to the photographers’ needs. As for the new autofocus system, it is said to include 9-point and 21-point systems with 3D Tracking support.
Nikon to sell D4S for a few bucks under $6,000 as of this spring
Before its announcement, the new DSLR has showed up in a photo from someone present at the Sochi Winter Olympics 2014.
As seen in the leaked shot and the dummy model from the Consumer Electronics Show 2014, there are some minor design differences between the D4S and the D4.
Nikon D4S price will be identical to the launch price of the D4 in the US: $5,996.965. On the other hand, the release date is believed to have been set for late March or early April.
As stated above, the official details will be revealed on February 11, so remember to tune in soon!
Meanwhile, it is worth noting that the D4 is out of stock at Amazon and it may never come back. The company has also released version 1.21.0 of the NEF codec for Windows PCs, which supports RAW photos captured with the Nikon D4S and the already-announced Nikon D3300.
