16.2 megapixel resolution and full-frame FX format: a perfect balance

Seeking to offer uncompromised performance in both video and still photography, the D4 is a brand new camera fitted with a new 16.2-megapixel FX-format sensor of unprecedented speed, size, resolution and sensitivity. Despite a 33% increase in effective pixels over its predecessor, the D3S, the D4 delivers and processes data faster than any Nikon camera before it, providing photographers with up to 11-fps performance in FX format.

Close examination of a D4 image reveals 16.2 megapixels of stunning depth and detail that ensure flexibility in post-production, from magazine-quality prints to web publishing. Image quality this versatile is a direct result of Nikon's sophisticated approach to sensor design. The internal design of the sensor is carefully engineered to collect the maximum amount of light and render the highest possible image quality in the most diverse and difficult lighting conditions. At high ISO sensitivities, incredibly clear, smoothly graded results are maintained thanks to an optimized noise-reduction design and 14-bit A/D conversion incorporated within the sensor.

Unique to Nikon, the D4 expands your still image shooting possibilities with four image area options: FX format (36.0 x 23.9 mm), 5:4 crop (29.9 x 23.9 mm), 1.2x crop (29.9 x 19.9 mm) and DX format (23.4 x 15.5 mm). The camera also offers three image area options for Full HD video thereby tripling its potential for moviemaking. All these creative options are supported by a vast array of NIKKOR FX and DX lenses.

Standard ISO 100 to 12800, expandable from ISO 50 to ISO 204800 equivalent

Nikon flagship digital SLRs have long been recognized by professionals for their clean performance at high sensitivity settings, and the new 16.2-megapixel D4 offers low-noise performance at ISO 12800. It also extends the range one EV further, compared with that of the D3S, making ISO 100 standard; a welcome addition that allows the use of slow shutter speeds in bright sunlight. For more challenging conditions, equivalent sensitivities of ISO 50 and ISO 204800 are also available. The D4 is confidently capable of shooting still images and video* in nearly any light – even in places where the human eye has difficulty in recognizing details. Photographers are able to work in the harsh glare of the midday sun and the low-key light of dawn, and can capture images in the soft shadows of a dimly lit interior or a moonlit forest at midnight. In these situations, the camera's superb ISO sensitivity range offers photographers great flexibility in their approach to the subject matter.

  • *D-Movie standard ISO sensitivity from ISO 200 to ISO 12800, with higher sensitivity options up to Hi 4.

Optimum use of light: Nikon's proprietary image sensor technology

Such exceptional image integrity across such a wide ISO sensitivity range is made possible through Nikon's proprietary and exclusive sensor technologies. The pixels are spaced at a pitch of 7.3 µm while gapless micro-lenses are employed, and anti-reflective coating is used on various parts – all of which results in minimized ghost and flare. This detailed design gives the D4 an unprecedented ability to channel all available light efficiently and directly into the sensor. The advantage is maintained through improved sensor quantum efficiency, ensuring optimum conversion of light into electric signals, and delivering digital files at ISO 100 to 12800 with a wide dynamic range and an outstanding signal-to-noise ratio. The benefit of a high-efficiency sensor is enhanced by an integrated approach to noise reduction. The layout of electronics within the sensor has been carefully configured to minimize noise. Despite operating at the amazing speed required to realize approx. 11 fps, the D4's image sensor consumes less power, contributing to extended battery life.

Nikon's Integrated Dust Reduction System with Image Sensor Cleaning function

Any dust that reaches the image sensor results in unattractive spots on your images. To prevent this, the D4 employs Nikon's Integrated Dust Reduction System, which includes a self-cleaning sensor unit with four different resonance frequencies to vibrate the optical low-pass filter and shake dust away from the sensor. This function can be set to operate automatically when the camera is turned on or off, or to manual.
