Product Description

From the Manufacturer

Rethink the limits of speed, precision, efficiency and versatility in the field. With remarkable enhancements throughout the entire workflow, thrilling new levels of speed, performance and ISO sensitivity and the superior image quality of a Nikon flagship HD-SLR, D4S frees professionals to perform at their peak in whatever conditions their assignments demand. Capture full resolution stills at 11 fps for approx. 200 shots with full AE and AF functionality, noise-free photos and videos up to ISO 25,600 (expandable to a mind-boggling ISO 409,600 equivalent at Hi4) and 1080p Full HD videos with high-fidelity stereo audio. Transfer files 10x faster with new 1000 Base-T (Gigabit) wired LAN, and increase that speed further by shooting a smaller RAW SIZE S format. Think and shoot in ways you may not have believed possible.

The evolution of a masterpiece.

The course of modern imaging has been forged by the talent and ingenuity of working professionals, but also by the introduction of a few cameras so innovative and forward-thinking, they redefined what's possible. The Nikon D4 has been such a camera. And now D4S proves that a great thing really can get better, with remarkable enhancements throughout the entire workflow, dazzling new levels of speed, performance, ISO sensitivity and, of course, the superior image quality of a Nikon camera.

Enhancements through the entire workflow

How do you make a revolutionary camera better? Improve its speed, precision and efficiency without sacrificing the features that make it exceptional. D4S builds on the success of D4 with 30% faster image processing and substantial energy savings—capture up to 3,020* stills on a single charge—an extended standard ISO range (100-25,600) with enhanced noise reduction, and improved tonal range and smoother gradations. Shoot 11 fps for approx. 200 shots at full resolution with AE and AF functionality. For faster initial subject capture, use five AF sensors as a single focus point with the new Group Area AF setting. Transfer files 10x faster than the D4 with new 1000 Base-T (Gigabit) wired LAN, and increase that speed further by shooting a new smaller RAW SIZE S format. Perform at your peak—D4S will keep up.

Nikon image quality

Stunning views of decisive moments

Like its predecessor, the D4, the D4S delivers a level of image quality that elevates the power of any story. An improved 16.2MP FX-format CMOS image sensor is paired with Nikon's spectacular new image-processing engine, EXPEED 4, for truly phenomenal speed and performance in the field. The combination achieves outstanding ISO sensitivity, faithful, vibrant color, natural depth, subtle nuanced tones from pitch black to snow white and smoother gradations in both stills and videos. Nikon's proven 51-point AF system and 3D Color Matrix metering III with a 91,000-pixel RGB sensor provide fast, accurate autofocus and metering. Enhanced Picture Control tone curves deliver more depth and clearer color rendition in "Standard" mode. For viewfinder shooting, a new custom setting lets you toggle Face Detection on and off as the situation requires for improved exposure bias around your subjects. You can even measure White Balance against any point in the frame.

Nikon flagship ISO performance

Noise-free shooting from ISO 100 to 25,600

Photographers go where their assignments take them, and this often means working in the high-contrast glare of the midday sun, the low-light at dawn or the poorly illuminated interiors of a sporting venue. Nikon flagship D-SLRs have long been recognized by professionals for their clean performance at high ISO settings, and D4S takes that performance to the next level. With a specially designed 16.2MP FX-format CMOS image sensor engineered to collect more light and render higher image quality plus the power of EXPEED 4, you can shoot sharp photos from ISO 100 all the way up to 25,600. The ISO range can be extended to a mind-boggling ISO 409,600 equivalent at Hi 4 for overcoming the most challenging lighting conditions. Enjoy great flexibility in your approach to fulfilling challenging assignments.

The choice for pros on the go

A camera that works as hard as you do

D4S is designed to keep you shooting wherever the story brings you, even after others have packed their bags for the day. Its increased ISO range means you'll be able to capture brilliant photos and videos in whatever light is available. Enjoy improved ergonomics and operability as well as flagship levels of durability and reliability—key for those who spend all day with a camera around their neck. Select from five image area modes while shooting stills in Live View: FX, DX, 1.5x, 5:4 and 1.2x. A new RAW SIZE S setting allows for shooting 12-bit uncompressed Nikon NEF files that are smaller and more easily manageable—speeding up the entire workflow. When you're racing a deadline at a major event, D4S can transfer images up to 10x faster than previously possible with its 1000 Base-T Ethernet. D4S is the camera for today's working pro.

Exceptional Low light ability 5.

I'm a prosumer so I do formal weddings, portraits, some sports, pets, etc. but even as a "regular" user, the 11fps is great.

I am a hobbyist photographer and I have enjoyed shooting with the 36.3MP Nikon D800 since late 2012. What drew me to the D4S was the following:
1. Fast Autofocus
2. Ability to shoot 11 fps and keep subjects that are moving in focus
3. Huge Buffer Capacity
4. Exceptional Low light ability
5. Better Auto White Balance than D800
6. Improved Video Recording Capabilities

On the D800, the compressed NEF Raw picture files are generally around 45 MB each and when shooting in the high speed continuous mode, it takes 20 NEF Raw Compressed 14 bit pictures in about 5 seconds before it starts to significantly slow down while the buffer writes the pictures to the memory card. The native ISO goes to 6400 and this camera has a built-in flash and an Autofocus Assist Lamp which can help in dark conditions.

When the D4S is paired with the Sony S Series XQD 64GB Memory Card (up to 180 MB/s read/write speed), I was able to fire off 80 NEF Raw Compressed 14 bit pictures (about 20 MB file size each) in less than 8 seconds in the high speed mode before it starts to moderately slow down. Though the camera does not have an Autofocus Assist Lamp, the native ISO goes to 25,600 which is 2 stops better than maximum native ISO of the D800. The pictures I was taking at 25,600 looked surprisingly good in terms of lack of noise but keep in mind I am casually looking at these pictures through a hobbyist perspective. When using the Auto White Balance mode indoors with the D800 when the lights are on, my pictures typically have a yellowish tint to them that can be corrected in post-processing or by selecting the right color temperature. I took a picture with the D4S in the same conditions and the white balance looked correct and not yellowish.

While I shoot with four different Nikon cameras, I find myself using the D4, and now the D4s, the most. I invested in the D4s for the subtle, but observable ISO performance improvement and to take advantage of the auto focus improvements/enhancements. To be sure, the D4 wasn't weak in either of these areas, but shooting in low light, with critters that like to move, or in good light with a lot of lens and often teleconverters, the D4s is just a great camera. After using AF Fine Tune to finesse my long primes and the combos using teleconverters, the D4s is the first camera I grab for, most of the time, depending on the light and how much magnification I need for the desired composition. I didn't need 11 fps compared to the 10fps of the D4, but with BIF, it may be helpful for getting that exactly optimum wing position, so I'll be glad to tap into it. With sports, or music, or dance, I'm sure this would be an excellent performer - and certainly would be my first choice.

WOW!!! I have a D800e and, at the time, had the D610. I sold the D610 in order to help the cost of the D4S and I'm sooooooo glad that I did. The D800e is an awesome camera that can hold its own, but when compared to the D4S, it feels like a toy. For one, the fact the D800e really only shoots well up to ISO 6400 feels "limiting" now that the D4S shoots up to ISO 16,000 comfortably. I sort of miss the megapixels going down from 36 to 16 (for cropping), but the far far superior quality of the photos from the D4S wipes that away. It also forces me to get a little better at composition in-camera.

In landscape mode, the grip and feel of the D4S is awesome. Meaty and great to feel. In portrait mode, the grip, for me, doesn't feel as good as the D800e with the Nikon grip (MB-D12). I don't have huge or small hands...just medium hands. The MB-D12 has more of a squared off feel and it really fits into my hand well. The portrait grip on the D4S feels a little thin to me. I don't feel like it'll fall out of my hands but this thinner grip doesn't just fall into my hands like the MB-D12. As a result, I need to take a second to search for the shutter button. It's not a dealbreaker but I know they redesigned the ergonomics and this is one area I found to be different.

The 11fps is freakin AWESOME!!!!!! I'm a prosumer so I do formal weddings, portraits, some sports, pets, etc. but even as a "regular" user, the 11fps is great. We have a Great Dane and the burst mode comes in very handy when we're playing with her. It just goes and goes and goes. The group autofocus is also great. I always use single point focus on my D800e but I'm a group autofocus guy on the D4S. Still center-based but having the slightly larger AF area is really nice. Great feature.

From the remarkable ISO performance to the redesigned focus system, I find this camera to be worth every penny. One thing worth mentioning is that I went from the D3 to this, so I did not have the D4 to compare this to. From what I understand, the D4s may not be worth the upgrade for the D4 (although a lot of my D4 wielding pro friends have made the jump) but from the D3/D3s to this was a fantastic leap.

I sold my Nikon D4 here on Amazon and bought the Nikon D4s. I have had to shoot up to 16000 ISO for MMA events and Ultra Marathons and the pictures come out very clean. For 1 event I took over 2000 photos and with the group autofocus only 3 where out of focus.
