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.
Speed and performance
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.
*Based on CIPA Guidelines
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.
A multimedia powerhouse
Professional video and audio capabilities
Today's stories are being told through stills, video, audio and exciting combinations of each. D4S is a multimedia powerhouse, allowing you to capture stunning and smooth 1080/60p video. Shoot scenes with tremendous depth and sharpness as well as with shallow depth of field or bokeh—and even capture 2MP stills simultaneously while recording video. For video, 2.7x Crop Mode extends the reach of lenses and produces outstanding video quality and detail. D4S adds real-time audio adjustments during recording, selectable sound ranges like Wide Range and Voice Range and improved wind noise reduction on the internal mic. Adjust color settings on the camera's LCD to better match an external monitor. Capture smoother Time Lapse sequences with reduced flicker and improved interval control (up to 9,999 shots), and even simultaneously record to internal CF or the latest high speed XQD cards and an external recording device. Create stories that move us.

Top Customer Reviews
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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
Compared to the D4, handling wise:
- The D4s has better AF-C focus. For New York Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, I increased the number of keepers with this body easily over the D4.
- Group AF. Also featured on the D750 and D810. Super useful for wedding receptions shooting with longer focal lengths or if you're shooting portraits with a premium thin DOF prime (think 200/2 or 400/2.8 wide open). My 70-200/2.8 shots are better in focus as well.
- The toggle in the back is now plastic. It used to be rubber (which I liked) but I guess the plastic one is less likely to fall off?
- Battery life. The EN-EL18a better is slightly better, but unless you really shoot thousands of photos a day on consecutive days, it doesn't matter as the first EN-EL18 battery works in this body as well.
- Buffer. With the new "G" 400MB/s XQDs from Sony, the buffer increases roughly 20%. For 14-bit lossless RAW, from 78 to 102. For 14-bit compressed RAW, from 104 to 129. Of course, if you're a sports shooter for a publication, you're likely shooting JPEGs anyways. But with this kind of buffer, you can afford to shoot RAW+JPEG ("G" XQD + fast CF) and touchup for portfolio as well. There's no other action DSLR that can match the D4s buffer right now.
Aside from the AF improvements and ISO improvements, not too much.Read more ›
