answer 1
D3s was ranked 1st in low light performance by DxO. The 2012 sensor tech used in the D4 is cutting edge by means of maximizing sensor's microlens light transmission and microlens shape in order to gather and focus all the available light on the CMOS area which has also been improved over the D3s. Low light performance is not only about ISO, it's about how much DR would be achieved in that settling, how much color sensitive it would be etc. Nikon has it's own standards in determining how high it will rate the normal sensitivity. The photograph taken with ISO 12800 can be printed large and nobody will notice it is taken at that setting, it will look just the same as it would be taken with ISO 100. Nikon gives the indicated quality at 16MP, that's D3s+4MP, usable for unseen until now detail at all normal sensitivities, and fair results at ISO52k and 102k (Hi - modes), which by my opinion give charm or charisma of a photograph (little bit of noise). By comparison one would achieve excellent poster sized detailed results photographing the milky way at ISO8000 f/4 14mm, 30sec. With the D3s we had this ability, but now we have lots of detail too and even more improved high ISO, the D4 is a marvel, the crown of the camera world.

The question is not how high it gets, but how clean from noise it will be.
If , for example, the 6,400 ISO on the D4 will be as clean as 800 ISO on the D3s - would be awesome!

answer 3
There is a trade off when you add mega pixels. The individual pixel size shrinks therefore decreases the light gathering ability of each pixel. If Nikon advertise a higher native ISO capability, you would expect the performance at that ISO to be great. If ISO is important to you, you are good with what you have. The D4 was advertised as a press and sport camera, not light up the night like the D3s.

answer 2
Since the introduction of the D3 a lot has happened in the electronics field, especially with processors and memory. Specialist processors have doubled in performance while the size of the die (each transistor) has reduced by half. Smaller transistors lead to higher speed and less power usage.

The magnets and circuits used to create the motors have much more torque and can operate a lower voltages.

Typically Japenses, design a battery that supplies the right amount of power at the right time.

The only way to correctly assess the performance is to use them in side be side under the same conditions.

Try comparing a torch with a tungsten bulb with one with an LED - the powr usage ratios are so very different - I would reckon the same applies between the D3 and D4 - 4 years is a very long time in electronics.

answer 3
The engineering of the battery is such that the D4 will last longer on sustained bursts with it's new battery than if the battery from the D3s was used. The way the test is run to determine the number of shots, does not take advantage of the discharge profile of this particular battery. The test is ran in a method as to where a shot is taken, there is a pause, then another shot is taken. The engineers designed the D4 battery to better accommodate people taking advantage of the high FPS burst shooting. The battery from the D3s would not be able to power the high burst rate and data transfer rates for very long, thus, a new design :-)

There are plenty of reviews online that will help you learn from others experience. Video on the D4 has not been getting good reviews... actually video on any dslr has its challenges. If you were to believe the reviews then video from the Nikon D800 is sharper than the D4 & that camera is half the price.

if you're a professional and you need to be out shooting photos and video day in and day out, the D4 is the camera you're looking for. primarily because it's built for the kind of punishment that a working photographer is likely to dish out. everything from the high frames-per-second rate to the extremely long-lasting shutter mechanism, high-capacity battery and built-in web interface is geared to high-volume production. the D4 is nikon's top-of-the-line camera, and everything about it is first class.

I am a loyal Nikon Lover, so yes the extra money is worth it...to me...
I would say the best you can do is look at specs for both cameras and then decide the pros and cons of each camera and decide which will better suit you...and your needs...
Myself , I would never switch over brands because of all the money invested in lenses n such, and , to be honest , most real world photographers will not see the pros and cons in any model when it comes down to it... I have never read any spec on a Canon in 15 years or so that would make me change to that brand ...
I have an older D2X, Nikons Flagship Model in 2005-2006, and the difference in this camera and a D4 is like night and day for the most part... But its not like two comparable models of different brands ever seem to be so far apart that i would switch...only my personal opinion
Really it’s up to you and your needs , and if no investment in other photography equipment.
Normally if im torn between two manufacturers of something, reviews, magazine articles and user reviews are pretty helpful...
Hope this helps some...

Unless the sensor is the same design, one can't say with 100% assurance that "more pixels = more noise". One only has to look at the noise performance between the D3 and D3s - same size sensor, same MP but the D3s wins the battle hands down.

This is (a) a new sensor design with (b) smaller photosites than the D3s. We'll have to wait and see.

Question

Is it possible to save in RAW on XQD and transmit low-res JPGs to iPad or Laptop via WT-5 tethered to Lightroom?

Is it possible to save RAW files on either the XQD or CF card slot on my D4 and transmit small sized JPGs to my Macbook Pro or iPad utilizing the WT-5? My hope is to maximize the WiFi transfer speed for client viewing. FYI - I asked this same question almost 1 month ago and I've yet to receive a definitive response from Nikon support. Thanks!

Thank you Nikon_Lawrence. I appreciate your response. I know the latest version of Adobe Lightroom 4.2 is compatible with the D4 and can tether with it but I need to know if it's possible to set it up to save RAW to the XQD or CF and transmit the small sized JPGs to a laptop or iPad (I don't use Camera Control Pro nor do I plan on it). And if it is indeed possible, do you know if these WT-5 settings are achieved via the D4's controls or does it need to be set up via a separate WT-5 control panel or software? I haven't purchased the WT-5 yet but I need to know if it's going to work the way I want prior to making the purchase. Thanks!

With the D4 and the WT-5A wireless transmitter, It is possible to setup the camera to save Raw files on the XQD card and automatically send JPEGS to the CF card and a laptop using camera control pro 2. You can tether shoot with the safari browser using the ipad, but you will have to download the file manually. Please check with the software manufacturer to make sure that lightroom tether shooting is combatible with the D4.

There are some 3rd party LCD protectors, none that we specifically recommend.

The new Nikon D4 was release today and it’s usually available after 30 to 45 days after release date. You may want to check with your local dealer.

Question

Are the autofocus zones FINALLY going to be expanded? Inability to follow focus subjects deeper in the corners is a real pet peeve.

The autofocus zones are too limiting--the inability to follow focus a rapidly moving subject deeper in the corners or edge to edge on the frame is incredibly frustrating, particularly when using wide angle lenses or following a distant (and therefore smaller in the frame) subject, say on the edge of a hillside. It forces me to compromise my creative vision. Will the newer autofocus system address this drawback, or is it simply updated softeware and the same 51 focus points that have been used forever?

Question

Dynamic Range?

Has there been an increase in dynamic range vs. the D3 series? If I'm used to 10 stops with my D3s, what would I expect from the D4?
