Nikon D4S 16.2 MP CMOS FX Digital SLR
Nikon has developed a devoted following for their pro-grade DSLRs, with many professionals swearing by their cameras. This update to the excellent D4, the D4S, offers no big changes over its predecessor. While there is no urgent need to upgrade if you already have a D4, for professionals seeking a new camera, the D4S is one of the absolute best you can buy if you are looking for the fastest and highest-performing professional camera available for action photography.
The D4 was special for its ability to combine fast performance, top-notch controls and handling, and excellent video capture options. The D4S introduces improved continuous shooting with autofocus (11 frames per second for up to 20 continuous seconds), slightly better battery life, and a greater dynamic range; this camera can practically see in the dark with a top ISO of 409,600. The design is much the same as that of its predecessor, with full weather dealing, durable build quality, and an excellent grip.
The same excellent 51-point autofocus system is included, and the video capabilities now benefit from the addition of a 1080/60p mode. Video capture offers pro-level exposure and audio control, as well as an uncompressed HDMI output, and both headphone and microphone jacks. While the D4S only adds small changes over the D4, Nikon has managed to take their best camera for professional photographers and make it even better.
