Nikon D4 is a 16.0MP Pro DSLR camera featuring a Full frame (36 x 23.9 mm) CMOS sensor, weather-sealed body, and Nikon F lens mount that was first presented in January 2012. Nikon replaced the Nikon D3S with this model, and the Nikon D4 with the Nikon D4s subsequently
Nikon’s D-SLR series has a new flagship: the D4. D4 is a professional camera that strikes the perfect blend of resolution, sensor size, picture processing, and ISO range. With its FX-format sensor and EXPEED3 CPU, it can capture images at up to 10 frames per second with complete AE/AF and Full 1080p HD video.
When you add in cutting-edge metering and AF systems, thoughtfully designed controls, an ultra-rugged body, and many connectivity options, the D4 gives the world’s best photographers and multimedia artists more freedom than ever before.
D4 has a degree of speed and accuracy that will change the way you think about time. For breathtaking stills up to 11 frames per second, Nikon’s powerful EXPEED3 image engine is combined with a carefully selected FX-format 16.2 Megapixel CMOS sensor.
Nikon’s Advanced SRS works in tandem with a 91,000-pixel RGB 3D Color Matrix Metering III sensor to give unrivaled precision in every frame. For a camera that can keep up with you, add a 51-point AF system that is faster and more responsive.

With aspect ratios of 5:4 and 3:2, you can shoot at a maximum resolution of 4928 x 3280 pixels. The D4 features a base ISO range of 100 to 12800, which can be increased to 50 to 204800, and it can store data in RAW format, allowing for more post-processing options.
The Nikon D4 does not have the highest resolution of any Full frame camera. The Sigma fp L, with its 61.0MP sensor, is the class leader.
Nikon D500 DxOMark Sensor Scores
DxOMark is a benchmark that evaluates the image quality of camera sensors scientifically. The picture quality of the Nikon D4 sensor was assessed by DxO Mark and had an overall score of 89. The details of their Nikon D4 analysis may be found here.
|Viewfinder||Eye-level pentaprism single-lens reflex viewfinder|
|Frame coverage||FX (36×24): Approx. 100% horizontal and 100% vertical1.2x |
(30×20): Approx. 97% horizontal and 97% vertical
DX (24×16): Approx. 97% horizontal and 97% vertical5:4
(30×24): Approx. 97% horizontal and 100% vertical
|Magnification||Approx. 0.7x (50 mm f/1.4 lens at infinity, -1.0 m-1)|
|Eyepoint||18 mm (-1.0 m-1; from center surface of viewfinder eyepiece lens)|
|Diopter adjustment||-3 to +1 m-1|
|Focusing screen||Type B BriteView Clear Matte Mark VIII screen with AF area brackets and framing grid|
|Reflex mirror||Quick return|
|Depth-of-field preview||When the Pv button is pressed, lens aperture is stopped down to value selected by the user (A and M modes) or by the camera (P and S modes)|
|Lens aperture||Instant return, electronically controlled|
The D4 includes an optical (pentaprism) viewfinder built-in, making it simpler to shoot in bright sunshine and other conditions where using the LCD panel is difficult. The viewfinder has a magnification ratio of 0.7x and a coverage of 100%. 100% coverage ensures that what you see in the viewfinder when shooting is exactly what you’ll get later in your image, allowing for more accurate framing and reducing the need for later cropping.

|Autofocus||Nikon Advanced Multi-CAM 3500FX autofocus sensor module with TTL phase detection, fine-tuning, 51 focus points (including 15 cross-type sensors; f/8 supported by 11 sensors)|
|Detection range||-2 to +19 EV (ISO 100, 20°C/68°F)|
|Lens servo||Autofocus (AF): Single-servo autofocus (AF-S); continuous-servo autofocus (AF-C); predictive focus tracking automatically activated according to subject status |
Manual focus (M): Electronic rangefinder can be used
|Focus point||Can be selected from 51 or 11 focus points|
|AF-area modes||Single-point AF, 9-, 21- or 51-point dynamic-area AF, 3D-tracking, auto-area AF|
|Focus lock||Focus can be locked by pressing the shutter-release button halfway (single-servo autofocus) or by pressing the center of the sub-selector|
The Nikon D4 is equipped with a Phase Detection autofocus system. The AF system features 51 focus points, 15 of which are Cross-type sensors. When compared to single-type sensors, cross-type sensors lock focus faster and more accurately.
|AF Live view||YES|
|AF Face Detection||NO|
|AF Contrast detection||NO|
|Number of focus points||51|
|Number of cross-focus points||15|
The Nikon D4 features a more advanced version of the 51-point focus system than the Nikon D3s. The D4 is the first Nikon DSLR to be able to autofocus with slower lens + teleconverter combinations at smaller apertures than f/5.6, thanks to the “Advanced Multi-CAM 3500FX” autofocus module’s increased sensitivity to light (focus detection increased from -1 EV to -2 EV), and the D4 is the first Nikon DSLR to be able to autofocus with slower lens + teleconverter combinations at smaller apertures than f/5.6. With 11 functioning focus points at apertures up to f/8, the D4 enables the use of f/4 lenses with longer teleconverters such as 1.7x and 2x.
However, the most significant change isn’t only the option to employ longer lens + teleconverter combinations. The Nikon D4 focuses better in low light than the D3s with any lens, including fast prime lenses, at -2EV focus detection. Although I enjoyed my D3s, they struggled to focus in low light indoor conditions, and the D4 far outperforms it.
|Metering||TTL exposure metering using main image sensor|

With the Nikon D4, you can capture films in MPEG-4 and H.264 formats at a maximum quality of 1920 x 1080 at 30, 25, or 24 frames per second. In most instances, the Nikon D4’s full HD resolution will be enough. However, if you’re looking for the highest-resolution footage possible, check out our selection of the Best 4K (Ultra-HD) Cameras.
A Mono microphone and a Mono speaker are included in the D4. Nikon D4 also contains a microphone input and a headphone jack for connecting external headphones, making it an excellent camera for high-quality filming.
|Compatible lenses||Compatible with AF NIKKOR lenses, including type G and D lenses (some restrictions apply to PC-NIKKOR lenses), DX lenses [using DX (24×16) image area], AI-P NIKKOR lenses, and non-CPU AI lenses (exposure modes A and M only); |
IX-NIKKOR lenses, lenses for the F3AF, and non-AI lenses cannot be used
The electronic rangefinder can be used with lenses that have a maximum aperture of f/5.6 or faster (the electronic rangefinder supports the 11 focus points with lenses that have a maximum aperture of f/8 or faster)
The Nikon D4 has a Nikon F lens mount, which presently has 316 native lenses available. Nikon F mount not only boasts one of the largest lens selections, but it also has backward compatibility, which means you can use F mount lenses from the 1960s. It is also widely supported by third-party manufacturer lenses.
Although the Nikon D4 lacks a sensor-based image stabilization system, many of these lenses include optical image stabilization.

What about exposure precision and metering? Nikon also improved the RGB metering sensor in the D4 with the newer autofocus system, moving from an outdated 1,005-pixel RGB metering sensor to a considerably more modern 91,000-pixel RGB sensor. The D4’s new metering sensor has much more built-in presets and face-recognition patterns than the D3s, making it more precise in choosing the best exposure.
When shooting portraits and weddings in 3D Matrix mode, I discovered that the D4 prioritizes skin tones significantly better, resulting in more accurate exposures in a variety of lighting situations. As a result, compared to the D3s, I found myself utilizing the exposure correction button less with the D4.
