CES 2012: Hands on with the Nikon D4

1:46 /

Lori Grunin runs through the features of Nikon's new professional DSLR, the Nikon D4.

Hi, I'm Lori Grunin, senior editor for CNET, here at CES 2012 with the Nikon D4. Just recently announced, the Nikon D4 is Nikon's new flagship $6,000 pro camera and frankly there's just way too much to talk about to make a 90 or 60 second video. So I'll just hit the highlights. It's big but it actually feels lighter than the D3S which it replaces. It's got a new 16 megapixel sensor, a host of new video capabilities that are designed to compete with the Canon 1DX and redesigned ergonomics that draws (some less?) with D7000 which I feel is one of the best designed DSLRs on the market. That includes the way you choose your auto focus points with a button on the side. This one for instance has a smooth aperture capability where you basically... when you're shooting a video, you toggle through the apertures, well, that's noisy but you toggle through the apertures by hitting the button and so you don't hear the noise made by the dial in order to change them and it's just full of subtle improvements like that, that make it really interesting. It's also the 1st camera to sport XQD and you'll get a little bit better burst performance with it but we're talking about when you get past like a 137 frames. So... unless you really shoot a lot of burst, you may not notice that, but of course there's capacity. In any case I really look forward to testing this. It's the Nikon D4. I'm Lori Grunin and we're at CES 2012.
