Built on the success of the D4, the new Nikon D4S is made to push the limits even further.

As Nikon's new flagship model, the D4S offers advances over the Nikon D4 digital SLR camera that include even better image quality enabled with adoption of a new image-processing engine, and more advanced autofocusing performance.

The D4S represents a concentration of Nikon's advanced camera development technologies and long experience. It is a model that offers a higher level of completion as a next-generation flagship camera, and expands the possibilities for professional photographers who always require the best possible performance in severe environments, particularly those in the fields of sports, press, and nature photography, as well as advanced amateur photographers looking for greater power of expression in their photographic works.

The new 16.2 megapixel CMOS sensor together with the also brand new EXPEED 4 image processing engine take low light photography to another level, making the camera a master of the dark as well as the light. ISO sensitivity of 100-25,600 expandable up to an incredible 409,600.

Advances to AF performance offer improved acquisition and tracking at 11fps, plus finer control over the AF area with the new Group Area AF mode.

Nikon's new RAW Size S file format allows accelerated image transfer onto networks, and a Gigabit 1000T Ethernet port enables ultra-fast connection in hard-wired network environments to boost your workflow performance.

Raw size S offers file sizes equivalent to 50% of a 12-bit uncompressed Raw size L file.

Video performance has been enhanced with increased frame rates at full resolution with ISO control. You can now record video in full resolution @ 50/60p in camera and on an external recorder simultaneously.
