Whenever a new Nikon DSLR is in the pipeline there is always a lot of interest from professionals and amateurs alike. Today we have news of a possible Nikon D4 release date and price revealed following a leak.
There have been rumors circulating for a while now suggesting that the D4 could be set to be unveiled this coming Friday in Hong Kong. Now according to a report, a leaked document that was originally spotted by Nikon Rumors suggests that the new camera will be available sometime in February, but an exact date wasn’t given. It’s not cheap though as the recommended retail price is a hefty $6000.
This will place the D4 between both the D3x and D3s models, which means the camera has some pretty high specifications. It is thought to come using a 16.2 megapixel full frame sensor that has a ten frames per second shooting speed, and an ISO range of 100 to 102,400. Video wise the D4 has full HD 1080p recording up to 30 frames per second, with H264 B frame compression as well.
For the viewfinder you will get the much sought after pentaprism design that covers 100 percent of the shooting target, and you can also use 51 separate points of autofocus. There are also illuminated buttons and face detection.
If you are not interested in getting the complete camera there is always the Nikkor AF-s 85mm f/1.8G lens to splash your cash on, which is believed to cost around $500 on its own. At this sort of money the camera is more for the professional photographer, or the rich.
