Last week Nikon unveiled their new flagship DSLR the D4 after numerous leaks about the shooter had surfaced on the net. Today we can tell you how the Nikon D4 specs allow for wireless control via an iOS device.
To recap the new D4 comes equipped with the company’s new FX-format CMOS image sensor along with the processing engine that has been optimized for DSLR cameras. It will be able to handle a big range of lighting conditions with its 16.2 megapixel sensor, and the ISO range from 50 up to ISO 204800.
The D4 will write your images quicker than before with its compatibility with high speed UDMA 7 memory cards, and the new high speed XQD memory cards. But another feature adds to an already great package is the ability to control the D4 wirelessly using an iPhone or an iPad according to Redmond Pie.
Currently full details of this feature have yet to be revealed, but it looks like you won’t need to use the Nikon App Store application. Instead you may be able to take control of the camera by using Mobile Safari on the unit.
Nikon’s new DSLR also has a wireless adaptor the WT-5, so the remote control could be used with that attachment. Using the wireless control the user can see what the camera is looking at, focus in with just a simple tap. Users can also take control some of the main features of the device such as altering the white balance and the ISO settings.
Below you can see a demo video of the feature in action with the Nikon D4 becoming available next month in the US and UK priced at $5,999.95 and £4,799.99.
