Camera has nice features and HD video recording
Nikon fans have a new D-SLR to ogle courtesy of the new D4 that is aimed at the pro and high-end photographer. The camera has technology based on that of previous Nikon flagship D-SLR cameras.
The D4 has a resolution of 16.2-megapixels and can record full HD video. Nikon uses a 51-point autofocus system that has been tweaked to provide maximum speed. The camera is also capable of shooting at 10fps. The sensor inside the camera is a FX-format CMOS sensor and it is coupled with the EXPEED 23 image processing engine.
Nikon tweaked other areas of the camera for perfect low light shooting with a new 91,000-pixel 3D color matrix meter and a wide ISO range that runs from 100 to 204,800 for low light shooting. The native ISO range, however, is 100 to 12,800. For shooting photos on the fly, the camera was tweaked to be ready to use in 0.012 seconds. Face detection for up to 16 faces is supported on the LCD and through the viewfinder.
The photo and video files are stored to UDMA-7 CompactFlash cards and the camera can use the new
XQD memory cards
. The camera shoots two types of RAW files with normal NEF files and compressed RAW files.
HD video is recorded in 1080p with 30/24fps settings. If the resolution is dropped to 720p, the camera is good for 60fps.
One interesting feature for photographers with an external monitor nearby is that the live view image can be sent to the display live via the HDMI out port on the camera.
The camera will launch in late February 2012 and will sell for $5,999.95.

oh, the really small ones at the bottom are what you typically find in point and shoot cameras and in cellphones.
