Nikon D4s Review

The D4S is mostly the same as the Nikon D4, either of which are Nikon’s quickest, smallest expert cameras ever produced for activities and activity photography. It results in customer cameras like the D810 and Canon 5D mark III absolutely in the dirt. If considering the mature D4, even bought brand-new, don’t! While the cost distinction nowadays is $500, in a couple of decades when you go to offer, a D4 will probably bring much less than a used D4S, more than creating up the $500 cost distinction nowadays.

Nikon D4s Performance

Photographing moving subjects in continuous AF, and with 3D tracking on, the camera tracked more than capably. I shot 11fps and all the frames were in focus. What’s also impressive is that when shooting at 11fps while in 51-point AF with 3D tracking mode activated you can actually see the AF point changing in the viewfinder. There are a host of alternative focus settings, including the Group Optimised AF mentioned earlier. This uses a group of 5 points and switches between these when focusing ideal for subjects that remain in roughly the same point in the frame. The 91k-pixel RGB metering system coped admirably with a variety of scenes including a dawn in central London, a bright afternoon in a country park, and an overcast but bright day at the races. The camera’s scene recognition almost always second-guessed the exposure I wanted.
