Nikon already revealed that the D4s is in the works — the company even had one on display in a ‘so-close-and-yet-so-far’ glass case at CES — but so far, we’ve had very little info about the camera itself. Officially, we know that the new flagship will feature a new image processor and “more advanced autofocusing performance,” but thanks to Nikon Rumors, we now know a bit more.
It’s only natural that rumors would start to break now that the Olympics are about to get underway, and indeed Nikon Rumors has acquired some spec details that shed a little bit of light on what we should expect from the D4 replacement.
First of all, it seems the price will stay the same ($6 grand US), but for that price, we’ll supposedly get:
- A new focus mode that can use 3D-Tracking in 9 or 21 point groups
- Native ISO ranging from 100 to 25,600
- Improved time-lapse movie recording
- White balance settings that can be fine tuned by 0.25-0.50 Kelvin
- Adjustable LCD color tone (wise move Nikon)
- and 60fps 1080p video recording capability
According to the NR report, we can expect an official D4s announcement sometime next week, and a ship date in either March or April.
