If you don’t know what you’re doing, an expensive camera will produce a picture just as lousy as a cheap one will. But, if you do know your craft, then the quality of your gear can make all the difference.
Nikon’s latest flagship DSLR, the full-frame D4s, is a case in point. Aimed squarely at professionals, the D4s boasts a number of improvements over the older, highly respected D4.
Although the 16 megapixel FX-format CMOS sensor is largely unchanged, it’s been coupled with the new EXPEED 4 image processor to deliver unmatched image quality. The new processor also generates JPEG images that are usable straight out of the camera – a boon for photographers working in high-demand scenarios who want to transmit their images and make deadline.
Other features include a native ISO range of 100 – 25 600, 51-point autofocus system with a newly developed Group Area AF system that allows for more accurate subject tracking, and 11 fps continuous shooting with autofocus. It can also record 1080p video at 60 frames per second.
Price: about R90 000 (body only). Contact Nikon on 0861 164 566 or visit www.nikon.co.za
