Nikon D4 Hands on Preview

Scott Kelby’s show “The Grid” shows the D4 up close with NPS (Nikon Professional Services) and talks about some of its features.  Well worth a watch here.

*Update* For unexplained reasons, this episode has been taken down from Scott’s site but is still available on youtube here. At reduced quality.

The Grid with Scott Kelby - D4

I have mentioned before that I felt that little has happened in cameras for some time, that changed the fundamental workflow or “way” a photographer would take a picture.  There are some great features here, though the ip process for tethering through the WT-5 looks a little encumbersome for some work, it could be really handy as you can tether to more than one machine.  It also adds a benefit of keeping use of the card at the same time – A huge drawback to tethering in general AND it works with the iPad!  The auto iso feature sounds like a pain in the neck to me; the shutter speed minimum is archaic in its intention when you consider the effectiveness of stabilization today, at least it is adjustable.

  1. The show has been taken down from Scott’s site — sure hope you guys got a look at it — three NPS guests there who at one point at about 4:30 in the video quote a 6-month backlog as of the 25th for the D4. I guess they really didn’t have permission to go on tape. Wonder if they are still with NPS?

  2. Hello! I simply would like to give a huge thumbs up for the nice information you will have here on this post. I will likely be coming again to your weblog for extra soon.
