I personally prefer the low mp high FPS cameras (i.e. 1DX), so seeing that Nikon is following that too is pretty cool.

Nikon D4 specs:
•16.2 MP
•11 fps
•100-102,400 native ISO range, expandable to 50 and 204,800
•CF + XQD memory card slots! That's right, the Nikon D4 will have the new Compact Flash XQD memory card slot.
•Compatible with the new Nikon WT-5 wireless transmitter
•Integrated Ethernet in the camera
•Face detection/recognition function that will be working in the viewfinder (maybe some type of a hybrid viewfinder? Nikon had several related patents)
•Improved video, I have no other details on that but my guess is 1080p/30/25/24 and 720p/60/30/25/24 similar to the Nikon D800
•Uncompressed video out through the HDMI port
•Ability to assign the two buttons on the front of the camera to smooth aperture control during video recording
•Improved 51 AF points
•AF detection range will go down to EV-2.0 (the D3s went to EV -1)
•Autofocus system: 9 cross-type sensors that are operational up to f/8

The Nikon D4 is clearly made to compete with the Canon EOS 1Dx. I will stay conservative on the announcement date, but there is a very good chance that the Nikon D4 will be announced right before or during the PMA show in Las Vegas (January 10-13, 2012).



With the next round of pro DSLR cameras I think Nikon will make a clear separation of the D800 and D4. This is why they will probably announce both cameras around the same time in 2012. The D4 will have low MP count, high fps, high ISO. The D800 will have high MP count, low fps, lower ISO. This is a clear differentiation from the previous D3/D700 offering that shared the same sensor/technology.

If the specs are true... talk about a "me too" camera. Are Canon and Nikon spying on each other or something?

"Integrated Ethernet in the camera"

??? Through RJ-45 jack? Wouldn't that be too big?

I really appreciate the low pixel count. It shows they are focusing on image quality and not just squeezing as many megapixels out of the sensor as possible.

Oh, and ahem, almost forgot the obligatory, OMG PENTAX IS DOOOOOOMED!

These are getting kind of astronomical . (Incidently the old logarithmic DIN numbers (1 unit = 1/3 stop or +3 = 2x) would have their merits compared to the linear ISO figures as far as cramming these into camera displays goes at least .)

I don't mind - I could shoot my room with just the monitor lighting it at 12,800ISO, I definitely would try using 200k ISO to take pictures of my room without any lights.

They do both. Sort of like the D3* camera where they offer one for photogs wanting more MP and one for those wanting high ISO.

High ISO and fast FPS. So sports, indoor events, etc vs something more suited for studio and landscape.

I think it is a safe bet it will be a standard RJ-45. Just look at the now cousin in feature set, the Canon 1D X, because it has a full sized RJ-45 jack... These cameras are big.
