    Nikon D4
    - price: $5,999
    - FX-format CMOS image sensor 16.2-million pixels
    - The ISO range is listed again as 100 to 12,800, expandable to 50 to 204,800. Those were the original D4 specs I published back in December but then I had to correct them. I guess I was wrong in my correction.
    - 91,000-pixel RGB metering sensor. The new 91K-pixel (approximately 91,000 pixels) RGB sensor recognizes human faces for more frequent focus acquisition on human faces when Auto-area AF is used.
    - AF with 51 focus points. All 51 focus points are fully functional when lenses with a maximum aperture of up to f/5.6 are used, and the cross-type sensors make the most of this capability. Precise focus can be quickly acquired with autofocusing using all AF NIKKOR lenses1, even under lighting as dim as −2 EV .
    - Autofocus system: 9 cross-type sensors that are operational up to f/8
    - Full-HD movie recording at a frame size of 1920 1080 and frame rate of 30 fps is supported, and the H.264/MPEG-4 AVC video compression method has been adopted. Movies up to 29 minutes 59 seconds can be recorded.
    - A time-lapse photography feature, with which the camera automatically takes photos at selected intervals to record a time-lapse movie, which can be played back at normal playback speed
    - 100% viewfinder coverage (obviously)
    - Illuminated function buttons
    - Dedicated video button
    - Compatible with the new Nikon WT-5 wireless transmitter
    - Includes H.264 B frame compression
    - CF + XQD memory card slots
    - Integrated Ethernet in the camera
    - Contrast detect AF in movie recording
    - Low-pass filter for video recording
    - Smooth aperture feature for video recording

    - Silent shutter-release mode for live view photography that almost completely eliminates the sounds of the mirror and shutter operation

    Time lapse shooting
    - This new feature combines a selected frame rate and “shooting interval” in a dedicated time lapse photography menu. Playback can be achieved with a wide variety of speeds from 24x to 36,000x while producing a fully finished movie file output for faster multimedia workflows.
