Nikon D4s Buzz and Rumors

Ever since its first appearance at CES 2014, pro photographers have been waiting for the latest word on the new Nikon D4s. Buzz around the Internet is that this camera will be Nikon’s first pro-level DSLR to shoot 4K video and could include a 16MP sensor, HD movie recording in 1080p at 60fps, a new focus mode for 3D tracking in 9 or 21 groups, and an improved time-lapse movie recording with an adjustable 1/6 stop interval shutter. Nikon has been playing this release rather skillfully with careful leaks of the camera at the Sochi Winter Olympics. And, according to, it will also be on display at the Wedding and Portrait Photographer’s International event and The Photography Show in the United Kingdom.

The alleged price-tag for this high-end pro-camera is $5,996.95. This is probably out of the range of most photography enthusiasts and hobbyists but will be an easy investment for pro-photographers to make. And, as more news about the specs and release dates comes out, we’ll be keeping track here at On the Board Walk with Beach Camera. Also, if you happen to get your hands on this camera, we’d love to hear your thoughts!
