Hi, now that the D4s is a fact, what is to be expected by Canon?
We are living in a crazy age. ISO 409600. Looking forward to see some RAW samples...
Wow I didn't know it was going to go up on the ISO capability. I must now sell all my Canon gear and buy Nikon! Seriously though, I like seeing that...I should read more. Thanks for posting it!
They claim the sensor is “newly designed”…hmm I should rent one of these with their 200 f/2, and see what it can do in the twilight…but I bet the body will cost $400 for just a 4 day rental! LR doesn’t list it as “pre-order” yet, I wonder which rental place will get it first?
The standard ISO range still stops at 25,600…so that sucks. 1DX has been up to 52k in the "normal range" for a long time now!
The D4s has a “small raw size” of 8 megapixel…assuming that is a “crop”…again that’s something Canon might not ever do. Yet Nikon have done it since the D3, or earlier? Didn't the D4 also have it?
3020 shots per charge. What cells go into these batteries? I know the 1DX uses three 18650…I just assumed Nikon did the same. How are they getting so much more battery life? I know the 1DX probably consumes a lot more power, even than this new D4s…but I don’t know if Nikon use the same cells. (I could google it but I don't feel like it right now!)
The mirror has a shorter travel distance…interesting. And yet they didn't increase the fps, perhaps due to other factors such as processing, shutter...I don't know?
“Another small change is the camera’s ability to use the Auto ISO feature while in manual exposure mode.” But…but…but I thought all you “experts” had told me that was already available on the “old” D4…what’s up with that?
And what’s up with not being able to copy and paste dpreview’s text? I had to type that quote myself!!
