Never miss a deadline
  • The WT-5A Wireless Transmitter is designed for use with the Nikon D4 D-SLR camera
  • When the world is waiting, being the first to publish makes all the difference. Nikons powerful new wireless transmitter, WT-5A, attaches directly to D4 to securely and quickly transfer files.
  • HTTP Mode: Now you can use the web browser on your iPhone and/or iPad** to operate camera controls or begin Live View shooting, including starting and stopping HD video and more.
  • Image Transmission Mode: Transmit images to an FTP server or computer two times faster than the Nikon WT-4A.
  • PC Mode: Operate the D4 via Camera Control Pro 2. From one master camera, simultaneously release up to ten remote D4/WT-5A combinations.

New 51-point AF system

Nikons new advanced AF sensor uses 51 strategically placed AF points for faster focus operation by working together like a net to capture moving subjects or individually for pinpoint accuracy. Each of the 51 selectable AF points delivers fast and accurate AF detection to a low light level of -2 EV (ISO 100, 20_ C) with every compatible AF NIKKOR lens

Rich image previewing

D4s beautiful 3.2-inch, 921,000-dot LCD includes an ambient brightness sensor for maximum visibility and crisp playback, menu adjustment and Live View shooting. Quickly enlarge images and videos up to 46x for spot focus confirmationcrucial for high-resolution shooting.

Our most rugged body yet

To sustain peak performance in the most demanding environments, D4s body, exterior and mirror box are comprised of strong yet lightweight magnesium alloy. Thorough measures are taken to seal and protect against invasive moisture, dust and electromagnetic interference.

Dual memory card slots (CF and XQD)

Dual memory card slots (one CF and one XQD) Record two full cards of data, the same still image data on both cards for instant backup, RAW on one card and JPEG on the other or transfer data from one card to another. You can even designate one slot for data-heavy HD video recording.

Additional Features

AF detection up to f/8

D4 aligns its 15 cross-type sensors in the center to detect contrast for both vertical and horizontal lines with lenses f/5.6 or faster. The five central points and three points to the left and right of them in the middle line are compatible with f/8.

Multi-Area Full HD D-Movie Video Recording Modes

FX-format renders exquisitely shallow depth of field and wide-angle shooting. DX-format offers a 1.5x crop of the lens focal length, and 1920x1080 Crop format gives you a 2.7x angle of viewideal for extending lens reach when you cant get close enough.

91,000-pixel RGB 3D Color Matrix Metering III with Advanced SRS

Face detection using the optical viewfinder and detailed scene analysis using the 91,000-pixel RGB sensor enables superior auto exposure, auto white balance, AF performance and i-TTL flash exposure.

Built-in HDR

Combine two exposures at up to 3EV to create a single image revealing an extremely wide dynamic range but with less noise and richer color gradation than ever before.

Two-axis Virtual Horizon indicator

Determine if the camera is levelhorizontally or forwardthrough the viewfinder or LCD monitor.

New mirror balancer

Minimizes the bounce of the mirrors down movement, extending viewing time and allowing more time for AF operationone reason D4 achieves AF and focus tracking even during high-speed continuous shooting.

Intelligent power management

Expect greater operating efficiency thanks to a new, small, high-capacity EN-EL 18 rechargeable Li-ion battery that can deliver up to approximately 2,600 images* per charge.

*Based on CIPA Standard.

View simultaneous Live View output on external monitors and record uncompressed video via HDMI terminal

Check video recording on the cameras LCD and external monitor simultaneously; ideal for focus pullers and camera operators. When the highest possible image quality is required, you can bypass memory cards and record uncompressed footage directly from the image sensor onto an external recording device.

Time lapse shooting

Set intervals and frame rates in order to dramatically relay slow-moving activity at dramatic speeds. D4 lets you shoot time-lapse photography with replay rates from 24 to 36,000 times faster than normal and save them as movie files.
