Nikon D4 analysis (Sony sensor?)


You certainly have heard about the new Nikon D4 fullframe camera (Click here ot read the press release at BH). It has a new 16.2 effective megapixel, full-frame sensor (16.6MP total) and a super 50 – 204,800 ISO range. While there is no info about who made the sensor it’s easy to guess that it has made by Sony (using a tweaked Nikon design). Some of our readers asked me if such a sensor is going to be used inside a future Sony FF SLT camera and my answer is No!!! It will be more interesting to see the sensor that Nikon will put inside the D800. That 36 Megapixel Sony sensor is almost certainly going to be used by Sony in one of his future SLT cameras.

I will give you some important Sony FF update next week when I am back from my busy family trip. Meanwhile let me know what kind of feature you like from the new Nikon. I will check with my sources if Sony is going to “copy” some of them :)
