Similarities and dissimilarities between D4S and Nikon D4

Though it has already been said that there are very little dissimilarities between the Nikon D4 and newly arrived Nikon D4S, still there are some noteworthy changes in the latest version.

The major points are here-

  • In both cases, the Sensors are the same and it is 2MP FX-format CMOS.
  • But the Processing of D4 is Expeed 3 and the Processing of D4S is Expeed 4.
  • There is a big gap in the Standard ISO Range between D4 and D4S. It is 100-12800 for D4 and 100-25,600 for D4S.
  • There is a significant dissimilarity between the cameras in case of Expanded ISO Range also which are 50-204,800 and 50-409,600
  • On the other hand, Nikon D4 does not contain Group AF Area and maintain focus point at the time of changing orientation but D4S contains Group AF Area and maintains focus point at the time of changing orientation.
  • The Continuous shooting w/AFIS very close in the cameras. It is 10 fps in Nikon D4 and 11 in D4S.
  • In D4 Top Active D-Lighting option is Extra High but in D4S it is Extra High 2.
  • The memory cards are the same in both cameras and it is Compact Flash, XCD.
  • Again Top Movie Resolution 1080/30p (24Mbps) in D4 which is 1080/60p (42 or 24Mbps) in D4S.
  • The Interval Shooting Limit of Nikon D4 is 999 shots but it is 9999 shots in D4S.
  • In the case of Ethernet, 100Mbps is for D4 and 1000Mbps is for D4S.
  • There is a significant dissimilarity in a case of Battery life between Nikon D4 and D4S. Nikon D4 can shoot 2600 shots after every charge and the number is 3020 in Nikon D4S. (with EN-EL18a battery)
  • The battery is a very vital change in Nikon D4S. It was EN-EL18in D4 but EN-EL18a, EN-EL18 is used in D4S.

Thus, very easily it can be speculated that there are some significant changes in Nikon D4S.

Which change provides which benefit!!

Change is the rule of nature and thus people like changes. But the changes must have some benefits, isn’t it? Off course ‘YES’! Nikon has brought about significant changes in their latest camera Nikon D4S which is an improvement of D4. But what will the changes provide us newly? OR why has Nikon changed those features?

The answers to all such questions are here accumulated.

 Change 1- Expeed 4 processor instead of Speed 3.

Benefits- Wider ISO range up to 409600.

Change 2- A shorter travel distance of mirror.

Benefits- Reduces the blackout time of viewfinder.

Change 3- Better Processing system.

Benefit- The top burst rate has been enhanced up to 11 fps (with AF).

Change 4– Exposure system has been changed.

Benefit- Can detect a face from the start to fix to meter at the time of using OVF.

Change 5- Interval shooting has been enhanced.

Benefit- 9999 shots can be taken up in every sequence.

Change 6– Auto ISO feature at the time of manual exposure mode.

Benefit- Shutter speed can be chosen and a camera can decide its own ISO.

Change 7– An Exposure Comp button has been added.

Benefit- Exposure compensation can be applied to choose the brightness of the image.

Change- EN-EL 18a battery.

Benefit- Per charge 3020 shots.

So, it is now no more difficult to find out the reason why you will change your Nikon D4 and get the new D4S OR if you will keep the oldie. From all point of views, Nikon D4S will be the Top-Notch of 2017 DSLR era.
