PRO ’s VIEW #2
The D4s is a beautiful beast. The small improvements are probably the best for how I shoot; little things like the change in placement of the vertical AF-ON button make so much sense and just make life easier. The dynamic range seems to have improved, too. I have far fewer blown highlights, even shooting in a relatively extreme lighting environment such as a live gig.
The colour depth also seemed to be a great improvement over the photos I shot at the same gig with my D3s – images were much more vibrant and, again, fewer blown highlights in the red and blue areas, which are the usual victims on concert photography!
I didn’t get to test the ridiculous possible ISO levels as it was a well-lit gig, but at ISO1600 the image was still smooth and noise-free.
