The ver­dict

Does the D4s deliver on its prom­ise?

NPhoto - - Test Team -

The D4s de­liv­ers im­ages that are big enough for most pur­poses with­out slow­ing down pro­cess­ing times, ham­per­ing con­tin­u­ous shoot­ing rates or fill­ing up cards and hard drives too quickly.

Our tests re­veal that the D4s builds on the suc­cesses of the D4 with an im­proved aut­o­fo­cus sys­tem, bet­ter de­tail re­pro­duc­tion at higher sen­si­tiv­ity val­ues and ex­tended low-light ca­pa­bil­ity. While it can be used for just about ev­ery genre of pho­tog­ra­phy you can name, it is un­likely to be the cam­era of choice for en­thu­si­ast or pro­fes­sional land­scape pho­tog­ra­phers, who are prob­a­bly go­ing to be drawn to a smaller, lighter model with a higher pixel count – for ex­am­ple, the D800e. The forte of the D4s is ac­tion and low­light pho­tog­ra­phy.

It’s a great cam­era, though we can’t help won­der­ing where the built-in Wi-Fi con­nec­tiv­ity and GPS tag­ging is. Both are avail­able, but only via ex­ter­nal add-ons.
