Nikon D4 DSLR camera to debut at CES 2012, gets tagged with $6,000 price 0

After previous rumors were confirmed, Nikon’s new flagship camera–the D4 DSLR–is set to show its stuff at the 2012 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Marketed by Nikon as “the definitive unification of speed and precision,” the D4 is designed for professional photographers who are looking for a DSLR shooter with superb image quality, excellent low-light performance, and full HD video capability.

The Nikon D4 packs a full-frame FX-format 16.2MP sensor, an ISO range of up to 204,800, and a new 91,000 RGB 3D Color Matrix Meter III.

Some of the key features of the Nikon D4 are:

• Full HD video recording
• Full manual control of exposure
• Uncompressed output: simultaneous Live View
• Audio recording for professionals
• Multi-area Mode Full HD Video: FX/DX, and 2.7x crop mode at 1080p video modes
• Simultaneous live view output without display / simultaneous monitor
• Full-time AF
• New LCD screen
• Time lapse shooting
• Remote shutter operation
• NIKKOR lens compatibility

If you’re a serious photographer and a hardcore Nikon fan, I bet you won’t mind dropping a hefty $5,995.95 cash when the Nikon D4 becomes available in February.
