The Nikon D4 full-frame camera has been announced. In the article I put up, I included a comparison with the D3s and Canon 1D-X. It looks like they put in lots of great features in the D4 for pros, especially people who want to also shoot professional video, and use the camera in low-light conditions.

Looks like a fantastic camera, and a nice upgrade if you're already shooting a D3s. Its burst mode capabilities would be awesome for fast moving pelagics, and its claim of "clean" images at ISO 12,800 would bode well for those into wreck photography.

While it probably doesn't mean much underwater, the weight of the D4 body is now pushing 3 pounds. Back to the weight room.

The new D4 is looking good. I really like the the rang of ISO, and the fast frame per second rate. The thing that discourages me is the weight and the fact that I would want two. One for primary and one for back up. Then of course I would need a new housing. And, then a new lens...http://www.uwphotographyguide.com/forum ... =23&t=946#

Looks like a nice body but I would be more interested in the Canon 1D-X if I was looking to buy a Fast, low noise ISO camera. I think for underwater it will be more interesting to see what the 5D Mark III and D800 anounsments will be.

Looks like an impressive camera... should be a great choice for Nikon shooters wanting the best possible performance in a full-frame format. However, when the long-anticipated D800 comes out, that may prove to be a more practical choice for u/w use, due to smaller size (and presumably price).- Mark
