Testing out the Nikon D4 in the studio. The preliminary results are pretty much exactly what I expected to see. Slight improvements across the board, but nothing new and groundbreaking. No big surprises either, just modest improvements and refinements to all of the various integrated systems that make Nikon my preferred camera.
As a wedding photographer, the single most important aspect of being great at it is simply being able to get the shots. There are no do-overs. Nikon equipment allows me to to fine tune the camera instantly when transferring situations or shots. I never miss the shot. Period. With the current level of technology in these Nikon DSLR cameras, even if I make a mistake there is enough lattitude in the dynamic range of the camera to make up for that mistake. Combined with extraordinarily clean high ISO noise characteristics, it’s impossible to take a bad shot with this camera.
Wedding photography has a new king of the block. It’s the Nikon D4, and I will be shooting all my weddings for 2012 through the foreseeable future with this camera.
