I was lucky enough having the Nikon D4 (pre production model) for 24 hours. My original plan was to shoot a short feature with it and by doing so, check its strength and weaknesses, but the short notice confirming having the camera left me no choice but run a very “simple test” one that might not satisfy all….
I’ve divided the test to “night and day shots”. Both videos are NOT color corrected. I wanted to share with the community what I got out of the camera.
For my eyes, up to ISO 1000 the camera produces clean video images. Surprise, the “rolling shutter” effect is almost a thing of the past!Obviously having the camera for such a short time did not allow me to master it. I truly hope some of the short comings I discovered are due to my lack of “Nikon experience”. Hopefully those are not “short comings” after all….
My decision was to shoot with 2 prime lenses. The reason was to see how useful and functional the “crop” function is. So everything you see (but the Capoeira shots) was done with the Nikon 20mm + 85mm lenses.
What to like about this camera?I liked what I saw, though hoped I could get a bit more sharper image. I would love to experiment more and get even better results if possible.
Things I would love Nikon to review and hopefully change in a firmware update if possible:
A special thanks to my trainee assistant Claudia for doing at most for helping during this long day!Also, a big thank you to professor David and his team for preforming a short Capoeira theme for us. More about their school: suldabahia.at
