Engadget Summary

Nikon's D4S offers professional photographers the power, speed and control they need to snap the best photos in any situation. While the body has changed a bit from the D4, it's not a step back in any way, with ePHOTOzine saying the D4S offers "comfortable handling" and "doesn't feel unwieldy or overly large despite having a built-in vertical grip." The D4S is as speedy as its predecessor, thanks to an Expeed 4 processor delivering burst speeds up to 11fps, which are also accompanied by the "ability to focus and meter between shots," according to TechRadar. Ultimately, Stuff calls the picture quality "crystal-clear, sharp, and accurate." At $6000, the D4S is not priced for novices and beginners, but profressional photographers in search of a new camera or in need of an upgrade will be more than happy with what the D4S can deliver.
