Re: Nikon D4 with new video features

Thanks for posting Johnnie. I see what you are saying about the detail level. While the images are very nice they have a certain lack of detail, or at least less than I was expecting.

Question about HDMI output recording. Is it possible to record 1080p through HDMI? You mentioned how the signal defaulted to 720p for recording. Just wanted to check.

Re: Nikon D4 with new video features

Hey Tim.
Thanks for watching and commenting about the video!.

With the CF card inserted (for normal internal recording) apparently you can record 720p signal out of the HDMI output.
According to Nikon, if you take the CF card out of the camera and record to an external recorder, you get a full quality 1080 4:2:2 8 bit uncompressed signal.

I will try and get the camera again and do a test with an external recorder but it will take a while...

Thanks again.

Johnnie

Re: Nikon D4 with new video features

Thanks for posting Johnnie,

Having looked at the videos from D800 and D4, I observed that the D4 due to its lower pixel count is better in lowlight and , just my hunch, better in handling moire and color aliasing.

Re: Nikon D4 with new video features

Hi Ted.

I will try and put my hands on the D800 for a test. The price is more comfortable then the D4 and I'm very curios to see how/if the pixel count affected the picture quality.

Thanks!

Johnnie

Re: Nikon D4 with new video features

I wonder if the D800 in DX mode will equate to the D4 in terms of video quality. Wouldn't the sensor readout be approximately the same?
