Shooting with the Nikon D4

I may have mentioned this before, but there are some seriously fantastic perks to my job… and one of them is getting to test out a wide array of great  new cameras, often before they even hit the shelves.

This weekend I had the pleasure of working with the newly announced pro camera from Nikon, the D4, which comes with a cool asking price of around £4,800.

Once I’d got over my fear of leaving the camera on the train, or dropping it, I found it great fun to use. It would be fantastic to be able to use a camera of this quality all the time, but of course, until I win the lottery that’s pretty unlikely to happen…. that said, I could probably save a few quid on my gym membership as lugging around ‘the beast’ as I called it is a workout in itself.

I used the camera to shoot a set for my Cardiff Arcades Project, which a couple of the following shots are from. You can see the complete set here, while you can read an ongoing Nikon D4 review over on the site I work for, TechRadar.

Hope you enjoy the pictures – next up should hopefully be the semi-pro Nikon D800, which comes with the (comparatively) reasonable price of £2,400!
