    to 12800 with a wide dynamic range and an outstanding signal to noise ratio The benefit of a high efficiency sensor is enhanced by an integrated approach to noise reduction The layout of electronics within the sensor has been carefully configured to minimize noise Despite operating at the amazing speed required to realize approx 11 fps the D4 s image sensor consumes less power contributing to extended battery life Nikon s Integrated Dust Reduction System with Image Sensor Cleaning function Any dust that reaches the image sensor results in unattractive spots on your images To prevent this the D4 employs Nikon s Integrated Dust Reduction System which includes a self cleaning sensor unit with four different resonance frequencies to vibrate the optical low pass filter and shake dust away from the sensor This function can be set to operate automatically when the camera is turned on or off or to manual EXPEED 3 fast intelligent and powerful 16 bit image processing NEW The EXPEED 3 is the latest embodiment of Nikon imaging expertise in miniature a sophisticated system that is designed to analyze and process images at blindingly fast speeds with uncompromised precision The EXPEED 3 imaging processing engine optimized for D SLRs delivers faithful well saturated color natural depth and subtle nuanced tones from pitch black all the way to snow white In dim lighting at high ISO settings the camera s intelligent noise reduction lowers noise without degrading image sharpness High speed 16 bit image processing delivers smooth gradation with abundant tone and detail that can be applied to image integrity for a diverse range of uses Even JPEGs straight out of the camera maintain the accuracy required when directly submiting to a magazine newspaper or web publication The EXPEED 3 has been optimized for video as well Movie is rendered with suppressed moiré reduced false colors and minimized jaggies Noise reduction technology specifically designed for video preserves clarity and sharp edges even in low light The powerful EXPEED 3 is fast accurate and exceptionally energy efficient prolonging the camera s ability to endure extended assignments Edge to edge sharpness lateral chromatic aberration reduction High megapixel sensors can really test the quality of a lens but the combination of brilliant NIKKOR lenses and Nikon s intelligent processing measures will significantly reduce the risk of lateral chromatic aberration or color fringing to give you incredibly natural looking results Unlike other correction methods that simply eliminate chromatic aberration Nikon s method compensates for these color differences in a resolving index for each color making it particularly effective in producing images with stunning edge to edge sharpness Moreover because these corrections are made regardless of the NIKKOR lens used this feature contributes substantially to the sharpest images possible A new level of accuracy in auto operation with a 91K pixel RGB sensor NEW With Nikon s original Advanced Scene Recognition System the D4 achieves new standards of accurate autofocus auto exposure i TTL flash Active D Lighting and auto white balance
