Introduction

The Nikon D4 may be marketed towards professional photographers, but the camera’s video features are no joke. The camera aced our video tests, and its extensive set of recording options and manual controls in video mode make it one of the best video recording devices we’ve ever reviewed. Of course, it also costs $6000 bucks (body only) and it comes in a bulky package that isn’t conducive for shooting hand-held video.
