Freelance BBC shooter Johnnie Behiri has had his hands all over the new Nikon DSLRs recently and has been keeping me informed about their pros and cons. The big news here is just how good the Nikon D800’s video with cutting edge Sony sensor is relative to its big brother the D4.
Illya Friedman of Hot Rod Cameras investigated CES 2012 this year for EOSHD. Rather than reel off what we already know about new cameras, specs and product announcements Illya has written about the overall trends for the show and what it is like to go there. It is a unique and exclusive take on the biggest consumer entertainment show in the world – enjoy!
Illya also has a hands on look at a 8K TV, Sony 4K home theatre projector, the Nikon D4 and the very promising Fuji X Pro 1.

Nikon have answered in depth a huge range of video related questions for the new Nikon D4. EOSHD gives you the good, the bad and the ugly…
The Nikon D4 has the ability to monitor and control the camera via a web browser on a portable device like the iPad.
The Nikon D4 will soon be unveiled and will jump the availability of the Canon 1DX by going on sale in February.
The camera has a 16MP full frame sensor and completely revamped video mode with some new features not seen before on a Nikon.
2012 will be the best year for DSLR video since it all began to kick off in 2009 with major releases due from every big manufacturer.
This is a Photokina year starting September 18th as well, where we will most likely see the Panasonic GH3. There are other key events like CES and NAB within 4 months to keep an eye on, particularly for a working Canon’s 4K DSLR prototype.
