That’s also true for their newest version of the Alexa, the Alexa XT even though it uses the same old sensor. Read on to see why. ...
If you’ve been involved with HDSLR a bit then you know that Nikon hasn’t had a very big piece of the cake. Mainly due to bad compression formats their cameras weren’t used for video that much. With Canon, Sony and Panasonic taking most of the opportunity lately everybody’s wondering if Nikon has any products that can hold up against the competition.
Well the yet unannounced Nikon D4 could...
