Nikon includes free XQD card, reader with D4s?

The Nikon D4 flagship DSLR is shipping in the launch countries with a free 16GB Sony XQD memory card and reader, NikonRumors reported. This applies to those who pre-ordered the camera, and is estimated to be worth about $185. XQD cards haven't shipped yet, however, so the free storage might be included only with the first batch. The D4 is priced at $6,000 for a body only.

A premature Wells Fargo wire release has unwittingly leaked the full details of the Nikon D4.

It doubles the maximum sensitivity to ISO 204,800 and shoots as low as ISO 50 (normally 100 to 102,400). An upgraded 51-point autofocusing system can focus at f8 (up from f5.6) with face recognition an option, and a new color matrix metering system samples from 91,000 pixels.

CompactFlash group unveils XQD for cards

The CompactFlash Association on Wednesday brought out a true successor to its namesake card format. XQD sits between CF and SD cards in size but switches to the much more modern PCI Express interface to read data.
