p.1 #1 · Are D4's shipping without XQD Card/Reader Now?


i may have an opportunity to pick up a new d4 off cl at a reasonable price, and he's saying it doesn't have the card/reader...i know nikon said it was going to be an early release thing to include them in the box, so i'm just checking to make sure that current shipments no longer have them. thanks.

In the beginnng you got a D4 for EUR 5900 with a card and the card reader, now you get one for EUR5400 without the card/reader. That's the situation in Europe. In other words, the price dropped since the introduction, which is not really so common.

My NPS reserved D4 had it in it, but it was one of the last.
I bought an extra battery. I was worried that with all the video it wouldn't be as long-lasting. But I have yet to need it. I can make an entire day of video and stills on one battery.

i think i'm picking up the d4 this morning. have to decide whether to get a second battery (are there any third party versions out-i haven't heard of any) as a backup, and i will likely wait on getting the qxd card/reader until lexar's come onto the market and hopefully we will see a price drop. i also will probably get a screen protector although it sounds like most owners are not bothering.

Why would u even consider putting a 3rd party battery in a $6000 camera? It's only like $160 for a real one.

That like buying a Bugatti and putting in autozone brand motor oil to save a few bucks.

i was thinking the same thing i guess. might wait on it to see how the included batt does. if they are anything like the batts for the d3s, they last almost forever! but i always like to have a backup.

i hope it's acceptable to use a non-sony qxd card however..... i'm definitely waiting on some competition, can't see paying $100+ for a 16gb card no matter how fast it is...i can just shuttle my fast cf cards if needed, at least for a few months.

and the price i'm paying for the d4 reflects not having the card/reader.

I got mine on the 7th of the month and had no card or reader with mine. But B&H was nice enough to sell me one as well as a spare battery!

Picked up my D4 from a local store in August, called and asked if they could look thru their stock and if any had a card/reader..

When I came and picked up viola there it was, FWIW serial 2026xxx I guess a small bonus given my choice to always buy there versus go Amazon or the two biggies in NYC

FWIW I've also seen two D4 go up for sale locally, one for 5800 and another for 5500 or so that came with card, if only I had waited another month.

i think i'm going to wait on getting an xqd card and reader until pricing settles down, especially with lexar releasing their cards before year end. i'll just shuttle my 2 fast cf cards in the one slot as needed. i need to get a second battery at some point however...man they are expensive!

Newer D4's come with the internal XQD slot blocked with a piece of tape that reads "XQD standard cancelled, use adjacent CF slot"
