Join in on the rumor mill with the usual suspects on DPReview.com.

Chasseur d’Images says readers will be reading about the Nikon D300 and Canon 40D side-by-side in September. (via -you guessed it- DPReview.com forums)

Is Canon really scheduled to make press releases on August 20th?

More word of a Nikon D3 release SOON:

This isn’t official but I’m pretty certain there’s a fair bit of truth in this: Today my husband spoke to his relative who works for Nikon and they’ve apparently been sent information regarding a new camera (Nikon D3 – somewhere in the range of 18-22 mega-pixels) & new lenses all of which will be announced on 25th August. I’m not certain if he mentioned a full-frame sensor or if it’s going to be a 1.1 crop (my attention span on the phone is pretty bad!) Whatever the case, I hope they stick to this date for the announcement & don’t put it off for too much longer…

Maybe I should plan for some vacation time from the factory – there’s gonna be a lot of blogging to do this month if these rumors are legit.

Come on Canon and Nikon . . . I’m running out of creative names for these posts.

    Today, I have been contacted directly by Nikon UK that some interesting products are being released/announced on the 23rd August. This was after I told Nikon that I was giving advice to the Police about surveillance camera gear. Nikon wanted to get in contact with the surveillance people directly to advise them.
