Recent rumors of the Nikon D800S continue to build and, now, it seems we have a release date of June 26. The D800S is rumored to replace both the D800 and the D800E as a mid-range pro, full frame camera in Nikon’s lineup.
The D800S remains the rumored model name; however, it could be called something else. Below is a set of rumored specs, but the main takeaway should be that the D800S upgrade from the D800/D800E models is akin to the D4S upgrade from the D4 model (e.g., better AF, low light performance and new Expeed 4 series processor).
Nikon D800S Rumored Specs
- 36MP sensor
- No AA filter
- Improved software to suppress moiré
- Expeed 4 or Expeed 4a imaging processor
- Higher resolution LCD screen
- Improved video capabilities
- Same AF improvements like in the D4s
- Improved low light capabilities: one stop better ISO performance
- Built-in GPS
- No Built-in Wi-Fi
- Improved frame rate at 5 fps (6fps with the MB-D12)
- Lighter than the D800/D800E
- Priced higher than D800E, which retails for $3,299
- Made in Thailand
We should hear some more leaks and rumors over the next couple of weeks as we build up to what should be the final release of the new D800S model. Stay tuned.
