In the continuing saga of Nikon’s D600 dust spot debacle, Nikon has released another statement that it will replace users’ cameras if the dust spot problem continues after it has been serviced. Nikon states that the replacement will be “a new D600 or an equivalent model” (presumably, the D610).
This follows Nikon’s prior service advisory that it would replace the shutter assembly for free in affected Nikon D600 units. You can read the full release from Nikon below. [click to continue…]

Now that the Nikon D4S has been officially released, it’s time we start seeing some more rumors on the D800s (and maybe a D400 somewhere down the line?). For now, the latest batch of rumors point to mild upgrades for the D800s similar to those found in the D4S. Check them out below. [click to continue…]
Nikon has released a new firmware update for the D4. Firmware version A:1.10 / B:1.10 includes the following updates and modifications. [click to continue…]
One of the new “big” features of the Nikon D4S was a new mirror balancer and damping mechanism that reduces bounce during high speed bursts, which the D4S can deliver at 11fps. The comparison is pretty telling of the improvement when compared to the D4 operating at 10fps. You should notice that the D4S mirror bounces less between frames and the distance of the bounce is shorter as well.
Bonus fact: This video was filmed in slow motion on the Nikon 1 V2 at 1200 FPS.
