Amazon Germany has a listing for a Nikon D400 book that is a hardcover book and appears to be set for release in July 2009. A search for the ISBN numbers noted on the product page reveals nothing more than forum posts and blog chatter about this particular listing on Amazon.de.
Here is the link to the product page while it’s still up (copy and paste into your browser):

While the Nikon D400 clearly remains a rumor for now, this adds a little fuel to the fire that’s been building for a few months. If you recall, there was a similar “leak” of a book on Amazon.com for the Canon 5D Mark II prior to its release way back in May 2008. Remember this. After the leak, the author issued a statement vehemently denying any legitimacy to the rumor. We all know how that one turned out.
For the latest news and rumors on the D400, stay tuned to Photography Bay’s Nikon D400 page.
PMA 2009 rumors sure are heating up, as we get more “reliable” rumors of a Nikon D700x / D800 release. Presumably, this will be the rumored high-megapixel junior sibling to the D3x – in the same way the D700 relates to the D3.
Here’s one site’s purportedly reliable info on the new D700x / D800:
An extremely reliable source for RYC has confirmed a camera being field tested by Nikon to directly compete against the Canon 5D MKII. This camera will be announced at the PMA show this year.

Stay tuned for more on the Nikon D700x / D800 Rumors.
A short but direct post on POTN, claims that a “Canon Rep” mentioned a new Rebel and Mark III would be coming to PMA 2009.
I don’t put a whole lot of stock in third hand reports of what camera reps say, but as we close in to PMA we should start hearing more chatter about a number of manufacturers’ new products.
In the mean time, you can follow the latest rumors on the new Canon Rebel XRi / 500D / (or whatever it’s called). Also, Canon 1D Mark IIIn updates here.
A screen shot of what purports to be an inventory system displaying the Canon 1D Mark IIIn surfaced on DPR forums today.
We’ve seen these shots before with Canon cameras prior to launch. Next month, just prior to PMA 2009, will be prime time for Canon to release a 1D Mark IIIn as well.
Anyone else have thoughts, evidence or speculation on the Canon 1D Mark IIIn?
Nikon Rumors picked up a photo of a woman shooting with an undisclosed Nikon camera. The speculation surrounding the image suggests it could be a Nikon D400.
There’s a piece of gaffer tape over the Nikon label below the hot shoe.
Anyone want to debunk this “spy shot”?
You can bet that Nikon will be refreshing the D60 line soon. Will the new camera be called the Nikon D65? I don’t know; however, Nikon Rumors got some info from an unknown source on a possible D65 with the following specs:
- 12mp CMOS
- 9 AF-points CAM 850, 1 Cross type
- 720p video
- Live view
- Dust reduction
- PMA 2009 release
Frankly, I think anyone could take a guess at those features and end up being pretty close to the real thing. Consider this a blanket rumor for now. I’ll keep you posted if any firms up on the Nikon D65.
Stay tuned to Photography Bay’s PMA 2009 Preview for the latest news and rumors as we get closer to PMA 2009.
4/5/09 – Possible April 14, 2009 announcement. (read more)
