Rumors

There are a handful of forum posters that actually have access to inside information.  These elect few don’t tout their credentials.  No, they quietly state facts, which are proven by the later release of new camera models.

Yesterday, one of those forum posters spoke to the coming Nikon full frame pro body:

A high pixel count pro body in 135 format, about 45 days to go for more details. :-)

That’s it.  That’s all he needed to say.  Jeff-c is generally on the money with leaks, predictions or whatever you want to call it.

Additionally, he’s not the only one calling for a big December announcement from Nikon – see here and here.

Better pinch those pennies, because Santa Claus is coming to town and he’s bringing a Nikon D3x or D4 along with him.

Over at a German Canikon community, a forum poster says he’s got some new rumors on a D3 replacement from Nikon (via Google Translate):

The latest information from the NPS say that environments later this year or likely D3x Nikon Nikon D4 and announced no later than the Nikon Solution in February also will be available. It will be a resolution of 24, x MP in a series of image speed of 5-6 pictures. The new D3 is to replace and not run parallel what astonished me first and also excited.

Yet another forum poster (this time AVForums) has claimed to have to goods on the much rumored Nikon D3x:

Went to dinner with Nikon this week.

The Nikon D3X is due in December 08.

Again, the 24MP number was tossed out there, which shouldn’t come as a surprise given that the D3x is expected to share the Sony A900′s sensor.  Also, this is the second time of late that we’ve seen the December ’08 time frame pop up.

If this is true, Nikon continues its terrible record of keeping product development news a secret . . . or maybe it’s all part of their plan?  The hype surround the past several Nikon DSLRs has been huge – and, generally speaking, Nikon delivered on the hype.

After a bit of confusion about who will see what and when, Kamera & Bild seems to have sorted things out and confirmed that Nikon’s press conference will be a worldwide event that takes place on November 20 (rather than October 22).  Kamera & Bild’s guesswork translates as follows:

Why the date of the press conference changed, we have not been told. Perhaps the product has been delayed, or the Nikon in Denmark had the time wrong.

Note, however, that the November 20 date, which is a Thursday, appears to be a solid, confirmed date.

Keep your eyes peeled for the Nikon MX format and/or Nikon D3x.

Seems Nikon’s BIG news may be out of the bag rather soon – say, October 22?  According to Zoom, Nikon has given notice of a press release for October 22, which will take place in Copenhagen, Denmark. If true, I imagine we’ll be hearing more from other parts of the world soon.

Nikon’s product secrecy has a terrible track record lately and I wouldn’t be surprise to see this next product leak out in the next few days.

What do you think?  Is it the Nikon MX format?  Is it the Nikon D3x?  Is it something else?  Or are we all having our legs pulled?

It’s been a while since we’ve heard any rumblings about a D3x.  I was beginning to think those rumors had died off in favor of the Nikon MX format rumors.

Not so fast, says a Nikon USA’s PR department through what I’m sure is solid 3rd hand info at DPR forums…

  • 24.4 megapixels
  • 9 frames per second
  • Full frame w/ crop capabilities
  • $6499.99 USD
  • same body as D3
  • December announcement/release?

Thom Hogan added to the discussion:

And people wonder why Nikon offers a doubled buffer for the D3 ;~)

I will note, however, that several prior rumors from as old as last October said the D3x was 12 months away.  I guess we’ll just have to wait and see how merry Christmas turns out to be for all you Nikon shooters.
