Nikon D800 Replacement Coming Next Month…?

Nikon D800

New rumors on the Nikon front point to a replacement DSLR for the Nikon D800 and D800E next month. To be clear, that’s one DSLR that will serve as the successor to both the D800 and the D800E.

The new D800 model (possibly the D800s) will be closer in succession to the D800E due to the fact that it will not have an AA filter. The update is expected to be the equivalent on the D800 front to what we saw with the D4 to D4s upgrade – that is, improved processor, AF improvements and better low light performance.

Nikon D4 vs Nikon D4S Shutter Mechanism Comparison Video

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.
