Nikon D400 Book Available for Pre-Order?

Nikon D400 Book

Now that we’re through the gauntlet of camera releases over the past few months, I suppose it’s time to fuel the fires for the next round for Summer and Fall 2012.  What could be better to kick up the rumor mill than a book listing for the Nikon D400 on Amazon?

It’s available for pre-order and currently dated for September 2012.

Nikon D4 and D400 Due Next Month

In what could be the biggest camera launch of the year, one of Nikon Rumors’ sources has tipped the launch of the Nikon D4 and D400 for August.

Given the coming Sony A77 with a 24MP sensor, it is most likely that the D400 will sport the same 24MP APS-C sensor but labeled with the ubiquitous “Developed by Nikon” asterisk seen in recent Nikon pro-DSLR specs.  The D400 will almost certainly feature 1080p video to follow the recent trend of Nikon DSLRs.  Hopefully, the D400 will avoid the cumbersome aperture adjustment problem that made the Nikon D7000 more frustrating for video capture.

As for the Nikon D4, [Read more...]

Nikon 2009-2010 DSLR Roadmap Leaked?

Nikon may have just had a huge cat get out of the bag.  Leaks like this don’t happen very often; however, they do happen.  If this info, which was posted on a Czech forum is legit, Nikon’s rumor mill is going to be rather boring for the next couple of years.

The forum poster lays out a number of Nikon DSLR bodies and lenses, along with purported release dates for 2009 and 2010.  Here’s the summary version of the possibly leaked roadmap: [Read more...]

Nikon D400 and D750 Speculation

Digital Rev has a new, suggestive article entitled The Nikon D400 & D750 Revealed or Just Viral Marketing?  While the title would lead you to believe that there’s been some kind of leak or specific promotion on the D400 and/or D750 (neither of which have been confirmed by Nikon), the post appears to simply be Digital Rev’s take on recent rumors, along with some fancy mockups and spec/wish list.

I’ve had several emails to this article, suggesting that it’s a leak of some sort.  Upon second glance, it seems to just be a racy title with no evidence of either of these cameras being revealed by Nikon, or evidence of viral marketing on behalf of Nikon.  In essence, it appears to simply be speculation.

We’re still waiting for something solid on the Nikon D400, Nikon D750 or Nikon D800.  Stay tuned.

Nikon D400 Coming April 14th-ish?

Several dates have recently surfaced regarding the release of the Nikon D400, which everyone thought would appear at PMA.  With Canon’s announcement of the Rebel T1i out of the way, many expect Nikon’s D400 news to be imminent.  The consensus appears to be April 14th as the date Nikon has invited certain publications to a press conferences.

Additional speculation suggests that it may not be the D400 that arrives, but rather a D40/D60 line of camera that is introduced.  Of course, Nikon could drop a couple of new models like they did with the D3/D300 combo.

Nikon Rumors put together a translated version of a press invite, which suggests multiple products released on April 14.

  • 15.3 MP
  • 6 frames per second

  • Full HD video capture
