Nikon’s Next DSLR a Full Frame ‘Action’ Camera?

Nikon-D4S-I-am-coming-soon

The recently rumored Nikon full frame DSLR that’s expected in September may very well be a full frame sports shooter, complete with high frame rates and a lower resolution.

New rumors suggest that it won’t be a replacement for the current Nikon D610 and won’t be part of the D6xx line. Instead, the camera will be marketed as an “action” camera. As such, we would expect a better AF system than what we see in the D610 – and more along the lines of the 51-point AF system in the D810 and D4s.

A higher frame rate is also expected for an “action” camera – possibly in photos and video. Of course, if these rumors pan out, we’ll know more very soon.

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.

Check out the list of rumored D800s specs below. [Read more...]
