Nikon Coolpix P7100 and AW100

The Nikon Coolpix P7100 and AW100 surfaced this afternoon on Nikon Rumors a little while before their anticipated unveiling later tonight/tomorrow.

The P7100 looks to be the replacement for the rather sluggish Coolpix P7000.  However, Nikon may very well have boosted the performance of the P7100 so that its a viable option for those who want an advanced compact.

The P7100 is rumored to included the following specifications: [Read more...]

Nikon Mirrorless Camera Image Leaks Out

Nikon Mirrorless Camera X810

It looks like Nikon’s compact mirrorless camera has leaked its lens mount and sensor mount onto the web.  Based on this image, it’s clearly not an F-mount camera – so you won’t be using existing Nikon lenses on this camera (without an adapter, that is).  Additionally, the sensor looks smaller than APS-C format.

Nikon D800 Before Christmas?

A tipster has sent in some info on the rumored Nikon D800 that he purports originates with a “very reliable source.”  According to the tipster, Nikon will not be revising the D700 for a “S” model, as was the case with the D300 and D3.

Instead, Nikon will release a completely new model to replace the D700 – the D800.

Rumored Nikon D800 features from the tipster include the following:

1) Video mode 1080p video recording (full HD)
2) High resolution 24.5 MP.
3) High frame rate: 7 fps without battery grip (similar to D300s)
4) 51-area Nikon Multi-CAM 3500FX (same technology as D3X)

He also tells me that the D800 will launch before Christmas.

I can’t confirm the veracity of this info or the reliability of the tipster yet.  I am reaching out to him for further details in hopes to substantiate these rumors. Keep in mind that these D700x/D800 rumors have been rattling around for over a year now.

Stay tuned for updates on the D800 or whatever else Nikon decides to throw at us.

Nikon D400 Rumor Updates

One of the biggest rumors floating around right now is the Nikon D400.  Rumors of this camera have been swirling since late 2008.  Rumor has it that the Nikon D400 specs will be 14.8MP, cover ISO 50-25,600, and can shoot HD video.  Last month, the rumors really picked up, particularly in light of a Nikon D400 book that surfaced on a variety of sites, including

Nikon Rumors has been staying on top of the Nikon D400 buzz and uncovered the same book on the publisher’s website.  Also, a NR reader called up the author of the book and said, “He has a NDA with Nikon, that was clear to me, but his work on the book is real so we may see a D400 in summer.”

Stay tuned for the latest word on whether or not the Nikon D400 will come to fruition.  Also, you would do well to check out the Nikon Rumors site at if you are into the Nikon scene.
