It’s been quite some time since we have heard anything about the Nikon D400. When the D7100 launched, there was a lot of concern that the D400 wouldn’t show up to replace the D300s after all, and that Nikon would allow the D7100 to remain atop the DX camera lineup and the D600 would sit at the low end of the FX line as a gap-bridger to the D800.
New rumors suggest that the D400 was, in fact, pushed back in Nikon’s DSLR line-up in order to allow the D7100 to shine for awhile on its own. Of course, the D7100 is an excellent camera in its own right; however, it is still missing some things that you expect on a proper D300s replacement. [Read more…]
Nikon Europe has responded directly to questions regarding the D7100’s placement in its DSLR lineup. [Read more…]
Nikon’s APS-C fixed lens mirrorless camera may arrive in the next couple of weeks. Whether it is a response to the outcries over the small 1-inch sensor in its mirrorless 1 Series cameras, or simply jumping on the fixed-lens, big sensor retro bandwagon, is unknown… But the camera is rumored to be on its way.

Nikon has press conferences scheduled this week, which likely means some new camera announcements and the most likely camera being tossed around right now is a replacement for the Nikon D7000. Rumored specs on the new camera include a 24MP sensor, ISO 100-6400 and a form factor similar to its full frame brother – the D600.
Other rumors point to the possibility of a advanced Nikon Coolpix point and shoot camera – perhaps a Nikon P310 replacement that supports RAW image capture and WU-1a support for wireless image transfer. Or, a point and shoot with a 1″ sensor that would presumably compete head-to-head with the Sony RX100.
Whatever is coming, we should have official word and complete details in the next couple of days. Stay tuned.

After an earlier tease of a Nikon D4x rumor last month, it appears that the rumor is now building that a flagship D4x will be unveiled in 2013. Given the persisting rumors of a D7000 replacement, this makes two killer Nikon DSLRs rumored for this year.
Nikon D4x Key Rumored Points
- Same body as the Nikon D4
- 36 MP sensor without AA filter, designed and made by Nikon, with some new improvements (moire in-camera reduction)
- 6 fps (11 fps is the maximum possible fps with the current shutter)
- Few video improvements
- Price should be few hundred dollars above the existing Nikon D4 (currently listed for $5996.95).
- Announcement expected in fall of 2013
