There are a handful of forum posters that actually have access to inside information. These elect few don’t tout their credentials. No, they quietly state facts, which are proven by the later release of new camera models.
Yesterday, one of those forum posters spoke to the coming Nikon full frame pro body:
A high pixel count pro body in 135 format, about 45 days to go for more details. :-)
That’s it. That’s all he needed to say. Jeff-c is generally on the money with leaks, predictions or whatever you want to call it.
Better pinch those pennies, because Santa Claus is coming to town and he’s bringing a Nikon D3x or D4 along with him.
Seems Nikon’s BIG news may be out of the bag rather soon – say, October 22? According to Zoom, Nikon has given notice of a press release for October 22, which will take place in Copenhagen, Denmark. If true, I imagine we’ll be hearing more from other parts of the world soon.
Nikon’s product secrecy has a terrible track record lately and I wouldn’t be surprise to see this next product leak out in the next few days.
It’s been a while since we’ve heard any rumblings about a D3x. I was beginning to think those rumors had died off in favor of the Nikon MX format rumors.
Not so fast, says a Nikon USA’s PR department through what I’m sure is solid 3rd hand info at DPR forums…
- 24.4 megapixels
- 9 frames per second
- Full frame w/ crop capabilities
- $6499.99 USD
- same body as D3
- December announcement/release?
Thom Hogan added to the discussion:
And people wonder why Nikon offers a doubled buffer for the D3 ;~)
I will note, however, that several prior rumors from as old as last October said the D3x was 12 months away. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see how merry Christmas turns out to be for all you Nikon shooters.
For past and present D3x rumors, keep your eyes on Photography Bay’s Nikon D3x Rumors page.
