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 Capture NX-D Ver. 1 Released

Nikon NX-D

After several months of beta versions being available, Nikon has released a final version of Capture NX-D with support for RAW files from Nikon cameras, including the new D810.

The new version of Capture NX-D is a totally new version and does not rely on the underlying code of previous versions of Capture NX. As such, it no longer offers the Control Point adjustments that were prominent in older versions of Capture NX. Instead, it appears that Capture NX-D is a custom version of Silkypix.

Capture NX-D is available as a free download here on Nikon’s website.
