Nikon D400 Book on Amazon.de

Amazon Germany has a listing for a Nikon D400 book that is a hardcover book and appears to be set for release in July 2009.  A search for the ISBN numbers noted on the product page reveals nothing more than forum posts and blog chatter about this particular listing on Amazon.de.

Here is the link to the product page while it’s still up (copy and paste into your browser):

While the Nikon D400 clearly remains a rumor for now, this adds a little fuel to the fire that’s been building for a few months.  If you recall, there was a similar “leak” of a book on Amazon.com for the Canon 5D Mark II prior to its release way back in May 2008. Remember this.  After the leak, the author issued a statement vehemently denying any legitimacy to the rumor.  We all know how that one turned out.

For the latest news and rumors on the D400, stay tuned to Photography Bay’s Nikon D400 page.

Nikon D700x / D800 Rumor Update

PMA 2009 rumors sure are heating up, as we get more “reliable” rumors of a Nikon D700x / D800 release.  Presumably, this will be the rumored high-megapixel junior sibling to the D3x – in the same way the D700 relates to the D3.

Here’s one site’s purportedly reliable info on the new D700x / D800:

An extremely reliable source for RYC has confirmed a camera being field tested by Nikon to directly compete against the Canon 5D MKII. This camera will be announced at the PMA show this year.
