Yet another forum poster (this time AVForums) has claimed to have to goods on the much rumored Nikon D3x:
Went to dinner with Nikon this week.
The Nikon D3X is due in December 08.
Again, the 24MP number was tossed out there, which shouldn’t come as a surprise given that the D3x is expected to share the Sony A900′s sensor. Also, this is the second time of late that we’ve seen the December ’08 time frame pop up.
If this is true, Nikon continues its terrible record of keeping product development news a secret . . . or maybe it’s all part of their plan? The hype surround the past several Nikon DSLRs has been huge – and, generally speaking, Nikon delivered on the hype.
For past and present D3x rumors, keep your eyes on Photography Bay’s Nikon D3x Rumors page.
I’m starting to get a bad feeling regarding the credibility of this series of “leaks“. This third “ad” appearing on Nikon Rumors seems to be some edited photos of existing PC lenses (see comments on NR’s post for evidence). If that’s the case, then this whole series appears to be busted.
Now, let’s go back to the drawing board on Nikon MX and the BIG news.
Continue the conversation here.
Muller Photo, a French electronics seller, has posted product pages for the Sony A900 and Canon EOS 7D. While neither page divulges anything regarding the cameras’ specifications, Muller Photo lists prices for both cameras.
- Their price for the Canon EOS 7D is EUR 2990 (Source).
- And, their price for the the Sony A900 is EUR 2490 (Source).
Whether Muller Photo knows something the rest of us don’t remains to be seen. Muller Photo could just be capitalizing on some free press by listing these product pages.
Stay tuned to Photography Bay’s coverage of these cameras for latest as we lead up to Photokina 2008:
Canon EOS 7D (PB rumors page).
Sony A900 (PB rumors and news page).
Thom Hogan is feeling pretty confident on his information and has posted what are believed to be the actual specs of the new Nikon D90, which is expected to be announced shortly.
The Nikon D90 will feature the following specs:
- 12 megapixels
- 4.5 frames per second
- Live View with VIDEO (and audio) CAPTURE – yes, you read that right
- HDMI connection
- GPS connection
- Kit lens is an 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G DX VR (28-150mm equivalent on 35mm)
Clearly, Nikon is aiming to one-up the previous generation DSLRs with specs like these. The video capture will surely be a big selling point in the consumer market.
I’ll withhold my thoughts for know, but I want to know: What do you think about video capture in the Nikon D80 replacement?
According to Kamera & Bild, who claims to have notice of the press conference, Canon will be dropping the bombshell on August 26th. The only question is whether the new EOS will be the Canon 3D, 5D Mark II, 6D, 7D or some other model (or two).
Photography Bay will stay on top of the news and rumors to the bitter end and beyond. Stay tuned.
Photoclub Alpha has confirmed that Sony will be announcing an “exciting digital camera” on August 14.
They go on to say that they don’t think this will be the announcement for the Sony A900 and expect it to come closer to Photokina at “an international Sony Alpha press trip on Sept 9/10th to Edinburgh.”
No other word on what the “exciting digital camera” for August 14 could be. It’s just a little over a week though, so we’ll probably see some more leaks and hints. Stay tuned and we’ll keep you posted when more is known.
