Just as I was ready to dismiss the previous rumor of a 36MP-shooting Nikon D800, Nikon Rumors heard from its sources and confirmed this replacement for the still-hard-to-find Nikon D700 is (99%) real and will be unveiled in the next 30-60 days.
Here’s a longer look at the machine-translated spec list: [click to continue…]
Japanese camera blog, Digicame-info, posted a rumor of an October announcement for the Nikon D800. [click to continue…]
In what could be the biggest camera launch of the year, one of Nikon Rumors’ sources has tipped the launch of the Nikon D4 and D400 for August.
Given the coming Sony A77 with a 24MP sensor, it is most likely that the D400 will sport the same 24MP APS-C sensor but labeled with the ubiquitous “Developed by Nikon” asterisk seen in recent Nikon pro-DSLR specs. The D400 will almost certainly feature 1080p video to follow the recent trend of Nikon DSLRs. Hopefully, the D400 will avoid the cumbersome aperture adjustment problem that made the Nikon D7000 more frustrating for video capture.
As for the Nikon D4, [click to continue…]
An invitation for a Taiwan press event all but confirms a June 30 announcement for the new Olympus PEN models, which appear to include the E-PM1, E-PL3 and E-P3. [click to continue…]
With the Canon 5D Mark II pushing its 3-year anniversary, it’s no wonder that rumors of a successor to the throne are floating around. The Canon 3D rumors, however, seem to crop up every so often to no avail. [click to continue…]
Just got a tip about a new DSLR that will be announced on September 8. The source doesn’t provide a model; however, there is an indication that it will be a prosumer or low-end pro model.
This has been a rather busy season for DSLRs, particularly over the past couple of weeks. I sure don’t see much room for too many more entry-level DSLRs; however, camera manufacturers have been pretty thin on releasing pro-grade gear so far. I suppose that the Canon 60D fits into the prosumer category, but that’s about it.
We’re all still waiting and hoping for a number of pro and prosumer models . . . Canon 1Ds Mark IV, Sony A700 replacement, Nikon D90 or D700 replacement and pretty much anything from Pentax. With this in mind, we could still be rather busy in the lead up to Photokina 2010.
Stay tuned for the latest. And, if you have any additional info on upcoming gear, feel free to drop me a tip via the contact form.
