    D800???

    Advertise here

    I just saw this rumours from nikon rumors........


    Bryan Peterson posted this on his Facebook page, claiming to be from a reliable French “inside” friend:
    “Two new Nikon’s-The D800, at 20MP, full frame, retail price of $2495.00 and Nikon DX-4, full frame at 19-20MP with a retail price of $5,000.00 and both will be announced by late September 2011!”
    I am not sure what to think about this rumors – 19-20MP is a rather unusual size for a full frame sensor and the $5000 price tag of the D4 (I assume the DX-4 was a typo) means that it will be cheaper than the D3s (currently priced at $5200). I expect the new full frame DSLRs from Nikon to have a higher price tag than their predecessors.

    New upgraded model is as certain as death. Just that we do not know when will it happen. I will cross the bridge when I come to it.

    I wonder what is the success hit rate of Nikonrumours, almost 98 percent of the time they never predict it right. The Site's a sham

    Why bother about rumour, when nikon announce, it will take some time to reach the shell. If not this year, then next year. This is part of the game for who want to wait.

    If this to be believed it's a D700x rather than the D800.

    I believe they're still milking their old FX line up, once the announcement comes, it'll be chaos, more and more used d700/d3s bodies will flood the surplus market, nikon would eventually lower down the prices, thus the delaying tactic. From a marketing standpoint, it's better for them, but horrible for those potential Fx buyers , nobody likes waiting.

    D400 will never be an FX camera. they need a pro DX camera line up.

    sushimonster,
    you might not need a 20 to 30mp camera but there are professionals who need them. if you are limiting your photographs to 4R prints and facebook and flickrs, a D3100 is more than good enough. heck, get the samsung galaxy s II.

    Yup, those who don't need, they can always choose lower megapixel through the options. But there's no way to choose more MP if it comes with less.

    A 30 mp camera would require a more refined shooting technique, i'm not all to keen on that, yes it's good for cropping and large size printing but the rate of getting a keeper compared to a 16mp sensor will be greatly reduced. This megapixel race is pure BS. Nikon should not exceed the 24mp limit which is already huge for sanitys sake.

    a 16mp DX sensor is already equivalent to around a 30mp FX sensor in terms of pixel pitch.
    so having the new FX model with 30mp sounds like its progressing along the same path.

    Was told by one of the Nikon @ BTS staff that the D800 will be launched somewhere in December this year. The price should be around the initial retail price of D700. And I couldn't believe my ears when he said it's gonna be a whooping 30MP!

    Well, I don't want to put high hope. Just wait and see

    I might go for this, 30MP or not (but I hope not)...provided I can always scale down the shooting resolution... On a DX mode, it's still a staggeringly high 14-15MP, now how would the pic quality would compare against the D7K, a 30MP FX body would basically Mean it will be very very capable with crop mode, so no lenses would be put to waste here, DX lenses can still rock , and the best of all, no more back up crop body haha,

    Now I wonder, if Nikon is smart enough to recycle those old 12MP Fx sensors ( I believe they have done this before, NIKON D3000 = D60) put it in a D90-ish body, start a revolution by making a sub- 1500 USD FX body, the world's first-ever "Amateur Full-frame camera" ...wow, I can only dream. Lol
