Nikon Let Slip About A New Beastie D3x
Breaking news Nikon have dropped a boo boo by letting slip their replacement for the D3 despite the D3 only being several months old. This happened with the new firmware release which includes options for a D3x in the new menus as part of the new firmware release.
Nikon are refusing to comment but I can confirm the new Nikon is going to be their flagship model not a replacement for the D3 and it is based around wait for it! 24.4 megapixel CMOS processor using the same EXPEED processor but this has been upgraded to a newer version EXPEED II and yes increased ISO performance over the existing D3 and increased frame rate at both 12 million pixels now going up to 13 frames per second and at the full resolution of 24.4 million pixels a class leading 9 frames per second now taking away Cannon's 1Ds Mark III performance benchmark due to image buffer memory also being upgraded to cope with the increase in resolution.
Another major snippet for you too is that DX lense users will be able to shoot at the old D3 pixel count of just over 12 million pixels with Nikons new range of lenses taking advantage of the full 24.4 million pixels.
Also speed increase in the 51 point autofocus provided by the Multi-CAM3500 chip and an increase in 14-bit analog-to-digital converter now 16-bit analog-to-digital convertor to work alongside the existing 16 bit image processor.
Also Nikon Active D Lighting has also been further refinded to increase capturing of high and low lights with a manual mode for setting user defined personal settings.
And finally Nikons CLS and Commander mode has also been tweaked more info on this to come.
