- A new Software suite, something in between NikonView and Capture NX2, in between Photoshop and Photoshop Elements. An advanced suite, that will take into account your 'program' setting on your Coolpix or low-end DSLR when processing pictures - something that so far no one does... It notices the camera presets and post-processes accordingly, giving you superior end results, making your results look more 'pro'. This may be related to this recent and official Nikon news.
- There may be an OEM Nikon badged HP printer too, but no more than A3 size. Again, going back to old news: remember the Nikon and HP press release from 3 weeks ago? How about Mr. Rockwell prediction about a new printer?
- Definitely no D3x, MX or Nikon digital rangefinder yet.
I also wanted to emphasize on the importance of some of the posts in this blog - they may not be "real rumors" but they are definitely pieces of the puzzle and should not be ignored. The above links are a good example of that. Sometimes I get criticized that I am posting BS news, but sooner or later it all makes sense. And to prove my point I will give you another one: remember the Microsoft and Nikon patent cross-license agreement? Well the Nikon D90 video output is in AVI format. I have an old Nikon p&s that outputs MOV videos. Why did Nikon switch to Microsoft format? And to put some oil into the fire: the Apple store doesn't sell any Nikon products - only Canons. Oh, and one more thing - Nikon provides only Windows based software for the RAW files of the new Nikon P6000 (which btw now sells for $449).
