Fake Nikon D400 pictures – body & box

I received those 2 pictures today with the text "Nikon D400 is new 24.4 MP body will be released on
November 20th."
The email was sent from outside the US (do not want to mention the country, just in case this turns out to be real).

The original EXIF data (included after each picture) indicates that those snapshots were taken with a camera phone Nokia N70 on July 25, 2008 (?). I doubt that a camera phone will have such a debt of field - take a look at  the text on the box. In addition the box says Mac OS 10.4.x, we are now up to 10.5.5. Adobe Photoshop CS2 was used as well?

I am 99% sure those are fake, but I will still publish them for the 1% chance that they may be real. If nothing else, I found those entertaining. They did a good job on the "4" - see the D40 label here.

    we can tell easily it was photoshopped because in the EXIF, it says “adobe photoshop, windows”… when it shows up in EXIF, it tell us someone fooled around with the text then re-save in photoshop application.

    • fotomik

      Oh come on, no you can’t. Even if you just open it in PS, resize it smaller so you can post it on your blog, and do nothing else, it will say “Photoshop” in the exif…

      Was this a joke? My sarcasm-sensor seems to be out of whack again.

  • http://nikonrumors.com/ [NR] admin

    yep – you are right here… I did mention this in the original post.

  • Kuri

    Can’t sleep, jet-lagged, but still clear enough to notice that IF this is a new camera, to be shipped soon, it is pretty damn odd that it has a Nikon Capture NX release campaign sticker on it and not a Capture NX2 sticker…

    Also, the “D400″ Box says ‘made in thailand. Highly unlikely for a new ‘flagship’ camera. Also I seriously doubt it would be launched as a D400.
    If anything, It’d be a D4. Made in Japan. With NX2.

    Photoshopping is easy. Getting the details right a bit harder….

    • http://nikonrumors.com/ [NR] admin

      yes, more proof that this one is busted.

  • rthomas

    The “4″ on the “D400″ box is slightly crooked – compare the vertical lines in the numbers and the “4″ seems to lean slightly, something that you don’t see on the D40 box (if this was due to perspective, the two zeroes would also show a lean but they don’t). Also, the font spacing between the “D” and the “4″ is off.

    I happen to have my D300 box right here, and after blowing this picture up in Photoshop, I discovered that both box labels are identical; the list of accessories is the same, and all the information matches, right down to a code, “YR4243″ on the lower right of the label, and even the UPC code. Unfortunately the bar code numbers are cropped – how convenient.

    I call this a hoax.

    Hello,

    Just to add to the problems: the angle of the top and base of the “4″ hasn’t been perspective shifted when he created the fake. It’s too straight for a box shot at an angle.

    Definitely a fake. If you open up the photo in an editor and zoom in on the ’4′ you can see that the background is inconsistent. This, along with what others have noticed, such as the ’4′ being at the wrong angle, it’s an obvious fake.

  • Crabby

    A DX sensor with current technology and this many pixels would make for a DSLR approaching many of the issues that P&S cameras have, poor performance at ISO’s over 400 and diffraction issues with even modestly stopped-down lenses. This pixel count may soon arrive on a D4 with an FX sensor, however.

    I think if real D400 is published, it will come with Nikon Capture NX2

  • Nicolas

    And it includes “Release Campaign” for Capture NX?!
    Nikon is currently pushing the use of Capture NX2….

    Sorry for the believers

    haha, very nice :))

  • kamyar

    hello jullian
    khareto migam!!!!
    tank you :-)

  • Archer

    From the serial number printed on the side of the box, can someone find out what model Nikon is supposed to be inside? I am sure someone has the serial number database for Nikon cameras that could tell if it belonged to D300 or ?

  • me

    nikon have to release a new body or do you think they will continue to losso market while canon is getting more and more buyers dude the 5d mkII

    • yrsued

      I’m no Fanboy, but both companies are loosing money!! Canon will start charging money, serious Money for the Formerly Free CPS Service!! Wonder why??? Loosing Money!! Nikon lost a lot of market Share to Canon in the days of the D2H, Sports Photographer wanted more, canon gave them the MKII and the MKIIn. Now Canon had a major fumble with the MKIII, then Nikon came out with the D3, without a major glitch, Canon lost a ton of market by their own fumble and Nikons Touchdown (To remain with Football analogies)

  • torax

    Why would the flagship camera be named d400. sounds more like consumer FX body latest and greatest in DX field.

  • Nicko

    I’m just a little bit curious what will happen when all the names are taken? It will take some time but sooner or later it will happen.

    D40, D50, D60, D70. D80, D90 are all taken, only D10, D20 and D30 left here.

    D100, D200, D300. D700 so in this category there is more names available.

    D1, D2, D3 many names here left…

    I just wonder what nikon will do in a couple of years when there is no names left?? Canon is a little bit smart with their MkI, MkII and so further but that can be annoying when it gets to MkVII or something like that after a while…

  • Nattapong

    It’s fake for sure, look at Capture NX sticker.
    It seem like NX1 sticker that push on D300 box(first lot)
    But now Nikon already luanch NX2.
