New year, new rumor: Nikon D900 (updated)

Pin It

Updates:

  • Nikon bag for D900 (this bag is made by Nikon and both D90 and D900 are listed as compatible):

  • Nikon D900 battery initially I thought this is a typo, since the same battery is used by the D90, but if you look at the bottom of the page they have two separate categories for D90 and D900. Note also that the "D900" is present multiple times on that page - difficult to make multiple typos at the same time:

  • Amazon is buying "Nikon D900" ads: if you google "Nikon D900" you will see Amazon advertising for Nikon D900 and the link goes to the Nikon D700 product page (conspiracy theory: Amazon owns dpreview; dpreview always get cameras in advance; Amazon is always the first one to offer pre-order options when a new camera is announced (usually 2-3 hours after the official announcement - for comparison it takes B&H and Adorama few days to update their pages). It is hard for me to believe that someone at Amazon is waiting for the announcement and then creates all the products entries – they must be created in advance, which means that Amazon probably knows what is coming):

Original post:

Bower Inc. produces a variety of photo related accessories, sold mainly by B&H and Adorama. In their online catalog (pdf file), Bower lists the battery grip XBGND700 as compatible with Nikon D300/D700/D900:

Same is the description on their website - you can see that this is not a D90 with an extra "0" typo, since the D90 grip is a different model:

B&H lists this product as compatible only with D300 and D700 which could mean that the description was updated recently:

Now, I do believe that certain manufacturers get a heads up from Nikon about upcoming products in order to adjust their product line. If this is the case here remains to be seen.

    Hmm.. somehow I doubt if a company like bower would get much in the way of warning. I do like the amazon conspiracy theory.

    This whole story makes a D900 as a D700 even more plausible. If the new cam shares the grip I doubt if it will be a spectacularly different camera, more like the d300s is to the d300.
