Nikon D7000 replacement before April, more Coolpix cameras including a P310 replacement

Nikon-D7000-P310-replacement

I received some new information from a good source:

  • The Nikon D7000 replacement should be announced before April, 2013 with a 24MP sensor, 100-6400 ISO range and a form factor similar to the D600, but in a smaller body.
  • Nikon will announce more new Coolpix cameras, including a P310 replacement that will add RAW files and WU-1a support for wireless transfer. The P310 was announced in January 2012 and currently sells for a little over $200. In addition to the P7700, the P310 is the only hope for a "serious" Nikon Coolpix compact camera.

      Do some research before posting such a comment.

      That’s because Nikon doesn’t over-claim about the usable ISO range at the top-end and Canon does ;-)

    I am hesitant to buy D7000 now. How much you reckon the price tag will be for this replacement ? close to the D300 ?

  • stormwatch

    Ok, let me ask you something D300s owners. I had one of the first D90′s in 2008. who were shipped in Europe, and I loved the every cell of it. Today when I look to those pictures I’m always finding myself again and again surprised how actually that machine is better than a D300(s), except speed and the dedicated buttons everything else was and always will be on the D90 side. I was waiting (as the other tens of thousands happy users) for the D90 replacement which never came, so explain me why would ever be logical that D300(s) replacement would come instead of D90? Not to mention that D90 never loosed any of it’s values after 2 years of use, I managed to sell all the gear actually at a higher price than I bought it originally. That is a sign of a superb product.

      D90 was replaced in every way, shape, and form by the D7000 which is a better camera from top to bottom, as is the Nikon way ;-) Not arguing, the D90 was a great product and best seller. But the D7000 was a better product and better value. And so will be the D7200 to follow.
      Best Regards

        Are you kidding me?

    A positive move to include Raw in the P310 replacement. Providing good compact cameras as carry-everywhere-cameras for serious/enthusiast photographers who want control is great.

    I will believe what Canon says about the 7D MKII not being released once it hits New Years Day 2014. Until then I won’t believe it, plus there is a void because of the discontinued D300/s models. So there definitely has to be something to replace it. Maybe the D7k successor will merge the two (51 AF, 10-12 fps, 24mp, etc).

    So the new Nikon P 320 (?) will have the same small sensor…

    Oh come on, no fuckin 24mp sensors anymore Nikon! NO ONE wants them in “serious” aps-c cameras… a new/improved 16mp sensor that is as good as the fuji aps-c sensor in a pro grade body with the D800/D700 AF System and 6fps – that´s what i want!!

  • Jill Binoche

    I am anxious to see the D7000 replacement …

    it’s time to move to canon i wanted d400 but it looks like we may never get one so by nikon !!

    I’m getting fed up with the lack of a reasonably priced sports camera in the Nikon line. Nikon’s reputation in the digital market was built on fast, low light cameras; although my current D600 makes fabulous images I would trade 8 frames a second for 8 MP of image size any day. And no, I don’t want a 3-year-old sensor on a D300 with battery pack. I also don’t want to bury a 3~5K body in mud next to a horse race just to get the speed of a D3/D4. I think Nikon is truly neglecting their serious armature sports shooters and I honestly have nowhere to turn if I want to keep my Nikon glass.

  • Neopulse

    FFS stop bitching about next best thing to bitch about. The D7000 successor was for awhile on threads and now it’s well on it’s way and for certain the D300′s will be also.

    • KnightPhoto

      Good points. I think Ric should establish a new drinking game, anytime someone mentions D300S Replacement/D400/D8000 etc., we should have a Drink! ;-)
      The old drinking game is really starting to die off and I’m getting thirsty around here!

    The roadmap for DX can be seen in the LENSES. The DX lens line is dying on the vine, with few releases and no updates recently. If DX was a ongoing product line, Nikon would be releasing new DX lenses and updates to existing models. Since Nikon is are not committing any engineering to advanced DX lenses, one must assume that DX is in it’s twilight. Spend your money accordingly.

  • DaveyJ

    Well maybe the D7100 announcement in several days now. I am also hoping for a 80-400VR revision soon as well! I won’t though be buying many DX lens though as I feel my FX capable lens work very well on both FX and DX Nikons. I looked very close at the D600 but there were just too many turn offs for me personally. I think the D600 had too many engineering and design corners cut. And the frequently complained about problems were TNTC (too numerous to count).
