Nikon Middle East & Africa: new Nikon DSLR camera will be announced in January 2014

Nikon Middle East & Africa is talking about a new DSLR camera to be announced on January 17th, 2014 on their Facebook page:

We have two options here: the Nikon D3300 (most likely) or a new D4s/D4x camera.

    And again Nikon’s beautifull marketing slogans leads to another dissapointment…

  • Abhinav

    Still enjoying D700 :)

    • Fritz Asuro

      But for how long are we gonna enjoy this camera? We need to upgrade at one point

      • Abhinav

        Well,as long as I’m able to shoot photos without problem.I won’t upgrade .I will rather buy lenses at this point of time :)

        • Fritz Asuro

          I still rely on my D700 in every assignment I have. But sometimes I just want to have some of the new features being introduced to new cameras such as -1 EV sensitivity, a slightly higher MP (16), higher ISO (200-12,800), e.g.

    Everything here depends upon the word “launch.” The D3300 will almost certainly still be announced at CES, which is well before January 17th, but it may be available for sale on the 17th ;~). If “launch” means “announce” then it’s possible that this is another DSLR.

    • Nikon Rumors

      In some parts of the world Nikon sometimes announces new products few weeks later (India comes to mind). maybe this is also the case with Middle East and Africa.

      • Thom Hogan

        Could be.

        But I’m with you, there’s something else brewing at Sendai, and that wouldn’t be a D3300. In fact, it seems like it has to be a fairly high volume camera if it’s disrupting the Df/D800 line.

        • Celtic

          This is a bit of a non sequitur, but I hope any new Nikon DSLR comes with a touch screen. I bought a SL1 and fell in love with the speed and convenience of touch technology, and don’t think I would be interested in another Nikon (I’ve had many) that comes without it.

  • Chris Joubert

    It seems that South Africa is not part of Africa anymore :-(.
    My guess is … the D300 replacement – but Nikon may not call it a D400.

  • Fedup

    Just more plastic crap for the consumer market. Where’s the new 16 or 300 f4 VR? The nineties are over nikon.

  • TeaBreak

    Hope there’ll never be a D400. Otherwise millions will buy it and two millions of them will be disapppointed that it doesn’t take better pictures than D7100. God please save me from this whinging all over the world’s photo fora.

    How do I calculate the dust spot size equivalent on DX sensors?

  • nirofo

    So you can afford a 750mm or 900mm f4 FX lens then, you must be loaded.

  • Andrew

    The question is what percentage of a FX sensor is occupied by a dust spot versus the percentage of a DX sensor that is occupied by the same dust spot. We will be forming an algebraic manipulation to obtain our answer. This calculation assumes that both sensors have the same pixel density, for example 24 MP (megapixel).

    The percentage (X) of a FX sensor’s surface area (F) that is occupied by spot with a surface area of (S) is:

    (F * X)/100 = S. Therefore X = (S * 100)/F.

    The percentage (Y) of a DX sensor’s surface area (D) that is occupied by the same spot with a surface area of (S) is:

    (D * Y)/100 = S. Therefore Y = (S * 100)/D.

    Notice that comparing the FX sensor’s area (Y) which is covered by the same spot as the DX
    sensor’s area (D), gets us the follow results as expressed above:

    (a) FX Sensor: X = (S * 100)/F.

    (b) DX Sensor: Y = (S * 100)/D

    Notice that the surface area’s (S) value of
    the spot is the same in equations (a) and (b) because the same size spot resides on both the FX and DX sensors.

    Now since the surface area (F) of
    the FX sensor in equation (a) is greater than the surface area (D) of the DX
    sensor in equation (b), the DX Sensor’s spot will cover a larger percentage (Y) of the DX sensor’s surface area. And the same sized spot will cover a smaller percentage (X) of the FX sensors surface area.

    So I have shown the calculation for the dust size equivalence of the same sized dust appearing on both FX and DX sensors in terms of the percentage of their respective surface areas covered by the same dust.

    I love you! Honestly!
