First set of rumored Nikon D7300 camera specifications

Here is the first set of rumored specifications for the Nikon D7300 DSLR camera:

  • 20MP sensor (same sensor from the D500)
  • 4K video
  • 51 points AF
  • SnapBridge

I do not have an announcement date yet.

    Surprised they’re using the same sensor. For sure thought they would use a 24mp, and gear it more towards image quality and less towards speed, action and low light. Seems like it’s just going to be a nuetered version of the d500.

    So lower resolution. If they give it d500 performance it may well cannibalize d500 sales. They should buy the sony sensor in the a6500 to give on sensor pdaf for better video autofocus. 24mp. 6fps. 24 raw buffer. Dual sd cards. 4k video. $1000 price tag.This would make it more apealing as a compliment to rather than alternative to the d500. They’d be smart to start churning out affordable video friendly lemses a la canon’s STM lenses.

    Seeing as how the D7300 would be an enthusiast/bordering on pro camera body, I could see them including 4K video to give them an instant edge over Canon’s offerings. But they could also easily skip adding 4K as to not cannibalize sales of the D500. If the D7300 gets 4K and no flippy screen, just how many people would be willing to spend $800 more for the D500 just for more AF points, higher-res flippy screen, LED buttons, and 3 more frames of continuous shooting and XQD?
    I also don’t see them shying away from the 24MP sensor, but who knows. I am betting the D7300 will have the same sensor that’s in the D5600.

      I think they’d be hard pressed to get people to buy it without 4K video. Even point and shoots are starting to get 4K video, and with cameras like GoPro and KeyMission having 4K support… it’d be nuts to keep it from an enthusiast line like the D7X00…

      As for the upgrade differences: I may have missed something, but doesn’t the D500 basically have non-stop shooting (thanks to the deep buffer capacity)? I doubt a D7300 would get that. A higher FPS and more focus points are valuable to folks shooting sports or wildlife, and you get the added flash connectivity with the D500 that you’re unlikely to get with a D7300.

      Will everyone see the value of spending $800 more? Nah. But that’s the reason we have choices. 😛

    4K video: yes, but lower resolution: no. I get that it’d be a side effect of using the same sensor as the D500, but… or at least use more of the sensor when doing video to up the quality.

    I’ve actually seriously considered just getting a D500. I just don’t like the idea of having two different memory card slots. I wish they’d either given us two SD card slots, or two different D500 models so you could choose (as they did with the D5). I’m sure XQD is great, but the way I use dual slots (basically mirror the shots to both cards) wouldn’t really provide any benefit.

    Hopefully, if nothing else, they give us the backlit hardware buttons like the D500 has. I could see those being convenient. 😛

    As a landscape shooter I do not like the idea of a dumbed down D500. I shoot the D7100 and I would prefer a decent upgrade for this camera that fits to landscape photography.
    If you have the top 2 crop sensor camera’s in Nikon line up both aimed at wildlife and action photography, where are the landscape photographers supposed to go to FF or move to another brand.
    If Nikon did buy Samsung, what about the beautiful 28 megapixel sensor from the NX1….. Time will tell who is right and who is wrong.

  • Reggie

    They rolled out out to match the resolution of the D5 because that’s the resolution that their new processing engine was designed for. Are you trolling? I’m done either way. Your constant personal insults combined with stunning levels of stupidity are just too much.

    If nikon made a set of small, fast primes for aps-c i would gladly move back to nikon.

  • Douglas Miles

    A (very knowledgeable) little bird told me that there will be no new DX models released by Nikon in 2017. If they were, they´d already be announced. Nikon will be rolling out one or two new FX models for their 100th anniversary with the announcement coming around their actual anniversary date (July 25).
    And I do hope he´s wrong but he usually isn´t.

  • Apiv Arnyik

    It looks like Nikon doesn’t have resources to develop new 24MP sensor with 4K video for D7300, so they decided to use the sensor from D500. That clearly degrade the picture quality compared to D7200 sensor in RAW mode. I’m buying camera to take pictures and the video is just secondary. I would rather have the sensor from D7200 and the autofocus system from D500 than the other way around.
