Again, please don't ask me if the technical specs that I mentioned are true or not. Please don't ask where I got that information. As I said, you don't have to trust 100% what I said in this forum. Just wait for Nikon's official announcement for the D700 replacement model.
D800 By The End Of 2009?!(66 posts) (14 voices)
Well if you don't want anyone to ask then why do you keep posting specs? I'm not asking you to reveal which of your friend's uncles told you but I just want to understand that what your posting is legit info from a legit source and not a best guess or wish list.
I'd already heard a Feb 2010 announcement could happen for a D400,"cheap" full frame or a D800, supposedly maybe. I'm not trying to put you in a police line up. I want to believe you.
Well you have the right not to agree with me about the technical spec I posted in this forum. As I said those technical spec. are just speculation or you can call it rumor if you like from some sources which I know.
Just some tips, it is very unlikely there will be D400 or "cheap Nikon FX SLR". This is definitely not true at all which I have never heard it from my friends' friend.
Just for sharing: I just found it on internet.
Please check above website that mentioned about Nikon D800 but I found it is totally nonsense!!!!!
Below is my personal comment with bracket on his spec:
* Nikon FX CMOS image sensor with 14.3 effective megapixels (Cannot be that low! it is better to keep 12.1)
* Sensitivity range ISO 50 to 12800 (OK, may be better)
* EXPEED II digital image processing concept (OK)
* Nikon’s original Scene Recognition system (OK, may be)
* 51 point autofocus system (OK)
* High-speed continuous shooting of max. 12 frames per second (I don't think so! it is 7fps)
* Liveview mode (Of couse with Live view focusing)
* Intedrated Wireless Transmitter realizes connection of cameras with a PC/MAC, autosync compatible (OK, may be)
* Tripple Card slot, Double CF card slot and SD card slot (OK)
* Quick response with approx. 0.10 sec. startup time and 20 ms Shutter release time log (OK, may be)
* Viewfinder with 100% frame coverage (No way 100%, 98% maybe)
* High-definition LCD monitor with tempered glass (should be the std 3" TFT LCD , nothing fancy)
* Active D-Lighting optimizes tone reproduction in both shadows and highlights(OK)
Alan you do realize that all of that information is over a year old? The D700 hadn't even been announced yet when that article was written! It's obviously a joke.
This guy stole my information about the D800!
He's quoting the information from Eric over at Photography Bay who I assume you emailed the info to?
Some specs, he got it right I guess....
No I have never email to anyone about D800, all my information exclusively in this forum.
I'm sorry alan but I find it really hard to believe you when all you do is keep linking to very old information. Did you not know about the D700s/x/800 rumors before? It seems like perhaps your source simply told you what has already been floating around even before the D700/ D3X were announced. Do you have a background in photography? What I mean is are you a photographer? Whether you do it as a hobby or professionally.
Well then that's one major coincidence that you happen to join here and make make a list of specs for a future camera and then the next day those exact specs word for word show up on another website. You even linked to that website the day you started all of this!
As I told before on this forum that I don't work Nikon. And I'm not a Canon user just want to make funs of Nikonian. Well I have both Canon 20D and Nikon D200 SLR. Yes, of course I know those old links. But my point is that some information in the old link might happen to the new D800. I'm not a pro but just for hobby.
So which do you like more the 20D or the D200? ;^) I've been a canon user and Nikon user and Pentax and Sony and Fuji and well you get the point. None of them come close to Nikon in my opinion.
Yes, I totally agreed with you. I quit Canon because I found Nikon is more superior. In fact I sold off my 20D several years ago.
I don't bother to upgrade D300 or even D300s because I want to get a budget super value full frame. However D700 lacks of many important features. I can't turn back to Canon to get the super value & super excellent 5D MK II since I had invested so much on those lenses!
This is reason why I put so much hope on this replacement model. So happen I have some "N" insider information about this replacement model. In fact my friends' friends who is a design engineer for "N" in Japan. I heard that they already have several working units in their labs. Sorry I could not disclose more.
EDIT - won't feed the troll, sorry.
D800 Nikon, it is great!!!
