    Link is not working – i guess it´s not .com

    • Yes, sorry – it’s caused by an amazon plugin that use in wordpress. I can fix it tonight.

  • TheDarkKnight

    Yes it’s

    Go there and search for it. With changing the “.com” in the link above it works for me.

  • Daf

    If you click the author’s names – seems he’s done a fair few books, so I think it’s legit.

    Book publishers though can work months / years ahead and so although it’s likely a sign that a D400 is a certainty – it’s not a sign of it coming soon.

    • Daf

      Oh – forgot the July 09 date.

  • WaitingfortheD400

    Very good finding! There never will be a book about a camera that hasn’t been released yet. So this is definitely a sign of a D400 coming in the first half of 2009.

    This Michael Gradias seems to be German’s Thom Hogan:

  • Thank you

    Oh i hope is good read! Is d400 real or no?

  • Michael

    Didn’t the same thing happen with the D90? I know it did for one but I cannot remember for sure which one.

  • James

    Will it be full-frame?

  • Pablov

    the link works fine.

    BTW I really don’t think it is FX (full frame) camera, it wouldn’t make sense because it would mean that the D300 is the last DX Pro camera.

    I guess Nikon will continue some DX Pro camera, possibly D400, D500 and maybe D600

    • Daf


      I think they’ll keep a pro / Semi-pro camera for a good few years yet.

      • Daf

        oops – meant “DX” semi-pro cam

  • blabla

    Any Idea if this is the real deal?

      This looks more plausible to me than anything else that’s been posted here yet.

    Who cares about new cameras or books or any of that $hit….We need update lenses and more lens choices NIKON!!!!

  • I wait… only DX… only 16mpx or higer – if another, then I sad

  • ken rocky

    Lenses .. . Lenses ….

    Nikon where are the lenses? . I’m patient but not too much…

  • Nikkoryan

    Here here! L E N S E S, paaleeeze, Nikon. The D300, D700, D3, and D3x are fine for a while. I am tired of too few lens choices compared to drastically more Canon lenses. I just can’t get the arsenal I need and I continue to have to purchase old lenses (D types like 50 mm f/1.4D (I know, but the new one is not avail yet), 17-35 f/2.8D). And increase manufacturing supply, get them out faster.

    D400 will be DX. There is simply no other logical choice for Nikon.

    this def looks real. I did some researching on the ISBN, and yep, it does actually match the publisher and all the math based on this german site (translated to english).

    I went to the publishers site to confirm with other titles that this ISBN matches others and it did, to my surprise, not only that but they do have it in their catalog.

    I call this real.. D400 is here this summer!!

    • Juergen

      The ISBN numbers are valid, the short one and the long one, plus the long one is the correct conversion of the short one.
      Also a well known and serious publisher like “Markt & Technik” is highly unlikely to buy an ISBN number just for fun.

    • Jon Paul

      Good spot, caz. Well researched.

  • Zoetmb

    First of all, publishers do not “buy” ISBN numbers. They pay only for a prefix based on the number of books they intend to publish over X years. (Shorter prefixes permit more titles, longer prefixes permit fewer.) They then assign their own numbers to the prefix and add the 978 to the front and a check digit to the end.

    Secondly, just like we eventually expect a D400, so does the publisher. But that doesn’t mean the publisher has any inside info as to the reality of the camera or the date. It’s simply that, “we think it’s coming out; we think it might be in July, so let’s put in on the schedule.” If it doesn’t come out enough in advance, they’ll delay the pub date and if it doesn’t come out at all, they’ll cancel. Assigning an ISBN and a title means absolutely nothing. It could just be a scam to get hits on their own website.

    If you look at other books about Nikon bodies, they come out many months after the camera has been released. The optimists among us will use that to say, “well the camera must be coming out in the next month then.” But the pessimists will use that to say that the publisher is dreaming.

    Examples (U.S. – Amazon):
    Even though these bodies have been out for many months, notice the publication dates of the following:
    Nikon D90: The Expanded Guide Jun 7, 2009
    Mastering the Nikon D700 May 28, 2009
    Nikon D90: From Snapshots to Great Shots Jun 20, 2009
    Nikon D700: The Expanded Guide Apr 30, 2009
    David Busch’s Nikon D90 Guide to Digital SLR Photography Apr 14, 2009

    One correction: in Europe, publishers do not even pay for the ISBN prefix. They only do that in the U.S.

    yayy… i cant wait for the D400!

  • Anonymous

    uh. if they “pay” that means they buy it, just cause its in bulk don’t mean they didn’t “buy it”.. once they assign it, they can’t reassign it.. google little more…

    i doubt the publisher would put 352 pages – 1 CD, 4-color, print photos
    if they had no idea what the heck they’re publishing about.. i never seen vaporbooks on amazon. find me one…

    and about the publication dates, uhh.. what, a publisher can’t publish books way after release of a camera????

    i call it real.

  • caz

    ohh and one more thing, if you click on the authors name on the publisher site, notice the publish date of 9/2008 for the d700 book. D700 was announced 7/2008… and they do say “around 29/7/2009″… i say PMA announcement…

  • I agree – Nikon D400 will be announced at PMA. The question is what else will be announced. They cleared the Coolpix cameras out of the way, so we should see the good stuff.

  • pretty boi

    I really hope Nikon will release some more prime lens…their camera line up is fine…but their lens need some update pronto
