Nikon invitation for press conference on September 12th in Thailand

Nikon-D750-press-invitation
Nikon already sent out press invitation in Thailand for an event on September 12th at 10:30 (Bangkok time). For US readers, the official announcement will be around midnight on September 10th or 11th. I am surprised that Nikon decided to do the press event on a Friday (maybe this is a post-announcement event).

    Bad translation. He didn’t say there’s D750 at all.

  • ba

    Not quite an accurate translation… More like “My job is simple, I play with the D810 while dreaming about the D750”

    • ok, will remove this part

    • One More Thought

      Thank you! Sometimes Google translation doesn’t get the nuances of a language correct. Overtime of course machine translation will get better and better…

      • sorry about that, I removed that part from my post

        • br0xibear

          Oops…damn Google translate, lol.

        • Aldo

          very well… but next time.. there will be blood

  • Martin K

    I am also dreaming about the D750!!

  • Stilllearning

    I think they are being sensitive to the USA thus why the Friday announcement. Also isn’t 13 a lucky number in Japan?

  • Peter O

    Ooooh, I wonder what it could be? I bet it’s something new and exciting – perhaps a camera? Nikon is always full of surprises. They sure are on the cutting edge of marketing – an announcement about something no one knows about. 🙂

    • Ian Lindo

      They’re creating hype like they did with the Df. Now lets hope its nowhere near as disappointing.

  • ww

    So this means, i should not refresh this page every hour till 12th Sept? =)

    • Oh, I’m going to anyway! There is always one leak. Worse, I’m pretty sure I won’t buy this as I already have a. D810 and Df.

      • Aldo

        ” I’m pretty sure I won’t buy this as I already have a. D810 and Df ”

        When you don’t wanna take both cameras to a shoot… you can always just take the d750 😛

    • Charlie

      That is why we use RSS =)

  • sandy

    3 or 4 days. Nikon is keeping this pretty close to the vest, with no real concensus on what this thing actually is, with no images. Thats a bit unusual.

    • Eric Calabros

      Apple should take note

  • Sleepy

    They picked a bad week to announce. Most tech stories will be about the new iPhone and/or iWearable.

    • Spy Black

      Anybody who cares about Nikon products aren’t going to be distracted by the iNonevent.

      • mikeswitz

        If they care about new Apple releases and new Nikon releases they probably handle news from both events at the same time.

      • Sleepy

        Do you think the press will write more stories about the Nikon D750 over the Apple iPhone? Weird?

        • mikeswitz

          the main stream electronic press rarely writes about any camera other than the ones in smartphones.

        • Charlie

          Do you think that the Nikon D750 has as big of a market as the Apple iPhone? Weird?

        • Spy Black

          I’m not talking about press, I’m talking about people interested in Nikon products.

  • verypong

  • Ian Lindo

    I’ll be standing by with my credit card in hand. Once I see the D750, I hope I’ll finally be able to decide between it and the D810. The most likely deciding factors are whether or not the D750 has OLPF or AA, the new ISO 64 or highlight-weighted metering, or its build quality in general.

    • Aldo

      no filter on the d3300, d5300, d810… assuming the d750 won’t have one either is pretty safe. Not sure about the iso64… it’s a good possibility but it is also a good place to “cripple” it and give the d810 an advantage… as for the high ISO… it could have slightly better performance than the d810 simply because of the lower mp count. (eg d600 vs d800). Build quality I expect more super plastic than metal (especially since it will have a movable screen).

      • Ian Lindo

        I had similar thoughts about the ‘gimping’. If this was both a “mini D4” AND a “D810 with 24 MP” Nikon probably wouldn’t sell too many of the former cameras, save for the 10% of photographers who either need the extra durability/frame rate of the D4 or 50% more pixels in the D810. Then again, as others have said…if anything is going to steal sales from Nikon, it might as well be Nikon, ha

        • Andrew

          Actually, this camera (D750) raises the possibility for people to buy both the D810 and D750. The resolution detail and performance of the D810 is stunning and is in my opinion Nikon’s new flagship camera. I see the D750 competing more with the D4s. Why own the D4s when you can own both the D810 and D750 for less? Nikon is not competing with Nikon in this instance, Nikon is feeding us more!

          • jonnie

            “Why own the D4s when you can own both the D810 and D750 for less?”

            If only my bank manager would think the same way!

            • Andrew

              Your bank manager would love this, he/she would tell you to make a choice, and then save up for the other camera once your finances stabilize. But your employer would pay for the D4s which you would not open, and then within a few days call up the store to exchange it for both the D810 and D750. When you turn in those D750 action shots (i.e pictures), your employer would feel that he got his money’s worth. But why play games, any reasonable manager would approve the purchase anyway, that way you stay ethical.

      • nobody

        A 24mp FX sensor has a clearly lower pixel density than all of those cameras you mention. What makes it more prone to moiré. That’s why I for one prospective buyer hope it does have an AA filter.

        • Ian Lindo

          From what it seems, moire is virtually a non issue on the D810 with improved firmware. I can’t imagine the D750 would be any different.

          • nobody

            I can’t help your imagination, but lower pixel density does increase the probability that moiré occurs. Thus a 24mp sensor is more prone to moiré than a 36mp sensor.

            • Ian Lindo

              Didn’t realize. Thought it was the other way around. Regardless, I don’t think it’s something we need to worry about.

        • Aldo

          good point. but I still think it will not have the filter

          • Nameless

            The D7100 and D5300 don’t have AA filter too

            • Henry

              Yep – but they too have a much higher pixel density being a DX with 24mp. 🙂
              The 24mp FX is “only” twice a D700, anyway I also don’t think there will be a filter.

          • Eno

            Me too, simple because a good AA filter costs a lot of money, by removing it, Nikon earns more money from the camera. It is as simple as that :).

      • Shaun V.

        I’m sure Nikon won’t cripple the D750 ISO wise. Even the D3300 shoots up to ISO 12800 natively thanks to Expeed 4. If Nikon does decide to cripple the D750 in fear it will cannibalize D810 sales, it will be in some other way.

        • Aldo

          I was referring more to the ISO 64. I hope they don’t cripple the d750 at all though.

          • Shaun V.

            My bad! I saw that you wrote ISO64… and thought you were referring IS06400!

            • Aldo

              yeah I’m thinking this new ISO 64 thing is a really cool and useful “pro” feature… more like the sync speed of 250 vs 200… We just don’t know if they will go “all out” or they will remain conservative (like they done in the past) on this new camera…

            • Shaun V.

              Same here! I’m all for any lower base ISO as long as I don’t have to sacrifice dynamic range. Would love to see this in the D750. I just don’t believe the camera will be built like a D700 though.

            • stormwatch

              I hope that D750 will have ISO 50…that’s why there is 50 in the name!

          • i do believe that this time Nikon realised its better to cannibalise than let customers money flow to competitors pocket. I have some undefined feeling that this time we may call it (finally) D700 successor. The big question is body material – could be magnesium or carbon or mix of both. I don’t think this model will be crippled too much… on other hand guys at Nikon they are masters to cripple good camera into a crap 🙂 ……

        • Leandro Ngo

          The buffer might be another place they can gimp the D750.

          • Aldo

            Very true… but considering the d700’s reputation that would be like shooting themselves in the foot. If that was the case then just call it d620 better

          • Shaun V.

            Buffer is a possibility! But this is being marketed as an action oriented camera though… My money is on build quality!

          • Spy Black

            Considering this is rumored as an “action” camera, I don’t think the buffer will be compromised.

  • Stilllearning

    Just got on the list at my local shop. Will see if I stay on or switch to the D810 line. Before this week they wouldn’t do anything. This is just another confirm there is a new camera being announced.

  • Andrew

    Admin, you said Nikon does not announce anything on Fridays. But I guess this one is acceptable because Thailand is 9 hours ahead of the U.S. So 10:30 am in Thailand is 1:30 am in the East Coast (USA time), enough time for the reporters to get the news out before daybreak on Friday.

    • I still think the US announcement will be Wednesday night EST.

      • MyrddinWilt

        Well it ain’t going to be iPhone6 launch day…

      • Sebastien

        Why Nikon would announce the product in the US before the official press event ?

        But…I would be pretty happy if you are right 🙂

        • They won’t, because of the different timezones.

  • Ms.KrystalMeth

    Where is the early pictures?

    • br0xibear

      Still wrapped up in an NDA, but someone usually opens their presents early so…

      • there is always one, let’s who will be this time 🙂

    • catinhat

      The web is flooded with the D750 images. Even if most or all of them are someone’s guesses, you can see that they are generally based on the D600 type body. Given what we heard about the pricing and a “lighter” body, I don’t expect D700 type quality at $2500 in 2014. Ain’t gonna happen. Expect disappointments. I would be disappointed myself, but after monitoring Nikon offerings over the past few years I’ve adjusted my expectations. I think many will be asking: is it really worth so much more than the D610, while others will probably think: if I’m to spend that much may as well get a D810 for a bit more.

      • Ms.KrystalMeth

        How’s that new Fiber Diet going?

        • catinhat

          I don’t eat my tripods.

          • FredBear

            Don’t knock it until you’ve tried it.

  • GET ON WITH IT ALREADY!

  • PeterPan

    If it will be an announcement in the US the 10th, should we know by now, as it is the 9th already?

    • FredBear

      Just ask Alice – oops, Wendy …

  • bgbs

    Like I said, I’m not too confident about this rumored D750 when we’ve seen no early pictures of it. It must be some mediocre product, we’ll just yawn, and move on.

    • Or it’s so good, they’re keeping is especially secret so that they don’t tip off the competition.

      I’m in Product Management and my best stuff I always keep the tightest security around.

      • If there are no leaks, it means the camera is made in Japan.

        • br0xibear

          I think it’s more to do with the new people at the top at Nikon, the Df was made in Japan and images leaked.
          They’re trying to put you out of business Peter ?

          • there is still time for leaks 🙂

            • Stilllearning

              Maybe an hour before it’s announced. 😀

            • FredBear

              We all need a leak from time to time to be sure 😉
              It’s difficult to keep it in …

            • there is aways one

            • sure, urologist could confirm that 😉

        • FredBear

          No leeks and it’s certainly not Welsh.

      • br0xibear

        You mean it might have the Holy Grail…Interchangeable sensors ?

        • FredBear

          I’ll settle for changeable focus screens …
          Second coming and all that …

    • Sebastien

      There is no picture of upcoming Canon 7DII as well. while it should be announced next week too.

      • catinhat

        If 7DII is what it is rumored, the remaining D300 diehards will be leaving Nikon in droves.

        • Bamboojled

          We’ll miss them 🙁

        • Sandy Bartlett

          There are no “droves” of D300 users, that’s the problem. I still hope Nikon makes another pro DX cameras.

          • catinhat

            We don’t know that. There are those who shoot D7000/D7100 but are not fully satisfied, as well as those who use FX but would strongly prefer DX for some applications. And some people may still shoot D300 along with some other body they’ve picked up along the way. Now, if Canon makes a really high quality DX body, many of the above will be tempted. The real user numbers are anyone’s guess.

  • Peter

    Any news on new lenses already, Peter?

    • FredBear

      400mm F5.6 is a cert.

    • Maji

      Hoping for a 300/4VR.

  • Jon McGuffin

    Come on Peter, where are our “just prior to release” leaks? 🙂

  • YS

    Never had an announcement made the day after an event like this. So it’s very likely to be the 12th.

  • ProPhotografer

    Forget about the Nikon D750, it’s all about the Nikon D3400.

  • Ryan

    The suspense is killing me…

  • sbh

    I wonder if Nikon is avoiding a Thursday announcement because this year it is the anniversary of the World Trade Centre attacks.
