The Nikon D700 has been around for over three years now and fans have been eagerly looking forward to its successor. And images and specs of the successor have emerged and we may only have to wait until later this week to see the Nikon D800 in all its glory.
The people over at Nikon Rumours have managed to get their hands on some images of the up-coming camera as well as some specs of the new DSLR. As we reported last month, the D800 will have a full-frame FX sensor capable of outputting 36MP and will be capable of shooting 1080p video at 30, 25 or 24fps or 720p video at 60, 30, 25 or 24fps – with the quality said to be better than that of the D3.
The D800 will be smaller and lighter than the D700 but will have a slightly larger display. The auto focus system will be identical to the D700 and D3.
Nikon Rumours said they were not given a date for the release of the D800, but previous rumours have hinted that the cameras would be launched this week (24 November) in Japan and would cost around ¥300,000 (£2,500).
Let us know in the comments what you think of these images? Are they real? And if so, are you looking forward to the launch?
