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
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?
