Nikon leaks on itself

Nikon let the cat out of the bag early about the new D3x by publishing in Nikon Pro magazine and then accidentally shipping the mags early. At least that’s the story. 🙂

24.5 megapixels, not bad. How much? Not known.


Nikon’s D90: future think

A lot is being made of Nikon’s new D90, out in September. Besides all its up-to-date still camera features (many from the pro-level bodies), it offers movie capture at up to 1280 x 720 (720p) 24 fps with mono sound, a first in a digital SLR.

While the camera is exciting, especially at its price point ($999 body only, $1299 with 18-105VR lens), it really makes me think about this:

if Nikon can build a still camera that takes high quality video, with limitations, how soon before someone comes out with a real, hi-def, interchangeable lens video camera at this same price point? One with a 24x16mm, 12 megapixel sensor? That takes Nikon lenses?
