Nikon D900 rumors

Recommended Posts

So, the rumor mill is active again. The new kid on the block seems to be a possible Nikon D900, basically a D700 with a better sensor (18mp at least) and 1080p video (not that I care about that).

 

Rumors about this possible D900 are flying over the net, does anybody have any inside info they want to share? ^_^ I for one would be the first on the wait list if such camera ever materialized as I am looking for a smaller alternative to my aging D2x. Not that there is anything wrong with my D2x, but in the age of ever changing airport security smaller is always better.

I don't really mind, I follow the rumors out of natural curiosity, but when it comes out (if it comes out) we will have plenty of time to think about it. At least some 6 months before the housing market gets somewhat defined for it... uwphotogs are never at the front wave anymore.

I think I would also jump on D900 bandwagon to replace my D2X. However, I am still not sure if I really want to go FF or not ^_^

I assume it will be at least 12 months or longer before Nikon will have any significant upgrade for DX sensor camera after recent release of

D300s.

I presume you have read the same rumors as I have on Nikon Rumors; looks like we'll have to wait till February. ^_^

I need a second full frame body; sure hope whatever is released will fit in my present housing with nothing more than a new back. If the rumors regarding same battery grip are correct then it should be pretty similar to the D700.

I'd immediately buy a D900 if it materialized. I may have to anyways as my 2 D2X housings are current missing at MIA. Probably being sold off as we speak ^_^

Interesting little point being suggested is the use of the same Kodak 18MP CCD as used in the Leica M9.

Question for Drew. Will a CCD sensor be a better option for video?

And here Bob Krist is shooting low light aerials of Miami with Gear he cannot talk about; does this say low light video?

Some say the camera he is holding is a Sony with Zeiss, I say it looks like a Nikon.
