A Czech forum, Grafika On-Line, has posted what appears to be the entirety of Nikon's 2009/2010 release schedule. It appears to originate from a company that provides Nikon with IT services.
It's boring and detailed enough to be legitimate, and we're not going to post the whole 37-page document, but the highlights in 2009 are:Nikon D3000
- 12.3MP, 7 AF points, ISO 200-3200 extendable to 6400, 3.5fps, Video unknownNikon D300s
- 12.3MP, 7fps, HD video (1080p .mov h.264, 24fps), CF and SD cards slots, 920,000 pixel LCD screenNikon D700x
- 24.5MP, 5fps, HD video (1080p .mov H264 24fps)
, AF-S Nikkor 24 to 135 mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR, AF-S Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II, AF-S Nikkor 35 mm f/1.4G, AF-S Nikkor 85 mm f/1.4G.
Then in 2010, things get a bit more exciting. We get:Nikon D4
- 15.7MP, up to 16fps with "double exposure", ISO 200-12800 (plus extended range), 61-point AF, 1080p video at 30fps, CLS control (although no flash is mentioned).Nikon D400
- 13.8MP, 8fps, Up to 12fps with "double exposure", ISO 200-6400 (plus extended range), 61-point AF, 1080p video at 24fpsNikon D4x
- 30.2MP, ISO 100 - 6400, 6fps, 1080p video at 30fps
And the followinglenses
: AF-S Nikkor 14 to 28 mm f/3.5-4.5G ED, AF-S Nikkor 120 to 450 mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR, AF-S Nikkor 300 mm f/4G VR, Nikkor AF-S VR 400 mm f/5.6G, AF-S Nikkor 70 to 240 mm f/3.5-4.5G VR, AF-S Nikkor 105 mm f/2G DC, AF-S Nikkor 24 to 85 mm f/4G VR, AF-S DX Nikkor 60 to 95 mm f/2G VR, AF-S DX Nikkor 17-60 mm f/2.8G VR.
It's not entirely clear what "double exposure" means in the list. Gadget Lab suggests that it could be an in-camera HDR capability, which could be incredible.
We'll find out how legitimate this list is in August when the D300 is due.
