The long awaited Nikon DX format flagship DSLR camera Nikon D400 or Nikon D500 recently got another rumors. Canadian nature photographer Brad Hill recently posted rumored specs of Nikon D400 / D500: 10 fps, a very good buffer with a price tag around $2,300. NikonRumors also said there is a chance Nikon will announced Nikon D5 and Nikon D400/D500 at the same time, just like Nikon D3/D300 in past.
From Bill Hill:
Anyway…in the last 10 days I’ve received 3 separate and independent communications (via email) telling me that a semi-pro (or even higher) quality DX body from Nikon is going to be announced in January. Two of these three sources have been spot-on in the past re: what they’ve told me was coming, and the third is from a new source that I really can’t say too much about (simply because I don’t know).
The interesting thing is that I’m getting scant specs, but those I am getting are consistent from all 3 sources – DX format, 10 fps, a “very good” buffer (whatever that actually means) and selling for around $2300 USD(which is about a billion dollars Canadian these days…well..actually around $3100 CAD). This consistency could say something about rumour credibility (or it could mean all 3 of my sources got THEIR information from the same source). Note that at least one of the sources derives their income from Nikon.
