I came across this article on Digital Rev, releasing the latest news on the rumoured Nikon D800, D400, D4 and D4X. For those who are not familiar with cameras and lenses, the line up aims to replace the following models:

1) D800 will replace the D700, Nikon’s first full-frame prosumer camera below the professional D3 series.

2) D400 will replace the D300s, the legendary DX DSLR flagship equipped with HD movie ability

3) D4 / D4X will obviously replace Nikon’s flagship – the professional D3 series.

An entire line-up of the Nikon DSLR range can be found here.

Written by one Raphael Chieza, this post discusses the tentative information leaked out with regards to the much anticipated launch of the replacement DSLRs for the old outgoing range. The D700 has been in the market for close to 3 years, if I’m not wrong – a time good enough for Nikon to churn out another FX camera suitable for everyday usage (rather than lugging a D3 around).

The specifications for all new cameras look good though – an impressive 16 megapixels with at least a shooting speed of 6 frames per second – this will allow sports photographers to exploit the capabilities fully while on the field, although I’m sure most of them will rely on the professional D3 series, capable of 9 to 11 frames.

Here’s a little information and specifications on the new camera:

There has been hypes on forums recently about the much anticipated release of these cameras – some were debating if the D700′s replacement will be termed as D700x or D800, or whether there will be a D700x or a D700s.


Personally, unless you’re into photography that requires low-light shooting capability, I don’t see the point for a full-frame (FX) camera like the D700 or the D800. A typical DX camera like the D7000 or the D300s would be sufficient.

I agree with a point brought up by Raphael – there’s no need to wait for the launch of these new cameras, unless you’re going to utilise the HD video mode of the DSLRs respectively. There will be little improvements as compared to the previous models, probably including the insertion of the new Nikon exspeed-II sensor and better noise control (I heard all replacement models are able to achieve an ISO of up to ISO 102,400!)


Here’s a few rumoured shots of the cameras:

The rumoured D800 beside the current D700 – note the differences as circled out on the D700. Quite obvious photoshop efforts, I would say. :P   – Photo | Internet

At the end of the day, as I’ve said again, I don’t see the need for a full-frame unless you shoot in extreme low-light conditions or require the fast FPS speed. I don’t think it’s worth the wait for the new line-up. It’ll probably be more of a want than a need.


As for me, I’m happy (as of now I think) with my old and faithful D300 :)
