p.2 #1 · New D4 successor rumored.


I am somewhat surprised by everybody's wish list for the D4S/D5. So far we have people wishing for 24mp and more frames per second. Rumored specs hint at something like this. The more important move would be from EXPEED3 to EXPEED4. None of the wish list will come true without this.

My wish list is a double announcement reminiscent of the D3/D300 introduction.

D5 with 12 fps, 24 mp with EXPEED 4 processor

D500 with 8fps, 24mp with EXPEED 4 processor.

True enough but the days when a pro DSLR was orders of magnitude above the next tier, are over.


I agree, though they've been over since the introduction of the D800E if we're talking image quality. If we're talking usability, speed, build quality, etc. then they're still not over.

Sigh.

I was hoping for a D4x, but this sure looks like a very small incremental upgrade to the D4. Hopefully the rumors are wrong and we'll see something a bit more interesting.


Seems like the D4S is what's next. I too was expecting a D4x. The "HD-SLR" moniker suggest a focus on video. That is a shame.

The D3s fixed all the D3's problems, so this is continuing that trend.

Oh, to shoot the NOCT at ISO 500,000, noise-free, where disembodied spirits become visible!

It will have higher ISO. Does it need higher frame rate? Ha! I would only expect a modest bump in MP. These cameras have never been about MP.

What else do you guys want? Make a wish list!

I agree - looks like Nikon's journey to the Dark Side of not doing anything even remotely predictable is finally complete. I think this is the first time an "s" variant came before an "x" variant in the pro line. I kind of wonder if it's because they want a 54MP camera and that sensor just isn't ready for prime time yet. I wonder if we'll even see an "x" variant of the D4 at all or if it will come as a D5x (possibly announced with the D5 in a couple of years)

This is all about the Olympics. The timing. They will have it run through it's paces there. Then release it. Perfect timing for that scenario. The updates are all about sport photography.

So, how much would D4 prices drop, if anything?

If they're going to do a D4S, at least make it dual EXPEED4 processors with dual XQD slots. And kill the stupid video.

Wow. I bought my D4 through Amazon in November. The return period is until Jan 31. I will wait for more details before possibly returning the D4 to Amazon. It's a win win for me. I don't need such a camera but if pricing is equal to D4 then I will advance to D4s just for the sake of it.

I still think a tweaked and polished D800 would bring on many sales.


In what ways would you like to see Nikon polish the D800?

I could not agree more ... just don't start a thread joking about it!
