Sorry, but that looks WAY too fake for me to bite! One key piece reveals it as a fake: the D200 sized prism is NOT going to be mated with a FX sensor! Plus, this is the same type of poorly resized 'tweener' (something in between a D200 sized and D3 sized body) that has been floating around for years.

Sorry, but this one's certainly a fake...

No offense, but unless you know this to be a fact, this does not make sense. I'm a little confused on how people can want or even speculate so many cameras all at one time. The D700 isn't a good 3 months old and people are already talking about the next incarnation. This is of no disrespect to you, but why?? All you added to the camera was 2 megapixels from what I can tell. You even knocked the ISO performance down a stop.

What do people really want? The super camera? The camera that composes and book clients for you too?

I apologize if this comes off as disrespectful, but why would Nikon do that? It feels like the P&S world with DSLR's now. Canon has like 50 current P&S's and Nikon has maybe a tenth of those. Now we have going on 10 DSLR for each of the major 2 manufacturers.

Wow, if that's for real, then Nikon is being relentless to it's high dollar customers. Spend a few grand and a couple months later it's updated with something better. Makes me glad I sat out a bit after selling my D300.

Sorry if I came off wrong. It's just a little crazy with cameras right now.

Plus I just bought a D700 a week ago so I'd really be upset beyond belief!

No, the specs are not that much better, from 12 to 14 MP, not a big deal, the higher fps is nice but this is way to soon to the D700, also note the not round viewfinder.

close but not real

Means Nikon will be skipping on 24 mpix Sony sensor?

Sorry, but just because you found it on the net does not make it worth sharing.

This is such an obvious fake video that it's not worth sharing unless the subject line is something like "Look at the latest fake video".

Do you really think Nikon is creating a video for the next generation body that makes a specific point of labeling the "silver shutter button"? Silver shutter button? Whoo boy!! put me down for 10.

FX 100% Viewfinder without the signature round eyepiece? Obviously FAKE! D3 and D700 both have it. F5 and F6 too.

As if Nikon would be so proud of a silver shutter button
In reply to mau_horng, Sep 3, 2008

I was laughing so hard about the special attention to the silver shutter button as if that was Nikon's best feature ever!
