Aptina on NR
May 1, 2012
Nikon rumors are speculating about a rumored full frame sensor by Aptina ,and concluding that Nikon are involved .
I notice that on one of thier pages they have a write up on a new 16mp APS C sensor
with good low light capability and 1080hd ,live view @ 60fps etc. the picture at the top of the page is clearly a Nikon DX pro camera D200-300 .
As nikon is using Aptina sensors in thier mirrorless offerings ,i wonder if this new 16mp ,or similar would find its way into the long awaited D400 .
following the exdellent series of DX pro cameras ,D100/200/300/S .
It is my belief (hope) that Nikon will give us something really special in the next model in this series .
I am not that technically minded ,prefering to marvel in the results of my photography rather than how it was achived (technically)
so here is the flyer (pdf) for the 16mp sensor ,maybe you more technically adept members can break the data down and find some holes .
That's my guess, PDAF off-sensor, full sensor AF coverage, a la V1. Only reason for the long updating wait. Either that of Nikon have abandoned the pro APS-C market, a big mistake, they'd not do that.
Good shooting and good luck
