Nikons surprise!

There is a lot of talk the last month or so of something big coming from Nikon in April or the summer of 2011, but no one knows what that may be. Well, after a lot of persuading, i finally got my Nikon contact from Thailand to speak.

Here is the news for all the world to know: The D800 (not the D4) will have a sensor carriage that can be easily removed by an authorized dealer.

The D800 will have a 16.4MP FX Nikon designed sensor. By September 2011 Nikon will have the first available replaceable sensor available.

It will be a B&W 12MP sensor that will offer better sharpness and detail due to lack of the typical Gaussian filter. Another big plus will be the large range of digital filters for B&W photography. From tests so far, Nikon is very pleased that the new sensor will have the most amazing ISO performance the world has ever seen. There's also some special filters for UV and IR and other specialised fields in industry.

The D800 will also have a 3.3" screen with built in collapsible hood.
The D800 will be compatible with the MB-D10 plus the new MB-D10i

Shutter speeds of 1/16000sec and a new technology for very long exposures without noise or extra time.

Better AF in video mode with proper Full HD video at 120fps

The D4 from what i was told will be hitting the streets at Christmas time 2011. No info on what it will carry.

Thats all folks
