Nikon doesn't have any action cameras in its current lineup, other than the d4

What does an action camera need that's absent from all but the D4?  I'm assuming:

  • frame rate
  • buffer size

Anything else?  It's not intended as a loaded question.  I'm not an action photographer, and I hear this comment often, and I'm genuinely curious.

People often say that the D800 won't do action (and isn't a replacement for the D700) because it can manage a "mere" 4 fps in FX mode.  The D7100 isn't an action camera because its buffer isn't big enough.

Is there more to an action camera that the D300 has and the D4 has, but no other current camera has?
