2.7K Video?

I would guess, odds are the new D9300 camera would not have 4K video, so Nikon can reserve that feature for the next version of FF camera. I would hope though for Full HD instead at 1080 and 60P or 30P. Likely will have some type of video, as most new cameras have it. New PDAF on sensor would be nice if possible.

What about 2.7K? It should allow for better cropping and sharpness when downsampled. Sure it's not a standard being 2704x1524 but I'll take it over 1920x1080 (1080).

Don't get me wrong, I'd rather have 4K but 2.7K is better than just HD footage.

And as a faster fps camera for sports or wildlife shooters, maybe still photos is all many people need. But more people using video these days, as it becomes more popular and better in new cameras. And Nikon would want to attract diversity of new buyers looking for higher spec features (without having to go full frame).

As a higher spec than a D7100 camera or higher model number, it would be higher priced. My guess, between $1800 or up to $2300 maybe depending on feature set. However, if they decide not to use as rugged as D300 body, maybe price would be lower, like $1600 to $1800 to start. Maybe.

$2300 is the most I'd be willing to spend on a DX body. Maybe $2700 if it is a D2X replacement with 24mp, 11fps and ~30 frame buffer.   WOW WHAT A CAMERA THAT WOULD BE!
