Nikon D800 Outed?

Nikon D800 Outed?

Disclaimer
I realize this is Canon Rumors, however a massive megapixel Nikon DSLR is relevant. We didn’t get such a feature from the 1D X, maybe this is what’s coming with the next 5D.

Nikon D800
We & NR reported ages ago that Nikon was going to release a giant megapixel camera. The announcement date seems to have moved around a lot.

Nikon Rumors has a purported image of the the camera, and a spec list.

Specs from NR

  • Smaller and lighter than D700
  • Resolution: 7360×4912 (36MP)
  • CF+SD memory card slots
  • Slightly larger display
  • Excellent video quality, better than D3s
  • Video modes: 1080p/30/25/24 and 720p/60/30/25/24
  • AF identical to D3/D700

Nikon D800 at 36mp, Will Canon Respond?

Nikon D800 at 36mp, Will Canon Respond?

The megapixel war is on
We were told a while ago about a big megapixel camera coming from Nikon, the date of the announcement was wrong, but it doesn’t appear the camera is.

Nikon Rumors is reporting a 36mp D800 coming in the next 30-60 days at a 99% probability.

Why does a Canon site care?
Lots of people speculated Canon was waiting for a Nikon announcement to decide how to proceed. If Nikon announces this camera and is able to delivery before the year closes out, I don’t think Canon has any choice but to respond in some way.

What about responding to a big megapixel camera with a small megapixel, high ISO performance full frame camera [here] & [here]?
