Yeah, i know, this is a Canon site - but for those wishing to jump ship - here's your new mode of transport.

I'm interested in the replication of the joystick on the battery grip, nice touch. Would've looked that in the BG on my 5D2.

And as it's a Nikon rumour - i'm gonna assign it a CR2 rating... :)

Did i mention that some where it says it will have a USB3 connector?

Yeah noticed the mini joystick in the battery grip. But it's not official, Nikon logo and model no is not shown. So that joystick could be some photoshopping.

Or it could even be a 3rd party one similar to how you can buy fake Canon ones with an intervalometer built in.

like these http://www.ebay.com/itm/LCD-BATTERY-GRIP-CANON-EOS-550D-Rebel-T2i-BG-E8-/130480239320?pt=Batteries_Chargers&hash=item1e613a72d8#ht_2394wt_1149

The nikon rumors admin has commented saying that it is infact a joke. Followed by a lot of disgruntled nikon fans saying they will never use nikon rumors again!

Page 6 of the comments: "Okey this was a joke. It’s an old prototype…"

A hilarious joke at that.

I see. Perhaps CR guy in disguise trying to pee them off?

With any luck this will make Canon think about a 1Ds replacement in the same megapixel range.

Sorry Canon, but I have no intention of being fobbed off with a 1Dx. I'd rather wait until you see the error of your ways.

Is that a jump from 12.1 MP to 36 MP?? I am curious what Canon has to offer next year. Will this start the MP race again?
Any news on ISO for this Nikon?

The term "megapixel race" is thrown around a lot, I think somewhat erroneously. There is no "race," but rather progress. As companies are able to deliver cameras that improve digital noise and add more sophisticated features while simultaneously delivering the OPTION of higher resolution (don't forget, you don't have to shoot full size RAWs), why wouldn't they? Don't you think consumers would complain if they knew a technology was capable of 36mp but companies were only delivering 12? I, for one, am happy that 35mm cameras are beginning to reach the resolution of MF, at least in terms of sensor capability.

Some thoughts on the D800/5d Mark III: This may be the new look of the "studio camera." Why do you need 1-series weather sealing in a studio? I'd expect the new standard size cameras to present a full set of pro features in a compact body designed for studio work, but capable of light field work for photojournalists, landscape photographers, wedding photographers, and the like. I think many photographers who started with film have never liked the large 1D body size anyway; I'd far prefer something to which I can attach a grip if I needed it, but otherwise could be compact. The 5d Mark II with enhanced resolution, the new pro autofocus, 100% viewfinder coverage, two card slots, and a slightly extended battery life, plus unlocked software features, would pretty much fit that bill, possibly coming in at around $3,500. Such a price point would leave open a spot for a re-packaged 5d Mark II sensor in a smaller body with fewer features for about $1,800. Just some thoughts. What do you all think?

I think it's too much. all those features will have a price and I sure hope canon doesn't match that with the 5d3.
or else I cant afford it!

Something like that would make a great replacement for the 5D2. I especially like that the AF is the same one used in their professional model. Too bad Canon doesn't do that. Anyway, I suspect that landscape and studio photographers will love it. (Un)fortunately, I don't do enough of either kind of photography to warrant buying one, even if it was a Canon.

Error?? The 1Dx is exactly what I want, except that I want a smaller body and a much lower price. For that, I'd be willing to give up 12FPS (6 will be enough) and a bit of bulletproof ruggedness.

funny comment, lol :D
I don't see where Canon made an error?! 5DIII is very likely to be in the 28-36MP range too so that will be the answer to D800, soon... 1Dx and D800 are not really in the same league tbh.

I'm happy for Nikon guys btw, they were stuck at 12MP for quite some time on almost all models except the D3x. Now they will at least have a choice ;)

Not sure where Nikon is going with that.
36MP is spectacular on paper but seems impractical for event photogs (arguably the main target market of this camera).
The slow frame rate does not help either.
OTOH, competition is good, so go Nikon 8).

for me, 1Dx sensor with single digic 5 for 5fps with AF between 60D and 7D, clean video (no moire/aliasing) at 1080x24p25p30p and 720x50p60p on H.264 420 (and maybe mpeg2 422), for $2800 body only, sounds like a winner

I think more megapixels is better, but I don't actually need 36 of them just yet

I have no criticism of the 1Dx as a replacement for the 1D, for those who want/need that camera it is probably an excellent body. But I believe it is not and never will be a proper update of the 1Ds.
