ShutterPoint’s Nikon Rumours

We’ve recently had Bob Atkins’ Canon Rumours page, which have largely turned out to be true. Now it’s the turn of to make some Nikon predictions - will they be as accurate? If so, then we should see a 15 megapixel Nikon D3, 8.25 megapixel Nikon D200 and an 8.2 megapixel Nikon D2X by the end of 2004.

  1. Atkins's predictions came completely from a guy from Europe on who publicly relayed in June or July the specs told to him by his local dealer. Most people responded at the time that they didn't believe that a dealer would have that kind of advance information but it was completely right. It's not as if Atkins had any inside connection. He actually complained on that Canon wasn't sending them any prerelease equipment, althought HP did occasionally.

    What is lonestardigital's record of being right?

  2. Hey Mark, according to my store's Nikon rep, September 16th will be the day Nikon officially announces its new camera lineup. He wouldn't give any specifics, but he inferred there will be a replacement for the F5, and that at least one of their new dSLRs will leave the D20 in the dust. Should be an exciting day!

  3. I have been waiting for Nikon to announce a true competitor to Canon high end DSLR for a long time. Canon had no competition at all in the past years and this is one of the major reason why 1Ds is so outside the reach of most people

  4. Does anyone find it interesting that as soon as Nikon introduced the D2X (superior to Canon's top of the line CMOS sensor until recently), Canon suddenly announces the Mark II with 16.7 Mp? I still like the promised features on the D2X, but I smell a tech war with Nikon and Canon in the coming months. This is what we have been waiting for. I intend to let the dust settle and see what the reviews say about all the models that emerge before I sell a kidney and buy one of these things... maybe if I sell my house I can buy two...

  5. I wonder if indeed there will a tech war -- Nikon is enslaved to other companies' CCDs, and therefore they just can't "wish up" another camera.

    True, Sony might have something for them. But, Nikon may instead trim their margins and attack Canon on a price/performance war.

    Nikon probably needs to go into an acquisitive mode and by a CCD R&D outfit and get themselves up to speed creating their own heart-of-the-digital-camera parts. Until then, Canon will lead and Nikon will follow.

    Ultimately, I expect Nikon will lose this war.
