edited December 2012 in Nikon DSLR cameras

In 2013 is very likely Nikon will announce a new camera

Trying to keep the technology with in what is likely, in the next year ( eg no 10 - 800 mm f 1.4 zooms )

What would you like see

ignore price,  you camera will so so popular and Nikon will sell so many, they will be able to keep the price reasonable

    My camera will be similar to the D800

    it will has two sensors one similar to the D800 the other to the D4

    The battery pack, which will be included in the price of the camera  ,will have  a pocket wizard, allow complete wireless control, have a  bigger buffer and higher fps

    Camera
    D4-ish sensor, small body. Existing 16 MP in FX is fine.
    Willing to forego all bells/whistles as long as I can control aperture, shutter speed, ISO. And by all bells/whistles I mean all.

    Lenses
    More primes with Defocus Control. 85, 50, 200 as good places as any to start. If there happens to be a god, and he takes your picture in the afterlife, I'm telling you right now he's using the 135mm f/2 DC. Even one more of these lenses would be magnificent: no clue why the existing two are so relatively close in focal length (105mm, 135mm).

    A DX camera with D800 IQ in a D300 quality/size body.   New CLS that retains the current IR/pre-flash system and adds radio-wave (Radiopopper - Pocketwizard) control.   Retains IR so that my current flashes will work, and adds radio control so that my new flashed will work without having to make sure they can "see" the commander.

    A wildlife photographers dream: 18-20MP DX sensor in D800 body, 8 fps without grip (10 with..), native ISO 12800, same autofocus as D4/800, buffer size approaching that of a D4 and for those rare occasions 1080P, 60fps.
    I would pay good money for something like that..

    Not a camera - I am happy with my D700 - but a FX 35 mm f/1.8 or f/2 would be nice. I heard the DX version works on FX as well, but I'd prefer a dedicated FX version.

    Yes, please!

    Almost sounds like you want a D800 with a grip - used in DX mode :-)

    Most boxes ticked LOL

    We gave up waiting for the mystical D400 and bought an 800

    If it's more the price than the size, try a Sigma 35/1.4 instead of waiting for a dedicated Nikon FX, I don't think you'd be disappointed.

    In 2013, I'd like to see small improvements only, 2012 was my "get the gear"-year and so far I don't have more wishes. Lenscaps with better grips would be nice, rear caps with easier handling, too. And maybe a P7700 with a range finder, but that's not urgent.

    I am on for the D300 user's description....basically a DX D4 in a D800 body.  At $2,000?

    Tommie - I would prefer a $1999 price tag on it :)

    I have to say that don't feel limited by my D7000. I'm sure I could think of lenses but they already exist. I hope for everyone else that a D400 comes out.
    CC is welcome. DC is also welcome when I deserve it.

    D7000 (yes, a DX), but with:

    - fixed autofocus and oil problems

    - slightly lower mass (100-200g less)

    - articulated (like in my D5100 - sometimes I keep the camera either just above the ground or as high as I can) non-glare screen

    - larger viewfinder and a better eye piece (I like the KPS one)

    - new 12Mpix (probably even more than enough for me) sensor with much improved noise on high ISO and dynamic range outperforming a film :D

    - in-body vibration reduction (by means of sensor movement) - to be used with non-VR lens (like 35/1.8) ONLY; typical zoom lenses should keep the in-lens VR functionality

    - built-in power-efficient geolocation chip - should be able to use GPS, GLONASS, Galileo and Beidou satellites at the same time, together with A-GPS and gyroscopes - to speed-up the acquisition and improve the accuracy; it's should be highly configurable - able to select which systems to use, whether to log heading info to the EXIF or not, what to log if no signal can be acquired, how to behave when camera is turned off (see the Solmeta GPS units functionality), etc.

    - built-in WiFi (automatic hot-spot usage) and 3G modem; the firmware should be able to upload the photos to my FTP server (using SSH or OpenVPN) or any cloud service as soon as possible. Camera dropped into deep river? Not a problem - photo taken a minute earlier is already uploaded to my network drive, safe at home...

    - DNG as the native RAW format

    Hmmm, I think I might have patented some of those ideas :D

    [EDIT] I forgot about the built-in radio speedlight control

    I would really like to see as soon an FX zoom such as an AF-S Nikkor 28 - 100 mm f/2,8G ED VR.

    D400 Dx 16-20mp, D800 body, D4/D800 AF, 8 fps 9/10 with grip, clean iso12800, D4 buffer, twin card slots of same type, some quick crop options like Fx has

    that would do me perfectly

    Now this is a wish list....native ISO of 64,000 with 54 MP.....  About 2015, but by then, the mirror will have disappeared.

    What else? Twin D4 bodies! [Nevermind--I mis-read the spirit of the thread!]

  • JerryBurnellJerryBurnell Posts: 6Member

    Sorry native of 100, base of ISO 100-64,000

    The list may not be that far off.

  • ElvisheferElvishefer Posts: 329Member
    I probably sound like a broken record, especially in this neighborhood, but I want an updated D700.

    The new processor, sensor (preferably the D4's) and AF. 

    Similar body and similar button layout to the D700: Two card slots, 100% viewfinder.

    No video.

    /shrug

    I know it won't happen, but dare to dream...


    D700, 70-200mm f/2.8 VRII, 24-70mm f/2.8, 14-24mm f/2.8, 50mm f/1.4G, 200mm f/4 Micro, 105mm f/2.8 VRII Micro, 35mm f/1.8, 2xSB900, 1xSB910, R1C1, RRS Support...

    ... And no time to use them.

    I really like the idea of built-in arca-swiss plates.  Apart from that, I think it is only a question of time like Msmoto said, not 2013 tho.

    Don't get the automatic mirror lock-up - that is shutter delay mode isn't it?
    Always learning.
