The new Nikon DSLR camera, which will be introduced on the market in the near future, will not be capable of recording videos, sources have revealed.
Recently, it has come to our attention that Nikon is working on a hybrid camera with a retro design and exciting features, such as the same D4 image sensor.
A long list of specs and features has been leaked, too, as well as the confirmation that the Japanese company will make a special edition AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.8 G lens, which will fit the old style of the hybrid shooter.
Well, a new piece of information has been found lurking in the wild, but it brings bad news, unfortunately.
New Nikon DSLR camera will not record videos, official announcement scheduled for November 6
As Canon and Panasonic are also focusing on video capabilities, the same thing cannot be said about Nikon. According to inside sources, the new Nikon DSLR camera will not be able to record videos at all.
Although not very many photographers are capturing videos for a living, this is still an important feature that a lot of people will experiment with at some point.
This category of consumers will clearly avoid the upcoming shooter, but it is always wise not to jump into conclusions and wait for the official announcement, which is set to take place on November 6.
High-end Nikon D4 to lend its 16.2MP sensor to the new “hybrid” DSLR camera
Meanwhile, it is almost a certainty that the so-called hybrid camera will feature a 16.2-megapixel full frame sensor, like the D4, extended ISO range between 50 and 108,200, 3.2-inch LCD screen, and up to 5.5fps in continuous shooting mode.
Nikon’s new device will sport 3D color matrix metering II system, F-mount support, a built-in optical viewfinder, EXPEED 3 processor, and EN-EL14 battery.
An SD memory card slot will allow users to store their images in a body of excellent quality with professional-level physical controls.
Nikon will be ready to take on the Sony A7 and A7R full frame mirrorless cameras
The new Nikon DSLR camera is rumored to be sized at 143.5 x 110 x 66.5mm while weighing 765 grams. Its body will look like the FM2 SLR, sources have revealed.
For the time being, the reason why it is called a “hybrid” is unknown. However, it is sure to compete against the new Sony A7 and A7R E-mount mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras.
The official announcement is said to take place within the next three weeks, therefore it should not be a long wait. Take it with a pinch of salt, but stay tuned for more details!
