This Just In: Nikon Announces New Camera In The Line-Up / D700

[photopress:D700_24_120_front.jpg,full,centered] So halfway between the D300 and the D3, Nikon brings the D700.
Size wise comparable to the D300 but has the amazing ISO range of the D3 (up to 25,000!)
Full Frame sensor : FX (23.9 x 36mm) and cropped DX
Still a 12.1 megapixel unit, but you know by now that its all about the processor.
BIg 3″ screen in back, uses the same batteries as the D200 and D300
And, thank you Nikon, it takes the lenses all the way back to my older AI glass. Whew!

What it does do is cram a lot of great features of the D3 into a more compact size. including the sensor and processor. What it doesn’t have is the shutter life (about half of the D3), the speed, and the dual CF card slots, among other features. If none of that affects your shooting, then you’ll be lining up for this one.

BUT…and there always is a but…it’s about $3000 USD. So about 65% more than the D300 and 40% less than the pro D3. Now lets see if the D300 takes a drop.
So they’ve filled a gap for a segment of the shooters out there, however, with Photokina right around the corner, you may want to wait for the other shoe to drop for a purchase. We know how it is though, if you need it now, you need it now.

Here is some initial press on the unit from the folks at Nikon, with all of the specs you may need.

And as Steve jobs is about to release the new cheaper better iPhone, let’s all understand that technology will keep moving faster and getting better and cheaper.

Just remember to make better photographs.

Heck, we are giving away a Holga, for goodness sakes!
All about perspective.
