Nikond4-224x139Just a rumor... disclaimers apply... etc. The Nikon D4, which should compete with the Canon 1DX, is supposedly landing in January, with "improved" video (read: 1080p) and an uncompressed HDMI output. It's also slated to be "only" 16 megapixels, which, along with its maximum ISO of 102,400 should make it a low-light beast. Is this the DSLR that has Nikon catching up or surpassing the video capabilities of offerings from Panasonic or Canon?

We could find out more at this year's PMA in Vegas in early January. The D4 may also be one of the first cameras to use XQD, the next generation of CF cards (it should be backwards compatible with standard CF cards, so you don't have to throw out all of those old cards).

This was a short post -- it's just a rumor, after all -- so here is an image of a (fictional) Bruce Lee-edition Nikon D3, for no reason whatsoever:


Who needs 1080p when you can have a camera that looks like this?
