I remembered more than one month ago, people on the Internet predicted that Nikon will release its named D8000 as a replacement of D90, but now it is Oct 28, 2011, there is still no authoritative news about the exact release date of Nikon D8000.
There are increasing rumors about the release date, specifications and price of Nikon’s latest camcorder Nikon D8000, some say it will be release in September, some say it will be October, and some even say it will be the end of this year. Till now, there is no exact news of the release date.
As to the specifications, there are not too many materials available, the most frequently talked topic is that, Nikon 8000 will be a replacement of D90, will probably have 16MP DX-format sensor (ASP-C) that offers1 080p@24p HD movie capture. And furthermore, it will probably offers a 100-6400 ISO sensitivity range, and probably will go even higher in expanded mode.
And it was said that Nikon D8000 it would be the first real Nikon DSLR outside of the D3x to shoot over 12 megapixels and would have both a sensor between 16 and 18 megapixels as well as 1080p video. There are also rumors that the release of D8000 is for addressing the Auto Focus problem of Nikon 7000 which caused huge amount complaints of users.
