Even without counting new Coolpixes, lenses and accessories, Nikon's 2012 is one of – if not the – most proliferous year in its history. Sofar, the company has launched no less than 5 new DSLR cameras: the D4 in January, the D800/E in February, the D3200 in April, the D600 in September and the D5200 – in Europe, Asia and Australia, on November 5, last.
I am not going to nag about how my search traffic has dropped off to virtually nothing. I'm sure I deserve it. One can hardly pretend to know better than a couple of hundreds of Google engineers, right?
Today (05-04-2011), Nikon launched the new D5100, which replaces the D5000.Among its most interesting specs are the "swing-out" 3 in. 921 K-dot monitor, 16,2 Mp. CMOS sensor, standard ISO from 100 - 6.400 (extendible to 25.600) and 1080p full-HD movie mode with continuous AF.
Again, as predicted by Nikon Rumors, today Nikon launched its new entry level D3100 DSLR with almost exactly the same core specs as rumored.The surprise for me, however, is that the D3100 includes GPS support, a novelty in entry level DSLR's and a feature which is - coincidentally - supported in the new Nikon View NX2 software with excellent Google Maps integration.
With 2010 recently started, and many of us awaiting at least one important Nikon launch this year, I’m looking back on a decade that has seen jaw-dropping advancements in photography hardware.
My Nikon wishlist: D700+MB-D10, AF-S 14-24 mm f/2.8G, AF-S 55-200 mm. f/4-5.6G and Sandisk Ducati 4 Gb. CF plus firewire card reader.
