    Nikon D300s



    Rumor for now.... But it looks like it's the real thing.

    same sensor size? I think Nikon is not developing new sensors. I was hoping that if this is true the resolution would be somewhere between 15-16MP. Time to save for a second body.

    Better ISO Performance is my wish for this model. Video capability?

    AF-D(50 1.8)
    AF-S(18-70)

    yup, HD capability with (it seems) auto-focus in "tripod mode".

    IMO, I think its better for Nikon to stay below the 15mp mark for a cropped sensor. more pixels on a small sensor can increase noise since the pixel pitch will be much smaller to fit that sensor. besides...12mp to 15mp is really not that big of a jump. better keep the ISO performance at a good level than sacrifice it for resolution

    I agree. I can make Hi res pictures by stitching em pictures together.

    Re: Nikon D300s

    i couldnt think of anything more that Nikon could add up to the present D300 than a better ISO performance or video perhaps if you look at it, the D300 clearly represents the peak of any APS-C size camera out there. No offense to 50D owners Weathersealed, Ergonomics, 100% VF Coverage, good ISO performance and an AF System that can even give the D2x a run for its money. Nikon will be hardpressed to come up with a replacement for this.

    Re: Nikon D300s

    If this is true, I don't get it why not just improve the ISO performance (at least at par or better than the D90) even with the same pixel count. I found the 12mp simply enough. Printing at 8R or much bigger is a non-issue (also there are fractals or Alienskin Blow-up software that can do proper sampling enlarging for very large prints).

    The movie feature would be a nice to have, but not really a reason for me to rush out and buy one.

    One thing that doesn't add up here is the resolution: 3216 x2136? That's only 6.8mp right (if my math is correct)? And it reads Raw+Fine (so it should be adding up to 15mp right). Hhhhhmmmm....

    Sir, I think the image size is medium, hence the M symbol beside the resolution.
