Nikon D700 digital SLR announced

Posted 2/07/2008 at 6:32 PM
Nikon has today announced the D700 digital SLR camera. Featuring the 'full frame' FX type CMOS sensor, the D700 fits between the top-of-the-range Nikon D3 and the Nikon D300 cameras.

Key Features:

  • 12.1 megapixel 'FX' format CMOS sensor
  • Expeed image processor
  • Up to ISO 6400
  • Scene recognition system
  • 51-point auto-focus system with 15 cross-type sensors
  • 5fps continuous burst or 8fps with the multi-battery pack
  • 0.12sec start-up time
  • 40ms shutter release lag (CIPA standard)

It's a beauty, and will certainly provide competition for the aging Canon EOS 5D.

The camera will be officially available as body only with RRP of $3999. Stock is expected by the end of July, though this will be initially limited.

Please note also, that the FX format sensor means limited functionality with existing DX-type Nikon lenses. The effective resolution of the camera will be dropped to around 5 megapixels due to sensor cropping.
