Nikon D3
Nikon D3 

The Nikon D3 DSLR - Nikon finally goes full frame.

Just like with the new Nikon D300, I can't say much about this camera yet because it is not available until November (2007). The obvious advantage of this camera is that it is full frame format so lenses will once again perform just the same as when you were using 35mm film SLRs, other advantages are larger sensor sites for the same resolution than DX format SLRs which should give better performance in relation to dynamic range and high ISO noise.  If I do manage to get my hands on the Nikon D3 before November, I will write a full report. In the mean time here are the main features and specifications. Time to start drooling and saving your pennies (better make that some large denomination bills).

The Nikon D300 DSLR is now my choice for the best Pro-Am Digital SLR camera.

I can't say much about this camera yet because it is not available until November (2007), but I have used the Nikon D200 for several years and the improvements are significant. Resolution wise it is only a few million pixels from 10 to 12 million pixels but the improvements in auto focusing, exposure metering, size of viewfinder, live view on the LCD, etc., etc. are so significant that any initial problems with the camera (if there are any) will be well worth it.
Nikon D40 Nikon D40

Why I think this a really hot camera and why I intend to buy one for myself as soon as they become available. (I did buy one and it is now my favorite lightweight take anywhere camera)

Nikon themselves are targeting compact digital camera users for the D40 DSLR. They would like these compact camera users to move up to the Nikon D40 DSLR so that for one, they can take better pictures in situations that the compact cameras do not handle so well. And they would also like to introduce the compact camera users to the world of interchangeable lenses and off-camera flash units. Article here .........
Nikon D80 Nikon D80

A lot of photographers are going to have a hard time deciding between this camera and the D200.

The typical Nikon D80 customer would be one who already owns a Nikon D50 or D70 (or maybe even a low end Canon DSLR) and is starting to get serious about his photography. He wants to buy into some expensive lenses (I don't like the new term glass) but feels funny about putting thousands of dollars worth of lenses on a "low end" camera. He also wants his photographer friends to know that he is getting serious, so he has to buy up to make the next step. The question is, should he spend roughly a thousand dollars on a Nikon D80, or roughly one and a half thousand dollars on a Nikon D200. Article here .........

Nikon D2H
Nikon D2Hs

Designed for photojournalists and sports/action photographers, D2Hs integrates the best technologies from its predecessors with an array of exclusive new innovations that deliver the speed, response and handling required for action photography.
The range of new features and enhancements in the D2Hs are based on extensive research and feedback from professional photographers around the world.  An all-new image processing engine in the camera produces images with higher quality, finer gradations and lower noise, while a newly refined exposure metering system improves on Nikon's hallmark 3D Color Matrix technology.  The D2Hs Auto White Balance and auto focusing systems have been fine tuned to deliver precise, accurate results and an enhanced buffer now offers continuous shooting at 8 frames per second for up to 50 consecutive shots (JPEG, FINE).

Nikon D2X
Nikon D2X

Designed as a truly versatile workhorse camera for many professional disciplines, the D2X blends for the first time the high levels of resolution commercial clients demand with superb image quality, color consistency and class-leading speed. The D2X delivers high image quality using brand new innovations that produce ultra sharp images with very fine gradations and smooth color transitions across the color range -- all while maintaining impeccable color accuracy, even when shooting under rapidly changing light. 

High resolution is achieved by an all-new 12.4 million pixel DX Format CMOS image sensor and a new image processing engine that works seamlessly with optimized systems throughout the camera.  Even with this tremendous resolution, the D2X can comfortably shoot full resolution images at 5 frames per second (up to 21 consecutive JPEGS and 15 NEFs).  When the situation demands yet faster frame rates, the D2X has a unique 6.8 megapixel 'High Speed Cropped Image' mode that boosts the shooting rate to 8 frames per second, up to 35 consecutive JPEGs or 26 NEF images, by cropping the number of pixels used on the sensor to create the image.

Review of Nikon D70

A trip to the Nikon D70 factory in Thailand

Designed for a wide range of customers, from novices to serious and experienced photo enthusiasts, the D70 will enable photographers to easily adopt digital technology into their existing camera system.

The new model will offer an exclusive selection of new features and exciting Nikon SLR technology that will surpass products within the evolving digital SLR market, and provide exceptional value at an estimated retail price of $999.00 for the camera body.

Nikon D2H

Nikon Spec Sheet

The D2H is the first digital SLR in the world capable of continuous shooting at 8 frames per second for up to 40 consecutive JPEG or 25 RAW (NEF [Nikon Electronic Image File]) full-resolution (2,464 x 1,632-pixel) images.

Performance is further enhanced by the remarkably short 37ms shutter time lag -- currently the shortest for a Digital SLR -- making the D2H as responsive as the Nikon F5 professional film SLR. Instant power-up means the D2H is ready to shoot as soon as you are.

Nikon D100

George Mann Review

This is many ways the ideal camera for advanced photographic amateurs and budget minded professionals. Also the ideal back-up camera for professionals using the high end D1x. The Nikon D100 is a 6 million pixel digital single lens reflex which uses the entire range of Nikon single lens refex lenses. Recent price reductions have brought the cost of the body down to a little over US$ 1,500.
