36mp... geez you'd kill some memory card space pretty quickly.
Yeah I saw that rumour before....36MP is crazy! I hope theyve got the naming wrong and that is actually the D4x instead for the studio and landscapes. I doubt they can handle decent ISO performance with such a large resolution jump...plus I can only think of a handful of my lenses that are going to produce nice clean images at 36MP
yeah usually the Dx line gets the new flashy sensors first...
36MP not that crazy for FF. pixel pitch would be alike to a 18MP DX
16mp actually. 36/(1.5^2). Sounds a bit like the d7000 sensor cut larger. It's probably cheaper faster for them to cut larger rather than design a new sensor.
Except that the D7000's Sensor is from Sony (the same one as the A55 and Pentax K5), not like the Nikon derived 12MP FF sensors in the D700/D3/D3S
And given what Sony are doing with the NEX and A mount, i can't see Sony making this (no Flippy mirror Alpha cameras, can't exactly see a FF SLT in the works as a replacement to the A850/A900)
I thought all Nikon sensors were made by Sony, is that not the case?
no one knows for sure; it's really just speculation. i think the real answer would be more that the sensors are a "derivative" of the sony made ones, with a lot of R&D of their own.
Try reading the sony rumour sites Next year will be very interesting for FF releases.
nikonrumors is 99% certain D800 will be 36MP
Anyway. http://digicame-info.com/2011/09/d800d7003600.html are Sony users...lol
So that means that the 5D3 will be what? 72MP? :tongue:
D900 will have 108MP and the 5D4 will have 216MP
Some of the confirmed specs are looking pretty delish, but why would they include facial recognition? Unless it's for AF tracking in movie making mode, I don't really see the point...
That's why. It's a very simple part of contrast-detect autofocus that already exists in the D7K.
Yeah I thought it was a little odd how Nikon claimed that the D7k was a %100 Nikon sensor but then the K-5 came out with another 16MP Sony sensor.
When I first started looking at DSLRs to buy, the fact that Canon had more to do with their sensor design and manufacturing appealed to me more than Nikon but after a while it didn't seem important.
Plus I read after a while that Kodak made the M9 sensor, or at least designed it.
Yet they can't make a point and shoot camera that is any good.
I have an old Kodak EasyShare damn it! :upset: :lol:
IR have their studio samples posted - including a full suite of ISO tests: http://www.imaging-resource.com/PRODS/nikon-d4/nikon-d4A7.HTM
You can compare the D4's performance against other models using the comparometer: http://www.imaging-resource.com/IMCOMP/COMPS01.HTM
Versus the D3s @ 12800 I'd say the D4 holds more fine detail, although perhaps a little more chroma noise.
RG also has some write speed & burst depth tests with XQD & UDMA 7 cards.
Unsurprisingly, XQD comes out on top in both.
It's still a little concerning that neither San Disk or Lexar have committed to XQD at this stage.
Also in the article is a run down on Ethernet performance. This is disappointing for two reasons, a) its only 100Mbps and b) The D4 can only manage about half of the bandwidth available. Hopefully a firmware update can fix the latter problem.
Lastly, photozone have their review of AF-S 85mm 1.8G on FX. Its a winner :thumbup:
grave digger much????
