This free website's biggest source of support is when you use these links, especially this link directly to it at Adorama the day it's annonced, when you get anything, regardless of the country in which you live. Thank you! Ken.
There is no Nikon D4x — yet, but the X models always come a year or two after the base model. Any idiot can summize that the D4X will use the 36 MP sensor of the D800E with added mechanics and processing power to belt these images out at a sustained 6.5 FPS.
It's easy to predict Nikon's new products, since they update them on a predictable schedule if you'd just calm down and look at history.
Looking at announce, not ship dates:
D1: June 1999.
D1X: February 2001 (20 months).
D2H: July 2003.(there was never a D2.)
D2X: September 2004 (14 months).
D3: August 2007.
D3X: December 2008 (16 months).
D4: January 2012.
Add 16 months to the D4's announce date, and we have the D4X scheduled for May 2013 announcement.
This is all easy to predict when you sit back and look at what Nikon's done in the past. For pro film SLRs, the interval between major updates has been 10 years ever since 1959.
Help me help you top
I support my growing family through this website, as crazy as it might seem.
The biggest help is when you use any of these links to Adorama, Amazon, eBay, Ritz, Calumet, J&R and ScanCafe when you get anything, regardless of the country in which you live. It costs you nothing, and is this site's, and thus my family's, biggest source of support. These places have the best prices and service, which is why I've used them since before this website existed. I recommend them all personally.
If you find this page as helpful as a book you might have had to buy or a workshop you may have had to take, feel free to help me continue helping everyone.
