Reports Claim September 2015 Release of Nikon D400

Nikon D300

For many years now, photographers have thought that the Nikon D7200 and 7000 line in general hasn’t been a true successor to the Nikon D300s. While Nikon has stated that there will be no D400, an interesting forum thread was started on Fox2. The New Camera reports that it will sport a 24.3MP APS-C sensor at the heart.Additionally, it’s possible that it will have a 51 points AF system, ISO range up to 51200, and will also supports recording 4K UHD.

In some ways, it makes a lot of sense as Nikon has been pushing the megapixel count on their APS-C sensors–and so has the industry in general.

If a new flagship APS-C camera arises, it’s also bound to include tougher weather sealing and will perhaps be hyper targeted the way that the Canon 7D MK II was. That camera was really, really targeted at bird photographers–and those are the pros that really love their APS-C DSLRs and lens collection.

If the Nikon D400 comes in September the way that the reports are saying, then it will be right before Photo Plus 2015.
