D3X on its way? - Rumours are rife that Nikon are soon to release the D3X.

Nikon logoThere has been speculation recently that Nikon are soon to release the D3X. These rumours have been started or possibly fuelled by a recent firmware upgrade for the Nikon D3, that was published by Nikon then mysteriously removed.

The firmware upgrade mentioned in its suitability list the not-yet existent D3X, fuelling speculation that the model was soon to be released. Days later, the firmware was removed - possibly for these reasons.

A thread posted by a user on the Nikon Watch site said that the new D3X will be based on the body of the D3 but feature a new TIMOS (Time Interpolated Metal-Oxide-Semiconductor) that will triple the amount of pixels resulting in a 38.7Mp camera.

The thread also stated that the price of the camera will remain unchanged and that its release is expected for September of this year.

When asked to deny or confirm the rumours, Jenny Grace at Nikon stated that “Nikon strive to observe customers’ evolving needs and to develop suitable products for their requirements. However, Nikon is unable to comment on the development of any future products before their official announcement.”

Nikon are renowned for releasing a low-resolution camera (e.g. D1 and D2H) and following it up with the X version of that model approximately a year later. With this in mind and the recent release of the D3 in August 2007, the rumours of the D3X seem even more likely.

Nah. That would incur the wrath of the Canonista Ian - use of the 'MkIII' demarcation would be considered sacrilegious and a hanging offence.

The main story is not that they will release one, but more that it's already on the way possibly. Smile
