    Interesting place to put an LCD display on the side of the penta prism.
    What's it for?
    All my photos are taken with recycled pixels.

    not sure if thats a fake or not, but the side LCD makes sense to me

    when I am in the thick of shooting the camera is held close to my face but down towards the right, so a side LCD makes for quick glances a lot faster than in the usual spot where I have to turn the camera more to view it.

    Video timing, after all, that is the most important thing in a DSLR isn't it?

    That lens also looks interesting.

    it looks like the new 21-76mm f/2.8 Asph SuperED N VRIII AF-S lens that my uncle's sister's smartest son has leaked some info about!

    Of course I didn't believe him, as he's generally a deranged lunatic that incessantly chatters on about all manner of things he knows very little about ... but it looks pretty close

    If you know anything about geo position theory, 3 points of triangulation can give you a point of reference but is unreliable for precise information.
    It's subject to errors(of varying scale) .. and so for a more accurate picture, a fourth confirmation point is required.

    That's how GPS works and without that 4th sat signal, DOP values are too high to rely on for important work .. the fourth sat signal reduces all DOPs to within tolerable allowances.
    As all mid to top end Nikon cameras are GPS compatible, here at KAOS we only rely on four sources of signal for assured accuracy .. not the questionable 3 sources.

    And don't just assume that because it's called TRIangulation that you must only use three sources .. that's the second time someone has fallen for that trick this month!

    {Sigma}; ->10-20/4-5.6 : 50/1.4 : 12-24/4.5-5.6II : 150-600mm|S
    {Tamron}; -> 17-50/2.8 : 28-75/2.8 : 70-200/2.8 : 300/2.8 SP MF : 24-70/2.8VC

    For some reason I read this as strangulation, but then I read it properly .. and besides Nikon's a far too rugged to be strangled into oblivion

    Otherwise, are you suggesting that we all throw out our GPS capable Nikon bodies into space to create our own triangulation system, from which we get even greater terrestrial based geo positional accuracy?



    .. all this talk of triangulation is making me see double!

    Funny time of year for a release, middle of the Northern winter. But considering Nikon's devastating issues surrounding its manufacturing division, perhaps they have decided to just go for it, when it is ready, rather than use the protocol of a semi-regular cycle.

    Agree with Andrew, the prism LCD is probably a video related display.

    Early 2012 could be interesting, or Kiwi could be feeding us porkies...time will tell on both. We either get a great new flagship Nikon, or Kiwi goes down as a Daily Mirror worthy reporter.

    It is so Nikon have some sort of answer to the 1DX - after all, they don't want Nikonians salivating over the opposition now do they??

    I very seriously doubt that the LCD is a Nikon idea ... more like someone with too much photoshop skilz and time on their hands idea of a D4.

    I don't think Nikon would ruin the sculpture of the body just to place a silly needless LCD over a vital area such as the prism housing!

    I cant vouch for the picture, but Id be staggered if the D4 wasnt out very soon next year or Nikon will miss the boat with the Olympics etc and they will not let that happen.

    Well this was floating around on a european website... perhaps this is more realistic of a design for the new 4D
