Nikon D820 to Feature D5 Autofocus System
Outwardly, things have been extremely quiet at camp Nikon so far this year, but you can bet that behind the scenes it’s business as usual developing the latest and greatest cameras and Lenses.
The D810 successor, aptly (so far at least) named the D820 will be a key release for Nikon this year, taking the fight to the likes of the EOS 5D Mark IV and the EOS 6D Mark II when it arrives later this summer. So far we speculate that the following will be features of the new camera:
- Announcement rumored for this summer
- Most likely it will be called D820 (D850 is still a possibility)
- Nikon is already planning the marketing material for the new camera
- The sensor will be between 45-46MP
- The D820 is expected to be better at low and high ISO compared to Canon and better than the D810
- The D820 could come with a new and improved version of SnapBridge
- No built-in GPS
- Tiltable LCD screen just like the D750 and D500
- The memory card slots will be the same as in the D500: one SD and one XQD
And we can now add to that the possibility that the D820 will use the Multi-CAM 20K 153-Point autofocus system from the Nikon D5, super fast and super accurate!
We are quite excited about the D820 over here at RDC HQ as all this talk of the DSLR being dead is getting a little boring! Bring on the new breed of ‘midrange’ full frame DSLRS!
