Take a look at "nikonusa.com" with all the new cameras. Hopefully Nikon has waited for photokina to announce the replacement for the D1X. I'm keeping my fingers crossed. Anyone have any thoughts on this?
Of course since my D1X is about two months old now it will only go to follow that it will be replaced by a 20 megapixel full size sensor that will cost less than $2000 . Oh yeah, and it will hold 50 shots in the buffer at 10fps.
Max shutter is a bit slow and flash sync at 125 a bit weak. It sounds like the body is basically patterned on the N80 though it clearly is designed from the ground up as a new camera. . . .and the beat goes on.
Free firmware upgrades and Dec. delivery - exciting stuff.
The most important item is that a close to 14Mpix camera is soon to be out. More than the previously guessed 12Mpix. So the technology is out there, independent of the Foveon approach. Again, this surely means the D2 is fast approaching and may very well have features beyond our expectations. Lets keep a close watch on Photokina, it could happen there. We are fortunate to have a team in place.
Well, I really like what I see from Kodak , I hope the camera preforms as well as what the specs say. Nikon has got to do something, they are getting really smoked right now. Its about time they had full-frame sensors its a long time coming it should have been like this all the way along. The camera companies just wanted to squeeze as much money out of people as possible using the digital revolution. Now is when it starts getting serious.
How can they be smoked having 2 other companies fighting Canon's a** off using Nikon's camera bodies and increasing Nikon's market for lens? When Canon thought it would take the market leadership with a 11Mp full-frame, comes Kodak with better resolution and half the price. better yet, packed in a Nikon body. sweet!

I think what Kodak is doing is great and that you can use Nikon lenes on it bonus! It makes me feel better because Canon is really putting a good product out there in the D60 and EOS 1Ds. Nikon still needs to put something good it compete and I know they will, but I really like what I see from Kodak.
By the way, Kodak built the body for the DCS Pro 14n. Nikon only supplied the mount and a few other little things
If only it had: 1) 8fps shooting rate 2) CAM1300 autofocus module from F5/F100
Still quite an announcement from Kodak. I guess 2002 will be the year that the full frame DSLR arrived in force (or more like 2003 which is when we'll see the cameras for sale). I wonder if Nikon was unwilling to let Kodak use the F5 or F100 as a base for the camera. I'm hoping this means that they have their own F5 or F100 based digital camera in the works.
