New Nikon D400 specs emerge

by Amy Davies |
If such a camera does make an appearance this year, it will no doubt have knock on effects for the rest of Nikon's range, suggesting that other cameras such as the Nikon D5100 and Nikon D7000 would also need to be updated.
However, a new set of specs have emerged which appear to show the D400 still very much in development and including a 24.2 million pixel DX format (APS-C) sensor - the same as that found on the Nikon D3200, the company's most recent entry-level introduction.

Some fresh Nikon D400 rumors
Keep in mind that the D5100 is also due for a refresh, that means that Nikon will have to announce another four DSLR cameras by the end of the year (D400, D600, D7100 and D5200), in addition to the D4 and D800.
The D3200 already has a 24MP sensor and there are not many upgrade options left for another three DX models, unless we end up with four 24MP DX DSLRs which is highly unlikely (the D600 is also rumored to have a 24MP full frame sensor).
