The Nikon D800 is rumored to be getting a refresh later in the year, the D800s. As with most Nikon “s” cameras, the improvements are just that – improvements – not wide sweeping changes like new sensors.
The rumored specs for the D800s seem to follow that vein of thought, and actually look quite similar to the changes we saw between the D4 and the D4s. The announcement of this new camera is rumored to come late this year or early next year, possibly at Photokina in September or at CES in next January.
D800s Rumored Specs
- No low pass filter
- Improved software to suppress moiré
- Expeed 4 imaging processor
- Same AF improvements like in the D4s
- Improved low light capabilities
- 5 fps (more with the battery grip)
The price of this new D800s is said to be somewhere between the D800 and the D800E, likely around the $3,000 mark.
As with all rumors, especially early ones like this, the specifications need to be taken with a grain of salt. But, that being said, I don’t see these specs as anything that would fall outside of a normal “s” update, so they seem totally possible to me.
