Nikon has officially announced two new SLR cameras that boast the “world’s highest effective pixel count.”

Rendering these ginormous images is a new Expeed 3 image processing engine and a 91,000 pixel RGB sensor.
On board there are plenty of settings, starting with an ISO range from 50 to 25,600. Additional noteworthy features include Time Lapse shooting, high speed shooting (at approximately 6fps), an on board Viewfinder, and a 51 point autofocus system.
The cameras share a body that can withstand dust and water without sacrificing peripheral connectivity, such as dual memory card slots (CompactFlash and SD cards) and a SuperSpeed USB3.0 port.
On the video front, both cams will record movies in Full HD resolution (1080p) in either FX- or DX- based formats. Nikon claim “the FX-based movie format offers a shallow depth-of-field with an emphasis on blur characteristics, while the DX-based movie format brings subjects closer when lenses with short focal lengths are used.”
Unfortunately Nikon Australia haven’t set pricing nor availability yet for the Australian market, but feel free to come back soon for an update.
