Nikon, a major player in the Australian camera market, is set to go head to head with Canon with the release of a a pair of lower end DSLR cameras, which slot in between the entry level D3000 and the more advanced D5000.
One Nikon rumor from a more trustworthy sources claims that a replacement for the D90 is in development. Its upgrade path is slightly clearer as it could inherit more advanced sensor technology from the D300s or D3s and logical upgrades like 1080p video.
Both cameras will ship sometime within the “next few months.”
In the past, Nikon has held August introductions in the run-up to the Photokina show, held every other September, one of which is scheduled for September 21 this year.
