Nikon D700 replacement, D700x or D800 spotted during tests

February 17, 2010, By Atul Roach

The Nikon D700 was a camera that leaked countless times on the web before it made it to the market and that is what has made Nikon careful about its replacement which will probably be called the D700x or D800. So much has been the degree of secrecy maintained that not even a single spec about the D700 sequel is known and the experts have only been able to anticipate 720p video addition and that too because almost every other current Nikon DSLR has that feature.

Interestingly, photographers testing the sequel have been spotted in London and in Olympics host Vancouver, and the one caught in Vancouver took refuge in the crowd on realizing that he was being snapped.

Manufacturers of such top-notch cameras always take help of professionals to test out their upcoming cameras and the guy sighted with the D700 sequel in Vancouver was on the same job. Based on the feedback of such professionals, manufacturers fine-tune a product giving it the final form.

With a prototype caught testing, we now have hope that Nikon will release some details about the camera which until date remains a well-guarded secret. [via: Electronista]
