Nikon Rumors is reporting some specifications for the upcoming Nikon D4. If the specs hold to be true, then it looks like the D4 will be giving the Canon 1DX a run for it’s money. I’ve listed some of the highlights below, but be sure to follow the link to Nikon Rumors for the full report.

Nikon recently announced the new SB 910 speedlight. It should be available sometime in December. You can pre-order one today for $549.00 on Amazon.com. More details below and as well as a link to Nikon’s product overview.
Nikon has released the following update regarding their operations in Thailand:
Ryan Emond shot a timelapse video in my hometown of Toronto using a Nikon D700 and a Dynamic Perception dolly. Many of the city’s landmarks are in the video including the CN Tower, Rogers Center, the Eaton Center, Kensington Market, and Honest Ed’s, to name a few. I particularly like the footage of the Rogers center (formerly known as the SkyDome) closing it’s roof.
It turns out that the flooding in Thailand has severely impacted the daily activities of hundreds of businesses, including 320 Japanese companies. Above you can see a chart which lists how Nikon, Sony and Canon have been affected by the natural disaster. The outlook for Nikon and Sony is particularly grim: “No prospect of recovery”. No word yet on how this will impact the availability of cameras and lenses.
The day after Nikon announced they have produced 65 million NIKKOR lenses, Canon made a press release stating they have produced 70 million EF lenses. Is it a coincidence that these notices were released so close together, or is Canon trying to steal Nikon’s thunder?
