Nikon developing D10 camera?

Nikon D10 in development?

Nikon may be in the middle of developing a new camera series, rumors suggest. These are based on the release of the MB-D10 battery grip for the D300, an add-on that lets users both insert extra batteries and shoot with special portrait-ratio controls. Nikon grips have traditionally used a naming tied to a principal camera; the D200, for instance, must use the MB-D200. The MB-D10 may thus be foreshadowing a namesake camera, which would likely be announced ahead of the Beijing Olympics in August -- a critical event for both amateur photographers and photojournalists -- or at Photokina in September, one of the industry's largest tradeshows.

If the D10 exists as a camera it is expected to fall in between the D3 (pictured), Nikon's top-of-the-line, professional camera, and the D300, also professional but cheap enough for wealthy amateurs. This is based partly on the naming of Nikon's low-end D40 and D50 SLRs, but also on Canon's EOS-5D, which occupies a middle space between the high-end EOS-1D Mk. III and mid-range EOS-40D. A D10 would therefore likely have a full-frame sensor, and a megapixel rating higher than the D300's 12.3. [via Photography Bay]
