A new digital SLR
. Truly amazing in the sense that it sports a 13.89 megapixel
sensor in a 35mm SLR
-sized body, and will be sold for around $4,000 US. Expensive
? For someone like me who has to save up for a Canon D60
, it is. But for the seasoned pro, it is chicken-feed
for the performance. The camera debuted at Photokina 2002
a few weeks ago, and only a select few have been able to use it. Performance is supposedly quite fantastic though, in line with the rest of the Kodak DCS line of digital SLRs.
...and now for the specs...
Firewire port is standard to transfer those big TIFFs out of the camera. Sensor is made by FillFactory in Europe, and is a full 36mm x 24mm sensor, so no lens conversion factor!
Lens mount is a standard Nikon F-mount, so Nikon
Camera is due in the middle of February 2003, after many small delays, due to final tweaking of output and software issues.
