(SR4) Nikon D4 uses a new Sony sensor!

A couple of days ago I asked my sources if the future Nikon FF cameras will still use Sony sensors. They gave me all the same answer…YES! The upcoming new D4 will indeed use a new Sony sensor which will be “tweaked” by Nikon engineers. The same sensor will be used by the future Sony FF translucent camera that will be announced in 2012! I am not sure yet about the D4 sensor specs, I know for certain that Sony developed two sensors (probably a 24MPX and a 36MPX FF sensor). The current Nikon D3X (Click here ot see that camera) has a Sony 24 megapixel sensor which is "almost" the same as the one used for the Sony A900 (Click here ot see that camera). I hope to learn more about the new FF Sony sensors soon!

One more thing: I am working on new NEX-7 and A77 rumors. Stay tuned this week. There will be some cool news!!!

Reminder (SR = Sonyrumor):
SR1=probably fake rumor
SR2=rumor from unknown sources
SR3=50% chance it is correct
SR4=rumor from known sources
SR5=almost certainly correct!
