Could this be the Nikon PEN I asked for?
Compact camera with DX 12.3 MPx sensor.
Hours outbreaks distance from 28 to 85 mm, f/3.5-5.6 speed, stabilization sensors,
2.9-inch LCD for the 920-dot, Výklopný, head-up viewfinder, the internal flash
Telepredsádka 1,8 x
The above specs for the Coolpix P1DX are from a supposedly “leaked” Nikon 2009-2010 roadmap posted over at Nikon Rumors.
The story goes that the roadmap was leaked from an IT company in the UK that handles some of Nikon's software. It was translated to English (hence the bad grammar).
There is also a slew of new lenses and DSLR bodies including the D3000, D300s, D4, D700x, and D400 outlined in the roadmap. Check it out over at Nikon Rumors.
Back to the Nikon Coolpix P1DX.
Is it possible?
Could the P1DX be the Nikon “PEN” that I talked about in my post “Where is the Nikon Digital PEN?”
The fact that it appears to have the D90 / D5000 12.3 Megapixel sensor is a good start. The lens could stand to be a fair bit faster... say f2.8 to f4, or even a constant f2.8 if Nikon really wants to cause a stir.
All we can do now is wait to see what announcements are made from Nikon.
Maybe we'll see some leaked pictures of the P1DX soon!
