Additional Nikon D750 specifications: 51 AF points, 8fps, 91k pixels RGB sensor

Nikon-D750-DSLR-camera-leaked-specs-rumors
I received this screenshot from a website I will not mention online in order to keep the privacy of the individuals involved. I believe that the person who posted that is very close to Nikon and that he/she is talking about the upcoming D750 camera (there is no other 24MP Nikon camera with 51 AF points). Here are the missing specifications that we did not have before (the text is translated):

Please note that this information is not coming from one of my source - it was found online and could be wrong.

I will open the comment section for guests, but if things get out of control again, I will quickly turn it back off.

Walter Chang (website | Tumblr | Instagram | Twitter) shares his experience on backpacking around the world for over 2 years and documenting his travels with Nikon equipment (first with D700 and then with D800, click on images for larger view):

Discovering what we call home

I started traveling when I quit my job back in September 2011 with the idea of roaming around South East Asia for three months. What would begin as a short break has eventually turned into two and a half years of traveling around the world in over 50 countries.

The one great thing about capturing my travels is being able to experience a lot of different types of photography. I’ll photograph landscapes on a multi-day trek and have to worry about what to carry in order to keep things as light as possible. Then I’ll dabble in wildlife photography on a safari in Africa, photograph the street life in bustling cities, and grab some starscapes while camping.
