Nikon D750 DSLR camera to be announced in 10 days

Nikon D750 DSLR camera mockup

Another Nikon D750 mockup created by a reader (thanks broxibear)

A quick update on the Nikon D750 - the camera will be announced in approximately 10 days (around September 11-12th), which is right before the start of the Photokina show (September 16th). I can also confirm the 51 AF points. I have few other specifications that I may publish later today (still trying to confirm them). If you have any additional specs, please contact me.

Update: the actual announcement date will most likely be September 11th, since the 12th is a Friday and Nikon has never made any announcement on a Friday.

Creating spinning circular timelapse with Nikon DSLR camera

Creating spinning circular timelapse with Nikon DSLR camera 2

Artist and Nikon Ambassador for Lebanon, Alexy Joffre Frangieh (who painted his Nikon gear with military grade “Desert Mirage Lizard” paint) shared with us an interesting and challenging setup. His aim was to create a spinning circular image from within a leafless apple tree: creating a time lapse for use in a video artwork that will afterwards be displayed on a huge video wall (extract from the videoart can be found at the bottom of this post). You can follow Alexy on his website, Facebook, YouTube and Instagram.
