According to NikonRumor’s sources , there’s new rumor about Nikon D5500 being the next replacement camera for Nikon D5000. I don’t get it. Why not name it D5100, just like Nikon D3100 as D3000 successor.
Anyway , it’s just a rumor .. anything can happen . Remember that rumors about Nikon D95 being D90 replacement ?
NR also has some info about its specs :
- metering and AF modules adapted from Nikon D3100
- (still) no AF motor
- new 1080 HD video recording with manual controls
- LCD screen can be detach from the body ( nicee.. )
- slightly larger body than the Nikon D3100
