Nikon D300s and D60 Sequel
Nikon's D300s and a replacement for the D60 could be introduced at two separate events if a claim made today is accurate. German photography publication Kamera & Bild says that separate press events on July 30th and August 4th will introduce each camera. No additional news about the cameras accompanies the supposedly confirmed launches.
The D300s is believed more a feature upgrade to Nikon's best crop-frame DSLR with 720p HD video, external mic support, better D-Lighting and a second card slot using SDHC. A D60 replacement would be more unusual, however, as Nikon already released the D5000 as its most recent low-end camera. The new model, if it exists, would likely be a competitor to Canon's Rebel XS and may take away key features, such as HD video or the number of autofocusing points, to reach a particularly inexpensive price point.
