Nikon D90 sequel seen badged as D7000 with dual card slots

Nikon D7000 may launch pre-Photokina

Nikon's often rumored D90 replacement now has a name and possible extra features through leaks. After brief rumors that it would be called the D8000, Nikon Rumors now has it pegged as the D7000. The name is treated as certain and comes from the same outlet that accurately caught the D3100's name weeks in advance.

A more tentative but significant slip hints that the D7000 may follow the D3100 in bringing features previously only ever seen in a higher-end Nikon model. The optical viewfinder may get the 100 percent coverage previously only seen in the D300 and above. Similarly, it could get dual card slots like the D300, although it's uncertain if Nikon would return to including a Compact Flash card. Size and cost might dictate a second SD slot if true.

Few other details exist, but with the existence of the D3100, certain features are confirmed; the D7000 should record video at 1080p with continuous autofocus and should move beyond 12 megapixels for the first time. Also very probable are details rumored earlier, such as higher ISO 25,600 sensitivity, a 16- to 18-megapixel sensor and burst shooting as quick as eight frames per second.

No concrete unveil date is ready, but the D7000 is widely assumed to be getting a public airing before Photokina starts on September 21.
