If those crazy kids at Nikon Rumors are to be believed, we're finally getting a good look at the long-awaited Nikon D800. Said to be "smaller and lighter than [the] D700," the report states that the 7,360 x 4,912 (36-megapixel) DSLR will feature 1080p (30/25/24) and 720p (60/30/25/24) video recording, a slightly larger display, video quality "better than D3s," autofocus identical to the D3 and D700, and slots for CompactFlash and SD memory cards. The photos here show an extended battery module and a new movie mode / live view switch on the lower right next to the viewfinder (sort of like the D7000). The post does not give a release date, but as we've reported before it is expected to make the scene in Japan on November 24th for ¥300,000 ($3,900), and the timing of this leak would seem to bear this out.
