Nikon Announces Six Megapixel Prosumer Digital SLR

Last week, Digital Photography Review reported that Nikon announced the D100 digital single lens reflex camera. According to the article, "The new D100 digital SLR is based on the popular F80 film SLR. The D100 features a six megapixel sensor (1.5x field-of-view crop / focal length multiplier), ISO 200 - 1600 sensitivity, three colour modes (inc. sRGB & Adobe RGB), pop-up flash, five area AF, AF assist lamp, 3D Matrix Meteringplus full Nikon F mount lens support." The D100 is designed to by sold at the high end of the hobbyist market, also known as the "prosumer" niche.

If this camera comes out at any price below $1500, it will cause a lot of serious digital camera hobbyists to rush out and buy it. No word on the estimated retail price, but it is expected to be available this summer.
