    Post Rob Galbraith: Nikon unveils D300s, D3000 digital SLRs

    Nikon has officially unveiled the D300s and D3000 digital SLR cameras. The D300s is a strategic upgrade that adds 720p video capture and a stereo mic input, 7fps burst shooting with the standard EN-EL3e battery, twin (CompactFlash and SD) memory card slots and several feature refinements to the D300 it replaces. The D3000 is a bigger departure from its D40 predecessor, incorporating a 10.04 million image pixel self-cleaning sensor, 11-area AF system, 3fps burst rate, 3-inch (diagonal) rear LCD and a new assist feature for novice photographers called Guide Mode.

    why D300s not D300x?
    Sound like following iPhone 3Gs.

    in nikon terminology, x would mean a high-res body of the orginial

    such as D1 followed with the D1x.

    Theres a d2xs, a d70s etc.I dun see anything wrong with the naming...As lomographer said,an "x" version would be about 24mp DX.for that kind of pixel density,it would be similar to 36mp FF iirc.Super high pixel density would require lenses with near perfect optics LOL...

    Technically yes.But not in todays digital world where the latest camera raises the bar both in terms of noise control and resolution.eg. 5D mk2

    yes of course but that takes time,

    and it won't be cheap due to them pushing the edges of photographic technology

    what we want is an economical and affordable camera

    "s" means small upgrade, just like D70-->D70s

    Agreed..
    CF still e way of the pro.
    my view is like merging D90 into D300..But for its hefty price tag wif the same unimpressed video mode. i think i still stick with my d300
    I turned PRO in diaper chg!

    ability to work in high or low temperature

    ability to stand dust, or extreme conditions

    and the ability to read data quick, and the hardiness of the card
