WTF! D5100 offers 1080 at 30 and 24. Apr 5. 2011 | Comments (0)
My point exactly, the newly announced D5100, http://nikonrumors.com/2011/04/04/nikon-d5100-and-me-1-us-msrp-prices.aspx, This new camera is using presumably the same chip as the D7000. Same number of megapixels, it just makes sense right...??? This just proves the D7000 could be upgraded with firmware. Come on Nikon, give us some 30 p love!Also, I'm not an engineer, so I can't really say that data rate is the only factor here, but here are some calculations.The D7000 does 24p at 1080 it comes out to about 2.6 mbps. At 720 24, it is around 1.2 mbps. That is less than half. This tells me, if it can handle 1080 at 30, than it should be more than capable of handling 720 at 60! Get the word spread on this! Lets get more signatures, and make Nikon notice! Lets get a firmware upgrade!Hey, while we're at it, don't mean to be greedy, but lets get that nice new 102,400 Iso option too!
