Nikon D3 now discontinued

CameraTech is now certain that the Nikon D3 (or D3H) has been discontinued.

Previously, we have speculated, and alongst those reasons now stands this recently released comment from Nikon Canada referring to the availability of the D3S (or D3-s; not to be confused for the plural of the D3) in Canada:

“Dealers are currently fulfilling orders of the D3s against deposits. We do not anticipate any shortages of the D3s with the possible exception of higher than anticipated sales through the December period. If this should happen, there may be a one-week shortage.

There is no requirement by Nikon Canada for a form to be signed stating the camera will not be re-sold. People are possibly confusing the original D3, which was in extremely short supply.

The last line (highlighted in bold above) indicates that the D3 is in extremely low stock; almost certainly due to a discontinuation of the product.

Note that this has not been officially confirmed by Nikon, and the D3(H) still is listed on the Nikon (USA) website.


Update: cameratech resuming

Since the technical problems over a month ago, CameraTech has been down; primarily due to several staff resigning. As a result, we have unfortunately not been able to report on much. We have been going through several changes, majorly including changes in staff, and now can confidently resume. However, we resume our reporting by tomorrow (5th Dec).

Further to that, on a side note, one of our staff members has written an article in Digital Photography School. The article is here.

We apologise heartily for all the inconvenience and hope you will resume reading.

Note: CameraTech is still looking for one more staff member. To help, please contact us.


Update: CameraTech back on the net

Due to technical problems, we have been unable to contribute to CameraTech for the past week or so.

As such, we do not have the news from the last week in individual updates.

However, a recap over the last few days:

– Olympus EP2 has been leaked. Will be officially announced some time next week (it looks to be November the 6th)
– Nikon released its Learn and Explore application for the iPhone and iPod Touch. Available currently to only the US, it provides images, video/audio lectures and commentaries, as well as articles from the Nikon World magazine
– Phase One released its Capture One 5 PRO RAW conversion workflow software. New features include the Focus Tool and Focus Mask. It also includes a new ‘Skin Tone’ enhancer for smoother skin tones, more metadata fields, adjustments for individual colour channels and the ability to add vignetting. It is available to the US only from the Phase One website for an RRP of $399
– Panasonic’s eight annual competition opened for entries; the theme is ‘visualise (visualize) music’. Winners get a DMC-ZX1 each month, and the ultimate winner gets a DMC-GF1, with two runner-ups receiving a DMC-FZ38 each. It closes on April 30th, 2010
– Tamron released a 17-50mm f/2.8 Di II VC zoom targeted to APS-C sensor cameras for Canon
– SanDisk Memory cards now offer up to 32GB capacity
