Evidently it is a fashion photography only camera.

Yes, that was a weird teaser. IF the camera turns out to be a 100 megapixels, then maybe the fashion shoot makes sense. But I think Nikon needs an A1 equivalent a lot more than they need a high meg camera.

Fashion photography needs a 100 megapixels camera?? Really? Since when? What for?

This other rumor, which is probably pretty close to the truth, says 45megapixels.

More

But we don’t do rumors here, do we.

Well, since the fashion industry is the number one consumer of Phase One 100 and 150 megapixel systems, clearly they think they need it ;)

So out of curiosity, I did a quick Google and found this link on what cameras fashion photographers use:

Fashion Photographers

Not sure how up-to-date it is. I'm sure it doesn't include all fashion photographers around the world.

And I'm pretty sure that even if all the 100 megapixel plus Phase One systems are bought by fashion photographers, it does not necessarily mean all fashion photographers use 100 megapixel cameras. Certainly those use Phase One have very good reasons for it. Or they could just be sponsored :)

It's probably because it's the only genre of photography that pays enough to allow those photographers to use them and actually still show a profit ;)

Of course they do....it's so they can find all the blemishes that they can later photoshop out... :lol:

I hope for Nikons sake, they knock this one out of the park. If not for their large following and brand name, I'm not sure how they can survive in the industry.
