Some entirely too ingenious hackers have found a reference to the rumored D3X deep within the bowels of Nikon's D3
firmware. The reference includes a list of resolutions available to the upcoming shooter, and it's apparently set to max out at a potentially Higgs Boson-inducing
24.4 megapixels. Word has it that this sensor is likely a variant of the megapixel monster behind Sony's upcoming A900
, but since this is all being extrapolated from a few numbers hidden in some firmware, we're going to try not to get too ahead of ourselves at this point.
