The 720p video at 120 looks awesome. Nikon has confirmed that they will bring 4k to their cameras but i dont know when. To be honest, what with the somewhat limited venus for 4k (who actually has the bandwidth to stream 4k) i would rather have super high speed video

Burst rate and buffer are still not good enough. Video is nice, but a high end Nikon APS-C body needs to do better for action stills.

Yes. It is odd that they have resisted so hard ever bringing out a D400 sequel -- a true pro APS-C camera. I guess they are afraid that it would cut into full frame sales.

Large screen TVs are going 4K, the image quality difference on large screens are quite visible compared to 1080p.

How many have the ability to edit 4K video? My experience with HD video is that you just get "higher quality" crappy unedited video flooding the interwebs.

Sorry to be so down on video. It has its place and it is fine for SLR companies to support it. I just find it much more time intensive (and computer intensive) to really turn out decent quality footage and having 4k would just make that harder, in my opinion.

What is it you could possibly be shooting where 16 frames isnt enough? If you want more there is always this

Nikon D4s - 172 shutter burst (RAW) - YouTube
I shot a MMA event where my k-3's 60 frame buffer in JPEG was barely enough. It's not about holding it down for 60 frames. You burst multiple times, and each time is maybe 1-3 seconds and it adds up very quickly.

I was watching the video on this post, where they were taking images of downtown NYC from a helicopter. You can hear the shutters of the cameras machine gun along with large bursts taking long streams of images. So, I can see the need for large buffers in certain situations.

I think nikon is really missing the boat.
Canon's 7D mk2 is the same price as the 6D and both are selling quite well. Plenty of folks have multiple bodies.
Also Just because the camera is crop doesnt mean that they wont fork over the cash for expensive FX/L lenses.

I wouldn't call the D7XXX high end aps-c. That is the minimum I would want if I were purchasing a Nikon, right now I have a K-30. The D3xxx and the D5xxx are hardly worth much. Perhaps you are referring to the price? Lol =)

This isnt really much of an action camera the way i see it though. They are offering a lot at this price point. 120fps video is something that isnt usually seen in a non pro camera. In fact, i dont even remember seeing in a camera before, so this just might be a first but i could be wrong. It's also gonna inherit the tilting screen and built in wi fi. Also a 72 point af system, which should be awesome for action.. 16 raw and jpeg's isn't too bad. I dont think it's just a question of how big the buffer is but how fastas well. I doubt you would really need 16 shots in a row. If the buffer can empty itself a in a few seconds you should be fine. The original d7100 is great for action

Anyone who is going this on a pro level would just go for the d4s which can shoot for hours
