Facing the strong competitive pressure of Canon 5D Mark II, Nikon finally ceased production of their entry level full frame camera D700. At present D700 (body only) goes for 15300 in Chinese yuan, and further price hikes would be inevitable.
This rumor is coming from www.sina.com.cn, translated by google and then posted by nikonrumors. For us it doesn’t make any sense, it could be that the D700 production is suspended or maybe even the D700 is about to be discontinued.

Huge, impressive, and solid, haven’t described Nikon D700 overall, there are bunch of good things from this full frame gear which has lens from Nikkor AF-S 14-24mm f/2.8 G ED, 12.1 MP.
Another impressive feature is Nikon’s D-Lighting Mode that provides images with more details in dark areas. Mostly D700 are impressive, so i think the D700 is everything you would dream of having on a 5D but Canon didn’t give. What do you think ? [ Full Review ]
Yes, why do we need two separate devices, with all their separate lenses and add-on equipment to record both still and moving images?
A russian site recently released a program that allows Nikon D700 and Canon Liveview owners to record video with their DSLR. Nikon hacker Olivier Giroux, played with the software to make the D700 record video.
But anyway you should know what you are doing before you install it.
