Nikon D4 DSLR will feature Thunderbolt technology

Thu, Mar 17, 2011


The upcoming Nikon D4 camera will reportedly be the first DSLR to support Intel’s new Light Peak technology which might be better known as Thunderbolt.

I received a rumor that Nikon D4 will be the first DSLR to offer Light Peak connection (high speed optical cable interface offering 10 Gbit/s). The new MacBook Pro models that will be announced tomorrow are expected to have this technology (Apple calls it Thunderbolt).

I received this rumor few weeks ago and decided to post it today after I learned that the first computers with Light Peak are just around the corner. Intel is expecting Light Peak peripherals to become available in 2011

    Sorry but “Nikon Rumors” is infamous in the Nikon community for being quite “full of it”… They surfaced just a few years ago and have less than a 10% accuracy rate…

    Relying on the veracity of this “rumor” is akin to relying on Charlie Sheen to offer you career advice…
