The teaser appears on the Nikon Imaging Web site. Judging by the pixel count, the camera will be a replacement for the 6-megapixel D70s and lower end than the existing 10-megapixel D200.

The new model combines "quality and affordability to meet the demands of passionate photo enthusiasts," the teaser said. The teaser said "20 days to go," meaning an Aug. 9 announcement is likely.

Nikon's ad in Europe gives a more precise countdown with 19 days.
