Are those the new Nikon 1 mirrorless cameras?
I guess this week will be dominated by patents and guests posts... First, few patents (USD682338, USD684203 and USD683779) that show different Nikon 1 camera designs. Could those be the new set of Nikon 1 cameras that will be announced in the next few months? All three patents were filed on March 6th, 2012. Maybe the small bump on the top of the first camera design is for built-in Wi-Fi/GPS?
Patent USD686272 is for a new Nikon 1 video light, similar to the prototype shown here:
Next are the latest Nikon 1 lens patents (1" sensor):
Nikon 1 11-28mm f/3.5-5.4 lens patent
Nikon filed a patent for a Nikon 1 11-28mm f/3.5-5.4 lens with VR (the current model doesn't have VR and the aperture goes only up to 5.6).
Nikon 10-47mm f/2.8-7 lens patent for 1" sensor
Next Nikon 1 patent is for a 10-47mm f/2.8-7 lens (Nikon currently has a 10-30mm f/3.5-5.6 VR II lens).
Nikon 40mm f/3.5 VR Micro DX lens patent
The last patent application is for a 40mm f/3.5 VR Micro lens for APS-C based cameras (Nikon currently has a 40mm f/2.8G DX Micro lens)
