    Hey, that’s the swedish M90 splinter pattern camo! (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M90_%28camouflage%29)

  • pancake

    Looks atrocious, especially that cammo look. The other ones remind me of the first affordable digital compacts in the 2000s which looked like try-hard futuristic designs.

    • Hommy Tilfiger

      They are for taking pictures and not for wearing as an accessory. For the latter, Nikon offers the Df in two colors.

      • pancake

        Nikon usually designed decent cameras even before the DF, yes, can you believe it? Decent designs existed before the failed retro-DF? I know, un-fuckingbelievable!

        “They are for taking pictures and not for wearing as an accessory”
        lol. Nikon, meet Leica. :)

    • Mansgame

      Yeah the cammo looks seems like a very bad idea if you drop the camera in the any body of water that’s not a swimming pool.

  • Neopulse

    Glad Nikon is coming out with the consumer products now. It’s great. And admin, when will the “lens only” rebates sale be going on in the end?

    • http://nikonrumors.com/ Nikon Rumors

      Check back here Saturday at midnight or Sunday morning.

      • Gary

        Will these rebates be USA only, or will Europe get them as well?

        • http://nikonrumors.com/ Nikon Rumors

          US only

          • Kynikos

            Is this the leak, or is this when they go live?
            Cheers.

            • http://nikonrumors.com/ Nikon Rumors

              The new lens rebates will be only for the US and they will be live at Saturday night (midnight.)

      • Neopulse

        Thanks for the quick repky admin.

  • jp

    Said to see that it does not have D800 sensor and AF system.

    Nikon Japan released a load of new videos about the AW120 and P340…

    • broxibear

      P.S I like these Nikon Japan adverts…nice feel to them.

      • TxPhotoFan

        I like them too. Would be great to see videos like this for the US market.

    • http://nikonrumors.com/ Nikon Rumors

      I will add a link to those videos. Thanks.

    • Morris

      hope at CP+ they have other new stuff then :)

      • broxibear

        Hi Morris,
        The spotlight might be shining somewhere else at CP+ with other manufacturers bringing out new models. It’s possible they’ve kept something big really quiet and are going to surprise everyone at CP+ with it ?…but that’s not the Nikon way.
        Nothing against McNally, Jarvis etc but I hope Nikon get some other talent from other countries to show the D4s and it’s capabilities. It would be a breath of fresh air to see a brilliant photojournalist or wildlife photographer who isn’t an “internet name” to show the D4s and what it can do in the right hands.

    • saywhatuwill

      Thanks for the video. I hate to say this, but why use this little camera when she already has a camera phone and why would she choose this over the phone? Maybe she answered that in the video since I don’t speak Japanese.

      • broxibear

        Hi saywhatuwill,
        Better image quality in a compact and options you don’t get on your phone.
        I’ve got a reasonable camera in my phone, but I still carry around my GF1 with 20mm f/1.7. I find taking pictures with my mobile a pain in the ass, it’s awkward to hold, no proper buttons etc. I use it if I need a quick snap of something.
        I don’t speak Japanese either, but that’d what’s interesting about these videos too. You get a sense of the person enjoying using their camera, you don’t need to understand the words. Enjoying using your camera is a big part of it, that’s why people prefer certain cameras over technically better ones…it’s how it feels when you’re using it.

      • LarryC

        I agree. For taking the kids to the park or family events, OK, but who carries a separate camera, or needs IQ, just to take pictures of items in a store or flower arrangements? Cell phones do that very well.

        • Spy Black

          Because these cameras blow the doors off a phone camera. I can’t speak for that Nokia thing, but other than that, no comparison.

    • Spy Black

      The P340, like my Canon S110, are the best price/performance compacts out there. I don’t think my S110 has a BSI sensor, so the P330/340 cameras will probably edge it out. These are cameras that are always with you, and 99% of the time you can shoot available light. Just make sure to turn you noise reduction to low. Unless you need Wi-Fi, if you’re looking for a compact like this, the P330 is a great deal right now for $197.

  • Mac Rockwell

    Zero innovation whatsoever.

    • guest

      I agree, these cameras look horrible and offer no innovation to their predecessors at all.

  • lorenzo

    As it isn’t mentioned in the specs I guess Nikon was smart enough and ended up removing the GPS fiasco from the Coolpix P340.
    Now it has to be seen if this one also randomly freezes like the P330.
    The rest is identical as the price. They are just good as hiking toys.

  • TxPhotoFan

    The P510 has been a very nice bridge camera and I am happy to see this new P600 at 60x zoom . Lots of casual birders, wildlifers, and vacationers will enjoy it, especially when you don’t want to haul around the SLR + lenses (and you can’t get that kind of zoom without lots more weight and cost with an SLR lens). I’ve gotten some very nice shots with the P510, even handheld and handheld at full digital zoom (VR works great) but still wanted more reach.

  • Guy With-camera

    Is this supposed to COMPETE with GOPRO? WHAT THE F&CK is nikon DOING?
