    It’s shining like the T1000 Terminator 🙂

  • Rob Ellis

    Looks like a toy, eew.

    Here is the French “photokina” october 6-10th

    To see it in english click the UK flag on the top.

  • BenH

    So we’re not asking for mirrorless cameras but we ARE asking for crappy point and shoots and DSLRs with red paint?

  • It’s me!

    All I want for Christmas is a Ferrari Red D800!!!!!!

    NOT!!!! But guys you have to think also that this is a consumer product… it’s meant to atract amateurs and get them into photography.

    • WoutK89

      indeed, more people buying this camera, more money Nikon can put towards the development of the higher end cameras.

    • paf

      And they will accomplish that by …. color?

      • itznfb

        Look at all the idiots that buy Pentax just because they come in different colors.

        And by the way…. is that effing thing waxed? Why the hell is it so shiny?

  • Pre-ordered two of these babys, one for my 3 years old daughter, other to my 82 years old grandma! They love it!

    • The invisible man

      Liar, I’m sure they are both for you !

  • sam

    so whats uglier…this or the “black gold” D60?

  • I want a blue one. Maybe some Testors hobby paint will work?

  • kyoshinikon
    • this is the global Nikon Imaging website, is for the US


    ????When will a new DSLR come out??????


    • T.I.M


  • Cheap Chinese toy?

  • AnoNemo

    That’s what we call innovation. Now we know WTF the Nikon engineers were doing in the last couple of years. This is the end of Nikon. Let’s hope they will make camouflage D4, D800, and D400 as well with pink neck straps.

    • Up $#!t’s creek

      Do you think it’s that easy coming up with the right color of red? Just imagine how many levels of the corporate chain had to approve this.

      • AnoNemo

        My main worry is the tone of this red. I am not sure whether they can sell this in communist China.

  • Rob Nawrocki

    This is stupid. Stop making colorful cameras and give the D7000 60fps video already!

  • Fuzz

    I think it looks cool, I’m looking at buying a D3100 to use with a 35/1.8 as a nice carry everywhere camera. Providing this one doesn’t cost more than the black I’ll get one.

    I’d prefer my D300 to look like a toy, why do all cameras have to be the same boring black lump?

  • That’s so boring. Buy a Canon and be happy…
    Not One Single Comment from you that is Not repeaing the Same Song of the dying Company that once was so Great and now is only producing bs…


  • broxibear

    It’s on the UK blog
    And you can post what you think of it too…although I’m sure they’ll be vetted.

  • Steffen Hokland

    Holy f**k balls! This is probably the ugliest thing I have ever seen – short of my ex-wife.

    • J

      When was the last time you checked yourself from the mirror? 😉

      • The invisible man

        I’m glad I don’t have that kind of problem !

  • twoomy

    It looks like candy. I just want to eat it! NOM NOM NOM NOM.

    Now seriously… where’s my f*cking D700x/D800? I’ll take it in orange marmalade or blueberry if traditional black isn’t available please.

    • The invisible man

      I’ll take a D900 even if it’s write Canon on it !

  • Is this really all Nikon can afford to show?
    An old version of an camera wearing red pants??? Wooow…
    A fall of another japanese giant.. 🙂

    • The invisible man

      Don’t forget the earthquake, it may have delay what we were expecting….

      • damn, your right.
        Thx God I don’t have to worry about any quakes here.

        I promise to be patient since now!

  • ISP ©

    At this point if we have no news on Full Frame bodies it really doesn’t look good.
    We are almost half way in September and there’s no smoke… NOTHING, NA DA !!!

    I really think that we will see new interesting bodies in 2012.

    In my mind, after the mirror less couldn’t care less pony and cat show… it’s all over for 2011…
    Hope I’m wrong…. I really, really do ! But we should at this point have some very solid clues… and there’s nothing in the rumor mill…

  • venancio

    it’s okay, Nikon, i’ll let it slide… a long time ago i was watching a japanese anime series on tv and i could still hear the words “nikonnnn…. transform!!!!”… good old days, but i’d still prefer the you know what…

  • Rock Kenwell

    A product release like this normally would be just ignored, but when so many people are waiting for Nikon to produce something that they want, namely a new FX, then stupidity like this just makes people angry.

    The website’s name is NIKONRUMORS not NIKONMINUTIA. Maybe not every spec of $hit that falls out of Nikon’s a$$ should be reported here.

    Look at the posts, no one liked this, why even report it other than to piss people off.

    Maybe just post stuff that serious users are interested in. Just a thought.

    • Up $#!t’s creek

      unfortunately the site is not Nikon DSLR rumors, so we have to put up with this stuff.

      I agree there’s nothing special about this camera, but it does confirm that Nikon is still capable of releasing products without leaks, that we can assume for other product releases. but then again wtf would have believed this?

      • I disagree, the news here is that the red D3100 will be available in the US, something that we did not know before.

  • The invisible man

    Any idea for a good (and cheap) wireless lavalier microphone ?
    Thank you !

  • tom

    Ugly Betty…

  • The invisible man

    no incorrect French please !

  • The invisible man

    You know what ?
    I may buy one, who know ? Maybe I can sell it back on Ebay in 2020 for $5000 !

    • ISP ©

      LoL good one !

    • Rahul

      In the description at ebay, it would be written:
      1) Handheld:- Unlike the 2020 air-held cameras it is handheld
      2) Contact with lens required – Can’t operate with lenses which are not in direct contact with body
      3) Please note it is 14 ‘MP’ not 14TP

  • Ren Kockwell

    No one cares. I think stuff like this should be stuffed in a new part of this site called “Only check here if you want to be REALLY sexually frustrated…” You should have to pass through three walls of CAPTCHA in order to get to it, just so you don’t accidentally click on it.

    The main page should be reserved for lens announcements, and D800/D900/D4/D5 rumors.

    • crybaby

      Start your own rumor site and call it “super expensive nikon cameras that I really want so I can feel like I make awesomer photographs than you.” News Flash, not everyone is intersted in pro level FX cameras. Sure, be upset that all they did was re-release the D3100 in red, but to say that the site shouldn’t report on all Nikon Rumors is just idiotic.

      • Ren Kockwell

        I was just joking. By all means, take your D40 outside with your 18-55 and take as many pictures as you like. I never compared myself to anyone else, nor did I say anything about who I am as a photographer.

        • The invisible man

          @Ren Kockwell
          I know who you are, you are a pro photographer, you even have a website that say few hundreds times:
          “Nikon goofed the M/A switch” and “Nikon made the G mount to save money”
          And also as a living, you are runing a day care with bunch of kids.

  • Tony Bologna

    Can’t wait for the “Blue Steel” edition!

  • Dormant
    • NiknWontRepairMyGray

      Damn, so it is all NR’s fault. Nikon actually implemented that idea.

  • Phil

    I think it’s cool. I’d like my motorcycle in that color. Pentax still has Nikon and Canon beat ’cause the have not only multiple colors but matching kit lenses for the red and white models.

    It’s a consumer product guys, don’t get so bent out of shape over it.

  • Roarkatarl

    Looks tacky

  • Dandydon

    What about the catch light in the eyes. Even with off camera flash you will still have redeye.

  • The invisible man

    Maybe it’s made for the China market, they like red in China !

    • NiknWontRepairMyGray

      I heard they will be releasing a pink version for the french market. The men likes pink in France 🙂

      • The invisible man

        who care ? I’m not French ! (not anymore)

  • JimmyD

    Ugh, so this is what they’re spending their time on?

    Geez, I just want to see a D7000, but with a full frame sensor. Is that too much to ask?

  • Dweeb

    Ooh, Ooh – Ize so excited. Of course it’s tacky, they have no taste. I thought it would be bad but this is really tacky. Looks like those Big Daddy Roth Ratfink dragster model kit colours. You may quote me.

  • Wow, it looks very plasticky 😮

  • Worminator

    I like it.

    • Davix

      So i least they can expect to sell one of this color “upgraded” camera. muuuah

  • CamaMan

    It has begun!:-D
    Baboons ass shiny red!

  • Who Me

    News flash. Around 50% of the population is female. Shocking isn’t it? Do you want to increase sales to that demographic? Better offer up some color options then.

  • The invisible man

    et voilà ! tout en rouge !

  • Sean P.

    I actually got to demo one of these red Nikon D3100’s in Arkansas, and we can purchase them, so they are at Best Buy in the United States! I want it, I think it looks more sleek and cooler than a dull black. I am saving up for this.
