  • Several photography websites were invited to visit the Nikon 1 factory in China. They were not allowed to take pictures and could only publish images given to them by Nikon:

  • Check out the Tamarkin's rare camera auction that will take place on Sunday, October 30. A black Nikon SP rangefinder is part of the auction (get the PDF catalog here)

  • Nikon has a patent (7138663) from 2006 about a color separation device of solid-state image sensor:

"A microlens condenses incident light to an opening. Light passed through the opening reaches a first dichroic mirror. The first dichroic mirror passes blue light and reflects green and red light. Only the blue light is incident on a first light receiving surface. The first dichroic mirror leads the green and red light to a second dichroic mirror. The second dichroic mirror passes the green light and reflects the red light. Only the green light is incident on a second light receiving surface. The second dichroic mirror leads the red light to a third dichroic mirror. The third dichroic mirror reflects the red light. Therefore, the red light is incident on a third light receiving surface."
