I guess this week will be dominated by patents and guests posts… First, few patents (USD682338USD684203 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?
