Silicone skin for Nikon 1 V3 camera appears online *UPDATED*

Just EasyCover Silicone Skin for Nikon V3
Amazon Germany and Amazon UK currently have a listing for a Just EasyCover Silicone Skin for Nikon V3 (JU0467). Unless this is an error, the design shows that the new Nikon 1 V3 camera will not have a grip (the V1 also did not have a grip, but the V2 did). The in stock date is listed as January 2, 2014. Nikon is expected to have multiple product announcements around January 7th and in early February 2014.

Update: this Amazon listings is probably a mistake since similar cases for Nikon 1 J3 are listed on eBay.

Previously I reported that the Nikon 1 V3 is rumored to have a design similar to the Nikon Coolpix P-series (maybe closer to the Coolpix P330). The accessory port could also be replaced with a fully compatible flash hot shoe. The pop-up flash is rumored to be able to act as a wireless commander.

    Judging from the top this looks like it would fit the S1 rather than a new camera.

    this doesn’t look like it’s going to fit an EN-EL15 battery. 🙁

    I hope it really is this thin.

    I hope it really is this thin. I will finally be able to carry a V model with a pancake in a jacket pocket.

      my v1 + 10mm is pocketable already…

    I think it’s a typo. Looks like a skin for the current J3 !!!

    • whisky

      or just a placeholder …

    I think it supposed to say J3. If the V3 really gets that dumbed down, then I’m done with Nikon for good!!! This would clearly show that they spit in the face of their loyal customers to put it as bluntly as possible.

  • g.h.

    Took me all of 10 seconds to locate it on Google. It’s for the J3

    • I did search online, but this did not come up. I will update my post. The confusion was even bigger because of the January 2 release date.

    But the P330 is very much like the J series. If that’s what’s coming, I’ll keep the V1. Since the V1 I’ve been waiting for P7xxx-styled body Nikon 1. Maybe it’ll be the fixed lens version, to compeye with the RX100.

      The P330 is nothing like the Series 1. It’s a respectable effort by Nikon to improve upon it’s P310 predecessor, unlike the dysfunctional mess that is the Nikon 1 system.

    How about this for an idea, Nikon makes a Df camera with a CX mount.

    It would have all the dials people want and come in a silver/black or all black dress similar to the old Nikon rangefinders of yore.

      Then they could drop video too, the one strong point of the Nikon 1 series. Would not put it past them

    …all “new Nikon1 model” rumors and speculations aside – does anybody really use these (cam condoms)?

    Will this fix the dust and oil issue on the D600?

    • Spy Black

      Get a good sense of humor before making tired sarcastic remarks.

      • Mansgame

        You mean steal stuff from mad magazine? No thanks. #neverforget.

        • Spy Black

          For a guy with a name like that, you strike me as a woman scorned…

  • Gan Eden

    Get some C Mount cine lenses on it
