Nikon large sensor mirrorless camera is a possibility

Similar to the answer Nikon executives gave to AP in an interview last week, Toshiaki Akagi (Department Manager in Nikon’s 1 Designing Department) told dpreview that a new large sensor mirrorless cameras is a possibility in the future:

“We know that there is a certain body of demand for larger sensors in mirrorless products. Although we already have the 1 inch sensor in the 1 System, we don’t want to deny the possibility of future large-sensor mirrorless cameras. So maybe if there is enough demand we may be able to provide another type of mirrorless camera with larger sensors. This is one of the solutions.”

Few other points from the interview:

  • 4k video is coming to the Nikon DSLR lineup
  • “You can expect some new DX lenses in the future. We haven’t forgotten about our DX customers”
  • Nikon is still “studying the demand” for a D300s replacement
  • Nikon is also “studying” the possibility of a D3X successor (D4s body with a high MP sensor)

Update: Nikon D750 now in stock at Amazon.
