Update on the secret Nikon iOS project

apple-logo Nikon-logo
Few weeks ago I reported that iOS engineers were working on a new secret project with Nikon USA at the main Apple campus in Cupertino. Here is an update: there will be a new iOS app (I presume from Nikon) that will add special/new camera features through Wi-Fi. For example, you will be able to purchase new features (filters?) from the app and they will be added individually to compatible cameras based on an upcoming firmware build. Not sure if this will be for the Coolpix line or it will include also DSLR models.

    I was hoping that this might mean the ability to grab .raw files. These micro transactions better be coolpix line features didn’t buy a D7200 to buy random filters on my phone.

      I work at home, working some simple jobs that only requires from you a PC and internet connection and it is a life-saver for me… After six months on this job and i earned total of 36,000 bucks… Basicly i earn close to $80 every hour and work for 3 to 4 h most of the days.And awesome thing about this job is that you can determine your own working hours and the payments are weekly.<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

  • Duncan Dimanche

    I will take a minute to express my thoughts so here they are : SIGH !

    • Andrew

      In principle this looks interesting, it would all depend on what features are added and how useful or innovative they are.

      • Exactly. If it’s like Sony — selling a few lame features that really ought to be included — then pass. But Apple’s actually helping out, I doubt it will be that lame.

        It could be something like you can create filters/shooting modes on your iOS device and then move them onto the camera (even that sounds pretty lame). Whatever it is, it presumably will demo well.

    • Jeroen Wijnands

      I will see your SIGH and raise a slow banging of head on desk.

    • jimh

      Exactly. Interesting to scan the comments here, and see absolutely zero interest in this announcement.

    • Wade Marks

      First, keep in mind that there is no announcement yet, only rumors. So it’s not like Nikon is setting incorrect expectations.

      Second, what IMHO would be most helpful would be to make it really easy to upload pics from camera to iPhone. I don’t think many people care about filters and other editing features on their camera, as that can be done once on your iPhone, iPad, or Mac.
      What people love to do is to take a picture and then quickly and easily share it through text message and social media like FB, Instagram, Twitter, etc.

      if people could take a really nifty dslr quality photo and then show that off very quickly and easily via iPhone sharing that would be phenomenal.

  • Eric Calabros

    I guess they are trying to make their own work easier, not ours. With this app they can update the firmware, and even charge for that, with much less effort

  • Cristian

    Absolutely useless….

  • whisky

    hmmmm. i’d pay to add focus peaking, GPS activation, electronic IR/UV/Hydrogen Alpha filters, focus alignment, and/or a host of other specialty features which might not normally make sense on a more competitively priced baseline camera. apps for cameras should be the way camera makers move forward.

    if this is indeed their intentions, it’ll be interesting to watch what features Nikon might offer us. JMO.

    • The big question is if this will be for Coolpix or DSLR cameras. For Coolpix we can expect filters and other in-camera image manipulation, but if they add this to DSLR models, we can expect some “more serious” functionality.

      • scott800

        I wonder if Nikon will have a stronger presence at WWDC next week, I’d imagine that is when exact details and dates will start to show up

      • JP

        Why use coolpix if you have iOS device?!

    • JK

      Except most/all those things involve hardware, so it seems pretty unlikely they’ll be available through an app.

      • Mr_Miyagi

        Unless, perhaps, the project is some form of tethered photography, where the advanced functionality is provided not by the camera firmware/hardware but by the iOS app on a mobile device (iPhone or iPad)?

        • Jareel

          h-alpha filter provided by iOS app? Much like whisky, you too clearly have no idea what you are talking about.

          • Mr_Miyagi

            Are you always a total jerk, or only when you can insult people anonymously when you have misunderstood what they’ve asked or written? The possibility of adding H-alpha photography was mentioned by commenter Whiskey, not by Admin. Admin did not offer any rumors about the specific camera features that might be implemented.

  • Spy Black

    I would have to imagine this is some kind of tie-in to the new iPhoto. Anything more involved so exclusively is going to backfire on them for alienating Android and Windows users.

    • El Aura

      If this allows you to get any picture taking with a Nikon to automatically upload to iCloud Photo Library, then this would be something worthwhile. If they could allow for example jpeg images to upload over cellular but the raw companions only over WiFi, that would be another useful thing.

      • Spy Black

        Yeah, but why kissing all the Apple ass when Google and MS have cloud storage as well?

        • Thom Hogan

          Nikon (and the other camera companies) are so late to the game and have no real position they can leverage, so that means you can’t get all the services to agree to work with you, you can only agree to work with all the services. While that seems like semantics, it’s not. I pointed this out to Nikon back in 2010: once you’re not in the driver’s seat you have to pick the vehicle you want to sit in.

          Trying to do “works with Apple Photos, Google Photos, Microsoft Photos, et.al.” from the get-go is an insane development project. You would have multiple vendors shifting APIs, schedules, resources, etc., as you’re trying to make something work with all of them. Thus, you pick a partner and go. At present, there are only two partners to consider working with: Apple and Google. Google is a bit of a problem for the camera companies because of Samsung. You risk having Samsung showing up with a camera that does something you can’t yet do.

          • Spy Black

            I dunno, MS is trying hard to Windows and Windows Mobile going, I’m quite sure they’d be quite cooperative to get gear working in their infrastructure.

            Google is an open enough system where you don’t have to worry about any one maker, because you’re in the driver;s seat. At least, if you want to be.

            You don’t see any other camera manufacturer going through this.

            • Thom Hogan

              We’re talking about doing something “special,” something above and beyond just making a connection to an OS in the normal way. You can’t do that with everyone at once.

              Sure, Microsoft is trying hard, but it just doesn’t have the market share yet to make it a mainstream target. Nikon is the #2 maker of cameras, it needs to stay mainstream, not try to push everyone to a small player in mobile.

              Google isn’t going to do something one-off with a single camera company, because that starts to sound the signal that Google no longer wants Android to be all things to all people and is playing favorites. Likewise, Google is a bit of a leaky ship in my experience. I’m not sure you could keep a top secret project partnership secret there.

            • Spy Black

              “Google isn’t going to do something one-off with a single camera company,
              because that starts to sound the signal that Google no longer wants
              Android to be all things to all people and is playing favorites”

              Um, so you think every camera maker isn’t going to object to Apple doing something exclusively with Nikon?

            • Thom Hogan

              I was speaking to the smartphone makers. The minute Google starts playing favorites in any way with Android, you’ll see the Android phone makers looking more closely at Tizen and Windows.

            • Spy Black

              Yeah, but this has nothing to do with phone manufacturers, it has to do with a CAMERA manufacturer playing favorites to a platform. Big difference.

            • Thom Hogan

              You’re not seeming to understand that there are two classes of players here, and they have different priorities.

              In terms of phone makers, Apple can make camera-maker specific arrangements if they wish without really pissing anyone else off except other camera makers ;~). Google can’t. Microsoft is somewhere in the middle, as it doesn’t have a lot of phone makers to protect plus Microsoft makes its own phones.

              From the camera maker standpoint, they probably want to do a deal with a phone maker. I suggested this to Nikon many years ago as being the ONLY smartphone play they really had.

              In theory, the camera makers would love to be phone agnostic (more possible connections and users), but in practice this is near impossible for them to execute. IF a camera maker were to get a full set of iOS/Android/Win10 connections, they’d never be able to hold that exclusively. But I doubt that any player, even Canon, is big enough that they could even pull that off in the first place.

              I’ll give you an idea of why: remember that Capture NX2 update to support Yosemite? Doesn’t work any more ;~). Apple deprecated the version number API Nikon was using, and Nikon didn’t notice. Nikon can’t even keep up with one OS, let alone three that are moving quickly, let alone defend that against other camera makers doing the same thing.

              Nikon SHOULD sidle up to Apple, IMHO. If they want to be perceived as the premiere camera brand, they should be linked to the perceived premiere phone brand.

              And again, in the Android world, Samsung is a problem. If Nikon were to manage to do something interesting in that space, Samsung will just copy it almost immediately. That NX1 is starting to look like a darned good camera…

            • Spy Black

              “…should be linked to the perceived premiere phone brand.”
              Wise use of words. 🙂

              We’ll just have to see A) where this all winds up and, more importantly, B) what EXACTLY this is really all about.

            • Henri De Vreese

              Yes, but what a lot of you don’t understand is that it’s very easy to make an app work on all 3 platforms. Not supporting a platform is just stupid and they will lose customers. If they would make this app extremely usefull for remote shooting, wireless NEF transfer,… on DSLR’s and not support Android/Windows, and Canon/Sony DOES support those platforms with a similar app, I will highly consider switching. (and I have about 20K worth of Nikon gear btw)

            • Thom Hogan

              “Lose customers” is an interesting notion when iOS is where most of the paying customers are.

              FWIW, your statement is another example of why the camera makers are hosed: you’re willing to give up your alliance with a camera maker to preserve one with your phone maker. You value your <1K phone higher than your 20k worth of Nikon gear ;~).

            • Spy Black

              “..when iOS is where most of the paying customers are.”
              Where do you get this from?

            • Thom Hogan

              Lots of places, including developer friends. Last report I saw that Android was about 47 cents on the dollar compared to iOS in terms of app purchases. That’s despite a larger installed base.

            • Spy Black

              So, no verifiable data. Didn’t think so.

            • Thom Hogan

              Do a Google search, please. First hit: “App Annie’s
              analytics had shown that in the first four months of 2012, iOS was
              responsible for about 71% of app revenue generated, as compared to just
              29% for Google Play.” Second hit: “The above graph, from Lookout’s App Genome Report,
              shows the percentage of free vs. paid apps for both Android and iOS.
              You can see that in Feb 2011, almost 66% of Android apps are free, as
              opposed to about 34% of iOS apps.” And the hits just kept coming… Maybe you’ll even find headlines like TechCrunch’s “Apple And Google’s App Stores Now Neck And Neck – Except On The Metric That Matters Most To Developers: Revenue”

              If you really wanted to know, you could just buy a subscription to App Annie yourself (or one of the other trackers that have appeared).

              I phrased things the way I did because this is a shifting play field. It’s changed a bit every year. But the net effect is still the same: if you want to pull revenue, you’re likely to pick iOS first simply because of the metrics on purchasing.

            • Spy Black

              One source is not the be all, end all confirmation to go making such a sweeping statement, sorry.

            • Thom Hogan

              I gave you three of many sources I found with one simple Google search. How many do you need before you’ll be satisfied? Frankly, I’m not going to do the work for you at this point. Believe what you’d like to believe. Just like Nikon ;~).

            • mikeswitz

              You can find a multitude of sources by doing searches in WSJ or Yahoo Finance or SiliconValley.com, who just posted an article about Androids bleak future despite the number of phones sold. No one is buying apps which is why Android does not make nearly the money that iOS does.
              Don’t let your over-the-top dislike of anything Apple cloud good business sense. You and numerous other companies could have made a lot of money partnering with them. And that is why Nikon is doing it now. It’s just business.

            • Spy Black

              My “over-the-top dislike of anything Apple” will have about as much effect as your over-the-top dislike of anything non-Apple.

            • mikeswitz

              I don’t have an over the top dislike of any operatiing system. In fact, my wife has both. This whole discussion began with you saying how Nikon is going to alienate android and MS users by developing apps for iOS. Absurd on its face and devoid of understanding of what is going on in the mobile world. I couldn’t care less who uses which operating system. Whatever is good for Nikon is good for all of us and working with Apple is going to be good for Nikon. Period.

            • Spy Black

              What does your wife having both have to do with all the comments you’ve made along this thread?

            • mikeswitz

              Okay, this is my last post on this topic, so you can carry on without me, since you don’t want to listen to anything Thom, Wade Marks or I have said on this topic. Every one of my quotes is about android users and camera apps and Nikon alienating anybody by partnering with Apple. I’ve given you links that would justify my reasoning. If you want to continue to dissemble, be my guest.

            • Spy Black

              Sorry, you’re not weaseling your way out of your snide remarks by that.

            • Henri De Vreese

              No, people that already have a Windowsphone/Android and are in the market for a new camera will not buy a Nikon if it doesn’t support their phone OS. (common sense)
              Just like I will not buy an Apple Watch, it would be useless to me as I don’t have an Iphone anymore.
              I don’t want my camera make to make me switch phone OS. I already use app’s that wouldn’t work on iOS devices and that determine my workflow.

            • Thom Hogan

              The camera industry is collapsing. Fast. Trying to be all things to all people has failed them so far. Nikon needs to make some bets. As I noted earlier, betting both black and red and all the numbers on the wheel doesn’t actually win you anything. Indeed, you can lose it all.

              Moreover, I just don’t think Nikon has the resources to do it right for all possibilities, and keep that up to date in a reasonable fashion.

              Nikon has waited to long to make any substantive changes to what they’re doing. Earlier, they might have tried a broader approach. Now, I don’t believe that broader approach is still available to them. They’re dealing with companies that have more access to capital, move faster, and have much larger customer bases. If Nikon thinks that they can play in a field full of elephants, they should prepare to get stepped on.

            • tmay

              It’s a misrepresentation that there are “three platforms”, as that artificially constrains the context to mobile, but photography/video is more than mobile. There aren’t even three equal mobile ecosystems.

              Unless you are entirely mobile and cloud bound, then your workflow will probably need access to a desktop and a network at some point, and Chrome is likely not going to cut it. That leaves Windows and OS X as your desktop choices.

              Nikon really has to acknowledge workflow, and Android isn’t going to be a first choice in mobile for that and the points that Thom has offered. This doesn’t even account for the challenges created by the many Android OEM’s and the varying hardware configuration that Nikon would have to support.

              Nikon needs to create a superior workflow all the way from the camera controls to the NAS archives and back to the mobile device. That’s no easy task, even with 3rd party solutions. I would think that iOS would be the obvious choice for that.

            • Thom Hogan

              Thanks for the defense. However, I also have to point out that Nikon has a terrible history of keeping up with OS releases. So ANY project that Nikon decides to do is going to be stressed right from the start. At a minimum, they’re going to have to update every year. Probably more often than that. I’ll believe that Nikon can truly play in the software field when I see them actually doing it well.

            • tmay

              I have few illusions about Nikon, but always optimistic.

              I do recall that Jony Ive was giving design lessons to the the staff of Norman Foster, the architect of the new Apple Headquarters (example: how to draw the eye from floor to wall with a curvature continuous blend at the intersection).

              Perhaps Nikon will be inspired by the Apple connection.

            • mikeswitz

              If anyone can force them to do it well it’s Apple.

            • JP

              Perhaps Nikon shall focus on making camera hw for Aplle and leave the rest on Aplle :~) Unfortunatelly this would mean getting rid of the management in Tokio, but that´s not my problem.

            • Thom Hogan

              Frankly, I think everyone may be reading too much into this. Let’s pick what Admin wrote apart:

              > “iOS engineers were working on a new secret project with Nikon USA at the
              main Apple campus in Cupertino.”

              Apple lets a lot of developers come and work directly with engineers, especially around the Developer’s Conference, which starts tomorrow. At the DC, they call this “labs.” But developers can apply to do it at other times at Apple HQ. As Apple describes it: “Bring your code for guidance on fundamentals or incorporating the latest cutting edge features into your apps.”

              > “Here is an update: there will be a new iOS app (I presume from Nikon) that will add special/new camera features through Wi-Fi.”

              Sounds a lot like a variation on Sony’s PlayMemories to me. Only Sony does it through their own server, and this appears like Nikon would do it through the Apple App Store.

              So far, PlayMemories has been very hit or miss. There’s a lot of cruft. But there’s also criticism that the things that are useful are basically a form of “charging for features,” and yet again the features are being defined by engineers sitting in offices in Tokyo and not necessarily reflect what photographers would want.

              Still, any progress from Nikon WMU would be highly welcome. And any extension of what a Nikon camera can do would also be welcome.

            • tmay

              I almost expect an Apple Watch app, something as minimal as a shutter release would be a considered a good start. At this point in time, you really do need help from Apple Engineers on Watch apps. That would imply an app for the iPhone as well.

              This alone is not enough to be in a keynote address, so maybe the timing is just coincidence.

            • Eric Calabros

              We need a web-sized version of every shot we take on our phone; raw to cam storage, social network friendly jpeag to phone, immediately.

            • Thom Hogan

              The Nikon WMU app doesn’t bring the full image over, it brings a smaller image over. So it does much of what you’re asking for as is. Still, it’s another darned workflow step as a middle-man. That’s not what people really want. They want “send this to Facebook.” Directly. They don’t really want shoot with the camera, fire up the Nikon WMU app, wait for the photo to cross over, go to the Facebook app, access the Photo Roll…

            • Eric Calabros

              But dont they want to write something about the image? Touch typing on camera display is embarrassing, if even possible.

            • Thom Hogan

              First, touch typing on a camera display is terrible mainly because camera makers have never thought that they need to really solve that problem. Most that allow typing at all (e.g. Nikon’s Copyright Info section) are using UI that is basically what was state of the art for TV devices back in the early 90’s. Given that we have two wheels and a Direction pad, Nikon could do a lot better than they currently have. Indeed, the touchscreen on the D5500 allows text entry very quickly. So much so that the fact that the pro cameras don’t have a touchscreen is embarrassing. Ever tried to enter IPTC data on a D4 quickly?

              But I’ve had a little project for the last year where I’m studying what the young are doing when they post photos, and no, they don’t always want to write about the image. Indeed, they seem most to want to be able to call up hashtags more than anything else. In other words, you could pre-program hashtags into

              the camera like keywords (indeed, they should be both: hashtag in the image comment, keyword in the EXIF data) and then just apply them.

              So, for example: take photo, tap Add Hashtag, select hashtag, tap Tweet. Done.

            • Eric Calabros

              so camera should connect to the internet, through a home router or owner’s smartphone, prefer the former, and if not available, automatically chose the later. I worry about power consumption of this, and the fact that for making it full auto, something should turn wifi hotspot on or off on phone

    • scott800

      i completely agree, this seems like a very likely scenario.

    • mikeswitz

      All seven of them?

      • Spy Black
        • jimh

          Windows Phone is still a very small slice, but I expect that to change dramatically after Windows 10 is released. If Nikon is ignoring Android it’s probably because this project was initiated by Apple, not Nikon.

        • mikeswitz

          So that includes the 7 android users that are serious about taking pictures with their phone?

          • Spy Black

            Who said anything about taking pictures with their phone?

            • mikeswitz

              This is obviously going to be an app that will allow Nikon cameras (probably coolpixes) to talk to Apple mobile devices. Not many out there who want their cameras talking to a cheap or free andriod phone.

            • Spy Black

              All camera manufacturers make apps that do that, some better than others. The issue here however isn’t Apple, it’s Nikon. If you’ve ever used it, you’re probably aware that Nikon’s Wireless Mobile Untility is nothing to write home about, although I don’t think it’s horrible either. But playing favorites to any given platform, whether it’s Apple, Google, or whoever, isn’t going to really do Nikon any good.

            • mikeswitz

              Obviously, its not playing favorites, but as thom had already noted it is the place to start. Frankly android uses aren’t likely to giva shit.

            • Spy Black

              You may be right, but not for the reasons you may think.

            • mikeswitz

              Just curious, what reasons?

            • Spy Black

              Not obsessed with one place, one way of doing things.

        • nwcs

          It’s 2015 now.


          Still very large but not as large as before.

        • Wade Marks

          There’s market share and then there are profits. Thom mentioned where the money is for developers and that is iOS. Developers choose money in their pockets over market share bragging rights any day of the week.

          Most Android phones are given away for free or almost free. Most people downloading apps on Android only download free apps.

          I would venture to say that most people with higher end camera equipment use iOS over Android. The demographic of Apple customers matches more closely the demographic for higher end camera owners.

  • Something for the iWatch. 😉

  • manhattanboy

    If they do nothing else but improve the Nikon app, that will be a welcome improvement!

  • scott800

    I hope it is what I think and you can pick and choose features to add/subtract from DSLR, in-app purchased and updated right from iPhone!

    focus peaking
    flat cinema profiles (or any special profiles or built in LUTs)
    multi-cam timecode sync
    multiple camera settings management (wb, exposure matching)
    different recording options (frame rate, resolution, digital crop)

    Would be really cool to have a fully customized, iPhone-manageable, feature set on cameras. Wifi connectivity to manage multiple cameras would be awesome too.

    Unfortunately it’s probably all for a set of cheesy filters and stuff for Coolpix shooters to edit and post directly through new apple ‘photos’ editing software to their Instagram… sigh

  • BenHDisqus

    Perhaps this is the I AM ADVANCING program from a few months back

    • it could be, we have to wait and see, I really do not have any other info

  • I’m concerned that this will just be filters that only work when connected to the camera via an app. That would be a big fail.

    Now, if I could add interesting new looks, even filters to the picture control, that would be useful. For example, I’m would be interested in grainy black-and-white modes rather than Lomo type looks, but I’m still hoping for something more.

    • David Weinehall

      Grainy black and white? Isn’t the regular black and white mode with very high iso setting enough to get that?

      • More like film simulations without the cost and chemicals.

    Wonder if Nikon has ever heard of that other mobile OS, the one that’s actually really popular in Europe.

    How about being able to scroll smoothly through the photos on my DSLR, and airdrop them onto my mac with a swipe? Nah, too obvious.

    • Polygon

      in my experience Airdrop is one of the least reliable ways to share stuff between my phone and my mac.
      In theory? Yes it works.
      In practice however, having to wait sometimes up to 10minutes for the mac to show up on the iphone for airdrop, and then having the transfer fail for some reason half of the time, is just unpractical.

      Or set up a rule on the camera. Then when you connect the computer and camera on wifi, it auto-initiates transfers and any initial settings are applied plus any indexing.

  • Filters? How hipster/gay.
    I just want manual control when using my V3.

      it’s the 21st century, you can take you homophobic slurs back to the 50’s

      • Mavritivs

        I think I will keep them.
        Thanks for the advice.

  • Petr Cech

    I hope they working on mirrorless camera. The sizes are ridiculous compare to Sony a7ii. I wish Apple would design their cameras and for gods sake ditch all the connectors.

    • HF

      Could you be more specific? D750 is great, a perfect body size for me. Balances well with lenses, too. Imagine a 300/2.8, 400/2.8 or 70-200/2.8 on an A7. I want to have quick button access, too.

    Nikon need to wake up and update the OS that runs their cameras to support apps/software to be installed.
    Nikon also need to wake up to Windows10 coming around the corner which will be the most successful OS in the history of man kind!

    • jimh

      +1 on Windows 10. But, as always, they’re following the trends at about 3 years behind, so they only see iOS.

    85% of smartphone/tablet users use Android.
    Nikon, hello…????

    • Thom Hogan

      Yet the number one camera in terms of postings seems to be the iPhone. Go figure.

      • Eric Calabros

        and iPhone users pay more with in-app purchases

    • nwcs

      It’s 78% in phones and 36% in tablets. Every measure shows iOS users spend more on average than Android users.

      • RMJ

        Every measure shows iOS users are idiots.

        • Wade Marks

          And of course your reply, RMJ, shows the character of at least one non-iOS user.

        • nwcs

          What a ridiculous statement.

  • Merv S

    Considering that the what, 14% of smartphone users using iOS smartphones spend 4x as much money in their App store versus over the remaining 85% of Android users spend in Google Play store, I hope this development does work out for Apple. Nikon does need to chase those with more disposable income.

  • Ted

    Tell me one thing Nikon did well for any Software they put their hands on. The worst sample is the WMU app is the worst. Almost like a high school project.

    • mikeswitz

      Exactly, which is why it’s a good thing to work with Apple instead of Sillypix

  • jimh

    More ‘vintage’ and ‘art school’ filters for the kids. Woo hoo.
    Hey maybe they could divert just a small fraction of the manpower on this project, and actually give me a working wifi interface from my PC to the file system on my SD card. Dream on, I guess…

  • Spy Black

    2015 ain’t over yet, I’m citing full year numbers. Doesn’t matter tho does it?

    • nwcs

      Not really but your chart is Q2 2014.

      • Spy Black

        Ooops, right.

  • Percy Blakeney

    NX-D – Rubbish.
    Apple’s Photos – Rubbish.

    My expectation levels have fallen off a cliff.

  • VanHoff

    Beyond than another (WMU is a mediocre disaster) app for conectivity what we really need, many professional and serious users have been asking for, is the posibility to work with 3D Luts that emulates film trough the Picture Control settings in our Digital Cameras, being able to manage the RGB curves to get the most of the PC (Picture Controls), now THAT will be a real and USEFUL improvement in the digital age of Nikon Cameras.

  • Richard Hart

    It would be nice if it adds geotagging. Perhaps it has other controllers such as extended time-lapse tools. It could be to automatically connect or tether the camera to iPhoto which can then be uploaded or have editing applied. It is useful to show images to clients during a shoot. Perhaps video streaming?

    what about the stick on lens/sensor. Sony and Kodak make them.

  • Avieshek Rajkhowa

    Any news to Nikon’s 60.3MP sony Image sensor for Nikon 830/900 in answer to Canon EOS 5DS 50.6MP camera?
