Fourth Nikon camera (N1622) registered with the Indonesian Communications Agency


After the N16D3, N1610 and N1546 we now have a fourth, not-yet-announced Nikon camera with the code name N1622 being registered with the Indonesian Communications Agency POSTEL. Two of the camera will be produced in China, one in Indonesia and one in Thailand.

    Thailand: D7500
    Indonesia: P950
    China: Keymission 170 mark II

    • Espen4u

      Or keymission 360-ten 😉

    • Aldo

      keymission 720

      • RC Jenkins

        3D-360.

        Because 3D is still in along with action cams, right?

      • Ken

        Just buy a bunch of keymission 360 and tie them together so you can get keymission 36000000

        • I somehow think that KeyMission is dead as well.

          • br0xibear

            I think you’re right, always thought 360 was like 3D, a gimmick that people really couldn’t care less about after the initial curiosity factor wore out.

    • masterac

      I am sure they still have huge quantity of 360 left since i see all those paid article in the press talking about it and urban safari with it.

      If they do another i hope the correct all those issue.
      One of those being for me the fact that the mount shake too much, its scary when its on top of an helmet i fear its going to fall.

    • TwoStrayCats

      Master Key, or, perhaps, Key-Wii.

  • Espen4u

    2xChina so Coolpix are’nt dead yet?

  • Michael Foley

    I know that many people here don’t care about video, but that is a BIG reason why Sony has drawn so many users away from Nikon and Canon. My Nikon glass is amazing, I’d love to be able to use it for video and stills in one awesome package. If there is no replacement for the D810 or D750 with better 4K implementation by the end of the year, I’m jumping ship.

    I’ve been patiently waiting for Nikon to implement a FX camera with full sensor 4K recording, we have a handful of Sonys than can do it already. DSLRs are being kicked while they are down, I don’t see why a mirrorless camera would have better video capability.

    • Edison Firme

      You’re jumping ship because Nikon won’t do better video. That’s like asking Ferrari to make full size sports truck when their specialty is exotic sports cars. Every company has their niche, and I guarantee you if you leave and join Sony, Fuji, or Panasonic, you’ll find things lacking in their system too. Just my 2 cents, good luck.

      • Michael Foley

        That is the dumbest fucking analogy I’ve seen in a while. Again, you probably don’t shoot video so I don’t value your opinion whatsoever. Every single new camera coming out has 4K capability, people don’t just shoot stills anymore, this is 2017 and Youtube and video is booming. Nikon has a couple bodies that can do 4K, but pretty heavily cropped. I’d love to see them have full sensor readout.

        • Edison Firme

          Awww, you ran out of vocabulary so you gotta say the “F” word. Such intelligence

          • Michael Foley

            You ran out of logic, so you resorted to a clueless analogy. Such intelligence.

  • Ken

    Let’s hope they’re not all Coolpix s**t

    • Eric Calabros

      There are still many zoom lovers out there

      • nzswedespeed

        And the DL would have been perfect for this… But no. They get rid of the actual decent point and shoot and replace it with coolpix junk?

        • Ken

          Maybe it’s P340’s successor

    • Pippo

      V5 ? N1 yet not dead!

  • Daniel

    As long as one of those is the replacement for the D800/810 and can have the radio control for the SB-5000 work, I’ll be happy as all get out

  • animalsbybarry

    I use both Nikon and Sony
    I like Sony mirrorless cameras but they only make short focal length lenses and they do not focus well with adapted long lenses
    Recent interviews indicate Sony still just does not get it and will not be solving this problem soon ( eventually ? Maybe but not soon)

    So I am very anxious for the new D820 especially if it is high res, fast focus and fast burst rate

    Another pair of Nikon patents that have really caught my interest are the 4.7-600mm f2.8-6.3 lens for 1″ sensor (20-1620 ff equivalent) and the tip layer PD 6color dual pixel sensor
    Nikon could possibly have an amazing superzoom camera in the works ??????

  • TwoStrayCats

    All these registrations going on – but nothing has surfaced yet… will there be an avalanche of new models come July?

  • CaMeRa QuEsT

    From China: J6 and V4; from Thailand: D7500; and from Indonesia: a Coolpix. Will love to see a J6 aping the GM5 but with a tilty screen and the DL lenses become CX lenses.

    • Hendrik

      This would be fine. We all have dreams…
      I have no hope that I will ever have a better camera than my V2…

      • CaMeRa QuEsT

        Hopefully Nikon brass came to the realization that they didn’t have to make the me too DLs, that they already had great product differentiation with the Nikon 1 system and that they just had to make their next J and V bodies more enthusiast focused. The steps they took with the J5 and V3 were the right ones, they just need to step it up to the next level and give them both in-body EVFs, SD card ports and a hot shoe that takes normal Nikon DSLR speedlights. And, of course, port the DL lenses into the CX mount.

  • Mehdi R

    Is it common that N1610 registered in Dec 2016 and has not been announced yet?

    • Yes

    • Mistral75

      There are two Canon DSLR cameras that were registered in August 2016 and haven’t been announced yet.

    • CaMeRa QuEsT

      Remember that Nikon is going through a restructuring. Every new product was put on hold until further notice.

      • Mike A

        Where do you get that products are on hold? – “on hold until further notice”?? Did someone put camera quest incharge at Nikon?

        Restructuring is a Financial Term – Not Physical. All it means is that Nikon is taking expenses in a current period vs the future. Examples: writing off fixed assets/recording liabilities for layoffs/early retirements.

        • Thom Hogan

          Nikon is doing more than financial restructuring. They are changing how the whole optics department works across the company, there are management changes going on, re-evaluation of product designs, and more.

          I’m on record as stating back when the original special circumstances were disclosed in the stepper group that produced the Extraordinary Loss that Nikon would not release a camera product in Q1. I believe they were prepared to release four based on SKU examination.

          At this point, Nikon will likely do the Japanese thing: take all the bitter news all at once with their fiscal year end reporting, and immediately launch products that will just make it into Q2 shipment (their fiscal Q1).

          • Allan

            “…based on SKU examination.”

            So there are missing SKU labels? I would have assumed the DL’s were assigned SKU labels, and then the products didn’t get released. Is this information about Nikon SKUs available publicly?

            • Thom Hogan

              No, the information is not available publicly.

          • CaMeRa QuEsT

            Looking forward to reading your views on the

            Optical Engineering Division/Tochigi Nikon Corporation realignment and Nikon’s ever increasing interest in the stem cell business.

          • manattan

            @thomhogan:disqus Wouldn’t waiting to launch products because of how they look on a balance sheet versus actual market/customer demand just reinforce how stupid management is right now?
            What you are essentially saying is that we can’t have a messy Captain’s office on the Titanic.

            • Nyarlathotep

              Many old school Japanese organizations march to a different drum than western corporations. And Nikon has done this type of micro management of presentation of bad news to the market. This is the same business as inflating sales numbers by pushing overstock inventory onto its subsidiaries to make their sales numbers cheery. To take a cue from your theme, it was a whole lot of rearranging of deck chairs on the Titanic.

            • manattan

              But you are only making my point. This type of thinking is basically the same management as before. It’s foolish to expect different results from doing the same thing over again. Some might call that insane 😉

            • Thom Hogan

              It’s not the way I’d do it, no. But Nikon has additional issues at hand that intersect with this. Note the late-in-quarter refurbishment sale. Nikon really needs to prune down the things that are for sale and invest their full marketing efforts in the new things that are coming.

        • CaMeRa QuEsT

          Because they had beautiful, large and expensive stands at CES and CP+ with nothing to show. Because they decided to kill the DLs. Because the last new bodies, if you can call them new, were the D3400 and the D5600. Because the D810, D750 and D7200 replacements are unusually long overdue. And because in a fundamental restructuring everything should be up for consideration. That’s why.

  • Politics_Nerd

    Bring on the D500s! Will drive down price of non-s version to my ~$1250 threshold…

    • Shutterbug

      Only a year later? No chance.

      • Politics_Nerd

        I can wait… I fall in love with my D750 again almost every day. That buffer tho…

        • RC Jenkins

          12-bit RAW-only can get you about 30 shots, with a buffer that also refreshes faster…

  • Mac

    Where was/is the D810 manufactured? Japan?

    • CaMeRa QuEsT

      The D810/D810A are mfg. in Thailand. The D800/D800E were mfg. in Japan.

      • Mac

        Thanks.

      • Allan

        I understand that people love their D810’s. The Thai manufacturing standards must be excellent. I don’t understand why some people complain if products are not manufactured in Japan.

        • Ken

          Japanese had spent a lot of time and effort building their fame in manufacturing industry. That’s why people love them.

        • eric

          the d810 is a magnificent camera. i could care less where it is manufactured as long as it is done right.

          • Verco

            *couldn’t

        • Mehdi R

          Actually I was one of them until most of devices now are made in China (iPhone, Mac, Surface, and most of my lenses even 200-500mm f5.6 VR and 105mm f1.4 ….). I just check product quality visually and trust brand reputation internally!

  • Jebagi Erol Paker

    Andrew? where are you? Do you have any tips on these cameras?
    I showed your remarks for P900, now my wife wants it as her birthday present to start astrophotography.

  • Shutterbug

    Indonesia – 1- series, coolpix
    Thailand – D7500 /D820 / D760 / D620, etc.
    China – 1- series, coolpix

    • Thom Hogan

      You forgot Keymission, D5, Df

  • has to be the mirrorless with a new bodies. and i still have 2 d800e i love.

  • Ric of The LBC

    No Df2 on the horizon? 🙁

    • I too was hoping this addition would be a Df2. Ah well…

      • Ric of The LBC

        We ASSuMe it will/would be made in Japan.

        • manattan

          I thought the Fro knows… now you tell me its just a bunch of speculation 😉

  • Chewbacca

    Coolpix A interchangeable lens system would be interesting. A new mount with some compact primes. Stuff it into one of those suitcases for the 100th Anniversary and step into the future of Nikon. Keep producing those nice DSLR’s but figure out a way to utilize some of the modern technology we’ve been seeing.

    • MonkeySpanner

      I think a DX version of the 1 system would be awesome.

      • Jeffry De Meyer

        I think a new 1 system camera would be awesome

        • MonkeySpanner

          Totally agree. The latest Sony 1″ sensors are getting pretty awesome. Would love to see one in a new V body. Unfortunately Nikon would probably want to charge $2k body only and will miss most of the sales on that body – then cry that no one is interested in 1 system.

  • Mehdi R

    That N1610 🙂

  • Going to guess:

    N1622 = AW Replacement
    N16D3 = D7300
    N1610 = D610 Replacement
    N1546 = Coolpix P900 Replacement

  • Hmmm almost no chance to get D820 ToT
