The latest Nikon patents



→ In October 2017 Nikon filed a patent for a what appears to be a new mirrorless mount (Z-mount?). It's interesting to note that the Nikon 1 mirrorless mount also had 12 electronic contacts.


→ Next is another recently filed Nikon patent application for a 6mm f/2 lens (not a full frame lens from what I could tell):

  • focal length: 6.511
  • aperture: 2.0
  • half angle of view: 42.06°
  • image hight: 5.6
  • total length: 7.928


→ Nikon has a patent (P6237045) for an image sensor equipped with ADC (analog-to-digital converter) on each pixel.


→ Another Nikon patent (P6264284) describes on-sensor phase detection system using a quad-pixel array.


→ Nikon also has a patent to speed up the mirror flip-up speed in DSLR cameras.


→ Digital camera with built-in email client.




A different Nikon patent for a connected camera.


→ Another Backside illumination sensor (BSI) patent from Nikon.


→ Another Nikon dual pixel sensor patent (pictured: array of focus detection pixels).


→ I also spotted a Nikon patent online for camera and lens with built-in biometric sensors.
