One week away from the rumored new Nikon full-frame mirrorless camera announcement


We are one week away from the rumored new Nikon full-frame mirrorless camera announcement. I have received some new pricing information, this time from Europe (I assume the prices are for a lens kit):

  • Nikon 45MP full frame mirrorless camera: €4,000 (around $4,670)
  • Nikon 24MP full frame mirrorless camera: €2,500 (around $2,900)

One possible (rumored) scenario is that 45MP Nikon mirrorless full-frame camera will be announced first (at the end of July) while the second 24MP Nikon mirrorless full-frame camera could be announced at Photokina. The shipping of at least one of the new Nikon mirrorless full-frame cameras is rumored to start at the end of August or in early September.

The upcoming mirrorless full-frame camera is rumored to be the most expensive Nikon marketing campaign ever with bloggers meetups in exotic locations and maybe even some celebrities involvement.

Here is a recap of the already rumored Nikon mirrorless full-frame camera details:

Nikon 1: the end of an era


"Nikon 1: the end of an era" is by Kieran Elson:

Today (11th of July 2018) Nikon Rumours have revealed that the official Nikon Japan website has listed the Nikon 1 as discontinued, one of my favourite camera systems I've ever owned and one I still use to this day. As a long term user of the system I thought I'd share my experience, perhaps it will prove to be of use to others buying used Nikon 1 cameras in the future. But more importantly I want show that photography does not need large equipment and that high spec lists don't mean a thing.

I've always reserved judgement about new products, there are many gems out there that go unnoticed. When I was working for a photography outlet I would try all the new gear out to see the hype for myself, quite often I was left unimpressed. Nine times out of ten it would be the products boasting the biggest numbers that left me disappointed, I'm very results orientated and cant stand false facts (to put it politely).
