NikonRumors email subscription no longer available, looking for alternatives


The NikonRumors email subscription is no longer available. Google decided to kill the service (called Feedburner) I have been using for 15 years. While I am looking for an alternative solution, you can follow the latest NikonRumors blog posts on Facebook, Twitter, and RSS feed:

I assume at some point Google will also kill the Feedburner RSS feed, so it could be a good idea to switch now to the default https://nikonrumors.com/feed.

NikonRumors can also be found on Instagram, YouTube, Flickr, and Pinterest but I am not very active on those channels.

Nikon Z7 Louis Vuitton edition (probably fake)

Nikon Z7 Louis Vuitton edition (probably fake)

The Nikon Z7 camera is now listed as discontinued (“old product”) on the official Nikon Japan website (direct link to the product listing):



The Nikon Z7 however is not yet listed in the discontinued section of Nikon Japan website.

A quick check in the US shows that the Nikon Z7 is currently in stock at Adorama, B&H, and Paul’s Photo.

Update: it seems that several Nikon Z6 configurations are also listed as discontinued:

No, Nikon ambassador did not use a Nikon Z8 camera


I have to make one of those posts again – Nikon ambassador did not use a Nikon Z8 camera and Nikon’s website did not leak the Nikon Z8 camera as some clickbait sites reported today. A quick search shows the original Nikon USA website that was created almost a year ago – the Z8 is clearly a typo since the whole article is about the Z9. You can view the source on the page to see the code – here is a screenshot:

Nikon Speedlight SB-500 flash orders temporary suspended, Speedlight SB-5000 available for purchase


Nikon Japan issued a new press notice indicating that orders of the Speedlight SB-500 flash are temporarily suspended. The Nikon Speedlight SB-5000 flash should be available for purchase.

Most Nikon Speedlight flashes have been for a while and are currently out of stock in the US (check Adorama and B&H).

As I already mentioned last year, I think Nikon is done with developing flash units for their cameras and has already outsourced that task to third-party manufacturers:

Nikon’s collaborations with Nissin and Profoto: I think Nikon will no longer develop lighting product
