Nikon To Launch Next Generation Full-Frame Mirrorless Cameras.
Major strides in mirrorless camera development are dominating camera related news. Mirrorless cameras are shaping up to be the trend in modern camera development. Mirrorless cameras, essentially, are much more portable, lightweight and user-friendly compared to traditional DSLRs
Nikon in a major announcement on July 25, declared that it was working on a new next-gen full-frame mirrorless camera with Nikkor lenses and a new camera mount, a Nikon FX-format. The Japanese camera manufacturer claims that a “new dimension in optical performance” will be achieved with the adoption of this new mount. The announcement comes just days after the Nikon 1 mirrorless camera lineup was discontinued. Nikon’s last mirrorless camera, the Nikon 1 J5, was launched way back in 2015.
An F-Mount adaptor is also under development which would enable the use of numerous F-Mount Nikkor lenses with the new unnamed full-frame mirrorless camera. Details around the camera’s pricing and release date will be shared soon.
However, a report by Nikon Rumors claims that two new mirrorless cameras are in the lineup, one with a 48-megapixel sensor and the other with a 25-megapixel one. The first one is said to get a price tag of $4,000 while the “budget” 25-megapixel option might have a starting price tag of $2,500. However, there is no evidence or official statement from the company confirming this.
Nikon will continue to develop its iconic lineup of digital SLRs along while focusing on next-gen mirrorless technology.
