Nikon is known for their DSLRs, but given that we’re starting to see more photographers, amateurs, enthusiasts, and professionals move to smaller and more portable mirrorless cameras, that’s a market that Nikon isn’t doing particularly well in, at least not compared to the likes of Sony.
However we have been hearing rumors that Nikon could have something new in the works and according to the folks at Nikon Rumors, there will be two full-frame Nikon mirrorless cameras that will be officially announced this coming summer. The report claims that the official announcement is set for the end of July, possibly on the 23rd of July itself, and the cameras are expected to ship a month after.
The report also reveals the alleged specs of both cameras, with one model sporting a 24-25MP sensor and another with a 45MP sensor. Nikon Rumors cannot confirm if these will be full-frame models, but they assume that they are, which seems to be the general sentiment given the rumors we’ve been hearing so far.
Other alleged specs and features includes them being the size of Sony’s A7, 5-axis in-body stabilization, 9fps continuous shooting, a new mirrorless mount, and could cost between $3,000 to $4,000. Take it with a grain of salt for now, but we have been hearing reports that Nikon definitely wants to change how they approach the mirrorless market, and this summer could give us an indication of the direction they will be headed at.
