When photographers think of DSLRs, it would not be surprising if their minds immediately jumped to brands like Nikon or Canon. However when it comes to mirrorless, there is a good chance many are thinking of brands such as Sony or Fujifilm, but that’s something that Nikon probably wants to change.
Nikon today announced the launch of its new COOLPIX P1000 camera which promises “Superzoom” with its 125x optical zoom capability. The 24-3000mm equivalent 125x optical zoom is backed by high performance NIKKOR optics which make this camera perfect for sports, wildlife, birding, and celestial photographers who require great performance from extreme distances.
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.
nikon 1Nikon’s mirrorless efforts haven’t seen the greatest success, at least not compared to its DSLR lineup. Now we have heard the rumors that Nikon could be developing a new mirrorless camera system, and now it looks like the company could be slowly starting to phase out the existing Nikon 1 series.
We have been hearing rumors that Nikon is developing a new mirrorless camera (or cameras) so the only question is when will we actually get to see them? Unfortunately for Nikon fans and enthusiasts, it seems that you guys will have a bit of waiting to do because it looks like these cameras will only be launching in the spring of 2019.
We have been hearing the rumors for a while now that Nikon is developing a new mirrorless camera. While the company has a few mirrorless cameras in their lineup, it’s safe to say that they haven’t really seen the same level of success that companies like Sony or Fujifilm have experienced.
Back then when it came to filming movies and videos in general, you would need a dedicated video camera to do so. However these days DSLRs come with video recording features which actually can do more than just hold their own. In fact if you’re looking to get into filmmaking, you might be interested in Nikon’s latest launch.
When it comes to full-frame mirrorless cameras, it’s safe to say that Sony’s pretty much got the market cornered with their A7 and A9 mirrorless cameras. However this isn’t to say that other companies are going to take this lying down as we have heard rumors that companies like Nikon and Canon have something in the works.
Word on the street has it that Nikon has a new mirrorless camera in the works, which following the apparent discontinuation of the Nikon 1 V3 makes sense. However if you were hoping that Nikon might have something to show at the upcoming CP+ photography event, then prepare to be disappointed.
Word has it that Nikon is working on a new mirrorless camera, and given that Nikon’s previous mirrorless efforts haven’t exactly panned out, it is understandable that the company might be working to make their next mirrorless camera even better. Now according to a report from Nikon Rumors, some details have been revealed.
Back in 2014, Nikon announced the Nikon 1 V3 mirrorless camera and now about four years later, it appears that the camera has since been discontinued. This is according to a listing on B&H in which they claim that the camera has been discontinued, but given how old the camera is we guess we can’t say we’re surprised.
Despite being juggernauts in the camera industry with big name professionals using their cameras, Canon and Nikon haven’t really had much success on the mirrorless front, at least not compared to the likes of Sony or Fujifilm. However we have heard that they are planning on changing this, and in the case of Nikon we could be looking at a new mount.
Based on past Nikon releases for their professional DSLRs, we’ve seen the company release the Nikon D3, followed by the D3s, the D4, which was then followed by the D4s, and early last year we saw the company launch the D5. This means that assuming Nikon refreshes their professional lineup every 2 years or so, can we expect the Nikon D5s in 2018?
Do our smartphones have the potential to replace dedicated cameras? Perhaps when it comes to day-to-day photos, or if you want a quick snap of something, our smartphone cameras are more than capable of getting the job done. In fact we’ve seen many instances in which smartphone cameras can snap some really amazing photographs.
