Something that has until now existed only in the world of speculations and rumors today became something real - Nikon confirmed the date of premiere of an advanced mirrorless camera with new mount, possibly in the FX format.
A few days ago, the producer presented a photograph showing an outline of a mysterious camera and a cryptic advertising spot, under the title of "Travel of Light", appeared on YouTube. Today we finally got to know the date of the premiere of the new camera – it’s going to be 23rd August 2018.
At the home page of the producer’s website there is a countdown timer counting 25 days from now and above it we can find a slogan: "In pursuit of light". The whole thing is stylistically close to the presented photographs and the film.
1). Nikon Mirrorless Camera
As for now, it’s hard to say anything about the specification of the new Nikon baby. The rumor has it that it is going to be a direct rival of Sony A7 III.
However, we already know that the camera will be equipped with a completely new mount to which (again, that’s a rumor) we will be able to mount lenses with the brightness of up to f/0.95. The buyers of the new Nikon will not have to get rid of the F-mount lenses which they had used until now – such lenses will be fit for use with an adapter.
We could certainly write much more – the Internet is full of speculations, but let’s wait patiently until the date of the premiere, which is only a month from now.
