Nikon President reveals plans for mirrorless camera with video (maybe)
Nikon Presidente Makoto Kimura gave an interview to Bloomberg where he said that Nikon is planning a "new concept" camera that will have "an enhanced function for video recording and may adopt the so-called mirrorless structure". He gave a nebulous time frame for the new concept cameras, but did use plural (cameras) [assuming the translation is correct]. He said it could be as early as this fiscal year (ends Q1 2011, aka March 31st 2011) or next year (ends March 31st 2012).
Reactions to the interview
Time to check out the Nikon forumsphere to see what all y'all are saying about this. As usual, we only feature forums that are not behind paywalls or membership walls. If people want to live in gated communities, we don't want to disturb them :-)
More reactions to the reveal
Reactions to the news appear to be subdued, perhaps because it is so nebulous it could really be anything :) Here are more discussions:
