According to a new source, Nikon is working on a “retro-inspired” and “DF-like” camera body, which could be released in June.
Nikon is designing a “retro-inspired” body based on the old Nikon FE10, combining a traditional chassis with cutting-edge technology, as an alternative to Olympus and Fujifilm’s vintage camera designs
According to a new report, Nikon is working on a “Df-like” camera, based on the Nikon Df, where the ‘f’ stands for ‘fusion,’ and features a retro film SLR-styled body with a digital image sensor inside. The Df, on the other hand, was a full-frame FX camera, while this current throwback body may have an APS-C sensor.
Furthermore, we might see this new camera as early as June, as Nikon Asia is rumored to be planning a product event in the first week of the month, which coincides with the new Nikon Rumors story.
Nikon is expected to launch a new APS-C mirrorless camera, according to reports. It is mentioned in February that the official announcement will come in the first half of 2021. We’ve also heard that Nikon will unveil new items in the first week of June. Now comes the fun part: the latest Nikon APS-C mirrorless camera may be inspired by the past:
- Mirrorless camera inspired by the Nikon Df with mechanical dials and an articulating panel.
- The camera body is very small and lacks a handgrip, similar to the Olympus OMD or Nikon FE10 cameras.
Indeed, the classic styling of cameras like the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark IV sets them apart from the competition – and it’s something that might help Nikon win a market that isn’t being courted by Canon or Sony right now.
The Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark IV is slim, fashionable, and incredibly light. This Micro Four Thirds camera looks set to impress with an upgraded 20MP sensor and improved autofocus.
Olympus may have made headlines recently with its shocking sale, but the introduction of the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark IV demonstrates that the imaging company is back to business as usual.
With some notable changes over the Mark IV’s predecessor, the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III, this camera looks ready to please Olympus fans – and ranks as one of the best Olympus cameras ever.
The E-M10 Mark III has a special place in our hearts because it’s a fantastic little camera with a slew of useful features. It has sat squarely at the top of our best travel cameras guide for quite some time, thanks to its lightweight body, 5-axis image stabilization, and 4K video capabilities.
The Mk III, on the other hand, wasn’t without flaws. The Mk III’s 16MP sensor was disappointing when it was released at a time when 24MP APS-C sensors were the standard. There were also questions about the camera’s Continuous AF’s ability to handle moving objects.
Might the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark IV, with its revised 20MP sensor and promise of improvements to Continuous AF focusing, be the ideal camera for those looking for a lightweight, but powerful camera.
