New Nikon CSC rumors
  • There is a good chance that more than one version/model of the new mirrorless camera wil be announced at the same time

  • The camera body will be very small, very compact, with a clean industrial design

  • Built-in high resolution EVF

  • Many video features

  • Compatible with F-mount lenses

  • The sensor will be slightly smaller than Micro Four Thirds (probably 17mm in diameter, 2.6x crop factor)

  • Four lenses to be released, one of them will be a pancake, the second will be a super zoom

  • Phase and contrast-detect AF

  • Similar clean design like the Coolpix P300.

  • The camera will not have any dials on the top plate.

  • Speaker will be located on top plate.

  • There will be a pop-up flash and/or flash hot shoe for external flash.

  • The new mirrorless lenses may have electronic zoom buttons (see this patent).

  • There will be some functionality that will be introduced for the first time in a mirrorless camera.

  • The camera will probably be available in different colors.

Sounds interesting, especially if the lenses are fast ones.
