Marty4650: Nope.

The time for this sort of camera came and went around two years ago. And removing key features doesn't bode well for Nikon's sales projections. Today's entry level camera is the smart phone. From there, anyone who wants to upgrade will go directly to the D5500 or a MILC camera for not very much more.

With DSLR sales at half of what they were a few years ago, you really need to wonder about the wisdom of Nikon offering NINE different DSLR models (Dx, Df, D8xx, D7xx, D7xxx, D6xx, D5xx, D5xxx and D3xxx).

Talk about cannibalization!

Nikon is so busy competing with themselves that they have completely forgotten that MILC cameras exist! Nikon should be consolidating their DSLR lines and moving more aggressively into other areas that are growing, or at least stable markets.

Agreed. The D3300 should've been the end of the line for Nikon's entry-level DSLRs. I don't understand Nikon's "roadmap".

Canon should be investing its resources in the EOS-M, not rehashed Rebels.

Hey, now maybe they can introduce a limited-edition "Corinthian leather" Olympus Air A01 to clip on my iPhone! (Yuck). Seriously, it is an attractive camera.

Does Nikon even need the Nikon 1 camera line once these hit the shelves??

F/6.3 translates to $630 extracted from my bank account, not $899, if I planned on buying one (I'm not). Nikon is so far out of touch with reality.

Another 18MP sensor?

All of these "clip-on" gadgets are a compromise. Why won't Apple simply make a digital camera first that also happens to be a smartphone second, as an OPTION to the iPhone device we use now? Then they'd once and for all beat Canon and Nikon at their own game since those two are not particularly cutting-edge with connectivity...

In reply to:

JackM: "Nikon cites poor market conditions, a large drop in compact camera sales and, most interestingly, a 'deceleration' in mirrorless camera sales growth."

Or how about it was just a stupid camera only out-stupided by the Pentax Q?


At least Pentax makes no apologies for the quirky Q. I get the Q's target audience: people who will buy a fun little camera in a gazillion different color combinations but with little interest in spectacular image quality. For the life of me I will never understand the Nikon1's target audience, which in my opinion makes the 1 "stupider".

On article Camera shipments continue to fall (133 comments in total)

If Oly and Panasonic can ride out this downturn, I think we'll see even more compelling mirrorless entries. I own three older, bulkier Nikon DSLRs, and I'm probably at the end of that platform. DSLRs no longer offer me enough advantages over smaller mirrorless cameras. Canon and Nikon no longer strike me as innovative; they simply peddle their products better than the real innovators Sony, Oly, and Panasonic.

Wow, $900 for a lens in a throwaway camera system.

I think the folks at Nikon simply do not understand the mindset of thieves. They could post a warning in twelve different languages on the camera or lens that that particular unit has theft-deterrent features, but that wouldn't stop a thief who doesn't know how to read or is incredibly smart at finding a hack to circumvent the security password/features.

Wasn't Nikon suing Sigma recently for some sort of patent infringement? As others have suggested, this could be a way for Nikon to lock third-party manufacturers quite literally OFF their lens mount.

My life is overwhelmed with passwords. One reason I pick up a camera is to escape the tedious of passwords and security questions. I'd rather see Nikon come up with a compelling mirrorless system than give us this boondoggle.
