Details from the new Teaser

Here some details from the new teaser:

The grip

  • The grip is huge for a mirrorless, good news so far.
  • We can also see that there is a wheel in front (similar as it was in many DSLRs like the D750). 
  • There are many buttons placed on the grip. This could allow better access to some important functions (moved from the back to the grip top)

The material

Do you see this material? It looks even handier than what we had on some DSLRs. This will, compared to other mirrorless systems, allow a more secure feeling as it doesn’t feel slippery.

 

Size estimations

We already had two size estimations (Nr 1 and Nr 2). Here follows Nr 3: 

All estimations based on the hot shoe.

  • EVF-Overlap behind the body               18mm
  • Grip-Length                                                    39mm
  • Body with grip length                                 77mm
  • Total length with the lens                      158mm

 

New teaser found showing the grip

We found a new teaser which shows the nice and huge grip.

Not only does the grip seem to be great for bigger hands, it could also allow the usage of existing DSLR batteries. Of course this is only a rumor, but it would be a great one and simplify the change as well as a it would ensure a good battery time.

Also we see that the Swoosh we know from Nikon is still there.
The red element was introduced as a design element by Giorgetto Giugiaro in the Nikon F3 in 1980. So yes, it is a Nikon and they are not just selling Sony cameras 😉

What to expect

Nikon wrote on their website:

TRAVEL OF LIGHT

Countless rays of light come together, forming an image at the end of their long journey. Nikon’s ongoing mission heading into the future: to guide light into forming superb pictures.

As always when a company announces something like this, there are rumors, there are fanboys and of course the guys of a competitor flowing through the internet.
