Nikon mirrorless teaser video (Brightened version)

Today Nikon released the first Teaser about their (what we expect) mirrorless camera.

Their website for it can be found on https://events.imaging.nikon.com/live/en/

Their slogan: “TRAVEL OF LIGHT” as well as a very dark video do give a hint, that we can expect exceptional low light capabilities. 

Roger Johanson extracted the  most interesting part of the video, slowed it down and brightened it up:

As you can see the new camera looks a bit like a Sony A7 series but with a bigger lens mount and a bigger grip. This may will be a big advantage compared to the various mirrorless cameras available, as those are often equipped with a to small grip for bigger hands.

Based on past Nikon announcements we’d expect the next Teaser in around 2-3 days.

More Infos will follow.
