Camera and imaging giant Nikon has officially confirmed that the company is working on a next-generation full-frame mirrorless camera along with new lenses that pack a new mount”. Both the camera as well as the lenses are in development and the company claims that they will enable a new dimension when it comes to the optical performance because of the new mount. The company added that with the development of this new technology, the company is reaffirming its commitment to photographs across the globe. This confirms all the long-standing rumors on the internet that Nikon is planning to take on the likes of Sony and Canon.

This comes weeks after Nikon announced that it will be discontinuing its Nikon 1 series of mirrorless cameras. This means that the new camera system will be considerably different from what we have seen in the Nikon 1 lineup. Nikon did not reveal any more details about the launch date, the technology used, or any new features that we can expect from the upcoming mirrorless camera. Visiting the dedicated teaser website, the company emphasized that it is aiming at a camera system that can make truly superb photos and videos . The company also teased the camera with an image on its official Instagram account.

The teaser image does not reveal much with only the shape of the camera visible in a silhouette form. It looks like Nikon was extra careful to ensure that it did not reveal the design of the camera with that teaser. However, from whatever is visible in the image, it is evident that the design of the camera will be significantly different from the usual DSLR or point-and-shoot lineup featuring what appears to be a considerably large eyepiece cup.

It is good that the company is entering the mirrorless market, but it will have to come with something significant to catch up with the likes of Sony in the field of compact mirrorless professional-grade cameras.
