At Photokina 2016 Amateur Photographer had an interview with Nikon Europe product manager Jordi Brinkman. Nikon has denied the rumors that Nikon 1 system is no longer in development and it is considering making a higher-end mirrorless camera.
‘No, it’s not ending. Those are rumours. You can expect the J series especially to continue. This is really our mainstream model.
‘However, we are considering taking the strengths of Nikon 1 – which is speed, portability, movie capabilities – to maybe refine the concept… to fit better to the market need.’
‘When you are talking about larger sensor mirrorless, this is definitely also a market we are officially monitoring in detail and we are really considering this segment.’
So, you are considering a larger sensor size? ‘I am not committing. But we are definitely considering how we could fit in this market and what would be the first, the best way to enter.
