Nikon Rumors is reporting Nikon will announce a new compact camera on October 15. A “clone” of the Leica X1 is rumored to Nikon’s foray into the compact market.
Technical details are both wild and sketchy. Video capable or not, interchangeable lens or a fixed lens like the Leica X1? Only Nikon knows, and they aren’t saying until October 15.
The 15th will be a busy day for Nikon. Multiple events have been scheduled during the Salon de la Photo, in Paris, France. Nikon is expected to announce the new D3s. The Nikon D3s will be a 14 frame-per-second DSLR with 1080p HD video. New Nikon lenses are also expected to be announced. Again, all rumors.
