The rumor mill has been buzzing the last few days about a Nikon EVIL camera. For those into acronyms: EVIL = Electronic Viewfinder, Interchangeable Lens.
An announcement from Nikon is rumored for August or September of 2010 – perhaps at the Photokina show in Germany. Nikon Rumors has posted a artist’s conception of the Nikon EVIL as well as illustrations from recent Nikon patent applications.
Four thirds cameras are “the thing” to watch in 2010. A Canon EVIL is in the works, and Sony is rumored to be working on something similar, a competitor for the Panasonic GH-1.
The 2000s were the DSLR decade. Those days are over. DSLRs are about as relevant today as dial-up modems and SCSI-conected scanners. The 2010s are the decade DSLRs died.
That seems a little far-fetched. An oracle of Delphi Ken Rockwell is not.
