We are now well into the second half of the year, and is now the time when we need to look at the Nikon DSLR lineup for 2013, because having already seen the release of some very popular models, such as the D7100, we are hoping to see a few more before the year is out.
Just last month we heard news of a range of Nikon Mirrorless DSLR Cameras, which are being explored in a little more detail in the video you see above. Most of these models are already on the market, and have been doing very well for Nikon, with models such as the Nikon 1, the D3100 and the D5100, which we have also discussed earlier this year.
However, the D5100 is an older model, and so Nikon felt the need to replace it earlier this year with the D5200, which was on show at CES 2013. If this camera was not for you, then Nikon did have several more on show, such as the Nikon D4 and D800, which as you will know are two very different shooters.
As we said above, these cameras were for the first part of this year, and now we look ahead to the upcoming Nikon DSLR lineup, which we could learn as soon as August or September. It will be interesting to see what they will have to offer, considering the Canon 70D was recently announced, although we do expect to learn details about a possible new Coolpix or Nikon 1 cameras.
Two other Nikon cameras that could be announced over the next couple of months are the D300S successor and the D400, but this is a mere rumor for now.
It’s not all about cameras for Nikon though, as we recently reported that the camera giant could enter into a new business, such as a smartphone with DSLR capabilities. There could be some truth to this, as it had been reported that Nikon could be working with the Nexus 5 maker to bring some of their camera technology to the Nexus 4 successor.
While it is clear that Nikon still has a decent lineup for 2013 in terms of DSLR cameras — if true — there’s also the possibility of something very different from the company as well, but what?
