First Peak at the Upcoming Nikon Mirrorless Camera
Over 24 hours ago Nikon posted the first official video showing what looks like an upcoming mirrorless camera. The video (above) briefly depicts what looks like a new thin design with a larger EVF in the center a tilt monitor and a thumb grip in the back as well as a surprisingly large mount (at least compared to the camera body).
Besides the official Nikon video above there are some unofficial images including what might appear to be the first clear image of the camera (see image on nikonrumors) which looks pretty small (not so different maybe from a Sony A7/A9 series camera).

It seems that Nikon’s campaign to promote the camera started today and the camera might be officially announced on the 23’rd of August.
