Nikon Full Frame Hybrid Retro Camera Coming Soon

Nikon is rumored to announce a new full frame camera soon. The rumored Nikon hybrid full frame camera design will have a retro look, just like the Olympus OM-D or the good old Nikon FM2.

Nikon’s new full frame camera expected to be “not mirrorless” and will compete against Sony’s new A7 cameras. According to NR, the new Nikon full frame retro camera will have some kind of a “special (hybrid?)” viewfinder.
