Nikon Discontinues Nikon 1 Series Mirrorless Cameras

By on

Nikon has now officially discontinued the 1 Series mirrorless cameras, including all 10 models that were released since 2011. The timing seems to be on spot for the introduction of the first Nikon full frame mirrorless camera.

Speculation is now growing that Nikon are set to release two new full-frame mirrorless cameras ahead of the Photokina photography show in September. Check out the upcoming Nikon full frame mirrorless camera specs below.

The Nikon 1 mirrorless products are also no longer available at B&H, while Adorama still has some models in stock

Full Nikon full frame mirrorless camera specs

  • Two mirrorless cameras: one with 24-25MP and one with 45MP (48MP is also a possibility).

  • Over 400 AF points, not sure about the exact number, it should be somewhere between 430-450. The AF is supposed to be very fast.
  • The rear LCD screen is tiltable just like the Nikon D850.
