Nikon mirrorless system is called CX. The first cameras will be named Nikon V1 and Nikon J1.

According to Nikonrumors there will be two mirrorless cameras form Nikon (the V1 and the J1). The only difference between the two is that one has a self timer :)

Those are the specs:
ISO range: 100-3200 (with H1-6400)
CCD sensor (not sure about that) – the whole mirrorless line will be called CX, similar to DX and FX
phase and contrast AF detection
Both cameras will have 2.7x crop factor
3 in. LCD screen
The J1 model will have a built-in flash
The V1 will not have a built-in flash but it will have a multi-accessory port which will support external flash and a GPS device
There will be no traditional flash hot shoe on both models
There will be a F-mount adapter
Both cameras will probably be made of plastic
Full HD movie with many additional features
EXPEED 3 processor with 600 megapixels per second processing power

The four mirrorless lenses are (most with choice of colors, except the 10-100mm):
10mm f/2.8 pancake lens
10-30mm f/3.5-5.6 VR lens (very short and portable)
10-100mm f/4.5-5.6 VR
30-110mm VR

Reuters reports: “The company will price the mirrorless camera plus lens at 70,000 yen-100,000 yen ($900-$1,300), which is on a par with rivals’ offerings.“. But as you see form the image on top Nikon just released an official statement saying that “we didn’t release any information”.

If the camera has a 2,7x crop sensor that price range may be a bit to high or not? Anyway, let’s see what Nikon will announce on September 21!

A mysterious camera: The Samsung Retro R1!

For a couple of hours an autor of a british blog posted a rumor about a mysterious Samsung Retro R1 mirrorless camera. He got the specs at an important meeting. The rumor is no more online, probably because he has been “forced” to remove the post.

UPDATE: The author of the “rumor” asked me to remove the original text I copied form his blog. Anyway, the news is all over the web now so I am going to report the key news from the Samsung Retro R1 rumor.

It looks like Samsung is working on an advanced mirrorless camera which is about the size of the that looks like the [shoplink 100018 ebay]Fuji X100 (Click here ot see that cam)[/shoplink]. It has a 24 Megapixel APS-C sensor with “retro styling” in black and chrome. It has 10 fps and a max shutter speed of 1/8000 sec. The surprise is that it has phase detection AF, swifel screen and costs £616.

Sounds amazing or not? let’s hope this is a true rumor. Specs and price(!) are amazing!
