Is Nikon Planning to Go Retro Again?


Nikon has dabbled in vintage-styled digital cameras for quite some time now, with some achieving more success than others, but they have yet to release a full frame mirrorless camera with that sort of design. That might change soon, with a new vintage-style full frame mirrorless camera rumored to be on the way very soon.

Nikon Rumors is reporting that Nikon is planning to release a new full frame camera with retro styling as soon as next week. Nikon released the Df, a vintage-inspired DSLR almost a decade ago (don’t miss this hilarious review by Fstoppers’ own Lee Morris). Most reviews deemed the camera as more form than function for the price, but the release of the mirrorless APS-C Z fc was met with much more positive reviews. The new camera is, unsurprisingly, rumored to be based on the successful Z fc design and feature a 45-megapixel sensor. Other features include improve autofocus over the Z 6II and Z 7II and a dedicated hardware function for a black and white mode. Of course, rumors don’t always pan out, but Fujifilm has long established that their is demand for vintage-inspired cameras with manual controls, and Nikon has a history of also trying to capitalize on that trend, so I wouldn’t be surprised to see such a camera emerge. Hopefully, we will see more soon!
