We've kept the below in purely as it may be interesting to see how our initial thoughts from the first video fair in hindsight....

Reaction from first Nikon Mirrorless teaser video

While the video did not give much away – the camera remains in silhouette throughout the trailer – it certainly got the camera world speculating as to what was to follow.

The silhouette - a slim body with emphasis on the new mount
 Nikon have confirmed there is a new mount which appears large compared to a relatively slim-line looking camera body.

The video had the tagline ‘in Pursuit of Light’, features light particles travelling through space, before hitting a sensor, and finally forming into an image of a lady on the rear LCD sensor.

The videos so far emphasise premium optical performance, powerful processing power and rich, vivid image rendition.

There’s also exciting news if you are an existing Nikon DSLR user - Nikon confirmed an F-Mount lens adapter is under development.

So what can we expect next?
