A little more detail is shaking out on the Nikon retro full frame camera that was first rumored a couple days ago. The most interesting thing is that it will look more like the Nikon F3 than the FM2 and it will only be a still image camera – no video features. So, for all of you who have been clamoring for a stills-only camera, here you go.
I will remain surprised if the rumors of the release date hold true; however, the camera should launch the first week of November. If that turns out to be true, I think Nikon is still missing out on a golden opportunity to launch the camera at PhotoPlus this week.
