Nikon, reportedly preparing three new digital SLR Nikon D5300; Nikon D610 and Nikon D4x, has changed schedules and release dates for the DSLRs.
According to the reports, Nikon is preparing several new and renovated cameras, to be introduced in the market within the next few months.
Specifically, the Japanese manufacturer is planing to launch a new professional underwater DSLR camera Nikon D4x, along with the improved Nikon D5300 and D610.
Nikon D5300 is expected to arrive during the first week of January, 2014, i.e. just before the CES 2014 to be held in Las Vegas, while the Nikon D610 is expected to be showcased at the end of October during the Photo Plus Expo 2013 in New York, which is quite imminent. The third SLR, Nikon D4x has been postponed to early 2014.
According to the rumors, Nikon D5300 is going to have some hardware improvements and support for Wi-Fi and GPS functionality, which lacked in the previous model of the series i.e Nikon D5200. The Nikon D610 will arrive in stores to permanently eliminate the problem of dust on the sensor found in the Nikon D600. This problem has discouraged many users to purchase the camera.
Besides, Nikon is also reported to be working on a new underwater camera that could belong to the segment of mirrorless Nikon 1. For this camera, the company may also announce a series of interchangeable waterproof lenses precisely designed to work with such a system. Moreover, the availability still remains a mystery, but could happen in the Q1 of 2014.
