The plot thickens: Nikon just registered the “NIKONOS” trademark

Another very interesting development: similar to the NOCT trademark , two weeks ago (on July 31st) Nikon also registered the ” NIKONOS ” trademark which  was already expired back in 2008 . This is what is listed under “goods and services”: “Cameras; optical apparatus and instruments; photographic apparatus and instruments; digital cameras; camera lenses; digital camera lenses; lens filters; rechargeable batteries for cameras and digital cameras; battery chargers for cameras and digital cameras; straps for cameras and digital cameras; caps for camera bodies; computer software; lens caps; camera cases; USB cables; audio video cables; LCD monitor covers; instruction manuals in electronic format; electronic publications.” Just a reminder that Nikon already had a waterproof mirrorless digital camera ( Nikon AW1 ): Update – for the younger [NR] audience, Nikonos was the name of an underwater camera system from Nikon : Flashback from 1998: Navy SEALs training with mysterious Nikon underwater digital camera Nikonos RS lenses modified to work with modern Nikon DSLR camera Via tmdb.eu Related posts: Nikonos trademark expired back in 2008 Nikon working on a “serious” underwater compact camera (digital Nikonos?) Nikon has a new “NOCT” trademark for cameras and lenses

This will be the fourth Z-mount lens and it will be announced after August 23rd (I have no exact date yet).

This is how the back of the Nikon mirrorless camera looks

The new Nikon mirrorless camera is already out in the field and I have already received the first drawing from a person who has used/seen/tested the camera. As you can see from the sketch, the back layout is similar to most Nikon DSLR cameras with the exception that there are no buttons/controls on the left side of the screen
