Nikon’s Photokina press release suggests no further product announcements

Nikon Europe issued their press release for the 2018 Photokina show (September 26-29) and it seems that the new mirrorless Z system will be the main attraction at the Nikon booth. After reading the press release, I think there is a very low chance that Nikon will make any major announcements at their  September 25th event . Here is the full text of the press release: NIKON TO DEMO ITS FULL-FRAME MIRRORLESS SYSTEM AT PHOTOKINA 2018 New cameras, lenses and industry-renowned speakers form the agenda for the booth at Halle 2.2 Amsterdam, The Netherlands, 6th September 2018 : Nikon prepares to take centre stage once again at the world’s leading imaging show, Photokina, in Cologne

Nikon: study reveals that majority of Americans are ready to experience life in 360

New press release/infographic from Nikon about 360-degree cameras: Study Reveals That Majority of Americans are Ready to Experience Life in 360 Nikon “Life in 360” Study Explores Americans’ Awareness and Attitudes Toward 360-Video and Virtual Reality MELVILLE, NY – Today, Nikon Inc., a world leader in digital imaging, has released results from the Nikon Life in 360 national survey, indicating that 90% of Americans believe content they currently watch would be better viewed in fully immersive, 360-degrees, and 92% of Americans are ready to capture and share their own personal experiences using 360 cameras. The study also revealed massive potential for growth in the 360-space, as while only 25% have used a 360-camera, and less than half (49%) are at least somewhat familiar with the technology, nearly three quarters of Americans (72%) are interested in trying out a 360 camera to help share their missions in an exciting new way.On the heels of Nikon’s entry into the 360-degree camera market with the KeyMission 360, Nikon commissioned the Nikon Life in 360 Survey to study awareness and attitudes toward emerging 360 video technology and gain insights into what Americans want to view and capture in 360. It’s Better in 360! Respondents were asked what content, if any, that they currently watch would be better if shot with a 360-degree camera.
