Report: Nikon 1 semi-officially discontinued in Canada

Nikon 1 concepts on display when the system was introduced A reader sent me a link to a dpreview thread describing a conversation with a Nikon rep at a recent trade photo show in Canada: The annual trade photo show is taking place at the main camera store here in Regina, Canada. At the Nikon booth, there were no Nikon 1 cameras, lenses or accessories (like last year, too). When I asked the rep, “What’s happening with Nikon 1?” His reply was: “(Shoulder shrug) There won’t be anything new.

Nikon 1: the little camera that could

Nikon 1 – the little camera that could by Thomas Stirr  (check out also his ebook with the same title ): After using Nikon APS-C and full frame DSLRs in the past, I’ve been using the Nikon 1 system exclusively for my client video business and for my still photography needs for the past two and a half years. While many people are assuming the worst, no official announcement regarding the future of Nikon 1 has been made by Nikon. I regularly hear from other Nikon 1 owners who enjoy their cameras and are planning to continue shooting with them in the years to come, even if the system is eventually discontinued by Nikon.
