First tease: Is this Nikon’s coming full-frame mirrorless camera?

Are you on the edge of your seat yet, Nikonians? It looks like Nikon might be teasing its upcoming mirrorless camera in a video posted by Nikon Europe. While there's no explicit statement that the teaser is for their new mirrorless camera system, which they've said they're working on, it's hard to imagine what else the video below could be showing.

Towards the end of the video, after a lot flashy graphics, we see a very dark image of the camera. Based on the silhouette, it's certainly unlike any existing Nikon model, with the very thin profile suggesting a much shallower lens mount, and therefore a mirrorless model. The size of the lens mount relative to the body seems to align with what we've heard from Nikon directly. Last September, Nikon's Tetsuro Goto said that if Nikon were to make a mirrorless camera, it would be full-frame.

You can see the video for yourself below. Further down, we extracted and brightened a few stills to offer a slightly better look at the camera body. (No surprise, Nikon Europe made sure there was precious little detail in the shadows ;-)

Let us know what you think about the teaser in the comments below. Also, let us know what you wish for in a Nikon mirrorless camera! Stay tuned to Imaging Resource for more information as it becomes available on Nikon's plans. If this is indeed their full-frame mirrorless body, it should be a very exciting rest of the year for Nikon fans!
