Few days ago Gunther Wegner published an open letter to Nikon. He is a well-known time lapse-, nature-, landscape and wildlife photographer, based in northern Germany. Gunther is also originator and developer of the LRTimelapse. There he admires Nikon for finally acknowledging Time-Lapse photography. Gunther Wegner suggests some important updates that could be done in the future Nikon cameras to make the process of doing time-lapse easier and well-controlled. Gunter also suggests his help and expertise if Nikon are willing to use it.
Today, April 30th, Nikon started the biggest so far rebates for some of their DSLR models. The most popular cameras in this Nikon rebate are:
Nikon D500 is now only $1796.95.
Nikon D750 is now ONLY $1496.95
Nikon D810 is now $800 off ($2496.95), comparing with it’s starting price of $3299.99.
In my previous post “What I want to see from Nikon in 2017”, I wrote about the Nikon DL cameras: “They are almost on the market. Several stores already have new arrival dates, so these cameras are coming officially.”
Well I was wrong. Today Nikon announced the cancellation of the series. Here is the official announcement:
“Cancellation of release of the DL series of premium compact cameras
February 13, 2017
TOKYO – Nikon Corporation announced today that sales of the long-awaited DL series of premium compact camera, the DL18-50 f/1.8-2.8, DL24-85 f/1.8-2.8, and DL24-500 f/2.8-5.6, will be canceled.
A June, 2016 release was originally planned for the DL series. However, with the identification of issues with the integrated circuit for image processing, release of the three cameras was delayed indeterminately.
