Default What is Nikon "Q"?

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://nikonrumors.com/2010/09/17/what-is-nikon-q-part-2.aspx' target='_blank'>http://nikonrumors.com/2010/09/17/w...n-q-part-2.aspx</a><br /><br /></div><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/dht/auto/1284834398.usr1.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" /></p><p>The <a href="http://nikonrumors.com/2010/09/16/no-other-products-expected-to-be-released-for-photokina-except.aspx" target="_blank">rumours</a> are starting to <a href="http://nikonrumors.com/2010/09/17/what-is-nikon-q-part-2.aspx" target="_blank">mount</a>: it's looking like Nikon is going to be announcing something big at Photokina, but the speculation is it will be simply an announcement - no product yet. So what is it? Well, Nikon Rumors is guessing that it's going to be Nikon's mirrorless EVIL camera - and given that the "F" mount lenses are what Nikon DSLRs use, calling the new system's lens mount the "Q" makes a certain amount of sense. But in looking at the image above, I'm struck by how much the grip seems to stick out - that's not something you tend to see on EVIL/DILC cameras. On the other hand, it might be part of Nikon's design to make them easier to hold - and if the rest of the camera is quite thin, it might work out OK.</p><p>I'm honestly quite excited about whatever Nikon has cooking with their mirrorless camera; I'm an unabashed fan of Nikon and the image quality of their DSLRs, and if I could get near-DSLR image quality in a camera I could fit in my jacket pocket, well, sign me up!</p>
