"Nikon USA are running a competition..."


UK
          

for their new Coolpix digital camera that will be announced at PMA.

I'm wondering just what this camera is going to be: with the 775, 885, 995 and 5000 they seem to have all the bases pretty thoroughly covered as far as 'conventional' digicams go...

Alan.

The only "conventional" digicam they don't have is a ZLR, or non-interchangeable lens SLR. Yeah, that's it---a 2.5mp ZLR with electronic viewfinder display and a 10x stabilized zoom lens. LOL

I recently sold my Coolpix 5000 for $920 in hopes that the newest Nikon will be an N80 Digital. So my guess is it will be an N80 Digital with a coolpix like CCD. Anyways, I simply could not fathom how Nikon expected to remain viable by letting Fuji use their N80 to make a $4000 camera. Face it, the Canon D30 body isn't all that bad and it is only $3000. I mean, who or what is the market for a $4000 N80 really? Now, if it were a F100 Digital body, going for $4000, well then that would be a different story. But then, Nikon has already done that: the D1x which now retails for $4000 and change at B&H with rebate.

Well, the first two clues are an ice cream cone(we call them twists) and a tornado(or perhaps a twister?). I'm started to see a recurring theme here. Anyone else care to throw in their two cents worth?

Perhaps they are putting a new "twist" on things.

All I know is, I was very close to buying a CP 5000, then a Nikon rep told me to "wait a couple weeks, they're coming out with something new".......just great! Now I don't know what to do! Anyone have a clue? I don't want to spend much more than the 5000 price right now, but if it is a newer improved version (which I doubt since the 5000 is so new), I'd rather wait.

Why do you want the CP 5000? Have you looked at the Sony F/707?

I hope it is a N80 digital under $1500.00, i jsut saw a used Canon D30 on ebay end at $1500.00. Nikon needs to get amateurs into the Digital SLR game, the D1x is way out of our league. Can you imagine the market they would have for a Digital N80 around $1000.

and with all those twisted hints... I would have to wager, it will be similar to the Coolpix 995. With a 6+ megapix image sensor, not that I can afford one, but for my fellow Nikonians...

Now add a twist drill, a door knob, a knot and a bottle cap(lemon soda, no less). This is going to be interesting.

Maybe it's totally organic, recyclable and will twist your pursestrings into knots.

Not sure if everyone has seen this yet. I saw this on the DPreview.com message board. Here are some pictures of the new Nikon Coolpix 2500.

be what Nikon is talking about. Looks like a 99x body, with an SLR eye piece....what you see is what you get? No paralax? Sort of an SLR point and shoot?

Interesting if it turns out to be true...but curiously, there seems to be a verticle release button on such a small camera, and why have a Nikon logo on the eye piece (from an F5?) and on the body.

I certainly don't know, but it would certainly be interesting...

I recently read something on another forum about this. Some of the same questions have been raised. Perhaps it is someones Photoshop creation.

I'd have to agree with the "Twist" theme regarding these silly hints for thier slogan.
How do we guess a slogan when we have no idea what the new camera is?

Maybe they go back to the split style of the "older" Coolpix models but call it a twist style camera.

Or as someone mentioned earlier, it twists your pursestrings to tight that it's appropriately named.
