While the 1 series cameras are very much targeted at the folks that just want an interchangeable lens camera in a small size, a new patent hints that Nikon may be trying to reach for a higher end customer now. Nikon Rumors is reporting on a brand new camera with additional drawings on their site. The new 1 series camera seems to have more of a finish similar to that of their DSLRs, the Nikon red badge, a real mode dial, and apparently some sort of exposure control dial on the back.
Considering how much hype there is over Sony’s RX100 Mk II 1 inch sensor, Nikon might be trying to take advantage and compete in that market just a bit more with an ILC of some sort.
