Nikon hasn’t found much success with its efforts to expand from DSLRs into the mirrorless camera market.
The company made a halfhearted attempt to chip away at Sony, Panasonic, Olympus, and other mirrorless specialists a few years ago with the Nikon 1 line, but as reported by NikonRumors, the whole series has now been discontinued.
Nikon last updated the line with the J5 in 2015, which seemed like the most appealing product in the Nikon 1 series to that point.
But the cameras were foiled by high prices, a one-inch sensor that was smaller than those used by the competition, and a confusing naming scheme.
But despite this long-expected discontinuation, Nikon is rumored to be working on a reset of its mirrorless plans.
NikonRumors reports that the company could introduce two full-frame mirrorless cameras as soon as later this month.
