Nikon has now officially discontinued the D3x00 and D5x00 product lines

Nikon has actually apparently sent official notices to stores mentioning that the Nikon D3x00 and D5x00 series line of product are now formally stopped. This indicates that the D3500 and D5600 will be the last video cameras in each of the two lines including a little bit more weight to the just recently resurfaced rumours of an upcoming Nikon Z30 statement.

The discontinuation of the D5600 wasnt actually all that much of a surprise with the statement of the Nikon Z50 in 2019. Its basically the D5600 replacement– although it does not have particular features from the D5x00 line, like a wired remote shutter port– so a theoretical D5700 never ever actually made any sense. It was a little surprising to see the D3500 terminated, though, without a follower being revealed.

With not just those specific cams but both item lines now formally discontinued, the recent rumours of an upcoming Nikon Z30 APS-C mirrorless video camera statement (possibly later on this month) may in fact turn out to be true. This may likewise mean well be seeing a Nikon Z50 Mark II body coming soon, too. The Z50s fantastic, however having actually been launched in 2019 and being Nikons first-generation APS-C mirrorless body, its due for a refresh.

Theres still no real word on when we may see mirrorless replacements for the Nikon D7500 and Nikon D500, and now that the Nikon Z9 has had its time to shine which the D780 and D850 have actually essentially been taken over by the Z6 II and Z7 II, hopefully, we will not need to wait too much longer for some higher-powered APS-C mirrorless electronic cameras from Nikon. Its definitely about time Nikon showed APS-C a bit more love.
