Nikon to Add Dedicated Lens Menus In DSLRs and Mirrorless Cameras

Nikon is working to improve lens based user interlace in camera with a dedicated Lens Menus options which will include all the lens related settings / options in a single menu page.

Patent Details

The present invention relates to an imaging device.

In interchangeable cameras such as single-lens reflex digital cameras, it is necessary to make settings related to the attached lens on the camera side, but depending on the type of interchangeable lens (for example, whether or not it has an aperture ring) The setting items are different, so when changing to a different type of lens, the setting must be changed each time. Patent Document 1 describes a camera in which a lens can be replaced, in which the presence or absence of a diaphragm ring mounted on an interchangeable lens is determined by the camera, and the operation menu of the camera body is optimized according to the presence or absence of the diaphragm ring. .


The lens menu will guide you the type of lens you are using and  if you are using a FX lens in DX format camera you will get all the details how much Magnification ratio you will be getting while using FX lens in DX Camera. And if you are mounting FX Lens in DX camera then you will get all details about crop factor and resolution loss.

This patent also indicate Nikon may minimize the presence of physicals button on the lens surface. Having less function button on lens will reduce the cost and will also improve the durability of the lens.

We will update you soon as we get any new information.

Nikon Working on Head Mount Display Unit

its a creative image copyright thenewcamera

Nikon working on Head Mount Display display units to enhance the Mirrorless camera capabilities? These display will have all the basic functions that a normal Head Mount Display does, additionally it can also sync with your Nikon Mirrorless cameras.

This is not first Nikon Head Mount Display Patent, before this patent Nikon also filed 2 more patents back on 2001 and 2008, but they never appeared in the production line.

Nikon Head Mount Display Detects Pupil Movement

The entire viewable area is divided into 15 different zones to detect viewers pupil movement. Most probably the first generation of Nikon handsfree Display will have 15 AF zones for Eye AF support of Mirrorless cameras. The VR unit also have storage and a processing unit.

Patent Details (Translated)

A cross-sectional view schematically showing a configuration of a external display according to the first embodiment of the present invention .  The display device for both eyes. HMD10 includes a display unit 104L for the left eye, and a display unit 104R for the right eye, the controller 101

When, and a storage device 103. In the following description, the display unit 104L and a display unit 104R for the right eye left eye, collectively referred to as the display unit 104.

Control device 101, a CPU (not shown) and its peripheral circuits, by executing the storage medium (not shown) reads a predetermined control program, controls the HMD 10. Storage device 103 stores image data to be reproduced by the HMD 10. Controller 101 reads the image data stored in the storage device 103 as the input image data, reproduced as an observable image from the viewer.

Nikon Patent - Advance Phase AF Sensor

Nikon is working on more advanced Phase AF sensor for their DSLR camera. The new AF sensor will work in synchronization with Camera sensor and to capture sharpest image possible in every click.

We do know that Nikon is also working to introduce Hybrid AF Sensors inside DSLR at the same time they are also working to Improve the Phase AF Sensor of the camera. The patent also mentions generation of High Resolution by sensor shift technique.


Patent Details translated

To provide a focus detecting device and an imaging device that can correct defocus amount precisely in accordance with spherical aberration of an imaging optical system.SOLUTION: A focus detecting device comprises: a microlens array 161 in which a plurality of microlenses 161a are arranged; a plurality of light receiving sections 162a provided in correspondence with the microlenses; a light receiving element 162 which receives light beams from an optical system through the microlenses; and calculating means 163 which selects a pair of light receiving sections, among the plurality of light receiving sections, receiving a pair of light beams passed through different regions of the optical system in association with a plurality of aperture values of the optical system, and calculates an amount of image plane shift in the optical system on the basis of output from the pair of the light receiving sections.SELECTED DRAWING: Figure 2

Nikon Patent DSLR with Sensor Heat Sink Unit

In a latest patent we have found that Nikon is working to heat management system inside DSLR cameras, latest generation of camera sensor produce a lot of heat due to continuous 4K video recording. And that’s why probably they are working on new sensor heatsink units to enhance the performance of the upcoming DSLRs camera.

Nikon Patent DSLR with Sensor Heat Sink Unit Patent Details (Translated )

There has been a problem that heat generated by the imaging chip can not be efficiently dissipated from the imaging chip to the outside. There is known a camera module in which a solid-state imaging device is die-bonded to the bottom surface of a ceramic package, and the upper end surface of the ceramic package is bonded to a printed circuit board.


Translated from Japanese language

As the mounting substrate 2110, the same configuration as the mounting substrate 120 and the electronic component mounting substrate 130 or the same configuration as the mounting substrate 1320 can be applied. Similar to the mounting substrate 120 described with reference to FIG. 10 and the mounting substrate 1320 described with reference to FIG. 9 and the like, the mounting substrate 2110 is formed of a solder resist layer 2610 for mounting the imaging chip 100 and a solder resist layer 2610 And at least the wiring layer 2620.

Canon isn’t behind they are working on DSLR heat sink unit

Nikon Hybrid Senors in Works for DSLRs and Mirrorless

We have published patents before about Nikon Hybrid Sensor for DSLRs. But, from the latest patents, its look like Nikon have created their own version of Dual Pixel CMOS AF System.

Nikon dedicated AF pixel ROW inside a DSLR sensor, most importantly if they are using the same mechanism as of DPAF . Then of-course we will have sensor without Dead Hybrid AF pixels.

from patent document: example, as shown in FIG. 10, the imaging device 22, an imaging device 221 for imaging, the focus detection pixels 222a for phase difference detection, and a 222b, the focus detection pixels 222a

Patent –

Nikon Sub-Pixel AF structure

Not only that, You can clearly see Nikon DSLR display with AF segments or you can say AF groups just like we have in Canon’s. But the sub pixel arrangement is entirely different from Canon, here every pixel isn’t divided into two sub pixels. Instead of that Nikon is using two pixels for AF work each on having a sub-pixel unit.

In every pixel you can see two sub-pixel division, looks similar to dual pixel CMOS AF tech were every two sub pixels are involved in AF.

Nikon Display with dedicated AF Zones

Nikon DSLR camera Display screen will be distributed in AF Zones. Once you click the display unit AF section the AF area will be automatically zoomed [optional feature].


For sure these new sensors tech will be implemented soon in upcoming Nikon DSLRs. Camera.
