Not to be outdone by the other camera manufacturers, Nikon has been working on an EVIL camera (Canon is already evil, so they haven’t come out with one yet), and we’re finally getting a peek at it. Admittedly, the peek is line drawing and technical specs from a patent application, but it is a peek none the less. Nikon Rumors found the patent applications while looking at Japan’s online patent office, so make sure you allow for some possible translation errors. Check out the details after the jump.
