    When Are Most New Nikon Cameras Released?

    We couldn't see any noticeable pattern in the release dates for new Nikon cameras over the last 3 years.

    September was the biggest month last year for new Nikon cameras, with four new Nikon cameras released that month. Two new Nikon cameras were released in March 2017 making it the biggest month that year for new Nikon digital camera releases. In 2016 most new Nikon cameras were released in January, with eight new Nikon cameras released that month.

    How Fast Do Nikon Digital Camera Prices Drop After Release?

    Nikon cameras tend to depreciate faster than most digital cameras.

    Most digital cameras drop in price by 2% in the first 6 months after release. On average Nikon digital cameras drop in price by 4% in the first 6 months after release. That means that on a typical Nikon camera costing $736 you could save on average $28 by waiting 6 months before buying.
