So much for a splashy unveiling. Nokishita managed to grab the detailed specs for both the KeyMission 80 and the KeyMission 170. A big takeaway is now that Snapbridge for iOS is out, Nikon is doubling down on the connectivity between its products and our smartphones.

The KeyMission 80 strikes me as pretty damn useful for a vlogger on the go or a sweet dashcam. But that depends on the ability to record with both cameras at the same time. Not sure on the action cam mentality for the 80, but you can bet you’ll see it in the hands of people at concerts and festivals.

While the leak is detailed and complete with pictures, still take it as a rumor until the unveiling.

Here are the leaked specs (no pricing details):

  • Color: Black, Silver
  • Equipped with two cameras
  • Main Camera: 12.4 megapixels, 80-degree field of view
  • Second Camera: 4.9 megapixels, 90-degree field of view
  • LCD: 1.1-inch 230,000-dot, touch panel
  • Electronic image stabilization
  • High-speed start-up and hands-free operation
  • Full HD video
  • SnapBridge connectivity
  • Wi-Fi, Bluetooth
  • Stereo microphone
  • microSD card

The true action camera of the pair and Nikon’s acceleration into the niche GoPro has held dominance over for years. A Nikkor lens with GoPro durability has my interest piqued. And the 170 offers 4K video with electronic image stabilization. It won’t get rid of the shaky cam, but it makes polishing your adventures a bit easier.

And here are the leaked specs via Nokishita:

  • Equipped with a bright ultra-wide-angle f2.8 NIKKOR lens
  • 4K video with a 170-degree field of view
  • Video: 4K 30fps, 1080p to 120fps
  • LCD 1.5-inch 340,000-dot
  • Electronic image stabilization
  • Can be used at a depth of 10m without the waterproof case (40m with its waterproof and shockproof case)
  • SnapBridge 360/170 connectivity
  • Wi-Fi, Bluetooth built-in
  • Stereo microphone built-in
  • microSD card
  • Battery: EN-EL12

Nothing on the sensor or price. The GoPro Session offers a lot of these features already and at one one hell of an attractive price point. Nikon isn’t about to bargain-basement the cost, and I expect we will hear a ton about the Nikkor lens attached to the 170. And the specs listed above are still rumor territory until the official announcement.

Both compliment the KeyMission 360 action camera with the 170 offering a direct competitor to the GoPro. Devil is in the details and the real world use cases. I’d expect to see these at Photokina along with enough camera news to keep all of us staring at the bank account wistfully.
