Nikon has filed paperwork to delay the released of a Bluetooth remote control unit that it hasn’t yet formally announced.

The website Nokoshita discovered paperwork filed with the FCC in the United States requesting to delay the launch of the Nikon N16F1, a Bluetooth remote control for Nikon cameras. The paperwork states:

“We are requesting dismissal of the approved model FCC ID: CGJ1153EB which was issued in August 8, 2017, dueto the reasons stated below:Change of sales start date and the device has not been sold in any country yet, including USA. We will propose theFCC Certification as anew application with the same FCC Identifier.” (source: FCC)

A few months ago we wrote about the Nikon Bluetooth remote control unit when patents were discovered with copyright agencies.

No direct reason was stated for the delay, but perhaps it is being held back for a simultaneous launch with the long-rumoured Nikon full-frame mirrorless camera?
