I can't say this is surprising.

The Key Mission Camera appears to be the Nikon version of the Ford Edsel.  <_<

I dont know anyone who even considered one. Plus it didn't help it was a tough market to begin with.

That said we killed Nikon on these but maybe the R&D will help in future Nikon cameras and their video capabilities.

Talk about deciding to buy a ticket to sail, after the boat has long left the docks!

 

A still born product.

 

Development on this started just after GoPro started to decline.  Doomed from inception.  And, there is nothing special about it.

 

Surprised? Not in the least.  Surprised it took this long to bury it.
