After this teaser video became known yesterday, Nikon confirmed that it is working on a new mirrorless full-frame camera.
Nikon's official statement in the news is incredibly vague and sparks a lot of hype with phrases stating that the new camera will "allow for a new dimension of optical performance" and "reaffirms our commitment to photographers Possibility to capture, capture images that are richer and livelier than ever, "but do not let that distract you from the importance of this camera for the future of Nikon.
This is because Nikon and Canon have a stronghold on the DSLR market, but the category of SLRs is shrinking. Many large cinematographers agree that "full-frame mirroring" is becoming the norm "Mirrorless camera sales increased by 30 percent in 201
This brings us back to Nikon's upcoming full-frame mirror, which would not only be a debut for Nikon, but could also be a make-up. or Break Product for the Company Let's go through the small details that Nikon has previously announced, before venturing into further speculation.
The mirrorless full-frame part is self-evident, but Nikon has also announced That will work with a new lens series designed specifically for the mirrorless camera, which seems to be a mistake, because one of the biggest advantages Nikon's are all the lenses that the company has made in the last hundred years. However, Nikon added that it works on an F-mount adapter, which allows it to use its existing lenses on the new camera, although even with the best adapters, the image quality slightly decreases.
As with other details, the teaser video shows a body that looks like a mix between a Nikon DF and what you get from a high-end Sony Alpha (with a slightly larger grip), with dials left and right right of a built-in electronic viewfinder and a relatively large display on the back. And that's pretty much it. Nikon has also set up its own website to promote the upcoming camera, but unfortunately it does not contain any additional information.
Nikon Rumors posted a picture of what might be our first glimpse of the upcoming Nikon camera this week, and earlier this month reported that it will be available in two models: one with 24 MP or 25-MP sensor and one with a 45-MP sensor with higher resolution. The prices for the 45 MP variant are between 3,000 and 4,000 US dollars.
According to Nikon Rumors, there are initially three lenses for the new camera from Nikon, 35mm and 50mm Prime lenses at 1: 1.4 and a 24-70mm zoom lens. The size of the upcoming camera from Nikon should be similar to a Sony a7, but with better ergonomics.
Finally, Nikon says rumors that the camera could start shipping on the 23rd of August, which would be a good thing for Nikon. I've been suggesting for months that Canon plans to launch its own mirrorless full-size camera sometime later this year.
Phew, that's all for now. Did you hope to see, or do you think it's too late for Nikon (or Canon) to overtake Sony?
