Ayer, 23-7-2018 os dije:
Extra, extra, así es la nueva “mirrorless FF” de Nikon: en busca de la luz – Pasad, mirad y sabedlo todo.
Seguro que el titular os habrá hecho perder por lo menos un latido. Si no fuera así este humilde “corre, ve y dile” se sentiría terriblemente fracasado.
Pues bien, en plan “teaser”, que viene a querer decir “amago pernicioso para que nos comamos las uñas”, el Sr.Nikon “amaga” como va a ser su nueva y flamante “mirrorles FF” que quien más quien menos espera como el fresquito de otoño.
No se ve nada, pero se ven cosas. Tal parece tener la pinta de una DSLR, y el capuchón superior sugiere un EVF de lo más serio. Crucemos los dedos.
Lo que si parece claro es que el Sr.Nikon le va a ganar otra vez la partida al Sr.Canon que aún no ha “amagado” nada de su propio asunto.
En este interesantísimo y explicito video inspirado entre “2001 una Odisea en el Espacio” y “La Guerra de las Galaxias” todas vuestras dudas quedarán disipadas. ¿ Alguien se lo ha creído ?
Bueno, sea como sea, y sea lo que sea, lo único cierto y verdad es que cada vez falta menos.
Aplauden con las orejan en:
por lo menos.
To be continued …………………… I hope as soon as posible.
Yo no suelo hacer estas cosas del “Control C + Control V”, al menos tan descaradamente, pero esta vez el guión lo exige.
Desde Nikon Rumors, va por Vds.
We are one week away from the rumored new Nikon full-frame mirrorless camera announcement. I have received some new pricing information, this time from Europe (I assume the prices are for a lens kit):
- Nikon 45MP full frame mirrorless camera: €4,000 (around $4,670, 20% VAT included in price)
- Nikon 24MP full frame mirrorless camera: €2,500 (around $2,900)
One possible (rumored) scenario is that 45MP Nikon mirrorless full-frame camera will be announced first (at the end of July) while the second 24MP Nikon mirrorless full-frame camera could be announced at Photokina. The shipping of at least one of the new Nikon mirrorless full-frame cameras is rumored to start at the end of August or in early September.
The upcoming mirrorless full-frame camera is rumored to be the most expensive Nikon marketing campaign ever with bloggers meetups in exotic locations and maybe even some celebrities involvement.
Here is a recap of the already rumored Nikon mirrorless full-frame camera details:
- Two Nikon full-frame mirrorless cameras expected: one with 24-25MP and one with 45MP (48MP is also a possibility) – I reported the two sensors configurations in October last year. BSI sensors (supposed to be a new tech with advanced AF).
- Similar body size to the Sony a7 camera but with better ergonomics and a better grip. Nikon is putting a lot of emphasis and effort into the shooting experience of the new mirrorless camera. The camera was designed with ergonomics in mind.
- 5-axis in-body stabilization
- New mirrorless mount. We already knew that, but the number I was given this time is 55mm. The Z-mount dimensions I reported a few months ago were 49mm for the actual opening and 65.4mm for the entire mount diameter.
- The new mirrorless mount will allow for f/0.95 lenses – remember the NOCT trademark and f/0.9 lens patents?
- Memory cards: XQD and CF Express – now this is a surprise for me, but it is what I have heard (ProGrade is coming with a CF Express card).
- EVF resolution: 3.6MP (update: I am not sure if this is MP or million dots, the translation could be wrong since the specs originally came from Asia)
- Initially, three lenses will be announced: 24-70mm f/4, 35mm and 50mm (I think the 35 and 50mm will be f/1.4). There is also talk about a 24mm, but it may come later.
- The 45MP model will be around $4,000/€4,000 in a kit with the 24-70mm lens.
- The 25MP model will be under $3,000/€3,000 (also with a lens).
- The official announcement is rumored for the end of July (on or around July 23rd) and shipping shortly after (August 23rd). Nikon turns 101 on July 25th. I can almost see their press release saying: “for the next 100 years we have a new mirrorless mount”.
- Over 400 AF points, not sure about the exact number, it should be somewhere between 430-450. The AF is supposed to be very fast.
- The rear LCD screen is tiltable just like the Nikon D850.
- There is a second LCD screen on the top of the camera (just like the Fuji X-H1 pictured above)
- My understanding is that there is only one selection wheel on top of the camera.
- The camera’s “prism” with the EVF is a bit less angular/smoother when compared to the Sony a7.
- I see 8K listed in the technical specifications, but it is hard for me to get the translation – I don’t think it’s for video, maybe 8K time-lapse just like the D850?
- The new Nikon mirrorless camera will have a nice finish and a very comfortable grip. The overall handling/feeling is supposed to be excellent – this is coming from somebody who is/has tested the camera.
- Most likely no built-in flash.
- The promo materials should include dancers/singers.
- Potential names: Z300 and Z500 (not confirmed at all, could be just a guess).
- Nikon is putting a lot of emphases and effort into the shooting experience of the new mirrorless camera (ergonomics, nice grip design, image stabilization, etc)
- 4K video
- Nikon is rumored to target directly the Sony A7/A7r line of cameras.
- The new Nikon mirrorless camera will have features/functions never introduced beforehand (not sure if this applies to Nikon, to mirrorless cameras or to the industry as general).
- At least one new/future mirrorless zoom lens will have power zoom (for video recording).
- The new Nikon mirrorless camera will definitely be on display at Photokina in September.
- I was told that Nikon is currently developing a large number of new mirrorless lenses and this is a priority.
- New Nikon mirrorless Z-mount – confirmed by multiple sources (could still be called something else). About the different Nikon mirrorless mount dimensions – we could be talking about different ways of measuring the same mirrorless mount: one of the numbers I was given was 55mm. The Z-mount dimensions I reported a few months ago were 49mm for the actual opening and 65.4mm for the entire mount diameter. All three number could be correct.
- Very sophisticated new F-mount adapter – also confirmed by multiple sources.
- Two electric AF motors (not confirmed yet).
- There is no word on a Nikon APS-C based mirrorless camera. In fact, the rumors I have been receiving in the past 6+ months have only been for a full frame solution.
Update – more specifications reported on July 23:
- Official announcement in the next few weeks (still no exact/confirmed date).
- Battery life is said to be worse than current Nikon DSLR cameras (obviously).
- The biggest problem could be that Nikon may not be able to meet demand as production facilities are not yet ramped up after the restructuring. Again, just a rumor that may or may not turn out to be true.
- Very good video AF features (no other details).
- Video AF will be different for the two mirrorless models (the cheaper version may have less AF goodies).
- AF tracking ability of the 45MP version on par with the current Sony A7 models.
- Another price, this time from the UK (body only): 45MP about £2,400, 24MP about £1,700.
- F-mount adaptor can be used with ANY Nikkor lens (G, E, I reported that a while back).
Coño, la verdad es que la cosa pinta bien ……………………….
Repito: To be continued …………………… I hope as soon as posible.
Y hoy, 24-7-2018 os digo:
Nikonistas y publico inquieto en general, reservad o en su caso vaciad de contenido vuestra agenda del día 23 de Agosto. Ese día estaremos todos de guardia delante de la pantalla para asistir al gran acontecimiento que pondrá un broche de oro al centenario del Sr.Nikon. Ese día está previsto el nacimiento de la familia Nikon Z y lo hará con hermanas mellizas, pero no univitelinas.
Más madera en:
Nota tonta: ya todos los espías hablan de la montura Nikon Z, que naturalmente será nueva y totalmente electrónica. Serán las nuevas cámaras la Nikon Z1 y Nikon Z2 ?
Nota más tonta aún: por mucho que se han esforzado el equipo de espías habitual y las lenguas de doble filo aseguran no haber encontrado ningún “teaser” y ni siquiera indicios de la homóloga de Canon, lo cual puede interpretarse en mi opinión como que “las cosas de palacio tienen su tempo y van despacio”, como siempre en el mundo Canon.
