The rumor in the photography circle is that Nikon is about to re-enter the mirrorless camera market in a serious way. Be on the lookout for their first ever high-end full-frame mirrorless camera ever. Nikon plans to introduce not one, but two full-frame mirrorless cameras this Thursday, August 23rd, The cameras are called the Z6 and Z7, and they will be introduced alongside three lenses designed for the new system.
If the rumors are true, the Z6 will be a high-speed, low-light model with a 24MP full-frame sensor. The rumored Z7 will be a high-resolution model with a 45MP full-frame sensor. Featuring a DSLR-style design and a large vari-angle touchscreen, these cameras don’t resemble any camera in Nikon’s lineup. The two cameras will also feature a new lens mount, which will also see a new line of Nikkor lenses that you’ll be able to find at Buydig.com. However, don’t worry loyal Nikon users, they will also have an adapter available for F-mount lenses. Nikon’s famous F-mount has been around since 1959, which will add to the variety of choices for photographers when it comes to lenses, both new and old.
The new cameras that will be available from Buydig.com will feature an autofocus system with over 400 AF points, however the exact number isn’t quite clear just yet. Other rumored specs include a 5-axis in-body stabilization system, 9fps burst shooting and an electronic viewfinder with a high-res 3.6-million-dot display.
While this all seems feasible, nothing official is yet known about the camera. We will all just have to wait and see what they reveal Thursday!
