Nikon press release:

The functionality and performance of Nikon’s flagship mirrorless camera, condensed into an agile body

TOKYO – Nikon Corporation (Nikon) is pleased to announce the release of the full-frame/FX-format Nikon Z 8 mirrorless camera.

The Z 8 condenses the advanced functionality and performance of the flagship Nikon Z 9 into a compact and lightweight body while also maintaining superior robustness and reliability. The Z 8 is ideal for a variety of image creators who seek new possibilities for visual expression in a wide range of genres and subjects, such as landscapes, wild birds, airplanes, portraits, and weddings. Whether shooting stills or video, the excellent agility of the Z 8 enables nimble camerawork, realizing superior operability that allows users to push their creativity further. On top of this, its reliable performance allows users to capture decisive moments and achieve outstanding image depiction.

Nikon will continue to pursue a new dimension in optical performance while meeting users’ needs, contributing to the development of imaging culture, with the hope of expanding possibilities for imaging expression.

Primary features

1. Comfortable operability that is ideal for diverse shooting situations

The advanced functionality and performance of the Z 9 are incorporated into a compact camera body that is approx. 30% smaller than the flagship model. The downsized body has been engineered to retain the easy-to-hold grip as well as comfortable operability. This enables agile and stable camerawork in a wide variety of shooting scenes, even with a super-telephoto lens attached. In addition, the 4-axis tilting monitor delivers high operability when shooting from high and low angles in both horizontal and vertical positions.
For video recording, the Z 8 can record 12-bit RAW and 10-bit Apple ProRes 422 HQ video in-camera, allowing users to take advantage of a minimal video recording system that does not require an external recorder. The flexible combinations of shooting equipment suit various shooting styles to streamline operations. With the MC-N10 Remote Grip (sold separately) attached, solo videographers can take advantage of having more control over how they can operate the camera — in a way that was previously difficult on their own. Furthermore, by taking advantage of the wide-ranging accessory lineup and high compatibility with products from accessory brands, users can operate the Z 8 as comfortably as if it were a dedicated video camera.

Canon Reveals The Shape Of The Upcoming PowerShot V10

PowerShot V10.

A few days before the announcement Canon releases a new teaser for what we think will be the Canon PowerShot V10.

The new teaser is on top. The announcement is expected for May, 11, 2023. Not much can be seen in the teaser image. But let’s have a look on a brighter images of the teaser, below.

A shape is now visible, but still doesn’t reveal much. It’s looks like a relatively large lens mounted on a box shaped camera body. Does it look like a GoPro? No idea. It’s touted as a camera for vloggers, so maybe not.

Any ideas?

Canon Set To Replace Canon EOS R5 With Two Models?

Nab 2023 Canon Eos R5 Mark Ii Canon Eos R8 Mark Ii Canon EOS Rf 24-50mm R6 Mark Ii Rf Mount Eos R6 Mark Ii Rf 300mm Rf 35mm Canon Eos R100 Rf 24mm F/1.8 Rf-s Canon Eos R7 Eos R100 Canon High Resolution Eos R R10 Eos C5 Canon Canon Eos R1 Eos R5c Canon Rf 16mm Rf 35mm F/1.2L EF Lenses Tilt-shift Lenses Rumor

A new, low rated rumor emerged from the interweb of rumor mills. The EOS R5 might get replaced by two different models.

Rumor has it that Canon might replace the EOS R5 with two different models. Says the source of the rumor:

We have been told by an anonymous source that Canon is planning to replace the EOS R5 with two models. This is not unprecedented, as we saw what Canon did with the EOS 5D Mark III. If you remember, Canon added both the EOS 5DS R and EOS 5DS to give us 5D series options.

[…] The source claims that Canon will release a EOS R5 Mark II along with a higher resolution model, perhaps the unicorn that is the EOS R5s?

Don’t know what to think. You?
