This Is The Nikon Z50, An APS-C Mirrorless Camera In The Z Lineup

Nikon Z50

It’s real. Nikon is going to release a new mirrorless camera in the Z lineup.

After the Nikon Z 6 and Nikon Z 7, both featuring a full frame sensor, the Nikon Z50 is the first camera with an APS-C sensor. The Nikon Z50 is expected to be announced in a few days.

Will Canon follow Nikon and also announce a mirrorless camera with an APS-C sensor in the EOS R lineup? We think not. The difference between he two manufacturers is, Canon already has a successful mirrorless lineup with the EOS M system, Nikon has not. Although it’s technically feasible, it doesn’t make much sense for Canon.

Fujifilm Color Science vs Canon Color Science – A Quick Comparison

Fujifilm Color

Most of us think Canon has the best color science of all players in the industry. Period. Many of us think Fujifilm follows close up.

Denae & Andrew posted a rather interesting video where they compare Canon and Fujifilm colors. They used a Canon EOS RP and a Fujifilm X-T3 for the test. Both raw and JPEG files are compared, though it makes more sense with JPEG images in our opinion (at 5:37min in the video). One thing I like a lot in Fujfilm cameras are the film simulations. Wish Canon would feature something similar on their cameras.

According to the comments to the video, people seem to like Canon colors more. What do you think?
