Interesting: Nikon to release a new camera with GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System)

Interesting: Nikon to release a new camera with GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System)

I have already reported on the new Nikon N2014 camera being registered with different government agencies.  The latest bit of information on that camera is actually very interesting – in addition to Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, the N2014 will be also equipped with GNSS (GNSS stands for Global Navigation Satellite System. As far as I know, no other manufacturer uses GNSS in their cameras. Could the N2014 be the upcoming Nikon Z9?

See what is the difference between GNSS and GPS):

Nikon Z7II IBIS performance compared to other cameras

Nikon Z7II IBIS performance compared to other cameras


The German Foto Magazin published in their August edition (available on Amazon) an interesting test comparing the IBIS of the Nikon Z7II with other mirrorless cameras. The Nikon Z7II was the best performer with perfect results up to 7 EV (they promised only up to 5 EV). Canon and Sony didn‘t reach their expectations. The Sony A9 camera actually looked disappointing (green=very good, yellow=good/OK, red=not sharp, click for larger view):

Review: Voking VK360N flash for Nikon cameras

Review: Voking VK360N flash for Nikon cameras


Voking VK360N flash for Nikon cameras review by Bill Hall (see previous reviews):

Did you ever put an external flash on your mirrorless Nikon camera and thought, gosh! That thing’s as big as my camera! Well, the Voking VK360N, now available for Nikon cameras, and also available for other cameras, is a compact but fully featured flash that looks more in place with a compact camera. It’s also handy as a travel companion on a larger DSLR. Either way, you won’t give up functionality for convenience.

This flash is compatible with any camera that has a Nikon hot-shoe. With its small size, a full feature set, and at a current price of $45.99 on Amazon, this flash should appeal to a broad spectrum of photographers. It is compatible with the latest Nikon professional full-frame DSLR cameras such as the D5, D6, D850, and the APS-C cameras such as the D500. It’s also compatible with the mirrorless Z 50, Z 5, Z 6, Z 7, Z 6ii, and Z7ii cameras. And it is compatible with the D3400, D3300, D3200, D5600, D750, D7200, D5300, D5500, D7100, D3100, and other Nikon DSLR cameras. For more information visit the Amazon product listing.

Nikon’s not yet announced camera N2014 has also been registered with SDPPI in Indonesia. My guess is that this is the upcoming Nikon Z9 or the rumored entry-level APS-C model (Z30?). The Nikon Z fc camera that was recently announced was registered under N2016. (via Nokishita)

Nikon Z9: 45MP and 30 fps?

Nikon Z9: 45MP and 30 fps?


From the very beginning, I have been getting conflicting information on the sensor size of the upcoming Nikon Z9 professional mirrorless camera. Nikon only told us that it will be a “newly developed high-resolution stacked FX sensor”. The rumor was that three different sensors were tested: 45-46MP, 50MP, and 60MP. The latest info I received is that the Z9 will have a 45MP sensor that will allow up to 30 fps (previous rumors indicated “only” 20 fps). Here is an updated recap of the Nikon Z9 rumored specifications so far:

Newly developed 45MP high-resolution stacked FX sensor30 fpsIntegrated vertical grip handleThe Z9 is described as a D6 body combined with EOS R5 imaging, α9II AF, and blackout-free EVFNikon confirmed that the Z9 will be better than the D6Multishot-mode16-bit RAW option8k30p, 4k120/60/30p (support for 8K video recording)New EXPEED image-processing engine designed for 8k (newly developed Imaging Pipeline Processor to broaden sensor readout emphasizing speed)Improved AF (Object detection AF)“Stunning” AF tracking (better than the D6)Advanced real-time trackingTwo XQD/CFX type B memory card slotsISO 64 – 25,600, Hi1, Hi2Improved noise levels and specifically significantly better dynamic rangeHigh resolution, blackout-free EVF: probably 5.76 MP or maybe even 9k MP viewfinder, 120 Hz refresh rate (the resolution can be reduced to increase the refresh rate)New user interface (no second LCD screen on the back like the D6)New battery: Nikon EN-EL18xGbit LAN, USB-C, WiFi, GPS, built-in transmitterPrice: $6,000 – $7,000Scheduled to be tested in AugustRumored to be announced in November/December (no exact shipping date available so far)

Xitek’s interview with Nikon: the new 50mm f/2.8 MC lens is compatible with the ES-2, no plans for macro teleconverters and more

Xitek’s interview with Nikon: the new 50mm f/2.8 MC lens is compatible with the ES-2, no plans for macro teleconverters and more


Last month the Chinese website Xitek published an interview with Nikon regarding the development of the new NIKKOR Z MC 105mm f /2.8 VR S and NIKKOR Z MC 50mm f /2.8 mirrorless macro lenses. There are some interesting points made, for example: the new 50mm f/2.8 MC lens is compatible with the Nikon ES-2 film digitalizing adapter (several readers have asked me about that). Here is a recap of the interview:

Is it an improvement from AF-S 105mm?
It is a completely new design to meet the expectations of users.What is the secret to making it smaller and lighter?
The material of the lens body has been changed, and it has been realized with an aluminum alloy mount and a newly developed stepping motor. Despite its weight reduction, it ensures strength, durability, and optical performance.Some people used teleconverters for F-mounts, but is there a dedicated teleconverter?
So far, there is no such plan. It was not compatible with teleconverters in order to achieve optical performance, AF performance, and weight reduction.Speaking of lenses, we emphasize the opening performance of the maximum aperture, but do you think that the resolution when the lens is stopped down is also important for macro lenses?
The two lenses announced this time are excellent not only in optical performance with the aperture open, but also in suppressing aberrations when the aperture is stopped down. Even if you use a small aperture like the F11, the difference from the current model is obvious.Is it compatible with ES-2?
50mm F2.8 is supported, but 105mm is not.What are the main design differences between 50mm F2.8 and 50mm F1.8?
Although it is compact and lightweight, it maintains high resolution from infinity to 1x and low optical performance with little aberration. It is suitable for close-ups of subjects that are prone to bleeding, such as jewelry and watches.Regarding the disappearance of the F-mount ring,
S-Line does not adopt the ring design. Newly adopted S-Line logo and dark silver ring. I intend to make use of this design in the future, but the super-telephoto lens may change in the future.Is the “S” logo changed?
The design has been redesigned. Adjusted the size ratio to better convey the impression of S-Line. We want to realize a more luxurious design.What is the effect of the combination of 105mm in-lens image stabilization and in-body image stabilization?
There is no change in the performance value of image stabilization, but the correction effect improves in conjunction with the 5-axis in-body image stabilization.Does the effect of image stabilization change depending on the shooting distance?
The shorter the shooting distance, the smaller the correction effect.Dust-proof and drip-proof
105mm has a high dust-proof and drip-proof property by sealing the moving parts. 50mm is designed to prevent water droplets and dust from entering the main body.Why is there no lens with the same magnification or larger?
The magnification is set to the same size in consideration of the balance between optical performance, AF performance, and weight reduction.

Nikon Z6II and Z7II firmware updates with new real-time tracking rumored to be released in September

Nikon Z6II and Z7II firmware updates with new real-time tracking rumored to be released in September


A while back I mentioned in a blog post about new upcoming Nikon Z6II and Z7II firmware updates. The rumored updates are expected to be out in September and will introduce new real-time tracking – this will be a simpler version of the real-time tracking system that will be implemented in the Nikon Z9.

I don’t have all the details, but Nikon’s real-time tracking should be similar (but better) to their 3D tracking available in high-end DSLR cameras. As far as I know, Sony is the only company today that offers real-time tracking in some of their models like the a6400 and a9 (please correct me in the comments section if I am wrong – I do not really follow Sony that closely). Here are some Sony videos explaining how real-time tracking works:

Stay tuned for more details.

Weekly Nikon news flash #632

Weekly Nikon news flash #632


Venus Optics Laowa Argus 33mm f/0.95 CF APO lens (APS-C) for Nikon Z-mount sample photos at Lenstip.

→ The new Nikon Z fc is really hot in Hong Kong – see this DCFever article (translated):

People usually would place deposit after the local price and delivery date are officially announced. However, in Hong Kong, people already placed deposits to the stores even though the local price and launch date is not yet confirmed. The queue of buying the new Z fc, according to the news, is “not short”. One of the editor of this website alleged that he failed to get the “first batch” of Z fc even though they have placed the pre-order deposit recently. This situation is very rare in recent years, especially during this poor economic situation and the shrinking photography industry. In addition, it is also rare to have buying queue for entry-to-mid level camera.
