Patent Details Translated

The present invention relates to an imaging apparatus.
A technique for determining exposure by referring to luminance in an AF (autofocus) area is known

The user selects the photometry mode by the photometry mode selection unit 216. The user can select the desired photometry mode by operating the photometry mode selection unit. However, in the camera control unit 201, a plurality of photometry methods are sequentially executed.

Examples of photometry modes that can be selected by the user include multi-pattern photometry and highlight-weighted photometry.
Multi-pattern metering is a mode in which metering is performed for each of a plurality of areas set on the screen, and final exposure is determined based on information such as luminance distribution, color, distance, and composition of the subject.
Highlight-weighted metering is a mode in which exposure is mainly determined so that highlights on the screen have appropriate brightness.
In general, when exposure control is performed so that a highlight portion in a screen has an appropriate brightness, exposure is darker in the highlight-weighted metering method than in multi-pattern metering.

COVID 19 impact on Nikon

Nikon recently issued a press release that clearly mentions issues in the supply chain due to COVID 19 outbreak.

Impact on Nikon

Due to the COVID 19 outbreak, we may notice a delay in the upcoming DSLRs and Mirrorless Cameras. Due to very limited supply chains available at this moment, Nikon may halt the announcement of Nikon Z9, Z8 and Nikon Z30 Mirrorless cameras.

Upcoming Cameras of 2020

Upcoming Camera list from Tonynorthup, They have done goof prediction of upcoming Major cameras. Have a look and do share your thoughts with us.

1. Olympus Upcoming Camera 2020

  • The entry model Olympus E-M10 Mark IV comes at $ 500 or less. In general, Olympus updates its entry-level camera every two to three years, so Olympus E-M10 Mark IV may arrive this year. Olympus does not tend to implement new features inside entry-level models, so there is nothing new and I think it will be a cute and fun camera to use.

2. Upcoming Panasonic Camera 2020

  • Panasonic GH6 specs are expected to be 16: 9 6K30fps, 4K60fps without a crop, RAW video, 4: 2: 2 10bit. S1H 6K video will be adopted in a smaller package. The price is expected to be around $ 2,500. The G10 (successor to the G9) inherits 6K video from the GH6, but the advanced video functions are omitted and the specifications are closer to single-lens reflex (still).

3. Upcoming Fuji Camera 2020

  • Fujifilm X-H2 rumors are silent now, they think the X-H series will end.

4. Upcoming Nikon Camera 2020

  • I think Nikon will introduce an entry-sized Z5. The price will be around $ 1,500. The camera will feature a 24MP sensor, continuous shooting at 5 fps, 4K30fps, no IBIS, 1 SD card slot, low-end EVF. A camera that competes with the EOS RP.
  • I don’t think the D500 successor will appear in 2020. The D500 is not as interesting as the D750 and D850.

5. Upcoming Canon Camera 2020

  • Maybe Canon will issue 5D Mark V, an EF + RF compatible mounter (Hybrid mount ?), to encourage existing EF mount users to switch to RF mounts. The 5D V has a 4K video with all pixels readout and a hybrid finder. The price is expected to be around $ 3,500.
  • Canon will introduce a professional-grade studio camera EOS RS with a 75MP sensor. Continuous shooting is 6 frames / sec., CFastx1 SDx1, no camera shake correction in the body, and 4K crop.

6. Upcoming Sony Camera 2020

  • Sony is evolving at a slower pace, and the α7 IV, like the α9 II, is expected to be a slightly improved model with slightly improved AF and dust and drip proofing. Two UHS-II compatible slots, priced at $ 2000.
  • The α7S III is a video-oriented camera with improved dust-proof and drip-proof, equipped with 4K60fps 4: 2: 2 10bit video mode. Equipped with two UHS-II compatible slots, no flip-up flip monitor is adopted. AF is greatly improved and real-time pupil tracking is adopted. The number of pixels remains at 12MP. The price is $ 4000.

 

Reasons: Why Nikon D6 Doesn't Have Sensor Shift Image Stabilization

Before the announcement of Nikon D6 DSLR camera, Nikon Rumor Mill said that Nikon D6 do have IBIS and it will arrive with it. But, at the time of announcement everyone was surprised that why Nikon D6 doesn’t have IBIS.  SO, here is your answer coming from

Vice President of Nikon Europe take on absense of IBIS inside Nikon D6

The main target users of the D6 are sports, wildlife and press photographers, who use the Optical viewfinder in most cases. Generally, image sensor stabilization leads to a gap between the optical viewfinder and the image sensor. This gap becomes more noticeable when telephoto lenses are used. With this in mind, we believed that image sensor stabilization was not a requirement for the D6 and decided not to implement it.

In short Nikon Says: We were not able to add IBIS inside Nikon D6. BTW, Pentax K1 DSLR [Wiki | B&H] was announced back Feb 2016, and it was first Fullframe Sensor DSLR to have 5 axis IBIS inside. Nikon at least can do reverse engineering with that model ?

Q. Maybe if your intention was only to do an evolutionary upgrade, naming the camera D5S would have made more sense (just like you have done in the past) and not bring in so much fire?

A. We only make a major model number update when the performance has greatly improved. The D6 has the best AF system among Nikon cameras. Furthermore, the image processing engine and operability have been updated and new connectivity functions like Wi-Fi and GPS have been newly added. Considering the many updates, we decided to name this camera the D6. The D6 has a high reputation especially among sports, wildlife, and press photographers because of its improved speed and AF precision powered by the new AF system.

We will be updating you with more details soon.

DECISIVE POWER. FASTER WORKFLOW. ABSOLUTE RELIABILITY: THE NEW NIKON D6 GIVES PROFESSIONALS THE EDGE WHEN IT MATTERS MOST

The New Nikon D6 Offers the Most Powerful AF System in Nikon’s History, and Continues the Brand Legacy of Professional Cameras That Deliver Connectivity, Dependability and Streamlined Workflow

MELVILLE, NY (February 11, 2020) – Today, Nikon Inc. has unveiled the D6, a new professional-grade DSLR built for those in need of extreme reliability and ultimate performance. The D6 addresses the needs of professionals and press agencies and is faster and more powerful than ever before. Offering the most powerful AF system in Nikon’s history, this flagship DSLR camera delivers crucial improvements to modern workflow while also accelerating file transfer capabilities. Promising unparalleled low-light performance, powerful agility, advanced 4K UHD multimedia capabilities and a mechanical shutter frame rate boosted to a staggering 14fps, the D6 will redefine the way pros work.

“The D6 is purpose-built and inspired by the valuable feedback of professional users,” said Jay Vannatter, Executive Vice President of Nikon Inc. “The world relies on photojournalists and professionals to document every corner of the globe through impactful images; Nikon cameras are trusted to stand up to any job and help photographers capture the shot, time and time again.”

The Most Powerful AF in Nikon’s History: The D6 leaves nothing to chance. To maximize hit rate, it is equipped with a newly developed, densely packed 105-point AF system in which all the focus points utilize cross-type sensors and all points are selectable. Through the new focus point layout and the use of a triple-sensor arrangement for each focus point, the D6 achieves AF coverage that is approximately 1.6x denser than that of the D5. The D6 also sports an expanded focus detection range which increases the detection area for single point AF and dynamic area AF, making it easier to achieve focus on a subject even when slightly outside the focus point.

Improving upon Nikon’s popular Group AF mode, this function has evolved with support for 17 custom arrangements from which users can choose according to the scene or subject movement. The D6 also demonstrates superior low-light AF performance. The center focus point works down to -4.5 EV1 and the others to -4 EV, making autofocus possible even in dark situations or with low-contrast subjects.

Unparalleled Performance: The new EXPEED 6 engine’s superior image-processing capabilities combined with the vast amount of information provided by the new dedicated AF engine drives high-level performance in any situation. To help capture the decisive moment consistently, the D6 boasts a 14fps2 mechanical shutter with full AF and AE. The D6 can also shoot completely silent for sensitive situations, capturing full resolution at 10.5 fps. For faster frame rates, the Nikon D6 is able to take 2-megapixel images at approx. 60 fps and 8-megapixel images at 30 fps in Live View mode.

The D6 leverages a 20.8-megapixel FX-Format CMOS sensor, creating images that pop with stunning detail and true colors and exhibit incredible dynamic range. The ISO ranges from 100 to 102,400, which helps to preserve sharpness and subtle details in even the most challenging light. Additionally, ISO is expandable up to 3.2 million, giving photographers the ability to truly conquer the dark.

Concentration on Workflow: Building on Nikon’s history of serving professionals, the D6 is the most customizable Nikon DSLR yet, designed to speed up the workflow of any user during and after capture.

  • Recall shooting functions create combinations of settings that can be assigned to a specific button to get the perfect shot in a pinch
  • The D6 excels in connectivity and supports the same 1000BASE-T Ethernet standard as the D5, with an approximate 15% increase in transmission speed. The camera also supports a number of options for wireless networking, offering built-in 2.4- and 5-GHz*3 Wi-Fi®4 or traditional wireless transfer using the WT-6 Wireless Transmitter (optional)
  • Includes 14 customizable buttons, assignable to any of 46 unique function choices and a new intuitive menu system
  • Priority Image Transfer gives the ability to move an important image to the front of the queue when speed is of paramount priority, which can easily be done by swiping the touch LCD during playback
  • Security Lock compatibility supports connection of anti-theft cables to provide maximum security for remote applications or when the camera is unattended
  • Built in GPS5 gives accurate time, date and location information for just about anywhere on the planet
  • Dual CFexpress6 slots offer blazing fast read/write times and have the ability to overflow, copy or separate file types
  • JPEG functions allow for the simultaneous recording of two JPEG images with different image size and quality settings, which is convenient for separating images that will be transmitted from those that will be edited
  • Creativity options for multimedia creators including a new interval timer mode to retain the best resolution and enable in-camera time-lapse movie file recording providing professionals the ability to create exceptionally sharp 16:9 4K Ultra HD video

Absolute Reliability: Nikon’s flagship cameras remain trusted in the industry and have been proven on the sidelines, in the studio and even in outer space. With a magnesium alloy camera body and extensively weather-sealed design, the D6 is as tough as the professionals who use it, ready to take on the harshest shooting conditions. The camera offers long-lasting battery life, delivering the safety net and energy-saving performance that pros need on daylong outings. The D6 also employs a USB-Type C connector for faster direct-to-PC file transfer rates than previously possible with the D5.

Endless Lens Choices: By pairing the D6 with Nikon’s extremely diverse selection of F-Mount NIKKOR telephoto lenses, professionals have the most advanced imaging solution in Nikon’s history. No matter the job, the client or the location, there’s a NIKKOR lens, from the ultra-wide to the super-telephoto. The D6 is also compatible with Nikon’s line of creative Speedlights, offering extra creative freedom to enhance natural light and add artistry and drama to any scene.
