When Someone Asked Nikon - Why one slot?

Russian Photography website photo.ru taken interview (translated text below) of Nikon representative and asked several question to them, but one of my favorite was

And why one slot?
“We can see that even our closest competitors, Canon, are making a mirror with one slot for memory cards. 

Now the next question is about similar score of Nikon Z6 and A7III in DXO Mark Lab, and is Nikon Z6 is using a Sony made sensor ?

Well, let’s talk about the cameras already released. Z6 in the DXoMark rankings is lower than Sony AIII 1 point. We see that the performance of their sensors are the same for a number of factors. Your company and Sony employees unofficially told us that the cameras used the same sensor. Confirm or disprove this information.

– About DxO – we do not officially comment on DxO ratings, because it is an independent company, and we didn’t take our measurements, which we could compare. We certainly recognize that DxO is a large company, a large information portal that market users pay attention to. 
If we assume that their ratings and measurements are correct – then the question arises, what error is acceptable in the methodology? Are they sure, and are we sure that 1% – or 1 point out of 100 – is not an error? Are we sure that the measurement was carried out correctly?

In any case, we can say that, judging by the DxO rating, the performance of the matrices of the Nikon Z6 and Sony A7III cameras is identical. They are similar in technical characteristics. I think I answered your question.

Other main parts of the interview

About third party lenses for Nikon Mirrorless system

—- Nikon ecosystem is closed to third-party manufacturers. The company does not provide the source code and bayonet parameters to third-party manufacturers. 

What will happen to DSLR lineup now ?

— As one of our top managers said, the series of SLR cameras will definitely continue.

Why was the XQD slot chosen for the Z6 and Z7 cameras ?

—- We understand that XQD is a very reliable and fast format. It works stably at any speed, at any camera operating mode. It is not only good in performance, it is also good in reliability.

How long has Nikon been developing a mirrorless full-frame camera series?

—- From what I know: the Nikon mirrorless full-frame camera has been developed for several years, passed many tests.

Nikon Working on Multilayer Stacked CMOS Sensor

Nikon is working on multilayer sensor. This isn’t the first patent of Nikon Multuilayer sensor, we have also published a article back on January 2018  of Nikon multilyer stacked CMOS sensor.

Translated text from Patent – Nikon Working on Multilayer Stacked CMOS Sensor

 The upper photoelectric conversion layer 31 and the lower photoelectric conversion layer 32 are stacked on the same optical path. Upper photoelectric conversion layer 31 is composed of an organic photoelectric layer that absorbs light of a predetermined color component (the details will be described later) (photoelectric conversion).

 

We do hope Nikon will bring these new sensor tech to DSLR and Mirrorless cameras soon.

Nikon Hybrid Senors in Works for DSLRs and Mirrorless

We have published patents before about Nikon Hybrid Sensor for DSLRs. But, from the latest patents, its look like Nikon have created their own version of Dual Pixel CMOS AF System.

Nikon dedicated AF pixel ROW inside a DSLR sensor, most importantly if they are using the same mechanism as of DPAF . Then of-course we will have sensor without Dead Hybrid AF pixels.

from patent document: example, as shown in FIG. 10, the imaging device 22, an imaging device 221 for imaging, the focus detection pixels 222a for phase difference detection, and a 222b, the focus detection pixels 222a

Patent –

Nikon Sub-Pixel AF structure

Not only that, You can clearly see Nikon DSLR display with AF segments or you can say AF groups just like we have in Canon’s. But the sub pixel arrangement is entirely different from Canon, here every pixel isn’t divided into two sub pixels. Instead of that Nikon is using two pixels for AF work each on having a sub-pixel unit.

In every pixel you can see two sub-pixel division, looks similar to dual pixel CMOS AF tech were every two sub pixels are involved in AF.

Nikon Display with dedicated AF Zones

Nikon DSLR camera Display screen will be distributed in AF Zones. Once you click the display unit AF section the AF area will be automatically zoomed [optional feature].

 

For sure these new sensors tech will be implemented soon in upcoming Nikon DSLRs. Camera.
