Nikon Affordable Fullframe Mirrorless Camera hasn't arrived yet

Nikon Affordable FUllframe Mirrorless

In a latest interview Nikon representatives clearly hinted that there will be models below Nikon Z6, and Nikon APS-C Sensor based Mirrorless cameras are also coming.  So, we now have Nikon  Z6 Mirrorless camera (body) priced at $1996 (B&H | Amazon.com) and with 24-70mm F4 lens you have to pay $600 extra to grab the entire kit.  When Nikon hinted a model below Z6, its a clear indication that we will sure have a camera somewhere around $1500 to attract Pro APS-C user base and will sure bring more new users to Nikon.

Interview with a Nikon executive [Major Points]

“I cannot confirm that, yes, we are doing a DX, but there will be models below the Z6. We will widen up the range to different users and different price brackets, definitely…”

“But having an S-line suggests that there should also be something else; non-S-line lenses, which will focus more on affordability.”

“On the DSLR we could have chosen sensor-based VR because that technology exists already, but we chose lens VR because you then have the stable view in the optical viewfinder.”

“Basically, if we had added the second card slot the camera would have been bigger – and we didn’t want that.”

“Because of the new mount, actually you cannot make an apple-with-apple comparison of an f/1.8 lens with this system with an f/1.8 lens for a DSLR, because the f/1.8 from thew Z mount is more similar to the kind of image quality you’d get from an f/1.4 on a DSLR. So that’s really never-seen-before image quality.”

“What we can see now is that the back orders for the Z7 are higher – maybe 60% to 40% for the Z6.”

One of the best thing I really like is the introduction of big mount, even the Nikon executive said that even when you are using F1.8 lens on Nikon Z-mount camera you will get output similar a DSLR F1.4 lens.

We will update you soon as we get any new information related to upcoming cameras.

Fuji GFX 100 Megapixel Hybrid AF, Medium Format Camera Coming in 2019

Development Announcement from Fuji: Finally Fujifilm is developing their flagship 100 megapixel medium format mirrorless camera, you can say it’s ultimate gfx series medium format camera, which is schedule to arrive in the year of 2019 with a very high price tag.

One of the most interesting thing that we have seen in the prototypes  The camera do features 5 Axis image stabilization system and phase detect autofocus pixels inside the hundred megapixel medium format sensor.

 

One of the most important thing that we have already seen the medium format sensor announcement from Sony in the past year,  but those 100 megapixel medium format BSI CMOS sensors or you can say the hundred 50 MB BSI CMOS sensor doesn’t feature built-in phase detect autofocus pixels.

If Fuji film is promising for Phase detect autofocus system in there medium format camera, it’s a clear indication that they have self develop their sensor with their own homegrown Technologies.  Possibly the GFX camera will be the first to carry a medium format X-trance sensor, And personally I would love to see X- trans medium format sensor performance when compared to earth medium format BSI sensor performance in near future.

One of the most important thing to know that the camera is also capable to record high quality 4K videos. And at the same time you will have a blazing fast autofocusing speed while creating your 4K videos, thanks to the built-in Hybrid AF Sensor.

And finally we have also got a confirmation from Fuji representatives that all the possible set ofGFX lenses present now and expected to arrive in near future are  fully capable to resolve 100 megapixel resolution without an issue.

So, finally we are having a very competitive player in the medium format Battleground, and the space is still empty because we have hasselblad we Phase one but none of them have any promise things system like Fuji GFX system.

We do got some rumours that Phase one is also developing their lineup of medium format mirrorless camera but it still about to be confirmed.

Now one of the most disappointing thing related to the announcement of the so-called hundred megapixel medium format camera is its price, she said the camera will going to cost $10,000 which is of course very high,  but at the same time if you compare the cost of the camera with the existing medium format professional solutions available via Phase ONE and hasselblad then you will find it reasonable.

we will update you soon as we get any development announcement or leaves related to the upcoming hundred megapixel medium format camera from Fujifilm.

L-Mount Alliance is now Official: Press Release

It’s confirmed now, Panasonic, Leica and Sigma Joined hands with each other to give a tough competition to existing fullframe mirrorless market. We have told you few days back, that Leica is planning to announce two new fullframe mirrorless camera while having the Leica L-Mount and very soon Sigma will also going the gang with their lenses and cameras (already published).

Finally the L-Mount Alliance German press release is leaked, we are putting the google translated version below

L-Mount Alliance Press Release

L-Mount Alliance: Strategic cooperation between Leica Camera, Panasonic and Sigma

One day before the official launch of photokina 2018, Leica Camera AG, Panasonic and Sigma announced a strategic partnership at the company’s press conference. The “L-Mount Alliance” is an unprecedented way of working together and will be particularly beneficial to the customers of the three companies. It allows Panasonic and Sigma to use the L-mount standard developed by Leica for their own developments and thus also offer cameras and optics with this lens mount. Through the joint efforts of the three partners, the alliance will significantly contribute to the importance of the L-Mount standard for the world of photography
Due to their numerous interchangeable components, system cameras allow a very flexible use and can be individually configured according to requirements. The bayonet is the most important interface, as the lens has a significant impact on the imaging performance and therefore on the final image quality. The strategic partnership between Leica, Panasonic and Sigma will allow customers to use a wider range of cameras and lenses in the future without compromising on so far to have to specify individual manufacturers, because they use propriety bayonets.

Dr. Andreas Kaufmann, Chairman of the Supervisory Board and majority shareholder, Leica Camera AG: “Photographers are extremely important for their chosen camera system. Particularly in the increasingly growing market for mirrorless system cameras, there is an ever-increasing variety of different requirements on the part of the users. In order to be able to meet these requirements at short notice, we have decided to work together with renowned partners from the photographic industry.
With Panasonic we have many years of partnership and trusting cooperation and their expertise in electronics is undisputed. Sigma is also a respected company, which has established itself particularly in the field of optical development and with its innovative products, a perfect complement to our existing L-Mount portfolio can. We believe that together with our partners, we can achieve mutual and sustainable growth for all our products. ”
Mr. Tetsuro Homma, Senior Managing Executive Officer, Panasonic Corporation, said: “Panasonic’s focus has always been to revolutionize the camera market and make photographers’ lives easier, more advanced, and more enjoyable. Our long-standing partnership with Leica has resulted in numerous high-performance, high-end digital cameras, combining Leica’s leading optical technology with Panasonic’s digital technologies. This partnership has enabled us to drive the development of excellent digital photography products. The L-Mount alliance with Leica and Sigma is a prime example of the power of our collaboration. This alliance of strong companies will fundamentally change the future of the photography industry. As a market challenger, we have always driven innovation with the slogan ‘Changing Photography’ to meet the high expectations of professional photographers. Our
Partnering with Leica and Sigma will provide additional business opportunities for our companies, but above all, it will continue to bring great pleasure to our customers in photography. ”

Mr.Kazuto Yamaki, Chief Executive Officer, SIGMACorporation: “As cameras evolve toward digital and mirrorless, user and system requirements have also changed. Currently, there is an almost overwhelming choice of different systems that, however, do not yet meet all the needs of users, especially in terms of extensibility and flexibility. SIGMA joins this alliance to develop mirrorless cameras that benefit from the flange distance. As SIGMA seeks to develop high-quality and innovative high-performance products, this alliance will greatly enhance both the implementation and expandability of our camera system, significantly increasing the value to our customers. Leica is a great company and has had a significant impact on photography for more than 100 years, and Panasonic is a leader in many different areas because of its proven track record. Combined with SIGMA’s high quality, high performance and unique products, the L-Mount will become an extremely attractive system for potential users. ”

About the L-mount

The L-Mount was developed by Leica Camera to provide customers with a future-proof, flexible, robust and precise bayonet that will meet even the most demanding photographic requirements. After its initial launch in 2014 in the Leica T, the L-Mount has been continuously developed by Leica Camera and its partners, resulting in improved and quasi-new L-Mount technology.

For the widest possible variety of products, the diameter of the L-mount was dimensioned at 51.6 millimeters, making it suitable not only for full-frame cameras but also for APS-C sensors. The small footprint of only 20 millimeters allows for a small distance between optics and sensor, making lenses much more compact – particularly useful for wide angle development. To withstand even the heaviest loads and to guarantee maximum safety for customers over many years of intensive use, camera bayonets become wear resistant Stainless steel and with four flange segments, which prevents tilting and ensures a particularly firm and flat fit of the lens. The standardized L-Mount contact strip ensures smooth communication between the electronic components in the lens and the camera, including the possibility of firmware updates for lenses, in order to react to technical developments and thus ensure full performance in the future.

Currently, the Leica SL system in full format and the APS system with camera models Leica CL, TL2 and TLde use the lens mount. All the optics of the different systems can be operated without restrictions and without adapters on all cameras – here is already one of the many advantages that customers have through the unified bayonet.In the near future, both the Leica CameraAG, as well as Panasonic and Sigma announce other products using the same standard.
