  • I buy Nikon because of the great jpegs. I've had Fuji and they don't compare. Your examples are awful and not what you should be getting. Take a look at your Picture Controls settings. Nikon ...
  • Nobody knows. Who owns the rights to the Sony sensor design? If it's Sony (camera division) they might not let it be available. Is Nikon going to extend their trend for designing their own ...
  • Replied in No brainer ...
    Get a Z6ii kit including the 24-70 f4. That'll give you all the advantages of Z mirrorless plus an excellent example of S glass at a bargain price. You can play with the Z6 while continuing to use ...
  • There are good reasons for having both high quality EVF and high quality rear screen. Most photographers use both when available. The rear screen is generally more accurate when reviewing pics than...

  • If it is, then Nikon had better be prepared to produce the volumes required! If the specs are as predicted, they could sell at the same price as the opposition and still make a killing. To me this ...
  • Created discussion thread Zfc + 28mm received by WEX
    My order for the Zfc with 28mm is on its way from WEX in the UK, should receive it tomorrow :-D It's still showing as pre-order on their website.
  • I don't think it's clear, rather the reverse. I think Nikon has gone for cameras which fit their vision for the Z ecosystem. I think they deliberately avoided linking them to their DSLRs, and very ...
  • It appears an FTZ2 may be in the offing. If you can, might be worth waiting to see if it gives you more. It's possible it may be lighter and less bulky. If you're getting a Z camera, it's worth ...
  • Too late to talk you out of it :-( :-( :-(  As the RX100 slips out of your hand yet again, you poke at the tiny buttons, you peer into the tiny viewfinder, I hope you won't regret it ;-) Never ...
  • If he doesn't alter any of the defaults which the factory settings give (which I wouldn't recommend) then he isn't applying post-processing. I think the point is that there is something to be said ...
  • No. It depends on the resolution of the FX camera. So on a Z6, the DX crop will give you around 11mp output, significantly less than the 20mp of say the DX Z50, but on a Z7 the DX crop will give ...
  • That's what I would have thought, re ergonomics, and couldn't see myself buying Zfc for that reason, whatever the other attractions... ... BUT, I now have a problem with the right hand, such that ...
  • Very nicely done article. I built my current PC in 2012; still doing fine because I researched quality components and set the spec at, not the highest, but the next level down. But maybe I should...

  • It's your conclusion I would quarrel with. People often buy a camera with a specific purpose in mind. I did when I bought a Z50 in addition to my Z6. It does exactly what I bought it for. It isn't ...
  • Replied in Good for him...
    I shot film, mainly color print film once decent film and developing became available, and so trying to nail the shot first go became second nature. I'm still that way today. I aim to make each ...
  • Looks like you really want a straight comparison between the D5 and A9, and I don't think you've got it here :-( A few thoughts: (1) Waiting a couple of weeks to see what the Z9 brings makes sense, ...
  • Replied in Just buy it!
    Your needs are similar to mine. I've always liked having a camera I could just stuff in a rucksack pocket, if I wanted to. For 14 years it was the excellent Nikon Coolpix 8400, with its 24-85 ...
  • The Z9 is an out-and-out pro camera. There is definitely room for a top enthusiast / semi-pro camera below it, much as the D850 is to the D5. My guess is that'll be the Z8. I don't see a new Z7 ...
  • Is it underrated? A lot of the reviews I've read seem to like it. A lot.
  • Replied in Nikkor Z lens
    It's OK to buy a D500 and expensive lenses AND buy APS-C cameras with lighter and more compact bodies and lenses. I ditched the Z 24-200 lens because it didn't give the same quality on my Z6 as ...
