On photo Airborne Anna's in the High ISO challenge (12 comments in total)
In reply to:

ANAYV: Great shot!

Is ISO 3200 really middle of your limit...so ISO 6400 is max?
Not sure if this qualifies for this challenge, based on rules.

Great capture , regardless.

Oh I see. Thanks.
I posted mine , but too high ISO :)

SimonBlago: Good luck with f8 @400mm. Boy some folks @Canon smokes some serious ...
RF L f4 lenses @approx 1800-2000k euros and now this!!?? Canon user since T90 but this is ridiculous.

I shoot at f8 all the time.
What seems to be the problem?

For non pros...with modern camera...just raise ISO.
F8 is close... But not into diffraction on FF.

JasonTheBirder: I still have a ten-year old Panasonic lumix compact camera that works very well and I still use it for shots not in the birding range. Honestly I love these compact cameras and I would be very happy to use this camera. For those that don't want the mushy postprocessing engines of a phone, a camera like this is great.

I had the original version, with a 28mm lens and 16MP APS-C sensor.

I think I liked using my Panasonic LX3 more :)
Still have it...and DXO makes the RAW files much better.
Sharp lens on that camera.

Thoughts R Us: Cool! Can't wait.

Considering that the iPhone is the world's most use camera system, this is always an important event in the photographic world.

Also on that same day will be the launch of the Canon R3, albeit at a different time.

So it should be an interesting Sept 14.

Some care very little about Apple anything :)

My LG V20 still.works as new. Good cameras on it too.
Already has Image Stabilization...thats old tech for some :)

marc petzold: I never have this Issue. All my lenses using HQ UV Filters, or MC Protectors, so i never handle wipes onto the Front Lens Element. I've seen enough damaged coatings since the past >= 30 years. My Lenses stay always in great condition. One can't simply replace the Front Lens element, if it's being damaged, means vintage lenses, and all lenses, which have no more spare parts, out of production. The only thing i let on my Lenses or Bodies is my Rocket Blower. Never wet cleaning. It was never being needed since the 80s.

There was also an article about another topic, Sensor cleaning, which means literally someone is using wet swabs on the OLPF/AA Filterblock, and even way expensive wipes leave no 100% clean sensor, which is being noticeable. Dunno, if the article was on 35mmc, Casual photophile, or somewhere else...i post it when i find the link again.

Good Light.

See how we are all different , with different experiences.
I use lens pads, that come individually wrapped and have alcohol on them.

Been working great for my safety glasses for work, and also for my lenses.
Never use UV filters. I don't want nothing in front of the lens, to deteriorate the I.Q. Reflections can be a problem.

The front lens element is tough!
Did anyone here actually ever scratch it?
I never did.

Blow off dust and wipe with said pads...good to go.
No issues all these years. What works...well...it works. Nuf said
To each there own.
Peace

In reply to:

duchamp: A strange decision to compliment this camera with a 28mm FF lens and not a more compact 28mm (or 35mm) equivalent. I'd also like that Nikon would tend offering a bit more than the competition like a better AF, a better screen, a better battery life, better video specs (at least unlimited Full HD) and IBIS in any case today is a must. A weather sealed kit lens (hello Panasonic) could also be great.

IBIS is optional with this camera...as the Z DX kit lenses all have really good VR. Theres also at least one FX Z lens that has VR.

If the lenses had no VR ...then I could see your point

jetstream: Great camera, awaiting a 16mm pancake to go with the 28mm and MC 50mm, the only feature missing imho is sensor cleaning...

The 16-50mm kit lens is pretty much a pancake lens...well almost.

.Its small , light and sharper at 16mm than my Nikon AF-S 16-85mm lens. Well Z lenses are sharper than most every AF-S lens, for sure.

Aaron55: Not sure if worth the upgrade from z50

@Aaron55....No.....this is mostly the Z 50...but in a better ( much) looking body and some external.controls.
Better eye AF.....but otherwise...I will keep.using my Z 50 and deep grip with non slippery material :)

In reply to:

RolliPoli: Why not test with the z Nikkor 28mm as it would constitute a 'normal' focal length for this APSc body?
What lenses and focal lengths were used on the comparator cameras? Seems to me, a test like this is as much, or more, about lenses as it is about sensors and in body processing.

Only the AOV is not 28mm.
This is a FF lens...not a DX lens.

So its less appealing for the Z 50 and Z fc ...as it will give a 42mm AOV on these cameras.
On the FF Z cameras...then its a 28mm AOV lens.

In reply to:

AdamT: so brilliant in RAW but the usual smeary large radius JPG engine of old which Canon and Sony have managed to ditch . I guess its a balance of processing times to quality ratio but with only 20Mp and modern processors you`d think they could use little or no NR at low ISOs and use multi radius sharpening like the latest canons.. Smeary haloed JPGs with little fine detail ought to have gone by the wayside 10 years ago

@Adam T - Still its the RAW data that is good.
No real interest in jpegs for many folk.

I still say this is a good sensor...and good at high ISO.
( same as D500, D7500, Z 50)
Do you still not agree?

Karroly: Weirdly, this Z fc 21MP sensor not only shows more details than the 21MP Nikon D7500, the 21MP Nikon D5, but also some 24MP APS-C cameras.
Is the lens in front of it making the difference ? Or is there some technological improvement in the sensor design ? Or the lack of an antialias filter ?

@Urbex Mark Mine was the lesser DX version.
But seemed plenty sharp enough:

In reply to:

V R: Has anyone put beside the Zfc the Z50 which is supposed to be the same?
If you do and look at RAW, you’ll see that the Z fc definitely looks sharper!
But at high ISOs the noise also looks sharper. Is there some kind of noise reduction in the RAW engine that was differently calibrated on each one?

Shoot RAW and colors are what you want them to be.

I had the D7500..and now own the Z 50 ( same innards as this Z fc.

I believe its the Z lenses that make the difference.
I had the AF-P 70-300mm lens and the Z 50-250mm lens is sharper.

Sharper at 250mm than the AF-P lens is at 300mm.
And I thought that lens was quite sharp.
My thoughts

I assume previous I phones did have O.I.S..just not with folded optics.
If not...then another reason I am glad I dont use I phones.

Kiril Karaatanasov: When I wrote few days ago that Nikon ought to change their ways many did not think it is correct criticism.....

well now we see another angle to that.

Nikon need to think fresh and find their way. They release lackluster products that fail to impress and this is not good. Z mount failed. they need something different. May be go to making E and RF mount lenses instead? May be use E or RF mount instead......May be even partner up with Panasonic and Sigma on L mount. Z mount is a total flop.

If I were investor I would have insisted they change the photo unit dramatically and focus on making money in a growing sustainable way. Raising prices and loosing market share relying on old laurels and sympathies is not sustainable..

Z Mount didnt fail.
Z lenses are the best Nikon glass yet.
They were just last to venture into the mirrorless.market

Lensmate: Another nail in the coffin for the 'flat earth' and moon landing deniers!

No real evidence in evolution, either. Only in Theory. No one has ever seen one life form change into another.Ever

Adapt, mutate...but never a change.

Seems each creature is created after its own kind.

Anyone heard of this brand ?
So this is a 2x macro...so.a 2:1 ratio...image shot is about 2x actual size? Did I read this right?

Might be interesting to see this on a Z 50
90mm..and good macro...but how sharp?
