The other day Jared Polin posted one of his Eye AF tests, and I was blown away at how well the Nikon Z7 kept up. I always thought the Z7 was much further behind based on what everyone has said about that camera. This test shows something else.
The Canon R5 is the latest and greatest of the high megapixel cameras with some pretty impressive features on both the stills and video fronts.
While Canon's latest sensor looks to have caught up to the competition what about their video?
One of the ways I keep tabs on the camera industry and how things are going with different brands is through my Google Analytics.
Aside from some of the consumer products like GoPros and smartphones, the Nikon Z6/Z7 is the #1 hit article I have for memory cards. Meaning, a lot of people are buying the Nikon Z6 and Z7 right now.
The Nikon 50mm f1.8 S was one of Nikon's first lenses for the Z mount system and it has been designed to cater to the hybrid shooter who wants a single lens that can do anything. Video, landscape, wedding, portrait, or even street photography. While the f1.8 aperture isn't exciting for a lot of people, the versatility makes it a great place to start when building out a new kit.
The lens is weather-sealed, has a silent stepping motor focusing system with very little focus breathing. It's very well corrected, incredibly sharp with a very manageable size and weight.
A firmware wishlist of features I would like to see implemented in the Nikon Z6 and Z7 cameras.
I usually do these at the end of my Fujifilm camera reviews and interestingly enough, almost every time, they almost all get fixed as long as they are reasonable. Not to say Nikon would do this, but these camera companies do monitor community feedback.
I think Nikon could potentially implement some of these in the Z6 and Z7 to make them significantly better cameras. These requests are not unreasonable considering other cameras have these capabilities.
Nikon just released firmware v3.0 which adds animal Eye and Face AF to the Z6 and Z7 cameras. They've also improved the AF tracking to perform more like the 3d tracking that everyone loved with the D850.
A detailed comparison between XQD memory card performance. Each card has been tested in each camera to find the fastest XQD memory card for the Nikon Z6 and Z7.
Use this guide to find the best XQD memory cards for your Nikon Z6 / Z7.
I've just wrapped up some of my memory card benchmarks in the Sony A7rIV and noticed something very interesting and exciting.
Sony has dramatically improved the speed of UHS-II memory cards in their mirrorless cameras.
A few cards in the Sony A7rIV are now clearing the buffer at a rate of about 200MB/s which is very similar to the XQD speeds in the Nikon Z7.
An accessory guide for all the best accessories for the Nikon Z6 or Z7. I've tested batteries, memory cards, screen protectors, cases and straps to find which products are the best and which should be considered.
These are also the accessories I use on my Nikon Z6.
Nikon has announced their new Z Series full frame mirrorless cameras. The Z6 and the Z7.
These two cameras will be very important to the mirrorless full frame industry after Sony has for five years completely owned the full frame mirrorless camera market.
