Interview: Nikon now Focus on Middle-range & High-end Cameras
LensVid has interviewed with Nikon Europe’s vice president. They talked about recently announced Nikon D6 and their upcoming plan. Below are some highlights of this interview:
We have seen that there is still a need for better quality images and videos from users that smartphones won’t be able to deliver. These demands typically come from the mid-level and high-end users and that is where our focus lays in the future.
The D6 has the best AF system among Nikon cameras. The D6 has a high reputation especially among sports, wildlife, and press photographers because of its improved speed and AF precision powered by the new AF system.
Nikon D6 doesn’t need in-body stabilisation because the main target users of the D6 are sports, wildlife and press photographers, who use the Optical viewfinder in most cases.
Nikon D780 has took the live view AF technology from the Z6/Z7, and D6 didn’t because the main target audience of the D6 is sports, wildlife and press photographers, and in most cases, they use the optical viewfinder.
The SnapBridge app has been updated regularly and now has the highest rating among camera manufactures’ apps.
