In the first half of 2020, Nikon announced two new DSLR cameras: Nikon D6 and Nikon D780, now it is time for Nikon Z-mount mirrorless cameras. Currently, Nikon has a total of 8 unannounced camera code, according to latest rumors, Nikon will soon announce two new Z-mount mirrorless cameras in next few weeks:
The long awaited Nikon D6 flagship full frame DSLR camera will be shipping in early May, 2020, according to Nikon Canada photographer Brad Hill. Currently still no info about release date in US, you can pre-order Nikon D6 at B&H Photo/Adorama/Amazon.
From Brad Hill:
Earlier today I received “the call” – that is, the phone call informing me that the Nikon D6 (including mine) will be shipping out in Canada in the first week of May. And that’s May 2020, not 2021! 😉
As previously reported on this blog, the D6 will be one of the four Nikon products that I will be doing a detailed field test and review of in 2020. I’m really looking forward to getting my hands on a D6 – in some ways we know very little about the actual implementation of some of the new features (e.g., compared to the D5 just how much better is the autofocus system…and how much better IS the ISO performance…and…how well are the “advanced customization” features executed and how much will they help me in the field?), but I do think – and hope – some of the many “tweaks” to the camera work well for me…
Nikon today has officially announced the new COOLPIX P950 (Pre-order available soon at B&H/Adorama/Amazon) 83x 4K super zoom compact camera. It retaining the outrageous 24-2000mm equiv. zoom range of its P900 predecessor, while adding modern refinements like 4K video and a higher-resolution EVF. In addition to its large zoom range, the P950 offers UHD 4K video capture, 7 fps burst shooting and Wi-Fi + Bluetooth. Raw image capture is a welcome addition for more advanced photographers, and anyone will be able to appreciate its higher-res 2.4M-dot viewfinder. The P950 boasts 5.5 stops of stabilization and an accessory shoe to support Nikon’s DF-M1 dot sight – a useful aid for bird and airplane photography. The Nikon Coolpix P950 will arrive in February with an MSRP of $800.
