Far more nuts news for Nikon photographers this 7 days! In accordance to Nikon Rumors, they’ve uncovered the initial indications that the subsequent large Megapixel digital camera from Nikon will be 60MP with sixteen-Bit NEF documents! It’s possible it’s the speculated Nikon Z8 “pro” mirrorless overall body? My guess is it’ll be a though prior to we have any extra information and facts relating to it being a DSLR or Mirrorless, but here’s a search at a leaked website page of the consumer handbook posted by Nikon Rumors, which by the way, is suspiciously equivalent to the Nikon Z6 & Z7 Guide formats
The big thing to consider observe of listed here (if this is essentially legit), is the greater resolution format available at 9552×6364. and the 16-bit NEF selection for Raw files. It’s also been documented that Nikon was by now established to release a new compression Raw codec that would enable reduce the measurement of these potentially Large Raw data files by up to 80%, (as opposed to the current compression of 35%-55%), which would make all of this pretty believable and fascinating information if it will come to fruition!
Based on this and some prior experiences, it is very likely that Nikon _did_ purchase the new Sony Sensor (modified for their specifications), to launch a program that could truly compete with the new Sony A7RIV considering the fact that it’d be using proficiently the very same sensor, but with Uncooked information that could be much more manageable to work with thanks to their new compression codec.
What do you think? With all the news on the roadmap from Nikon for bulletins above the future few months, do you think this is a thing we can expect from their next Big/Pro digital camera physique? Do you believe that with the new compression codec it may possibly be achievable that they’ll have a leg up on the Sony levels of competition? Permit us know in the reviews below.
