Comments: 28, on the topic: Announcement: Nikon Z7 II

  • Alexander Rifeev

    too high price of the camera, SLR cameras are much cheaper, and their performance characteristics are not worse

    • notapic

      Which DSLR cameras are capable of shooting 4K / 60, 12-bit RAV video and have a built-in stabilizer? I didn’t say anything about the AF module right away.

      • Arkady Shapoval

        But I'm wondering what would be preferable in the general case: 4k 60p 12 bit RAW, or 4k 120p 4 2 0?

        • notapic

          It is unlikely that an average person will notice the difference when viewing the final version after processing. But slowing down to 60 fps is much more difficult than 120. I would choose 4k / 120 and 4: 2: 0, since the viewer is unlikely to look at each frame and study the color gamut, halftone transitions and so on. Still, slow-mo looks very impressive sometimes.

        • Hairy mirror

          It is necessary that both parameters be selectable)

        • SERGOS

          I presented your site / or blog / as a site related to photography and you have confirmed this before .... what is happening? -in the present discussion of the attempts of clever people who did not hold the device in their hands // otherwise there would be something to say / -that is obvious ... more - complaints about prices / valuable information / .. and fragmentary selections from the characteristics of the video. Dear Arkady, I have already urged you to strictly clean up comments that are not related to the essence of your project; as well as mine today, not technical. -It should be something like RADOZHIV2-there will be an abyss of polemics and let it go.

          • 1Ds_mk3

            It's just that money has become scarce (since 2015), and there are a lot of clever sofa specialists with spoiled sofas.
            If you want a normal conversation and exchange of experience, this is for you on the photo_ru forum.
            There you can share photos and experience.

            • Michael

              There are more sofas and experts)

              • 1Ds_mk3

                But there are photos and exchange of experience.
                Like which lens did not fit normally on the R5 / R6 through the adapter, and which one got up and worked.
                Well, photos and infa for all cameras. At least for CCD at least for other exotic ones.
                During the evening you read something that was born again.
                And there are a lot of pictures - people really share them, and not throw off their fantasies.

              • Victor

                Normal photos and exchange of experience there are drowned in a sea of ​​useless information. If you purposefully need any info, it's better to go here, in a structured blog.
                If you just chat, you can take a photo.

              • 1Ds_mk3

                "If you purposefully need any info - better here, in a structured blog."
                You can immediately see a person who has not visited the photo_ru for a long time.
                Or never did.
                I don't see any pictures on Radozhiv (as well as the owners of Units and 5dmark4, 5ds / 5dsr).
                Long to explain, here is link 1:
                Here is a club of theoreticians. I went there and everything is on modern boots and nikons.

              • 1Ds_mk3

                Here is link 2:
                In short, the difference - here is a club of lovers (and sympathizers) of old budget crops, and there are the owners of new products.
                Here are sofa experts and beginners (help me choose d90 or 550d and which helius, I have no money), and there are R5 and R6 and Zu Nikons and a sea of ​​photos that are not here.

              • Arkady Shapoval

                there are also good materials and reviews on mywed

              • 1Ds_mk3

                Victor, run along the branches there and you will see everything.
                The first 5 pages - yes, boltology. BUT! From owners of previous models.
                Not D80.
                And then there are live photos from the owners of new products and this is valuable.
                You can find both Kodak and digital assets, and there are also pictures there.
                Just chat with the owners of the d7100 or 600d, this is where the contingent is. Nothing personal.

            • Victor

              Generally speaking, I have been on the photo for about ten years, so I am slightly aware of what kind of contingent there is, and how it is in general and what.

              Once again I repeat - if you need * structured infa * - welsh here, in the body of articles, there are photos here too, and what is most valuable - mainly from ONE_ TWO people, which allows you to compare different cameras and lenses with an open mind.

              If you chat, look at photos of someone in what is much (the level of users there floats a lot from beginners to professional photographers), listen to sandpipers praising their swamps, or rummage through 3000 pages of a typical photo theme with a non-working forum search in search of the necessary information - this is there ...

              ps did the old nickname do anything?)

          • Arkady Shapoval

            I have a blog, there will be no rigid registration yet. And lately, comments are being filtered much harder.

      • Michael

        This is if someone needs this video - who does not need it and they will not see the difference. The new lenses are more interesting here, although, as for me, the fuj is more interesting for the transition to the UPC

    • Victor

      “Too high a price” not because it is high, but because the people are essentially poor.

      Let me remind you that at the time of release, the first penny cost $ 3300, for example, but its positioning was essentially the same.

      • Arkady Shapoval

        5d Mark 2 (under the video) exactly 2.700 like this Z7 II

      • Pokemon

        "The price is too high, not because it is high, but because the people are, in fact, poor."
        In the Russian Federation, the ruble has already collapsed a dozen times over the past 20 years. All the same people are still in power.
        They have money and children in the “decaying West (s).
        But at the prices of the previous generation of DSLRs:
        D800 / D800E
        "The camera will be available in the US in March, for $ 2,999.95, and for those who don't want an antialiasing filter there's the D800E, for $ 3,299.95."
        5DMark lll
        “The Mark III went on sale later in March with a retail price of $ 3,499 in the US, £ 2999 in the UK, and € 3569 in the Eurozone.”

  • Vio

    DualPixel Canon is many times better. At least draw “mark3” - Nikon has everything by :(

    • Hairy mirror

      Why carry nonsense, what did you measure these “times” with, parrots? It is clear that no one has surpassed the Dual Pixel yet, but the competitors in autofocus in the video have pulled up a lot.

  • BB

    DHMI Type C - typo?

    • Arkady Shapoval


  • Neo

    Sony was years ahead of Nikon, especially in the video.

    • Arkady Shapoval

      exactly 5 years

    • Hairy mirror

      Yes! Especially low bitrate and overheating of the camera)

  • Igor

    Judging by the squalor of the Z6 and Z7 cameras, you look at the “new” devices with caution. We still do not know about the battery life (and two processors will eat up power with a bang), the speed and quality of focusing, whether the cover of the memory cards opens spontaneously, etc.
