Comments: 17, 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)

      • 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.
