Summer will soon be over and the big autumn Canon-Sony fighting is about to start. First we will get the full new EOS-R3 unveiling around mid September. And in October Sony will launch their A7IV beast which is rumored to have the following specs:

  • Newly developed 33MP sensor
  • 5.5 stops of IBIS (+ AS)

Also Nikon will unveil the Z9 but I don’t know if they will make a meaningful impact with this camera…

Two products to be announced soon: Panasonic 24mm f/1.8 lens and Fuji GFX50s II

Nokishita confirmed the announcement of two new products. First he spotted the Fuji GFX50sII at the indian sertificasi agency.

And next Panasonic will very soon announce the new LUMIX S 24mm F1.8″ lens:

  • 12 elements in 11 groups (3 aspherical lenses, 1 UED lens, 3 ED lenses)
  • minimum shooting distance 0.24m
  • maximum shooting magnification 0.15x
  • filter diameter. 67mm
  • Size is 73.6×82.0mm
  • Weight is 310g. 

Nikon Z9 will feature a new 45MP BSI Sensor and have 160 FPS Burst Capture

There are new details emerging about the upcoming Nikon Z9:

  • 8256 x 5504px resolution that confirms a 45MP stacked sensor (it is interesting to note that Canon decided to go with a 24MP sensor for their R3 camera).
  • The Z9 will be capable of up to 120 fps in a lower res file size (6Mb I think). Some reports even indicated 160 fps!
  • Built-in GPS – probably GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System).
  • The Z9 will use the same battery as D6. There will be also a new 18-type battery (EN-EL18x) that can be charged by the camera’s USB-C.
  • The sensor has multi leaf blade protective shutter that auto covers sensor when switched off/changing lens to stop dust and dirt on naked sensor.
  • The Z9 will have car autofocus in addition to animal and people AF as well as low light -7 EV.
  • Improved 3D tracking.
  • Improved articulated screen that even works in portrait mode – it is a completely new design.
  • New style locking flap for the two CFExpress memory cards.
  • Third joystick/selector added to use whilst camera close face and shooting.
  • Many new menu features to tweak and match your shooting style.
  • The shutter release sound level can be adjusted from silent to loud… so you can still get that D6 machine gun sound…
  • The official announcement is expected in the next 2 months, but do not expect many cameras to ship before the end of the year. Because of part shortage, the waiting time for the Z9 is expected to be very long.
