According to latest rumors, Nikon is rumored to release a new firmware version 2.1 for Nikon Z9 in the next 7-14 days. The new firmware includes AF fixes and improvements, but will also include some important updates.
It is rumored that Nikon’s new APS-C mirrorless camera will be announced at the end of June or early July, so we think there will be multiple announcements on the same day (the new Z 400mm F4.5 is also expected to be announced).
The new firmware for Nikon Z9 seems to be a surprisingly big update, including improvements in AF. Also, it seems that the previously rumored APS-C mirrorless camera and interchangeable lens may be announced at the same time, and if Nikon Rumors expected, the next Nikon announcement will be a large one.
The Nikon Z9 competitors in this price range are mainly the “Canon EOS R3” and “Sony a1“.
Nikon Z9 body: $5,496.95 at Amazon, B&H, Adorama.
According to latest Sony rumors, Sony will announce a high-power zoom camera with a fixed lens in late 2022. This rumor refers to the highly anticipated Sony RX 10V.
“The main differentiator (from the current model) is that AI / Computation Photo technology will be introduced for the first time as a Sony camera. Also, the design and ergonomics have been improved, the flash has disappeared, and the α6600. The same battery will be used. The lens will be the same as the old model. This camera will be blackout-free and will have a continuous shooting function of up to 24 frames / sec.”
Since the information is unreliable, it seems better to ask about half the story at the moment, but if Sony RX10 V really appears, it will be the first model change in 5 years.
Currently, the market for integrated lens cameras is significantly smaller than before, but Panasonic, Nikon, and Canon still have a lineup of large integrated lens cameras equipped with high-power zoom, so Sony is in this category. It may not be so strange to introduce a new model with.
If the specs are as rumored, the new model is likely to be a normal evolution model that uses AI technology.
