Nikon has been teasing the upcoming announcement for their new mirrorless cameras which is set for an official reveal on the 23rd of August. In terms of branding, it is unclear as to what Nikon could be calling these new devices, but according to Nikon Rumors, some potential names have been revealed.
Nikon Rumors has heard that for Nikon’s upcoming mirrorless cameras, there will be two full-frame models in which one will be known as the Nikon Z6 and the other as the Nikon Z7. There will be obvious differences between both models, where the Z6 will apparently be focused on speed and low-light photography, whereas the Z7 will focus on having a higher-resolution sensor at 45MP versus the Z6 which is rumored to pack a 24MP sensor.
This distinction isn’t uncommon as it is also what separates Sony’s A-series cameras from each other, where for example the Sony A7 III series is offered in either a “regular” A7 III or the A7R III. It is also not surprising that the cameras are given the “Z” moniker given that the rumors are claiming that the new mirrorless cameras will be packing a new Z-mount.
In any case we should have more details soon so check back with us in the coming weeks for the official information.
