In addition, the new machine has added a microphone interface in terms of interface, which provides more convenience for vlog video creation. . It can be said that this is an all-round model that can simultaneously meet the needs of high-speed capture, video recording and vlog recording.

   But compared to the Canon G7 X III, the price of the seventh-generation black card is not so “friendly”. Sony’s official price is 8,699 yuan, which is by far the most expensive model in the Sony RX100 family.

   pixels have evolved to 61 million!

   In addition to the seventh-generation black card, Sony will have a new heavyweight product in July, that is, the A7R M4. The A7R series products feature high-pixel advantages in Sony’s full-frame micro-single product line, and this new generation of models is no exception.

  A7R M4 definition The balance between high image quality and high speed, providing high resolution and high dynamic range comparable to medium format, with the powerful performance of high-speed focusing and high-speed continuous shooting, coupled with excellent connectivity and operability, is a wide range of professional photography Ideal for photographers, professional video workers and photography enthusiasts.

   This ultra-high-pixel full-frame mirrorless camera will be launched in late August this year. The price of a single body is 26,999 yuan. In addition to the high price of the new machine itself, in order to maximize the strength of this high-pixel micro-single, high-quality lenses, high-speed memory cards, and even high-configuration computers are all essential. Larger investment.

  Nikon’s new machine is about to come out

   The Sony A7R M4 we introduced above is a full-frame mirrorless single with 61 million high pixels. Recently, relevant foreign media will report on Nikon’s new machine. The specification of 61 million pixels will also be adopted, and the products involved are the Nikon full-frame mirrorless Z8 and the new SLR D860. The news pointed out that Nikon Z8 will be released in Q3 or Q4 this year, and Nikon D860 will be released in early 2020.

   from the current news Look, both Nikon Z8 and D860 may use Sony’s IMX455 full-frame image sensor, which is still 61 million pixels. The phase detection autofocus speed of this sensor will be faster than Nikon D5 and Nikon D500.

   News It also pointed out that Sony’s IMX455 image sensor is a “castrated version” of IMX555, while Sony itself uses the IMX555 image sensor. In this way, Sony’s own competitiveness will be further improved. After all, Nikon does not have its own sensors, so it is impossible to be restricted by Sony. However, this IMX455 sensor still has a very good performance.

   Although It uses Sony’s sensor, but one of Nikon’s magic is the first-class adjustment ability. For example, the Nikon D850 also uses a Sony sensor, but after tuning it out, it has become the most powerful product in the current high-end SLR, which is rarely matched. I believe that even if Sony sells the castrated version of the 61-megapixel sensor to Nikon, Nikon can take it to the extreme, and there will be outstanding performance by then. I look forward to the performance of the Z8 and D860.

  Canon’s new flagship was born for the Olympic Games

   The latest spy from Canon Rumors website, Canon will simultaneously launch two flagship high-speed full-frame cameras before the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, including one One SLR and one micro-single.
