Nikon Z6 features 4K N-LOG, 10bit HDMI output and 120fps 1080p

Just a few hours ahead of the launch, we now know the first video specs for one of the new mirrorless cameras from Nikon.

The Z6 and Z7 will both feature 4K video. N-LOG has been confirmed for the Z6 and of course should be in the higher-end Z7 as well.

A very positive development is that the camera is confirmed to have a 10bit 4:2:2 HDMI output, a significant step up from the Nikon D850.

Canon EOS M50 – an accidental 4K Digital Bolex

It’s 2018 and a good video feature arrives on a Canon! I immediately assume it’s an accident, so taunt is the leash Canon has on video specs. Indeed, what makes the M50 appealing to me is the happy accident of what crop factor you get when you cut an 8 megapixel window out of a 24 megapixel sensor. All the best things are happy accidents when it comes to Canon, who gave us DSLR video by accident, then later RAW video on a 5D Mark III with Magic Lantern by accident, then with the M50’s ridiculous crop – a Super 16mm camera!
