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

Comment on the forum

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. Hopefully the traditional Flat profile will be maintained as well, for those looking for something easier to grade. 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

Comment on the forum

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!

5D Mark III Magic Lantern

Go here to download the file (you must be a donator to access it, large or small it doesn’t matter)

The first Alpha version of the 5D Mark III Magic Lantern port has been outed. 5D Mark III owners can give it a go. I am going to try it myself (thanks Alex). The initial feature-set is quite small, and there’s no bitrate tweaks yet. These will be added later by the test and development team step by step once they are seen to be stable.
