Nikon Z9 Announcement

Our thoughts on the new mirrorless flagship from Nikon

This week, Nikon announced the development of the Z9 mirrorless camera. Although specs were scarce, there are a few things we can infer from the product announcement. Adobe released a new update to Camera Raw, which offers a new feature called “super resolution.” This enables ACR (and soon, Lightroom) users to double the linear pixel dimensions of their images while preserving a raw format. Our experiments with Super Resolution suggest that it has a lot of potential in the future for working with highly-cropped images or photos captured with lower-resolution cameras.

Nikon 14-24 f/2.8 Shootout

Comparing the Nikon 14-24/2.8S with the legendary 14-24/2.8G

When Nikon introduced the AF-S 14-24mm f/2.8G ED zoom Nikkor in late 2007, it was quickly hailed as a “legendary” lens. In fact, some reviewers said that its performance at 24mm was better than many 24mm prime lenses. In fact, even Canon users hailed this lens and would frequently use it on their cameras via a mount adapter. I purchased this lens and found it to be stellar on my full-frame Nikon DSLR bodies.

Fast-forward to 2020, and Nikon has just released a new 14-24mm f/2.8 lens; this one is designed to work natively on Nikon’s mirrorless Z-mount bodies. Earlier, I reviewed this lens and found it to be simply outstanding. I also made comparison shots with both the 14-24mm f/2.8G and the 14-24mm f/2.8S lenses. You can check out my evaluation video to see how these two lenses compare in terms of sharpness, contrast, and flare resistance. Thanks again to B&H Photo for providing a test copy of the new 14-24mm f/2.8S. Check availability & Pricing

RAW file format options in Nikon Digital Cameras

Most of our listeners probably know about the advantages of RAW capture over JPEG, but many cameras also offer a variety of options for configuring RAW files. This week, we’ll discuss the differences between compressed and uncompressed RAW formats, bit depth, and also take a look at Nikon’s smaller RAW file options in cameras like the Nikon D850 and Z6/Z7 mirrorless cameras.
