Photography

I have been snapping away for years and I wouldn’t call it really photography. Well as I come up for retirement, I want to get more involved. Although I no longer think photographs are the way forward its video.

As a consequence I’ve bought some new hardware and traded the older stuff in.

One of the most interesting pieces of hardware I have bought recently is the DJI Ronin S which teams up with the Panasonic DH5. I’ve used the DH5 to video council meetings, but need to find a more interesting subject.

I’ve also bought a DJI drone and a new Nikon D850, maybe I should have held off for the Z7. The launch pictures I took of the Z7 at the Za’abeel Studio in Dubai, UAE, Nikon Middle East has officially unveiled their first ever mirrorless full-frame camera as a part of their Z series, called the Nikon Z7 that’s aimed for those who wants the finest of Nikon engineering for the best photography experience. The Nikon Z7 is not meant to be a replacement of the popular Nikon D850, rather, a different experience that gives professionals the ability to carry lighter cameras with great specifications.

Nikon’s first FX-format mirrorless camera with 45.7 effective megapixels gets the most out of the NIKKOR Z lenses’ unprecedented optical performance:

Evolution never ends for high-pixel-count cameras. Featuring 45.7 effective megapixels in a compact body, the Z 7 — Nikon’s brand new, FX-format mirrorless camera — fully exploits the unprecedented optical performance offered by the new NIKKOR Z lenses and delivers overwhelming edge-to-edge detail in both stills and videos. In addition, its wide, 493-point hybrid AF system with superb focusing accuracy and the new EXPEED 6 image-processing engine contribute to achieving sharper images than ever.

The 3690k-dot Quad-VGA electronic viewfinder provides a clear view and an amazingly comfortable shooting experience, thanks to Nikon’s advanced optics and imaging expertise. And with 10-bit N-Log as well as 4K UHD and 8K time-lapse* movie, it meets the needs of demanding video creators too. Condensing all of this power into a compact yet robust body, the Z 7 promises to take you to a new world of truly amazing images.

* 8K time-lapse movie production requires third-party software.
