With an unusual departure from their normal naming scheme, Nikon has announced the successors to their Z6 and Z7 full-frame mirrorless cameras via a countdown page on their website. Instead of the Z6s and Z7s designations that were expected, Nikon has adopted a decidedly Canon-like scheme for these new models, to be dubbed the Z6 II and Z7 II, respectively.
Since the launch of the countdown page, they have pulled the names, but the expected reveal date is October 14, 2020 at 12:00 AM EDT.
No details were given on the Z6 II and Z7 II specs, but some of the rumored new features include:
- Dual card slots
- No blackout EVF
- Improved autofocus
- A “real” battery grip
- 4K video at 60p
- No rolling shutter
We doubt 100% of this list is accurate, but are eagerly anticipating seeing what Nikon unveils on the 14th.
