The Latest News On Canon and Nikon Full Frame Mirrorless Cameras




Nikon is expected to announce their full frame mirrorless cameras the last week of August. There may be two models. One is for the professional market and the other for the prosumer segment.

  • Both models with new sensors : 20+MP and 40+MP
  • Both models equipped with BSI sensors 
  • 5-axis in-body stabilization
  • 9 fps burst rate
  • Dual memory card slots : XQD and CF Express. Pro model with CF Express card slot
  • EVF resolution : 3.6MP 
  • State of the art video AF features.
  • AF tracking ability of the pro version comparable to A7 and A9 models.
  • Hundreds of AF points (Marketing gimmick in my book) 
  • Tiltable LCD screen similar to D850
  • Advanced 4K video

Canon is also expected to announce their full frame mirrorless camera some time in September. I expect two models as well, each with its own new sensor. The prosumer version (20+MP sensor) may come with a modified adapter to accept EF and EF-M lenses but the pro model (30+MP sensor) may have the native EF mount.

If true, then I will be acquiring the pro version as soon as it is available. My readers know me as The Wildlife Ho-tographer. I have been using Canon equipment for over three decades. Follow my travels on Facebook and Twitter, see my equipment bag and works on MichaelDanielHo.com

I have been holding back on buying a mirrorless camera because the current models do not fill my needs. While I welcome the reduction in weight in mirrorless bodies, the other features like AF, ergonomics and functionalities do not impress me enough to add it to my equipment bag.

If Canon does decide to announce their full frame mirrorless cameras in time for the Photokina Show in September, we should be getting additional leaks soon. Check back often to get the latest development and details.
