Estimated price for the UK seems to be about £2000Nikon Zf a FF retro style camera is rumored to have been released.
Since the auto-focus systems are so ubiquitous and smooth, you almost don't need the lens focus ring, so you can re-program the focus ring on the lens to change the ISO or for exposure compensation... It's so smooth and fast, and the EVF responds so well... I find I'm not using auto-ISO, just using my finger to quickly spin the focus-ringEver since I handled a Z Fc in the store, I wanted a full frame version. But I don't see preview hardware reviews as being reliable enough to make a buying decision. I want to see the more in-depth testing reviews that will be coming soon enough.
A major point of concern with the Z Fc after the light weight has almost universally been the issue of Auto-ISO activation. Most camera bodies allow you to hold a dedicated ISO button and rotate the front command dial to toggle Auto-ISO on/off. Quick and painless. The Z Fc requires going into the menu system to activate it. Looking at the photos of the controls, I don't see that this camera will be different in that way. All they needed to do is add an "auto" position on the ISO dial. Missed opportunity by the design team.
That is what I thought as well. I think in practical use it would become annoying.Could the storage change have been for space considerations? One real downside is for users who have already invested in one storage system combination and now would need to also purchase the smaller card for this camera.
Yup, saw this yesterday. I was so happy. This might be my new camera.Manuals are now live on the website. (10-12-2023)
BBF on the AE-L/AF-L works in the customary Nikon way.
The ISO dial has a "C" position. Don't know what C stands for, but in that position the menu system sets the ISO value and rotating the dial then overrides that. So the way to Auto-ISO quickly is to default the camera in the menu setting to ISO-Auto, so setting the dial to "C" puts it in Auto. Pretty much how I hoped it would work.
I don't need a furnace this winter, do I?
