Flying Hasselbad's & Mirrorless Nikons..

Two pretty exciting tech / gear announcements today and I'll defer to better sources for the details...   

Nikon, has finally (finally!) released a reasonable competitor to the Sony full-frame mirrorless line of camera bodies with the announcement of the Nikon Z6 and Z7 bodies and their new Z-Mount mirrorless system. 

A good rundown on it here:

I personally find that announcement to be exciting and interesting.  I've gone back to shooting w/ a NIkon full-frame DSLR as of late ever since my Sony AR7rII was damaged by overspray in a commercial / industrial shoot.   

Getting back on some f2.8 Nikon glass has been a refreshing change for me...

It's a little eye-rolling that we have yet-another-mount to pine after for our overpriced lens addiction but at least the Z-Series will have a F-Mount adaptor so you can bring your Nikon Glass to the party.

In drone news, DJI announced the release of the Mavik 2.  It seems like the Phantom is increasingly taking the back seat to the Mavik.  With this release, the Mavik 2 pro gets a 20 Megapixel Hasselblad camera w/ a 1" sensor.  There is also a "Zoom" variant that... well, I guess it zooms and stuff. :)

Better coverage on that can be found here:

I'm also a big fan of the Mavik, tend to keep one within arms reach for most outings...
