SINGAPORE - Nikon Inc., a subsidiary of Nikon Corporation (Nikon) will be representing Nikon at CES 2019, one of the world's largest international consumer electronics trade shows, held annually in Las Vegas, Nevada. This year sees the event being held from January 8 – 11, 2019.
The mirrorless Z mount system will be exhibited at the Nikon booth. One of the key products that will be on display is the NIKKOR Z 14-30mm f/4 S, a new NIKKOR Z S-Line high-performance, ultra-wide-angle zoom lens compatible with the Nikon Z mount system.
Displays of new features, such as Eye AF and support for RAW video output to be incorporated in new firmware that is currently being developed for the full frame mirrorless cameras Nikon Z 7 and Z 6, will take place as part of the Z series exhibition. The Z series will continue to flexibly respond to changing user needs and offer next-generation imaging experiences that stimulate users' creative intentions.
• NIKKOR Z 14-30mm f/4 S, an ultra-wide-angle zoom lens compatible with the Nikon Z mount system and is part of the S-Line
The NIKKOR Z 14-30mm f/4 S is a full-frame (Nikon FX-format), ultra-wide-angle zoom lens that covers the 14 mm to 30 mm range of focal lengths with a constant maximum aperture of f/4 throughout the range. The NIKKOR Z 14-30mm f/4 S is the world's first* full-frame lens to support direct filter attachment despite starting at a 14 mm focal length.
The combination of superior optical performance and compact size of this lens is made possible by the new Z mount system. The high-performance NIKKOR Z 14-30mm f/4 S, with its superior mobility and operability, enables users to enjoy a dynamic angle of view for still images and videos.
The following new features to be added to firmware that is currently being developed for the Z 7 and Z 6 will be displayed at CES 2019.
• Eye AF
The Eye AF allows for the convenient detection of the subject’s eyes, making focusing easier. It will allow users to capture photos in which focus has been clearly acquired on the subject's eye, for situations such as portrait and street photography.
• Support for RAW video output
Nikon is currently developing a feature that works with the ATOMOS Ninja V to output video in RAW format, using the ProRes RAW codec.
Coming soon to the Z 6 and Z 7 cameras is compatibility with CFexpress, which is compatible with XQD memory cards.
* Among FX-format interchangeable lenses for digital cameras with interchangeable lenses with a focal range beginning at 14 mm or lower, available as of January 8, 2019. Statement based on Nikon research.
