Nikon D780 vs Nikon Z6: Which One Should You Get?

Upon first glance, the Nikon D780 and Z6 appear to be very different cameras. The D780 is a traditional-looking DSLR with Nikon's standard control layout, while the Z6 is a smaller and more streamlined mirrorless camera with a number of new design cues. But beneath the surface, the Nikon D780…

Fuji X-T20 Review

The success of the Fujifilm X-T series cameras has created the demand for a lower cost camera that incorporates most of the features in a more compact body. The Fuji X-T1 prompted the birth of the X-T10, and the X-T2 obviously resulted in the second-generation X-T20. Built to the same…

Nikon introduced the wide-angle NIKKOR Z 24mm f/1.8 S in September of 2019 for its mirrorless Z mount. At the time of the announcement, it was the widest professional-grade prime lens for the system, although Nikon followed up with the Z 20mm f/1.8 S announcement just five months later. The…

The Nikon Z6 was announced in August of 2018 alongside the higher resolution Z7.
