Nikon Z7 Field Test Part I: Nikon takes a good first step into the full-frame mirrorless fray

Imaging Resource posted their first part of the Nikon Z7 review.

Generally, the Z7 offers solid performance. It’s fast, it can shoot action and it feels responsive in use. The battery life is rated for a somewhat low 330 shots when using the EVF — 400 when using the rear display — but I think that it has been significantly undersold by the rather rigorous CIPA testing standards. Everyone’s mileage will vary, but in my workflow, the Z7’s battery has performed surprisingly well and offered considerably more shots than the rating and better duration than I expected.

Dpreview: Nikon Coolpix P1000 First impressions review

Dpreview shared their first impression of that crazy P1000 camera (here on Amazon):

I enjoyed shooting with the P1000, despite what you give up in order to have that lens. Would I actually buy one? Given how rarely I shot above 1000mm equiv. I’d personally select Sony’s similarly priced Cyber-shot RX10 III, which tops out at 600mm but has a much larger sensor and brighter lens to give stellar photo and video quality. That shouldn’t take away from the fact that the P1000 is a fun camera to shoot with, even if it’s just for the adventure of finding a subject to take full advantage of that ‘absurd’ lens.
