New size estimation

Details of the teaser

As always we take a deeper look on what we get with the newest Nikon teaser.

this time we have the first quite clean image of the front in the video. Of course the still used some shadow to hide the details. But let’s have a look:

Size estimation

What would a new teaser without a new size estimation be? Surely not a post on this website ūüėČ

All estimations are based on the hot shoe:

  • Mount diameter:¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†65mm
  • Total height:¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†117mm
  • Total width:¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† 157mm
  • Gap between lens mount and grip:¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† 16mm

So some numbers do confirm estimations we made earlier. (here¬†and here and here) Other numbers, such as the height have not been possible before to estimate that clear as from the new image. But: In the image we did not pay attention to the perspective. While this doesn’t change that much on the height, it does on the width. (because of the grip which comes closer to the camera which took the picture). Guess the camera is aeound 15cm to 11cm (width and height)

Compared to the Sony A7 III

Currently the Sony A7 III is probably the best mirrorless fullframe camera currently available. Therefore we like to compare the new Nikon to it. The Nikon is around 2 centimeters wider and 2.1 centimeters higher than the Sony A7 III.

So yes, it will be bigger. But do not forget, that the main issue many have with the new Sony A7 III is, that the model is just to small for their hands. Of course it can be nice if you have a smaller camera.

But this mainly applies to cameras in the MFT area (like the awesome Olympus OM-D E-M5 II) as you also have smaller lenses on those cameras. When you have to handle full frame lenses (which often reach areas beyond 800 grams) you do want to have a bigger camera which supports you by its ergonomic handling.

Compared to the Nikon D750

The Nikon D750 is currently the best Nikon fullframe camera for enthusiasts, even though it was released nearly 4 years ago.

The D750 is 9mm less wide and 4mm less height. This now looks strange. The D750 is a small fullframe  yes. But the mirrorless beeing biggee is strange on this point. Stay tuned, maybe we find out more on this.
