Nikon Z6 III announcement is expected around June 11 or around June 18

Nikon Z6 III announcement is expected around June 11 or around June 18

Here is the latest regarding the upcoming Nikon Z6 III announcement – two different dates are still floating around:

  • on or around June 11 (±1 day)
  • on or around June 18 (±1 day)

There could be several reasons for the discrepancy:

  • We may see a teaser for the new camera on June 11 and the official announcement on June 18 (the most likely scenario).
  • June 11 could be the internal presentation, and June 18 the official announcement.
  • June 11 could be the official announcement date, and the embargo for the influencers could be June 18.
  • June 11 could be the official announcement, and June 18 the actual shipping date.
  • June 11 could be the development announcement (less likely).
  • June 11 could be the announcement date, and pre-orders will open on June 18 (less likely).
  • I am sure there are a few other scenarios I did not mention here, but you get the picture.

Either way, everyone I am in contact with is still mentioning both dates (June 11 and June 18).

The situation in China

Nikon China posted an invitation for an upcoming “Super Creative Camp” on June 22nd in Shanghai. There will be thousands of people attending this camp, including two huge influencers:

Trasation: Registration for the “Nikon Super Creative Camp” Shanghai Station has begun! (June 22)

Several Chinese dealers were also invited to a “product testing” by Nikon on June 18th in Shanghai. Some of them even listed the details of the event on social media:

In addition to the Shanghai event, Beijing and Shenzhen will also have the same event in late June and early July. This could be a hint for the upcoming Z6 III becuase Nikon did the exact same thing last year with the Z8 launch and the 2023 “Super Creative Camp” on May 27th:

Update – the Nikon Plaza Tokyo will be closed on June 11th and 17th, assumably to prepare for the new Nikon Z6 III camera (coincidence?):
