The case for two new Nikon cameras continues to build up: new N2216 model registered in Asia


I still cannot get over the idea that the two missing cameras on the European Nikon sites were the Z6 and Z7 – both models have been discontinued for a while.

N2214 and N2216

I believe Nikon still can announce two new cameras: in addition to the N2214, a second Nikon camera (N2216) was registered in Asia (I could not find the actual registration online).

Z7III or  Z50II?

The second camera could be the Z7III or maybe even the Z50II (the Z50 was announced in 2019 – it needs an update ASAP).

Z5II?

I do not see any logic for Nikon to announce the Z6III together with a new Z5II at the same time (the Z5 was announced in 2020). The Z5 was a not good seller for Nikon and I don’t see them rushing to upgrade it.

We are also waiting on two new Nikkor Z lenses:

A new set of Nikon Z6 III camera specifications and details

Nikon Z6III mockup

Here is a new set of Nikon Z6 III camera specifications and details coming from a good source:

  • 6k60 NRAW, 4k120 (crop), 4k60 full ProRes RAW
  • New higher resolution EVF: 5.76m dot
  • Improved LCD
  • 20fps still RAW (14bit)
  • 120fps stills jpeg
  • 1/16000 shutter speed
  • 299 points AF
  • 8-stop VR (same system as the Nikon Zf)
  • CFexpress+SD memory cards
  • PSAM Dial
  • Camera body size and overall dimension are similar to the Nikon Z6II: 3-5mm longer width becuase of the LCD hinge and a few mm thicker
  • The overall height (bottom to the EVF) remains the same but the actual camera is 2-3mm taller
  • The grip button layouts and design look similar to the Nikon Z8 apart from the command dial which is the same as the Z6II
  • All other button layouts are the same as the Z6II
  • The Z6III logo is on the top, just like on the Z8/Z9
  • Z logo in the front is also like the Z8 but below the current Z6II focus sensor
  • The Z6III body overall is about 30-40g heavier than the Z6II
  • The Z6III body inherits the design from the Z8 – this is why a few months ago I reported it as a mini-Z8 (the Nikon Z6III is a mini Z8, the Nikon Z8 was a mini Z9)
  • Battery EN-EL15
  • A few other features from Z8 and Zf are also coming to Z6III but I do not have the details yet
