Nikon full-frame mirrorless camera to boast new Z mount

Nikon designs a new sensor

Nikon is planning to introduce a new Z-mount to its long-anticipated full-frame mirrorless camera, according to new rumours emerging from CES.

Nikon Rumors reports that new patents are illustrated with drawings showing a new lens mount design with different locations for electronic contacts, which may be the Z-mount.

The website says that rumours from CES in Las Vegas suggest that the new Nikon full-frame mirrorless camera’s Z-mount will feature a 16mm flange focal distance and an external diameter of 49mm.

The Nikon F-mount offers a 46.5mm flange focal distance and a 44mm external diameter, for comparison.

Nikon itself has been driving rumours of its full-frame mirrorless camera, all but saying it’s next camera will be as such. The company even told us in 2016 at Photokina that a full-frame mirrorless camera was in its plans.

Nikon’s full-frame mirrorless plans are one of the hottest camera rumours of 2018, and we wouldn’t be surprised to see it announced within the next couple months. Watch this space.
