New cameras for 2021: New models and trends

Coolpix P950

Really bulky and heavier, but a real zoom giant: The Nikon Coolpix P950 is worthwhile for photographers who want to get really far away subjects. The image quality is decent in daylight, but the Nikon doesn't like dim light - the image quality suffers significantly. Photos of the moon are not a problem with the P950: The satellite gets enough light from the sun even at night and the 83x zoom brings it in to fill the format.

  • Giant zoom (83x)
  • Easy handling
  • Visible loss of sharpness in dim light

Photo fairs 2021? Stay virtual for the time being

Two important photo fairs should actually take place in the first half of 2021: But because of the corona pandemic, the CP + in Yokohama took place virtually at the end of February and the Photokina in Cologne on its new date in May was canceled for the second time in a row - this time probably for good. But there should still be interesting new cameras, especially for professional photographers: Not only are the Olympic Games in Tokyo just around the corner (traditionally the new professional top models come a few months before that), but also a change of direction from the SLR to the system camera . Sony has already presented here with the Sony Alpha 1, with extremely high speed (up to 30 frames per second) and extremely high resolution: photography with 50 megapixels, films with 8K (7680x4320 pixels). Nikon has already shown its new flagship, but little is known about the Nikon Z9 - except that it is supposed to surpass Nikon's previous top model, the Nikon D6, and will also film in 8K. Canon has not yet let its cat out of the bag, but here too, with the Canon EOS R1, there is a generation change from the SLR to the system camera, maybe not until 2022.
