Nikon D860 and Nikon Z8 Rumored to Feature 60MP Full Frame Sensor

Nikon D860 and Nikon Z8 cameras are rumored to feature 60MP full frame image sensor. It will be the Sony IMX455AQR sensor that will have 60MP, 8k video and native 64 ISO. Possible candidates for this sensor is the full frame Nikon D860 DSLR and the Nikon Z8 mirrorless cameras. 

There is a better version of this sensor IMX551 and Sony will probably use it for their own products. It’s being said that the Sony 60MP sensor PDAF is supposed to be better than the Multi-CAM 20000 currently used in some Nikon cameras. The sensor is in its early stages so we expect the Nikon D860 announcement to happen in early 2020.

The good thing is that we might see the Nikon Z8 before the Nikon D860 DSLR. So a possibility is that the Nikon high-resolution full frame mirrorless camera could arrive in Q3 or Q4 of 2019.

  • IMX455 (Low-Spec of IMX551 Prototype):
