There’s been quite a lot of discussion regarding Nikon’s new Z mount ever since the patent was first spotted. Nikon, too, has made quite the fuss over it in the recent Nikon Z6 & Z7 mirrorless camera announcements. Now, it seems that we have Atsushi Suzuki, an actual Nikon optical engineer, to explain it to us.
So, why did Nikon introduce a new mount for their mirrorless cameras? Well, in the video, Atsushi goes into quite some technical detail. But to really know what’s going on, it helps to understand this stuff.
