I can’t tell cameras apart anymore. Are camera naming systems broken?

May 27, 2023 0 Comments

Are cameras different enough any more? Has the pace of technology and the necessity to add new rival-beating features eclipsed the traditional numbering system for cameras, and made them too hard to separate from one another?

The Nikon Z8 is out, and by Nikon’s own admission it is a “baby Z9”. That is great for anyone who was clamoring for that specific camera and following the specs closely enough to determine it’s the one for them. But for those of us that only follow Nikon’s output with casual interest, except for the size, at a customary glance, it’s just another camera with a confusing specification crossover with other very similar-looking Nikon cameras.
