The bad news is that you have to pay attention to where you're controlling when VR is active or not. You're simply going to get to correct focus visually faster and more accurately with your lens on the Z6 via FTZ adapter than you will with any other camera mounting those lenses. In one of the biggest design dissonances in the DSLR to mirrorless transition, the type of VR is controlled by the lens, unless it isn't. « Nikon Z6 II and Z7 II videos, presentations, and hands-on reports. With contrasty subjects, I actually found that the Z6 was handling down to significantly below EV0 much as it was in "regular" light. Yes, the Z6 does do better in really low light than the Z7—the pixels are larger, so the phase detect system is getting more light—but I'm not sure I can precisely measure it. Only they're not all that fast. The camera lists for US$2000. Though the 2.0 and later firmware updates seems to have made the camera less prone to go to the background, I still find situations where it does. Absolutely.

I don't mind the new data coming along. Both models are available also in a combo with the WR-T10: The WR-R11a can be used with cameras equipped with a 10-pin terminal (except some older DSLR models like the D100, D1, D1H, D1X, D200, Third, I'm not sure that most of those writing about the Z6's autofocus performance have actually pushed it in every situation it might ever be used in, let alone try to understand how they might optimize the camera settings for that. The Z6 is a smaller, more lithe camera than the full frame DSLRs, and that has to amount to something in my book. They are the primary difference that means you'll have a tougher time getting correct sequences of focus on moving subjects compared to a Nikon DSLR (or a Sony mirrorless camera, for that matter). Because the pixels are bigger on the Z6, people have been expecting "better" autofocus on it over the Z7. Here you’ll find details of all the supported batteries and chargers for the Nikon Z6 and Z7. You won't find another lens of that capability at that price. Meanwhile, chipped MF lenses (e.g. Okay. One thing, though: none of these autofocus detection sites are cross-type, as you find in the DSLRs. (Eek. If you want to go radio wireless with flash, you'll need an SB-5000 and the WR-R10 transmitter, which plugs into the rectangular 10-pin slot at the bottom of the connector area and is pretty much out of your way. Last Update: December 6th, 2020. See also the article “Shooting Portraits with a Pre-Production Nikon Z7 II” at PetaPixel. This shows not only in the obvious controls and physical feature differences you can see on the outside of the camera, but also in a tear down of the Z6: I see some things the same, some different. The Z6 seems to be very close to the A7 series here, with a rolling shutter that's running at about 1/22 second (a little faster than the Z7's 1/15 second). (Nikon does do one nice thing and display the previous frame as overlay in the viewfinder as you compose the additional shot, though.) → Nikon Z 7 II: no canvas too big. Native Z lenses seem faster than the fastest F-mount lenses, but that simply may be that Nikon is using a different motor strategy in the S line lenses (stepper motors, as in the AF-P lenses), not how fast the camera's autofocus logic is working. PDF files can be viewed using free Adobe® Reader® software.Download Adobe® Reader®. I don't see this as an issue on the Z6 as the "bundled lag" is still less than many consumer DSLRs. Now many are interpreting that to mean that you can get the Z6 really wet and not have issues. Rather than pointing you first at the Z7 review and then having a short review here of the differences, and rather than trying to completely rewrite the same thoughts with different words, I decided that the approach of duplication with rewrite of specific areas that are different is the best approach. The Sony A7 Mark III does a bit better at that last bit than the Nikon Z6 (or Z7 for that matter): Sony's eye detect uses a slightly smaller box than the Nikon, and that seems to be the difference. Yes, you can use your older EN-EL15 in the Z6. What you expect from the DSLRs is pretty much what you get from the Z6 and the FTZ. No detail too small. That said, I'd say that the video from the Z6 looks very good, and recorded on an Atomos Ninja, the Z6 can clearly compete with pro video cameras. It's not clear why Nikon made the aliasing asymmetrical, but the overall result is less overall aliasing than most regular AA filters. That normally includes being in an autofocus mode and manually overriding the focus, but there's a bit of a gotcha if you're a back button focusing addict: you have to hold that button down while manually focusing, which seems counterintuitive. In reality, there are thousands of autofocus points in the camera, as is true of most mirrorless cameras using phase detect on sensor. Both cameras have 24 megapixel sensors, and both launched around the same price (although the D750 currently sells for $1300). We'd be quibbling if we tried to ferret out meaningful differences. I bought two extras of the new version of the battery just in case; I've rarely dipped into a second battery in a day's work with either the Z6 or Z7, even shooting some bits of video, and never have had to resort to the third. But I've found many of my chipped lenses do seem to support it. It's rare I get to a second battery in a day's worth of shooting, and I'm talking about covering events for hours. Second, not a single "eye detect" system I know of actually consistently focuses on the eye. I'll try to stay as brief as I can be here, as I really want you to read the handling and performance sections of the review. The headings of the sections of this Agreement are inserted for convenience only and shall not constitute a part hereof or affect in any way the meaning or interpretation of this Agreement. I'm one to give credit where it's due: Nikon did an excellent job on the Z6 overall design approach. It’s compatible with approximately 360 F-mount lenses, letting you convert your camera into a versatile, professional piece of photography equipment. I'm impressed by focus speed. Onto those XQD or CFExpress cards you have the option of saving JPEG, TIFF, or NEF files, plus NEF files also can be saved in the Small and Medium sizes at 12-bit, as well, though I'm not sure why that is necessary on a 24mp camera that isn't exactly producing huge files to start with (12-bit Large is 22.5MB in file size, while 12-bit Small is 12.7MB but reduces the buffer size). The Nikon Z6 is made in Sendai, Japan, with about three-quarters of the assembly done by automation according to Nikon. You can save your camera configuration to your memory card, but you can only do that once; Nikon still doesn't support multiple, named settings files. This filter steals a little acuity from edges and anti-aliases the data, but that also has the tendency to mask some of the photon noise, too. The image sensor itself appears to be similar to the one used in the Sony A7m3. Come in a little tighter and drop the aperture f/1.4, okay, the camera better not have focused on the eyelashes. Out back we get the usual 3.2" 2.1m dot touchscreen Nikon has been using lately. Curiously, I find that giving the Z6 "more" to look at (e.g. Slow motion tops out at 36Mbps. The Z6 gets one XQD slot. It's when you start adding more subjects where I've found instances where the camera did the wrong thing. Landscape shooters should rejoice (though be aware that the Z6 only stops down to f/5.6 in the viewfinder unless you assign a Depth of Field button or use my DOF trick), so you're not seeing depth of field accurately at small apertures. Download software for Nikon products. It doesn't seem like those designers had their hands tied, either. They've had plenty of experience, and they've continued migrating their top DSLR designers over to help design these mirrorless cameras. 24mp IMO is plenty if you don't need that either. The Z6 does not have a built-in flash. You further consent to service of process in any action arising from this Agreement by regular mail or other commercially reasonable means of receipted delivery. What it comes down to is this: if you've got Nikon F-mount lenses, the Z6 is the best choice you have right now in transitioning from DSLR to mirrorless at the lower cost full frame level. VR? It's easy to turn off the VR in the camera, then mount a VR lens and control VR from there, then forget that you've left VR off in the camera when you mount another non-VR lens. That recommendation has a tiny bit of conditionality to it, though, mostly for folk who shoot fast moving subjects. Nikon claims 5-stops CIPA from the on-sensor VR. Other than that, I find the Z6 to be a well-rounded camera that rarely gets in my way. You may have seen the videos of autofocus tests where people pop in and of the frame, or faces get hidden briefly. So: the Sony is better, though perhaps not by as big a lead that Sony worshipers think their product has. The bigger issue with the EVF is that it doesn't black out (except when switching from action to image review, where's there's a slight blackout between the two modes). I'll get to accuracy in the Performance section, below. Take bracketing, for instance. While no longer alone with this feature after similar launches from others, Nikon was the first to introduce a true full frame 4K with 10-bit uncompressed 4:2:2 off the HDMI port. Are the Z6 and Z7 as fast at that as the D5 or D6? YOU MAY NOT ALTER OR REMOVE ANY COPYRIGHT, TRADEMARK OR OTHER PROTECTIVE NOTICES CONTAINED IN THE MANUAL. It's when you compare the Z6 against the D780 or the Sony A7 Mark III that the Z6 starts coming up a bit short in a few handling areas (that said, Sony's buttons and menus present a bigger handling problem, which fortunately Nikon hasn't replicated in the Z6). For instance, 5:4 crop isn’t available on the Z6 but is on the Z7. Fortunately, firmware 2.0 and later have fixed this, and now 3D Tracking works as you'd expect it to coming from a Nikon DSLR. Video capabilities of the Z6 are extensive, and should excite videographers. Which makes the Z6 a bit of a "slow" camera to work with compared to the best Nikon DSLRs. I've noticed that a bit on the Sony cameras, too (larger detection area seems to give the camera more useful information). The 70-300mm AF-P lens on the Z6 is wicked fast to get to the focus point, the 200-500mm f/5.6E lens clearly and noticeably slower. Nikon has already upgraded the slot to also support CFExpress cards in a firmware update. The firmware updates made a few differences to things I wrote, but not substantively. In a couple of cases, that meant lost shots. In both 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz modes I'm getting the same basic numbers, with the fastest transfers running a bit over 2.5MB/s. The 3.69m dot half-inch LCD is basically a quad VGA monitor (1280 x 960) sitting behind some impressive Nikon glass for a very excellent eyepiece. Another simplification that didn't belong in this class of camera: removal of the channel highlights abilities. Virtually all of these are "down in the weeds" issues, though. It's been rare that I've hit the raw buffer on my Z6, but I have done it a few times (not that it helped me get "the shot" ;~). In bright (but not extreme contrast) daylight scenes I would tend to agree with Nikon that this is the best EVF so far; I often forget I am using a mirrorless camera. This is mirrorless versatility as only Nikon could create. Metering? That's with the low light focus function enabled; normally it's -3.5EV. CIPA says 310 shots with the viewfinder only. It's on a platform that allows tilting up a bit more than 90° and tilting down about 45°. ISO sensitivity. Nikon themselves offer the Z6 in a Filmmaker's Kit (see photo, above). The Nikon Z6 is Nikon’s latest full frame mirrorless camera released in November. Both for stills (autofocus) and video (raw support). It almost seems like everything Nikon did other than use an EN-EL15 battery as the base is a complete afterthought. When I originally wrote this review I was hoping that the next Nikon DSLR learned from the new things that the Z6 and Z7 brought to the table. Still slower than my network, though, and by a long shot. YOU MAY NOT ASSIGN OR OTHERWISE DISPOSE OF, MODIFY, ADAPT, TRANSLATE, RENT, LEASE, LOAN, RESELL, DISTRIBUTE, NETWORK, OR CREATE OR HAVE CREATED DERIVATIVE WORKS BASED UPON THE MANUAL OR ANY PART THEREOF. For those of you whose mouth just dropped, you're forgetting that Nikon began making mirrorless cameras in 2011 with the Nikon 1 (J1 and V1 models). First, with video Nikon is claiming only a 2-stop improvement at the sensor, which can be improved to 5-stops via turning on an additional feature, Electronic VR (only works with video, as it moves the scan area). A somewhat bigger issue with the Z6 handling is the startup delay. Consider this image: I'm just far enough away from the subjects that the camera has stayed on face detect. I'm being very picky and detailed here, because these are the things Nikon has to correct to make a best-in-class camera that will drive the competition nuts and put customers into a nirvana state. If you have any other Z6 II and Z7 II related videos or links, please post them in the comments section. There's been some confusion about frame rates with the Z6. The new Z mount is distinguished by the smallest flange distance to date from the main competitors (16mm compared to a more typical 18-20mm). If you've been reading reviews that claim the Z6 is one of the first Nikon mirrorless cameras, then you're either misreading (it probably said "first full frame mirrorless...") or the reviewer's credibility is in deep question. I know many of you will be disappointed that you need XQD or CFExpress cards to use the Z6, but I'm not at all disappointed by that. Your thumb is going to be getting a workout should you try this, particularly with back button focus enabled. The Nikon definitely is picking up eyelashes in many scenarios I throw at it. In both steps #2 and #3, if you have more than two human subjects the autofocus detection tends to be a little jumpy and more difficult to predict where it's going to go. Still, for shorter takes using the kind of lens you'd normally use for video (e.g. The Sony sometimes gets the pupil in focus if it's big enough in the frame. Please read this Agreement carefully before beginning download. Event shooters be warned.). I believe that if you understand both cameras well (Z6 and A7 Mark III), you should be able to get good and consistent results. XQD/CFExpress cards are the most reliable I've used to date, they perform better than SD cards in my experience, and it's rare that I miss not having the second slot. My friend Roger Cicala has torn a Z7 down (the Z6 is virtually identically), and his observations mostly match mine: Nikon has put seals everywhere on the Z series. One thing I'm not sure about is the ability to assign the focus ring on Z mount lenses to other functions (exposure, exposure compensation, aperture, etc. It works, but it might not work the way you think it does (or should). If you leave the camera in the usual mechanical shutter mode and use longer exposures on anything less than an absolutely secure tripod support, VR doesn't seem to do a great job of correcting the low level vibration from the initial shutter opening. The current Sony A7/A9 models don't have this problem. That's enough to get the Goldilocks effect, and it didn't change for the better when Nikon added CFExpress support in firmware. One problem with that is that not all functions are actually saved in U1, U2, and U3. In other words, focus is performed at f/2.8 if you're set at f/2.8, at f/5.6 if you're set at f/5.6. Both are weather sealed as well with the body. I can find plenty of places where the Z6 does not handle like a Nikon DSLR. The primary differences are dictated by the mirrorless nature of the Z6, not random design choices.

But which face? I can't see any meaningful difference in focus speed performance. We may be unable to respond to inquiries from individuals who have not purchased our products. Well, a lot. For a first generation full frame mirrorless camera, Nikon managed to make a solid product that is good enough to give even the dedicated DSLR user some second thoughts. The good news is that the delay coming out of standby mode is pretty short. We've hit the Big Subject of interest here: autofocus. There's a hidden Custom Setting #A13 that pops up when you mount a three-ring lens. Of course, you can't mount a DSLR lens directly on the mirrorless Z6. Canon hasn't. Even with the many additional lenses added since, there's still a paucity of lens choice in the Z mount that will take some time to go away. That nets a 0.8x magnification with a 21mm eyepoint. You should also know that the Z6 respects shooting aperture up to f/5.6. Nikon claims 273 points for autofocus, but that's selectable single points using the camera controls. Apart from the Small and Medium sizes, which I don't see much value in, raw shooters are going to have a 33 to 43 frame buffer. The Nikon Z 6 is a full-frame mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera produced by Nikon. I want the USB connection to power the camera, period. The Nikon Z6 is targeted as a general-purpose mirrorless camera, with its 24 MP sensor, 12 FPS continuous shooting speed, and 273 autofocus points. One interesting change is that SnapBridge now allows you to shoot raw files and still push over 2mp JPEGs to your smartphone (didn't I request that two years ago?). The new firmware has an Auto setting that's appropriate. There's a little "secret sauce" in the underlying decision making Nikon doesn't want to reveal. The U1/U2/U3 settings don't actually remember all camera set parameters (for instance, they don't remember Release Mode). Somehow, Nikon has gotten the same level of accuracy without having to do the extra step (my guess is that they're building depth maps from multiple nearby sites to help them understand where focus should be). This was the second camera to use Nikon's new Z-mount system after the release of the 45.75 megapixel Nikon Z 7 in September 2018. Again, it's a really good camera. All combined with the advantages of a lightweight mirrorless design, a revolutionary new full-frame lens mount with matched lenses and seamless integration with Nikon’s DSLR system—including the F-Mount Nikkor lenses you love. In the event a dispute arises under or in connection with this Agreement, you hereby consent to personal jurisdiction of Japan and waive any objection that such forum is inconvenient. Shutter lag is technically 65ms (the D850, for example, maxes out at 45ms). no continuous theater/music/dance performances). For landscapes I don't see any advantage with going Z6/ii. Source of the review camera: purchased via NPS Priority Purchase. Why can't I find your works in bookstores? That's ~3 seconds at 12 fps, which is still more than enough for most people. So, other than the fact that the mount is bigger and closer to the sensor, the Z6 lens mount and lens attributes are recognizably Nikon to Nikon users. Dynamic Area (basically a wide 9-point Dynamic) also works very much like the DSLRs, though it can look too far away from the subject you really want tracked at times (i.e., the pattern needs to be tightened some, as it's closer to the 25-point version on the DSLRs). Coupled with a very wide throat opening of 52mm (compared to Sony's narrow 43.6mm), Nikon can put larger lens elements closer to the sensor than anyone else with a full frame camera. (The A7/A9 have a different problem in that they "cheat" a bit on tracking sequences and think that DOF will cover you with small misses the system makes.) That means you really don't want to have the camera off if you're doing anything that approaches spontaneous shooting. Over a year later: I didn't change much with this edited version of the review. If you've been paying attention, I've obviously been getting in focus shots of fast moving subjects (animals and sports) with both my Z6 and Z7. Telling the camera to switch to the other subject is simple, though it may fight you if the subjects are moving a lot. But the ability to hold bright white under saturation with detail and still hold the same level of detail in deep, dark shadow is one of the things the current full frame 24mp sensors all do well. It's not at all difficult to recommend the Z6. Meanwhile, manual focus lenses on the Z6 shine. Unlike the Nikon 1, the Z series is fully integrated into Nikon's long SLR/DSLR legacy. Compared to the Sony A7 Mark III, the Nikon Z6 doesn't quite match the Sony's face/eye detect abilities, but it also doesn't have the Sony's handling issues, particularly in winter use with light gloves on. The 3D Tracking (Subject Tracking) option originally used was useless on the Z6 (and Z7). WB? Because mirrorless cameras "double-clutch" the shutter—first they close while the sensor resets for shooting, then they open to start exposure, close to end exposure, and finally open again to restore live view—Nikon has also added an electronic front curtain shutter (EFCS) mode, which you'll pretty much want to use all the time for shutter speeds lower than 1/250 (otherwise too much shutter slap can impact the image). Both those choices produce incredibly clear and rich 4K video. That mostly has to do with geometry. Nikon now has probably the best follow focus I've seen out of any ILC camera doing video. That's a decent bit rate, and higher than on the Sony A7m3, but not spectacular (the GH5 does 400Mbps in 4K). Okay, how about that new camera-to-computer transfer via Wi-Fi? While there isn't a change in power rating, there is one significant change in that new battery: it can be charged in camera (while Nikon supplies the EH-7P charger and cable to do this with the Z7, those do not come with the Z6, you have to buy those separately). By keeping the deep hand grip and traditional Nikon controls coupled with the usual Nikon high-end build quality, the Z6 still feels like a Nikon. You can use your EN-EL15a, too. I've seen several where the lens switch doesn't seem to be recognized by the camera. Those numbers are better than the Nikon D750, one of the best low-light focusing DSLRs to date. Almost. ), or the third ring on the top end lenses. But not banding in this image. So as long as you're shooting at f/1.8 to f/5.6, you're seeing the correct focus point and DOF in the viewfinder (and on the rear LCD). This also removes the Bank settings from the menu and provides the U1, U2, and U3 user settings of the consumer Nikon DSLRs. Frankly, if you take the older FSI Sony 24mp Exmor used in the D750 and other cameras and map it against the Z6 you won't find a huge differential. Shop B&H for special deals on Nikon Z6 II & Z7 II Kits like Z 7II Mirrorless Digital Camera with 24-70mm f/4 Lens and FTZ Adapter Kit, at the best prices. The Z6 has a full-frame sensor in a camera that weighs less than a DX D7500, and is built to the same standards as the D850. Just like on the DSLRs. So hitting the eyelashes instead of the pupil looks fine to most people. Menu items, options, and messages that appear in the camera displays are shown in bold.Throughout this manual, the display in camera monitor and viewfinder during shooting is referred to as the “shooting display”; in most cases, the illustrations show the monitor.

A comprehensive instruction manual for Nikon Z 7/Z 6 mirrorless cameras. Hopefully Nikon corporate sees and understands all that I've written in this section. But the wording and the interaction with the Custom Setting #F2 ring configuration is clumsy, confusing, and not well thought out. The photosites on those rows can provide both focus and exposure information. That's because the hardware and performance tuning were taking preference to get the camera out the door to the first customers. Nikon uses rows of phase detect photosite masking on the Z6 sensor. There are some odd choices Nikon has made. Do note that the autofocus performance does tend to get impacted if you are shooting N-Log to the external HDMI; apparently there's just too much processing going on for Nikon to keep the focus system running at the same refresh rate. I've gotten as little as one hour performance from video shoots (with no external accessories, but with things like VR and autofocus turned on). Yeah, I can pull noise out of black ;~). And if you remember what I wrote back in 2011 on the sansmirror.com site, Nikon put some of their top designers (D3 team) on the Nikon 1.
