If you’re looking for a versatile mirrorless camera that can be used with any of Nikon’s Z-mount and F-mount NIKKOR lenses, or you’re looking for something that will integrate with their DSLR system, this is the camera for you.
The EXPEED 6 processor allows continuous RAW shooting at 12 frames per second, and when combined with the 24.5-megapixel full-frame sensor with no optical low-pass filter, you’ll get sharp, high-resolution images. The native ISO range is 100-51,200, but is expandable to 50-204,800. A built-in 5-axis sensor vibration reduction system offers up to five stops of camera shake reduction with Z-mount lenses and up to three stops when using the FTZ Mount Adaptor.
A 273-point phase detection system covers 90 percent of the vertical and horizontal image area and tracks out to the edges of each frame. There is also a Hybrid Autofocus mode that’s especially handy while shooting video that allows you to toggle automatically between phase and contrast detect systems.
This camera is just as impressive when recording video as it when shooting stills. Nikon’s N-Log gamma makes flat footage look dynamic as the Electronic VR makes every handheld shot smooth. Complete with focus peaking to help you maintain your focus and zebra stripes for monitoring overexposure, this camera lets you capture video in 4K UHD at 24/25/30p and Full HD at 1080/120p. It has stereo audio recording capabilities, but you can also attach an external mic via an eighth-inch output jack and simultaneously monitor audio quality through the eighth-inch input jack.
Known as the most adaptable of Nikon’s cameras, buttons and dials have been placed with ergonomic thoughtfulness. D850 fans will already know where the sub-selector and AF buttons are.The electronic viewfinder has 3.6m dot resolution and 0.80 magnification with 100 percent coverage while the 3.2-inch 1m-dot rear tilting touchscreen can be used to compose your images when needed.
The Z6 is light but holds its balance when paired with any lens. A magnesium alloy body is weather-sealed and hardy enough to accompany you on any adventure.
Built-in Bluetooth and WiFi allow you to easily send images to your smart device or use it as a remote control. Don’t worry about losing power—the battery lasts for 310 shots per charge and is chargeable in-camera.
