Nikon is pleased to announce the release of the full-frame, Nikon FX format mirrorless cameras, the Z 7 and Z 6, as well as Nikkor Z lenses, featuring a new, larger-diameter mount.
The Z mount system is comprised of mirrorless cameras featuring a new, larger-diameter mount, as well as compatible Nikkor lenses and accessories. This system has been realised through the pursuit of a new dimension in optical performance. It has inherited Nikon’s tradition of quality, superior imaging technology, great operability, and high reliability, all innovated from its digital SLR cameras.
Inspired by light.
With the world’s widest full-frame mount, the agile Z 7 mirrorless camera captures light as never before.¹
BIG MOUNT. BIG IMPACT.
The wide 55 mm mount diameter means your Z series camera takes in more light. Just 16 mm between the mount and the camera’s full-frame image sensor means more of that light reaches the sensor.
INSPIRED BY LIGHT.
From twilight blues to graphic shadows. The powerful optical design of Nikon Z mount lenses, combined with the wide mount, gives you the power to work magic with the light.
Life in front of you
Be bold. Be subtle. With 45.7 MP of full-frame imaging power, beauty is yours to define.
Incredible detail. Phenomenal focus.
The back-illuminated 45.7 MP full-frame CMOS sensor with focal-plane phase-detection AF captures razor-sharp images.
The blazing Expeed 6 image processor delivers images with low noise and stunning dynamic range at both high and low ISO values.
Full frame. Full vision.
Meet the challenge of ultra-high pixel counts with phenomenal precision. Follow your intuition all the way to the edge.
Stay sharp with ultra-wide autofocus (AF) coverage across 90 % of the frame. Combined with the incredible focusing power of Nikon Z mount lenses, even Subjects at the edge of the frame are easily detected.
The AF system spots movement instantly. Even small or fast-moving subjects are tracked with absolute precision in any light. And you can use Pinpoint AF mode to hone in on the smallest details.
INSIDE THE LIGHT
Exposure metering down to -4 EV is available when shooting with a lens that has a maximum aperture of f/2 or faster.
CAPTURE THAT EXPRESSION
An intelligent Face-Detection-AF processor detects and holds faces, even when the subject briefly looks away.
Visions newly realised
Press and hold to experience 9 fps.
More light. More detail. More expression. Thrilling speed.
Open to every setting
Whether it’s stills or 4K movies, image quality is exceptionally clean across the ultra-wide light-sensitivity range. You can capture rich tonal definition under the brightest sunlight. And benefit from the highest possible detail in the lowest light.
Rock-steady Vibration Reduction
In-camera five-axis optical Vibration Reduction (VR) compensates for camera shake in five directions. Stills stay sharp. Video is steady.
Reveal it all
Shoot every scene in exquisite detail with full-frame 4K video.
Record full-frame 4K/UHD movies at 30p. Achieve enthralling slow motion with richly detailed Full HD movies at up to 120p. You can easily capture still frames while filming in 4K or Full HD.
Oversampling from 8K enables 4K footage with spectacular fineness and detail. The fast Expeed 6 processor ensure's beautifully clean files, remarkably free of noise, moiré, and false colour.
Bright Nikon Z mount lenses offer silent autofocus and exquisite bokeh. And you can get an assist from in-camera focus peaking as you manually rack focus through a scene.
AF speed and AF tracking sensitivity can be set during movie recording. The incredible focusing power of Nikon Z mount lenses reduces the unwanted effects of focus breathing, and focus shift when zooming.
CUT. RECUT. INSPIRE.
On location or in the editing suite – find your flow.
Create character. Record at a high 10-bit depth and retrieve 4x more information than with a standard 8-bit recording, giving you maximum image quality for editing and grading. Activate View Assist to see a standard image with simple grading compensation.
TIME CODE OUTPUT
Stay in tune. Record time code in drop-frame or non-drop-frame formats, and output via 10-bit HDMI. The Z 7 is Atomos Open Protocol compatible: you can sync the start/stop of HDMI movie recording via your external recorder. Or via the camera.
Balance the light. In-camera Active D-Lighting balances lights and shadows in high-contrast scenes. Perfect for footage that needs to be ready to go as soon as you're wrapped.
Create new worlds
4K and 8K time-lapse with smooth exposure transitions
You can create 4K/UHD time-lapse sequences in-camera. And the sensor’s 45.7 effective megapixels let you create jaw-dropping 8K time-lapse movies in post, using stills captured during interval timer shooting.
Straight to camera
Nikon’s advanced 3686k-dot electronic view finder keeps the view clear. The ultra-bright, ultra-sharp EVF doesn’t leave anything out of the frame.
Aspherical glass elements and protective coatings prevent flare, reflections, and dirt from limiting your view. Benefit from high visibility at night, and clear views in bright light.
The large, clear OLED EVF reproduces colours naturally and handles motion smoothly. Sharp, stable images make composition comfortable—even if you’re panning quickly or have zoomed in to confirm focus.
The EVF can display images as they’ll look with settings applied—or you can go with a natural image, similar to that of an optical viewfinder. You can overlay key shooting information to aid composition in either view.
STRONG IS AGILE
Flexibility. Stamina. Precision. At every turn.
A tough yet lightweight magnesium alloy body and extensive weather sealing are this camera’s ticket to anywhere. The high-precision shutter has been tested for 200,000 cycles. The grip is deep, comfortable, and secure.
One adapter. Endless inspiration.
With the Mount Adapter FTZ attached to your Z 7 camera, you’re free to use existing F-mount Nikkor lenses. There’s no loss in image quality, and NIKKOR lenses without VR will find new levels of sharpness.
CREATE. CONNECT. COLLABORATE.
Connect to a smart device
Use the built-in Wi-Fi® and Bluetooth® to quickly connect to any smart device with Snap Bridge. Instantly share JPEGs. Shoot stills and video remotely.
Connect to a computer
Wirelessly transfer JPEG and RAW images smoothly in Station mode or Access Point mode. Use the optional WT-7A wireless transmitter for wired/wireless LAN over greater distances.
Make your mark
Nikon’s in-camera Picture Control system offers a range of preset options and you can create custom controls for specific subjects and scenes. Easily define parameters such as sharpness, saturation, and hue whether you’re shooting stills or video.
