The Nikon Z 7II is a versatile, high-resolution FX-format camera in Nikon’s compact, large-diameter, and full-frame Z mount and an update to the Z7. Key features include:
45.7MP FX-Format BSI CMOS Sensor
UHD 4K60 Video; N-Log & 10-Bit HDMI Out
Dual EXPEED 6 Image Processors
10 fps Cont. Shooting, ISO 64-25600
What’s Changed? The Nikon Z 7II offers several notable improvements over its predecessor, the Z7. Most significant is the inclusion of dual EXPEED 6 processors, which give you higher burst speed, a deeper buffer, and reduced viewfinder blackout. You also get a range of new autofocus modes, improved focusing in low light, expanded video capabilities, dual memory-card slots for greater storage flexibility, and more.
Second-Gen Nikon Z. The Nikon Z 7II is part of Nikon’s full-frame Z-mount system, which gives you exceptional image quality and optical design in a compact build. This system’s inner diameter is 17% larger than the F mount, allowing for more advanced optics and lenses, while the 16mm flange distance is 65% shorter than the F mount, which makes for markedly slimmer body designs. Z-mount cameras are only compatible with Z-mount lenses, and Z-mount lenses only work with Z-mount cameras.
Unmatched Image Quality. The 45.7MP full-frame sensor is paired with dual EXPEED 6 image processors to give you a native ISO range of 64-25600 and an extended ISO range of 32-102400. The sensor’s back-illuminated design gives you clean, low-noise images at high ISO values, while its lack of a conventional low-pass filter gives you exceptional sharpness and resolution. The EXPEED 6 processors gives you a 14 fps high-speed continuous RAW-shooting frame rate and ensures speedy functionality.
493-Point Phase-Detect Autofocus. The Z 7II’s AF system offers 493 phase-detection AF points that cover 90% of the image area both vertically and horizontally, making it great for stills and video. Improvements to Nikon’s tracking focus system promise even better continuous-focus performance, including tracking out to the edges of the frame. The Hybrid Autofocus mode automatically switches between phase- and contrast-detect systems, which makes it ideal for video. The Wide Area Autofocus mode includes face and eye detection, letting you place an autofocus box over a specific subject’s face to tell the camera to focus on that particular person’s eyes—a particularly useful feature if there are multiple people in your scene. The dual processors also let the Z 7II focus in light as low as -3EV with the lens at f/2, and the Low Light Autofocus feature lets you push this even lower for still subjects.
Built-In 5-Axis Vibration Reduction. Nikon has finally joined the photographer-friendly party and integrated a 5-axis sensor-shift Vibration Reduction system into the Z-Series cameras. This superlative VR system offers up to five stops of compensation from camera shake with native Z-mount lenses. Additionally, it is jointly compatible with VR-enable F-mount lenses when using the Nikon FTZ Mount Adapter, albeit with only 3-axis stabilization.
UHD 4K 60p Video. The Z 7II is capable of in-camera 4K UHD recording at 24/25/30/60p, Full HD at up to 120p for slow-motion playback, and uncompressed output to an external recorder via HDMI mini out. The N-Log gamma lets you capture flat-looking footage with a high dynamic range, the Electronic VR feature gives you smooth handheld shooting, and you get 10-bit data output over HDMI. Like its predecessor, the Z 7II includes focus peaking and zebra warnings. You can capture stereo audio in-camera or externally via 1/8-inch mic input, while a separate 1/8-inch headphone input enables precision audio monitoring.
High-Res Electronic Viewfinder and LCD. The built-in EVF boasts 3.6m-dot resolution, 100% coverage, and 0.8x magnification to give you a bright, clear view of what the sensor sees. The 3.2-inch 2.1m-dot rear tilting touchscreen LCD can also be used for image composition and review when shooting at arm’s length.
Compact, Professional Build. As you’d expect, the pro-grade Z 7II is built like a beast. The magnesium-alloy body features dust and weather sealing, so inclement weather and harsh climates won’t be able to stop you. The form factor, ergonomic grip, and anti-slip material all add up to a camera that was designed with extended shoots in mind, while the joystick makes for fast and intuitive option and focus-point selection.
XQD, CFexpress Type B, and UHS-II SD Compatible. The Z 7II includes one XQD/CFexpress Type B memory-card slot for superior speed, capability, and reliability. It also has a second slot for UHS-II SD cards, giving you flexible file-storage options.
Power Options. The included EN-EL15c battery gives you up to 420 (LCD) or 360 (EVF) shots per charge and can be charged in camera. The Z 7II is also compatible with EN-EL15, EN-EL15a, and EN-EL15b batteries, but you can’t charge those in camera.
Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. The Z 7II uses Nikon’s SnapBridge platform to transfer images from the camera to a phone or tablet. Using Bluetooth, you can quickly transfer low-res proxy files to share, tag your files with dates, times and locations, and operate remotely with shutter release and live view display.
No. We bundle a traditional Nikon MH-25a battery charger to every rented Nikon Z7 and Z 7ii camera as that’s generally the preferred/faster battery charging method.
If you would like the AC adapter EH-7P or a USB-C cable sent with your order at no additional charge, just request them in the Special Instructions box upon checkout.
Z-mount cameras are only natively compatible with Z-mount lenses, but you can use the Nikon FTZ Mount Adapter to use F-mount lenses with this camera.
Because of copyright regulations, we can’t send the Nikon software with this camera.
