The Nikon Z6 is a high-resolution FX-format in Nikon’s new, compact, large-diameter, and full-frame Z mount. Key features include:

  • Exceptional image quality in a compact build

  • 24.5MP BSI CMOS sensor and EXPEED 6 processor

  • Improved autofocus and focus tracking

  • 4K UHD video capture

Nikon Z System. The Z6 is one of the first cameras in Nikon’sfull-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 24.5MP full-frame sensor is paired with a new EXPEED 6 processor to give you a native ISO range of 100-51,200 and an extended ISO range of 50-204,800. 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 processor gives you a 12 fps high-speed continuous RAW-shooting frame rate and ensures speedy functionality.

273-Point Phase-Detect Autofocus. The Z6’s AF system offers 273 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.

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.

4K UHD Video. The Z6 isn’t just for ultra-sharp stills; it’s capable of in-camera 4K UHD recording at 24/25/30p, 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. Unlike previous Nikon mirrorless cameras, the Z6 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 EVFboasts 3.6m-dot resolution, 100% coverage, and 0.80x magnification to give you a bright, clear view of what the sensor sees. The tilting 3.2-inch 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 Z6 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 extended shoots in mind, while the joystick makes for fast and intuitive option and focus-point selection.

XQD Compatible. The Z6 includes one XQD memory-card slot for superior speed, capability, and reliability. It’s also compatible with CFexpress.

Power Options. The included EN-EL15b battery gives you up to 310 shots per charge and can be charged in camera. The Z6 is also compatible with EN-EL15 and EN-EL15a batteries, but you can’t charge those in camera.

Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. The Z 6 uses Nikon’s SnapBridge platform to transfer images from 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.
