The Nikon Z 7 w/ ProRes RAW Upgrade is a high-resolution FX-format camera capable of outputting a RAW stream over HDMI to compatible recorders like the ATOMOS Shogun 7 HDR Pro. Key features include:
Upgraded to output ProRes RAW
45.7MP BSI CMOS sensor and EXPEED 6 processor
Improved autofocus and focus tracking
4K UHD video capture and 8K time-lapse
ProRes RAW. The Nikon Z 7 w/ ProRes RAW Upgrade includes an upgrade to the standard Nikon Z7 that enables RAW sensor data to be output directly to a compatible recorder over HDMI for improved color grading control and overall post-production flexibility. The repacked Apple ProRes RAW format maintains the highest possible image quality in file sizes more manageable than traditional RAW footage.
Unmatched Image Quality. The all-new 45.7MP full-frame sensor is paired with a new EXPEED 6 processor to give you a native ISO range of 64-25,600 and an extended ISO range of 32-102,400. 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 9 fps high-speed continuous RAW-shooting frame rate and ensures speedy functionality.
493-Point Phase-Detect Autofocus. The Z7’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.
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 and 8K Time-Lapse. The Z7 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 Interval Timer Mode gives you 8K time-lapses or in-camera 4K time-lapses, both of which can use up to 9,999 exposures. 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 Z7 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 0.80x magnification to give you a bright, clear view of what the sensor sees. The 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 Z7 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 Compatible. The Z7 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 Z7 is also compatible with EN-EL15 and EN-EL15a batteries, but you can’t charge those in camera.
Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. The Z7 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.
At a base level, you will definitely need a compatible recorder like the ATOMOS Shogun 7 HDR Pro or ATOMOS Ninja V, Final Cut Pro, and a computer capable of handling large 4K RAW files. You will also need an appropriate HDMI cable like the Sanho 2.6ft HyperThin HDMI Male-Mini and SSD like the Sony AtomX 1TB SSDmini.
Please note, not all HDMI cables or SSDs are rated for 4K RAW transmission. If you have any questions regarding cable or media compatibility, please contact us and a tech will be happy to help you determine the right gear for your shoot.
