The Nikon Z7 is a high-resolution FX-format camera and the flagship of Nikon’s compact, large-diameter, and full-frame Z mount. Key features include:

  • Exceptional image quality in a compact build

  • 45.7MP BSI CMOS sensor and EXPEED 6 processor

  • Improved autofocus and focus tracking

  • 4K UHD video capture and 8K time-lapse

Nikon Z System. The Z7 is one of the first cameras in 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 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 UHDrecording 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 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 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 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 Type B 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 Z 7 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.

Q & A

What kind of memory cards does this camera use?
  • This camera only uses XQD and Type B CFexpress memory cards. If you do not have XQD cards, we have plenty available for rent under the recommended section to the left. You may also require a card reader, since this camera only has a USB-C port. Readers are also linked to the left.

Do you rent an underwater housing for this camera? Does this camera include the AC adapter and USB-C cable for in-camera battery charging?
  • No. We bundle a traditional Nikon MH-25a battery charger to every rented Nikon Z7 and Z6 camera as that’s generally the preferred/faster battery charging method.

Will this camera work with my Nikon F-mount lenses?
  • 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.

Does this rental include the Nikon software?
  • Because of copyright regulations, we can’t send the Nikon software with this camera.
