Adaptability. It's about remaining fluid, open. Preparing for nothing, but being ready for anything. Thriving in whatever situation comes along. The Z6 is perhaps the most adaptable camera we've ever created. It's at the sweet spot of speed,resolution and low-light performance. All combined with the advantages of a lightweight mirrorless design, a revolutionary new full-frame lens mount with matched lenses and seamless integration with Nikon's DSLR system-including the F-Mount NIKKOR lenses you love. This is mirrorless versatility as only Nikon could create.
At home in your hands.
A deep grip design and balanced weight feel great with both NIKKOR Z and F-Mount NIKKOR lenses with the Mount Adapter FTZ. Buttons and Dials are comfortably placed with features like the sub-selector and AF-On button in the same position as the D850. Unmistakably Nikon.
Big Performance. Small footprint.
One of the major benefits of the Z6's thin 16mm flange back distance is that cameras can be made smaller and lighter. The Z6 is smaller and lighter than the D750, yet it maintains outstanding handling and balance, even when using telephoto F-Mount NIKKOR lenses. It's as comfortable to carry as it is to shoot with.
Flagship Nikon Durability.
A skeleton forged with ultra-strong magnesium allow, the same material used int he D850 and D5 for its extreme durability and incredible strength-to-weight ratio. The same brake mechanism and shutter blade material used int he D850, tested for 200,000 cycles while actually loaded in the camera. The Z6 is ready for the field.
New Hybrid Autofocus
Using an AF algorithm optimized for its FX-format sensor, Z 6 automatically switches between focal-plane phase-detect AF and contrast-detect AF to fine-tune focus. The light-shielding phase detection pixels are carefully arranged on the sensor to preserve light, ensuring accurate AF even in dim lighting.
Eye-Detection AF is a powerful tool for capturing portraits that tracks and locks focus on your subject’s eye not only with AF-S (Single AF) mode, but also with AF-C (Continuous AF) mode—especially useful when your subject keeps changing their pose. Eye-Detection AF is also capable of intelligently recognizing the eyes of multiple people in the frame,giving you the freedom to choose which person and eye to focus on and can even remain locked on eyes that become partially or temporarily obstructed.
Up To 5 Stops Of VR Image Stabilization
Powerful in-body 5-axis VR image stabilization is applied to whatever Nikkor Z lens you’re using. Up to five stops3 of image stabilization in up to five directions—yaw, pitch, roll, X and Y. During video recording,optical VR is combined with electronic VR (e-VR) for even steadier shots. Normal VR mode for static subjects. Sports VR for moving subjects.
VR For F-Mount NIKKOR Lenses
For the first time, F-Mount Nikkor lenses like the AF-S Nikkor 105mm f/1.4EED or AF-S Nikkor 14-24mm f/2.8G ED can benefit from in-body 3-axisVR4. Nikkor lenses that already have VR, like the AF-S Nikkor 70-200mmf/2.8E FL ED VR, get the added benefit of roll axis for a total of3-axis VR. Just add the optional Mount Adapter FTZ and you’re good to go.
Full Frame 4K Ultra HD
Capture cinematic 16:9 4K UHD/30p video in full-frame using the total width and resolution of the Z 6’s backside-illuminated sensor. Full-pixel readout for sharper 4K footage with rich information equivalent to 6K. Clean output at high ISO. Zero crop factor with full-frame Nikkor Z and F-Mount Nikkor lenses. Focus Peaking in both 4K and 1080p recording.Simultaneous 8MP stills5. This is 4K as it was meant to be.
Shoot up to 9,999 full resolution stills using Interval Timer (and zero shutter vibration), then combine them into one 4K movie with 3rd party software. Or create time-lapse sequences right in the camera with exposure smoothing and extended low-light metering range—great for star trails and light painting.
New Z Mount
17% larger internal diameter than Nikon’s acclaimed F Mount. Wider than any full-frame mount available6. It totally changes what’s possible with lens design. Enhanced low-light performance. Even illumination from corner-to-corner. Maximum apertures as wide as f/0.95. Faster data transfer between camera and lens. This is the ideal balance between mount diameter, large image sensor and flange focal distance.
12fps continuous shooting
Shoot up to 12 FPS at full resolution in Hi+ mode (12-bit RAW or JPEG)without the need for an external battery pack. When speed matters—and it always matters—you’ll catch the shots others might miss.
A great advantage of a mirrorless design is the ability to shoot in near silence. Quietly capture important moments during recitals, weddings,newborn photography…anywhere silence is golden.
