The Nikon Z 6 II delivers an exceptional hybrid still and video experience. The 24.5-megapixel full-frame sensor with backside illumination provides sharp, detailed images even in low-light situations. Powerful dual processors bring you 4K UHD video at 60p and fast, precise autofocus. With two card slots, plenty of creative features, and robust connectivity, the Z 6 II integrates seamlessly into your workflow.
More of everything
The Z 6II builds on the extreme versatility of the Z mirrorless platform with more autofocus options, more video capabilities, more low light performance, more buffer, more frames per second…more of everything you want in a hybrid still and video camera.
For the first time in a Nikon camera, the Z 6II is powered by not one, but two Expeed 6 processing engines. They work together for faster image processing, more buffer capacity and more overall speed.
Experience 14 FPS continuous shooting at full resolution—RAW or JPG—with a buffer 3.5X larger than the previous generation and minimal EVF blackout between shots.
More autofocus power.
Optimized for stills, high-speed sequences and video work, the Z 6II’s 273-point Hybrid AF system brings performance improvements, new options for Eye-Detection AF and easier selecting of AF modes.
See in the dark.
With a big leap forward in low-light autofocus performance, the Z 6II can find your subject in half the available light as its predecessor*. Keep shooting into the evening with the same fast, accurate AF performance.
*AF detection range starts at -4.5 EV
The AF system’s 90% frame coverage lets you compose the way you want, from the start. Either manually choose one of 273 focus points across the frame, or let subject tracking automatically select the focus points based on where your subject is within the frame—even at the far edges.
The Z 6II builds on the Z 6’s formidable video capabilities and might just be Nikon’s most versatile video camera yet. All the benefits of the Z mirrorless system plus 4K Ultra HD at 60p*, Full HD at 120p, 4K time-lapse and so much more.
*DX-crop mode only. Z 6II firmware upgrade scheduled for free download February 2021.
Keep it simple. Or go big.
When keeping it simple, record your 4K footage in-camera on a CFexpress, XQD or SD card. Step things up by attaching an external recorder (sold separately) to capture 10-bit N-Log or HDR (HLG) footage. Or go all the way with a paid firmware upgrade and compatible external recorder* and output 12-bit ProRes RAW or Blackmagic RAW format** via HDMI.
*Such as Atomos Ninja (ProRes RAW) or Blackmagic Design’s Video Assist 12G HDR recorder (Blackmagic RAW).
**Black Magic RAW support via a paid firmware upgrade available February 2021.
Slow it way down.
Slow down time and capture every detail of movement with 120p Full HD footage that can be played back at 30p, 25p or 24p. Add silky smooth slow motion sequences to your videos to add emphasis and drama or highlight movement.
The stability you need.
Powerful 5-axis VR image stabilization keeps your photos sharp and your videos steady—up to five stops in up to five directions* (yaw, pitch, roll, X and Y). Handheld shooting made easy.
*When using Nikkor Z lenses; based on CIPA Standards. This value is achieved when the Nikkor Z 24-70mm f/4 S lens is attached, with zoom set at the maximum telephoto position.
Live stream like a pro.
Stream the sharpest, clearest, most flattering footage from the Z 6II with Nikon’s free Webcam Utility. When using a single USB-C connection, your computer will actually power the Z 6II while capturing video. Stream for as long as you need without any extra cables, power adapters or third-party hardware.
More clarity. Less blackout.
Experience the best view through the Z 6II’s advanced viewfinder with minimal blackout between shots during high speed shooting (Continuous H). Nikon optics magnify the 3.6M-dot Quad-VGA EVF, and what you see is how your shot will look. Exposure, ISO, white balance, Picture Control and creative filters are all applied in real-time. You can customize what information gets shown in the viewfinder—or hide it all for a pure view.
Make it yours.
Prefer back button focus? Often switch between Picture Controls? Need a quick way to select focus area? No problem. Add your favorite functions to the i-Menu then access them from the LCD or EVF. Customize Fn buttons or reassign buttons you don’t typically use to activate your go-to modes, menus or settings. Navigating the camera’s intuitive, clean user interface is a breeze.
