NOW IN STOCK: The Nikon Z 6!
21 January 2019 | Category: General News
Adaptability. It’s about remaining fluid, open. Preparing for nothing, but being ready for anything and thriving in whatever situation comes along. The Z 6 is perhaps the most adaptable camera Nikon has ever created; it’s the perfect combination of speed, resolution and low-light performance. This is 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 F-Mount Nikkor lenses.
All the way sharp
The back-illuminated 24.5 MP full-frame CMOS sensor with focal-plane AF captures richly detailed, razor-sharp images.
The blazing EXPEED 6 image processor delivers images with low noise and stunning dynamic range at both high and low ISO values.
Big mount. Big impact.
The wide 55 mm mount diameter means your Z series camera takes in more light. Just 16 mm between the mount and the camera’s full-frame image sensor means more of that light reaches the sensor.
Inspired by light
From twilight blues to graphic shadows. The powerful optical design of Nikon Z mount lenses, combined with the wide mount, gives you the power to work magic with light.
One adapter. Endless inspiration.
With the Mount Adapter FTZ attached to the Z 6, you’re free to use existing F-mount NIKKOR lenses. There’s no loss of image quality, plus non-VR lenses will find new levels of sharpness with in-camera VR.
100–51200 ISO. Inspired, even after dark.
From 3am city scenes to low-light portraits, you have the freedom to catch details in the dark.
Stay sharp with ultra-wide autofocus (AF) coverage across 90 % of the frame. Combined with the incredible focusing power of Nikon Z mount lenses, even subjects at the edge of the frame are easily detected. And vertical shooting is incredibly precise.
The AF system spots movement instantly. Even small or fast-moving subjects are tracked with absolute precision in any light. And you can use Pinpoint AF mode to hone in on the smallest details.
Inside the light
Exposure metering down to -4 EV is available when shooting with a lens that has a maximum aperture of f/2 or faster. Find nuance in shadow. Lock onto details even when the only light is the light of the moon.
Capture the expression
An intelligent Face-Detection-AF processor detects and holds faces. That glance. That expression. It’s yours—even if someone is moving quickly.
Timing is everything
12 fps continuous shooting. Find full frames of beauty inside the action.
Rock-steady Vibration Reduction:
In-camera five-axis optical Vibration Reduction (VR) compensates for camera shake in five directions. Stills stay sharp. Video is steady.
Sport Mode delivers a stable viewfinder image when shooting exceptionally fast action, or when panning. When shooting video, the five-axis optical VR works with electronic VR to deliver incredibly steady footage.
- Five-stop advantage
The in-camera five-axis optical VR lets you shoot at shutter speeds up to five stops slower than otherwise possible. Shoot clearer photos as daylight fades or film scenes without the unwanted effects of camera shake.
Aspherical glass elements and protective coatings prevent flare, reflections, and dirt from limiting your view. You’ll see everything clearly, whether you’re exploring the night or shooting in bright daylight.
The large, clear OLED EVF reproduces colours naturally and handles motion smoothly. Sharp, stable images make composition comfortable—even if you’re panning quickly or have zoomed in to confirm focus.
The EVF can display images as they’ll look with settings applied—or you can go with a natural image, similar to that of an optical viewfinder. You can overlay key shooting information to aid composition in either view.
Record full-frame 4K/UHD movies at 30p. Achieve enthralling slow motion with richly detailed Full HD movies at up to 120p. You can easily capture still frames while filming in 4K or Full HD.
Oversampling from 6K enables 4K footage with spectacular fineness and detail. The fast EXPEED 6 processor ensures beautifully clean files, remarkably free of noise, moiré, and false colour.
Bright Nikon Z mount lenses offer silent autofocus and exquisite bokeh. And you can get an assist from in-camera focus peaking as you manually rack focus through a scene.
AF speed and AF tracking sensitivity can be set during movie recording. The incredible focusing power of Nikon Z mount lenses reduces the unwanted effects of focus breathing, and focus shift when zooming.
Create character. Record at a high 10-bit depth and retrieve 4x more information than with a standard 8-bit recording, giving you maximum image quality for editing and grading. Activate View Assist to see a standard image with simple grading compensation.
Balance the light. In-camera Active D-Lighting balances lights and shadows in high-contrast scenes. Perfect for footage that needs to be ready to go as soon as you’re wrapped.
Stay in tune. Record timecode in drop-frame or non-drop-frame formats, and output via 10-bit HDMI. The Z 6 is Atomos Open Protocol compatible: you can sync the start/stop of HDMI movie recording via your external recorder. Or via the camera.
