Despite being superseded by the Z 6 II, the original Z 6 remains a stunning example of a 24MP all-rounder. Existing Nikon users can pair F-mount lenses to the body using the supplied FTZ adapter and experience no detrimental effects in performance. The electronic viewfinder is so clear and informative it has the power to change photographer’s perception that optical viewfinders are better. With superb handling characteristics, a highly durable body, extensive weather sealing, intuitive controls and splendid image quality, not forgetting 4K/30p video using the full width of the sensor, it’s a mighty fine example of how general-purpose full-frame camera should be made.

Designed with a compact body, while providing superior high-sensitivity performance and outstanding video features, the Z 6 — featuring 24.5 effective megapixels — is ready to excel in a broad range of shooting scenarios. Taking advantage of the new EXPEED 6 image-processing engine, it achieves a standard sensitivity range of ISO 100-51200, reducing noise effectively even at the higher end while maintaining resolution. Continuous shooting at up to approx. 12 fps is also available. Professional and amateur filmmakers alike will appreciate the camera's wide array of movie functions, including full-pixel readout full-frame 4K UHD, Full HD 100/120p and 10-bit N-Log. The Z 6 offers all this in a streamlined system with the same level of reliability as Nikon D-SLRs, and the superior optical performance of NIKKOR Z lenses.
Nikon FX-format, backside illumination CMOS sensor featuring 24.5 effective megapixels and focal-plane phase-detection AF pixels, while achieving ISO 100-51200 EXPEED 6 provides sharper stills and videos, while effectively reducing noise Picture Control System featuring mid-range sharpening parameter and 20 additional Creative Picture Control options 273-point*1 hybrid AF system offering accurate focus across 90% of the frame Approx. 3690k-dot Quad-VGA EVF with Nikon's superior optical and image-processing technology, providing a clear and comfortable view Up to approx. 12 fps*2 makes it possible to capture fleeting moments Sharp, beautiful full-frame 4K UHD/30p with full-pixel readout N-Log utilizes the extensive color depth range in 10-bit HDMI output, recording richer gradation information for more effective color grading Image sensor shift, in-camera VR that achieves an effect equivalent to a shutter speed up to approx. 5.0 stops*3 faster, compensating vibration in five directions
*1 In FX format with single-point AF.
*2 When using 12-bit RAW, JPEG or TIFF in high-speed continuous shooting (extended). AE is fixed at the first frame.
*3 Based on CIPA Standards. This value is achieved when NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/4 S is attached, with zoom set at the maximum telephoto position.
FTZ adapter: for using Nikon F mount lenses on Nikon mirrorless cameras.
The Mount Adapter FTZ allows long-time Nikon users to continue utilizing their existing NIKKOR F lenses seamlessly with the new system.
Image quality equivalent to using the Nikon mirrorless camera system is ensured, maximizing the optical performance of each NIKKOR F lens.
Shooting with AE is enabled with a total of approx. 360 types of NIKKOR F lens from AI type onwards, while shooting with AF/AE is available with 93 types of AF-P/AF-S/AF-I lenses.
Effective sealing assures dust- and drip-resistant performance equivalent to that of NIKKOR F lenses.
Firmware version 2.0 primary features
1. Eye-Detection autofocus (AF) in stills mode
The new Eye-Detection AF function automatically detects and focuses on human eyes in the auto-area AF (AF-S, AF-C) mode. When the eyes of multiple people are detected, the multi-selector or sub-selector can be used to select which eye the camera focuses on, even when looking through the Electric View Finder. Once the photo is taken, the user can easily verify that the image is in focus by pressing the ‘OK’ button to zoom in on the eye that was the intended focus target.
2. Extended low-light AF detection range
The new firmware enables even faster autofocus when recording dark or dimly lit scenes, with both still-image photography and movie recording. It extends the AF detection range from −1 EV to −2 EV on the Z 7, and from −2 EV to −3.5 EV on the Z 6. When the Z 6’s low-light AF function is enabled, the available low-light AF detection range will be extended from −4 EV to −6 EV, so it will be able to autofocus with even darker conditions.
3. Auto-exposure (AE) tracking in continuous high-speed (extended) mode
Previously, exposure was locked with the first shot in a burst of high-speed continuous shooting. Firmware version 2.0, however, adds support for AE tracking in continuous high-speed (extended) mode, allowing the cameras to track exposure just as it does focus (AF tracking). This ensures that all images captured with a burst of high-speed continuous shooting are not only in focus, but also exhibit optimal exposure, even when the brightness of the scene changes during the burst.
