Though a minor update to Nikon’s magnificent Z 7, the Z 7 II introduces important revisions that enhance performance. By uniting a pair of Expeed 6 image processors together it can shoot continuously at up to 10fps for longer. There’s the option to ouput ProRes raw video via HDMI to an external recorder and the addition of 4K/60p video is well received. The Z 7 missed a trick by only having a single XQD card slot, The Z 7 II addresses this by adding a second SD card slot. The camera can be charged when it’s powered and having the option to select face and eye tracking during video recording video is another advantage.

Let nothing stand between you and the uncompromising execution of your vision. From the small details that tell big stories, to expansive views portrayed in elaborate detail. From intricate portraits to cinematic action. Create freely, knowing you’ll see every detail and capture all you see.
Dual card slots let you use UHS-II SD cards in one slot and XQD or ultra-fast CFexpress cards in the other (see included section for what is provided). Configure the camera to use the cards for overflow or backup – or separate RAW files from JPEGs and stills from video.
The sensitive Hybrid AF system delivers wide, pin-sharp coverage and the camera returns to your selected focus point when it wakes from standby. Exposure metering down to -4 EV is available when shooting with an f/2 (or faster) lens.
Shooting speeds of up to 10 fps allow immense flexibility, while the deeper buffer and dual card slots let you keep shooting without interruption. Catch up to 200 full-res JPEGs, or 77 12-bit uncompressed RAW images, in one burst.
Textures, patterns, colours. The Z 7II delivers incredible dynamic range at both high and low ISO values. Tonal gradations are exceptionally smooth and skin tones are reproduced with stunning accuracy. The ability to shoot video at resolutions up to 4K/60p lets you portray dynamic scenes in mesmerising detail.
Even small subjects can be tracked with precision. You can toggle tracking on and off via the shutter release or assign tracking to a camera or lens Fn button.
Eye-Detection AF locks on to people’s eyes. Animal-Detection AF does the same for cats and dogs. Reliably focus on your subject’s eyes whether shooting stills or video.
Nikon Z is the most advanced optical system Nikon has ever developed. The ultra-wide Z mount, coupled with an ever-expanding range of extraordinary NIKKOR Z lenses, lets you create with light like never before. Every lens, any aperture. Bright is brighter. Depth is deeper. Sharpness is sharper.
The high-definition 3690k-dot electronic viewfinder (EVF) gives you a smooth, uninterrupted view even when shooting at high speed. The high refresh rate greatly reduces blackout, so you’ll never lose sight of what’s in front of you.
Customisable info displays let you quickly adjust settings, or you can choose to disable the info display completely when shooting stills. If you flip out the monitor to shoot in Live View, the EVF automatically turns off to save power.
Creating images with deep depth of field? The Z 7II counters the diffraction that can occur when you stop down a lens. From landscapes to cityscapes, you can shoot at smaller apertures without worrying about loss of definition.
Rough terrain, harsh weather conditions, or on-set fog machines – the Z 7II doesn’t flinch. This mirrorless camera is forged from super-strong yet lightweight magnesium alloy and fully sealed against dust, dirt, and moisture. Go wherever your ideas take you and shoot comfortably when you get there.
The Z 7II works in the most power‑efficient way possible and its new battery gives you more shots per charge. There’s also a power-saving mode for when you need it.
For long shoots, you can provide constant power to your camera (and even charge the battery) via a USB Type-C cable (not included). Ideal if you’re shooting timelapse sequences.
