The Z6 II takes Nikon’s sensational 24MP full-frame all-rounder to the next level. It introduces the updates photographers and videographers had been hoping for, namely a second card slot to enable crucial back up while shooting, 4K/60p video recording (available in February 2021 via a firmware update) and support of a dedicated battery grip (MB-N11) that replicates controls in the portrait format and accepts two batteries to enhance stamina. Face and eye tracking is made available during video recording and by incorporating not one but two Expeed 6 processors, it can shoot 125 raw files or 200 JPEGs at up to 14fps, which is 2fps faster than the original Z 6.

Whether you’re a photographer who shoots video, a videographer who captures stills, or mixed media is your thing. Whether you collaborate or work alone. Whether it’s high-speed action or captivating stillness. Cinematic 4K or on-the-spot interviews. Whatever you create with the light, this camera keeps up.
This camera’s incredible light-gathering capabilities free you to create in any light. You get clean, full-frame images across the ultra-wide ISO range when shooting stills, and clean output when shooting video. Low-light AF now works down to -6 EV with an f/2 (or faster) lens—you’ll find focus even under the quarter-moon light.
The ultra-wide Hybrid AF system offers spot-on subject acquisition. You can shoot up to 14 fps at full resolution with full autofocus and auto exposure. When speed matters—and it always matters—you’ll catch the shots others might miss.
Whatever you do with the light, do it faster and more fluidly. Twin EXPEED processors double the power at your disposal for everything from AF to buffer capacity. Performance is smooth as silk, whether filming or shooting stills.
The faster, high-performance buffer lets you shoot up to 200 JPEGs or 124 12-bit uncompressed RAW images in one burst. The high refresh rate means you won’t miss a second, and the dual EXPEED engines ensure lightning-fast write speeds.
With two memory card slots at your disposal, you have room to adapt to any workflow. Separate stills from movies, or RAW from JPEG. Copy files between cards. Configure slots for overflow and backup. You can use UHS-II SD cards in one slot, and XQD cards or the latest ultra-fast CFexpress cards in the other.
Shooting interviews? You can run the camera via a USB Type-C cable, and even charge the battery while shooting. Even on a long shoot, this camera keeps up.
Maximum control in post. Faster transfer rates. The Z 6II lets you connect to a compatible ATOMOS external recorder to export video as ProRes RAW®, which preserves all the data from the camera’s full-frame sensor in smaller files.
Gain more flexibility when colour grading. Recording video at a high 10-bit depth retrieves billions more colours than standard 8-bit recording. With the Z 6II you can record 10-bit output directly to an external recorder via HDMI.
Remove the need for time-consuming colour grading and shoot video footage ready for immediate playback on HDR displays. The camera’s HLG shooting formats preserve more detail, dynamic range and contrast—no post processing required.
Pound those dusty streets. Brave those mountain paths. Shoot down at the water’s edge. With a super-strong, lightweight magnesium-alloy frame, the Z 6II is easy to carry and tough enough to handle any location. Fully sealed against dust, dirt, and moisture, it will go wherever inspiration takes you.
