Bring your ideas into the light. When you have a fast full-frame sensor to shoot with you have the power to make your mark.
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.
Z mount. More light. More possibilities.
- With the world’s widest full-frame lens mount, the agile Z 6 mirrorless camera can capture light as never before. ¹
- 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.
- 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.
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.
Full frame. Full vision.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- The in-camera five-axis optical VR lets you shoot at shutter speeds up to five stops slower than otherwise possible. ² Shoot clearer photos as daylight fades or film scenes without the unwanted effects of camera shake.
If you can see it – you can catch it
- Compose freely. Nikon’s advanced 3686k-dot electronic viewfinder keeps the view smooth. The ultra-bright, ultra-sharp EVF doesn’t leave anything out of the frame.
- 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.
Shoot every scene in exquisite detail with full-frame 4K video.
- 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.
On location or in the editing suite – find your flow.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
One adapter. Endless inspiration.
With the Mount Adapter FTZ attached to your Z 6 camera, 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.
