There have been a few issues reported with the Nikon Z7’s video capabilities. Talk of banding and pixelation that come as a result of how the Nikon Z7 captures full frame 4K. DPReview has just posted the below test footage, though, shot with the Nikon Z6 and it shows that it’s a very different animal, getting much closer to the Sony A7III in terms of quality.
One of the big features in the new Nikon Z6 and Z7 cameras is their ability to output 10Bit video through the HDMI port for use with external recorders. But we haven’t seen too many samples of video shot this way. Dreaming is a short film by filmmaker Marin Marinov shot using a Nikon Z6 prototype.
August and September have been pretty exciting as far as gear announcements go. Nikon Z7 and Z6 are out, along with the lenses and adapter. Canon’s full-frame-mirrorless system has also been launched, and Fujifilm X-T3 is out, too. Many photographers are thinking whether to switch systems or gear brands, and it’s a kind of a big decision to make. In this video, Mark Denney discusses three very important things to consider before you make the final decision. Because, when you take everything into consideration – you may not need to buy the new gear after all.
If you want a Nikon Z7, but are concerned about it only having one card slot, here’s another option for you. This one has zero card slots, and there’s no waiting list!

You may love or hate the features of the new Nikon Z7, but it seems that many photographers want to get their hands on it as soon as possible. As a result, the company has received so many preorders, that it recently issued an apology to customers that the camera is selling so fast. Because of so many preorders, many photographers won’t be able to get their camera on 27 September, when it was supposed to start shipping.
Last week, I went out on a limb and pre-ordered the 24 megapixel Nikon Z6, which should ship on November 30. It is a bit of a flyer, but assuming my instincts are correct, the camera will replace my second body, the Nikon D750.
Currently, I have two cameras, one a Nikon D810 and the other a D750. They are my first and second bodies respectively. I use the D810 almost exclusively for jobs, and the D750 serves as a second backup body in case of failure, and a personal project camera, too. I intend to upgrade both cameras over the next year and a half, and I definitely want to move towards mirrorless.
The entire day of 23 August has been marked by the Nikon’s new mirrorless cameras and lenses. My teammate John and I call it “Nikon Mirrorless Day” and I must admit I feel a little festive. As the Nikon mirrorless system has been announced, the hands-on videos have started to emerge as well. We bring you a round-up of hands-on videos that have been published so far, so you can get an impression of the new Nikon Z system.
It wasn’t much of a surprise that Nikon would announce new lenses to go along with the new Z6 & Z7 mirrorless cameras. Even if there hadn’t been plenty of rumours about new glass, it was pretty much a given. So, we have the new Nikkor Z 35mm f/1.8 S, Nikkor Z 50mm f/1.8 S and Nikkor Z 24-70mm f/4 S lenses. But we also have a new FTZ lens mount adapter that looks pretty interesting.
It’s felt like forever ago since we first heard word that Nikon was finally developing a full frame mirrorless camera. And after months of speculation, rumour and leaks, it’s finally official. Today, Nikon has released the new Z mirrorless series with two Z6 & Z7 cameras, three new 35mm f/1.8, 50mm f/1.8 & 24-70mm f/4 lenses, and an FTZ lens mount adapter.
It’s not much of a surprise, given that tomorrow’s supposed to be the official announcement, but now we’re seeing more Nikon Z6/7 leaks. This time it’s a photo of one in the real world, and something of a specs list, along with a price for the Z7 (no word on the Z6 yet).
