After a long wait and months of rumors and speculations, Nikon finally launches its Z series Full Frame Mirrorless cameras along with 3 Z mount lenses and a adapter for older Nikkor F lenses. In an Event today Nikon Announces Full-Frame Mirrorless Camera Z6 and Z7 With Z Mount Lenses.
“We have been refining our optical technologies for over 100 years,” Nikon stated at its global launch event. The Z Series features a brand new lens mount that’s designed to “redefine possibilities” and elevate optical performance for Nikon over the coming decades.
“This is the new light that Nikon will use to pioneer the future,” Nikon says. “It is indeed mirrorless reinvented.”
Nikon Announces Full-Frame Mirrorless Camera Z6 and Z7 :
The new Nikon Z7 is Nikon’s flagship full-frame mirrorless camera, featuring high-resolution photography and “revolutionary” autofocus. The camera features a 45.7-megapixel backside-illuminated full-frame CMOS sensor with a native ISO of 64-25,600. It has an EXPEED 6 image processor that supports 9fps continuous shooting. The Z7 packs a groundbreaking autofocus system that boasts a whopping 493 AF points that cover 90% of the viewfinder area.
The new Nikon Z6 is designed to be an all-around, high-speed, low-light camera. It features a backside-illuminated 24.5-megapixel full-frame sensor with a native ISO range of 100-51200. Backed by an EXPEED 6 image processor, the Z6 can do 12fps continuous shooting. There’s a 273-point on-sensor phase-detect autofocus system.
Both, the Z7 and the Z6 can record 4K UHD (3840 x 2160) at up to 30fps and Full HD (1920×1080) at up to 120fps. 4K UHD movies support full pixel readout. Additionally, both cameras support focus peaking, timecode, and Active D-Lighting. Nikon also offers a new flat gamma curve color profile called N-Log which can be used with 10-bit HDMI output. With N-Log, Nikon claims, the cameras can achieve 12-stops of dynamic range. It also feature durable, dust- and drip-resistant builds and a large, firm grip for secure and comfortable holding.
New Z Mount Lenses:
The Z mount uses a large 55mm inner diameter and a 16mm flange focal distance that allow for apertures as fast as f/0.95 and a slim body design. It also opens the door to other lens properties that weren’t previously possible with Nikon’s F mount.
The new Z 7 and Z 6 are launching with three new lenses – the Nikkor Z 24-70 F4 S, Nikkor Z 50mm F1.8 S, and Nikkor Z 35mm F1.8 S, alongside an FTZ adapter for Nikon’s legacy F-mount lenses and a fourth native prime – the Nikkor 58mm F0.95 Noct – in development. Let’s take a closer look.
