The Nikon Z6 is one of two mirrorless full-frame cameras that Nikon introduced in August 2018. It is very similar to its big brother Z7, with the main differences to the sensor (24 MP vs. 46 MP) and the associated resolution. , The Z6 also features automatic focus points (273 vs. 493) with low phase detection thanks to a low-resolution sensor. Otherwise, you’ll get the same ruggedized enclosure, the same (usually) known controls, and the Z-mount lenses in a small collection that you’ll soon be able to access.
Apart from the specifications, the Z6 is aimed at a very different audience than the Z7. The latter is intended for those looking for ultra-high resolution and is also considered for cameras like Sony A7R III and Nikon D850. On the other hand, the Z6 is more interesting for those looking to upgrade to crop sensor cameras or full-frame digital full-frame SLR cameras.
The Z6 finally becomes comparable to its D750 digital SLR (which is growing, but still very powerful). Although both devices have different designs, they work similarly, with the main differences being in autofocus and video modes.
- 24.5MP Full Frame BSI CMOS Sensor
- Hybrid autofocus system with 273 phase detection points
- Continuous shooting up to 12 frames per second (Raw + JPEG)
- 3.69M OLED viewfinder point
- 2.1M LCD dot with tilt angle
- OLED display cover plate
- Single XQD card slot
- UHD 4K Capture up to 30p
- 10-bit 4: 2: 2 N-Log output via HDMI
- 8-bit H.264 internal video capture with up to 100 Mbps H.264
- SnapBridge Wi-Fi system with Bluetooth
If you are familiar with these specifications, it is because they are almost identical to those of the Z7, with the resolution and number of AF points being the main differences.
You can take advantage of the lower-resolution sensor when recording continuously, with a maximum frame rate of 12 frames per second (vs. 9) and the ability to take more shots per series. Otherwise, you get the same design and innovations as the big brother of the Z6, which is considerably more expensive.
The Z6 will be sold at a price of only $ 1999 or the Nikkor Z 24-70mm F4 S lens priced at $ 2599. If you buy the $ 249 (F-to-Z) adapter at the same time, Nikon saves $ 100 for the price.
