Nikon Z 6 Full Frame Mirrorless Camera

Nikon's First Full-Frame Mirrorless Camera

Nikon's long-awaited launch into the full-frame mirrorless market has been seen as setting the benchmark for the future of Photography. With the introduction of the new Nikon Z-NIKKOR mount, Nikon say they are putting in the groundwork for the next 100 years.

The Nikon Z6 has the specification to rival professional level Digital SLRs (DSLRs) on the market, but with the benefits of mirrorless – smaller, with incredible autofocus and the capacity to shoot & process at frame rates that a DSLR would struggle to match.

The camera body is noticeably smaller and lighter than a DSLR with equivalent specification. Nikon have focused on making it comfortable to hold - with a deep grip and textured front. The rear of the camera has controls that are easily accessible (with custom functions to allow for personalisation), with the option to use either the high resolution 3.6m dot Eye View Finder or the tilt and touchscreen 3.2" LCD screen.

Nikon's New Z-Nikkor Mount

Nikon have looked to the future with their new Z-NIKKOR mount. Wider than the F Mount used on Nikon's DSLR system, it has been designed to be compatible with lenses that have an aperture of f/0.95.

This shows that Nikon intend for their mirrorless full-frame system to be a market leader when it comes to low light performance – as critical to video performance as it is for shooting stills in low-light conditions.

The good news for Nikon DSLR users is that there is a mount adapter available for the current range of F Mount lenses. This enables a transition period of using a whole range of existing lenses that are not yet available with the new Z-NIKKOR mount.

And of course, it ensures that the booming second-hand market is available to mirrorless users – so if you require an ultra-wide-angle, macro or telephoto lens, you have these available straight from launch.   

So Fast It Blurs The Lines Between Stills And Video

The New improved eXpeed 6 processing engine takes its heritage from the Nikon D5 – it's inherently designed to deal with shooting at fast frame rates - absorbing the associated buffering without reducing the camera's ability to be ready for the next shot.

The Z6 can shoot at an incredible rate of 12fps – perfect for freeze-framing action when shooting in burst mode. 

The video features look to distinguish this camera – 4K UHD with N Log, Time Code, 10 BIT HDMI and a colour bit depth of 8:2:2 will get video buffs sitting on the edge of their seat. There is also Focus Peaking on 4K video, and the option of extracting stills at 8K.
