The Great All-Rounder
The Nikon Z6 mirrorless camera is a full frame multimedia powerhouse that can capture incredible low-light images as well as ultra-sharp 4K video footage. An excellent all-rounder, it’s packed with great features and functionality that makes it a firm favourite with content creators and multimedia professionals.
24.5 Megapixel Full Frame Sensor
Featuring a 24.5 megapixel full frame BSI CMOS sensor, the Z6 delivers detailed images with exceptionally low noise. An ISO100 - ISO51200 is combined with impressive dynamic range to capture crisp, low-noise images with excellent contrast and accurate colour reproduction.
Vibration Reduction Stabilisation
Built-in VR (Vibration Reduction) sensor stabilisation ensures razor sharp details, great for shooting in low light. Delivering an advantage of up to 5-stops, the VR system also works in video mode, delivering more stable footage when filming handheld.
EXPEED Imaging Engine
The cutting edge EXPEED 6 image engine powers the sensor allowing the Z6 to capture full-resolution images at up to 12fps. Perfect for sports photographers, it’s remarkable shooting speed will ensure you’re well equipped to freeze that decisive, split-second moment.
273 Autofocus Points
Complementing its fast frame rate shooting are 273 autofocus points that cover 90% of the frame horizontally and vertically. Practically eliminating the need to find focus them recompose if your subject is towards the edge of the frame, the AF system enables you to concentrate on ensuring your composition is spot on.
Hybrid Phase and Contrast Detect AF
Its hybrid Auto Focus system uses an algorithm optimised for the full frame sensor, to automatically switch between focal-plane phase-detection AF and contrast-detect AF with focusing. The use of NIKKOR Z lenses further maximises AF accuracy with both still images and movies.
Face Detection and Focus Tracking
Intelligent algorithms enhance AF performance. With face detection and tracking functions available, the Z6 ensures critical sharpness when shooting with shallow depth of field lenses or fast-moving subjects.
4K Ultra HD & 120fps FHD Video Recording
Video shooters will appreciate the versatility of 4K Ultra HD resolution and Full HD slow motion at up to 120fps. Cementing itself as a serious video camera, the Z6 also features 10-bit output via HDMI, focus peaking, zebra, Time code and N-Log – a flat colour profile for professional colour grading. Combine the Z6 with a compatible external recorder like the Atomos Ninja V and you can convert in real-time from a 10-bit 4K N-Log clean video output to a HDR signal for more accurate monitoring.
3.6 Million-dot Quad VGA Electronic Viewfinder
Ensure your images are sharp in all lighting conditions thanks to the large 3.6 million dot Quad VGA electronic viewfinder. With an aspherical glass element delivering a natural perspective and improved edge-to-edge detail the viewfinder also doubles as a valuable tool for checking critical focus when shooting wide open. Additionally a fluorine coating which effectively repels dirt has been applied to the eyepiece protection window, ensuring a easy cleaning experience.
3.2-inch Rear Touchscreen
The 3.2-inch rear touchscreen makes image review and video playback simple and straightforward. The touch functionality delivers an intuitive experience for navigating menus. It’s ability to tilt up or down takes the guess work out of shooting from high or low angles, encouraging you to explore different perspectives and push the creative envelope with confidence.
Wi-Fi & Bluetooth Connectivity
Conbined Wi-Fi & Bluetooth Low Energy connectivity allows you to quickly upload high quality photos and videos to your favourite social media platforms. In conjunction with the Nikon Snapbridge app, you can also shoot remotely from your phone or tablet and add GPS location data to your photos automatically.
Weather Sealed with 200k Rated Shutter
Built to withstand the daily punishment of professional work, the body of the Z 6 is weather sealed so you can keep shooting even in the most physically demanding environments. With a shutter rated to 200,000 actuations, the camera can more than hold its own against the busy schedule of any seasoned shooter.
