Nikon Z7 Full-Frame Mirrorless Camera Preview + Showcase!

Nikon Z7 Full-Frame Mirrorless Camera Preview + Showcase!

After years of development, Nikon finally launched their first-ever full-frame mirrorless camera – the Nikon Z7. In our preview, we will take a close look at the Nikon Z7, and the special Nikon Z7 and NIKKOR Z lens showcase!

 

The Nikon Z7 Full-Frame Mirrorless Camera

The Nikon Z7 is built around a full-frame FX-format BSI CMOS sensor with 45.7 megapixels, and a sensitivity range of ISO 64-25,600. It also boasts the latest EXPEED 6 processor. Let’s take a closer look at the Nikon Z7, and its key features!

New BSI CMOS Sensor

The Nikon Z7 features a new backside illumination (BSI) CMOS sensor with built-in focal-plane phase-detection autofocus pixels. This BSI CMOS sensor has an effective pixel rate of 45.7 megapixels, and supports a sensitivity range of ISO 64-25,600, although it can be adjusted to ISO 32-102,400.

Hybrid AF System

The Nikon Z7 has 493 focus points, covering about 90% of the imaging area both horizontally and vertically. Its hybrid AF system uses an FX-optimised algorithm to automatically switch between focal-plane phase detection AF, and contrast-detect AF with focusing.

Full-Frame Electronic Viewfinder

The electronic viewfinder used in the Nikon Z7 has a 3,960K dot OLED panel, and covers approximately 100% of the frame with a 0.8X magnification. It also boasts a fluorine coat to repel dirt and oil.

Professional Video Recording Features

The Nikon Z7 supports recording of 4K videos at 30 fps, and 1080p videos at up to 120 fps. It also supports 4K video recording with a full-pixel readout using the DX movies format.

Active D-Lighting, electronic image stabilisation, and focus peaking can be used with both 4K and 1080p video recording. Nikon’s N-log can also be used with 10-bit HDMI output.

First In-Body Image Stabilisation

The Nikon Z7 comes with Nikon’s first in-body image stabilisation that compensates for movement in five axes. The vibration reduction is equivalent to a shutter speed increase of approximately 5 stops.

Other Key Features

  • Same level of strength and durability, as well as dust- and drip- resistance, as the Nikon D850
  • A 8-cm / 2-in. touch-sensitive LCD monitor with 2100k-dots, with a tilting mechanism
  • Silent photography eliminates shake and noise caused by shutter release
  • Peaking stack image function enables confirmation of focus depth after shooting using focus shift
  • High-speed continuous shooting (extended) at approximately 9 fps
  • Interval timer photography that makes 8K time-lapse movie creation possible
  • An extended low-light metering range allows users to easily capture scenes such as the transition from sunset to starry night sky, using aperture-priority auto mode
  • Built-in Wi-Fi  for direct connection to a smart device using SnapBridge, or the transfer of images and movies to a computer
  • Support for existing digital SLR camera accessories such as the WT-7A/B/C Wireless Transmitter (available separately) for transferring images and movies at high speed over a wired or wireless LAN, and radio-controlled Advanced Wireless Lighting, which makes flexible multi-flash photography possible

The Official Nikon Z7 + Nikon Z6 Tech Briefing + Showcase!

Nikon today officially unveiled the Nikon Z7 and Nikon Z6 – their first-ever full-frame mirrorless cameras, as well as the new line of NIKKOR Z lenses.

Here is the official Nikon Z7 and Nikon Z6 tech briefing, as well as a photo showcase by celebrity photographer Keda Z, and a Nikon Z7 and NIKKOR Z lens showcase!

 

The Official Nikon Z7 + Nikon Z6 Tech Briefing

Albert Yap, Assistant Manager of International Customer Support, Nikon Singapore, gave the tech briefing on the new Nikon Z7 and Nikon Z6 cameras, as well as the new NIKKOR Z lenses.

The Nikon Z7 and Nikon Z6 cameras are based on the new Nikon Z Mount. The Z Mount has a 55 mm diameter, with a very short 16 mm flange focal distance. This allows Nikon to fit a full-frame FX-format sensor into a very thin form factor.

The Nikon Z7 is designed for large format photography, boasting a 45.7 MP sensor with 493 AF points. It has an expanded ISO range of 64 to 25,600, and can take burst shots of up to 9 frames per second.

The Nikon Z6, on the other hand, is designed for high-speed and/or low-light photography. It has a 24.5 MP sensor with just 273 AF points, but a wider ISO range of 100 to 51,200. It can take burst shots of up to 12 frames per second.

Both cameras will support all existing F-mount lenses, using the new Nikon FTZ mount adaptor, with full capabilities intact. FTZ, incidentally, stands for F To Z or F-mount To Z-mount.

These new Nikon full-frame mirrorless cameras also introduce new in-body 5-axis image stabilisation, whose performance Nikon says is equivalent to 5 stops of shutter speed.

They also now support full-frame recording of 4K video at 30 frames per second, and 1080p videos at up to 120 frames per second. Professional videographers will love its support for an external recorder, and 10-bit N-Log (4:2:2) gamma recording.

NIKKOR Z S-Line Lenses

The Nikon Z mount will have a new range of NIKKOR Z lenses. They feature a Control Ring, which can be programmed for different purposes, instead of just for manual focus. These are S-Line lenses, which means they are higher-quality lenses with a Nano Crystal Coat and a stepping motor for smoother and quieter operation.

Here is a list of new NIKKOR Z lenses coming up. They are all S-Line lenses.
