Nikon Z6 & Z7 officially released

The Nikon Z6 and Z7 mirrorless cameras are now officially announced.

The Nikon US site has a good comparsion of the two cameras!
The main difference:

  • 45.7 MP on the Z7 vs 24.5 MP on the Z6
  • 493 MP on the Z7 vs 273 on the Z6
  • 9 FPS on the Z7 vs 12 on the Z6
  • Z7 offers 8k timelapse (up to 9’999 images)

Both have:

  • EXPEED 6 (one version higher than the D850)
  • 4K Ultra HD
  • 10-bit N-Log HDMI Output
  • 1080 120p slow motion
  • Hybrid AF in video mode
  • 90% auto focus coverage
  • Tiltable touchscreen
  • Rugged Magnesium Alloy material for the body and weather sealing
  • PDAF (Phase Detection Auto Focus)
  • One major drawback for many: There is only 1 card slot and this is an XQD (expansive, but Nikon will offer its own ones; no use for old cards / cardreaders and no chance for an in camera backup => not what a wedding photographer wants)

The IBIS (In Body Image Stabilisation) should offer 5 stops of image stabilization (CIPA standards when used with the new 24-70mm at 70mm) or up to 3 stops with Nikon F lenses. Nikon states also: ” Additional electronic VR (e-VR) can be combined during video capture.” but there is no word if Nikon F lenses with VR can use the lens VR.
