Nikon Z6 Mirrorless Digital Camera Body

Nikon has just revolutionized mirrorless cameras. The amazing new Z series is here to usher in the new age of high-performance mirrorless imaging systems. The Nikon Z6 is an all around amazing camera giving you all around amazing performance. Boasting an impressive 24.5MP BSI FX-Format image sensor along with Nikon’s signature EXPEED 6 processor, this mirrorless digital camera is a fantastic leader in modern full-frame imaging. Nikon understands that more light means more detail, which is why they have packed this camera capable of an ISO 100-51200 so that you can bring your vision to life. Ultra HD 4K video recording at 30fps create a portable cinematic powerhouse.

Incredible Imaging

The Nikon Z6 is one of the most adaptable mirrorless cameras around. The 24.5MP BSI FX-Format illuminated CMOS sensor creates more opportunities for incredible image quality by bringing in more light and capturing more detail. The EXPEED 6 image-processing engine works in perfect partnership with the image sensor to increase sharpness, minimize noise, and help your camera achieve a maximum standard sensitivity of ISO 51,200. Continuous shooting up to 12 fps at full resolution give you the power and speed for any situation. The 55mm full frame mount that is 17% larger than the Nikon F Mount and wider than any other full-frame mount available. The Z6 was designed to enhance low-light performance and provide even illumination from corner to corner and edge to edge.

Fantastic Focus

The Nikon Z6 has a 273 on-sensor autofocus system that covers up to 90% of the frame. An intuitive AF algorithm has been optimized for the Z6’s FX-format sensor so that the camera switches between focal-plane phase-detect AF and contrast-detect AF in order to fine-tune your focus and give you the best image every time. With smart subject tracking, you will be able to smoothly track your subject’s face among the crowd thanks to the Auto Area AF.

Made for Movies

You will be a cinematic icon once you control the video recording capabilities of the Nikon Z 6. Capable of capturing Ultra HD 4K video in a 16:9 aspect ratio at 30p by utilizing the width and resolution of the amazing backside-illuminated image sensor, this camera can achieve an equivalent of 5K video when using DX Mode. The Z6 mirrorless camera is finally bringing you 4K as it was always meant to be.

Tilting Touchscreen and EVF

Complete control and smooth operation define the Z6’s 2.1 million-dot 3.2 inch tilting touchscreen display. Find your view like never before thanks to the new 3.6 M-Dot Quad VGA viewfinder. With the feel of an optical viewfinder yet the power that only an electronic viewfinder can provide, you will be able to customize your settings, preview exposures, review photos and more.

Tough and Durable

Don’t let all of the Z6 mirrorless camera’s features fool you; this is an incredibly lightweight yet ultra-strong body built out of a magnesium alloy. A deep grip design gives it a balanced weight with great feel along with comfortably placed button control. Powerful in-body 5-axis VR image stabilization gives you up to five stops of image stabilization in up to five directions—yaw, pitch, roll, X and Y. With extensive weather sealing, you’ll never about dust or moisture as you take this camera right into the tick of the action no matter the weather.

Connected Like Never Before

Stay connected to the cloud with the Z 6’s built-in WiFi and Bluetooth Low Energy connectivity. Connect to the Nikon SnapBridge smartphone app for remote shooting and simple sate transfer. You can wirelessly transfer image 2x faster than before and never have a need to plug-in thanks to the improved WiFi speeds of this mirrorless camera.
