    Another reason to go with Nikon!

    I have to admit, I was nervous about going mirrorless. I was looking at this and the D750. I read mixed stuff about jumping into Nikon’s mirrorless line since it was so young, but I’m so glad I did. It has so many features! The workability is very similar to the DSLR too, contrary to what I had heard. One of my favorite things that I didn’t know about was that it will automatically change modes for the type of sensor your lens is for (FX or DX). I also love that the viewfinder or live view will adjust to your eye as you change settings (e.g., if you increase shutter speed, the image you see get darker to give you a better idea of what your image will look like). It also works very well in low light. I used it on 20,000 iso and it was way better than my D5300 on like 6400. Negative: It uses an XQD card - they’re expensive. But, it will hold more on smaller GB. I have a 64 and it will hold over 1,000 pics. PS: the turtle images are pictures off my desktop.

    I expect the electronic viewfinder with the histogram will really help me take my photography to the next level. I also like the compact size, and that I can use the Nikon glass I already own with the FTZ. This is my 5th and favorite Nikon.

    Excellent Low Light Performance, Good all around

    Posted .
    Owned for 1 month when reviewed.

    Bought this camera for better astronomical (low light) performance, and haven't been disappointed. It can function as a 'point and shoot' or allows lots of control flexibility for tweaking shots. The mirrorless design works much better than I expected. The digital view finder looks like an optical finder on DSLRs, but the camera is more compact and lighter than an equivalent DSLR. The mechanical shutter can be turned off in favor of a virtually-silent electronic shutter. Get the adapter to allow use of older Nikon lenses with this camera (Nikon has a big discount for this when purchased with the camera as of 8/2020).

    Worth the wait! Excellent!

    Posted .

    I was trying to decide between the Canon EOS R, Nikon Z7 and the Nikon Z6. I am glad I got the Z6! I bought it with the package lens. Trust me, you will not regret it! I currently have Nikon D7500 and now I have to sell it! Do not be deceived by the megapixels, the price that Canon EOS R and Nikon Z7 are offering. Z6 is a bad boy! takes really sharp pictures from low light, to slow mo, to continous shots, bokeh and much more. Take it for a test drive !

    Glad I Upgraded To The Z6!

    Posted .

    Having been away from camera based photography as opposed to using a cellphone for a long time and needing to upgrade to help get my business going, i purchased based on everything i had read, plus talking to persons i knew who were knowledgeable on the subject, a C...n T7i. Nice camera for sure. After noticing the deals that were being offered on the Nikon Z6 plus lenses, accessories, etc... i took a chance and have not looked back! From the 1st press of the shutter, it was wow!!! An excellent asset, very well made, no issues whatsoever, i highly recommend it.

    It’s an OK camera for some types of photography. there is a lag in the electronic viewfinder. it doesn’t seem to focus as sharp as I like . That eye focus seems to work OK but the battery seems to run down quicker. I exchanged this camera for the D850.

    Great Full Frame Mirrorless

    |
    Posted .

    I actually drove about an hour each way to see this camera in person and try it out (since these are difficult to find in stores). I actually was looking at it as a essentially a sanity check, because I was strongly leaning toward the D750 instead of this camera. One of my main concerns about switching to mirrorless was, of course, EVFs vs OVFs. I will say this - the EVF on most modern mirrorless cameras is excellent, but what Nikon has done with the Z series OLED EVF is a step above. In certain very low light situations, an OVF is probably a little bit better, but overall, I now prefer the EVF. The exposure preview is excellent (although this is true on just about any mirrorless). The main advantage to this camera over other mirrorless cameras is usability and ergonomics. This camera has an excellent user interface and the ergonomics are superb. It feels great to hold. Not all is perfect about this camera. Many reviewers complained that the camera only has one card slot. This is a valid concern, but it is not insurmountable. For photographers that need redundancy, the camera has WiFi built-in, and can automatically transfer files to a computer over that WiFi connection. It isn't perfect and I certainly would prefer two card slots, but for me at least, it isn't a dealbreaker. This camera does use XQD instead of SD cards. Some users have complained about the switch because XQD is much more expensive than SD. This is true - XQD cards are expensive. However, I'm very happy with the switch - 14-bit uncompressed RAW files out of this camera get close to 50MB. The data transfer speed of XQD is much, much faster than SD, and this is the kind of camera that needs it. Nikon says CFExpress support is coming soon in a firmware update, so I would probably buy as few cards as you need (along with a card reader) and wait for the even faster CFExpress. For now though, I'm really impressed with XQD compared to SD - I think it is worth the significant price bump. Some might like the touchscreen, and I've found it useful in a few instances. However, I've also accidently taken pictures I didn't want to with the touchscreen. I generally find the buttons easier, but the touchscreen is there if I want to use it. Battery life is not a good as many DSLRs, but that is the nature of mirrorless. A second battery is probably a good idea with this camera (although it was also a good idea with DSLRs). Technically, the camera handles high ISO very well, but eventually, if ISO is high enough, of course images won't be usable. The included 24-70 f/4.0 S lens is extremely sharp at every aperture. Of course, many photographers will find the f/2.8 version of that lens to be more suitable for their work. Many reviewers (and even Nikon themselves) have compared the Z6 to the D750, and the Z7 to the D850. I would argue that these comparisons are somewhat inaccurate - the only things that are really similar between the cameras are the resolutions. Essentially, the Z6 is really just a lower resolution Z7 (and fewer autofocus points). Everything else is basically identical (with the Z6 actually being higher performance on a few specs). For example, the Z6 and Z7 both have built-in focus stacking features. On the DSLRs, the D850 has that feature, not the D750. So in some ways, other than resolution, the Z6 is closer to the D850 than the D750. Overall, this is a great camera. Is it perfect? No. But it was the only camera that 'wowed' me enough to get me to switch to mirrorless. For that, in my opinion, Nikon has a winner.

    Nikon Mirrorless is better than you've probably he

    |
    Posted .

    Nikon took a while to get into the mirrorless full frame camera market, but the result is an unmistakably Nikon Camera. If you are a Nikon lover that has been waiting to make the jump, but see that the future is mirrorless, this is a solid camera. I came from a D750. I tried a GH5 because of outstanding video and people were talking about how much smaller and lighter M43 was. The truth is, if you MATCH the glass, you do not save much of anything. A D750 with an 85F1.8 compared to the GH5 with a 42.5 F1.2 (35mm equivalent to 85mm with F2.4 DOF) was within one battery of weight, and you needed the extra battery on the GH5. I went through a Sony A7RII and A7III. One, Sony lenses are expensive and heavy. I also didn't like the menu system. I thought it was far to much trouble to just manually focus when the camera and I disagreed on the subject. Finally there are the options for saving images. The latest firmware on A7III give us 1. Uncompressed Raw (giant files). 2. Jpegs (except for certain use cases, why spend this kind of money to shoot cell phone images), and 3. Compressed RAW - but it is a LOSSY compression. Why would anyone want that? The Z6 is a Nikon. It gives a Dynamic range that matches or exceeds the D750. You get a stabilized sensor to help with slow shutter or video. The firmware in May will bring eye tracking AF, but the current subject tracking isn't bad at all. The pictures coming out of the camera look good, even at higher ISO. The battery life could be better, but if you don't leave wifi on and work reasonable, a single battery will last a LOT longer that 330 shots. I have been able to go all day on one battery. Memory card slots. Yes, this camera has only one XQD/CF Express slot ( and yes, they are expensive). They are quite reliable. I didn't have trouble with SD cards as far as it goes, but these are even better. One slot is good enough for Aria, and they are FAR more expensive than this. Your mileage may vary, but it was never an issue for me. I WISH there were two, but I can easily leave with one. I also really like the display on top for things you see on the other Nikons. It boots up and take pictures faster than the Sony, especially after a batter swap. The A7III could take a good 15 seconds if the batter was changed. 1.2-1.5 on the Nikon. The FTZ adaptor gets all the old F mount glass work so you can patiently wait for your favorites, but the 24-70F4 is probably the best kit lens in the history of kit lenses. It is a cut WELL above what you usually see.

    I'm a professional photographer. Have been since '84. I've used Leica, Nikon, Canon, Pentax, Contax, Hasselblad, Rollei, and even 4x5 Sinars and Linhofs. I have been waiting for mirrorless to be taken seriously by the big two (Nikon and Canon), or was going to go Sony. Now I know which way to go. This is a fantastic camera. The image quality is phenomenal. Video too. The kit lens that came with it, the 24-70 f4 Nikkor S, is amazing. Matched with this camera or the Z7 from Nikon, it's a stunning performer. As good as anything I've used, zoom-wise, and even better than most prime lenses I've used in the past. The camera takes some study and getting used to. It's definitely not point and shoot. But with practice and study, it becomes an extension of you with very easy to use menus. Way better than the competition. And it has much better weather sealing than the Sony mirrorless cameras. It is now my favorite camera. I'm selling everything else.

    Pleasantly surprised, my first mirrorless.

    My D850 went in for repairs, so I finally jumped on getting a backup camera and decided to go in the mirrorless direction as I hope to start recording more video and prep for the future of photography. The electronic viewfinder was, and is, taking some time to get use too but it has its advantages. Being able to watch your setting changes happen in real time in the viewfinder is pretty handy but there's still a latency video feel to watching your subject through the camera. I'm slowly getting use to this change and predict it will all be an afterthought in the near future. The menu setup is amazingly customizable and pretty fun to go through. The button placement is very similar to my D850, so switching over was pretty seamless. I'm not so concerned with the single memory card slot, so I can say if this is a major issue for you, wait for the Z6s or Z7s that should be out later this year, or look at the Z5 due out later this month. I have fairly large hands, so my fear was not being able to hold this camera in a usable fashion but that also hasn't been an issue. The depth is a lot smaller so getting to a few buttons took a minute to figure out. It's extremely light, almost comically so, but built well. It doesn't feel cheaply made at all. It takes beautiful photos. I wish more long range Z lenses were available right now, but the future looks good with the lens road map. I use it with the FTZ adapter and 500mm f5.6 (whole rig weighs nothing) and as seems to be the issue with mirrorless, the AF is a little slow (I also know some of this is because of a slow lens). When used with the 24-70mm f4 "Z" lens, it's a whole lot faster, obviously, so I am really waiting for those Z lenses to come out to really utilize this camera body to its potential. I've only taken a few videos so far, so I don't have too much to say in that area but I can honestly say that the AF control and settings are far superior to my use of a DSLR for video. All this being said, I am finding myself using this Z6 with the 500mm f5.6 PF lens almost all the time. I photograph birds/wildlife and realize that with trying to catch moving birds, I will have to resort back to my D850 as it's the better tool for that job. For almost everything else, I'm really loving this camera and can't wait to see what the future Nikon Z cameras can do to progress what seems to be the future of photography.

    Nikon Z6 ticks all the boxes for me

    |
    Posted .

    I've tried several brands of cameras and have come back to Nikon more than once. The Z6, along with the Z7, are their first serious mirrorless cameras and they have made a pretty decent entry into the competitive market. This is my first full frame, which may add something extra to my satisfaction with the camera. Low light is no problem, and going to higher ISO ranges with less noise than I am used to has been a really valuable benefit. I find focusing, including low light, is not an issue with the 24-70 kit lens as well as the 50mm. I haven't done any serious action/sports but I believe it will take care of my needs, though I am not a professional by any means. It's just a fun camera to use.

    I bought this to replace my Nikon D750 (which is a great camera) as a back up to my Nikon D850. So far, this camera has been awesome. It is lightweight but a heavy hitter. There is a small learning curve coming from full frame DSLR, but I have had mirrorless cameras in the past. The feel of the Z 6 is great. It is small but holding it is very comfortable. In comparing with the Sony mirrorless systems, the ergonomics of the Z series is way better, IMO. And, the lens.... I wasn't sure about the 24-70mm @f4. I usually like faster lenses. But, this lens is great. I would still like a bit faster and might upgrade at some point to the 2.8 version but I am in no rush. This lens is great.

    I would recommend this to a friend
