All-around performance.
All-around amazing.

Adaptability. It’s about remaining fluid, open. Preparing for nothing, but being ready for anything. Thriving in whatever situation comes along. The Z 6 is perhaps the most adaptable camera we’ve ever created. It’s at the sweet spot of speed, resolution and low-light performance. All combined with the advantages of a lightweight mirrorless design, a revolutionary new full-frame lens mount with matched lenses and seamless integration with Nikon’s DSLR system—including the F-Mount NIKKOR lenses you love. This is mirrorless versatility as only Nikon could create.


273-POINT ON-SENSOR PDAF
The points of the story.
273* on-sensor AF points cover 90% of the frame (approx.) horizontally and vertically. Subjects are acquired quickly when they enter the frame and tracked throughout the frame, even to the far edges.
*231 on-sensor PDAF points used for video In FX-based movie format with single-point AF.

NEW HYBRID AUTOFOCUS
The best of both worlds.
Using an AF algorithm optimized for its FX-format sensor, Z 6 automatically switches between focal-plane phase-detect AF and contrast-detect AF to fine-tune focus. The light-shielding phase detection pixels are carefully arranged on the sensor to preserve light, ensuring accurate AF even in dim lighting.

NEW SUBJECT TRACKING
Follow a face in the crowd.
Whether shooting eye-level with the EVF or in Live View with the LCD, Auto Area AF smoothly tracks your subject’s face—even when it’s one among many. The system pays attention to the upper body, too, maintaining focus position when your subject briefly turns away from the camera or moves out of view.

PURE VIEWING EXPERIENCE
Just like the real thing.

NEW 3.6M-DOT QUAD VGA VIEWFINDER
Oh, what a view.
Take an ultra-high resolution QUAD VGA display, add Nikon optics for magnification, including Aspherical lens elements and Fluorine coating, and you’ve got an EVF experience unlike any before it. Minimal lag and blackout, 100% frame coverage (approx.), corner-to-corner clarity and sharp magnification. It has the feel of an optical viewfinder, and you can use it for both stills and videos.

NEW ICON-DRIVEN INFO DISPLAY
Keep your eye on the prize.
All relevant info is displayed out of the way and is easy on the eyes. A new customizable menu appears right inside the viewfinder, so you can quickly adjust settings without ever taking your eye off the shot. Focus modes, white balance, exposure, VR settings, Picture Controls, and more—all within eye’s reach. Preview exposure and white balance changes, image stabilization and depth-of-field in real time. You can even review the photo or video you just shot.

IN-BODY VR IMAGE STABILIZATION
Steady as it goes.

UP TO 5 STOPS OF VR IMAGE STABILIZATION
Rock steady. Tack sharp.
Powerful in-body 5-axis VR image stabilization is applied to whatever NIKKOR Z lens you’re using. Up to five stops* of image stabilization in up to five directions—yaw, pitch, roll, X and Y. During video recording, optical VR is combined with electronic VR (e-VR) for even steadier shots. Normal VR mode for static subjects. Sports VR for moving subjects.
*Based on CIPA Standards. This value is achieved when the NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/4 S lens is attached, with zoom set at the maximum telephoto position.

VR FOR F-MOUNT NIKKOR LENSES
Your favorite lenses now have VR*.
For the first time, F-Mount NIKKOR lenses like the AF-S NIKKOR 105mm f/1.4E ED or AF-S NIKKOR 14-24mm f/2.8G ED can benefit from in-body 3-axis VR. NIKKOR lenses that already have VR, like the AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8E FL ED VR, get the added benefit of roll axis for a total of 3-axis VR. Just add the optional Mount Adapter FTZ and you’re good to go.
*Requires use of the Mount Adapter FTZ

PORTABLE CINEMATIC POWERHOUSE

NEW Z MOUNT

A breakthrough in optical design.

17% larger internal diameter than Nikon’s acclaimed F Mount. Wider than any full-frame mount available*. It totally changes what’s possible with lens design. Enhanced low-light performance. Even illumination from corner-to-corner. Maximum apertures as wide as f/0.95. Faster data transfer between camera and lens. This is the ideal balance between mount diameter, large image sensor and flange focal distance.
*As of 8/23/18

12 FPS SHOOTING
Built for speed.
Shoot up to 12 FPS at full resolution in Hi+ mode (12-bit RAW or JPEG) without the need for an external battery pack. When speed matters—and it always matters—you’ll catch the shots others might miss.

ISO 51,200 (EXPANDABLE TO 204,800)
Maximum low-light capability.
The Z 6’s 24.5MP image sensor along with the Z Mount’s light gathering potential and flawless EXPEED 6 noise reduction free you to capture beautiful photos and videos at extremely high ISO settings—up to ISO 51,200 (expandable to ISO 204,800).

SILENT MODE
Stealth shooting.
A great advantage of a mirrorless design is the ability to shoot in near silence. Quietly capture important moments during recitals, weddings, newborn photography…anywhere silence is golden.
