Nikon say the Z6 is "perhaps the most adaptable camera we’ve ever created", and the combination of features they've packed into this mirrorless camera seems to back up that claim.
Much of the adaptability of any camera comes down to interchangeable lenses, and what they offer across the board. The Z6 is no exception, with a larger Z Mount and shorter flange focal distance allowing the renowned NIKKOR Z lenses to provide incredible sharpness and detail at any aperture, and superb results in low light.
On the Z6, a new customizable menu appears inside the viewfinder, so you can easily adjust settings such as focus modes, white balance, exposure and VR settings, without having to take your eye off the prize shot.
The new hybrid autofocus switches between autofocus modes to fine-tune the clarity of the final shot to an even greater degree. Meanwhile, light-shielding phase detection pixels are arranged to provide more accurate autofocus in dim lighting.
Vibration Reduction (VR) overcomes the "shakes", and the better the VR, the better the shot. VR in the Nikon Z6 is superior to most, and is available in whatever NIKKOR Z lens you choose, while optical and electronic VR combine for steadier video footage.
The Z6 can capture 16:9 4K UHD/30p video in full-frame. In other words, cinema-quality video footage - sharp, clean and alive with colour. You’ll feel like you've been making movies when you see the stunning results.
A newer model Nikon Z6 II was released in October 2020.
