Rank: 76/100 in Top Tech – Nikon Z6: Best Full-frame camera – Tech Category: Camera
Nikon Z camera is reimagined what a mirrorless camera can do with 24.5 megapixels, 100-51200 ISO, 12 FPS and 4K movie
The Nikon Z 6 is a full-frame mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera produced by Nikon. The camera was officially announced on August 23, 2018, to be released in November. Nikon began shipping the Z 6 to retailers on November 16, 2018. This was the second camera to use Nikon’s new Z-mount system after the release of the 45.75 megapixel Nikon Z 7 in September 2018.This more-affordable 24.5 megapixel full-frame model offers nearly all of the same specifications as the Z 7. Aside from the lower resolution, differences include fewer phase-detection autofocus points (273 compared to 493) and an added anti-aliasing filter. The fewer megapixels allow for some benefits: a higher ISO equivalent, faster 12fps (vs. 9fps) drive speed, greater burst depth and the ability to capture oversampled 4K video in full-frame up to 30 fps (and also in APS-C Crop, 10 MP APS-C still images can be captured) recording.Three Z-mount lenses were available by December 2018, the Nikkor Z 24-70mm f/4 SFX AF, the 35mm f/1.8 S FX AF and the 50mm f/1.8 S FX AF. The F-to-Z mount adapter accessory allows for using Nikon lenses from the digital SLR series with full compatibility. In late 2018, Nikon also published a “roadmap” of lenses to be released between 2019 and 2021. A total of nine products were included in that list.A DSLR version of this camera, the Nikon D780, providing similar auto focus performance and video performance, was released in January 2020.
