More than mirrorless. Nikon mirrorless.
Our vision has always been to create cameras and lenses that capture more light. More light means more detail. More speed. More possibilities. The Z 7 brings that vision to life (and then some). Combining the advantages of a lightweight mirrorless design, a revolutionary new full-frame lens mount and matched lenses, a Nikon designed 45.7MP image sensor and seamless integration with Nikon’s DSLR system—including the NIKKOR lenses you love—the Z 7 is a camera unlike any before it. And yet, it’s unmistakably a Nikon. This is mirrorless reinvented.
9 FPS Continuous Shooting
64–25,600 ISO (Expandable to 102,400)
4K UHD 3840x2160 at 30/25/24p
Built-in Wi-Fi Connectivity Bluetooth 4K is an emerging standard for digital motion picture resolution. 4K UHD is 3840x2160 and provides four times as much resolution as Full HD (1920x1080). 8K Time-Lapse
493-Point On-Sensor PDAF
4932 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.
New Hybrid Autofocus
Using an AF algorithm optimized for its FX-format sensor, Z 7 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
Whether shooting eye-level with the EVF or in Live View with the LCD, Auto Area AF smoothly tracks your subject. When shooting portraits for example 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.
Get the latest Subject Tracking performance which Requires Firmware 3.0.
Eye-Detection AF is a powerful tool for capturing portraits that tracks and locks focus on your subject’s eye not only with AF-S (Single AF) mode, but also with AF-C (Continuous AF) mode—especially useful when your subject keeps changing their pose. Eye-Detection AF is also capable of intelligently recognizing the eyes of multiple people in the frame, giving you the freedom to choose which person and eye to focus on and can even remain locked on eyes that become partially or temporarily obstructed.
New Animal Detection AF
Capture still images when focus has been acquired on a dog or cat's eye, even in situations that were previously difficult for auto-area AF. When shooting video dog or cat’s face can be detected.
Requires Firmware 3.0.
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.
Up to 5 Stops of VR Image Stabilization
Powerful in-body 5-axis VR image stabilization is applied to whatever NIKKOR Z lens you’re using. Up to five stops3 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.
Full Frame 4K Ultra HD
Amazing productions start here.
Capture cinematic 16:9 4K UHD/30p video in full-frame using the total width and resolution of the Z 7’s backside-illuminated sensor. Clean output at high ISO. Zero crop factor with full-frame NIKKOR Z and F-Mount NIKKOR lenses. Full-pixel readout in DX Mode for sharper 4K footage with rich information equivalent to 5K. Focus Peaking in both 4K and 1080p recording. Simultaneous 8MP stills.5 This is 4K as it was meant to be.
8K Time-Lapse Travel through time.
Like the D850, the Z 7 is a time-lapse machine. Shoot up to 9,999 full resolution stills with no shutter vibration using the Interval Timer, then combine them into one 8K movie with 3rd party software. Create 4K time-lapse sequences right in the camera with exposure smoothing and extended low-light metering range—great for star trails and light painting.
New N-Log With View Assist Maximum detail, viewable in-camera.
Nikon’s N-LOG format preserves more detail, up to 12 stops of dynamic range, shadows and highlights to make color grading more precise in post. For easier spot checking of focus and exposure, the new View Assist function displays simple gradation compensation, highly useful for confirming the final look of the footage.
New 10-Bit HDMI Output
What’s the difference between 8-bit and 10-bit recording? Only about 1 billion more colors (64X more data)—so much more flexibility in post-processing. Record directly to an optional external recorder with 10-bit output via HDMI, the industry standard. Simultaneously record uncompressed 8-bit 4K UHD movie files to the memory card and an external recorder. (Atomos Open Protocol supported for syncing start/stop.)
Smooth, Quiet AF
The speed, smoothness and accuracy of the Z 7’s AF system is ideal for video. It’s virtually silent, very little chance it will be picked up by an external mic. When used with NIKKOR Z lenses, “breathing” and “wobbling” are all but eliminated. You can even touch to focus using the LCD for fast transitions between subjects.
