Nikon Z Series Full Frame SLR Cameras
Before we look at the differences between Nikon's two full-frame mirror-free cameras, let's talk about their similarities – there are a lot of them. Both use Nikon's rapid EXPEED 6 for image processing and are built with great grips that should take some professionals who complain about Sony's models, feeling too small in their hands.
The electronic views have a resolution of 3.69 million points, for a crystal clear view and minimal blackout during fast shooting. Photographers can draw up a menu and adjust settings like ISO and AF area mode while watching through EVF. Below is a tiltable touchscreen that can be used to focus and even shoot the shutter.
They have a single slot for XQD memory cards instead of the usual SD cards and use the regular Nikon EL15 battery. Both cameras also feature Nikon's first vibration reduction camera, can shoot 4K Ultra HD recordings, compatible with Nikon DSLR accessories, have a range of timeouts and built-in WiFi. ” width=”750″ height=”455″ srcset=”https://mymodernmet.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2018/08/nikon-z-evf.jpg 750w, https://mymodernmet.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2018/08/nikon-z-evf-300×182.jpg 300w” sizes=”(max-width: 750px) 100vw, 750px”/>
Nikon Z7 is the company's flagship model with a 493-point autofocus system and a full sensor with 45.7 megapixels. Engadget notes that if you mainly use it for video, Z6 may be for you as "Z7 detects 4K by an APS-C crop instead of using the entire frame without binning, like Z6."
The Nikon Z6 is the more affordable mirror-free option, but retains many of the features of the Z7. The Z6 has a 24.5 megapixel sensor and a 273-point autofocus system.
