Nikon Z6 review: The best full-frame mirrorless camera for video

 

After launching the high-resolution, expensive Z7, Nikon has unveiled the much more affordable Z6. It's the best full-frame mirrorless camera on the market for video, offering a full-frame, full-pixel sensor readout for super crisp 4K video. You can...

Best full-frame mirrorless camera for video ; In-body stabilization ; Good ergonomics ; Excellent images and color science ; Relatively affordable compared to Z7

Mediocre autofocus subject tracking ; Single card slot uses hard-to-find XQD format ; Touch display doesn’t flip around

With the Z6, Nikon set out to beat Sony at its own mirrorless game. While it didn't quite succeed at that, it's still an impressive debut. The A7 III does have better autofocus performance and also edges the Z6 in image quality, especially in low-light...

Nikon Z6 review: This full-frame mirrorless all-rounder combines DSLR-like handling with superb picture quality. It's one of the best cameras you can buy...

Fantastic handling ; Excellent electronic viewfinder ; Great in low light ; In-body image stabilisation good for handheld shooting ; Intuitive touchscreen interface

Only three native lenses at launch ; Screen only tilts (rather than fully articulates) ; Battery life limited compared to a DSLR ; Just one XQD card slot

Nikon Z 6

 

The Nikon Z 6 is the company's high-speed, full-frame camera with a 24MP sensor and a class-leading 12fps burst rate. It's a strong debut thanks to excellent ergonomics, in-body stabilization, and 4K video.

24MP full-frame sensor. 90 percent autofocus coverage. 12fps Raw continuous shooting. In-body image stabilization. Tilting touch LCD. Big, sharp EVF. Compatible with Nikon SLR accessories. 4K video. Dust and splash resistant. Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.

Baked-in Raw adjustments. Oversensitive lens control ring function. Limited native lens selection at launch. Single memory card slot. No PC Sync socket.

Bottom Line: The Nikon Z 6 is the company's high-speed, full-frame camera with a 24MP sensor and a class-leading 12fps burst rate. It's a strong debut thanks to excellent ergonomics, in-body stabilization, and 4K video.

Nikon Z6 Review

 

The Nikon Z6 may not offer the incredible resolution of its sibling, the Z7, but its excellent video quality and faster performance make it an impressive camera at a considerably lower price.

While the flagship Z7 has captured the most attention, Nikon's Z6 is the more accessible of the two models due to its lower price, and it's also the better of the two models for those interested in video capture and low light AF performance. The Z6...

Nikon Z6 review: Fabulous full-framer

 

The lower-resolution full-frame mirrorless of Nikon's two debut Z series cameras is a well-built, capable camera with superb image quality potential.

Great image quality ; Huge potential from new Z mount lenses ; Adapter for old lenses ; Ease of use for existing Nikon users ; Fast autofocus/burst mode (12fps) ; Silent shooting possible ; Electronic viewfinder is of great quality and scale ; Highly...

Single XQD card slot an odd choice ; 24-70mm f/4 lens vignettes a little ; DSLR continuous AF still has the edge ; Not a full vari-angle screen (tilt only) ; Better battery life would be great ; No EyeAF autofocus ; It’s rather expensive

Arguably the most well considered and capable of any full-frame mirrorless camera on the market. Nikon has got the lens mount right, the quality right and, despite strong competition from Sony's well-established range and Panasonic's forthcoming S1, we...

Nikon Z6 review

 

We had to wait a little longer for the Nikon Z6 to arrive than the Nikon Z7 , but it's this camera that perhaps has the broader appeal of Nikon's two full-frame mirrorless models, particularly among enthusiast photographers. Nikon is adopting a...

High-resolution EVF 12fps burst shooting Familiar and refined handling Touchscreen interface 4K video capture 5-axis IS system

XQD card format has limited support Limited dedicated lens range (for now) Limited buffer depth

Nikon certainly hasn't held back with the Z6, and any worries that it would miss the mark are dispelled as soon as you pick it up. Until now we'd have had little hesitation in recommending Sony's Alpha A7 III if you were in the market for a...

Nikon Z 6 Review

 

The Nikon Z 6 and the co-introduced Z 7 are Nikon's long-awaited first full frame MILCs (Mirrorless Interchangeable Lens Cameras). The Z 6 is Nikon's lower resolution, more-affordable model in this series. This is a ruggedly-built, full-featured camera...
