The Z 7II builds upon the professional imaging capabilities of the Z mirrorless platform with more image quality, more dynamic range, more speed, more workflow enhancements…more of everything you want in an ultra-high performance camera. The Z 7II uses Nikon’s highest resolution backside illuminated CMOS sensor with no optical low-pass filter. When paired with NIKKOR Z lenses, the result is staggering—some of the cleanest, most detail-rich RAW and JPG images imaginable. For the first time in a Nikon camera, the Z 7II is powered by not one, but two EXPEED 6 processing engines. They work together for faster image processing, more buffer capacity and more overall speed.
Brilliant dynamic range.
From deep blacks to bright whites and Nikon’s superior color science, the Z 7II exhibits outstanding dynamic range in stills and videos, from ISO 64 to 25,600. Now you have options. One slot accepts CFexpress (Type B) and XQD cards. The other slot accepts standard SD cards. Use the format you prefer. Or use both slots and separate RAW and JPEG files, create a backup or maximize your onboard storage. This is the full frame mirrorless camera for those who sweat every little detail. There’s the ultra-high resolution of 45.7 megapixels with no optical low-pass filter. The power of dual processors. 4K Ultra HD video at 60p. The next-generation 493-point autofocus system.
More autofocus power.
The Z 7II builds on Nikon’s flagship 493-point Hybrid AF system with improvements to low light performance, new options for Eye-Detection AF and easier selecting of AF modes. Catch decisive views of fast action with 10 frames per second continuous shooting—in RAW or JPEG at full resolution with AE/AF tracking. High-speed shooting with the buffer capacity to match. Two card slots. Tons of creative features. Flexible power options. Compatibility with a vertical battery grip. Wireless connectivity with smartphones and laptops and so much more.
See in the dark.
With a big leap forward in low-light autofocus performance, the Z 7II can find your subject in half the available light as its predecessor*. Keep shooting into the evening with the same fast, accurate AF performance. The AF system’s 90% frame coverage lets you compose the way you want, from the start. Either manually choose one of 493 focus points across the frame, or let subject tracking automatically select the focus points based on where your subject is within the frame—even at the far edges. Picture Control and creative filters are all applied in real-time. You can customize what information gets shown in the viewfinder—or hide it all for a pure view.
Eye-Detection. Better than ever.
Nikon’s intelligent Eye-Detection AF quickly identifies and locks onto eyes—either humans, dogs or cats—for properly focused portraits. The Z 7II builds on the system with accuracy enhancements and more flexibility. Now you can use Wide-Area (L) Mode to set boundaries for eye detection. Select an area of the frame, and the Z 7II will only look for eyes there—great for busy scenes, group shots and pet portraits. All of these features of Eye-Detection AF are also available during video recording. Easily track moving subjects and keep footage looking sharp and professional on the eyes.
The stability you need.
Powerful 5-axis VR image stabilization keeps your photos sharp and your videos steady—up to five stops in up to five directions* (yaw, pitch, roll, X and Y). Handheld shooting made easy. The Z 7II is ready for what’s next. Its skeleton is forged from Magnesium Alloy for an optimal balance of strength and lightness. Its exterior is fully weather sealed to keep dust, grime and moisture out. Don’t baby this baby. Like all Nikon cameras, the Z 7II handles like a dream. A deep grip design. Balanced weight. Sturdy build with smart button placement.
