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 Z7 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 DSLR system-including the nikkor lenses you love-the Z7 is a camera Unlike any before it. And yet, it’s unmistakably a Nikon. This is mirrorless reinvented. The new Z mount has a 17% larger internal diameter than Nikon's acclaimed F-mount. It totally changes what’s possible with lens design. Enhanced low-light performance. Even illumination from corner-to-corner. Maximum apertures as wide as f/0.95. Faster data transfer between camera and lens. This is the ideal balance between mount diameter, large image sensor and flange focal distance.
The next generation of Nikkor glass
Forget about stopping down for maximum sharpness—Nikkor Z are at their best and deliver corner-to-corner sharpness even at their widest aperture.
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, with 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
All relevant info is displayed out of the way and is easy on the eyes.
A 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.
Greater performance from the lenses you love
When used with the optional Mount Adapter FTZ, more than 90 F-Mount Nikkor lenses maintain all of their sharpness, resolving power and functionality and gain the advantages of the Z 7’s in-body VR, silent shooting, PDAF focusing system*, 4K video and more. Approximately 360 F-Mount Nikkor lenses can be used. Compatibility as only Nikon can deliver.
*Full AF/AE supported when using FX or DX AF-S Type G/D/E, AF-P type G/E, AF-I type D and AF-S / AF-I Teleconverters
Up to 5 Stops of VR Image Stabilization
Rock steady. Tack sharp.
Powerful in-body 5-axis VR image stabilization is applied to whatever Nikkor Z lens you’re using. Up to five stops* 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.
*Based on CIPA Standards. This value is achieved when the NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/4 S lens is attached, with zoom set at the maximum telephoto position.
VR for F-Mount Nikkor Lenses
Your favorite lenses now have VR*.
For the first time, F-Mount Nikkor lenses like the AF-S Nikkor 105mm f/1.4E ED or AF-S Nikkor 14-24mm f/2.8G ED can benefit from in-body 3-axis VR. Nikkor lenses that already have VR, like the AF-S Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8E FL ED VR, get the added benefit of roll axis for a total of 3-axis VR. Just add the optional Mount Adapter FTZ and you’re good to go.
*Requires use of the Mount Adapter FTZ
New Nikkor Z Lenses
The next generation of Nikkor glass.
Empowered by the larger Z Mount and shorter 16mm flange focal distance, Nikkor Z lenses gather more light and break traditional rules of the 'sweet spot'.
New Subject Tracking
Follow a face in the crowd.
Whether shooting eye-level with the EVF or in Live View with the LCD, Auto Area AF smoothly tracks your subject's face—even when it’s one among many. 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.
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*. This is 4K as it was meant to be.
*During 4K recording
New 10-Bit HDMI Output
Smoother, richer post processing.
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.)
493-Point On-Sensor PDAF
The points of the story.
493* 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. *435 on-sensor PDAF when used for video in FX-based movie format with Single-Point AF.
New Hybrid Autofocus
he best of both worlds.
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 Z Mount
A breakthrough in optical design.
17% larger internal diameter than Nikon's acclaimed F-Mount. Wider than any full-frame mount available*. It totally changes what’s possible with lens design. Enhanced low-light performance. Even illumination from corner-to-corner. Maximum apertures as wide as f/0.95. Faster data transfer between camera and lens. This is the ideal balance between mount diameter, large image sensor and flange focal distance.
Expeed 6 Image Processing
Bringing your images to life.
One of the fastest, most comprehensive Expeed system yet. Delicate tones with vivid colors. Suppressed noise without loss of detail. Greater processing speed. New mid-range sharpening alongside conventional sharpening. Diffraction compensation for stopped down lenses. 4K capture with mid-range sharpening, vignette control, auto distortion control and lateral chromatic aberration correction. This is the brain and muscle of the Z 7.
ISO 64 (Expandable to ISO 32)
