Extending the lens compatibility for this full-frame mirrorless camera, the Nikon Z7 II Mirrorless Camera with FTZ Adapter Kit from B&H bundles the Z7 II with the FTZ Mount Adapter to enable working with F-mount SLR lenses.

Second Generation Z
Improving upon their initial efforts, Nikon has revised the Z7 platform to offer more speed, faster processing, and greater versatility without sacrificing the beloved qualities of the original camera.
  • Dual EXPEED 6 image processors offer increased buffer performance, a faster 10 fps continuous shooting rate, and noticeably reduced blackout times in the viewfinder.
  • Updated autofocus now includes Eye and Face Detection for both humans and animals in the Wide-Area AF mode, for both photo and video recording.
  • Timed long exposure shooting is now possible for up to 900 seconds (15 minutes) without the need of an external remote.
  • Dual memory card slots offer more flexible file storage capabilities; one CFexpress Type B and one SD UHS-II slot permit overflow, segregated, and repetitive saving options.
  • USB Type-C port permits in-camera charging or continuous power for on-the-go charging or extended shooting times.
  • The rotation direction of the focus ring on lenses can be switched to suit one's familiarity.
  • Support for HDR (HLG) mode when recording externally gives instant HDR-suitable video files for immediate playback. N-Log is also available for enhanced control during post-production and grading, too.
  • Eligible for an optional ProRes RAW upgrade, enabling the camera to output ProRes RAW footage to a compatible Atomos external recorder. This upgrade provides greater color grading flexibility with the ProRes codec along with the ability to output uncompressed 12-bit raw footage over HDMI. This upgrade will be available in early 2021.
  • The SnapBridge wireless connectivity can be used to update the camera's firmware, instead of relying on a memory card-based system of updating.
  • Updated creative shooting modes include Multiple Exposure, 20 different Picture Control settings, and in-camera Timelapse recording. There is also a Focus Shift mode for recording up to 300 sequential frames with the focus position shifted between exposures for focus stacking applications.
  • Compatible with optional MB-N11 Power Battery Pack for additional battery life and improved handling.
45.7MP FX-Format BSI CMOS Sensor and Dual EXPEED 6 Processors
A 45.7MP BSI CMOS sensor is used for high-resolution shooting, impressive low-light quality, and fast readout speeds to benefit continuous shooting, movies, and time-lapse recording. The back-illuminated design of the sensor affords noticeably clean high-sensitivity output and reduced noise when working at high ISO values, up to a native ISO 25600, as well as vivid and smooth quality at sensitivities as low as ISO 64. The sensor's design also omits the conventional optical low-pass filter in order to achieve the greatest sharpness and resolution from the sensor. Benefitting the sensor are dual EXPEED 6 image processors, which affords a wealth of speed throughout the camera system, including the ability to shoot continuously at 10 fps for up to 50 consecutive frames.
UHD 4K Video Recording
Utilizing the sensor and processor attributes for more than just still imagery, the Z7 II is also a more-than-capable multimedia camera. UHD 4K video recording is possible up to 60p and Full HD 1080p video recording is also supported at up to 120p for slow motion playback. Video files can be saved to the in-camera memory cards or as an uncompressed file to an optional external recorder via HDMI out.

Advanced video functionalities have been added with the Z7 II, including the N-Log gamma for capturing flat-looking footage that maximizes dynamic range and HLG (HDR) for recording HDR-ready footage. Other additions are the ability to output high-quality 10-bit data over HDMI and an Electronic VR function for smooth handheld shooting. Focus Peaking can be used to benefit manual focus control and a Zebra Stripes option is also available to help detect over-exposed areas within the frame. Audio recording can be handled using the built-in stereo microphone or an optional external mic can be added via the 3.5mm stereo jack for greater control over quality, and live monitoring is possible via the headphone jack.

Firmware version 1.10 unlocks UHD 4K recording at 60p and 50p frame rates and enables raw video output to Blackmagic Design Video Assist external recorders, and also improves eye-detection performance Auto-Area AF and Wide-Area AF modes.
493-Point Phase-Detect AF System
Located on the sensor is an array of 493 phase-detect autofocus points covering 90% of the image area both vertically and horizontally. This provides fast and accurate focusing for both stills and video and with a wide coverage area, subject tracking will work out to near the edges of the frame. Hybrid AF is available for video, which will automatically switch between phase- and contrast-detect systems to provide smooth focus during shooting. Additionally, the latest NIKKOR Z lenses are optimized for silent operation.
Vibration Reduction
In-body 5-axis sensor-shift Vibration Reduction compensates for up to 5 stops of camera shake regardless of the Z-type lens being used. This system also works with adapted F-mount lenses, when using the optional FTZ Adapter, where 3-axis stabilization is used.
Body Design
  • A large 3.2" 2.1m-dot LCD screen is available for bright, clear, and vivid image playback and live view shooting. The screen has a tilting design to benefit working from both high and low angles, and it is also a touchscreen for more intuitive operation, navigation, and settings control.
  • A 3.6m-dot OLED electronic finder is present for comfortable eye-level viewing. It has a high 0.80x magnification and uses NIKKOR optics to guarantee a sharp, clear image. The finder also has a fluorine coating for easier cleaning.
  • The top panel of the Z7 II is configured with a dot-matrix OLED. This low-energy display provides quick access to important camera settings.
  • Configured with one CFexpress Type B/XQD memory card slot and one UHS-II SD card slot, flexible file storage is possible with the option to use repetitive, overflow, or segregated storage methods.
  • A robust magnesium alloy chassis is both dust- and weather-resistant to benefit working in harsh climates and inclement conditions.
  • The ergonomic grip and overall form factor is shaped to benefit handling for extended periods of time and is further accentuated by an anti-slip material and a joystick for seamless settings and focus point selection.
  • Built-in SnapBridge connectivity to enable seamless transfer of low-resolution imagery as well as remote shooting capabilities. BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) and Wi-Fi enables communication between the camera and a smart device and, additionally, the mobile device can remotely trigger the shutter and display a live view image from the camera to enable working from a distance. Additionally, SnapBridge can also be used as an easier method of updating the camera's firmware.
Z7 II Firmware Ver. 1.30 (Released 10/19/2021)
  • Portrait Impression Balance items have been added to the PHOTO SHOOTING MENU and MOVIE SHOOTING MENU
  • The monitor now shows the shooting display while tilted when On is selected for Image review in the PLAYBACK MENU
  • Custom Setting f4 (Aperture lock) in the CUSTOM SETTING MENU now available when an FTZ mount adapter is attached
  • The flash-ready light on SB-5000 flash units will light if a WR-R10 or WR-R11b is used for wireless remote flash photography
  • Fixed: Focus would normally remain locked if the AF-ON button was kept pressed while the shutter-release button was used to take a series of pictures, the camera would refocus without input from the AF-ON button
  • Fixed: Custom Setting a6 (AF activation) in the CUSTOM SETTING MENU set to AF-ON only with Enable selected for Out-of-focus release
  • Fixed: Continuous L or Continuous H selected for Release mode
  • Fixed: Single AF selected for Focus mode
  • Fixed: Single-point AF selected for AF-area mode

    So excited to go mirrorless! This model is portable and compact without sacrificing quality. Will definitely be taking this on my next trip instead of a bulky DSLR

    Every positive thing you have heard about the camera is true. I like the bag but they needed to have put snaps or something to keep the flap secure. Velcro is nice but it you are active, it might not hold the top down and your gear secure.

    Nikon z72 - I own three of them. Camera number 2 out of 3 total is now in the shop. Camera number one is at NIKON Service as well because the sensor failed after 34 days of ownership. Now, to my absolute amazement camera number 2 has failed with an error related to storage cards and a stuck shutter on day number 92. Yes, out of three cameras I have recently purchased - 2 of them are now at NIKON for service. NOT ACCEPTABLE. I have used NIKON products for 40+ years and never, ever once experienced the kind of disappointment with a NIKON product that I am a feeling now. These products are too fragile and appear to have some major issues related to quality. Neither camera was ever dropped or put in a wet environment. I use gear professionally but never abusively. This is supposed to be a prosumer camera with quality to match, right? Yes, two out of three are now in the shop for warranty work within 90 days or less. Whatever doubts I may have felt when the first one failed at 34 days are nothing compared to now. I will be ordering a SONY branded camera and a complement of professional lenses over the next couple of days and selling all of this NIKON product as soon as possible. NIKON - you have now permanently lost a life long, die hard NIKON user and customer. I will not come back - I do not forgive and I do not forget. If you are having great experiences with your NIKON z72 then I am super happy for you and, yes, a bit jealous. I really like the images we get from these cameras as well but I need durability - NOT a TOY. If you are looking through the reviews for insights into quality - then heed my experience and do more research - my results may not as much of an anomaly as it first may seem.

    I switched from a D810 to this camera recently and could not be happier! I actually quit using my D810 because of the weight. I've been shooting Nikon since the mid-80's and wanted to stay with it so opted for this camera. I love it! It's light. It's wicked smart and capable. I just took it to Joshua Tree and got some of the best images of my life. Super happy! It feels like an old friend. The learning curve wasn't nearly as steep as I feared. A few tutorials online and I was good to go! See uploaded Joshua Tree images...

    I will try to be as balanced about this review as I can. I love this line of camera and currently own three Nikon Z7ii bodies to fulfill the requirements of my photography needs. The images we get from these cameras have been superb and functionality has been acceptable in many ways. It should also be noted I have been a Nikon user for 40+ years and have owned too many of their products throughout that span of time to recount them all. I bought a second Z7ii from B&H 34 days ago. It is important to note this is not a B&H Photo failure and I want to say they have always taken great care of me over the many years I have been using them. This is a failure of Nikon in my opinion. On day 34 during studio type use, the images produced by this Z7ii suddenly started having a vertical blue line running from top to bottom. I tried a camera reset, different lenses and different memory cards but nothing changed the fact that the camera produced a blue line across the image. Nothing on the Nikon technical support website came close to describing or defining this issue. The camera was a couple of days past the policy return time with B&H, so now it had to go to Nikon for warranty service. Nikon will not make any promises related to the turn around time of a repair, so now the wait begins. I entered a review on the Nikon website detailing the issue and my disappointment in such a sudden and unexpected failure of their product in an amazingly short amount of time. As of the day of this review - it has not been posted by Nikon. What is Nikon trying to hide? If there are quality issues Nikon customers are experiencing - then folks scanning the review sections for this product need to know, ought to know. I would have liked to know. Like I previously stated, I love the Z7ii camera line. I do not like the fact this one camera failed so soon after purchase. Now, I am also concerned about the overall product quality and the potential limited life span of these cameras - doubts I have never experienced with a Nikon product until now. All I can say is - knowledge like this can be advantageous when making purchasing decisions. \ Many thanks to B&H for giving me a voice to relate my concern. I included a photo showing the issue - for reference only.

    I upgraded from a Nikon Z6. Really appreciate using the same user interface, nothing new to learn. A few years back I tried downsizing from a D850 to the Z6, but over time realized I missed the higher resolution as I tend to crop images a lot. This is a fantastic camera and I'm amazed by the lens performance of the Z-mount designs.

    Unsure how to set up and use

    By Anne
    Rated 3 out of 5
    Date: 2022-07-17

    I have not fully set up my Z7ii yet because I think the manual is difficult to follow. I have had to go to various Youtube videos to learn how to set up and use it. I don't know why B&H does not make this easier. Complete, in-depth videos would help so much. I just found someone I had to pay $50 to to learn all the information. I should not have to do that . Saying read the manual does not cut it for me. I am ADHD and need more than that. Not to mention, I am older and need extra help. If B&H would put out videos to teach about mirrorless cameras, people would be so happy to have them. Mirrorless are new to everyone, so this should be an important thing to do for all of us. It should not be this much trouble. Please help!!!

    Does the camera have support Chinese language ?
    Asked by: ping
    While we do not have the Z7II in our hands yet, the Z6, Z7, and Z6II unfortunately do not have Mandarin (Simplified or Traditional). It is my assumption that the Z7II will probably not support the Chinese language either. According to my floor model of the Z6II, the four languages available are English, Spanish, French, and Portuguese.

    Asked by: Anonymous
    None whatsoever! :) The FTZ adapter has no optics in it interfering with IQ, and with almost all Nikon F-mount lenses, they retain full-functionality. With regards to the MIOPS triggers, their website claims that it works with the Z7, but makes no mention of the Z7II. However, we believe it will not have any issues. I recommend contacting MIOPS directly for compatibility questions. :)
