Nikon Z7 II Overview

Nikon Z7 II Mirrorless Camera
High-Resolution Image Making
Improved processing, greater versatility, but familiar in design, the Nikon Z7 II takes everything that was great from the original and ups its capabilities even more. Sporting a high-resolution 45.7MP FX-format BSI CMOS sensor and dual EXPEED 6 image processors, the Z7 II is clearly aimed at the detail-obsessed image-maker.
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. The sensor's design omits the optical low-pass filter for greater detail recording capability and the sensor supports a native sensitivity range down to ISO 64 for lush, rich capture. Updated processing also yields faster speeds, including a quickened 10 fps continuous shooting rate and deeper buffer for working with moving subjects. UHD 4K 60p video is supported, too, with the option to record externally in 10-bit using N-Log or HLG (HDR) modes).
  • 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 & Vibration Reduction
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.

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
  • Nikon NIKKOR Z 24-50mm f/4-6.3 Lens

    Featuring a sleek design and versatile range, the Nikon NIKKOR Z 24-50mm f/4-6.3 is a compact standard zoom covering wide-angle to normal focal lengths. Its retractable design helps to achieve the slim form factor that is suitable to walkaround and travel shooting applications. A stepping motor provides quick, quiet, and precise autofocus performance along with full-time manual focus override to suit both stills and video applications. Its optical design incorporates three aspherical elements and a pair of low dispersion elements, which help to control a variety of aberrations for high sharpness and clarity. A Super Integrated Coating is featured, too, to suppress flare and achieve high contrast and color accuracy. Also, the lens sports a programmable control ring that can be set for intuitive adjustment over a variety of camera and exposure settings.

    Standard zoom is designed for FX-format Nikon Z-mount mirrorless cameras but can also be used with DX models where it provides a 36-75mm equivalent focal length range.
    Three aspherical elements are used to reduce spherical aberrations and distortion in order to realize sharp imagery with accurate rendering.
    Two extra-low dispersion elements greatly reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations throughout the zoom range in order to produce greater clarity and color rendering.
    Super Integrated Coating suppresses flare and ghosting for improved contrast and color fidelity when working in strong lighting conditions.
    Stepping motor delivers impressively smooth, quiet, and fast autofocus performance that is well-suited to both stills and video applications.
    Retractable design maintains a sleek 2.9"-long form factor when the lens is not in use, making it well-suited for travel applications.
    Programmable Control Ring is, by default, set to adjust manual focus but can also be used to control aperture or exposure compensation.
    Specialized electromagnetic aperture mechanism provides greater exposure control stability that is especially beneficial when working with fast continuous shooting rates.
    Rounded seven-blade diaphragm promotes a pleasing out of focus quality that benefits the use of shallow depth of field and selective focus techniques.
    Dust- and moisture-resistant lens barrel benefits the lens' use in inclement conditions.

    Nikon Z7 II Reviews

    Ergonomically a far cry from the Z9

    It hunts for focus to a disturbing extent!

    We took these on safari to Tanzania. With 2 spare batteries per camera. WE used off brand 150-600 lenses and the cameras never gave us an ounce of trouble. They bounced and dropped and everything worked beautifully. They are small and lightweight which is a good thing cause the wildlife lenses weigh a ton.

    Underwhelmed

    When I have a Z7-II and often find myself switching to my Canon EOS-RP in the middle of a shoot there are issues. Advantages - Battery life, significantly better than the Canon RP or R5 which I tested for a month. Twice as many shots as the R5 under photoshoot conditions. Probably let that influence my final decision too much. Feels better in my hand than the R5 did. However significantly heavier than the RP. Disadvantages Compared to R5- Focusing - just doesn't work as well, especially in low light and the eye optimized focus is much less accurate. End up using manual focus peaking all the time since I can't trust the camera to do it's job in auto. Sharpness - Cheapest versions of the Canon lenses consistently deliver better results on the R5 than the Nikon low end glass on the Z7-II, even though Nikon's offerings are more expensive. White Balance - Consistently cool even when warm option enabled. Easy fix in editing but irritating. High ISO JPG's seem to be grainier than the R5's, may just be a perception. Native Lens Offerings - Canon's 24-105 cheapie offers macro, and does a really nice job, nothing similar from Nikon and that is a a shame. Monitor flexibility - much less than the RP, that universal swivel system of Canon's kicks a__. The Sacred Image Quality Issue - I've been primarily a Nikon shooter for many years but realistically between an R5 and a Z7-II. When the Nikon manages to take a good shot it might be better, but the R5 tends to give a lot more good shots. Summary - I should have stuck with the R5, bought 4 more batteries, and taken an emery board to the serrations on the R5's thumb controllers serrations. The Nikon is not a bad camera, especially in goof light, but in my opinion it's certainly not great.

    Amazing!

    I was a little cautious when switching to mirrorless the second time around after Z6ii low light focusing disaster. Z7ii impressed me with so much better focusing in low light, the keeper rate is much higher than z6ii. I was quite impressed!

    Meh

    I'm honestly not impressed compared to what I expected here. The Z7 IIs AF system is pretty great but the camera seems to always produce images that have a blue-ish tone and look very neutral when it comes to colors. The lens is generally sharp but shows significant blur on the outer edges of images taken of moving objects even at shutter speeds over 1-1000th of a second. If you're looking to go mirrorless I'd go with the Sony A7s. Nikon just isn't up to par. With that said. I'm keeping the camera, it has its niche uses for me.

    Can't imagine ever needing another camera

    I'm not a professional shooter. This camera more than fills my photography needs. Forty-five megapixels allows me to capture more than enough detail in landscape photos. The silent shutter allows me to capture photos in intimate settings without disturbing others who might be within earshot of the camera. Ten frames per second, RAW, more than allows me to capture sharp birds-in-flight images. Its low-light capabilities are excellent. In short, I am sure to capture more keepers with this camera.

    disappointed

    Auto focus is horrible!!!! The info button is right next to the touch screen so every time I bring the camera up to my face all my settings get messed up. The focus points will not lock in so I have to constantly adjust where it is focusing and the autofocus still fails.

    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.
