Welcome to a new era of Nikon imaging. A system born from our unending quest for perfection. A system that opens a new dimension of possibilities. A system inspired by our past but designed for tomorrow.
A system only Nikon could create.
Nikon Z System Introducing the Z mount, Nikon's full-frame mirrorless system promises to deliver class-leading image quality and optics in a compact form factor. The Z mount itself makes much of this possible with a 17% larger inner diameter than the F mount, enabling the use of more advanced optics and lens designs, including ultra-fast f/0.95 options. For minimizing camera and lens size, the Z mount features a 65% shorter flange distance, measuring just 16mm, which allows for dramatically slimmed down body designs. The larger mount also supports faster and larger-volume communications between the body and lens to improve overall performance throughout the system.
The ideal hybrid camera:
Whichever way you look at it, the Nikon Z 7 is a truly all-round camera. If you're a stills photographer, this camera can match the fast-paced world that you live in. Continuous shooting up to 9fps, an impressive hybrid AF system, and enough resolution to handle even the most detailed of subjects. Videographers are equally comfortable knowing that the camera can handle 4K shooting up to 30fps, Full HD shooting up to a massive 120fps, and timelapse functionality in 4K UHD. There's also the option to send a 10-bit 4:2:2 signal out to a external recording device via HDMI. Nikon's own N-Log gamma profile comes installed - giving you all the room you need in post-production. Need to shoot both stills and video? The Z 7 has got you covered; allowing users to take stills while filming.
In-body image stabilisation:
The camera's 5-axis in-body stabilisation is rated up to 3-stops when not used alongside a VR (Vibration Reduction) lens, and up to 5-stops with a VR lens – a first for Nikon.
The Nikon Z 7 features a back-illuminated 45.7MP full-frame CMOS sensor. By increasing the amount of light captured by the sensor, the camera's low-light performance is improved significantly.
Monitor your work in amazing detail:
The camera's electronic viewfinder (EVF) captures approximately 100% of the frame, so you don't miss an inch of your shot. With a resolution of 3690K dots, the level of detail is superb – ensuring that you know exactly what you're shooting, and allowing you to get pinpoint accuracy when focusing.
Never miss a shot due to an inferior autofocus system. Featuring a new 493-point hybrid autofocus system using phase detection with single-point AF, that covers approximately 90% of the frame. Phase-detection is built into the sensor for maximum performance.
4K UHD Video Recording and 8K Time-Lapse: Utilizing the sensor and processor attributes for more than just still imagery, the Z7 is also a more-than-capable multimedia camera. Video recording is possible at UHD 4K (3840 x 2160) using either the full-frame area or a DX crop area in 30p, 25p, or 24p frame rates. Full HD 1080p video recording is also supported at up to 120p for slow motion playback, and 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. This includes the N-Log gamma for capturing flat-looking footage that maximizes dynamic range. 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.
The Z7 also blends both still and video capabilities with the ability to produce 8K time-lapses using the Interval Timer Mode or in-camera 4K time-lapse movies, with the ability to record up to 9999 exposures for either method. This system also makes use of a silent interval timer, which produces no shutter noise, does not contribute to wear on the shutter mechanism, and is energy efficient to maximize battery life.
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.
