Run with your ideas. Follow your intuition. Whatever your next project demands, the versatile Z-6II full-frame mirrorless camera gives you the imaging power to create faster, sharper, and more fluidly. Meet opportunity with excellence, whether you express yourself best in stills or video.
If you’re a videographer, this is your Nikon. The camera’s full-frame sensor and full-pixel readout enable broader dynamic range and sharper, cleaner video footage. AF speed and tracking sensitivity can be set during recording, and you can use Eye-Detection and Animal-Detection AF while filming. Flexible frame rates increase your options and you can output footage however you need.
So much faster
The ultra-wide Hybrid AF system offers spot-on subject acquisition. You can shoot up to 14 fps at full resolution with full autofocus and auto exposure. When speed matters—and it always matters—you’ll catch the shots others might miss.
Twice as powerful
Whatever you do with the light, do it faster and more fluidly. Twin EXPEED processors double the power at your disposal for everything from AF to buffer capacity. Performance is smooth as silk, whether filming or shooting stills.
More speed—for longer
The faster, high-performance buffer lets you shoot up to 200 JPEGs or 124 12-bit uncompressed RAW images in one burst. The high refresh rate means you won’t miss a second, and the dual EXPEED engines ensure lightning-fast write speeds.
The optional Power Battery Pack MB-N11 features integrated controls for vertical shooting. And it lets you hot-swap batteries without losing power.
Shooting interviews? You can run the camera via a USB Type-C cable, and even charge the battery while shooting. Even on a long shoot, this camera keeps up.
Whether you’re a photographer who shoots video, a videographer who captures stills, or mixed media is your thing. Whether you collaborate or work alone. Whether it’s high-speed action or captivating stillness. Cinematic 4K or on-the-spot interviews. Whatever you create with the light, this camera keeps up.
RAW over HDMI
Maximum control in post. Faster transfer rates. The Z 6II lets you connect to a compatible ATOMOS external recorder to export video as ProRes RAW®, which preserves all the data from the camera’s full-frame sensor in smaller files.¹ ²
Hybrid Log Gamma (HLG)
Remove the need for time-consuming colour grading and shoot video footage ready for immediate playback on HDR displays. The camera’s HLG shooting formats preserve more detail, dynamic range and contrast—no post processing required.³
Use the optional Wireless Remote WR-R11b and Wireless Remote Controller WR-1 for remote shooting, or to control external flashes like the SB-5000 Speedlights.
You can use external flashes even when shooting at high frame rates of up to 14 fps. Create greater depth and dimension—light the entire frame at any given moment.
The FTZ Mount Adapter gives you compatibility with over 300 F-mount NIKKOR lenses. From fast primes to super-telephoto zooms, and everything in between.
New ways to see
Shoot video. Shoot stills. Shoot it all. Love the cinematic depth of field you can achieve with the wide selection of fast-focusing, compact NIKKOR Z lenses.
Nikon’s ever-evolving SnapBridge app now lets you update your camera’s firmware via your smart device. You can also use the app to shoot stills and video remotely. Or to filter and share JPEGs or RAW files to any smart device or computer: you can add hashtags and copyright info right from the app.
¹ To activate 12-bit RAW video output, please take your camera to a Nikon service centre. Costs may be incurred.
² The Z 6II must be connected to a compatible ATOMOS external capture device to export ProRes RAW footage. See the ATOMOS website for a complete list and updates.
³ In order to capture rich HLG footage with your Z 6II, an external movie recorder is required.
⁴ Maximum frame advance rate as measured by in-house tests.
⁵ Figures are for ISO 100 and f/2.0 lens at 20 °C/68 °F.
⁶ Measured in photo mode at ISO 100 and a temperature of 20 °C/68 °F using single-servo AF (AF-S) and a lens with a maximum aperture of f/2.0.
⁷ Number of focus points available in photo mode with single-point AF selected for AF-area mode and FX selected for image area.
⁸ Actual frame rates for 120p, 100p, 60p, 50p, 30p, 25p, and 24p are 119.88, 100, 59.94, 50, 29.97, 25, and 23.976 fps respectively.
⁹ Without interference. Range may vary with signal strength and presence or absence of obstacles.
¹⁰ EN-EL15b/EN-EL15a/EN-EL15 batteries can also be used. Note, however, that fewer pictures can be taken on a single charge than with the EN-EL15c. The EH-7P charging AC adapter can be used to charge EN-EL15c/EN-EL15b batteries only.
¹¹ EN-EL15b/EN-EL15a/EN-EL15 batteries can be used in place of the EN-EL15c. The number of pictures that can be taken on a single charge (i.e., battery endurance) will however drop compared to the EN-EL15c.
