Superb stills & video performance
One of Nikon’s first line of full frame mirrorless cameras, the Z6 is a multimedia camera of outstanding capability. Its 24.5MP backside illumination CMOS sensor delivers superbly sharp, clear stills and video with reduced noise throughout its ISO 100-51,200 sensitivity range. Bolstering this is the latest EXPEED 6 processor, which allows for quick responsiveness, 12 fps continuous shooting, and fast readout speeds for movie and time- lapse recording.
Fast and accurate focusing
With 273 focus points covering 90% of the imaging area, the Z6’s hybrid AF system switches automatically between contrast detect AF and focal plane phase detection AF so you can focus with reliable speed and accuracy.
Clear, natural EVF
Clear, natural viewing—comparable to that of an optical viewfinder—is made possible by the Z6’s 3.6 million-dot electronic viewfinder (EVF), boasting 100% frame coverage and 0.8x magnification. Display the <i> menu in the EVF to quickly view and adjust essential settings without looking away from the finder.
Pro-level video features
The Z6’s advanced video features give you the tools to create cinema-ready footage. It supports recording at 4K/30p* or full HD/120p with features such as Active D-Lighting and focus peaking to help control exposure. Nikon’s own 10-bit N-log can also be used with 10- bit HDMI output for maximum dynamic range. Extensive colour depth and 12 stop dynamic range facilitates colour grading while timecode** support enables easier syncing of footage and sound from multiple devices. The control ring built into NIKKOR Z lenses provides smooth and quiet control over key exposure settings.

Built-in vibration reduction & silent shutter
In-camera, 5-axis vibration reduction (VR) counteracts camera shake by an incredible five stops for stabilised photography and video. The FTZ mount adapter enables this feature with all NIKKOR F lenses, whether they’re equipped with or without VR. Silent image capture eliminates shutter release movement and noise for even greater stability.
Durable, compact & user-friendly
As durable and dust- and drip-resistant as the D850, the Z6 is surprisingly compact and lightweight. It benefits from Nikon’s renowned ergonomics in a sturdy, comfortable grip and user-friendly configuration incorporating a 3.2 inch, 2.1 million-dot LCD touch screen and top display panel.
