This is the full frame mirrorless camera for those who sweat every little detail. There’s the ultra-high resolution of 45.7 megapixels with no optical low-pass filter. The power of dual processors. 4K Ultra HD video at 60p. The next-generation 493-point autofocus system. High-speed shooting with the buffer capacity to match. Two card slots. Tons of creative features. Flexible power options. Compatibility with a vertical battery grip. Wireless connectivity with smartphones and laptops and so much more.
MORE OF EVERYTHING
The Z 7II builds upon the professional imaging capabilities of the Z mirrorless platform with more image quality, more dynamic range, more speed, more workflow enhancements…more of everything you want in an ultra-high performance camera.
For the first time in a Nikon camera, the Z 7II is powered by not one, but two EXPEED 6 processing engines. They work together for faster image processing, more buffer capacity and more overall speed.
Dual card slots
Now you have options. One slot accepts CFexpress (Type B) and XQD cards. The other slot accepts standard SD cards. Use the format you prefer. Or use both slots and separate RAW and JPEG files, create a backup or maximize your onboard storage.
The Z 7II uses Nikon’s highest resolution backside illuminated CMOS sensor with no optical low-pass filter. When paired with NIKKOR Z lenses, the result is staggering—some of the cleanest, most detail-rich RAW and JPG images imaginable.
Brilliant dynamic range
From deep blacks to bright whites and Nikon’s superior color science, the Z 7II exhibits outstanding dynamic range in stills and videos, from ISO 64 to 25,600.
Introducing the MB-N11, the pro-level grip for the Z 7II. Working professionals will love it for the vertical shooting controls—shutter release, command dials, Fn button and more—while landscape, sports, wedding and nature photographers will love the 1.9x increase in battery performance.
More autofocus power
The Z 7II builds on Nikon’s flagship 493-point Hybrid AF system with improvements to low light performance, new options for Eye-Detection AF and easier selecting of AF modes.
See in the dark
With a big leap forward in low-light autofocus performance, the Z 7II can find your subject in half the available light as its predecessor. Keep shooting into the evening with the same fast, accurate AF performance.
The AF system’s 90% frame coverage lets you compose the way you want, from the start. Either manually choose one of 493 focus points across the frame, or let subject tracking automatically select the focus points based on where your subject is within the frame—even at the far edges.
Eye-Detection is better than ever
Nikon’s intelligent Eye-Detection AF quickly identifies and locks onto eyes—either humans, dogs or cats—for properly focused portraits. The Z 7II builds on the system with accuracy enhancements and more flexibility.
Right on target
Now you can use Wide-Area (L) Mode to set boundaries for eye detection. Select an area of the frame, and the Z 7II will only look for eyes there—great for busy scenes, group shots and pet portraits.
Capture the eyes on video
All of these features of Eye-Detection AF are also available during video recording. Easily track moving subjects and keep footage looking sharp and professional on the eyes.
Create. In camera.
The Z 7II is packed with innovative features to ignite your creativity.
Combine up to 10 exposures into one visionary composition. Compose and blend—right in the viewfinder—while shooting, or go back later and combine shots with in-camera Retouch features.
Paint with light. Track the paths of stars. Capture movement like never before with long exposures up to 900-seconds. Use your smartphone to trigger the shutter to avoid camera vibrations.
Focus Shift Shooting
The Z 7II will take a series of up to 300 photos, each with an incrementally adjusted focus position. Use third-party software to combine (focus stack) the photos into a single image with surreal depth of field and sharpness.
10 FPS RAW with 3.3x buffer capacity
Catch decisive views of fast action with 10 frames per second continuous shooting—in RAW or JPEG at full resolution with AE/AF tracking.
Making time-lapse sequences is as easy as setting up the camera and hitting record. The Z 7II will create a 4K time-lapse movie and save all the full resolution stills (when used with interval timer shooting).
4K Ultra HD at 60p
It’s here. Bring the Z 7II’s superb image quality to your video work. For maximum definition and flexibility, record 4K Ultra HD at 60p, 30p, 25p or 24p. Or create silky smooth slow motion sequences with 120p Full HD.
Keep it simple or go big
When you want to keep it simple, record your 4K footage in-camera on a CFexpress, XQD or SD card. Step things up by attaching an external recorder (sold separately) to capture 10-bit N-Log or HDR (HLG) footage. Or go all the way with a paid firmware upgrade and compatible external recorder and output 12-bit ProRes RAW or Blackmagic RAW format via HDMI.
The stability you need
Powerful 5-axis VR image stabilization keeps your photos sharp and your videos steady—up to five stops in up to five directions (yaw, pitch, roll, X and Y). Handheld shooting made easy.
Reverse focus rotation
If you’ve been using non-Nikon lenses for video work, the Z 7II lets you reverse the focus ring rotation on NIKKOR Z lenses. Your muscle memory will thank you.
Share photos with a client on the spot. Quickly post a great shot to your feed. Remotely control the Z 7II. However you use it, you’ll love the convenience of Nikon’s ever-evolving SnapBridge app.
When you can’t be behind the lens, pull out your compatible smartphone and use it to control the Z 7II. See what the camera sees, change settings like aperture, shutter speed and white balance, then remotely fire the shutter or start and stop recording.
Any file. Any format.
Transfer full resolution RAW images, JPGs and even 4K video files right to your phone, wirelessly. Then use your favorite apps for editing, adding filters and sharing.
Upgrade on the go
Update the Z 7II’s firmware with the SnapBridge app from almost anywhere. Keeping your camera up to date with the latest features has never been easier or more convenient.
Live stream like a pro
Stream the sharpest, clearest, most flattering footage from the Z 7II with Nikon’s free Webcam Utility. When using a single USB-C connection, your computer will actually power the Z 7II while capturing video. Stream for as long as you need without any extra cables, power adapters or third-party hardware.
One cable does it all
With one universal USB Type C cable (sold separately), you can provide constant power to the Z 7II, charge your battery, stream footage and transfer photos and videos. When shooting time-lapses away from a power source, get extra shoot time with a portable power bank like the Tether Tools Rock Solid External Battery Pack 10,000 mAh Portable Charger.
Make it yours
Prefer back button focus? Often switch between Picture Controls? Need a quick way to select focus area? No problem. Add your favorite functions to the i-Menu then access them from the LCD or EVF. Customize Fn buttons or reassign buttons you don’t typically use to activate your go-to modes, menus or settings. Navigating the camera’s intuitive, clean user interface is a breeze.
