The Nikon Z 6 is the company’s midrange full-frame mirrorless camera. It features a 24.5MP BSI-CMOS sensor, a hybrid AF system with 273 points and 90% coverage and 5-axis in-body image stabilization. The rugged body is similar in design to the D750/D850 DSLRs and is fully sealed against dust and moisture. It features a 3.68M-dot electronic viewfinder and tilting 3.2″, 2.1M-dot touchscreen LCD. An OLED panel on the top plate displays current shooting settings. Photos are stored on an XQD card.

The Z 6 can shoot continuously at 12 fps with AE locked and 5.5 fps with continuous AF/AE. It can capture oversampled 4K video for maximum resolution. You can use the same features for videos as you can for stills, including 5-axis IS and the hybrid AF system (with 435 points here). The Z 6 supports focus peaking, zebra patterns, time code and 10-bit Log output over HDMI. The camera can record 8-bit video internally and externally at the same time.

Connectivity options include Wi-Fi (802.11ac) with Bluetooth as well as the ability to connect directly to a PC.

The Nikon Z6 is a well-built full-frame mirrorless camera that produces excellent stills and 4K video. Autofocus is reliable most of the time, including during burst shooting, though selecting a subject on which to track is clumsy. The camera’s built-in image stabilization works well on native and ‘classic’ Nikon glass. Battery life isn’t class-leading, and some improvements related to manual focus in video should be addressed, but overall Nikon has a winner in the Z6.
