Create the images you want to see in the world
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.
New now. New tomorrow.
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.
Ready for your night shoot
This camera’s incredible light-gathering capabilities free you to create in any light. You get clean, full-frame images across the ultra-wide ISO range when shooting stills, and clean output when shooting video. Low-light AF now works down to -6 EV with an f/2 (or faster) lens—you’ll find focus even under the quarter-moon light.
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.
Dual card slots for a fluid workflow
With two memory card slots at your disposal, you have room to adapt to any workflow. Separate stills from movies, or RAW from JPEG. Copy files between cards. Configure slots for overflow and backup. You can use UHS-II SD cards in one slot, and XQD cards or the latest ultra-fast CFexpress cards in the other.
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.
The optional Power Battery Pack MB-N11 features integrated controls for vertical shooting. And it lets you hot-swap batteries without losing power.
A multimedia powerhouse
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.
RAW over HDMI
Maximum control in post. Faster transfer rates. The Z 6II lets you connect to a compatible ATOMOS external recorder to export the video as ProRes RAW®, which preserves all the data from the camera’s full-frame sensor in smaller files.
10-Bit HDMI output
Gain more flexibility when colour grading. Recording video at a high 10-bit depth retrieves billions of more colours than standard 8-bit recording. With the Z 6II, you can record 10-bit output directly to an external recorder via HDMI.
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.
Pound those dusty streets. Brave those mountain paths. Shoot down at the water’s edge. With a super-strong, lightweight magnesium-alloy frame, the Z 6II is easy to carry and tough enough to handle any location. Fully sealed against dust, dirt, and moisture, it will go wherever inspiration takes you.
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.
Update firmware via SnapBridge
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.
