A peak moment frozen in a dramatic still image. A beautiful, flowing sequence captured in cinematic 4K UHD video. The new Nikon Z6II, an upgrade of the Z 6 all-rounder, gives you both. Harnessing Dual EXPEED 6 image-processing engines, the Z 6II allows continuous shooting at approx. 14 fps*1 with extended buffer. Eye-Detection and Animal-Detection AF are available in both stills and videos. A variety of video recording options now includes 10-bit HDR (HLG) to meet diverse needs. What’s more, the dual memory card slots and new MB-N11 Battery Pack*2 give you all this versatility in a dependable package. The Z 6II provides a solid hybrid solution for multimedia creators.
Easier to focus on the intended subject – Advanced hybrid AF system
The Z 6II’s 273-point hybrid AF system is enhanced to let you focus on the intended subject more easily than the Z 6, even in busy scenes. Eye-Detection AF and Animal-Detection AF are now available in wide-area AF (L) in addition to auto-area AF. What’s more, the camera saves the last focus position when it is switched off, allowing you to resume your shoot right where you left off*1. Just like the Z 6, low-light AF is also available, enabling auto focusing down to -6 EV*2. Together with NIKKOR Z lenses, that are designed to meet an incredibly strict AF standard, the Z 6II offers superb AF accuracy.
Increased focusing control – Enhanced Eye- and Animal-Detection AF
Eye-Detection AF is convenient for shooting portraits where the model is constantly changing poses, and Animal-Detection AF is effective whether you’re capturing cats playing with bristle grass or dogs relaxing indoors. With the Z 6II, capturing your intended subject is easier, even in a crowd. In addition to auto-area AF, these functions are now available in wide-area AF (L), allowing easier focusing only on your intended subject within the focus area. As they are now included in the i menu, quick switching is also possible. Also, Eye-Detection AF, combined with face-detection and upper-body detection technologies, allows you to keep focusing on a human subject even when they temporarily turn their back.
Exceptional image quality, even under low light – Backside illumination CMOS sensor featuring ISO 100-51200 and 24.5 effective megapixels
Using its 24.5 megapixels, the Nikon Z6 II Camera images are clear, sharp and beautiful even under low light. The FX-format backside illumination CMOS sensor, together with the EXPEED 6 image-processing engine achieves a wide standard sensitivity range of ISO 100-51200 (expandable to ISO 50-204800 equivalent).
Dependable data backup for serious users – Dual slots for CFexpress and UHS-II SD memory cards
The Z 6II is equipped with dual card slots which support reliable CFexpress (Type B) cards and readily available UHS-II SD cards – both realize fast data transfer. The card slot for CFexpress (Type B) supports PCI Express (PCIe) Gen3, enabling even speedier data writing than the Z 6. They offer a variety of storage options, including the ability to store the same data onto two cards for instant backup or record RAW and JPEG copies onto separate cards simultaneously.
Save or boost energy while shooting – Power-saving mode and USB power delivery
Mirrorless cameras have typically consumed a lot of battery power. However, the Z 6II offers improvements to let you keep shooting for longer. A power-saving mode*1 is now available for situations where you want to be economical with energy usage. In addition to USB charging when the camera is off, USB power delivery*2 during shooting is now possible from a mobile battery*3 or computer via the optional UC-E25 USB Cable. This helps in situations such as outdoor time-lapse shooting, letting you continue shooting for a long period of time.
Powerful, 5.0-stop compensation for diverse shooting scenarios – In-camera VR
The Nikon Z6II With Z 24-70mm F4 features in-camera vibration reduction (VR) that offers an effect equivalent to a shutter speed up to approx. 5.0 stops*1 faster. It detects camera shake using the image’s motion vector information as well as the gyro sensor, and then drives the VR unit to offer compensation in five directions: yaw, pitch, X, Y, and roll. Use the Normal VR mode for reducing camera shake during handheld still shooting, while Sport VR is best utilized to stabilize the image when tracking moving subjects in stills and for video. When recording video with a fixed angle of view, Normal VR can be combined with electronic VR*2 for even steadier shots. VR also works with NIKKOR F lenses, including non-VR lenses*3.
