    A true workhorse & great camera for the price.

    Posted by Altice on November 23, 2022

    I built a six figure business on the back of this product. It's not as user friendly as the higher end products, but then its price is quite reasonable for what it is. Autofocus system is probably going to be the biggest hangup for most users. However, if you invest some time with the product, like with any tool, its pros and cons become a part of what is beautiful about your creations.I've since moved on to the Z9, but even when I do step back to the Z6 I'm always happy with the product it produces.

    Can't Save Release Mode!

    Posted by Nathan Hadsall on March 17, 2022

    Love the camera, but very frustrating you can't save the release mode. I have to reset it every time I turn the camera on.

    A Really Neat Camera

    Posted by Touchdown on April 2, 2020

    A great, practical camera. Good low light. Good 4k video . Stabilization works. Auto focus, I can not tell you ( so far, all my lenses are ai-s from the last century). The silent shutter is fantastic, I use it always (except with studio flash). The battery seams to last longer than on my D500 (another great camera). The Z6 will just keeps firing single shots until the chip is full. The image sensor seams easier to clean than a DSLR sensor stuck down in the mirror box. Less and more even thermal noise with the Z6 because the sensor is not down in a box. I only wish the exposure time went to 15 minutes, not 30 seconds, which should be easily addressed in a firmware upgrade. This is the best camera I have ever used. Buy It!

    The best cameras Nikon has ever made

    Posted by SeeRad on March 17, 2020

    I´ve been a Nikon shooter since 1972. Cameras have to be judged in their time and against the competition. IMO, the Z6/Z7 and the S series lenses are presently the best of their kind and the best Nikon has ever produced.

    There was a bit of a learning curve as I hadn´t upgraded in a long time, but the process was more, ´´wow, it can do that!´´ than anything difficult or discouraging. The frequent firmware upgrades have been great. I´m getting results, often under difficult lighting conditions, that I´ve never been able to get before. I have a good collection of older Nikkor lenses and was sold by the FTZ adapter, but the reality is the S series lenses are so good that I only mount an older lens for very specialized situations.

    I´d love to say this camera is only for the experienced and would be wasted on a beginner, but its program modes let anybody get fantastic results right from the beginning. After that you can learn as much or as little as you like.

    It was a huge leap of faith to abandon my beloved dSLR mindset, but after a few months with my Z6, it would be impossible to go back.

    Just: wow!!

    Posted by Z6fanboy on March 13, 2020

    This thing is great! From the size and weight, to the tech inside, to the auto focus, to the eye detection, there is nothing I can complain about. I´m excited for the weather to break so I can get out and take more photos!!

    Getting better all the time

    Posted by Camperjoe on March 6, 2020

    The latest firmware update has made my Z6 much more useful. For most of the past year it has sat in its bag while its big brothers, D850, D750 and D500 got all the attention simply because last year the Z6 out of the box was awful at tracking a moving subject. Not so much any more. I believe my Z6 is going to see more and more action this year.
    Icing on the cake would´ve been if the Z6 had been designed to accept a battery grip with controls like almost every DSLR Nikon has ever sold. With a functional battery grip for me the Z6 would´ve been a grand slam homerun. Now it´s at least a solid double every time. I knew there was no such animal when I bought my Z6 and thought I could get used to it. I´m not there yet.

    Very good camera with some issues

    Posted by MCarter on March 6, 2020

    Well, firmware 3.0 was a nice update - suddenly my big monster 28-70 S-lens focuses well in video - not that I use video AF much, but usable AF is fantastic on a gimbal. IQ is good, and something about this camera - even straight off the card (without using an external recorder), green screen footage keys remarkably well with no edge artifacts. I just spent weeks keying 6K RED footage, and man, the Nikon 4K (and even 1080) keys clean and fast, even compressed from the card. My first day with this camera I shot an entire green screen video (link below) - I did a quick test in the morning and decided to go for it, glad I did.

    My biggest issue with the camera right now is the inability to monitor 100fps and up via HDMI. My review will be declined if I mention competing cameras that have this ability, but it doesn´t seem to be a unique feature, and being unable to monitor high frame rates - esp. on a crane or rig - is really a big issue for me. PLEASE Nikon, find a workaround for this!!!

    And one more feature I´d love to see is H265 recording. The bit rates possible with H265 can be double what they are with Nikon´s current compression. Many people don´t want to transcode, but it would be a great option to get the higher video frame rates up there.
