    Firmware 3.0 is great

    Posted by RonNikon on March 2, 2020

    Upgraded my Z6 to 3.0 firmware and love it the focus tracking is excellent and easy to activate by using the Fn1 button. The animal eye AF works very well too. I´m getting nice sharp photos of my dog, it Locks right on his eyes!

    upgrade to Z6 and Z7

    Posted by tognow on March 2, 2020

    I have loved the 2 cameras since the purchase! The updates have been amazing - I go to Photo shows imaging USA and WPPI and here all the hype about Sony and I am EXTREMELY happy with my purchase ... I am still waiting for more pro lenses as this would help Nikon obtain more market place. Having to use an adapter for some of my lenses are still no fun. but the new focus is amazing and I have shot it side by side with Sony and Nikon has won every time thus far!

    Improved EYE AF - but still not good enough

    Posted by wildlifeshooter on March 2, 2020

    I appreciate the frequent firmware upgrades - with 3.0 eye AF improves, but still not good enough. Tracks a little too slow for moving subject and person has to be fairly close for eye to pickup... getting better, just not there yet. Overall use / quality of camera is excellent, especially with native lenses

    Gobsmacked

    Posted by Servant1storyteller on February 9, 2020

    Wow. I´ve shot Pentax since i was about 12 starting with the old Spotmatic. Have had tons of fun and some really great images with Pentax—including an honorable mention in a NatGeo Traveler contest. But I never could get the sharpness i wanted. Since I will be doing portraits and videos now for one of my clients, I did months of research and chose the Z6. OMG. Took a beginner photog class last weekend with friends to start getting familiar with my Z6. Being able to ´see´´ the exposure TTL. OMG. The small size and everything within a finger´s reach—I´m still struggling to re-calibrate my hand around it because it´s too easy. The photo quality just messing around for one day—OMG. As my first Nikon, wow-the Z6 is so danged smart. The website is so inspirational. Wow. I hold in my hand the power to change the world through real stories.

    50 Years Plus

    Posted by F3HP on February 9, 2020

    I purchased my first Nikon camera in 1969 - an FTn. It was succeeded by generations of new Nikon models and most recently, the Z6. Wow! Handling the Z6 for the first time reminds me of my first encounter with the superb F3HP. It feels ´just-right´.

    Using the Z6 for the first time was a breeze. The menus were familiar and the touch-screen made adjustments easy. The low-light capability using the 24-70 f/4 kit lens was impressive. A photo of a bookcase in a room lit by fading twilight produced a impressive image. From a distance of 25 feet, the titles and small print on the spine of every book was clearly defined. The color of each book was perfect. The exposure was spot-on.

    I was apprehensive about using the FTZ adapter. I tried it out with several different lens. My FX lens worked perfectly. I tried several DX lens. Again, no problem. The viewfinder provides a full, bright image with DX lens. A notable stand-out was the AF-P 50-200 DX lens - fast focus and very sharp. Mounted on the Z6/FTZ, DX lens make a very comfortable and light-weight combination.

    Is the Z6 perfect? No. There are a few small things I would like to tweak. But it is the best Nikon camera I have used in the last 50 years. Would I recommend it to a friend? Absolutely. Without reservation.

    Amazing Video

    Posted by Jorbanead123 on February 8, 2020

    I bought this as a video camera first, stills camera second, and I love the way video looks on this camera. I upgraded from a Lumix G85 (Little brother of the GH5) and WOW the video is so much better, even on the internal recording. The other thing I love is the option to upgrade. If you ever want to get more serious about video work, you can get an external recorder for 10-bit N-Log video. AND if you want to upgrade even further, you can even get 12-bit ProRes RAW video! NO other camera in this class has this. 5 years ago you would have to pay three times as much for those features.

    Love my Z 7 so much I bought a Z 6 too!

    Posted by HandsoffmyNikon on January 30, 2020

    I bought a Z 7 and I couldn´t be happier with it. I use it mostly for landscapes at static wildlife because of the high resolution. I read a couple of reviews that were totally of base, claiming the Z 6 didn´t focus well in low light. Nothing could be further from the truth! Maybe turn on low light assist? My Z 7 focuses in low light like a champ, practically in the dark. I bought the Z 6 to get the absolute best quality out of the video capabilities. To get this kind of quality in a dedicated full frame video camera would cost MANY times more than the Z 6. It is amazing!

    Outstanding picture quality

    Posted by SATXPhoto on January 22, 2020

    I purchased the Z6 along with the 24-70mm kit lens and the FTZ adapter. The Z6 delivers outstanding picture quality right out of the camera. I have used Nikon DSLRs for many years and have a significant investment in Nikon lenses. Being able to use them with the FTZ adapter was one of the prime reasons I stayed with Nikon when entering the mirrorless age. So far no issue with any of my F mount lenses including non-Nikon F mounts.. The electronic viewfinder will change the way you shoot. ´´Chimping´´ is no longer required. What you see in the viewfinder is what is delivered. Even exposure compensation is seen through the viewfinder. The ability to shoot silently is a plus. One tip: You have shoot a 12-bit file to get the 12 fps on continuous high. Very pleased with Z6. Glad I purchased it.

    Versatile lens with great photography and video capabilities

    Posted by Jukon on December 26, 2019

    I am new to full frame mirrorless cameras and photography overall for that matter, but i must say that the nikkor 24-70 mm f4 lens is such a joy to work with. This lens goes from wide angle to zoom with ease and with an aperture of f4 can still take awesome portraits with blown out backgrounds. Shooting at 4k at 24 frames per second could not be more crisp. The nikkor 24-70 is a very well balanced lens and is able to go from portrait to landscape photography with no problem. I feel that this lens handles low light situations without a problem.
