    Super light yet Powerful Camera

    Posted by Satya Yerrapragada on December 1, 2023

    It’s a super camera , I love Nikon - the only camera company - or the company makes only cameras.When I wanted to upgrade to D850 , from D810 - have waited for some time to decide - and finally bought the z7 II.I have attended 2 events after that , and have received lots of appreciation, and recently added 24-120 f/4 and the combination was a super hit .The camera was so light , still managing the f lenses I have to use with the Ftz adapter .I found a solution for battery power - attach a powepack., while it charges the battery too . The issue is that the internal battery getting charged only when the camera is off , it’s fine though . May be there should be a firmware upgrade ! Thank you Nikon .

    A work-a-holic body and lighter than D850.

    Posted by Karen H on November 29, 2023

    Upgraded from my D850 with pleasure. Lighter and equally good in 99% of the categories I need it to be. Dynamic range is super vs Z7 and am very pleased. One thing I'd ask for is a ME 'final' img. in RAW format rather than JPG. D850 gave me RAW MEs. Hard to get over that, but I will persevere. Great camera, Nikon - thank you very much.

    Wonderful camera, but it does take a lot of battery power.

    Posted by Douglas Geiger on November 28, 2023

    My Z7II is really great and with the FTZII adapter, I can use all my old F-series Nikon lenses. Be warned, however, the Z7II uses up a lot of battery power (you cannot just look through the viewfinder and see any image without the camera being on), so use a Nikon MB-N10 battery pack and get several extra batteries (use the EN-EL15c). Also, the average JPG size I can get is around 13-14MBytes, so I really don't know how Nikon can claim its a 46-48Mb camera. Still, its way improved from my old D200.

    Fun camera and I still have much to learn

    Great camera, still learning many of the features and settings. Great pictures and I like the overall size compared to my old 850 :)

    Love its Weight and Size

    Posted by Kaye Hargis on November 10, 2023

    This is my second Z7ii. I love the size. Deciding the D850 was just too heavy for me, I purchased the Z7ii and, as I basically photograph stationary subjects, it has worked well for me. The times I photograph action, the Z7ii has not disappointed. The Z8 is now available and, as much as I would like its sensor capabilities, it is the size of the D850 although slightly lighter in weight. So, needing a backup camera, I purchased another Z7ii. Again, I love the size.

    Exceptional image quality in the full frame realm.

    Posted by Anonymous on October 22, 2023

    The Z7 II is years old by now, and everyone who cares about cameras/photography already knows it's autofocus wasn't up to the latest standards when it first entered the market. It's AF performance has been far outpaced by the Z9, and Z8 not to mention by camera's from other manufacturers. On that point, there have been a few occasions over the 2 plus years I've owned it, while photographing people that the AF has let me down. Given the amount of "keepers" I achieved despite the occasional frustration with AF, I think the AF is better than it's given credit for, but still not up to the bar Sony/Canon AF set. Shooting the Z7 II for approximately 2.5 years, I do not feel a need to upgrade (the itis!) for better autofocus. Not that I would mind better AF, but I get the shots I want to get just fine with the Z7 II. I shoot lots of landscape, nature, and portraits and after many clicks of the shutter, I'm still often dazzled by the image quality when I nail the shot. Marvelous dynamic range, incredible sharpness and detail, great color and tonality. The files are very malleable (to use a metal term) and manageable size wise. No, I certainly wouldn't choose this camera for dedicated sports photography but in a pinch, you'd be surprised. I recently shot a benefit five mile run and came away with many great shots. As I don't often shoot sports, or fast moving subjects, a lot of the shots I missed probably had more to do with my inexperience than a failure of the AF system. I'm positive someone with more experience would have gotten more useable shots than I did. I was happy with what I got and I delivered on what was asked of me, so the Z7 II came through in a genre that isn't it's forte. The image stabilization also works great. Again, probably not the best in the business, but I can get sharp shots hand held up to about 1.5 seconds give or take, and occasionally even slightly longer when I'm really going for it. I have pretty steady hands, most of the time. This camera has superb size and weight for use as a "walk around", or street photography camera. If you use one of the pancake style, or smaller lenses in the mirrorless lineup you can be fairly discreet on the street. The Z7 II fits well in my hand, is comfortable to use for an entire day out shooting, and is my perfect photography companion. I have spent all day out shooting with it attached to a strap without discomfort or complaint many times. I think it's also attractive as far as camera's go. It's no Hasselblad X2D in the looks department, but it's handsome nonetheless. The only desire I have for another (along side the Z7 II, not in place of it) camera is to own a digital medium format model. Why, if the Z7 is so good, you ask? For the 16 bit color depth, larger sensor size, different aspect ratio and in last place of priority, the 100MPs. Either the Hasselblad X2D100C, or the recently released FujiFilm GFX 100 II. Those, however are wants, not needs as the Z7 II gets the job done for me, and I think the sensor in it is one of the all time greats in full frame terms. Even if I got one of those medium format, 102MP cameras, I'd keep the Z7 II because it's that good when it comes to outright image quality, and I would not need 102MP of resolution all the time. Why write a review for a camera that's a few years old, and has outmoded/outdated AF? Because it's image quality is fantastic and at it's current price, is an absolute bargain in the best possible way. Happy shooting! Whichever brand/model camera you shoot with, I hope you are as happy with it as I am with the Z7 II.

    Elevating my photography game entering retirement

    Posted by Jack Haley on September 18, 2023

    Took a significant technological leap from my days using a film based SLR to the Z7ii. I finally have the time to learn this camera inside and out. So far I've captured some special sports and scenic photos that impressed . I chose the Z7ii based on its technology, its price point, and the potential to take my passion to new levels.

    Beyond happy!

    Posted by Julie Burks on August 23, 2023

    I had been contemplating the move from DSLR to mirrorless for a while, but didn't have a reason to switch until my D750's shutter stopped working. Sent the D750 into repair but couldn't stomach not having a camera for weeks, so I rented a Z6. Definitely was impressed! Then I did the research between the Z6ii and Z7ii and I the resolution upgrade of the Z7ii sold me for my type of photography (landscape and macro). I have been absolutely and totally impressed with the Z7ii!! Not only because of the amazing resolution, but also the touchscreen, more focus points... the feel... all of it. And! It is so nice to have a lens adapter so I don't have to reinvest in lenses. A great buy for sure!

    Great for concert photography

    Posted by Michelle Percival on August 18, 2023

    Love, love, love the low light capabilities! As a concert photographer, there has never been a better beast of a camera. I still love my 750s but I’m leaning on this z7 II more and more.
