The enhanced Dual EXPEED 6 image-processing engine helps maximize the high resolving power of NIKKOR Z and NIKKOR F lenses, along with the camera’s high-pixel-count image sensor performance. It’s designed to bring more sharpness to your images while effectively reducing noise, allowing the camera to achieve a maximum standard sensitivity of ISO 25,600. The engine now supports a mid-range sharpening parameter* for Picture Control, Nikon’s unique image creation system, which works together with the existing sharpening and clarity parameters to effectively enhance sharpness for both stills and videos. The Dual EXPEED 6 Image Processors also offers diffraction compensation, which helps capture landscapes and cityscapes crisply even at slow apertures. And with the introduction of Creative Picture Controls, it enables you to create your own style more easily than ever before. It also offers faster image processing, more buffer capacity and overall more speed.
At the heart of the Nikon Z 7II Mirrorless Camera is a new FX-format backside illumination CMOS sensor, featuring 45.7 effective megapixels and focal-plane phase-detection AF pixels. It takes full advantage of NIKKOR Z lenses´ unparalleled optical performance, bringing a new level of sharpness to your images. What’s more, by increasing the volume of signal accumulated in the photodiodes as much as possible, the Nikon Z 7II achieves a standard sensitivity range of ISO 64-25,600 (expandable to ISO 32-102,400 equivalent) with advanced image processing by the Dual EXPEED 6. Focal-plane phase-detection AF pixels are efficiently distributed throughout the sensor, allowing it to provide accurate AF over a wide area of the frame. Meanwhile, the sensor’s copper-wiring circuits enable rapid read-out of AF information and the huge volume of data from its 45.7 effective megapixels, while realizing continuous shooting at up to 10 fps.
In addition to the conventional Picture Control, the Nikon Z 7II features 20 creative options that can be used to give an artistic look to your images instantly, encouraging you to explore your creativity further. The effect level is adjustable from 0 to 100 in increments of 11 steps. It is also possible to create custom Picture Controls by altering each preset’s parameters — such as sharpening and contrast — in-camera, or using Picture Control Utility 2 on your computer. Creative Picture Controls are available in all exposure modes, as well as movie recording.
The Nikon Z 7II incorporates an in-camera vibration reduction (VR) mechanism, providing an effect equivalent to a shutter speed up to approx. 5.0 stops faster. It detects camera shake using the image’s motion vector information as well as the gyro sensor, and then drives the vibration reduction unit to offer compensation in five directions: yaw, pitch, X, Y, and roll, which is likely to be noticeable in videos. The VR system also works with NIKKOR F lenses, including non-VR lenses (When using the optional mount adaptor.
To experience the true potential of the Z 7II’s 45.7 effective megapixels and the high resolution of the NIKKOR Z lenses, extremely sharp focus is essential. The Nikon Z 7II adopts a newly developed hybrid AF system that offers extremely wide coverage — approx. 90% of the frame both horizontally and vertically with 493 focus points. Using an AF algorithm that’s optimized for the FX-Format sensor, it achieves focus on the subject, utilizing focal-plane phase-detection AF or contrast-detect AF as appropriate. Thanks to its wide coverage, it can also focus on subjects in the periphery, bringing a new level of creative freedom. What’s more, the NIKKOR Z lenses are designed to meet a stricter AF standard, ensuring high-resolution performance and superior AF accuracy. And when shooting stills of dark scenes, activating the camera’s low-light AF function offers AF down to -4.5 EV.
The Nikon Z 7II Camera incorporates a range of auto controls to help you obtain optimum results, using the Advanced Scene Recognition System. The camera uses the image sensor to recognize various conditions of the scene, then utilizes this information to ensure accuracy in auto exposure, auto focus, auto white balance and other auto controls, including “natural light auto” white balance and Picture Control Auto. The system also makes it possible to achieve effective flicker reduction — both in still photography and movie recording.
Photographers want a compact camera system, but sometimes this means sacrificing operability. Nikon tackled this problem head-on, to create a system that delivers superior operability, in spite of its compact size. The camera’s grip is designed for firm grasp and takes into account the comfortable positioning of even the little finger. The operational controls, including a sub-selector, AF-ON button, ISO button and exposure compensation button, are carefully arranged to allow quick operation using the right hand in a shooting posture. A handy top display panel enables users to confirm various information at a glance. And the metallic rings around the Z mount and the root of NIKKOR Z lenses have the same look and feel, to provide a sense of unity as a system.
The Nikon Z 7II Mirrorless Camera employs a highly accurate shutter unit capable of speeds of 1/8000 s. To ensure durability, it uses the same brake mechanism and shutter blade material adopted by the D850, and has been tested for 200,000 cycles while actually loaded in the camera. It also incorporates a leaf spring switch for the shutter-release button, the same as the D850, allowing it to respond to a delicate touch for fewer missed opportunities.
The Nikon Z 7II supports continuous shooting at a maximum of 10 fps. To facilitate the capture of moving subjects, it features wide AF coverage, and a focus prediction algorithm that Nikon has refined over years of DSLR camera development.
When shooting a scene containing various subjects at different focus distances, or creating specimen pictures of insects and flowers, photographers may want to bring everything into sharp focus. The Nikon Z 7II’s focus shift photography function enables you to shoot sequences of up to 300 frames, while gradually and automatically shifting focus position from the start point to infinity. The shutter release interval and the focus step width can be selected. Moreover, the Nikon Z 7II employs a new peaking stack image function that creates a monochrome preview image automatically to confirm the areas in focus before combining the pictures — making focus stacking more convenient than ever.
The Nikon Z7 II camera supports both CFexpress (Type B) and SD memory cards, enabling fast reading and writing of the vast data generated from its high-pixel-count image sensor. Additionally, It also supports XQD memory cards.
Direct connection to a computer — Built-in Wi-Fi SnapBridge enriches your image experience by connecting your camera and smart device* seamlessly. In addition to connection via Bluetooth®, the new SnapBridge ver. 2.5 offers direct connection via built-in Wi-Fi®. It makes it easier to transfer images (JPEG) and videos to a smart device and to shoot remotely.
The Nikon Z 7II´s AF system allows you to capture videos with confidence. Featuring more AF points, now with 493 AF points that cover a wide area of the frame, giving you greater creative freedom in your compositions. Hybrid AF — developed specifically for the Z system — utilizes a new AF algorithm and provides focus performance that’s optimized for movies, while reducing wobbling. A choice of four AF-area modes for videos — single-point AF, wide-area AF (S/L) and auto-area AF — brings added flexibility. When used together with NIKKOR Z lenses, which employ a rigorous standard for AF accuracy, it’s possible to achieve even more precise focus. Your movies will show exceptional sharpness in the focused area, even when played back on a huge monitor or screen. What’s more, the quieter AF of NIKKOR Z lenses prevents noise being recorded. You can also utilize AF-S, AF-I, AF-P NIKKOR F lenses with AF via the Mount Adapter FTZ.
The Nikon Z 7II now allows you to film breathtaking 4K UHD/60p videos that make full use of the image area of FX format. When shooting in DX-based movie format, it can output sharper 4K UHD video employing rich information equivalent to 5K, thanks to its full-pixel readout. Used together with NIKKOR Z lenses, it delivers even higher-resolution movies. What’s more, Active D-Lighting is now available in 4K UHD, preserving details in highlights and shadows even when shooting under harsh sunlight. The camera also introduces Full HD 120p/100p recording, including audio capture, providing more options in post production.
The Nikon Z 7II utilizes a highly accurate gyro sensor and original algorithm that Nikon has refined for conventional lens VR. This compensates for vibration on five axes: yaw, pitch, X, Y, and roll, which is likely to be noticeable in videos. By choosing the “Sport” VR mode, vibration that might occur during movie recording can be effectively suppressed. It can also work together as a hybrid VR system with electronic vibration reduction, available in 4K UHD and Full HD, whether you use NIKKOR Z lenses or NIKKOR F lenses. This delivers an even more apparent effect. The VR unit employs a lock mechanism that automatically fixes the image sensor when the camera is switched off, preventing the VR unit from damage by accidental impacts when carrying the camera around. This mechanism also makes it possible to avoid even the tiniest alteration in composition during time-lapse and interval timer photography.
