Nikon Z 7 Product Tour


Night Light: Nikon Z 7 with Jamari Lior


Inspired by light. Z mount.


Big mount. Big impact.

The wide 55 mm mount diameter means your Z series camera takes in more light. Just 16 mm between the mount and the camera’s full-frame image sensor means more of that light reaches the sensor.

Nikkor Z Noct S Line BK

Inspired by light.

From twilight blues to graphic shadows. The powerful optical design of Nikon Z mount lenses, combined with the wide mount, gives you the power to work magic with the light.


Incredible detail. Phenomenal focus.

The back-illuminated 45.7 MP full-frame CMOS sensor with focal-plane phase-detection AF captures razor-sharp images.


Beyond fast

The blazing EXPEED 6 image processor delivers images with low noise and stunning dynamic range at both high and low ISO values.



Meet the challenge of ultra-high pixel counts with phenomenal precision. Follow your intuition all the way to the edge.


Create widely

Stay sharp with ultra-wide autofocus (AF) coverage across 90 % of the frame. Combined with the incredible focusing power of Nikon Z mount lenses, even Subjects at the edge of the frame are easily detected.


Focus freely

The AF system spots movement instantly. Even small or fast-moving subjects are tracked with absolute precision in any light. And you can use Pinpoint AF mode to hone in on the smallest details.


Inside the light

Exposure metering down to -4 EV is available when shooting with a lens that has a maximum aperture of f/2 or faster.


Capture that expression

An intelligent Face-Detection-AF processor detects and holds faces, even when the subject briefly looks away.



In-camera five-axis optical Vibration Reduction (VR) compensates for camera shake in five directions. Stills stay sharp. Video is steady.



Sport Mode delivers a stable viewfinder image when shooting exceptionally fast action, or when panning. When shooting video, the five-axis optical VR works with electronic VR to deliver incredibly steady footage.


Five-stop advantage

Keep pace with the action, and the light. The in-camera five-axis optical VR lets you shoot up to five stops slower than otherwise possible.²


Reveal it all


Mesmerising action

Record full-frame 4K/UHD movies at 30p. Achieve enthralling slow motion with richly detailed Full HD movies at up to 120p. You can easily capture still frames while filming in 4K or Full HD.


High resolution

Oversampling from 8K enables 4K footage with spectacular fineness and detail. The fast EXPEED 6 processor ensures beautifully clean files, remarkably free of noise, moiré, and false colour.


Beautiful control

Bright Nikon Z mount lenses offer silent autofocus and exquisite bokeh. And you can get an assist from in-camera focus peaking as you manually rack focus through a scene.


Stable motion

AF speed and AF tracking sensitivity can be set during movie recording. The incredible focusing power of Nikon Z mount lenses reduces the unwanted effects of focus breathing, and focus shift when zooming.


10-bit N-Log

Create character. Record at a high 10-bit depth and retrieve 4x more information than with a standard 8-bit recording, giving you maximum image quality for editing and grading. Activate View Assist to see a standard image with simple grading compensation.


Timecode output

Stay in tune. Record timecode in drop-frame or non-drop-frame formats, and output via 10-bit HDMI. The Z 7 is Atomos Open Protocol compatible: you can sync the start/stop of HDMI movie recording via your external recorder. Or via the camera.


Active D-lighting

Balance the light. In-camera Active D-Lighting balances lights and shadows in high-contrast scenes. Perfect for footage that needs to be ready to go as soon as you're wrapped.


RAW video

Edit and grade footage with RAW video data from the camera sensor. The Nikon Z 7 can output a 12-bit RAW video stream over HDMI to an external recorder such as the Atomos Ninja V.³ ⁴ This functionality can be activated at a Nikon service centre.


ProRes RAW

The video stream is recorded as ProRes RAW.⁵ Ideal for HDR workflows, you get maximum flexibility when grading, and extended detail in bright and dark areas.



Aspherical glass elements and protective coatings prevent flare, reflections, and dirt from limiting your view. Benefit from high visibility at night, and clear views in bright light.



The large, clear OLED EVF reproduces colours naturally and handles motion smoothly. Sharp, stable images make composition comfortable—even if you’re panning quickly or have zoomed in to confirm focus.



The EVF can display images as they’ll look with settings applied—or you can go with a natural image, similar to that of an optical viewfinder. You can overlay key shooting information to aid composition in either view.



A tough yet lightweight magnesium alloy body and extensive weather sealing are this camera’s ticket to anywhere. The high-precision shutter has been tested for 200,000 cycles. The grip is deep, comfortable, and secure.



Find the angles on the high-resolution tilting touchscreen. Easily swipe back and forth when reviewing images on the high-resolution tilt touchscreen, and double-tap a portion of any image to see a 100 % view of the image area.



With key buttons and controls right where you want them, every response quickly becomes second nature. If you’re used to working with a DSLR, the top LCD display panel will make you feel at home.

One adapter. Endless inspiration.

Shoot with F-mount NIKKOR lenses and a Nikon Z camera. The FTZ Mount Adapter lets you use your F-mount lenses with no loss of image quality.


Speed up work flow with CFexpress

CFexpress Type B cards are supported on the Nikon Z 6 and Z 7⁶. Benefit from lightning-fast re-write speeds and blazing data transfer from camera to computer. Make light work of large files.


Connect to a smart device

Use the built-in Wi-Fi® and Bluetooth® to quickly connect to any smart device with SnapBridge. Instantly share JPEGs. Shoot stills and video remotely.


Connect to a computer

Wirelessly transfer JPEG and RAW images smoothly in Station mode or Access Point mode. Use the optional WT-7A wireless transmitter for wired/wireless LAN over greater distances.
