Amsterdam, The Netherlands, 22nd April 2021: Nikon is pleased to announce that nine of its products have received the "Red Dot Award: Product Design 2021" – including its flagship DSLR camera, the D6, as well as for its second generation mirrorless cameras, the Z 7II and Z 6II.

Entries from around 60 countries were submitted and were judged by a panel of recognised design specialists from around the world. Products were assessed based on aspects such as their innovation, functionality, ergonomics and durability.

The winning products will be showcased in an online exhibition, held from June 21st 2021. They will also feature at the special exhibition “Design on Stage”, held from June 22nd 2021 at the Red Dot Design Museum in Essen, Germany.

Nikon’s “Red Dot Award: Product Design 2021” winning products include:

Nikon D6 Full-frame Digital SLR Camera

The D6 is Nikon's digital SLR flagship camera. It provides the necessary support for professional sports photographers and photojournalists to perform at their best and is equipped with the most powerful AF system in Nikon history. In combination with the rich line up of NIKKOR F lenses, photographers are able to capture decisive, once-in-a-lifetime shots with more accuracy.

Nikon Z 7II and Nikon Z 6II Full-frame Mirrorless Cameras, MB-N11 Power Battery Pack

The Z 7II and Z 6II are the second generation of mirrorless cameras to follow the Z 7 and Z 6, for which the large-diameter Z mount was adopted. Reliability and operability have been improved with the adoption of Dual EXPEED 6, which increases the number of shots with a single burst of continuous shooting as well as enabling support of dual card slots, meeting the needs of users. 

The MB-N11 Power Battery Pack, ideal for vertical shooting, increases the number of possible shots while offering a firm and comfortable hold. The MB-N11 Power Battery Pack supports a hot-swap system and is well suited for extended use, such as when recording video or capturing shots for time-lapse videos.

NIKKOR Z f/2.8 Zoom Lens Series for Mirrorless Cameras

The NIKKOR Z 14-24mm f/2.8 S, NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S and NIKKOR Z 70-200mm f/2.8 VR S are zoom lenses that maintain a constant fast maximum aperture of f/2.8 throughout the entire zoom range. Adoption of a large-diameter mount has enabled high flexibility in lens design, greatly improving optical performance. These lenses cover a broad range of focal lengths —14 mm to 200 mm— expanding the possibilities of imaging expression in a wide array of scenes, from landscape and portrait, to wildlife.

10x25 STABILIZED Binoculars

10x25 STABILIZED are the first compact binoculars of Nikon to be equipped with the STABILIZED function. The compact and lightweight double-hinge foldable body is suitable for not only long-time but also one-handed use.

ECLIPSE Ei Educational Microscope

The ECLIPSE Ei, educational microscope, is designed for intuitive operation and an improved learning experience. Its Online Guide provides quick and easy access to tutorials, empowering students to learn independently.
