Nikon Z6 Review

The Nikon Z6 is a well-built full-frame mirrorless camera that produces excellent stills and 4K video. Autofocus is reliable most of the time, including during burst shooting, though selecting a subject on which to track is clumsy. The camera’s built-in image stabilization works well on native and ‘classic’ Nikon glass. Battery life isn’t class-leading, and some improvements related to manual focus in video should be addressed, but overall Nikon has a winner in the Z6.

Nikon Z6 review

The Nikon Z6 is always going to be somewhat overshadowed by the more powerful and higher-resolution Z7, but actually it’s a much more versatile camera, as well as being much more affordable. On paper it could easily come across as being a little bit dull but worthy; in practice its finesse, performance and image quality are just awesome. Every camera has flaws and weaknesses, but the Z6 almost squeezes them out of existence.

Nikon Z6 review

Nikon certainly hasn’t held back with the Z6, and any worries that it would miss the mark are dispelled as soon as you pick it up. Until now we’d have had little hesitation in recommending Sony’s Alpha A7 III if you were in the market for a well-specced full-frame camera at around the $2,000 / £2,000 price point, but the Nikon Z6 is in many ways the more compelling option.

Nikon Z6 review: The best full-frame mirrorless camera for video

Image quality and colors from the 24.5-megapixel sensor is excellent, and your images and video are more likely to be sharp and smooth thanks to the 5-axis in-body stabilization. Autofocus tracking can be a bit slow, and the single XQD card slot is unfortunate. But if you’re looking at Sony’s A7 III, especially for video, you should take a hard look at the Nikon Z6, too.

Nikon Z6 review

Despite having fewer megapixels than the Z7, Nikon’s Z6 is the better camera for most of us.

Nikon Z 6

The Nikon Z 6 is the company’s high-speed, full-frame camera with a 24MP sensor and a class-leading 12fps burst rate. It’s a strong debut thanks to excellent ergonomics, in-body stabilization, and 4K video.

Nikon Z6 Review

The Nikon Z6 is a brilliant new full-frame mirrorless all-rounder. If you’re trying to decide between it and the Z7, you need to consider what kind of photographer you are.

Nikon Z6 Review

We were extremely impressed by the Z 7, and the Z 6 impresses just as much – albeit in different ways. For the price, you get a fantastic camera and we can see this jumping straight to the top of many amateur and enthusiast photographers wishlists – and perhaps even finding a place in a pro’s kitbag too.

Nikon Z 6 Review

The Z6 is a great price for a full-frame camera with so many features. I think that it’s the camera that many Nikon photographers have been holding out for. It combines the handling that you expect from a Nikon DSLR with some great mirrorless camera advantages.

Review: Nikon Z6

All things considered, the Nikon Z6 is a decent enough camera, albeit one that Nikon should have brought to market quite some time ago.

Nikon Z6 Review

The Nikon Z6 offers a 24mp full-frame sensor in a more compact mirrorless camera body, with a high-resolution electronic viewfinder, and high-speed continuous shooting at 12fps. There are currently three lenses available for the camera that help keep the camera system relatively compact, and the camera delivers great image quality, with excellent noise performance.

Nikon Z6 review

Arguably the most well considered and capable of any full-frame mirrorless camera on the market. Nikon has got the lens mount right, the quality right and, despite strong competition from Sony’s well-established range and Panasonic’s forthcoming S1, we think any photographer would be mad to not give the Z6 a look in.
