Nikon Unveils New Full-Frame Cameras Z6 II and Z7 II

As promised last month, Nikon has officially unveiled the new and improved Nikon Z6 II and Nikon Z7 II full-frame mirrorless cameras: iterations on the first generation that add some important features like dual card slots, 4K/60p video capture, and improved autofocus performance.

In a few key ways, the Z6 II and Z7 II remain unchanged: they both use the same 24.5MP and 45.7MP BSI CMOS image sensors, respectively, like the Nikon Z6 and Nikon Z7, and are housed inside a very similar body with the same resolution EVF and exactly the same vari-angle (but not fully-articulating) LCD.

But that’s only because most of the upgrades are hidden away under the hood.

First and foremost, both cameras have been updated with Dual EXPEED 6 image processors, which enables both cameras to capture 4K/60p video (coming to the Z6 II via firmware in February 2021), ups the continuous shooting speed to 14fps (Z6 II) and 10fps (Z7 II), increase the size of the buffer, and promises improved autofocus performance, including expanded eye-detect and animal-detect (which now work in Wide-Area AF (L)) and better low-light autofocus.

Secondly, the much-joked-about card slot issue has been fixed: both cameras right now feature one XQD/CFexpress card slot and one UHS-II SD card slot so that client critical images-wedding photos, for example, can be written to two cards simultaneously.

Finally, one more loudly requested update is the addition of contacts for a proper battery grip, which will be released alongside the Z6 II and Z7 II. This grip, the MB-N11, will feature an additional control wheel and shutter button and takes two of the new-and-improved EN-EL16c batteries, which can also be charged over USB-C.
