Your camera, your style
A bigger mount. What a bright idea
More than mirrorless.
Our vision has always been to create cameras and lenses that capture more light. More light means more detail. More speed. More possibilities. The Z 7 brings that vision to life (and then some). Combining the advantages of a lightweight mirrorless design, a revolutionary new full-frame lens mount and matched lenses, a Nikon designed 45.7MP image sensor and seamless integration with Nikon’s DSLR system—including the NIKKOR lenses you love—the Z 7 is a camera unlike any before it. And yet, it’s unmistakably a Nikon. This is mirrorless reinvented.

Feels Like a Nikon
As comfortable and familiar as an old friend.
New NIKKOR Z Lenses
Empowered by the larger Z Mount and shorter 16mm flange focal distance, NIKKOR Z lenses gather more light and break traditional rules of the “sweet spot”. Forget about stopping down for maximum sharpness—NIKKOR Z are at their best and deliver corner-to-corner sharpness even at their widest aperture.
Legendary F-Mount NIKKOR Lenses
Greater performance from the lenses you love.
493-Point Hybrid AF System
Focus on what matters.
493-Point On-Sensor PDAF
4932 on-sensor AF points cover 90% of the frame (approx.) horizontally and vertically. Subjects are acquired quickly when they enter the frame and tracked throughout the frame, even to the far edges.
New Hybrid Autofocus
Using an AF algorithm optimized for its FX-format sensor, Z 7 automatically switches between focal-plane phase-detect AF and contrast-detect AF to fine-tune focus. The light-shielding phase detection pixels are carefully arranged on the sensor to preserve light, ensuring accurate AF even in dim lighting.
New Subject Tracking
Whether shooting eye-level with the EVF or in Live View with the LCD, Auto Area AF smoothly tracks your subject. When shooting portraits for example the system pays attention to the upper body, too, maintaining focus position when your subject briefly turns away from the camera or moves out of view.
Eye-Detection AF is a powerful tool for capturing portraits that tracks and locks focus on your subject’s eye not only with AF-S (Single AF) mode, but also with AF-C (Continuous AF) mode—especially useful when your subject keeps changing their pose. Eye-Detection AF is also capable of intelligently recognizing the eyes of multiple people in the frame, giving you the freedom to choose which person and eye to focus on and can even remain locked on eyes that become partially or temporarily obstructed.
New Animal Detection AF
Capture still images when focus has been acquired on a dog or cat's eye, even in situations that were previously difficult for auto-area AF. When shooting video dog or cat’s face can be detected. Requires Firmware 3.0.
Pure Viewing Experience
Just like the real thing.
New 3.6M-Dot Quad VGA Viewfinder
Take an ultra-high resolution QUAD VGA display, add Nikon optics for magnification, including Aspherical lens elements and Fluorine coating, and you’ve got an EVF experience unlike any before it. Minimal lag and blackout, 100% frame coverage (approx.), corner-to-corner clarity and sharp magnification. It has the feel of an optical viewfinder, and you can use it for both stills and videos.
New Icon-Driven Info Display
All relevant info is displayed out of the way and is easy on the eyes. A new customizable menu appears right inside the viewfinder, so you can quickly adjust settings without ever taking your eye off the shot. Focus modes, white balance, exposure, VR settings, Picture Controls, and more—all within eye’s reach. Preview exposure and white balance changes, image stabilization and depth-of-field in real time. You can even review the photo or video you just shot.
In-Body VR Image Stabilization
Steady as it goes.
Up To 5 Stops Of VR Image Stabilization
Powerful in-body 5-axis VR image stabilization is applied to whatever NIKKOR Z lens you’re using. Up to five stops3 of image stabilization in up to five directions—yaw, pitch, roll, X and Y. During video recording, optical VR is combined with electronic VR (e-VR) for even steadier shots. Normal VR mode for static subjects. Sports VR for moving subjects.
VR For F-Mount NIKKOR Lenses
For the first time, F-Mount NIKKOR lenses like the AF-S NIKKOR 105mm f/1.4E ED or AF-S NIKKOR 14-24mm f/2.8G ED can benefit from in-body 3-axis VR.4 NIKKOR lenses that already have VR, like the AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8E FL ED VR, get the added benefit of roll axis for a total of 3-axis VR. Just add the optional Mount Adapter FTZ and you’re good to go.
Portable Cinematic Powerhouse
Made for video.
Full Frame 4K Ultra HD
Capture cinematic 16:9 4K UHD/30p video in full-frame using the total width and resolution of the Z 7’s backside-illuminated sensor. Clean output at high ISO. Zero crop factor with full-frame NIKKOR Z and F-Mount NIKKOR lenses. Full-pixel readout in DX Mode for sharper 4K footage with rich information equivalent to 5K. Focus Peaking in both 4K and 1080p recordings. Simultaneous 8MP stills.5 This is 4K as it was meant to be.
Travel through time.
New N-Log With View Assist
Maximum detail, viewable in-camera.
New 10-Bit HDMI Output
What’s the difference between 8-bit and 10-bit recording? Only about 1 billion more colors (64X more data)—so much more flexibility in post-processing. Record directly to an optional external recorder with 10-bit output via HDMI, the industry standard. Simultaneously record uncompressed 8-bit 4K UHD movie files to the memory card and an external recorder. (Atomos Open Protocol supported for syncing start/stop.)
Smooth, Quiet AF
The speed, smoothness and accuracy of the Z 7’s AF system is ideal for video. It’s virtually silent, very little chance it will be picked up by an external mic. When used with NIKKOR Z lenses, “breathing” and “wobbling” are all but eliminated. You can even touch to focus using the LCD for fast transitions between subjects.
9 FPS Shooting
Shoot up to 9 FPS at full resolution (12-bit RAW or JPEG) with minimal shooting noise7 and without the need for an external battery pack. For complete silence, switch to Silent Mode and shoot up to 8 FPS with no mechanical noise.
ISO 64 (Expandable to ISO 32)
Increased light capture means you can shoot at lower sensitivity more often. And the lower the sensitivity, the greater the detail, color range and contrast.
ISO 25,600 (Expandable to 102,400)
More light gathering potential, flawless EXPEED 6 noise reduction and new NIKKOR Z lenses free you to explore the darker side of light with entirely new brilliance.
Connections? It’s got a few.
Transfer images to compatible smart devices 2X faster than previously possible—up to 25 mbps. Choose between the 5 GHz and 2.4 GHz bands for optimum transfer speeds.8
Built-In Bluetooth Low Energy
The Z 7 can automatically connect whenever your compatible smart device is in range. Send original resolution JPEGs or have the camera automatically transfer 2MB versions of your photos as you shoot them.
With SnapBridge version 2.5 or greater, you can also use your compatible smartphone as a remote monitor and controller. Touch focus, adjust settings like exposure mode, white balance and more, then fire the shutter.
New USB Battery Charging
For the first time in a full-frame Nikon camera, you can charge the Z 7’s new EN-EL15b battery in the camera through a standard USB-C connection—from your computer, a wall outlet or other charging device.9 Already have EN-EL15a/EN-EL15 batteries?10 They work with the Z 7, too.
New Connectivity Option
Connect to a Mac or PC over Wi-Fi and wirelessly transfer RAW, JPEG and movie files. Two modes available: Camera Access Point mode, for connecting directly to a PC, and Station (STA) mode, for connecting over a router.11
