The long awaited successor to the Nikon Z 7, the all-new Nikon Z7II is a full-frame mirrorless masterpiece that embodies dual processors, improved low light performance, superior video shooting capability and various welcome additions such as dual card slots. While designed with a larger Z mount that works with the NIKKOR Z line lenses, the Z 7II is also compatible with the Mount Adapter FTZ that allows it to be used with NIKKOR F-mount lenses. The camera now also welcomes a number of third-party add-ons and accessories. Let’s take a closer look at the top five features of the all-new Nikon Z 7II.

1. 45.7 MP FX-Format BSI CMOS Sensor

The Z7II comes equipped with a 45.7MP BSI CMOS sensor that gives the camera stellar high-resolution shooting capability, alongside terrific low-light image quality. Back-illuminated design of the CMOS sensor is another highlight of the camera, which allows it to produce high-sensitivity output and reduced noise, even while shooting at a high ISO.

2. Dual EXPEED 6 Processors

The flagship full-frame mirrorless camera from Nikon comes with not one, but two EXPEED 6 image processing engines. As a result, the camera gets an increased buffer capacity, and can capture roughly thrice as many images the Z7 could do in a single burst of continuous shooting. The abundance of image processing power owed to the dual EXPEED 6 processors allows the Z 7II to continuously shoot up to 50 consecutive frames at 10 fps.

3. UHD 4K Video Recording

The uber-capable image processors and the powerful sensor make the Z 7II capable of capturing both stills and videos of top quality. The mirrorless camera comes loaded with a slew of advanced video functionalities, including but not limited to UHD 4K recording up to 60p, full HD 1080p recording up to 120p, and N-log gamma for flat-looking footage to produce HDR-ready videos. You can also record audio using the built-in microphone or use an external mic through the 3.5mm stereo jack available on the Z 7II.

4. Hybrid Autofocus System

The Z 7II leverages both contrast and phase detection, giving you a nuanced hybrid autofocus system for both stills and videos with 493 AF points covering nearly 90 percent of the image sensor, both horizontally and vertically. Both single (AF-S) and continuous (AF-C) come with a wide range of AF point selection modes, giving you complete freedom to capture stunning stills and videos. Besides human eye-detection autofocus, the Z 7II also offers animal-eye detection autofocus, which makes it perfect for wildlife photography.

5. Dual Card Slots

The Z 7II comes with dual card slots that work with XQD, CFexpress, and other SD-cards, while also being UHS-II compliant. Although XQD cards are not in popular use, they are still made compatible on the Z 7II to aid in practicality for those who would still like to use their faster XQD cards. The functionality to use two cards on the go helps you capture more stills and video footage without having to limit yourself due to memory size restrictions, or having to transfer data too frequently.

Be it for the improved processing power or the sheer capability to shoot stunning videos, the Z 7II is an ideal companion for veterans and aspiring photographers alike.
