More than mirrorless.
Nikon 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

New Nikkor Z Lenses

The next generation of Nikkor glass.

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.

When used with the optional Mount Adapter FTZ, more than 90 F-Mount Nikkor lenses maintain all of their sharpness, resolving power and functionality and gain the advantages of the Z 7’s in-body VR, silent shooting, PDAF focusing system*, 4K video and more. Approximately 360 F-Mount Nikkor lenses can be used. Compatibility as only Nikon can deliver.

Explore Mount Adapter FTZ *Full AF/AE supported when using FX or DX AF-S Type G/D/E, AF-P type G/E, AF-I type D and AF-S / AF-I Teleconverters

493-Point Hybrid AF System

Focus on what matters.

493-Point On-Sensor PDAF

The points of the story.

493* 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.

*435 on-sensor PDAF when used for video in FX-based movie format with Single-Point AF.

New Hybrid Autofocus

The best of both worlds.

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

Follow a face in the crowd.

Whether shooting eye-level with the EVF or in Live View with the LCD, Auto Area AF smoothly tracks your subject's face—even when it’s one among many. 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.

Pure Viewing Experience

Just like the real thing.

New 3.6M-Dot Quad VGA Viewfinder

Oh, what a view.

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

Keep your eye on the prize.

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

Rock steady. Tack sharp.

Powerful in-body 5-axis VR image stabilization is applied to whatever Nikkor Z lens you’re using. Up to five stops* 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.

*Based on CIPA Standards. This value is achieved when the NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/4 S lens is attached, with zoom set at the maximum telephoto position.

VR for F-Mount Nikkor Lenses

Your favorite lenses now have VR*.

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. 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.

*Requires use of the Mount Adapter FTZ

Portable Cinematic Powerhouse

Made for video.

Full Frame 4K Ultra HD

Amazing productions start here.

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 recording. Simultaneous 8MP stills*. This is 4K as it was meant to be.

Ultimate Image Quality

Create your masterpiece with ours.

9 FPS Shooting

The speed to succeed.

Shoot up to 9 FPS at full resolution (12-bit RAW or JPEG) with minimal shooting noise* 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.

*If an F-Mount Nikkor lens is used with the Mount Adapter FTZ, aperture, VR driving and initial lens driving sounds may occur, for instance, when turning on the camera.

ISO 64 (Expandable to ISO 32)

Lower sensitivity. Greater sensibility.

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)

Cloak yourself in darkness.

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.
