・ The best video performance in Nikon history to meet the needs of various video production
Efficient heat dissipation design allows the world’s longest video of about 125 minutes at 8K UHD / 30p to be stored in the camera body.
Can be recorded on the card. Combined with the S-Line1’s NIKKOR Z lens, which boasts excellent resolution, the screen
Demonstrates high depiction performance in every corner. It also supports 4K UHD / 120p / 60p / 30p. Even with 4K UHD / 120p video
Since you can shoot without screen cropping, you can edit videos with the same angle of view even if you shoot at different frame rates.
Is possible. Supports Nikon’s original “NLog” and HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) recording with 10bit. In addition, record
It also supports the format “ProRes 422 HQ” to meet a wide range of video production needs. In addition, 9 types
Subject detection also supports video recording. In order to continue to meet the video production needs of users, future fa
With the software update, the in-camera recording function of 12bit RAW video including over 8K / 60p over 8K
We are planning to support the installation and improvement of operability and functions in movie shooting.
・ The strongest AF performance and ultra-high-speed shooting in Nikon history that reliably captures the decisive moments of various subjects
In addition to traditional people, dogs, and cats, new algorithms with excellent algorithms using newly developed deep learning
Detects 9 types of subjects, the largest number in the world, corresponding to the subjects of birds, bicycles, motorcycles, cars, trains, and airplanes.
And is possible. Furthermore, if the subject detection is set to auto, all these subjects will be inspected without the hassle of changing the settings.
You can put it out. “Eye AF” can detect smaller eyes than ever before. Eyes and face detected such as back view
If it is not possible, it will automatically detect the head and torso. Digital SLR camera in AF area mode
It is the first Nikon mirrorless camera to be equipped with the popular “3D-tracking” that has been installed for many years. Of movement
It is possible to keep focusing on the target subject even in intense situations. In addition, “Dynamic AF” is also available.
Equipped with different focus points (S / M / L), it is ideal for composing and shooting. Still image shooting
In the shadows, the world’s fastest 120 frames / sec continuous shooting is possible with “High Speed ​​Frame Capture +”.
You can capture moments that cannot be captured with the naked eye with a high pixel count of approximately 11 million pixels.
・ New technology “Real-Live Viewfinder” that goes beyond the view of the conventional viewfinder
Dual story by linking the newly developed stacked CMOS sensor and the new image processing engine “EXPEED 7”
Display video for electronic viewfinder (EVF) and image monitor, and still image data for recording
It is possible to process data individually at the same time. Display the same image so that the viewfinder image does not disappear.
Unlike the conventional blackout-free shooting, the actual movement of the subject is always displayed. There is no display skipping
Therefore, you can check the movement of the subject without interruption. When performing continuous shooting repeatedly in a short time
Because it is displayed smoothly even when it is set, it is also suitable for shooting fast-moving subjects such as sports.
Don’t miss a momentary photo opportunity. In addition, the viewfinder supports the world’s highest * 3000cd / m2 brightness.
Adopts a new Quad-VGA panel. You can easily check the subject even when shooting outdoors in strong sunlight.
・ Operability and reliability to support professional video expression
Equipped with Nikon’s first vertical and horizontal 4-axis tilt type image monitor, high angle and horizontal position regardless of vertical or horizontal position
Achieves high operability for low-angle shooting. Also, when shooting vertically, users of still image live view
Since the interface automatically switches to vertical display, it is easy to check the display and operate. In addition, “Nikon D6”

Achieves equivalent Nikon’s highest class robustness, dustproof and drip-proof performance, and cold resistance that operates even at -10 ° C.
Supports shooting in the harsh environment of professional use. With the fastest scan rate in the world
Rolling shutter distortion is minimized in the world, and mechanical shutterless is realized. Life of mechanical shutter
You can use it without worrying about it. In addition, the camera shake mechanism inside the body is equipped with a lock, which is inadvertent when the power is turned off.
In order to prevent the sir from shaking, it suppresses damage to the sensor due to shaking when driving on rough roads.
・ 45.71 million effective pixels that bring out the performance of the NIKKOR Z lens and provide an overwhelming sense of resolution.
-Supports high-efficiency RAW that achieves image quality equivalent to uncompressed RAW with a file size of approximately 1/3 or less
・ High-speed continuous shooting that can shoot more than 1000 frames at about 20 frames per second even in JPEG format and RAW format
・ In addition to adopting the world’s first double coat as a sensor dust countermeasure, it is equipped with a sensor shield.
・ The combination of ISO 64 and a shutter speed of 1/32000 seconds expands the expression area of ​​a bright lens.
-Equipped with a “silent mode” that is effective for reducing the noise inside the body and the image stabilization (VR) sound of the lens. stage
Quiet shooting is possible even at shooting sites such as press conferences, weddings, etc.
・ Set the volume of the electronic shutter sound that informs the subject of the shooting timing in 3 steps, such as in portrait shooting.
・ CFexpress (Type B) pair suitable for high-speed writing, suitable for 8K UHD video shooting and high-speed continuous shooting with high pixels
-Equipped with a wired LAN using 1000 BASE-T and a built-in wireless LAN to support many communication functions
-While adopting a design with an integrated vertical grip, the volume is reduced by about 20% compared to the “Nikon D6”.
