Nikon Z6 in-depth analysis: ISO, battery life, focusing and more

Nikon Z6 at ISO 5,000

Nikon Z6 in-depth analysis by Fran Russo (Website | Instagram):

Battery problem? Nooo! More than 5,500 pictures.

I have read in several places that the battery only allows 300 pictures. This is a complete lie. With a single battery, I am able to shoot more than 5,500 photographs without recharging.

Surprisingly, on the flipside of this incredible leap in DSLR imaging technology and functional innovations, there’s an evident lag in terms of— how reliably the media recorded with DSLRs can be preserved, without getting corrupt or lost.
