After a long wait, Nikon announces to us Z6 and Z7. However, this time, we are focus on the Nikon Z7 camera. Although, if you want to know more features and specifications of both cameras, you can do it in our portal, just stay with us! A resolution of 45.7 Megapixels, is a lot for photography. Nevertheless, many features make the Nikon Z7 best full-frame mirrorless camera. The Z7 comes with many features that play to its advantage, making it one of the most significant releases of 2018. For example, most of the existing Nikon kit is compatible with z7.
Nikon has managed to design his strategy very well. Since he launched the first mirrorless camera the Z6; a cheaper one. The Nikon Z7 will undoubtedly be a higher price. But it will capture the attention of the most demanding professional photographers. To begin, we could summarize that this camera includes several features of the D850. However, a smaller and more compact body, and many other details that have been added.
Nikon Z7 – Sensor
Since we already explore some of the main features of the Z7, let us take a deep closer look at some of its components. First, let us start with the sensor. This camera offers us a full-frame CMOS sensor and an effective pixel count of 45.7 Mp. The sensor also has backlit illuminated technology inside the design. Initially, it was thought that this sensor would be like that of the D850. However, the truth is that no. One of the differences is in the backlit design, to achieve a higher quality light collection.
As far as we know, it will have a great capacity to control noise. The backlit sensors are a selection that we usually see in compact cameras, and although it is quite common, it had only been used in a full-frame camera for the Sony A7R II. Therefore, Nikon has chosen to follow a path that has not been explored too much, betting on obtaining good results.
Another important fact is that RAW and JPEG images can be obtained, as can Nikon reflex cameras.
The Nikon Z7 offers 493 focus points with a hybrid phase-detection AF system. Something else we can highlight that it has an approximate 90% coverage of the horizontal and vertical frames. We know that because it is a mirrorless camera, the Nikon Z7 does not have the same type of phase-detection AF module found in an SLR.
However, this is not a limitation for this camera, since it has these phase-detection AF pixels integrated into the sensor. Therefore, it is a perfect camera to track moving subjects and change position focus when recording videos. You can set the focus speed and the tracking sensitivity through the menus. In addition, it has the option to combine different depths of field and play with different perspectives.
The adapter will accept itself, around 360 NIKKOR lenses with support for automatic exposure. However, the number is reduced to 93 if you want auto exposure and autofocus to be maintained. Although, this number would cover almost the entire range of existing lenses.
