All-around performance. All-around amazing.
The Z 6 is perhaps the most adaptable camera we’ve ever created. It’s at the sweet spot of speed, resolution and low-light performance. This is mirrorless versatility as only Nikon could create.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Here are some of the negatives that I expected going in and I have taken no stars off for:
-Less than stellar battery life
-XQD card slot (I had to pay 120 dollars for my card, my sd cards are 20-30 dollars normally)
-needs an adapter for f mount lens
-3rd party batteries don't work (yet perhaps some will be engineered in the future)
Here are the problems that I have had that I did not expect starting with the most annoying and it really distracts from the user experience massively:
- Every time I put it on a 2-second timer delay and the camera times out to sleep mode it wakes up out of it, and every time I shut off the camera in 2-second timer delay mode it turns on out of it! Mind you I exclusively shoot on a tripod on a 2-second timer delay for night shots to give the camera/tripod 2 seconds to settle down after touching it and have no handshake. Every time I have to hit the button and reset it and this is a pain at -20 to -40f in Fairbanks, Alaska in the winter when I don't want my fingers to freeze! My Nikon D610 has a dial for timer delay on the top left and never changes unless I tell it to! This alone is worth minus 2 stars for me, I am considering returning the camera or selling it over this issue. I guess I could get a remote shutter release instead... but this brings me to the next issue.
(If somehow there is a way to have the timer delay stay permanently activated let me know in the comments and I'll add back on 1-2 stars despite the other issues) If this is not the case, Nikon do a firmware update and fix this, for God's sake!
-My 3rd party speed flash won't work on it, it feels like Nikon specifically engineered its new camera to not allow the user to use 3rd party accessories and force you to buy a several hundred dollar flash over my perfectly fine 30 dollar fash. Does this mean if I buy a 3rd party remote shutter release it also won't work to solve the lack of a permanent 2-second timer delay mode? My workaround has been to hand hold the flash (so I don't cause camera shake when triggering it) and manually trigger it. This is not ideal and freezes my fingers further in the sub-arctic of Alaska. I use the flash for aurora portraits.
-Every time the camera goes to sleep or is shut off the aperture rings stop down to the smallest aperture. I shoot wide open or almost wide open on all my shots so when I turn it back on the aperture blades open up again, will this cause excessive wear and tear on the aperture blades and motor and break my lenses? I do not know but it worries me. I wish the blades stayed in sleep mode exactly where they were when it went to sleep / was shut off at.
-Lightroom will not detect any of my lenses for the lens profile correction (I am only using the adapter). This includes sigma, rokinon, and tamron. I have not tested to see if Lightroom will detect my lenses shot on a Nikon brand lens through the adapter yet. This isn't that big of a deal but all the annoying things add up to a frustrating user experience.
-For extreme low light situations, the digital viewfinder is a negative. You can use the optical one on the Nikon D610 to compose a shot with almost zero light by using subtle silhouettes and shadows but with the Z6 you get all black if its dark enough. This means you have to take a few test shots and adjust your camera to the right composition based on them, this further chews up the already weak battery performance and takes up more time which causes fingers to freeze more in the cold.
First, this is truly a Nikon. Build quality if outstanding, and the look and feel is 100% Nikon. If you've used a Nikon DSLR, you'l be right at home here. First and foremost, picture quality is just outstanding. Detailed images, with natural colors, especially skin tones. I've always thought Nikon's colors were a standout, and the Z6 continues in this tradition.
There's tons of options for shooting different effects, and the Z6 expands to include many additional filter effects I've not seen on prior high-end DSLRs (you can find these under the "Set Picture Control" option, most easily reached by pressing the "i" button on the back. The touch-screen is a great feature here, it makes navigation from the "i" button quite natural and easy. I didn't notice any banding or moire effects in various outdoor shots at smaller apertures (shooting both the 24-70 Z lens and a number of my older AF-S lense via the excellent FTZ adapter). Hi-ISO performance is stunning. Even at 12,600, there's amazingly little noise in the Z6 images. In sum, the Z6 produces excellent images in either Raw or out-of-camera JPEGs.
Highlights with the Z6 controls and usage are the huge, bright no-lag electronic viewfinder. This is a joy to use! Even in very-dark scenes, the viewfinder shows a bright, clear image, almost like night vision for very dark night scenes. There is truly no discernable lag here, either.
Nikon *finally* added U1-U2-U3 settings to the program dial, a much better system than the "shooting banks" from prior high-end offerings. This allows you to setup 3 different camera states (I use "landscape", "portrait", and "action") and recall each with a simple turn of the dial. So much easier than the old method.
Many early reviews (especially of the Z7) raised some issues with autofocus, especially in tracking modes of faster-moving subjects. I've just not had issues in this area in a few days of usage of the Z6. The single point modes are great, and cover nearly the entire image area. There's a "nub" controller on the back, perfectly placed under my right thumb, that allows you to move this point easily over your subject. The Z6 was tack-sharp in nearly every photo using this method, especially with the native 24-70 Z lens. The auto modes worked well, too. It's not quite as quick to pickup less-contrasty subject in AF-C modes compared to my D500, but it's pretty close. There is 3D subject-tracking mode under "auto". Press the center OK button, and a white box appears. Move this over your subject (by either re-framing or the nub control), and half-press the shutter. The Z6 will now track this subject throughout the frame. Give a full shutter press when you want to take the shot. The framing box will continue to track the subject, so you can keep taking shots as you like. Work's great. The Z6 uses a combination of shape and color info to recognize the subject, and follows it throughout the frame. To reset the box, you have to hit "ok" again, and you can start again. Easier to use than describe here, actually.
There's just so much more to say about the Z6. I haven't dived into video modes, but all the other reviews say this is an extremely capable video camera. In-body vibration reduction (called IBIS - in body image stabilization) is another game changer on older lenses that lack this feature. Focus peaking (courtesy of the electronic view finder) means use of older, manual focus lenses is quite easy! Between IBIS and focus peaking, those older Nikon telephotos are starting to look like a real bargain.
Mirrorless really is a game changer, and Nikon's first full-frame versions are an outstanding advance. So many features here: in-body stabilization, autofocus covering nearly the entire frame, an outstanding, high-res and no-lag viewfinder, tons of picture and shooting options, it all adds up to a highly recommended camera in a great, compact form.
I'm not selling my D810 or D500 just yet, but the Z6 has become my go-to camera for most usage (I'm still shooting wildlife on the D500). Well done, Nikon!
