Nikon Z6 Price in US

One of two full-frame mirrorless cameras that Nikon released in August of 2018, the Nikon Z6 is one of those cameras. It is quite comparable to its older sibling, the Z7, with the primary distinctions being the sensor (24MP as opposed to 46MP) and the lower resolution that comes along with it. Because of the lower resolution sensor, the Z6 only features 273 phase-detect autofocus points, compared to 493 in the Z5. Aside from that, you have the same tough body, the same (mostly) recognizable controls, and access to a limited but soon-to-grow library of Z-mount lenses.

Putting aside the technical specifications, the Z6 is aimed at a very different demographic than the Z7. The second is for individuals who are interested in really high resolution and would also be thinking about purchasing cameras such as the Nikon D850 and Sony a7R III. The Z6, on the other hand, is designed to be more enticing to individuals who are wanting to upgrade from crop-sensor cameras or full-frame DSLRs from an earlier generation.

In the end, the Z6 will be judged in comparison to its DSLR brother or sister, the D750 (which is getting on in years, but still very capable). The two cameras have distinctive physical forms, but their operations are very comparable; the primary distinctions lie in the focusing modes and video capabilities of the devices.

If those specifications seem somewhat familiar, it’s because they’re virtually exactly the same as those of the Z7; the primary variations between the two being the resolution and the number of AF points. When shooting bursts, you are able to take more photographs in each burst thanks to the lower resolution sensor, which allows the camera to reach a maximum frame rate of 12 frames per second, up from 9 frames per second. Aside from that, you’re getting the same design and features that can be found in the Z6’s older brother, which is sold at a slightly higher price.

The body of the Z6 may be purchased separately for $1999, or it can be purchased along with the Nikkor Z 24-70mm F4 S lens for $2599. Nikon will take $100 off the price of the adaptor if you purchase the FTZ (F-to-Z mount) adapter, which costs $249, at the same time.

The Nikon Z6 is a full-frame mirrorless camera that has a solid build and is capable of shooting high-quality still images and 4K video. Autofocus is reliable the most majority of the time, particularly while shooting in burst mode; nevertheless, picking a subject on which to track might be cumbersome. The image stabilization that is incorporated into the camera performs admirably with both native and “traditional” Nikon lens. Even if the Z6’s battery life isn’t the best in its class and there are some things that might be improved about how manual focus works in video, Nikon has created a winner with this model.
