Opinion:After about 3/4 years with another Brand, I returned to Nikon.It was like coming home, always used to photograph with Nikon, I immediately managed to find the same sensations / Feeling that I had with the SLRs of the "yellow house". Coming to the so I appreciated the dynamic range of the machine, the files once set properly come out practically already affixed, they need very little PP. The controls are placed in the right place, they make it very easy to "work". At the current price and with the immediate discount at the checkout, it becomes a bargain!!!
Pros:Construction, ergonomics, sensor (ISO, dynamic range), EVF and LCD screen, IBIS, menu, lens compatibility (Z, FTZ and draft), weight
Cons:1 x XQD, commandless grip, sometimes WB and automatic viewfinder brightness, not innovative compared to the competition
Opinion:Starting from the construction quality, the teardown of lensrentals speaks clearly: robust, gaskets everywhere, an ML designed properly (I would add: except for the external tires, which unfortunately tend to spoil themselves too easily). The ergonomics are very good, the deep handle makes the grip firm, but for those with medium-large hands, it improves when used with an arca-swiss plate with the "extension cord" of the handle or with the grip (which unfortunately does not replicate any buttons, unlike the grip for the Z6/7 II). The unique XQD/CFExpress slot is, in my opinion, a potential impediment to professional use, however reliable such cards are (and also very fast ... and very expensive). The USB C interface and the ability to charge the EN-EL15C in-camera (unfortunately only on the II series you can charge while in use), as well as WI-FI/BLUETOOTH connectivity, are definitely an added value. The EVF, to which I had enormous prejudices, has instead proved to be a great friend: now I believe that the advantages over the optical viewfinder far outweigh its disadvantages. The sensor is exceptional, churns out wonderful files, with impressive high iso seal and dynamic range. The mechanical shutter is very quiet, but there is also the possibility to use it in fully electronic mode, which can come in handy on many occasions (remembering, however, the risk of banding with some light sources). It works very well with the FTZ and F-mount optics (Nikkor and recent third-party ones, unfortunately some older non-Nikon lenses give problems) adding not only stabilization to all, but also maximum precision in MAF, manual optics included (I assigned the zoom to 200% which is very useful when working on large openings, then there is obviously also the very useful focus peaking). Note: Focus confirmation does not work with all manual lenses, such as Zeiss ZF.2 implement AI-P "protocols" and do not communicate distance, so you won't have the indicator. The MAF in poor light conditions does not convince me much, but by enabling the appropriate option, the situation improves (although it suffers a somewhat marked slowdown). Eye detection works well, but not at Sony levels. I would have liked eye detection even in MF mode, it would be very useful with manual optics, as it would allow you to zoom directly on the subject's eye and focus (avoiding making the rounds of all maf points). The AF-C in car mode works surprisingly well, tested with both the 70-200 2.8 G2 Tamron and the 200-500 (which does not shine for AF and is an F5.6), gave me satisfaction (of course, we are not at the level of a flagship or a D500..). Z optics surprised me positively: I have the 24-70 F4 (wonderful...) and I tried the 85 1.8, the 50 1.8 and the 14-30, they are all slow in my "wish list". Let's also remember that the era of "Z Mount" lenses has just begun. In addition, the 16 mm pull makes the Z series ideal for having fun with vintage optics (making them stabilized and having the opportunity to focus with maximum precision). The lack of some buttons that I had become accustomed to on the D8XX series, is compensated by the highly customizable menu: "i" button and the ability to recall 12 functions, customizable "REC" button in "photo" mode etc. They say it's great for the video department too, but it's not my field and I don't have the skills to express myself. The battery, when used with "criterion" (preferring use in "viewfinder priority"), has a very good life in my opinion for an ML (I exceeded 700 shots). All in all I consider the Z6 a very successful ML and able to give great satisfaction. Grade 9+.
Pros:It has everything you could want on a camera.
Opinion:Great viewfinder, great dynamic range, great response to high iso, in short, a camera designed in large. Bought then right now make a big deal. A brief comment on the second memory slot that is not there, amateur photos are no use doing the back up on a second tab of the shots taken and I can still get to know a professional who lost his files on a z6. Good light at all
Cons:Nothing for a photoadamator. One slot for professionals.
Opinion:I've had it for a few months now and I've done the update. It's a great camera! I'm only using it with the 24-70mm f4 and it's really fun and handy. Very sharp and detailed file, even too much. The color comes out after the RAW PP in an incredible way. The focus even in the dark is perfect. The battery lasts a long time. The registration buffet is very fast. The weight is low. The viewfinder is incredible. When I got a few photos wrong it was just for white balance, but out of 1000 I'll have wrong 3-4. It is a camera to recommend; I don't know what differences there are with the new Z6II but with the falling price it is to buy. Update: I realized that the photos with the wrong bw were made with nd Gobe filter, so it has nothing to do with the camera.
Opinion:I hadn't photographed (for good) for twenty years, after doing it with passion for almost thirty years, and I filmed following the gift received of a small mirrorless Sony, a6000 with a pair of optics. Imagine those movies where someone is catapulted from the past, for a mysterious reason, and finds himself in a current and completely different world.... I felt a little bit like that. Photographing with new technologies, compared to the film machines I used, has revived my passion. After a while, though, I realized that the kind of soap they had given me had some limitations. I decided to retool myself a little more conveniently. The first machine considered was Sony a7III. Excellent camera for my needs, but that didn't distract me from the idea of having another bar of soap in my hand. Great throughout Sony, but no feeling. I tried a friend's mirrorless Canon, but it gave me the idea that it gave me a little less than the Sony a7III (completely personal idea) and still with this camera no particular feeling. This lack of feeling with the Canons is the same as I experienced in the 90s when I considered them, nothing to compare for the quality, but they never felt well in my hand. And then it happened, I saw her and I was very impressed. Nikonista for all my thirty years of photographic practice, I crossed the Z6. Very different camera from the film reflexes I used and yet... it seems meant to be used by me. Nikon 100%, sturdy, exceptional sight, first optical 24-70 f/4 simply amazing (even for the price in kit). You will understand that mine is not a real opinion... mine is the display of a love, a real lightning strike. Twenty years ago all Nikon cameras were constantly in my wish, even though I had several. Today, even since I'm not a kid anymore, I can only confirm that it will be so for life.
