True multimedia powerhouse.
This is what a hybrid still and video mirrorless camera is meant to be. 24.5MP BSI sensor and high-speed shooting with the buffer capacity to match. 4K Ultra HD video at 60p*. Outstanding low-light capabilities. Next-generation autofocus. The power of dual processors. Two card slots. Tons of creative features. Flexible power options. Compatibility with a vertical battery grip. Wireless connectivity with smartphones and laptops and so much more.
More of Everything.
The Z 6II builds on the extreme versatility of the Z mirrorless platform with more autofocus options, more video capabilities, more low light performance, more buffer, more frames per second…more of everything you want in a hybrid still and video camera.
Amplify your versatility.
For the first time in a Nikon camera, the Z 6II is powered by not one, but two EXPEED 6 processing engines. They work together for faster image processing, more buffer capacity and more overall speed.
Dual card slots.
Now you have options. One slot accepts CFExpress (Type B) and XQD cards. The other slot accepts standard SD cards. Use the format you prefer. Or use both slots and separate video and still files or RAW and JPEG, create a backup or maximize your onboard storage.
Experience 14 FPS* continuous shooting at full resolution—RAW or JPG—with a buffer 3.5X larger than the previous generation and minimal EVF blackout between shots.
4K Ultra HD at 60p.
Record incredibly detailed 4K Ultra HD footage with full-pixel readout. Capture in your choice of frame rates including ultra smooth 60p* with an upcoming firmware upgrade.
More autofocus power.
Optimized for stills, high-speed sequences and video work, the Z 6II’s 273-point Hybrid AF system brings performance improvements, new options for Eye-Detection AF and easier selecting of AF modes.
See in the dark.
With a big leap forward in low-light autofocus performance, the Z 6II can find your subject in half the available light as its predecessor. Keep shooting into the evening with the same fast, accurate AF performance.
The AF system’s 90% frame coverage lets you compose the way you want, from the start. Either manually choose one of 273 focus points across the frame, or let subject tracking automatically select the focus points based on where your subject is within the frame—even at the far edges.
Eye-Detection. Better than ever.
Nikon’s intelligent Eye-Detection AF quickly identifies and locks onto eyes—either humans, dogs or cats—for properly focused portraits. The Z 6II builds on the system with accuracy enhancements and more flexibility.
Right on target.
Now you can use Wide-Area (L) Mode to set boundaries for eye detection. Select an area of the frame, and the Z 6II will only look for eyes there—great for busy scenes, group shots and pet portraits.
Capture the eyes. On Video.
All of these features of Eye-Detection AF are also available during video recording. Easily track moving subjects and keep footage looking sharp and professional on the eyes.
The Z 6II builds on the Z 6’s formidable video capabilities and might just be Nikon’s most versatile video camera yet. All the benefits of the Z mirrorless system plus 4K Ultra HD at 60p, Full HD at 120p, 4K time-lapse and so much more.
Keep it simple. Or go big.
When keeping it simple, record your 4K footage in-camera on a CFexpress, XQD or SD card. Step things up by attaching an external recorder (sold separately) to capture 10-bit N-Log or HDR (HLG) footage. Or go all the way with a paid firmware upgrade and compatible external recorder and output 12-bit ProRes RAW or Blackmagic RAW format via HDMI.
Slow it way down.
Slow down time and capture every detail of movement with 120p Full HD footage that can be played back at 30p, 25p or 24p. Add silky smooth slow motion sequences to your videos to add emphasis and drama or highlight movement.
The stability you need.
Powerful 5-axis VR image stabilization keeps your photos sharp and your videos steady—up to five stops in up to five directions* (yaw, pitch, roll, X and Y). Handheld shooting made easy.
Reverse focus rotation.
If you’ve been using non-Nikon lenses for video work, the Z 6II lets you reverse the focus ring rotation on NIKKOR Z lenses. Your muscle memory will thank you.
Create. In camera.
Built-in inspiration for multimedia creators.
Combine up to 10 exposures into one visionary composition. Compose and blend—right in the viewfinder—while shooting, or go back later and combine shots with in-camera Retouch features.
Paint with light. Track the paths of stars. Capture movement like never before with long exposures up to 900-seconds. Use your smartphone to trigger the shutter to avoid camera vibrations.
Focus Shift Shooting
The Z 6II will take a series of up to 300 photos, each with an incrementally adjusted focus position. Use third-party software to combine (focus stack) the photos into a single image with surreal depth of field and sharpness.
Making time-lapse sequences is as easy as setting up the camera and hitting record. The Z 6II will create a 4K time-lapse movie and save all the full resolution stills (when used with interval timer shooting).
Tweak. Shoot. Create.
Add another element of uniqueness and artistry to your photos and videos with 20 Creative Picture Controls, all visible in real time while you shoot, either through the viewfinder or on the tilting touchscreen display.
That just-right feel.
Like all Nikon cameras, the Z 6II handles like a dream. A deep grip design. Balanced weight. Sturdy build with smart button placement. Even the EVF is thoughtfully extended to prevent your nose from pressing up against the back of the camera.
Tough. As expected.
The Z 6II is ready for what’s next. Its skeleton is forged from Magnesium Alloy for an optimal balance of strength and lightness. Its exterior is fully weather sealed to keep dust, grime and moisture out. Don’t baby this baby.
More clarity. Less blackout.
Experience the best view through the Z 6II’s advanced viewfinder with minimal blackout between shots during high speed shooting (Continuous H). Nikon optics magnify the 3.6M-dot Quad-VGA EVF, and what you see is how your shot will look. Exposure, ISO, white balance, Picture Control and creative filters are all applied in real-time. You can customize what information gets shown in the viewfinder—or hide it all for a pure view.
Make it yours.
Prefer back button focus? Often switch between Picture Controls? Need a quick way to select focus area? No problem. Add your favorite functions to the i-Menu then access them from the LCD or EVF. Customize Fn buttons or reassign buttons you don’t typically use to activate your go-to modes, menus or settings. Navigating the camera’s intuitive, clean user interface is a breeze.
Help. Right at your fingertips.
Not sure what a setting does? Just tap the (?) button and a brief explanation will pop up in the viewfinder or on the LCD. It’s like having a quick reference guide built into your camera.
Share photos and videos with a client on the spot. Quickly post a great shot to your feed. Remotely control the Z 6II. However you use it, you’ll love the convenience of Nikon’s ever-evolving SnapBridge app.
When you can’t be behind the lens, pull out your compatible smartphone and use it to control the Z 6II. See what the camera sees, change settings like aperture, shutter speed and white balance, then remotely fire the shutter or start and stop recording.
Any file. Any format.
Transfer full resolution RAW images, JPGs and even 4K video files right to your phone, wirelessly. Then use your favorite apps for editing, adding filters and sharing.
Upgrade on the go.

Brilliant. By design.
Fine tune. Manual focus ring.
Dedicated to one crucial function: giving you tactile, precision control of focus when you want it.
A lens with a curved, non-spherical surface. Used to reduce aberrations and enable a more compact lens size. Aspherical lenses minimize coma and other types of lens aberrations, even when used at the widest aperture. They are particularly useful in correcting distortion in wide-angle lenses and help contribute to a lighter, more compact design by reducing the number of standard (spherical) elements necessary. Aspherical lens elements correct these distortions by continuously changing the refractive index from the center of the lens.
NIKKOR Z lenses use a stepping motor for fast, accurate, smooth, quiet autofocus with reduced wobbling. This quiet drive system makes the lenses ideal for use when shooting video.
An anti-reflective coating developed by Nikon and used in conjunction with Nano Crystal Coat to further reduce ghost and flare effects caused by incident light entering the lens vertically. This allows for the outstandingly clear capture of images even when a light source is located within the frame.
Nano Crystal Coat
An anti-reflective coating developed by Nikon that virtually eliminates internal lens element reflections across a wide range of wavelengths. Nano Crystal Coat solves ghost effects caused by red light and effectively reduces ghost and flare caused by light entering the lens diagonally.
ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) Glass
An optical glass developed by Nikon that is used with normal optical glass in telephoto lenses to obtain optimum correction of chromatic aberrations.
Aspherical – Extra-low Dispersion Glass Elements
An ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass element that features the characteristics of an Aspheric glass element for a more compact size lens. Like Aspherical lenses, AS-ED lens elements minimize coma and other types of lens aberrations, even when used at the widest aperture by continuously changing the refractive index from the center of the lens. The AS-ED lens elements are optical glass developed by Nikon to obtain optimum correction of chromatic aberrations.
A NIKKOR lens in which only the internal lens group shifts during focusing. Thus, IF NIKKORS do not change in size during AF operation, allowing for compact, lightweight lenses capable of closer focusing distances. These lenses will be designated with the abbreviation IF on the lens barrel.
