“The new cameras are the first full-frame mirrorless cameras from Nikon“
Nikon unveiled its first full-frame mirrorless cameras, the Nikon Z7 and the Z6, just last month. Today, the brand finally launched these cameras in India at an event in New Delhi. Apart from the main attraction, the brand also launched three new NIKKOR Z lenses. The new lenses include a standard zoom NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/4 S, wide-angle prime NIKKOR Z 35mm f/1.8 S and standard Prime NIKKOR Z 50mm f/1.8 S. Notably, the new lenses come with a larger-diameter mount in comparison to earlier models. Finally, Nikon also unveiled its Mount Adapter FTZ in the country.
Coming back to the Nikon Z7 and the Z6, the new full-frame mirrorless cameras come with a new backside illumination full-frame, Nikon FX-format CMOS sensor with built-in focal plane phase-detection AF pixels. Further, the new cameras are powered by the EXPEED 6 image processing engine. The Nikon Z7 comes with 45.7 effective megapixels, and supports a standard sensitivity range of ISO 64–25600. The company claims that in combination with NIKKOR Z lenses, the Z7 is capable of achieving an outstanding level of sharpness and detail, all the way up to the edges of the image.
Moving to the Nikon Z6, the mid-range camera from the brand comes with an effective pixel count of 24.5 megapixels, and supports a wide range of ISO 100–51200 standard sensitivities. “With superior performance at high sensitivities and full-frame 4K UHD movie recording with full pixel readout, the Z6 responds to a variety of needs, such as shooting in dimly lit environments, and movie recording,” the company said in its release.
At the launch today, Sajjan Kumar, Managing Director, Nikon India said, “The new products are designed to deliver a new standard of optical excellence embodying the technological brilliance in new mount and optics, yet retaining our renowned legacy, the mirrorless cameras brings imaging to new heights and challenges the norm.
