Designed for high-end photography and video applications, the Nikon Z6 II Mirrorless Camera Recording Kit from B&H includes a full-frame mirrorless body with an Atomos Ninja V 5" 4K recording monitor, external monitor power kit, monitor mount, and HDMI cable.

Faster speed, more versatility, more performance – the Nikon Z6 II is an updated version of a versatile mirrorless camera designed for high-end photography and video applications. Despite the many upgrades, the Z6 II retains its familiar shape and prized image quality, which will benefit working multimedia image makers.



Revolving around a 24.5MP BSI CMOS sensor and dual EXPEED 6 image processors, the Z6 II features increased buffer depth and a higher burst rate, up to 14 frames per second with single-point AF or 12 frames per second in other focus modes. Video recording is possible at UHD 4K 30p or up to FHD 120p for slow-motion output, and external recording gets 10-bit output along with N-Log and HLG (HDR) support. The sensor is also suitable for working in various lighting conditions, with sensitivity from ISO 100-51200, and the built-in 5-axis vibration reduction reduces the effects of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting. In addition, the sensor also features a 273-point phase-detection AF system that now supports Eye-Detect AF in Wide-Area AF modes and during video recording and enables low-light focusing down to -4.5EV.

In terms of image balance, the Z6 II retains its overall physical design but has been updated with a new dual memory card slot interface that accommodates one CFexpress Type B card and one SD UHS-II card for more flexible storage. Both the high-resolution 3.6m OLED EVF and the rear 3.2" flip-up touchscreen LCD with 2.1m dot lend versatility to composition and playback, and SnapBridge wireless connectivity can be used for remote camera control, sharing images to a mobile device, and even wireless firmware updates.



Firmware version 1.10 unlocks UHD 4K recording at 60p and 50p, enables raw video output to external Blackmagic Design Video Assist recorders, and improves eye detection performance when using Auto-Area AF and Wide-Area AF modes.

Improving on its initial efforts, Nikon has revised the Z6 platform to offer faster speed, faster processing, and greater versatility without sacrificing the popular features of the original camera.

Dual EXPEED 6 image processors offer increased buffering performance, faster continuous shooting at 14 frames per second, and noticeably reduced viewfinder downtime.

Updated autofocus now includes eye and face detection for both humans and animals in Wide-Area AF mode for both photo and video recording.

Long exposure time-lapse photography is now possible for up to 900 seconds (15 minutes) without the need for external remote control.

Two memory card slots offer more flexible file storage options; one CFexpress Type B slot and one SD UHS-II slot allow for overflow, separate, and repeated storage options.

The USB Type-C port allows for in-camera charging or continuous power for on-the-go charging or longer shooting times.

The direction of rotation of the focus ring on the lenses can be switched as needed.

HDR (HLG) mode support for external recording provides HDR-ready video files for instant playback. N-Log is also available for better control during post-production and grading.

A future firmware update will add UHD 4K 60p recording to the current 30p frame rate.

Entitlement to the optional ProRes RAW upgrade, which allows the camera to transfer ProRes RAW footage to a compatible Atomos external recorder. This upgrade provides greater color grading flexibility with the ProRes codec along with the ability to output uncompressed 12-bit raw footage via HDMI. This update will be available in early 2021.



SnapBridge's wireless connectivity can be used to update the camera's firmware, instead of relying on a memory card-based update system.

Updated creative shooting modes include multiple exposures, 20 different settings to optimize images, and in-camera time-lapse recording. There is also a Focus Shift mode for recording up to 300 sequential images with the focus position shifted between exposures for focus stacking applications.

Compatible with the optional MB-N11 Power Battery Pack for longer battery life and better handling.

24.5MP FX-format BSI CMOS sensor and two EXPEED 6 processors

The 24.5MP BSI CMOS sensor is used for versatile photography, impressive low-light quality and fast readout speeds, benefiting continuous shooting, movies, and time-lapse recording. The back-illuminated sensor design provides noticeably clean output with high sensitivity to reduce noise when working at high ISO values ​​up to native ISO 51200, as well as vivid and smooth quality up to ISO 100. The sensor benefits from dual EXPEED 6 image processors that provide high speed throughout the camera system, including the ability to shoot continuously at 14 frames per second for up to 124 consecutive frames.

UHD 4K video recording

Utilizing the capabilities of the sensor and processor for more than just stills, the Z6 II is also a more than capable multimedia camera. UHD 4K video recording is possible at full pixel readout up to 30p, and Full HD 1080p video recording up to 120p for slow motion playback is also supported. Video files can be saved to memory cards in the camera or as uncompressed files to an optional external recorder via the HDMI output.



Advanced video features have been added to the Z6 II, including N-Log gamma for capturing flat footage that maximizes dynamic range, and HLG (HDR) for recording HDR-ready footage. Other additions include the ability to output high-quality 10-bit data via HDMI and the Electronic VR function for smooth handheld shooting. Focus Peaking can be used to the advantage of manual focus control, and there's also a Zebra Stripes option to help detect overexposed areas in the shot. Audio recording can be done using the built-in stereo microphone, or an optional external microphone can be added via the 3.5mm stereo jack for greater control over the quality, and live viewing is possible via the headphone jack.

Firmware version 1.10 unlocks UHD 4K recording at 60p and 50p and enables raw video output to external Blackmagic Design Video Assist recorders, as well as improved eye detection performance in Auto-Area AF and Wide-Area AF modes.

273-point AF system with phase detection

There is an array of 273 phase-detection autofocus points on the sensor, which cover 90% of the image area vertically and horizontally. This provides a fast and accurate focus for both photos and video, and the wide coverage area will allow subject tracking to work right out to the edges of the frame. For video, there's Hybrid AF, which automatically switches between phase and contrast detection systems to ensure smooth focus during shooting.
