The Nikon Z7 II Body Only will elevate your images into a realm of unprecedented realism with sharp detail from corner to corner. With intuitive operation, sharp, accurate AF and dual image-processing engines, this mature evolution of the Z-mount system lets you make high-resolution 45.7-megapixel files at your own uninterrupted shooting rhythm. Even out in the harsh natural environment, you can keep exploring your creativity without worrying about your gear. Whether your subject is backlit, near or far, the Z 7II and NIKKOR Z will capture your heart with realistic subtlety and rich details you’ve never experienced before. A stunning moment that stands still forever: immerse yourself in it.
Shoot at a fast pace without losing the pivotal expressions, as the Z7II captures approximately 77 shots with a single burst and supports a continuous shooting of up to 10 fps at setting of Continuous H+ with dual EXPEED 6 image-processing engines. With the speed and reliability of the two engines, coupled with dual memory card support, experience greater processing performance with no drop rate.
On the sensor, you will find an advanced phase-detect autofocus system using 493 points covering 90% of the image area and the sensor features 5-axis Vibration Reduction technology for stabilized photos and video regardless of the lens used. This advanced hybrid AF system will also benefit video. The Z 7 II features UHD 4K recording at up to 30p and can use the N-Log gamma profile along with the camera's 10-bit HDMI output to create cinema-quality video.
Follow your subject’s actions closely with the subject-tracking AF, similar to that of the familiar 3D tracking. Easily swap between your choice AF tracking mode without taking your eyes away from the improved electronic viewfinder (EVF), that also now automatically disables the automatic eye sensor when the monitor is tilted, via the assignment of the control to the camera’s Fn buttons. Photo shoots, and even video shoots, of models posing with playful fur-friends, are also made easier with the Eye-Detection AF and Animal-Detection AF. Following the requests of creators, the wide-area AF (L) support has also been added for both AF modes.
The Z 7 II's slimmed down design and lighter build maintains the weather sealing and ergonomics for which Nikon is known. The camera features multiple displays and screens for ease of use, including a 0.80x 3.6m-dot EVF with NIKKOR optics and a Fluorine coating, ensuring clear viewing. The rear of the camera is equipped with a 3.2" 2.1m-dot tilting touchscreen LCD while the top offers a dot-matrix OLED for quickly checking settings. Additionally, the body is equipped with both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

The Z 7II’s FX-format sensor featuring 45.7 megapixels is designed to perform at its maximum potential when combined with NIKKOR Z lenses. The Z 7II and NIKKOR Z demonstrate how a high-resolution sensor enhances the sense of realism with rich textures, subtle details and more depth in images to an incredible degree. It offers an impressively wide dynamic range throughout its standard ISO range, starting from the base ISO 64. Up to the highest standard ISO 25600, the Z 7II effectively reduces noise and offers clean files for a wide variety of scenes.
Picture your subject in high-resolution, the still images flowing into motion. You can capture all of them in immersive 4K UHD video, rich in color and detail, and now record the scene at 4K 60p*, revealing movement with smooth cinematic eloquence.
*The actual angle of view when shooting in 3840×2160 at 60p is approx. 93% of that when [FX] is selected for an image area of 3840×2160 30p/25p/24p.
The Z 7II is also ready for high-production-value video shooting with its external video recording options. Taking advantage of a breathtaking colour depth range in 4:2:2 10-bit HDMI output*1, it now offers the Hybrid Log Gamma (HLG) option, which is convenient for producing HDR videos for HLG monitors. The profile supports ITU-R BT.2100, which features the wide colour gamut of the BT.2020 standard. The N-Log option also records extremely rich gradation information, capturing up to approx. 1.07 billion colours as well as a wide dynamic range at 12 stops and 1300%, which allows effective colour grading. Not only that, but the camera enables 12-bit RAW video output*2 both in 4K UHD and Full HD — a feature available with high-end video cameras to offer maximum flexibility in colour adjustment.
*1 Full HD/100p and 120p are not available.
*2 Optional with charge. Requires shipping of the camera to Nikon.
Match your high-resolution images with more decisive moments. Equipped with turbo-charged Dual EXPEED 6 image-processing engines, the Z 7II realizes approx. 10-fps*1 maximum continuous shooting for up to a whopping 77 frames*2. There’s now no need to hesitate: you can continuously shoot at any pace and any framing you desire to keep up with a subject’s constantly changing expressions or positions and nail the perfect frame in 45.7-megapixel high resolution. Where subtle nuances make a difference such as in portraits or scenes involving actions, the Z 7II enriches your creativity further.
*1 In high-speed continuous shooting (extended), with single-point AF. 9 fps in AF-C with an AF-area mode other than single-point AF.
*2 With 12-bit lossless compressed RAW (L) and Sony CEB-G128 CFexpress card in use.
With Picture Controls, you can create beautiful JPEG images instantly, easily, and flexibly — all in-camera, but sometimes you prefer a slightly softer expression than Standard or want a sharper depiction than Portrait. “Quick sharp” lets you adjust the sharpness and softness of stills and videos easily. Finetuning each of three parameters — sharpening, clarity and mid-range sharpening* — is also possible when you want to pursue your preferred look according to the subject’s subtle textures and your selected output size. Even when shooting RAW, in-camera processing is enabled, allowing you to create stunning images ready to share instantly with the Nikon’s exclusive, reliable and easy-to-use application SnapBridge, right there in the field or on a trip.
* Adjustable in still shooting and high image quality mode for video recording.
The Z 7II’s 493-point*1 hybrid AF system offers you highly accurate focus across 90% of the frame. Controlling that power to meet your creative intentions is now even easier. When you want to let the camera automatically focus on the subject’s eyes, but only in a limited area of the frame, the new wide-area AF (L) option for Eye-Detection AF/Animal-Detection AF helps you capture your subject in your intended composition — in both stills and video. Another handy option is the subject-tracking AF that performs like Nikon D-SLRs’ popular 3D-Tracking, effectively keeping your subject in focus even as it comes closer or moves further away. When shooting in dark interior or night scenes, the Z 7II offers autofocus down to -3 EV*2. Working together with superb NIKKOR Z lenses, the Z 7II gives you the sharp, accurate AF you need.
*1 In FX format with single-point AF.
*2 Using AF-S at f/2.0, ISO 100 and 20°C/68°F with the centre focus point selected in single-point AF area mode.
The Z 7II’s AF lends you a more sophisticated video shooting capability, especially in situations when filming alone. Face- and eye-detection AF for people and animal lets you more easily stay focused on your subject even when it moves, such as in an interview or party. The wide-area AF option is useful when you want to focus on the intended face or eyes in a busy frame. You can also shift your focus from foreground to background or vice versa, simply by touching the LCD screen. AF speed can be customized to be quicker or slower. Access to these different AF options and the ability to make adjustments are just a few touches of the LCD screen away.
The natural view of the Z 7II’s electronic viewfinder brings you right into the scene. It maintains that important direct connection between you and your subject. Nikon’s expertise in optics and image processing spares no detail to give you a clear and comfortable view with reduced aberration. You can keep shooting with minimum eyestrain, even over extended periods. The Z 7II further improves visibility during high-speed continuous shooting. With an increased number of frames* processed between shots compared to previous models, you can more easily follow your moving subjects in the frame and capture decisive moments.
* Only in Continuous L or Continuous H mode.
The Z 7II now lets you turn off the live view info display*1, addressing users’ requests. You can assign this function to custom controls*2, and switch on/off with just a click. This allows you to confirm your whole composition without distractions, convenient in video shooting as well as stills.
*1 Focus point, rec icon during movie recording and total length display are excluded.
*2 Assigned to the movie-record button in photo mode default setting.
The Z 7II has comprehensive weather- and dust sealing applied to its joints and seams, while its top, rear and bottom covers, as well as the inside body structure, are made of robust magnesium alloy. Sealing is also employed throughout the Z-mount system, including the NIKKOR Z lenses, to enhance total reliability. A fluorine coat on the NIKKOR Z and the Z 7II’s EVF also allows you to easily and quickly wipe off moisture and dust, even right in the middle of shooting. The Z 7II is a camera that you can use free from worry in a wide range of tough environments.
The Z 7II offers improvements to let you keep on shooting for longer. A power-saving mode is now available for situations where you need to be economical with energy usage. In addition to USB charging when the camera is off, USB power delivery during shooting is now possible from a mobile battery or computer via the optional UC-E25 USB Cable. This helps in situations such as outdoor timelapse shooting, letting you continue shooting for an extended period of time.
The Z 7II records its massive image files very fast onto two different media — reliable CFexpress (Type B)/XQD cards and the UHS-II SD card — through its dual card slots. With the powerful dual EXPEED 6 engines that can easily handle simultaneous recording of big files onto two memory cards, the Z 7II never slows down. Your shooting rhythm never gets interrupted.
Nikon’s SnapBridge ver. 2.7 enables the upgrade of your camera’s firmware. It informs you of new firmware updates and lets you receive it via smart devices and transfer it to your camera right away via Wi-Fi®. You no longer need a computer and a card reader for this process. SnapBridge also lets you transfer RAW images and video files to your smart devices while offering various convenient remote-control operations for stills and videos
