Nikon Z6 Camera Review
The Nikon Z6 is one of Nikon’s first two full frame mirrorless ILC cameras. Of course the other option is the higher resolution Nikon Z7. It features an all new all electronic mount and is compatible with existing AF-S and AF-P lenses with an adapter. Older Nikon lenses can also be used, but they will not autofocus and even older lenses may not meter properly due to the new lens mount design. Nikon has been tweaking the venerable F-mount since it was released in the 1950’s and slowly moving more towards an electronic based mount.
The new Nikon Z6 camera uses a new variant of the EN-EL15 battery, the EN-EL15B, but it is backwards compatible with earlier versions as well. this is a good move by Nikon to maintain the same battery system for existing users of the mid-range and better DSLR bodies. It uses a single XQD memory card, for which it has received some criticism. Not because of the choice of the card type, but because it only offers a single card slot. The Sony A7 Mark III offers dual card slots, although only one of the slots is high speed.
Nikon opted to add image stabilization to the camera body as well as offering in specific lenses. They have engineered the system so that if the attached lens offers image stabilization the body stabilization works together with it in conjunction to improve the stability.
