Nikon Launches Its First Ever Mirrorless Cameras


Nikon has swung one at Sony by launching its mirror-less cameras. Sony has been a leader in the mirror-less technology which really worried Canon and Nikon. However, it was inevitable for either to come up with their best proposal for a mirror-less camera.

Both Z7 and Z6 offer in-body image stabilization that claims up to 5 stops efficiency with native Nikon Z lenses and 3 stops with adapted Nikon F lenses. Both the Nikon Z7 and Z6 can capture 10-bit 4:2:2 3840x2160px 4K video at 24, 25 and 30 fps.
