My first few days with Nikon Z6 II

My first few days with Nikon Z6 II

It’s been a while since I updated my blog. I have been shooting with the D7000 since 2013 and only had 1 camera with many lenses, so the upgrade was long dew. SO in 2021 I decided to upgrade my camera body to Nikon Z6 ii and I can feel since I had hands on this beautiful beast. The processing speeds and the high frame rates along with the amazing autofocus system and I can feel what I have been missing in case of technology advancement of the cameras. I have been using the camera for a month now and have clicked around 2000 clicks till now.

Here are few of the random clicks

Technical Information about the Nikon z6 ii

The Nikon Z6 II sits below the Z7 II as the flagship ‘multimedia’ model in the Z-series mirrorless lineup. Offering a 24MP full-frame sensor, in-body 5-axis stabilization and high-quality 4K video shooting, the Z6 II provides a similar feature set to its predecessor, but with some differences. Improvements include (and mostly stem from) the addition of a second Expeed 6 image processor, which allows for faster continuous shooting (now up to 14 fps) improved autofocus and 4K/60p video from an APS-C crop (coming via firmware). Physically the Z6 II is almost identical to the original Z6, but now features twin CFexpress / SD card slots, and provision for a vertical control grip (available separately).
