Nikon Z 6II Review

Taking Mirrorless to a New Level

The newest Nikon Z 6II mirrorless Camera from Nikon flaunts a very impressive set of specifications that should make any VLOG photographer happy as well as the sports or wildlife photographer. The big question is should you upgrade from your current DSLR/Mirrorless or wait for a price drops? Starting at $1999.00 this camera is fairly affordable and is priced competitively.

What are the impressive aspects of the Nikon Z 6II mirrorless camera:

  • DUAL processors maximize performance across the board. Two EXPEED 6 processing engines. They work together for faster image processing, more buffer capacity, and more overall speed.
  • Dual Card Slots to finally shut up the whiners. One slot accepts CFexpress (Type B) and also XQD cards. The other slot accepts standard SD cards. If you use a Nikon Z6 or Z7 currently you already have CF or XQD cards at hand and you probably have a few SD Cards as well.
  • Vertical Grip, you know the one that was missing with the Nikon Z6.  The MB-N11, pro-level grip for the  Nikon Z 6II for professionals who need maximum vertical shooting controls—shutter release, command dials, Fn button, and more—while landscape, sports, wedding, and nature photographers will love a 1.9x increase in battery performance.
  • Faster More Precise Focus across the board. With the dual CPU, you get faster autofocus using a 273 single-point Hybrid AF system with improvements to low light performance, new options for Eye-Detection AF, and easier selecting of AF modes.
  • Improved low light capabilities. Can focus using half the available light as its predecessor.
  • Improved Autofocus Coverage area - 90% of the viewfinder is covered.
  • Improved Tracking and Eye Detection.  You now have the ability to set boundaries on your subject in stills and video.
  • Improved buffering over 3 times improved
  • 4k in 60fps
  • Update the Nikon Z 6II’s firmware with the SnapBridge app from your smartphone

In addition to the incredible feature set of the Nikon Z6, and now with the added features for the Nikon Z 6II as listed above make for a very compelling reason to upgrade.

My recommendation:  If you are a Video photographer and do stills I would jump into the newer Nikon Z 6 II. The Nikon Z 6II has superior performance and will enrich your shooting experience.
