Feel & Handling

A mirrorless camera that feels like a Nikon

Decades of refining camera design, at your fingertips.


Proven form factor

Inspired by D850, Z series cameras embody the elegance, durability, handling and operation of award-winning Nikon DSLRs—just in a smaller package.


A mirrorless you can hold

A large, deep grip for balanced handling, even when using large telephoto F-Mount Nikkor lenses. Comfortable ergonomics, thoughtful button placement and an easy to use GUI.

F-Mount Nikkor Lenses

The lenses you love,
enhanced by Z

With the optional Mount Adapter FTZ, Z series cameras are fully compatible with over 90 F-Mount Nikkor lenses, which retain all their sharpness, rendering power and functionality. Plus, they gain so much—smooth, fast Hybrid-AF*, silent shooting, in-camera VR and more. In total, approximately 360 F-Mount Nikkor lenses can be used.

The most advanced imaging system available

The technology may be all new, but the ingenuity is all Nikon.

Full frame brilliance

At the heart of Z series cameras are FX-format image sensors designed by Nikon to make full use of the extra light provided by the large Z Mount.

Brains and beauty

EXPEED 6, the most advanced Nikon image processing yet, powers breathtaking image quality, liberating low-light performance and versatile video capabilities.

Rock-steady with any lens

A 5-axis optical VR system is built right into Z series cameras for up to 5 stops* of image stabilization when using Nikkor Z lenses and up to 3-axis VR when using F-Mount Nikkor lenses**. Additional electronic VR (e-VR) can be combined during video capture.

*Based on CIPA Standards. This value is achieved when the Nikkor Z 24-70mm f/4 S lens is attached, with zoom set at the maximum telephoto position. **Full AF/AE supported when using FX or DX AF-S Type G/D/E, AF-P type G/E, AF-I type D and AF-S / AF-I Teleconverters

Powerfully cinematic

The video advantages of mirrorless design—fast, accurate on-sensor Phase Detection Auto Focus (PDAF), in-camera VR and a brilliant Electronic Viewfinder—plus the most robust 4K UHD video feature set on any Nikon camera yet.


Golden silence

Mirrorless design, on-sensor PDAF and whisper-quiet lenses let you shoot with complete stealth. Capture special moments without interrupting them.


Seamless integration

Compatible with the Nikon DSLR system—Speedlights, remotes, wireless transmitters, external mics and more.

New Z Mount

Let there be more light

The largest full-frame mount on any camera system.


17% wider mount

At 55mm, it’s the largest full-frame mount on any camera system*, allowing more of everything: more light capture, more data sharing between lens and camera and more image quality performance.

*As of August 23, 2018; image may not be to scale

65% slimmer flange*

By seemingly breaking the laws of optics with just 16mm of flange distance, Nikon can now deliver smaller and lighter cameras and lens designs impossible in any other mirrorless system.

Speed & Precision

The need for speed

High-speed shooting, operation and lens-to-camera communication.

Fast continuous shooting

Shoot up to 12 FPS with Z6 and 9 FPS with Z 7 at full resolution in 12-bit RAW or JPEG without the need for an external battery pack.

Faster lens-to-camera communication

The Z Mount allows higher-speed, larger-volume communication between the lens and camera body for dramatic gains in AF adjustments and image processing—for today and the even faster cameras of tomorrow.


Well connected

Advanced wireless capabilities.


Built-in Wi-Fi® and Bluetooth Low Energy

Z series cameras easily connect using Nikon SnapBridge* to compatible smart devices for remote shooting and transferring JPEG photos on the go.
