Nikon Zf Overview
Performance to Inspire
Designed for modern-day content creators, the Nikon Zf Mirrorless Camera delivers full-frame image quality and UHD 4K video recording in a classic-looking retro-styled camera body. Offering exceptional low-light imaging performance, fast and efficient autofocus, an advanced 8-stop 5-axis vibration reduction system, high-resolution pixel-shift shooting technology, and a large 3.2″ vari-angle touchscreen, this sophisticated camera is optimized for all your image-making and video needs.
24.5MP FX-Format BSI CMOS Sensor
A 24.5MP BSI CMOS sensor is used for all-around shooting, impressive low-light image quality, and fast readout speeds to benefit continuous shooting, movies, and time-lapse recording. The back-illuminated design of the sensor also affords noticeably clean high-sensitivity output for reduced noise when working at high ISO values. Additionally, the Zf features a high-resolution photo mode that combines multiple exposures to create a single 96MP file.
Complementing the sensor is an advanced processing engine, the EXPEED 7, which works in conjunction with the sensor design to realize impressively fast AF speeds, burst shooting rates, a high buffer capacity, fluid video performance, and quick all-around handling.
UHD 4K Recording
Matching the camera’s high-end photo attributes, the Zf offers a variety of frame rates and resolutions for all your video needs. Oversampled from 6K, UHD 4K video recording is possible with full pixel readout up to 30p, and Full HD 1080p video recording is also supported up to 120p for slow motion playback.
Internal recording directly to a memory card with 10-bit SDR/HLG/N-log tone modes.
Fast and Intelligent AF
Utilizing deep learning technology, automatic Subject Detection now recognizes nine distinct subject types. With this AF system, subjects are automatically detected, focused on, and tracked to ensure sharp focus when the subject is moving across the frame. Additionally, the Zf also features 3D Tracking, which locks onto fast, erratically-moving subjects that move parallel and perpendicular to the camera.
In-body 5-axis sensor-shift Vibration Reduction compensates for up to 8 stops of camera shake when paired with Z-mount lenses. This system also works with adapted F-mount lenses when using the optional FTZ Adapter, where 3-axis stabilization is used.
Focus point vibration reduction system, which maximizes VR based on the location of your focus point.
- A large 3.2″ vari-angle touchscreen is available for bright and clear image playback and live view shooting. The screen allows you to work from high and low angles, while its touchscreen design enables intuitive operation, navigation, and setting control. The camera also now features a new Touch Fn function, which allows you to simultaneously use the Z f’s touchscreen to move focus points, select a subject to track, and toggle between display modes, all while using the viewfinder.
- Pre-release capture records up to 30 JPEGS a full second before shutter is released.
- Dedicated switch for instantly toggling in real-time between color and black and white capture.
- Compatible with optional MC-N10 Remote Grip and AR-11 Soft Shutter Release.
