89% when the list of cons has 20 (!!!) I was really hoping for the z 7 to be a camera for me. Z8? They are not fan boys or stupid geeks, just users who want the best value for their money, and to get the best their money could buy for their job or hobby. Sony's solution was to skip using IS during video and do it with software. The Fujifilm X-T3 received a Gold ranking and 88% where the Z7 received a Silver with 89%...What am I missing here? Around 50mm, I'd prefer the Sony Zeiss 55mm because of the size, but Nikons 1.8/50 is a great performer, too - and cheaper.Nikon, we're waiting for a Z7mk2, a Z8 and maybe an aps-c Z5 (mirrorless version of the D5600). The long list of failures in the Z 7 don't affect the score much, if at all, because of this. More like a feature-less D850. It's intuitive to select a subject by tapping on it in Auto Area AF mode, and the performance matches the performance of the best video autofocus systems we've tested. On the other hand there is the clear minority here that's been avidly/professionally shooting high/top-end gear for a long time and know what truly matters in a camera to deliver more/better images for their type of shooting, or all genres really. NIKON has no idea how tough the market is. Photokina has announced via a press release that after 70 years of shows in Cologne, Germany, it will be indefinitely suspended due to 'decreases in the imaging market’ that have ‘force[d] a hard cut.’. I am not sure how/why you interpreted my message but I wasn't talking about Z7 or A7 cameras at all. And here are updated rumored specs of Nikon Z6 II and Z7 II, the official announcement for both cameras could be as early as next week. It'll be interesting to see whether Nikon's decision not to share the mount specifications inhibits the introduction of third-party offerings, beyond the official FTZ adapter. How do you know he didn't have to replace a Sony body after it got set in the condensation ring from a cold drink on a hot day..? We have no doubt that Nikon has bet heavily and soon we will find many more options. Panasonic S5 vs Nikon Z7: Physical Specs and Body features Comparison Size and weight is a big decision factor when you are trying to find the ideal camera for your needs. You've got me. Z7 is more comparable to an A7rii priced at $1500-$2000. Petty you. However, the camera's video performance is hindered by overheating issues. On the one hand, I'm SO there with Tommi. Minolta innovated most of the stuff we use. The Z 7II is a full frame, 45.7 MP camera with dual processors, 4K UHD video at 60p and two card slots. It would be nice if there was a detailed explanation of how the scores are given for each individual camera. When comparing the Z6 to the Z7 for video purposes, the Z6 is a clear winner. I do not shoot Nikon, but if I did I would currently stick with the D850 and wait for at least one iteration, unless you are a hybrid photographer really needing the Z7 AF and possibly the 10 bit files. Unlike the D850 the Z7 offers focus peaking in 4K mode. The Z7 II is Nikon's second generation of its high pixel count, full-frame mirrorless body, which is dust- and drip-resistant. I tried the camera and the AF is not on par with the D850 in any shape or form.I haven't heard anybody contest that as yet! I rarely seen them so not convinced with any new competitive cameras, always looking at pros and cons. I am pleasantly surprised by the Z7, when it was announced with the EOS R I figured they would both be a total loss. It is really simplistic and naive making trends or drawing conclusions based on these numbers (i.e. Switch it off, no banding. Meanwhile Canon and Nikon kept building marketshare. SLT's set the ground work for everything great in mirrorless cameras. The app includes automatic image transfer, gallery creation, editing tools and more. This banding is resulting from the PDAF implementaion on the sensor. The main difference between stills and video AF is that you have two different parameters to fine-tune the AF behavior. For me, the better EVF, better rear LCD, top LCD, better battery life, base ISO 64, built in intervalometer, better weather sealing and my expectations for the soon to be released 14-30 f4 lens were the primary reasons I decided to replace my A7rII with the Z7. You're looking at least at an investment in the A9 and at that price your dropping D5 and 1D money. They're essentially a summary of the year. Reviewers are trying to identify what's currently the strongest camera, which doesn't presuppose commitment to a system. So when you look at value for the money I am not so sure which one is better. In this buying guide we’ve rounded up all the current interchangeable lens cameras costing under $1000 and recommended the best. Read https://www.dpreview.com/articles/4416254604/camera-scores-ratings-explained. Well, I get where both of you are coming from. 0.3, 0.5, 0.7 or 1 EV (ISO 32 equivalent) below ISO 64 or to approx. The Z 7 has IQ that's second only to the A7R III. There are the usual drop-frame, rec run and free run options, along with the ability to set the camera's clock. There are several cameras out there that match or surpass that, some of them are cheaper too. Once minolta was out of the market some needed to step in and innovate. It is, however, completely disingenuous for you to say that that was the main reason for the score and the Silver award; especially when the opening statement in the review says that “The Nikon Z7 is the company’s most well rounded camera to date. Planning to treat yourself to a new full-frame camera this holiday season? The new Laowa 15mm F4.5 Shift lens lets you go wide with perspective control. The above video offers a quick comparison of Nikon's Flat Picture profile - available when shooting any internal capture mode - to N-log footage captured to an external recorder. Go back and look at my comments on the Z forum. To me more like 85 or highest 86% score should have been given. CIPA's latest report for global camera shipments shows the camera industry is gaining pace once again in a year marred by the COVID-19 pandemic atop a market already in decline. will they?did you use the Z7?Or is this just a theoretical exercise on your part? It lacked the finesse and the speed of AF, the customization, and above all the available lenses. For the highest quality footage, 10-bit Log can be recorded out over HDMI and graded in post. The Z7 is arguably trying to balance stills and video performance. @Noogy... no one really cares that you shoot Canon so no need to be so insecure. What have you owned so far? Have a look. It arrived at last in 2018 .. and was a big disappointment .. Z7 and Z6. Sixth, for video shooters, the Nikon Z7 is also a superior option, thanks to 4:2:2 10-bit recording with N-Log, which is absent on the D850. DPReview needs to rethink this. I was quite surprise to see them not to really on board with the performance of the new Z from Nikon. Poor sales during the 4th quarter could mean dropping to well below that. Autofocus and one card slot, even image quality... proof is there in the pudding. I am not really sure about the arguments .. Z7 good for landscapes and bad AF. The banding that is being talked about here has nothing to do with the banding related to artificial lighting you are confusing it with. Now we see Sony has lost 33% market share in the past month alone. compactness?) As for DPRs PROS/CONS if you look at DPRs positives, the Z7s are a joke in a large part. Sadly, it cannot be used at the same time as highlight warnings, so you'll need to switch between the two. Hmm, did you learn vocabulary from a certain orange politician in the White House? And not the kind of dust you can remove with a brush. You've gotta be kidding. Nikon D850 vs Z7 II. Nikon Z6 vs Z7 Video Features and Specs (Hands-On) from Nice Lady Productions Plus . 35.9 x 23.9mm (FX) I assume PDAF is implemented on competing Canon and Sony mirrorless cameras in similar ways and so, it also has a dynamic range limiting factor on their cameras too, if it were to compare their PDAF mirrorless with a Canon and Sony non-PDAF camera more targeted at stills. Tracking and refocusing on subjects is straightforward and reliable. I was pointing out that the score and award are not directly related. Such photographers always yearn for that extra thing, that could actually make the difference in getting the "perfect" shot. DPR's scoring methods need to be revised. Vaporware no more: the much-speculated-about Zeiss ZX1 has arrived. It seems the reviews are more of a selling pitch, rather than a real independant neutral objective review of what is current and for real, and more of what may happen in the future or what was hoped to exist. The Nikon Z7 and Z6 were not competitive with, the already successful, Sony a7RIII, a7III, as well as the sporty a9. There were bumps in the road, but it always came through. Other products and brand names are trademarks or registered trademarks of their respective companies. Ouch. We've combed through the options and selected our two favorite cameras in this class. Only problem about the Z7 and Z6 reviews and being awarded gear of the year, is that it makes me, and possibly many other readers extremely skeptical about the DPReview reviews now and in the future. Why innovate now when enough people will buy it as-is? But of course ymmv, my personal opinion, whatever just get it right. 8 bit video to external recorders, which I use an Atomos all the time.3. But somehow I find it hard to believe that one of the biggest camera companies with all its experience and know-how plus having access to all the competition's gear which was produced in the previous years will come up with a product which is on so many levels below the par with their SLR range. The Z7 will still generate many doubts to professionals , especially knowing that their AF system is not so outstanding (if we compare it with a professional SLR), but above all by betting on a new mount in which, for now, we only find three objectives available , which limit their possibilities. You don't have to feel the need to defend any camera from me. The banding is only a feature which silent shutter above certain ISO, its in the manual. The Canon R5 has many noteworthy features, not the least of which is 8K video recording. Sorry. This is a huge step forward for Nikon in terms of video. Now, three months later, the company has confirmed in a statement that the personal information of past and current employees was taken from its servers. Yes, exactly. There is no correlation between the score and award. Take a look. Choosing the Z7 is not understandable, if you just consider its clumsy AF system, which in all reviews, including DPR, is shown to be below par!! Sony in my opinion is doing many things right, the main of them calling the opposite strategy that Canon offers drawing to them people unsatisfied with Canon marketing strategy, successfully. Download firmware for Nikon digital products (firmware being the built-in software that controls cameras and other devices). While the Sony A7R IV will surely be improved, Sony is clueless about building cameras with the right ergonomics/haptics; that is a key strength of the Nikon Z7. the worst of the worst. The Nikon is a much more finished product, that has better build, better weather sealing , better ergonomics, better user interface and better video than any other full frame camera out there. Yongnuo, makers of lenses, cameras and other photo accessories, has filed a patent for a modular mirrorless camera system. 89% for both the Z and EOSR put together. Got a feeling the DPreviewers are biased towards Nikon over canon. The Nikon Z6 and Nikon Z7 cameras are Nikon's first full frame mirrorless cameras, with a totally new Z mount and new S series line of lenses. 2 years ago. And soon they will abandon SLTs.SLTs were a complete failure. positions? They could easily achieve this with just a firmware update to allow a double click on the focal point joystick which locks the point where you desire. @Oskar P"Canon learned long ago. Nikon Z6 and Z7 Specifications Comparison. We generally find this level of rolling shutter isn't too bothersome, mainly posing problems in fast pans and the like. They lack decent support and accessories and their ergonomics and menus are pathetic. The 65mm T2 completes Vazen's set of anamorphic lenses for the Micro Four Thirds system. There'll be some people who want 8-bit internal Log capture, but you can at least see why Nikon might decide not to offer this much less powerful option. You focused too much on the negatives that you entirely missed the big picture and that is Z7's advantages over other cameras. They were a massive failure. I'm just saying the SLT's were important for Sony. The hard plastic port covers are terrible5. Once you switch the Z7 into full-frame 4K mode, the rolling shutter effect is unfortunately magnified, and is more noticeable in casual shooting. Just a good camera and understandable that the shortcomings might be irrelevant to many yet a rating is based on its value compared to the competition. The "Gold" and "Silver" awards are akin to participation trophies. “That encompasses a lot more than just image quality!!!! Nikon's arrogance kept them from making the perfect camera. Here's the DPReview TV team's first take on the Z7's video specifications. Have significant firmware updates changed Chris and Jordan's recommendations? The Nikon D850 and the Nikon Z7 II are two digital cameras that were revealed to the public, respectively, in July 2017 and October 2020. I think I recall reading that they are working on this. The A7RIII is not only a better value but it offers far more feature set and it's a very well built camera. The Nikon Z6 and Z7 both offer high-quality (4K) video capabilities. For potential buyers, go out to the shows and shops and try it out for yourself and make that decision out for yourselves .. yay or nay, AF system hunts in low light, due to limited sensitivityFace detect less reliable than competitionAF Tracking less reliable than competitionAF Tracking cumbersome to engage/disengageTouchscreen cannot be used for touchpad AF when using the EVFLimited AF button customizationSignificant rolling shutter in full-frame 4K footageNo live feed at 9fpsLive feed at 5.5fps suffers from significant drop in EVF refresh rateVery limited bufferInconsistent metering, heavily weighted to AF pointOn-sensor AF causes banding, slightly limiting usable dynamic rangeAggressive noise reduction at high ISOElectronic first curtain shutter (EFCS) needed to avoid potential shutter shock (yet is off by default)EFCS limits shutter speed to 1/2000Two-Button-Reset and Quick Format actions missingNo linear response option for video shooters wishing to manual focusBattery life on the short sideSingle card slotNo flip-around screen for vlogging. We compare the Canon EOS R6, Nikon Z6 II, Panasonic S5 and Sony a7 III. With the exception of Pinpoint and Dynamic Area modes, the AF options for video shooting match those for stills shooting and behave in a similar way. But the Sony had better AF back in 2015. The Z7 is a good choice for run-and-gun style video. Updated rumored specs of Nikon Z6 II and Z7 II: Incremental update to the current Z6/Z7 models 1 : 8) or basic (approx. At the same time, they gave a roadmap for releasing six more lenses in 2019 and even more in 2020. And everything thing else you mentioned they copied. Too expensive for what it offers! then you wouldn't even put it as a good second. DPreview got it right. A lot of Fan boy comments below that are quite laughable.

The A99 was the first to use on sensor focus point.
