Makes shooting effortlessSubject Recognition with 3D Tracking
Like the Z 9 and Z 8, the Z f’s autofocus system recognizes a wide range of common subjects—people, cats, dogs, birds, bicycles, motorbikes, cars, aircraft and trains—and uses Deep Learning technology to provide exactly the right focus and tracking for each.
Eye-Detection AF for Photos and Videos
The Z f automatically locks onto the eyes of people, pets and birds, even when they’re extremely small in the frame. For the first time, the feature is also available for manual focus lenses, automatically magnifying the area around the eyes so you can quickly confirm sharp focus.
Record the moments before you actually press the shutter release button—up to 30 fps—saving shots that would otherwise have been missed.
Auto Mode Enhanced by Deep Learning
The Z f’s Deep Learning technology analyzes your shooting situation and automatically adjusts aperture, ISO and shutter speed to match your intentions.
Takes low light to a new high
Widest ISO Range Among Z Series Cameras
ISO 100-64,000 for stills with low noise across the entire range. ISO 100-51,200 for video.
AF Detection Down to -10 EV
The lowest of any Z series camera; detect faces and even eyes in extremely dark scenes.
Selective Noise Processing
Seeks out mid-tones where noise tends to increase—especially on flat surfaces—for sharp, clear low-light images with rich saturation.
HEIF Image Format for Richer Tonal Gradation
Richer tonal gradation than JPEG with increased luminance at a comparable file size. Great for stills and creating 4K HLG time-lapse videos in-camera.
Takes image-stabilization to a whole new steady8.0 stops of 5-axis VR image stabilization
Slow your shutter speed an amazing 8.0 stops slower than would otherwise be possible without causing image blur.
World’s first focus-point stabilization
The Z f applies stabilization to the area around the active focus point, wherever it is in the frame, providing precise correction right where you need it.
Designed to inspireDedicated Black & White Mode
With the flick of a switch, express composition, patterns, light and shadows in their purest form. New Flat and Deep Tone Monochrome Picture Controls give you flexible control for video and stills.
96MP Resolution Stills
Activate Pixel Shift Shooting and create the highest resolution, lowest noise and lowest false color (moiré) still images ever produced in a Nikon camera. (Requires NX Studio to combine a 32-image sequence into one 96MP image.)
Beautiful Portraits Made Easy
Apply Skin Softening, easily adjust the hue and brightness of skin tones, retain maximum detail with a new Rich Tone Portrait color profile and more—all in-camera.
Picture Controls & Creative Picture Controls
Find exactly the right style and mood for your photos and videos with easy to use presets you can preview in real-time.
Crisp footage up to 4K/60p captured in-camera4K/30p oversampled from 6K
Capture ultra-sharp detail from the sensor’s 6K image data for footage that exceeds the resolution of normal 4K UHD.
4K/60p and 1080/120p
Add a high-end touch to your videos with smooth slow motion sequences. 4K/60p is available in DX-Crop Mode.
Internal 10-bit H.265 in SDR/N-Log/HLG
A wide range of options make it easy to render beautiful colors directly from the camera or through grading in post production.
Over 2 hours of continuous recording
Record continuous clips up to 125 minutes long directly to the memory card, no external capture device required.
Versatile video controlShutter-Priority Exposure Mode
Record with a fixed shutter speed. The Z f will make smooth adjustments to ISO and aperture to maintain even brightness in your shot.
5-Axis Sensor-Shift Image Stabilization
Smooth handheld shots and camera movements. For extra stability during walking shots, Electronic VR works in conjunction with the Sensor-Shift VR.
Fine Exposure Adjustments
Adjust ISO in fine increments of 1/6 EV for smooth transitions from light to dark areas. Adjust shutter speed to as slow as 1/4 second.
The authentic feel of precision mechanics
Form and function in perfect harmony
From the tactile knurling of the brass dials to the oh-so satisfying click of the mechanical shutter release button, every element of the Z f is carefully crafted to provide not just a beautiful appearance, but also a precision, tactile shooting experience.
New touch control while shooting through the EVF
While shooting through the viewfinder, you can simultaneously use the Z f’s touchscreen to move focus points, select a different subject to track, toggle between display modes and more—all without ever taking your eyes off the scene.
