Nikon Z6 reviews and reports

I cannot offer you a Nikon Z6 test myself, as there is neither time, money nor sufficient expertise for it. However, there are some specialists who have looked at the Nikon Z6 in the test and shared their experiences with the camera. So awards The photo magazine, for example, gave the following ratings for three points of criticism (with different weightings): image quality 81%, speed 96% and equipment and operation 92%. It should be noted, however, that a firmware update to version 2.0 has since been released, which has made the camera even better. About that too berichtete the photo magazine.

CHIP has also adopted the professional DSLM and as a Summary many advantages listed. I find it strange that the XQD memory cards were rated as exotic and disadvantageous. Thanks to their robust construction, they offer more protection and, thanks to their PCI connectivity, a higher data rate for reading and writing the photo and video information. Safe storage of photo shoots and 4K video recordings is thus possible. Sony also offers free data recovery software. A good offer for professional users who buy the Nikon Z6 DSLM camera. The said test also took place before firmware 2.0.

Nikon Z6 reviews as video

On YouTube I found three interesting reports about experiences with the camera, which I will include for you in the following. The first two videos are mainly about the Nikon Z6, the third video compares it to the Sony A7 III.
