Nikon Z7 II
TThe Nikon Z7 II is the first, slight revision of the initial Z7. The basis still remain a 45-megapixel sensor, combined with now two EXPEED 6 image processors. After all, Nikon reduced the MSRP compared to the first Z7 in most markets.
Among other things, Nikon uses the additional processing power for faster continuous shooting at up to 10 frames per second. 4K videos are also now possible at 60 frames per second instead of the previous 30, allowing even light slow motion in contemporary resolution.
Video professionals also have the option of activating a RAW video output via HDMI for approx. 200 Euro/USD at their local Nikon service. After activation, the formats Apple ProRes RAW and Blackmagic RAW are available for output, which can be recorded on external HDMI recorders of the type Atomos Ninja V (ProRes RAW) or Blackmagic Video Assist 12G HDR.
In addition to XQD and CFexpress, SD memory cards are now supported as well. In particular, filmmakers and photographers who seldom make use of the burst mode are now offered a much more cost-effective alternative for often less than 25 cents per Gigabyte. Nikon only requires the video speed class V60 for 4K recordings in maximum quality, which is nowadays offered by most mid-range SD cards. Corresponding memory cards are marked with a logo in the table.
