“The precision and accuracy of the AF enables me to capture more difficult scenes and visual ideas.”

For the first time in a Nikon camera, the Z 6II is powered by not one, but two EXPEED 6 processing engines. They work together for faster image processing, more buffer capacity and more overall speed.
Dual card slots.
Now you have options. One slot accepts CFExpress (Type B) and XQD cards. The other slot accepts standard SD cards. Use the format you prefer. Or use both slots and separate video and still files or RAW and JPEG, create a backup or maximize your onboard storage.
Experience 14 FPS* continuous shooting at full resolution—RAW or JPG—with a buffer 3.5X larger than the previous generation and minimal EVF blackout between shots.
*When shooting in Continuous H (extended) and Single-point AF mode.
4K Ultra HD at 60p.
Record incredibly detailed 4K Ultra HD footage with full-pixelreadout. Capture in your choice of frame rates including ultra smooth 60p* with an upcoming firmware upgrade.**
*8-Bit and DX-crop mode only
**Z 6II firmware upgrade scheduled for free download February 2021
Introducing the MB-N11, the pro-level grip for the Z 6II. Shoot vertically with comfortable controls—shutter release, command dials, Fn button and more—and get up to a 1.9x increase in battery performance*.
*1.9x is achieved when two EN-EL15c batteries are used to power the MB-N11, versus using the EN-EL15cbattery in the camera alone.
More autofocus power.
Optimized for stills, high-speed sequences and video work, the Z 6II’s 273-point Hybrid AF system brings performance improvements, new options for Eye-Detection AF and easier selecting of AF modes.
See in the dark.
With a big leap forward in low-light autofocus performance, the Z 6II can find your subject in half the available light as its predecessor*. Keep shooting into the evening with the same fast, accurate AF performance.
*AF detection range starts at -4.5 EV
The AF system’s 90% frame coverage lets you compose the way you want, from the start. Either manually choose one of 273 focus points across the frame, or let subject tracking automatically select the focus points based on where your subject is within the frame—even at the far edges.
Eye-Detection.Better than ever.
Nikon’s intelligent Eye-Detection AF quickly identifies and locks onto eyes—either humans, dogs or cats—for properly focused portraits. The Z 6II builds on the system with accuracy enhancements and more flexibility.
Right on target.
Now you can use Wide-Area (L) Mode to set boundaries for eye detection. Select an area of the frame, and the Z 6II will only look for eyes there—great for busy scenes, group shots and pet portraits
Capture the eyes. On Video.
All of these features of Eye-Detection AF are also available during video recording. Easily track moving subjects and keep footage looking sharp and professional on the eyes.
