The Nikon Z6 Filmmaker’s Kit is the first camera rig to shoot 12-Bit RAW full frame video over HDMI

At least, it’ll shoot full frame 12-Bit RAW video when the new firmware comes out in a few weeks. The Z6 (and Z7, and a few of Nikon’s DSLRs) will also support CFexpress when the new firmware update comes, too. Not surprisingly, Nikon was showing off the new Z6 Filmmaker’s Kit at NAB 2019, so […] The post The Nikon Z6 Filmmaker’s Kit is the first camera rig to shoot 12-Bit RAW full frame video over HDMI appeared first on DIY Photography.

A Sony shooter’s review of the Nikon Z6

It’s always interesting to see camera reviews from shooters of systems other than that to which the camera they’re reviewing belongs.

Why I’m taking the chance on a Nikon Z6 mirrorless camera

Last week, I went out on a limb and pre-ordered the 24 megapixel Nikon Z6, which should ship on November 30.
