    Z mount Structure & Design

The advantages of
mirrorless combined with
the legacy of Nikon.

A bigger mount. What a bright idea.

Z series cameras have the widest lens mount of any full-frame or DX digital camera. This means more light. More light means faster performance. Sharper images. Thrilling new lens designs with up to f/0.95 max apertures.

More about Z mount

Small and mighty.

Z series cameras are simply stunning, inside and out. Ergonomic. Functional. Tough. These are cameras crafted for those who create.

Next-level image quality.

A legacy of innovation and know-how goes into every Z series camera. These cameras achieve a thrilling new level of image quality capable of inspiring some of your greatest creations.

What you see is
what you get.

With Z series cameras, what you see in the viewfinder is exactly what you’ll get. Your exposure, ISO, white balance, Picture Control and creative filters are all applied in real time. Shot too dark? Make changes without taking your eye off your subject.

More about Z series Viewfinder

Superior optics. Unmatched versatility.

Z series cameras work with approx. 360 classic F-Mount Nikkor lenses (with the Mount Adapter FTZ) as well as the revolutionary new Nikkor Z lenses. Your vision has no limits.

Z series Video Capabilities

True Hybrid Still and Video Cameras

4K Ultra HD Video

Not all 4K is created equal, and the 4K footage captured by Z series cameras is elevated by Nikon’s superior image sensors and processing engines. Rich. Vibrant. Tack-sharp. This is 4K as it was meant to be.

Smooth, Quiet Autofocus

The speed, smoothness and accuracy of a Z series camera’s autofocus system is ideal for recording video. It’s nearly silent, and when used with Nikkor Z lenses, “breathing” and “wobbling” are virtually eliminated.

Epic Slow Motion

Z series cameras record beautifully smooth 120 FPS slow motion in 1080p Full HD. Turn an ordinary moment of action into something epic.

Mind-bending Time-Lapse

Z series cameras create amazing time-lapse videos right in the camera with exposure smoothing and extended low-light metering range—great for star trails and lightpainting.
