Earlier today, Nikon announced updates to their full-frame camera lineup. The Z6 II and Z7 II feature identical design and same sensors as their predecessors but there are many upgrades that make these cameras much more attractive.

First of all, both new cameras come with dual processors, offering better buffer performance and continuous shooting speeds. Nikon Z6 II and Z7 II also feature two memory card slots. One of them can be used with CFexpress or XQD cards, while the other one is UHS-II compatible.

Cameras can now shoot 4K at up to 60 fps, which will be very beneficial to video shooters. This feature will be available in the Z7 II at launch, while Z6 II will get it in early 2021 via a firmware update.

The autofocus is also better now, especially in low-light conditions. Both new cameras now offers Eye and Animal detection autofocus while recording videos.

Nikon’s new flagship cameras will start shipping in November (Z6 II) and December 2020 (Z7 II). Nikon Z6 II will retail for $1,999 or $2,599 with Z 24-70mm f/4, while the Z7 II is going to set you back $2,999 for the body only or $3,699 with the Z 24-70mm f/4.
