The new camera is power-packed with the EXPEED 7 image processor offering features like in-camera 10-bit N-log video. With this launch, we have introduced the industry-first focus point VR which helps to reduce the subject blur even in compositions where the subject is positioned at the periphery and comes with a dedicated monochrome selector. The AI-driven features like Portrait Impression Balance, Skin Softening and Advance Auto, are designed keeping in mind the needs of photographers and cinematographers who are into Wedding and Fashion genres. The new Nikon Z f will become an extension of the creator community and will help them take their content a notch higher”.
Nikon Z f is decorated with features like enhanced video performance allowing for more authentic production of videos and stills. With H.265/H.264 10-bit in-camera recording and N-Log/HLG recording support, users can also shoot with minimum gear and without the need for an external recorder. With up to 125 minutes1 of 4K UHD/60p2 video recording, the Z f enables full-scale video recording with sufficient duration. In addition, it supports the recording of 4K UHD video using 6K oversampling3 , enabling the creation of high-resolution videos. With EXPEED 7, users can capture low-light situations beautifully as noise is suppressed even when ISO sensitivity is increased, thereby expanding the range of shooting low-light scenes such as night landscapes and indoor portraits.
