Ideas that inspire. Images that resonate.
With the world’s widest full-frame mount, the agile Z 7 mirrorless camera captures light as never before.
BIG MOUNT. BIG IMPACT.
The wide 55 mm mount diameter means your Z series camera takes in more light. Just 16 mm between the mount and the camera’s full-frame image sensor means more of that light reaches the sensor.
INSPIRED BY LIGHT.
From twilight blues to graphic shadows. The powerful optical design of Nikon Z mount lenses, combined with the wide mount, gives you the power to work magic with the light.
Life in front of you
Be bold. Be subtle. With 45.7 MP of full-frame imaging power, beauty is yours to define.
Incredible detail. Phenomenal focus.
The back-illuminated 45.7 MP full-frame CMOS sensor with focal-plane phase-detection AF captures razor-sharp images.
