Overview

Z f
Performance to Inspire

Full-frame image quality, depth and dynamic range

The versatility of a full-frame Nikon sensor. Autofocus built from Deep Learning technology. Astounding low-light performance and image stabilization.

Key Features:

  • More Light Capture
  • Smoother Bokeh
  • Richer Colour Tone
  • Wider Views

Powerful Performance

EXPEED 7
The Latest in Image Processing Technology

  • 10x faster than previous generations of EXPEED image processing
  • Enhanced by sophisticated Deep Learning technology
  • Same powerful processing engine used in Z 9 and Z 8

Makes Shooting Effortless

Up to 30 fps High-Speed Capture

Nail the decisive moment with 14 fps continuous shooting using the Z f’s mechanical shutter, which has been tested to 200,000 cycles, or activate C30+ for up to 30 fps using the silent electronic shutter.

Pre-Release Capture

Record the moments before you actually press the shutter release button—up to 30 fps—saving shots that would otherwise have been missed.

Auto Mode Enhanced by Deep Learning

The Z f’s Deep Learning technology analyzes your shooting situation and automatically adjusts aperture, ISO and shutter speed to match your intentions. You can automatically capture portraits with beautiful background blur or have all the faces in focus for a group shot.

Subject Recognition with 3D Tracking

Like the Z 9 and Z 8, the Z f’s autofocus system recognizes a wide range of common subjects—people, cats, dogs, birds, bicycles, motorbikes, cars, aircraft and trains—and uses Deep Learning technology to provide exactly the right focus and tracking for each.

Eye-Detection AF for Photos and Videos

The Z f automatically locks onto the eyes of people, pets and birds, even when they’re extremely small in the frame. For the first time, the feature is also available for manual focus lenses, automatically magnifying the area around the eyes so you can quickly confirm sharp focus.


Takes Low Light to a New High

Widest ISO Range Among Z Series Cameras

ISO 100-64,000 for stills with low noise across the entire range. ISO 100-51,200 for video.

AF Detection Down to -10 EV

The lowest of any Z series camera; detect faces and even eyes in extremely dark scenes.

Selective Noise Processing

Seeks out mid-tones where noise tends to increase—especially on flat surfaces—for sharp, clear low-light images with rich saturation.

HEIF Image Format for Richer Tonal Graduation

Richer tonal gradation than JPEG with increased luminance at a comparable file size. Great for stills and creating 4K HLG time-lapse videos in-camera.


Takes Image-Stabilization to a Whole New Steady

8.0 Stops of 5-Axis VR Image Stabilization

Slow your shutter speed an amazing 8.0 stops slower than would otherwise be possible without causing image blur.

World’s First Focus-Point Stabilization

The Z f applies stabilization5 to the area around the active focus point, wherever it is in the frame, providing precise correction right where you need it.

Built-In Creativity

Designed to Inspire

Dedicated Black & White Mode

When shooting stills, you can easily go from colour to black and white with the flick of a switch. Go beyond monochrome with new Flat and Deep Tone Monochrome Picture Controls for both videos and stills to capture light, shadows, composition and patterns in their purest form.

96 MP Ultra-High Resolution Stills

Activate Pixel Shift Shooting and create the highest resolution, lowest noise and lowest false colour (moiré) still images ever produced in a Nikon camera. (Requires NX Studio to combine a 32-image sequence into one 96MP image.)

Beautiful Portraits Made Easy

Apply Skin Softening, easily adjust the hue and brightness of skin tones, retain maximum detail with a new Rich Tone Portrait colour profile and more—all in-camera.

Picture Controls & Creative Picture Controls

Find exactly the right style and mood for your photos and videos with easy to use presets you can preview in real-time.

Flexible Video

Crisp Footage up to 4K/60p Captured In-Camera

4K/30P Oversampled from 6K

Capture ultra-sharp detail from the sensor’s 6K image data for footage that exceeds the resolution of normal 4K UHD.

4K/60P and 1080/120P Slow Motion

Add a high-end touch to your videos with smooth slow motion sequences. 4K/60p is available in DX-Crop Mode.

Internal 10-bit H.265 in SDR/N-Log/HLG

A wide range of options make it easy to render beautiful colours directly from the camera or through grading in post production.

Over 2 Hours of Continuous Recording

Record continuous clips up to 125 minutes long directly to the memory card, no external capture device required.

Versatile Video Control

New Shutter-Priority Exposure Mode

Record with a fixed shutter speed. The Z f will make smooth adjustments to ISO and aperture to maintain even brightness in your shot.

5-Axis Sensor-Shift Image Stabilization

Smooth handheld shots and camera movements. For extra stability during walking shots, Electronic VR works in conjunction with the Sensor-Shift VR.

Fine Exposure Adjustments

Adjust ISO in fine increments of 1/6 EV for smooth transitions from light to dark areas. Adjust shutter speed to as slow as 1/4 second.

Shooting Experience

Form and Function in Perfect Harmony

The Authentic Feel of Precision Mechanics

From the tactile knurling of the brass dials to the oh-so satisfying click of the mechanical shutter release button, every element of the Z f is carefully crafted to provide not just a beautiful appearance, but also a precision, tactile shooting experience.

New Touch Control While Shooting Through the EVF

While shooting through the viewfinder, you can simultaneously use the Z f’s touchscreen to move focus points, select a different subject to track, toggle between display modes and more—all without ever taking your eyes off the scene.

Front-Facing Screen for Content Creation

Bring the exceptional quality of full-frame footage to your content. Touch controls make it easy to start and stop recording.

40mm f/2 (SE)

So small. So fast. So classic.
An iconic take on a small, fast, versatile lens.

Nikon's fast 40mm prime with a cool retro design.

This special edition of our 40mm f/2 prime is more than a lens—it’s a shooting style. Fast. In-the-moment. Improvisational. Its compact size and tactile feel make it a smooth operator, and its classic styling elevates the look of any Z camera. Combine that with the great low-light performance, beautiful bokeh and a natural angle of view of the original lens, and you’ve got a 40mm prime that really is special.

Stylish point of view on any Z series camera.

A full-frame standard prime, the NIKKOR Z 40mm f/2 (SE) works—and looks—great on any Z series camera. On full-frame/FX format cameras like Z 6II and Z 5, it covers the sweet spot between 35mm and 50mm. On APS-C size/DX format cameras like Z fc, Z 50 and Z 30, it delivers a 60mm* field of view.

Shoot after hours.

Capture the mood of dimly lit situations with clarity and sharpness, and use faster shutter speeds to freeze action without sacrificing brightness.

Get in close.

Focus as close as 0.96 ft. from your subject and reveal the smallest details, ideal for food shots, plants and much more.

Dramatic depth.

Make your subject stand out against a beautifully blurred background. The shallow depth of field of f/2 is enhanced by the lens' 9 rounded blade diaphragm, creating a natural bokeh effect.

Nothing weighing you down.

At just 1.8 inches long and 6 ounces, you'll forget the lens is even there. It doesn't extend or retract, so it's always ready. Take it wherever you go as your main walk-around lens or as a lightweight second lens.

Great for video.

With its natural field of view, suppressed focus breathing, near-silent autofocus and a 9-rounded-blade iris that can be smoothly opened and closed using the click-less control ring, the NIKKOR Z 40mm f/2 (SE) is outstanding for videos of all types, from vlogs to cinematic films.

  • Fast, reliable focus.

    A new high-torque stepping motor operates at blazing fast speeds in near silence, whether using Eye-Detection AF or continuous subject tracking.

  • Customizable control.

    The smooth click-less control ring can be customized for the way you shoot. Use it for precise manual focusing or to adjust aperture, ISO or exposure compensation.

  • Dust and drip resistant.

    The lens barrel and all moving parts are designed carefully considering dust- and drip-resistant performance with sealing that prevents dust and water droplets from entering the lens.
