Save $300 on Nikon Z6 II at Best Buy

Nikon’s mid-tier Nikon Z6 II is one of five professional mirrorless offerings that use Nikon’s Z-mount system for lenses. Nikon’s Z-series cameras, named after their proprietary lens mount design, have led Nikon’s foray into mirrorless photography. The lock mechanism on the Z-mount has four latches rather than the three found on the common F-mount.

In practice, the only difference between a DSLR and a mirrorless system is the viewfinder. A DSLR employs a mirror mechanism to reflect the image into the viewfinder, allowing the photographer to see the light entering the lens directly. The image generated by the sensor is displayed in real time on a miniature screen in the electronic viewfinder of the Z6 II mirrorless camera (EVF).

The Nikon Z6 II arrives just over two years after the Z6, and Nikon has chosen to keep the new camera’s design nearly identical to that of its predecessor. While this may appear to be a lack of creativity on Nikon’s part, the decision to use the same body is not a bad thing – the Z6 is one of the best-handling mirrorless cameras on the market, with controls that fall easily to hand and key settings that are easy to access. The joystick is also nicely weighted, and all of this is complemented by a large and comfortable hand grip and a well-defined thumb rest.

Simply put, the Z6 II is one of the most enjoyable mirrorless cameras to use. Keeping with the same design, the Z6 II uses the same tilt-angle display as the Z6. This shouldn’t be too much of an issue if you’re mostly shooting stills, but video shooters may be disappointed that the Z6 II lacks a fully articulating vari-angle display. With magnesium alloy top, front, and back covers and the same excellent level of weather sealing as Nikon’s pro-spec DSLR, the D850, the Z6 II feels extremely durable.

However, not everything has remained the same. The Z6’s single XQD card slot was one of its flaws. While this is a highly reliable media format, XQD cards are significantly more expensive than even the best SD cards. Nikon listened to customer feedback and included a second UHS-II SD card slot alongside the XQD/CFexpress slot on the Z6 II.

The SD slot makes the camera more accessible to a wider range of users, while those upgrading from the Z6, or who already use the XQD format, will be able to use their existing cards. When it comes to shooting, the extra slot offers options for simultaneous backup, overflow storage, or recording JPEGs, while the XQD/CFexpress slot handles raw files.
