XQD CARD

Nikon’s de­ci­sion to give the Z 7 a sin­gle card slot has up­set quite a few pro­fes­sional pho­tog­ra­phers, but XQD cards are more ro­bust than SD cards.

CON­NEC­TIV­ITY

Nikon’s SnapBridge sys­tem, which uses Blue­tooth and Wi-Fi con­nec­tiv­ity, is built in, but you can ac­cess the Wi-Fi sys­tem sep­a­rately to trans­fer im­ages.

TRA­DI­TIONAL CON­TROLS

Ex­po­sure is set via the aper­ture dial on the lens and shut­ter speed dial on the cam­era body. The ‘A’ set­tings on each al­low au­to­matic se­lec­tion.

BAT­TERY

The Z 7 comes with a EN-EL15b bat­tery, but it can also ac­cept EN-EL15a bat­ter­ies from the D850. The bat­tery is rated at just 330 shots.

VIDEO

Nikon hasn’t held back on the video spec­i­fi­ca­tion: you can record 4K (3840 x 2160) footage at 25/30p in 8-bit in­ter­nally or 10-bit 4:2:2 to an HDMI de­vice.

IN-CAM­ERA CHARG­ING

Al­though a bat­tery charger is sup­plied, the bat­tery can also be charged in-cam­era via the USB-C port. That’s use­ful when you want to travel very light.
