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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
