Here’s a collection of full-size images I’ve taken with the Nikon Z7 full-frame mirrorless camera.
Because of travel and movement restrictions of the lockdown, I wasn’t able to get out and about as much as I would have liked to shoot more with it under different shooting conditions or with as much variety in settings and scenes as normal. But hopefully, the shots below will still be useful to someone for a sense of what to expect from the Z7 in everyday real-world shooting conditions.
The Z7 and Z6  were launched simultaneously and were Nikon’s first forays into full-frame, interchangeable lens, mirrorless cameras. Both natively use Nikon’s new Z-mount lenses but can work happily with other lenses with an adapter. The Z7 has a 45MP sensor (the Z6 has a 24MP sensor). Both have full-frame FX sensors and a slew of advanced photo and video features that contribute to superb image quality.
While the Z6 has excellent video capabilities as well, my focus with it has been on shooting photos. So here’s a collection of still images I’ve shot with it. These were all shot in RAW (.nef) and only lightly processed in Lightroom. Normally, I’d probably juice up the contrast and drama a little when processing many of these shots, but I’ve wanted to leave these with a light touch for the purposes here. You can click on each image to open a full-size JPG version. And you can use the link in each caption to download the corresponding original NEF image (but be warned that they’re large, ranging from about 50MB up to 90MB).

- Officially, it’s written as Nikon Z 7 and Nikon Z 6, with an extra space. But more people refer to them with the more intuitive Z7 and Z6.
