Nikon Zf High ISO Sample Images

The Nikon Zf has some really impressive low-light shooting capabilities. Here are some side-by-side examples of high ISO photos I’ve taken with the Nikon Zf from ISO 3200 up to ISO 64000.

Among the many key features of the Nikon Zf is its impressive low-light performance. And as this seems like a camera that is purpose-built for available light shooting, including in tricky lighting on the streets, that’s going to come in handy.

But what does that actually mean in practical terms? And how does it fit with your expectations and preferences? Of course, every photographer is going to have a different set of preferences for when the image quality is too degraded, and it’s also going to vary from scene to scene and the use it’s being put to.

I’ve posted a separate collection of comparative images throughout the native ISO range. I’ve also posted some more general Nikon Zf sample images. But here, I’m focusing on some side-by-side comparisons through the high-ISO range on the Zf. 

The Nikon Zf has a native ISO range from 100 to 64,000.
It has an extended ISO range down to 50 and up to 204,800.

You can also tap into the extended ISO range, where software takes over to amplify the signal. You can drop that down to ISO 50 or bump it up to 204,800 in extended ISO. [1]

Precisely where the threshold between “normal” and “high” ISO falls is obviously an entirely subjective judgment. For these purposes, I’m going to put it around ISO 3200 because most decent cameras these days can handle at least up to that without any real difficulty.

I’ve tried to include a range of different scenes and levels of detail and tones in the shots below. 

Technical Notes About How I Created These Images

It’s worth explaining exactly how these were generated and what you’re seeing here.

These were all shot on the Nikon Zf, and these files are all straight out of the camera without any post-processing. That last point is worth emphasizing because, under normal shooting conditions, I’d be doing at least some post-processing, even if that’s just tweaking contrast and brightness. But these have had nothing done to them outside of the camera. They were shot with the RAW + JPEG fine* setting in SDR tone mode. The RAW recording is set to the default (High efficiency✭).

The High ISO NR setting is at Normal (the default setting). That’s a particularly important point, because that affects both the JPG files and the JPG previews used within the RAW files. This is the setting that controls the camera’s own internal noise reduction processing. And because the images embedded in the page below are using the JPG files, you’re seeing the effects of that in-camera noise reduction in these display versions (which is why I’ve also included links to the RAW files). And the in-camera noise reduction is pretty darn impressive.

The in-camera noise reduction is also relevant to the RAW files but in a different way. This setting does not affect the underlying RAW data in the NEF files. But when you first open a RAW file to view, you’ll most likely see the preview file that’s embedded within it. To get past that and see the underlying RAW file, you’ll need to regenerate the preview thumbnail; whichever RAW viewer/editor you’re using will have a way to do that manually or automatically among its functions.  

In many cases, I’ve included several shots of the same or similar scene at different ISOs so you can do some direct side-by-side comparisons.

You can click on each image below to open a full-size version from the JPG or use the links in each caption to download the original straight-out-of-camera RAW and JPG files. The NEF files range from about 30 to 37 megabytes each.  [2]

Nikon Zf Price & Availability

Since its launch, the Nikon Zf has been in hot demand (unsurprisingly) and is sometimes running into backorder status.

It comes in a variety of configurations, from body-only to bundled with the 40mm ƒ/2 lens or the 24-70mm ƒ/4 lens.

Fixing Image Quality Problems in Editing

The general rule of thumb in photography is that it’s better to get the shot right at the time of capture rather than trying to fix it later. That’s a great aspiration, but it’s not always possible to do if you’re shooting in especially challenging conditions or bumping up against limitations or flaws in gear, conditions, or technique.

But it’s worth mentioning that there are some excellent tools available to help address common image quality issues with digital images. And they’re getting better and better all the time as the power of AI ramps up. They can deal remarkably well with anything from sensor issues like high-ISO image noise to lens issues like distortion, softness, vignetting, and chromatic aberration. (Note: I’m focusing here on corrections related to image quality, not image enhancement tools—that’s a different kettle of fish.)

All-round image processing apps like Lightroom Classic and Capture One have solid tools built in that are very good places to start. But it’s also possible to take it much further with more specialized tools. If you shoot in challenging conditions regularly and find room for improvement in the image quality coming out of the camera, these might well be worth a look (and they have free trials). Some are stand-alone apps; some integrate into image editing suites such as Lightroom Classic.

UPDATE: In April 2023, Adobe released an update to Lightroom Classic that added new AI-powered noise reduction for RAW files. It’s a powerful tool that rivals some of the dedicated apps below. If you’re already using Lightroom Classic for your image editing and organization, it’s well worth trying out—look for the Denoise tool under the Detail panel.

Fixing Image Noise & High ISO Artifacts

  • DxO PureRAW 3. Like Lightroom Classic’s Denoise tool, it only works on RAW files. But since was updated to version 3, it has become my go-to app for this kind of thing. I’m consistently amazed at how it can rescue photos with otherwise dodgy image quality from noise. It can also help with lens distortion, lens vignetting, and lens softness.
  • DxO DeepPrime. This is the noise-only offering using the same denoising technology as PureRAW.
  • Topaz Labs’ DeNoise AI. This is another excellent option for specialized denoising. It works alongside Lightroom or as a standalone app.

Fixing Lens-Related Optical Issues

  • DxO PureRAW. Again offers an impressive suite of automatic fixes that are applied before you start editing the images.
  • DxO ViewPoint. Correcting for lens distortion and geometry skews. Lightroom Classic and Capture One also have excellent built-in tools for this.
  • Topaz Labs Sharpen AI. In addition to standard unsharp tools, it includes focus correction and shake reduction.
  1. This is in stills mode with the output as RAW (NEF) or JPG. If you have the output as HEIC for the HLG tone mode, the ISO range is limited to 400 to 64000 when HLG is selected for tone mode.[]
  2. The variation in the file sizes is due to how image compression works. Even though the RAW compression is on the lowest setting (Lossless compression), it’s still applying compression.[]

I'm a professional photographer based in Washington, DC. Seven continents, up mountains, underwater, and many places in between. I've been shooting for 30+ years, and my photos and time-lapse videos have appeared in a bunch of different publications, from major newspapers to magazines and books, billboards, TV shows, professional sports stadiums, museums, and even massive architectural scrims covering world-famous buildings while they're being renovated. You can see some of my travel photography here and here.
