Nikon Z6 features 4K N-LOG, 10bit HDMI output and 120fps 1080p

Optical performance of the new lenses should be fine, especially with the video optimizations. Focus by wire however not a fan of.. and the 3 lenses aren't that exciting, especially compared to Canon's offering.

In this video, the guy said he used the image right out of the camera without any grading because he wanted to show how the camera worked out of the box. The first time I saw it, I thought that it looked too normal, I meant good but too natural for a music video.

 

You would think that chick would at least shave her armpits again for that... lol

Not that any of this matters, pertaining to the camera. I just thought it was funny, seeing as she obviously does shave. She just hadn't for a few days/week etc.; knowing they were filming this, I would think she would. If that's her thing, then so be it, I think she simply forgot haha.

Has anyone noticed the large amounts of banding against a lighter background? I wonder if that was using the internal 8-bit 4:2:0, because I see some footage that looks awesome.

The music video footage is pristine. But was it shot in APS-C or full frame mode?

If full frame from 46MP, then I am amazed. It's flawless. Not a hint of aliasing and even better than the D850.

Same question for the guy who posted the N-LOG clip for download in ProRes format. Was that full frame or APS-C?

@Andrew Reid The music video was shot in FX mode, internal, standard profile:

"I filmed this straight to card. I had an exceptionally fast turn-around deadline so I did it for workflow ease.  My camera profile was standard and it was shot in FX. I tried to create the cleanest most straight forward look so everyone can see how wonderful the footage looks without and color correction or editing."

Here's the behind the scenes from the music video – I don't think they talk about using it in crop mode. 90 percent of it was however shot with autofocus.

Some macro work, SOOC.

 

Hand-held AF straight out of the camera, all at f4. I had thought the 24-70 was a bit disappointing as an initial offer, but obviously good for some jobs

I can see some of that lovely Nikon look in there. You have to underexposed it, th en you get that fat look like reversal film. Love it.

Nikon Z7 UHD 4K 30p video testing

 

The focus pull at the end is creamy, and no breathing. Looks super nice. Much to recommend this camera.

They said that all their new lens where design with video in mind. There are only haters that just want to spread all type of fud about Nikon and video. They have put speed setting for the AF in video where you can speed it up or down, this with 10 bit, ibis, Nlog etc. make for a very powerful package for video shooters. They even added a pin in their tripod mount, might seem mundane but try using a dslr or Mirrorless camera a whole day for pro work and you would see how anoying and distracting when your camera is always spinning. If even this they thought about, then they really took video very very seriously.
