Can I get people's take on this one?  It looks good abiet overexposed....

 

What are your thoughts on this one Andrew?

I really like most of the footage. There were some shots where her face was really, really green (assuming that was light reflected off the river / canal). But in many scenes her skin tones looked really nice.

You can’t judge skin tones in daylight. You’ve gotta shoot mixed lighting.

(Shoots mixed lighting).

You can’t judge Caucasian skin tones by those shots of Asians.

(Shoots Caucasians under mixed lighting).

You can’t judge skin tones with flat footage.

(Cranks up saturation).

Makeup?

?

Skin tones look fine to me.

Yeah, I find the skin tones in your recent vids with the a7 III to look really good. On the other hand, I am the type of person who finds canon skin tones to look way to red (and I often try to reduce the red that the EOSHD profile has on my a6500 as well). Personally I am probably a big fan of the Fuji Eterna skin tones and Nikon skin tones.

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?

What settings Jeff?

I wouldn't even consider the z7 for hybrid or video shooters. I would go for the Z6, even Nikon stated that the Z6 was more appropriate for video.

Amazing autofocus AF in low light in my opinion, well above my own personal use. I think for video it should be the same as photo as they share the same system.

So why more appropriate?

Nikon said the Z6 will do full sensor readout while z7 will do line skipping in full frame. It doesn't ,ean the z7 will be bad in video, in fact everything point out it will be very good, but things like rolling shutter might be better on z6, because it is much faster to read 25 megapixel than 45 ones.

Exactly, so as we see more and more great Z7 videos that only gets me excited for the Z6!

Cheap *and* better. 

Win-win.

Well, still on AF, here says:

"Both cameras are equipped with a Z bayonet, while the Z6 will receive a stabilized 5-axis sensor with a resolution of 24.5 MP and a 273-point focusing system, and the more advanced Z7 is a 45.7 MP sensor with a similar stabilization system and AF at 493 points."

Gee, I was always impressed by the HD image of the D750, later very impressed by the quality of the the 850s video in 4K. With Nikons new babies we get all that FF glory and Nikon colors and robust codec in external 10bit now and some new LOG format.

All that with IBIS and many mirrorless goodies in FF size. I´m super exited! Exited to see what you guys gonna do with it! :)

This channel has a whole series of test, some I would call torture test of the focus, low light etc. This is in video and photo mode. For me this is beyond the level I think I would use it. I don't know how other MILC autofocus work but for me it is quite impressive.

As a Nikon user it is a dream come true. So impatient to get a z6, the Nikon image was already so good, now getting all the goodies like great video autofocus, ibis etc will make it a killer system. I hope they rapidly get some apsc version and not leave it to the higher end version.

motion cadence looks horrendous.

It did not occur to you that it was a guy with zero video shooting knowledge like the 180 degree rule etc, who just posted a master piece like below. Event the cat shooters would be ashamed of that.

That face detection in video looks so much better than on my a7riii. And the colors as well. The color tonality balance has always been amazing on the Nikons, even better than Canon, which are pressing too heavily on the reds for my taste.

If the motion cadence is anywhere near the d750 when shooting at 180d, we are golden.

Yes exactly, how is a camera meant to read your mind and know which face to follow? So this is perfectly good performance for automatic focus

Nikon is the only camera maker I've never, ever owned.  I think I want a Z6 now after reading this thread.  It's like a more robust Sony with more lens options and better build quality / better colors.

Review in german, perhaps someone could summerise it for us. From what I understood from the translation is that IBIS worked really great for video and the most important no overheating in very hot condition.
