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


Recommended Posts

yeah, hard not to be bulky when slapping a 600mm f/4 on the front.

the fs700 and recorder combo is big, but it's definitely manageable when you have proper camera support. No doubt the fs5 has the advantage there.

Still, for 4k slowmo, the fs700 is still pretty bad ass when recording externally. More than enough camera for what I'm doing.

 

 

Also, to go the other way, here's the fs700 with the Pentax 110 24mm 2.8 lens on it, just for shits and giggles

Hi all, Very long time lurker, first time poster.  I’ve got my z6 in hands since the beginning of the week, and thought I could share some first impressions. Bought it in kit with 24-70s + ftz +

I'm sure you guys can grade better, but I loved the footage https://vimeo.com/290295765  

Being too close to the colour standards on a chart is what got Sony into colour problems in the first place. It was a 100% science based approach when actually colour is also an art.

Yeah that is sort of a problem with them. You need a recorder. The whole package is not as cheap as it looks when you add that in, not counting the bulk. But they can get the job done when you get it all together. But most of the Cine cameras can get pretty large overall when you add all you really need to make it happen, even a lowly a7s. ?

Hey the FS700 does stills so it's cool in my book.

Here's a still SOC no adjustments made in post. This is also 99% accurate organic color reproduction. My friend Tom skin tone, CS is 99% accurate to how it is in real life. 

We shot with the C200 at this same location and the Z6 matches the C200 in image quality. This was shot in portrait mode with center metering.

Do anyone think this camera isn't accurate and awesome? I personally want an accurate base image to work with.

Since at least one guy said my video still was a photo, here's the video footage.

Depends on what type of stuff you are going to shoot and budget. Does it Have to be 4K, well I guess it will have to be, duh on my part,  you have lighting, or access to it or not, on and on. You buying or renting. Lots of variables. Sony FS7 seems to be the flavor of the day for most people. Might be too big for you?? Heck the PK4 is probably Netflix approved by now. Cheap thrills.

The dreaded list. Not sure it is 100% up to date but..

EVA or BM URSA Mini 4.6K are the ones on my list. P4K is great but no way I'm going with a camera that "might be" approved by Netflix. 

Why buy any of the older cameras you push when they don't meet spec?
