Nikon Z6 II and Nikon Z7 II full-frame mirrorless cameras are now official with expanded 4K video features and dual card slots. Following the Nikon Z6 II & Z7 II announcement, Atomos also announced ProRes RAW support for the new Nikon Z6 II and Z7 II cameras.
The Z 6II is capable of 4K/30 internally with full-pixel readout, however a 4K/60p will be available via an upcoming firmware update. Moreover, Full HD/120fps is also included in the Z6 Mark II. While the new Z 7II can record 4K/60p internally at launch, both cameras are still limited to an 8bit 4:2:0 H.264 internal codec and subject to a 29 mins recording limit. However, 10-bit support and N-Log is available only externally via HDMI.
In addition, Nikon say they built the the Z 6II with videographers in mind and as such have included focus peaking and zebras. Also, AF speed and tracking sensitivity is adjustable, while the focus ring can also be reversed. Check out the details of Atomos ProRes RAW support for Nikon Z6 II and Z7 II cameras.
