Nikon’s second wave of mirrorless full frame cameras are about to hit the shelves and many will be asking whether the Japanese manufacturer has made changes to the autofocus system. Wedding photographer Taylor Jackson has put a pre-production model to the test.
As noted by Jackson, Nikon has addressed one of the major complaints regarding its first round of mirrorless cameras: the lack of a second card slot. This is a very welcome addition, particularly for wedding photographers who appreciate having the redundancy in order to sleep properly at night.
Jackson makes some interesting points regarding the Z 6II, suggesting that it was unfairly criticized in the past due to users not fully understanding how it works. Eye autofocus was often regarded as being the worst out of Canon, Nikon, and Sony, though firmware upgrades have definitely brought some significant improvements, and this new camera appears to be another step forward.
Jackson has made a ton of videos over the last couple of months aimed at helping wedding photographers, particularly those who are adjusting to the new “micro weddings” that are becoming more frequent during the global pandemic. You can check out his channel here.
