Optics and Focus
The Nikon Z7 features the newly introduced Z-mount that is 17% wider than the ones in standard full-frame cameras. It allows more light to reach the sensor for enhancing the picture quality. A Nikon FTZ mount is provided with the camera, which fits NIKKOR F-mount lenses on this Z series camera. The adapter has a magnesium alloy construction with weather sealing to prevent dust and moisture from entering inside. With the 1/4""-20 female thread, the adapter supports large telephoto lenses when mounted on a tripod. The fast phase-detection system employs 493 AF points that are spread over 90% of the imaging area to ensure accuracy in the imaging work. For the video mode, the camera uses the Hybrid AF that takes the aid of both phase and contrast detection methods. The 5-axis sensor-shift VR system minimizes the unwanted jerky movement when shooting handheld without cropping the image. The image stabilization restricts the unwanted camera shakes by 5 stops for Z-mount lenses and 3 stops for F-mount lenses.
