Capture stills and videos as you imagine them with the Picture Control and Creative Picture Control functions. Applicable for both stills and videos, these functions enable users to use colour to express the feelings, temperature, and atmosphere of their subject at the time it was captured. Wedding and portrait photographers seeking flexibility in their captures will appreciate the new Rich tone portrait setting, which allows for rich tones while retaining the skin details of their subjects.

The Z f features enhanced video performance allowing for more authentic production of stills and videos. With H.265 10-bit in-camera recording and N-Log/HLG recording support, subjects such as landscapes, architecture, portraits that have delicate details can be beautifully and accurately depicted. Users can also shoot with minimum gear and without the need for an external recorder.

In addition, it supports the recording of 4K UHD video using 6K oversampling3, enabling creation of high-resolution videos. The camera also features Video S mode, which enables users to control auto exposure with a fixed shutter speed. This is especially useful when the brightness is constantly changing outdoors due to cloud movement, or the scene includes a significant difference in brightness such as from bright sunlight to shade.
Introducing pixel-shift shooting; an all-new feature with the Z f. Capturing high-definition images of detailed subjects is now possible thanks to this advanced feature. Users can now shoot multiple NEF (RAW) files while shifting image sensor positions utilising in-camera VR when the camera is fixed with a tripod or other equipment. Through NX Studio, it merges multiple NEF (RAW) files; select 4 shots/8 shots/16 shots/32 shots and the resulting images can be compiled to produce high-definition images with increased resolution and colour reproduction, and reduced moiré, false colour, and noise – ideal for subjects with a lot of details such as art objects, insects, and minerals.
With the Z f, enjoy superior AF performance with wide support from easy to more particular shoots. The AF-area mode includes 3D-tracking in photo mode and subject-tracking in video mode, and an improved tracking capability when moving subjects such as pets and vehiclesare detected, thanks to EXPEED 7 image processor.
Users can focus on framing their shots as the AF detects various subjects in frame, without the need to change settings. EXPEED 7 also enables continuous shooting at the maximum continuous shooting speed, regardless of the AF-area modes. The Z f features enhanced VR performance; the in-camera Vibration Reduction of up to 8.0 stops4 expands the range of handheld shooting toinclude low-light indoor and long exposure shots.
The Z f also boasts a few firsts: It is fitted with the first Vari-angle monitor in the full-frame/FX-format Z series, whichenables flexibility when composing stills or video shots such as overhead, low angle for shooting feet, or selfies. The camera is also the first touch-operation camera in the Z series, allowing users to easily change settings via touch operation on the monitor while focusing on the framing their composition from the viewfinder.
