NIKON Z6III.

THIRD GENERATION.

June 17, 2024.
Nikon today introduced a new camera in the Z6 series, the Nikon Z6III. The image sensor has the same effective resolution as the previous model, 24.5 million pixels. But it differ in construction. It is a so-called partially-stacked design, which means that some elements and circuits have been moved from the motherboard directly to the sensor. This primarily enables faster data reading, in this case up to 3.5x faster than with the Z6II.

Related to this is the Pre-Release Capture function, which captures images as early as one second before the shutter is pressed, at a speed of up to 120 frames per second. This is especially useful when photographing rapidly and unexpectedly changing phenomena, e.g. birds flying away etc., when thanks to the images created and saved even before pressing the shutter button, we will not miss a key moment. The question is, whether a one-second lead will be enough to eg. capture lightning in the atmosphere.

Another interesting novelty is the viewfinder. According to the manufacturer, at a luminosity of 4000 cd/m2, it should be the brightest of all currently in use. The color range (gamut) has been increased to DCI-P3, which is a color space sized between sRGB and AdobeRGB. The resolution of the viewfinder is 5 760 000 points.

The improved five-axis stabilization of the image sensor now allows up to eight times extension of "holdable" exposure times.

The durability of the camera has also been increased, which should be similar to Nikon Z8. The manufacturer also guarantees trouble-free photographing at temperatures down to -10°C (14°F).

The Nikon Z6III camera should appear in stores at the end of June 2024. The expected price is $2499 (USA, without VAT), or 2999 EUR (Germany, incl. 19% VAT).
