Nikon’s Z6 II and Z7 II cameras adds much-needed second memory card slot

Nikon has announced its latest full-frame mirror less cameras, the Z6 II and Z7 II, which improve upon their predecessors with faster performance, improved autofocus, and the inclusion of a secondary memory card slot. The electronic viewfinder and vary-angle LCD – it can’t be rotated to face forward for vlogging. But pros will appreciate one new addition when they open the memory card door: Nikon has added a UHS-II SD card slot that joins the lone XQD/CFexpress slot from last time. Other changes are on the inside: there’s now a second Expeed 6 processor in each camera – yes, they’ve got dual processors and that’s enabled Nikon to increase their continuous shooting capabilities. The 24.5-megapixel Z6 II can hit 14 frames per second, while the 45.7-megapixel Z7 II now tops out at 10fps. 4K video recording at 60fps has been added to both the Z6 II and Z7 II. As for the autofocus improvements, Nikon’s face and eye-detect autofocus can now be used in wide-area AF mode. Both cameras are also better at hitting focus in low-light conditions, according to the company. Nikon is hoping that both the cameras will help the company stay in the mix with other camera makers.
