Nikon Z for wildlife action

Image

Z is simply great for action, if you have the patience to learn to handle the system... It's very different than DSLR.

Underneath two images captured with my Z6 @ 12 fps. 0.1 sec between both images, tack sharp. The weather was cloudy and lightning was poor, so what you see are images taken @ iso 5000 with Z6 + 500mm PF.

Nikon Z + 500 F5.6E PF autofocuses on a mosquito in flight

Postby Stany Buyle » Sat 23 Mar 2019 21:51

I was amazed about the ease my Z6 combined with the nikon 500 F5.6E PF focuses on a mosquito in flight :o .

Underneath is a 100% crop of the original, with paste of a screenshot exif as you see in nikon View NX-D.

I tried this endlessly with my 200-500 as well but without succes :cry: … As I like top quality zooms more than primes...
