Hands On With Nikon Z

First impressions of Nikon’s new full-frame mirrorless system in the field, from wildlife and landscape photography perspectives. By Wes Pitts / Photography By Michelle Valberg and Adam Woodworth

In the months before announcing its new Nikon Z series full-frame mirrorless system, Nikon put the Z 7 camera and Mount Adapter FTZ in the hands of select Nikon Ambassadors to test pre-production models. We talked to two of the Ambassadors who had advance access to the camera— wildlife photographer Michelle Valberg and landscape and night photographer Adam Woodworth—about their experience and initial impressions working with the Z 7 and Mount Adapter FTZ with their F mount lenses.

My hands-on experience with the new Nikon Z7 by Fabio Marciano

First of all, I would like to introduce myself: I am an Italian wedding photographer based in Padua who has used Nikon cameras for the past 8 years; and like many others, I was thrilled when Nikon announced their new mirrorless camera system. I could not wait to get one of the new models into my hands. When I was offered the chance to test the Nikon Z7 with the new 24-70mm f4 Z, I did not hesitate. I immediately organized a small photo shoot at a nearby lake and later also tested it during an actual wedding for a whole day.
Here I want to share my experience and the insights I gained: Where I see the strengths and the weaknesses of the camera, and for which kind of photography I believe it works best.
