Nikon Z6 with Nikon Z7 Overview


Let's compare Z7 with Z6. Both cameras produced Nikon. These models are included in the Pro Mirrorless cameras. Both of these models were released in 2018. This means that differences will go a long way. Let's take a closer look.
The sensor resolution of Z7 is greater than that of Z6. The difference of 21 MP is quite a lot. The more megapixels the camera has, the more detailed and clear the picture will be. The number of megapixels will also affect the maximum size of the photos, which then can be printed without loss of quality.
