CUSTOMER TESTED: NIKON Z 7 MIRRORLESS CAMERA
We recently worked with Nikon to deliver a ‘Try Before You Buy’ equipment loaner program. During the program, we had over 12 customers test out the camera over a period of five dqys. No agenda. No direction. They just went out and photographed subjects that interested them, as they normally would. Below, we feature a small gallery of their Z 7 produced images as well some of their personal thoughts.
“Fantastic camera that is the first mirrorless that I would consider purchasing. EVF [electronic viewfinder] was equivalent to OVF [optical viewfinder], and some ways even better (low light). Amazing image quality, and ability to use older Nikon lenses and other 3rd party lens (Zeiss). Ergonomics similar to my other Nikon DSLRs, very easy to use and customize to personal tastes.” – Michael C.
“Images were crisp. Ergonomics are superb. I love the feel of it and how controls are laid out. Low light performance was impressive. I really enjoyed the 35mm lens. It lessened the weight. It is large for a travel camera but gets great results.” -Sheldon R.
“Overall, I was very impressed by the camera. In particular, the quality of the files was exceptional. Both the resolution and the dynamic range was phenomenal. The Z 7 handled very well and since I often use Nikon cameras, the transition was nearly seamless.” -Michael K.
