Sensor and Image Processing

At the heart of the Z6III is a newly developed 24.5-megapixel partially stacked CMOS sensor, which works in tandem with the EXPEED 7 image processor to deliver exceptional image quality, wide dynamic range, and impressive low-light performance. The camera boasts an ISO range of 100 to 64000, expandable to 50-204800, allowing you to shoot confidently in challenging lighting conditions.

Autofocus

One of the standout features of the Z6III is its advanced autofocus system, which employs a hybrid phase-detection and contrast-detection AF with 273 focus points. This ensures fast, accurate, and reliable focusing even when tracking moving subjects. The camera also offers Eye AF and Animal Eye AF, making it easier to capture sharp portraits and wildlife shots.

Video Capabilities

For those interested in video, the Z6III is a powerhouse, capable of recording 6K video at up to 60p, 5.4K at 60p, 4K at 120p, and Full HD at 240p. The camera supports internal 6K RAW recording, as well as oversampled 4K UHD and various other recording formats, giving videographers plenty of options to work with. Additionally, the Z6III features Focus Peak VR, which stabilises the area around the active focus point for even smoother footage.

Image Stabilisation

The Z6III’s 5-axis in-body stabilisation system provides up to 8 stops of compensation, allowing you to shoot handheld with slower shutter speeds and still achieve sharp results. This is particularly useful when shooting in low light or when using longer focal lengths.

Viewfinder and LCD Screen

The camera features a large, bright 0.5-inch UXGA OLED viewfinder with a resolution of 5760k dots and a DCI-P3 colour gamut, providing a clear and detailed view of your subject. The 3.2-inch vari-angle touchscreen LCD is also a welcome addition, making it easier to compose shots from difficult angles.

Build Quality

In terms of build quality, the Z6III is designed to withstand the rigours of professional use. The camera body is made of durable magnesium alloy and features extensive weather sealing to protect against dust and moisture.

Performance

In use, the Z6III proves to be a highly capable and responsive camera. The autofocus system is quick and accurate, even when tracking fast-moving subjects. The camera’s burst shooting capabilities are impressive, with the ability to capture up to 20 fps with RAW, 30 fps with JPEG, 60 fps with JPEG, and 120 fps with 11 MP JPEG.

Image and Video Quality

The image quality produced by the Z6III is excellent, with great detail, colour reproduction, and dynamic range. The camera’s low-light performance is also noteworthy, with clean, usable images even at higher ISO settings.
Video quality is similarly impressive, with the camera’s 6K and oversampled 4K footage offering excellent detail and clarity. The inclusion of Focus Peak VR is a nice touch, helping to keep your footage stable and smoothing out any camera shake.
