The Z 7 and Z 6 full-frame mirrorless cameras will feature the latest firmware updates, giving attendees the chance to discover how the Z series is a platform built to evolve, as Nikon continues to enhance performance and functionality to adapt to the latest technology and user feedback. Nikon will also display the new D780, a powerfully versatile DSLR that’s great for professionals shooting portraits, weddings, fashion, maternity, landscapes and everything in between.
