Re: Z5 for 1080p video or Z6ii ?

Excellent, that's what I will have to purchase for the recording setup.

Regarding the Z6ii, yes the SD card is important (basically outweighs the extra cost over the z6 in card costs) and the wifi and bluetooth features in addition to charging over usb-c are important for me.

Personally, I tend to keep my cameras for a very long time and rarely sell. That's the only hesitation, but the price difference is huge. I'm not sure if I upgrade in the next few years, the price drop of the Nikon z6ii will be substatial, heck there will probably be something else to upgrade to. In that case I do think the Z5 might be a decent compromise, the lack of BSI and severe 1.7 crop are quite frustrating (it the crop was 1.5 it would have been bearable).

I know that the Z5 also does not record in N-Log RAW video format or provide 10-bit recording over external HDMI recording. But does it allow any recording over external HDMI? Is it 8-bit 4:2:2 ?
