Z7 - My First Mirrorless Camera

Here is a Z7 review I have put together. I was going to post the full review here but I don't like how this forum handles photos. Maybe its just in my head but I never think they look as good on here.

Here is the link to the review:

After checking your photos and reading your review, IMO you could easily qualify as a Nikon Ambassador.

Great photos 👏🏽👏🏽

I have no issues with the lowlight and it holds up to all the cameras in its class.

I know I replied to you over at FM, but I will here as well. Stunning image and great write up. Some of the best images from the Z7 I've seen so far.

Amazing photos and a very good, balanced and informative review. On balance it seems the Z7 offers more to the average photographer than was first suggested and overall the shortcomings are minor.

Thanks for posting!

Hi myshkin,

Thank you SO MUCH for the excellent set of photos and good advice.

I suspect most older DSLR photographers like me will take a bit of getting used to mirrorless...

Thank you for giving such a balanced review!

God bless,

agreed completely ,  how rereshing to see a review where the author put the camera features and abilities into perspective instead of looking for faults and concentrating only on them .

we all know the Z7 is not perfect , and has a few things that may benifit from a firmware update , or workaround . but this review shows how capable a camera it is in skilled hands .

hats off sir , a truly wonderful set of photos , a pleasure to view.

thank you.

Great photos!  But what about the specs and the AF of hipsters driving a bike in an alley???
