“Dreaming” 4K video shot on the Nikon Z6

Marin Marinov shot the video "Dreaming" in 4K with the Nikon Z6: One day a guy came home and gave me a camera. He just said it’s top secret mirrorless full-frame Nikon... so I thought, why not try what’s it capable of 😉  I’ve been shooting Nikons for years, but really wasn’t impressed with video quality. I have a D850 and didn’t even bother to try the video mode.... it’s like the switch for video was cemented (just kidding:)

The newest Nikon Z6/Z7 opinions

The latest Nikon Z6/Z7 reviews: → Nikon Z7 review by Ming Thein:"On an absolute scale, what we have here is not revolution but thorough evolution – much as the D3 was in its day. And as the D3, this represents a massive quantum leap of innovation for conservative Nikon; though the Z7 isn’t the second coming of sliced Jesus there are enough solid improvements over the D850, and not too many compromises (some of which are firmware-fixable). For a first try, it’s remarkable effort. Put another way: I don’t care what the fanboys say, but we’re now on the third generation of Sony A7 (fourth, if you count the A9) and they still don’t operate as smoothly.
