Due to my good friend Markos (All About Digital Photo – Markos Stavrinakis) I recently had the opportunity to test the Nikon Z6 camera.

Not really a fan of mirrorless cameras I was curious to see how this little camera performs with my series of lenses, most of which do not auto focus with this camera (most of them are older manual or screwdriver AF models). Not a problem though since I can focus using the lens ring, with the help of the focus shift option offered by the camera.

I was very impressed by the image stabilization, since I could hold a large lens in my hands and shoot in relatively low speeds.

I will try and include photo data after each shot in order to give an idea of how the photo was captured.

I have to say that Nikon Z6 performed a lot better than the first generation Sony A7 I had some years ago, feels a lot more solid and it is a lot easier to succeed towards a good image.

All pictures are from a seagul family that decided to spend this Winter near the port of Rafina in Greece and most of them were very willing to pose against my camera…
