We were lucky enough to get our hands on a Nikon Z6 a week early with the latest firmware that brings EYE-AF. As you know, I love taking the cameras into Real World situations to test them out. That’s exactly what we did this time around with our model.

Download the Firmware for the Z6 and Z7 right here.

Not only did I do regular hand held shooting with the Nikon Z6. But I also broke out the Sony a7 III and Canon EOS R, which both have eye-af. On top of the hand held shooting, we set up all three cameras with their respective 70-200 2.8’s and Atomos recorders. The Atomos’ allow us to record our EVF and share with you a first person look inside the camera.

I was honestly expecting the Nikon eye-af to suck…… but it didn’t. It’s not on par with the Sony but it’s certainly not the worst in the world. It has a long way to go though to catch up to Sony.
