For many photographers, although this kind of shooting picture is quite aesthetic, the rapid light change will lead to confusion in operation, so that the effect of the film is not ideal. Today, in combination with Nikon Z 6, let's talk about what settings we need to pay attention to when the environment starts to dim.

Choose Nikon Z 6 to shoot, through the real-time view screen, we can observe the light changes in the shooting scene at any time, and change the exposure parameters according to the light changes. WYSIWYG real-time monitoring allows us to obtain more accurate exposure information, and we can also cooperate with the built-in VR shock absorber function of the Z 6 fuselage to expand the use space of the safety shutter as much as possible under low light conditions, thus reducing the jitter problems that may be caused by low-speed shutter shooting with hand-held dim light.


For a photo, accurate focus and focus operation is also essential. In a low light environment, low brightness (nightfall) or high contrast (sunset) images will have an impact on the camera's autofocus, making it more difficult to shoot and focus. After upgrading firmware version 2.0, Nikon Z 6 is able to expand the focus performance of Z 6 when shooting still images and videos in low light environments. It can be as low as-3.5EV (when shooting a still image, AF-S,ISO 100Magnec 2.0 °C), allowing the camera to get a faster autofocus response in a dark scene. Moreover, if the low-light autofocus (AF) function is enabled when shooting still images, the low-light detection range can reach-6EV, which can shoot subjects that are difficult to distinguish even with the naked eye.
