Nikon Z6 Underwater Video

Video by John Brigham

We took the Nikon Z6 down to Crystal River, Florida to get a quick feeling for its performance underwater. Suffice it to say that we were impressed. This compact full frame mirrorless camera is a pleasure to shoot and the resulting video is super sharp with great color and a wide dynamic range. 

The Nikon 8-15mm Fisheye is one of our top choices for Nikon full frame cameras and it performed extremely well with the Z6 using the FTZ adapter. This video was shot using the Compact 8" Dome Port which is smaller and easier to travel with than the full size 8" dome.

The compact 8" dome is very low volume which makes it less buoyant and well balanced underwater. When using the full size 8" dome, the Trim Weight System # 47140 is essential for shooting smooth video as it allows you to adjust the weight distribution of the system to be almost perfectly neutral and balanced front to back.

We can't wait to get the Z6 back in the water, so you can be sure you'll be hearing more about this camera soon. In the meantime we highly recommend trying it for yourself!
