Nikon Z7 vs Z7 II Differences

the Z7 II has the ability to shoot at 10 frames per second in raw this is a slight improvement over the previous version Z7 which is able to shoot up to 9 frames per second in raw with such large raw file sizes.

Nikon added a second processor in the Z7 II camera which gives more shots in the buffer when using cf express cards, the buffer size is triple over the original Z7.


while retaining the incredible details made possible by the camera’s 45 megapixel sensor and despite the large amounts of data being transferred to the memory card the buffer can handle 77 shots that’s 3.3 times the buffer size of the Z7.
