A New List of Nikon Z6 III Specifications

NikonRumors shared a new specification list of the Nikon Z6 III that was provided by a reliable source. This list includes specs such as “20fps 14bit RAW”, “1/16000s”, “6K 60p N-RAW”, and “4K 60p ProRes RAW”. The official announcement will be in the next several days.

Nikon Z6 III Rumored Specifications:

  • 6k60 NRAW, 4k120 (crop), 4k60 full ProRes RAW
  • New higher resolution EVF: 5.76m dot
  • Improved LCD
  • 20fps still RAW (14bit)
  • 120fps stills jpeg
  • 1/16000 shutter speed
  • 299 points AF
  • 8-stop VR (same system as the Nikon Zf)
  • CFexpress+SD memory cards
  • PSAM Dial
  • Camera body size and overall dimension are similar to the Nikon Z6 II: 3-5mm longer width becuase of the LCD hinge and a few mm thicker
  • The overall height (bottom to the EVF) remains the same but the actual camera is 2-3mm taller
  • The grip button layouts and design look similar to the Nikon Z8 apart from the command dial which is the same as the Z6II
  • All other button layouts are the same as the Z6II
  • The Z6III logo is on the top, just like on the Z8/Z9
  • Z logo in the front is also like the Z8 but below the current Z6II focus sensor
  • The Z6III body overall is about 30-40g heavier than the Z6II
  • The Z6III body inherits the design from the Z8 – this is why a few months ago I reported it as a mini-Z8 (the Nikon Z6III is a mini Z8, the Nikon Z8 was a mini Z9)
  • Battery EN-EL15
  • A few other features from Z8 and Zf are also coming to Z6 III but I do not have the details yet

In contrast to earlier spec details primarily sourced from Chinese sites, you explicitly assert that the information comes from a credible original source. Nonetheless, the reliability of this source is not disclosed by Nikon Rumors.

While the provided details do not explicitly identify the sensor or processor, they do highlight support for high-speed shutter and continuous shooting. With features such as 14-bit RAW at 20fps and a rapid shutter speed of 1/16000 seconds, it appears distinct from the current 24-megapixel back-illuminated CMOS sensor. This raises the question of whether it employs a stacked CMOS, though this seems impractical considering the potential significant increase in price from the Z6 II (considering the Sony a9 II’s selling price is $4,498).

The potential of the new 24-megapixel sensor remains uncertain. However, it stands out as no other manufacturer utilizes a high-spec sensor, except for the EOS R6 and R6 II. Personally, the specification of “20fps 14bit RAW, 1/16000 seconds” appears somewhat unrealistic.

As for body size and design, the information suggests a hybrid camera positioned between the Z8 and Z6. Despite this, the overall size closely resembles the Z6II, with limited similarities to the Z8.
