This page details the settings that I deem important for usage of the Nikon Z7. If not listed, that means I generally leave the setting unchanged. Explanations of why each setting is what it is should be helpful in understanding how to get the most out of the Z7.


Non-cpu lens data = <configure as needed>
Needed for older non-CPU lenses, such as the original Zeiss ZF (ZF.2 are chipped).

Image quality = NEF (RAW) + JPEG fine★
Initially, macOS won’t preview NEF files from the Nikon Z7, so I shot NEF+JPEG just for easier perusing. There may be an additional benefit: in playback mode in highly magnified view, the image quality might be better (versus the camera displaying a highly compressed embedded JPEG in the NEF).
