Low light issue with electronic viewfinder cameras

6 months 1 week ago #638057 by Vladimir
I had the chance to use a Nikon Z6 last night with some friends.  My buddy just picked up this camera and let me play around with it.  Actually no one could figure out how to get a good focus of the stars using the LCD screen in the back. 

How are you focusing in low light situations?

Doesn’t the z have focus peaking? That’s what I use for the moon/stars on my Sony.

Good idea!  Honestly I never even thought of that.  Do you keep focus peaking on all the time?

Z6 and Z7 has focus peaking when in manual.  That should work.

I leave it on all of the time and it automatically kicks on when I go in to manual. I shoot mostly macro, so I use M all of the time and Focus Peaking is the bees kneees!
