Nikon Z6 on Beach Vacation

The photo above is of Brown Pelicans. The Brown Pelican is the only pelican that uses the plunge-dive while fishing. The bird flies some 20 or 30 feet above the water. [NIKON Z 6, Sigma VR Zoom 120-300mm f/2.8G IF-ED, Mode = Manual, ISO 800, 1/4000, ƒ/5.6, (35mm = 360)]

I am loving shooting with the Nikon Z6 camera during our families vacation at Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina.

Combining the Nikon Z6 with the Godox V860IIN flashes I was able to get some good group photos and portraits on the beach.

I love the ability to see what I am getting before shooting. Less chimping and checking the LCD. Also using the Electronic View Finder I can pretty much see what I am getting. While seeing the histogram is always helpful it is less necessary with the mirrorless as compared to the DSLR.

I loved taking early morning walks each day carrying the Nikon Z6. For this photo I used the tilting LCD screen to get the camera low to the ground.

I enjoy the dynamic range that the camera is capturing as well.

I love being able to capture the family as well in candids.

I like how the face recognition and eye tracking function works.

All positives so far in using the camera during our family vacation.
