Nikon z6ii and Z7ii Menu Setup

In this video, I’ll show you my menu setup for the Nikon Z6ii and Z7ii mirrorless cameras. Includes by step instructions with lots of tips and tricks along the way.

Also, yes, I did change the intro. Believe it or not, I had a constant stream of complaints about the old one – apparently it was “too load and fast” for some of the viewers. Based on the their impassioned complaints, I was fearful that eventually someone would press the play button and the shock of the intro would cause them to jump right out of their chair. ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ .

Let me know if you think I should stick with the new into or if you liked the old one better. Enjoy the video ๐Ÿ™‚

.

As mentioned in this video, I have a number of related videos that dive deeper into some of these setups. I have them embedded below:

Thanks Steve. As usual your explanations are spot on, best of anyone that I see and hear. I Just got a z7ii, used your setup video for initial settings. Sold my d500 and z6 for this. I’m trying to get my too big gear kit down a bit…now I have to sell a couple of lenses!

Don’t care about the intro – neither are my kind of music – but both are excellent because both are brief and then you get straight on with the content, so full marks Steve.

You didn’t mention the U1,2,3 settings and how you would use them. Seems like a nice way to switch from wildlife to landscape etc

The intro shoots you into the 21th century. A leap forward for the viewing pleasure.

Great timing, Steve Perry. I got my Z 5 & Z 6 replacement, a Z 6II today, so I put in a ready battery and checked the firmware, and started your video. Keep up the great work.

I just recently purchased a A7II and have a D850. I am hoping Nikon updates the software to improve tracking also change the menu settings to allow the camera to be turned on by looking through the EVS and not depend on the shut off timer timing. My main type of photography is birds in flight so far I’m not overly impressed with the Z7II compared to the D850.

Great video, but I’ve found one error–you say that you can’t set AF area mode AF/[+] (which you’ve set to the movie record button) to a function button but you can! I have it set to FN-1.

Definitely like the new intro. The old one made me think I was about to view a WWF video. Hereโ€™s a Suggestion for your โ€œDrinks with Steveโ€ Live Stream… Suggest to people that they prefix questions with a (or multiple) ? Marks. That way you donโ€™t have to sift through all the โ€œHi Steveโ€ and โ€œHi from (fill in the blank)โ€ and get right to the questions. For example: ????I have focus problems (chatter) with my 80-400 lens on my D500. Iโ€™ve sent it in for repair twice and Nikon says there is nothing wrong with it. Any suggestions. I… Read more »
