Thought I would pass this along to anyone photographing people right now using their eye/face detect autofocus. We had a shoot last weekend and were setting up for a business headshot outdoors. We decided to see how well eye/face detect autofocus was working in the Nikon Z6II. Bottom line is if you shoot portraits, the eye/face detect is a game changer on the Z6II and Z7II. You don’t even have to think about focus, the camera locks onto the eye and stays there. But we did notice one thing. With your face mask pulled up high, this mode sometimes would not detect the eye/face. Good to know if you are experiencing some inconsistency here. The yellow focus square won’t even turn on if the mask is high above the nose.
Here is another tip using your Z. Turn on Airplane mode in the set up menu. This turns off any background functions like bluetooth syncing, and will extend your battery life. When you need to sync back up, just go in and turn Airplane mode back off.
