I've finally gotten some time to explore the Z7II and a new Z50. We hear lots of things that are difficult or not possible with the Z cameras, but here are a few images from just the past week under some of those challenging conditions.

This one had about 3 stops of shadow recovery in the foreground, and some highlight protection with the sunstar. I could not find the banding.

Obviously, sunstars are quite possible. Still no banding.

Birds in flight are supposed to be impossible - especially when they are backlit.

This black skimmer was just above the water - but the camera could pick it up

This is pretty straight forward - a long exposure pre-dawn image. The challenge was not getting wet.

Finally - this is our new dog - a rescue - with the Z50 and animal eye detect. I'm sure you heard that Eye Detect does not work. Wrong - it's not 100% with all subjects, but it's pretty good.
