Nikon’s Z7 II has a 45MP sensor in a fantastically solid and well-sealed body, so when the snow started coming down across western Washington State, it seemed like the perfect camera to document our first major snow event in two years. Thankfully, the controls are pretty easy to operate with gloves, too.

So, as we tend to the final bits of our long-awaited Nikon Z7 II review, come with us for a little tour of North Seattle under a blanket of fresh powder. You’ll find a blizzard of new images (see what we did there) scattered throughout this gallery.
