Nikon’s Z6 und Z7 feature an additional display on the top of the body. The control panel displays shutter time, aperture and other information. The display’s brightness can be set by the user or adjusted automatically by the camera – the default.
To determine the right setting for the brightness, the camera measures the light that enters from the scene through the lens. Bright scene: brightness gets turned up; dim or dark scene: brightness turned down.
A little animation to show the behavior with the camera set to aperture priority. Note how the shutter speed changes:
This works quite well in most situations. To set the brightness manually, go to menu Setup > Control Panel Brightness. You can also switch off the display completely to save energy.
The panel will always show white text and symbols on black (or rather dark blue) background. It can’t be inverted.

Camera Creativ can recommend these digital cameras from personal experience. They all provide the best value in their respective category.
Large 1" sensor and 10x Leica lens make the ZS100 / TZ101 the perfect travel zoom.
4K Video, panos and a 60x zoom, combined with Pannys Post Focus in a portable package.
Grading up from a smartphone or compact? Then the Rebel T6 / 1300D might be for you.
APS-C DSLR for discriminating amateurs. With articulated screen and dedicated microphone port.
Best-selling mirrorless ILC with APS-C sized sensor and speedy AF. Currently at bargain prices.
APS-C ILC with 4K video, sensible feature set and nice EVF. Vast selection of lenses via adapter.
First gen. RX100 with 4x Zeiss lens. Still our standing recommendation, especially when on offer.
Posh compact with 1" sensor and very bright 4x zoom. Pocketable and with good manual controls.
Best feature and sensor set in any outdoor camera bar none, combined with clever software.
New in 2018 with 4K 60p support and improved stabilizer. Still the mother of all action cams.
