Dpreview confirms Z6 has much better video quality than the Z7

Dpreview writes:

The Z6 and a7 III are taking different approaches to their oversampled 4K output with the Sony doing a better job capturing fine detail. The Z6 on the other hand looks to be using larger-radius sharpening (by default) which results in a punchier look out of camera. As expected, the Z6’s full-frame 4K looks better than the Z7’s full-frame 4K, which doesn’t use all its pixel rows, reducing both resolution and low-light performance.

The Z6’s cropped 4K also appears to use larger-radius sharpening than the Sony’s and looks similar (but still slightly better) when compared to the Z7’s. Interestingly the Z6’s 4K full-frame footage looks very similar to its 4K APS-C cropped footage. There may be a bit of a noise penalty using the later, but detail is broadly similar.
