Coming Soon. Nikon Z50
- 14 Oct, 2019
Introducing the new APS-C format Nikon Z50 with a 20.9-megapixel CMOS sensor, weighs under a pound, and has a flip-down rear display for selfie photos and vlogging.
The camera is capable of 11 fps continuous shooting (with autofocus / exposure) and has a 209-point phase-detect autofocus system, which covers 87 percent of the frame horizontally and 85 percent vertically, according to Nikon. When in low-light mode, the Z50 can focus at -4 EV, which is better than some of the company’s DSLRs like the D7500. The standard ISO range is 100 up to 51,200. There’s a pop-up flash built into the camera as well. Nikon’s eye-detection autofocus is included, and you can toggle between different eyes if there are multiple people in frame.
You get 4K video recording at up to 30 fps (with full sensor readout), and there’s also a 120 fps slow-mo mode in 1080p. Videos can be shared wirelessly from the camera to your phone, which is a first for Nikon cameras. A time-lapse mode is also available in-camera, and Nikon includes multiple picture control modes that you can customize to your liking to reduce the need for post-processing before uploading your shots to Instagram.
The Z50 has a magnesium alloy construction and some level of weather resistance. There’s a single UHS-I SD card slot, and the camera uses a Micro-B connector and also has an all-new battery, the EN-EL25.
