Nikon Z50 camera 16-50mm lens & FTZ adaptor Summary
The new Nikon Z50 is the first Z series DX-format mirrorless camera, launched at the same time as two completely new compatible Nikkor Z DX zoom lenses. Offering superb image quality, the all-new Nikon Z50 captures perfectly focused photos and 4K movies that are rich in detail, depth, and colour. It is aimed squarely at both stills and video photographers being is a great hybrid option.
The body is equipped with a high resolution 20.9MP DX-format (APS-C) CMOS sensor, bringing the optical advantages of mirrorless into a robust, compact DX body. Features inherited from the acclaimed Nikon Z7 and Z6 cameras include the wide Z-Mount for lenses, and the fast Hybrid-AF autofocus system. The Z50 also features a sharp electronic viewfinder, a tilting touchscreen, and the deep grip that makes Nikon mirrorless cameras comfortable to hold.
Other features include Intelligent Eye-Detection AF, which is ideal for shooting portraits, and up to 11 fps continuous shooting (with AF/AE) for action and sports photography. The Z 50 is fully compatible with the included FTZ Mount Adapter, which allows F-mount Nikkor DSLR lenses to be utilised. This will appeal to existing DX format photographers who are keen to move to a lightweight mirrorless option, whilst keeping their existing lenses.
Both of the new Z Mount DX lenses are optimised for the superb light-gathering capability of the wide Nikon Z mount. These zoom lenses focus quickly, quietly, and steadily, making them as great for video as they are for stills. This is ideal for videographers as the new body captures high resolution 4K video.
Despite the deeper grip, the body is remarkably compact at just 395g and will appeal to travellers as a lightweight ‘go anywhere’ companion. Approximate measurements demonstrate what a truly compact this is at just 126mm x 93mm x 60mm. The high resolution 3.2 inch screen also provides a welcome touch interface, which is second nature to many now.
“Whether your passion is photography or video, Nikon’s new Z 50 mirrorless system camera offers an exciting blend of creativity and power. Aside from the new NIKKOR Z DX lenses, you get seamless compatibility with all Z mount lenses. And if you have F-mount lenses and accessories in your bag, you can use them too. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a Nikon DSLR owner or a first time Nikon user: the Nikon DX mirrorless system gives you plenty of room for growth.” Robert Harmon, Senior Commercial Planning Manager, Nikon UK.
