Designed for the everyday creator, the Z 50 is a small, simple, and high-caliber camera option for users looking to upgrade their imaging. The Z 50 packs a 20.9MP DX CMOS sensor and the EXPEED 6 engine to deliver sharp, vivid images and UHD 4K video in a range of conditions, even low light. Fast autofocus, including Eye AF, are included here and the camera offers 20 Creative Picture Controls and 10 Special Effects for quickly getting your images and video ready to publish. Users can also capture UHD 4K, time-lapse, and 1080p 120 fps slow motion video and then immediately clip and trim it on the camera.

Nikon boasts excellent build quality with the Z 50. It is weather sealed and offers users a sharp rear touchscreen and electronic viewfinder for composing images. The rear screen can be flipped 180 degrees downward to activate a Self Portrait Mode that is great for snapshots and handheld vlogging. Shooters can also activate a Silent Photography Mode for absolutely noise-free captures. For sharing images, the Z 50 is equipped with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. Using the Nikon SnapBridge app for iOS and Android users can transfer photos and videos, as well as use the phone as a remote monitor and control for the camera.

For lenses, the Z 50 uses the Z mount, meaning it will work with all existing Z series lenses, including those designed for full-frame. Nikon is releasing a pair of DX-format lenses that pair perfectly with the Z 50. This includes a 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 that provides a versatile 24-75mm equivalent field of view and a telephoto 50-250mm f/4.5-6.3 that offers a 75-375mm equivalent focal length. These are meant to be lightweight, effective choices to start your mirrorless kit. The Z 50 mirrorless camera will be made available as body only, as a kit with the 16-50mm lens, or a kit with both the 16-50mm and 50-250mm lenses.

The NIKKOR Z 58mm f/0.95 S Noct Lens. This has been a long time coming and offers incredible image quality along with an ultra-fast aperture that should allow for incredible control over depth of field. It offers excellent build quality, as well, and has a smooth manual focus operation. Another addition to the Z Series is the also long-awaited MB-N10 Multi-Power Battery Pack for the Z 6 and Z 7. This will hold two EN-EL15b Batteries for dramatically extending the camera’s run time.
