Innovation in your hands
Take it easy with the outstanding operability of the Z 50. An intuitive user interface means quick access to personalised settings and modes instantly through the i menu. Cleverly laid out touch keys allow you to operate this camera with one hand, even when you’re looking through the electronic viewfinder. Great for flat-lay compositions, vlogging, or even just group selfies, this camera is equipped with a 180° tilting monitor with touch operation, so you can effortlessly capture your preferred compositions. The silent mode feature lets you capture shots without disturbing your subject, perfect for weddings and stage performances.
Keep it easy
Forget fumbling with buttons or slippery surfaces. Great on the go, the camera is equipped with an ergonomic grip for a firm grasp and easy reach across the buttons. Form meets function with its cutting-edge aesthetics and design, such as the new mode dial that allows you to easily change shooting modes in a heartbeat. Designed with portability and comfort in mind, the Z 50 features a lightweight body frame that weighs similar to a regular tablet at approximately 450g.
Capture your passion with 20.88 million effective megapixels and the EXPEED 6 image-processing engine. Adopting the same hybrid autofocus (AF) system as the Z 7 and the Z 6, the Z 50 comes equipped with one of the first Nikon CMOS sensors that incorporates phase-detection AF. With 2091 AF points covering approximately 87% horizontally and approximately 85% vertically of the frame, easily capture moving objects, even at the periphery. For portrait shots where the clarity of the eyes matter, eye-detection AF is available and allows an intuitive selection of the intended eye focus, even when multiple people are within the frame.
For the vloggers and the content creators, smoother scenes help to immerse audiences into a three-dimensional world, drawing them further into the story. Capture your videos in 4K UHD with no crop at up to 30 frames per second. Experience full video functionality akin to the Z 7 and Z 6. Easily record in self-portrait mode with touch operation – perfect for vloggers. With the availability of time-lapse and slow-motion, explore a wealth of creative options with minimal need for post-production.
Shoot and share your creations seamlessly with SnapBridge 2.6. Enjoy remote shooting and easy transferring of your images and movies to compatible mobile devices for an even more convenient shooting experience.
NIKKOR Z DX 16-50MM F/3.5-6.3 VR
Weighing only approx. 135 g (4.8 oz), the NIKKOR Z DX 16-50mm f/3.5-6.3 VR is an ideal partner for the compact Z 50. Thanks to its retractable-lens mechanism, it achieves a small and light body that’s highly portable, without sacrificing optical performance. The lens covers everything from wide-angle landscapes to portraits, all with edge-to-edge sharpness, defying expectations for a lens of this class. As you can shoot with sharp focus as close as 0.2 m*1 (0.66 ft) from the subject, it’s also perfect for tabletop photography. The vibration reduction system offers an effect equivalent to a shutter speed 4.5 stops*2 faster, minimizing image blur.
*1 At 24 mm zoom position. *2 Based on the CIPA Standard. This value is achieved when attached to a DX-format camera with the camera’s VR function set to “NORMAL”, and when zoom is set to the maximum telephoto position. *3 At 50 mm zoom position; 1 m (3.29 ft) at 250 mm zoom position.
