Nikon Z50 Launched as the Company’s First APS-C Mirrorless Camera, Features a 20.9-Megapixel Sensor, 4K Video Recording

Autofocusing is achieved through a 209-point Hybrid AF system that boasts Nikon's Eye Detection AF feature (the first time it has appeared in a DX-format camera). The unit can record 4K (3,840 x 2,160) video at up to 30 fps, or movie-makers can take advantage of 120 fps slow-mo if the resolution is dropped to Full HD. It uses a new battery, the EN-EL25, which offers around 300 shots per charge, and in-camera battery charging is possible via a Micro USB port (rather than USB C). Adding the 16-50mm lens pushes the price to $996.95, while both kit lenses drive the price to just under $1400.

Nikon places the Z50 alongside its mid-level DSLRs the D7500 and D500, giving an indication of who it expects to buy the camera. In addition, these lenses can be bought separately for $299 and $349, respectively.

Half the size of the full-frame sensor used in the Z7 and Z6, APS-C sensors use the centre rectangle of a lens, often meaning the best parts of the lens without as much fall-off. After months of rumors, the Nikon Z50 is joining the crowded marketplace as Nikon's first APS-C mirrorless camera. "The Noct is a testament to Nikon's commitment to optical innovation driven by more than a century of expertise", said Jay Vannatter, Executive Vice President, Nikon Inc. That makes two different camera systems launched a year apart, which is quite a pace for a conservative company like Nikon. The mirrorless system allows 11fps continuous shooting, silent shutter, and marvelous low light performance.

Before we delve into the video capabilities of the Z 50, let's touch on the more basic elements, with Nikon opting for a 20.9 megapixel CMOS sensor. The AF points span about 87& of the frame horizontally and 85% of the frame vertically. The Z50 also has built-in Wi-Fi 802.1ac and Bluetooth for connecting to a smartphone. Users can also transfer video to their smart device with support for RAW images and advanced remote capture.

Isn't it small! The Z 50 itself is very compact, but the 16-50mm pancake lens is what really makes this camera portable. Curiously, neither Z DX lens has weather sealing.

Compact telephoto zoom lens: fast-focusing lens with normal to telephoto 50-250mm focal length range (FX- format/35mm equivalent 75-375mm). When paired with the new lenses, Dual Detect Optical VR is enabled on the Z 50 to help control the effects of camera shake when shooting.

Meanwhile, the company also shared the latest roadmap for upcoming Z-mount lenses, with a 70-200mm f/2.8 and 100-400mm lens in the works.

Serving as the fastest NIKKOR lens model so far, the new NIKKOR Z 58mm f/0.95 S Noct is a manual focus prime lens geared toward a variety of applications, including portraits, landscapes, and astrophotography.

The price of $859.95 is only for the camera, however, if you take one kit lens 16-50mm you will $999.95 and both kit lenses including Nikkor Z DX 50-250mm for $1349.95, the camera is also compatible with F-mount SLR lenses using FTZ adapter. It's a great low light performer too, with a native ISO range of ISO100-51,200 at up to -4EV.

Measured in accordance with CIPA standards. Despite the smaller size, the Z 50 means business thanks to that protruding grip. Actual prices are set by dealers and are subject to change at any time.
