Nikon is betting everything on the retro aesthetic with its latest Z-series mirrorless camera. The organization says the new Z FC, formally styled “Z fc,” is designed explicitly to bring out its FM2 film SLR from the ’80s, with dedicated dials for settings like shutter speed, exposure compensation, and ISO.
The approach is like the Nikon DF, a retro-style full-frame DSLR that Nikon released in 2013. Be that as it may, the DF was a lot bigger than the film cameras it was inspired by.
The Z FC has a 20.9-megapixel APS-C sensor (and obviously no SLR mirror and crystal), which implies the subsequent camera is undeniably more compact and looks much nearer to something like a FM2.
Past the outside, the Z FC is an advanced camera with broadly comparative specs to the Z50. There’s a vari-point touchscreen, an OLED electronic viewfinder, USB-C charging, SnapBridge remote availability, and obviously the now-requisite ability to utilize it’s anything but a webcam.
While the camera can be shot in completely manual mode with the dials, there’s likewise a switch for PASM activity, and you can check opening settings with a minuscule LCD on the top plate.
The native ISO range is 100-51,200 and there’s a hybrid AF system with 209 focuses across 87% of the casing. Video isn’t actually a focus with the Z FC, obviously, yet it can shoot at up to 4K/30fps.
As a Z-mount camera, the Z FC will actually want to utilize any of the full-frame lenses that are local to cameras like the Z6 and Z7, yet Nikon’s lineup of DX/APS-C lenses that can capitalize on the Z FC’s little size is as yet deficient.
Nikon is declaring one new prime focal point today, in any case — a 28mm (42mm same) f/2.8 that will be accessible in an exceptional release with styling that makes it’s anything but a more older Nikkor D focal point. Nikon will likewise release a silver rendition of its 16-50mm hotcake zoom close by the Z FC, and says a DX 18-140mm travel zoom will be accessible sooner or in the not so distant future.
The ZFC will cost $959.95 body-just, $1,099.95 with the silver 16-50mm lens, and $1,199.95 with the 28mm lens. Every one of the three choices will be released in dark and silver late July. Nikon is likewise releasing six extra color options that will be sold exclusively through its own site.
