Get to Know The Exciting Z 50 Mirrorless Camera

For folks looking to up their photography game while going mirrorless, the Nikon Z 50 may be the ideal camera choice. It’s the smallest and lightest Nikon mirrorless camera with a DX sensor. The camera can capture high resolution still pictures and 4K UHD video using the full sensor.

Powerful technology built-in

The camera’s sensor and image processor—the heart of the camera—make it a powerful yet portable camera. The sensor is 20.9 megapixels in resolution, 15 times the surface area size normally found in a smartphone’s camera, and is based on the design of high end Nikon DSLR sensors. The processor—EXPEED 6—along with the image sensor and large Z series lens mount mean the camera is great in low light, AF performance, sharpness and clarity for both photos and video.

Blogging and Vlogging

The Z 50 is packed with features that are sure to make it your everyday camera, from its built-in selfie mode, great for the blogger or vlogger in you, to its ability to shoot square images (great for Instagram) and vertical video (ideal for Instagram Stories). Vertical videos require the use of additional third party software for post production.

Because the camera houses a 20.9 MP sensor, portraits and selfies will be high quality and flattering, landscapes vibrant, low light full of detail and action shots sharp. The camera even has Eye Autofocus built-in for still photography, which makes it so easy to take great portraits—since the camera tracks your subject’s eyes to make sure they’re sharp.

The Z 50 uses a technology known as Phase Detection Autofocus (PDAF) for video. What this means is that you won’t be worrying about focusing while shooting video because the AF is super reliable and fast.

The Z 50's LCD can drop down underneath the camera body—and that switches on Selfie Mode, so you can easily hold the camera and see what the camera sees on the LCD. Selfie mode works for still images and video.

Just like your smartphone, the Z 50 features touch control. You can scroll through menus and change settings with the touch of a finger. Touch shutter allows you to focus on an area of the scene and snap a photo simply by tapping the LCD.

Slow Motion Vertical Video - Vertical video is ideal for certain social media platforms and the preferred way to view videos on a smartphone. The Z 50 lets you shoot slow motion vertically or horizontally.

The Z 50 is the carry around, easy to take everywhere, always on you camera that will let your creativity shine!
