Nikon has launched a new Z series camera called the Z50, which, unlike the Z7 and Z6 full-frame cameras, is the company’s first cropped sensor (APS-C) mirrorless camera. It can shoot 4K video without boasting a slim and light body, based on Z-Mount. The camera will be available in November for $ 860 (approximately Rs. 61,100). Nikon has announced two new companion lenses for the Z50 – a 16-50mm f / 3.5-6.3 VR and a 50-250mm f / 4.5-6.3 VR.
The camera has a new lightweight, ergonomic design that makes it easy to carry around. It has a magnesium-alloy body with the same button layout as the Z6 and Z7. You’ll find a single card slot with a downward, tilted 3.2-inch touchscreen display, an OLED viewfinder with 2.36 million dot resolution, pop-up flash, and support for UHS-II speeds. The camera is capable of shooting burst shots up to 11fps and can shoot up to 30fps up to 4K resolution and up to 120fps up to 1080p resolution. It lacks a headphone socket but you’ll get a microphone input.
It has an Expedite 6 image processor, an ISO range of 100-51,200, on-sensor phase detection autofocus, and a battery life rated at 320 shots per charge. The Z50 also has built-in Wi-Fi 802.1ac and Bluetooth for connecting to smartphones.
“The new Nikon Z50 is a small but capable camera that brings the best of the Nikon Z series to discover, share and employ all kinds of manufacturers,” said Jay Vanator, Executive Vice President, Nikon.
“The new NIKKOR Z DX lenses extend the Nikon Z series and provide new creative tools for those who want to take their photo and video passion to new heights,” he added.
