Like many of the photo industry’s leading brands, Nikon has never shied away from the creation of mirrorless cameras. And while these high-performance peripherals have somewhat surpassed their mirrored counterparts in recent years, the market for a crop-sensor variant is still small, helping to set the stage for the company’s newest release — the Z 50 APS-C mirrorless camera.
The Z 50 features a handful of the company’s most recent technological innovations. Like many of its competitors, it embraces its ability to pack a veritable slew of professional accommodations into a small, form-fitting package, bringing a 20.9-megapixel DX CMOS image sensor, 3.2-inch touch-sensitive LCD display, and EXPEED 6 image processor to the table, while remaining under 14-ounces. To draw enthusiasts toward the company’s first APS-C Z-line offering, Nikon has introduced a blistering-fast 209-Point Hybrid AF system, improved facial recognition/eye-tracking, and a versatile tilting LCD that makes 4K UHD vlogging, recording, and video capture easier than ever. We’ve only begun to scratch the surface with the new Nikon Z 50, so head to Nikon’s website if you want to learn more. And while you’re there, you can also pre-order the platform for $1,000.
