Nikon pushes out first Z-mount, DX-format mirrorless
12 October, 2019, 18:54
Nikon's first DX format mirrorless camera is here, and it comes with two Z mount lenses to shoot everything from creative still photos to high-quality 4K video.
"The new Nikon Z 50 is a small yet capable camera that brings the best of the Nikon Z series to all kinds of creators to discover, share and engage", said Nikon's Jay Vannatte.
But not everyone wants a mirrorless with a big sensor, and if you've fancied Nikon's smaller sensors, the APS-C models like the D7500 or D500, and preferred it a little lighter and quieter, something to suit may well be on the way.
There's a 209-point hybrid autofocus setup, and Nikon reports that it's the company's first DX-format camera to include Eye-Detection AF. The Japanese company has also added video functions such as slow-mo and timelapse, with the latter yielding 4K UHD and Full HD content in-camera. It's lower-resolution than its full-frame cousins at 2.36 million dots rather than 3.6 million, but we found it to be sharp and exhibit few signs of the lag that have plagued some of Nikon's competitors.
For composing your images there's a 2360k-dot electronic viewfinder, or you can use the tilting 1040k-dot LCD monitor - unlike the Z6/Z7, the Z50's screen can tilt to face all the way forwards, with a dedicated selfie mode.

Nikon has also introduced the first two Z Series DX lenses alongside the Z 50: the Z DX 16-50mm f/3.5-6.3 VR and the Z DX 50-250mm f/4.5-6.3 VR.
As such, the Nikon Z50 will come in two variations when it launches in Australia at the end of the month, either in a single lens kit with the 16-50mm for $1799 or with both lenses for $2099. The other is the compact Nikkor Z DX 16-50mm f/3.5-6.3 VR zoom. There's also a 50-250mm f/4.5-6.3 zoom lens if you need to reach subjects further away from you. Both lenses promise reduced focus breathing, a customizable control ring for smooth control of aperture or exposure compensation, as well as fast and quiet operation. It's a great low light performer too, with a native ISO range of ISO100-51,200 at up to -4EV. A vast selection of traditional F-Mount NIKKOR lenses is also available to shooters via the Mount Adapter FTZ, with many lenses retaining functions such as VR and AF.
The NIKKOR Z 58mm f/0.95 S Noct Lens is set to start shipping on October 31 for a suggested retail price of $7,999.95.
Finally, for anyone who has been waiting for the super high-end 58mm f/0.95 Noct lens Nikon announced past year, Nikon announced that it will be available on October 31st for a staggering $8,000 (UK price TBA, translates to £6,500). Despite the smaller size, the Z 50 means business thanks to that protruding grip. Please Note: Nikon cameras having Bluetooth built-in can only be used with a compatible smart device with Bluetooth 4.0 or later (i.e., a smart device that supports Bluetooth Smart Ready/Low Energy).
