Nikon Z50 Mirrorless Camera
Nikon Z50 is the first APS-C mirrorless camera for Nikon. Nikon Z50 is targetted towards the new breed of photographers/videographers who have a smaller budget compared to buy the Nikon Z6 camera. Interestingly the Z50 has so many features of the Z6 which the professional guys would also love it. NikonZ50 features a large inner diameter of 55mm and a short flange focal distance of 16mm. The camera body can be used with the Z mount lenses and also with FTZ Lens Adapter, you can use the F mount lenses. So if you are Nikon user, you don’t have to buy new ones and can use your F mount lenses with the adapter.
The Z 50 is a high functionality ergonomic camera with a 3.2” touch-screen 1040k-dot monitor and an effective pixel count of 20.88 megapixels that delivers remarkable colour, clarity and sharpness. Featuring a new CMOS sensor and image-processing engine, the Z 50 adopts the same hybrid autofocus (AF) system as the Z 7 and the Z 6 and comes equipped with one of the first Nikon CMOS sensors that incorporates phase-detection AF and eye-detection AF which can be toggled to have the focus effectively centred to the eye or face of the subject. Equipped with in-built Bluetooth® and Wi-Fi® for SnapBridge 2.6, enables users to instantly share their snapshots on social media. The camera’s wide array of movie functions, including full-pixel readout with no crop in 4K UHD, Full HD 120p with audio, 4K UHD and Full HD time-lapse will be appreciated by photography enthusiasts and filmmakers alike.
