According to latest rumors, Nikon will soon announce a new retro-styled mirrorless camera like Nikon Df. This new camera could be named Nikon. I LOVE my Nikon Z fc! It's a sharp, lightweight well-made camera that makes it easy and fun to take great pictures. Especially when used with. The Nikon Z fc is an APS-C mirrorless camera that successfully brings back the design of the company's film cameras. It offers plenty of hands-on controls, a. SATURDAY NIGHT SUNDAY MORNING Specify whether the no other provider. Easy to set going to run. Needs to be do so, issue when fatal error.

FTC link-level disclosure: consider every link on this website as an affiliate link. Contact [NR]. The Z fc will primarily be sold in silver with black leatherette patches, but six versions with colored grip material will also be available in limited quantities. The main thing that's new in the Z fc is its retro styling and control system based on dedicated control dials.

But despite the classic looks, the Z fc is a modern camera at heart, offering a few features that should ensure it's seen as more than just a prettified Z The Z50 and Z fc likely share the same 'Expeed 6' processor, so these functions could probably be added to the older model via firmware, but Nikon may choose to maintain a distinction between the two. This means that it can be rotated all the way forward for vlogging working nicely in conjunction with the video Eye AF function , and also means the screen can be folded in to face the back of the camera, to protect the LCD panel when traveling.

Also aiding on-the-go photographers, the Z fc has a USB-C socket on its side which can be used to power the camera, as well as to charge the battery. It's a USB 3. The other new feature of the Z fc is the ability for it to accept firmware updates from a smartphone. It's a feature we've seen from other brands and we've found it unexpectedly convenient both in terms of finding out about updates, as well as keeping the camera up-to-date.

Nikon is targeting the Z fc to a younger audience interested in owning a fashionable camera for sharing photos on social media and vlogging. It's for "capturing iconic moments" read: photos for Instagram , according to the company.

Nikon has created the Z fc to be the opposite of the 'boring black camera,' with a design that traces back to actual Nikon film cameras of old. It's something to be noticed. Fujifilm has been making cameras with designs comparable to the Z fc for many years, with the X-T30 being the most similar.

While very capable for stills and video, it's not really a vlogging camera, as it lacks a fully articulating display. Technically speaking, Fujifilm's X-S10 is the better choice for vloggers, trading the manual control dials for a fully articulating display as well as in-body image stabilization, but design-wise it's a boring black camera. The Z fc's body closely resembles both the size and shape of Nikon's FM and FE SLRs, meaning it doesn't have the kind of protruding grip that's subsequently been deemed essential for holding a camera.

If you need something more to hold onto, there is a bolt-on accessory grip that screws into the base of the camera. Metallic-finish dials are pretty commonplace, but the Z fc uses solid aluminum dials and Nikon says the numbers are etched into the metal, rather than being printed or stuck on the surface. The ISO and shutter speed dials both have press locks on them, to prevent accidental operation, but this means they require slightly more considered operation.

Although the Z fc ends up looking a lot like Fujifilm's X-T30, its dials operate slightly differently. Rather than exposure mode being defined by the position of the ISO and shutter speed dials, the Z fc has a separate exposure mode switch.

For instance, setting this to 'A' for Aperture Priority deactivates the shutter speed dial, regardless of its position. Generally, the dedicated dials are used for controlling each exposure parameter, with a command dial on the front of the camera setting an aperture value.

One interesting quirk is that the ISO dial does not include an 'Auto' position. A small switch at the base of the shutter speed dial lets you jump from stills to movie shooting and back. As with the Z50 and other recent Nikons, you can opt for different settings for both modes allowing, for instance, different white balance and color mode settings for each style of shooting. However, the reliance on dedicated dials means that your exposure settings will tend to carry over, so you'll have to adjust them somewhat, each time you switch.

The Z fc is a pretty light-feeling camera, thanks to the extensive use of magnesium alloy in its construction. The lack of protruding handgrip helps keep the weight down below that of the Z The thin-gauge metal and rather light plastic battery door and viewfinder eye-cup molding make the camera feel less substantial than its metal construction might otherwise imply.

However, the dial feel particularly in terms of the front and rear command dials helps counteract this impression. The Z fc uses the same EN-EL25 battery as the Z50 and, since it shares that camera's screen, viewfinder, sensor and processor, it delivers a very similar battery life. The CIPA rating of shots per charge is reasonable, rather than great, even once you've taken into account the fact it's common to get twice as many shots as these ratings suggest, in day-to-day use.

The ability to recharge or directly power the camera using its USB socket will relieve some of this pressure, especially if you're already in the habit of packing a USB power bank for keeping your phone topped up on weekends away. When I first picked up the Z fc with its mm kit lens attached, my first thoughts were 'wow, this sure is light' and 'this can't possibly be metal'. As mentioned earlier, the Z fc is indeed metal, though it feels very thin on the front plate.

The top plate is a different story: it feels solid and the dials are perfectly designed. The display showing the aperture is so small that you can forget it's there, and the lack of a backlight makes it impossible to see in the dark. There were some aspects of the Z fc's design that I didn't care for. The body is covered with faux leather that I found quite slippery. Let's hope that Nikon will bring the GR-1 extension grip to the USA soon, which would give me more confidence when holding it.

I wouldn't complain about an add-on thumb rest, either, since there's not a lot of real estate on the back panel. I wish the menus could be operated with the control dials, which would be a lot faster than using the four-way controller or touchscreen. Those things aside, the Z fc is a pleasure to shoot with, which is on par with the other Z-series Nikons I've used.

The autofocus system is responsive, with animal AF picking up the eyes of birds and cats, and face detection locking onto a subject wearing sunglasses which was a pleasant surprise. While I have no plans to be a vlogger, the Z fc is more than capable of handling that task, if it's your thing.

As soon as you rotate the screen toward yourself, the camera disables all of the buttons except for the red one for video capture, so you won't accidentally change a setting. There isn't a quick menu or a way to start recording via the touchscreen. I was pleased with the footage I got after recording myself walking around the backyard a few times.

The oversampled 4K looks great and the AF system stuck to my eyes like glue, even with glasses. The combination of in-lens and electronic IS wasn't amazing by any means, however. Since many folks are using their cameras as webcams these days, I installed Nikon's webcam utility software on my laptop to see how things looked.

While I don't enjoy taking videos of myself, I do enjoy sharing my photos on Instagram and Facebook. Nikon's SnapBridge app has drastically improved over the years and worked almost flawlessly. It doesn't have a lot of bells and whistles, but remote camera control and image transfer to your phone or automatically to the cloud work well, which allowed me to get my photos onto Instagram moments after I took them.

Our studio test scene was photographed using the Nikkor Z 50mm F1. You can toggle the comparison tool above between JPEG and Raw modes by selecting the desired mode in the relevant dropdown. At the top right of our tool you'll see icons denoting 'Full' , 'Compare' , and 'Print'.

Colors in JPEGs are pleasing, with the golden yellows, warm greens and vibrant reds we've come to expect from Nikon. JPEG sharpening is pretty aggressive , with large radius sharpening causing more halos around edges also known as overshoot than competitors like Fujifilm and Sony. Noise reduction is quite effective at removing noise , but it comes at a considerable detail cost relative to the class-leading Sony.

There are two things we measure when looking at dynamic range: exposure latitude and ISO invariance. We're going to skip over the technical mumbo-jumbo and explain what they mean in the real world. Our exposure latitude test does what you might be tempted to do in bright light: reduce the exposure to capture additional highlights, then brighten the shadows. The Z fc's excellent sensor lets you brighten shadows at levels well beyond what one would normally do, with just a modest increase in noise.

The sensor is also highly ISO invariant, which you can see demonstrated in our test scene , where we've taken photos at different ISOs and brightened the Raw files. In layman's terms, this means that you can shoot at low ISOs to preserve highlights and brighten the image in Photoshop or similar and get the same result as if you boosted the ISO in-camera. One last thing worth mentioning is the camera's white balance system. There are three Auto WB settings: 'keep overall atmosphere', 'keep white' and 'keep warm lighting'.

We found that, on occasion, photos would have a blue cast to them using the 'keep overall atmosphere' setting. If you notice this while shooting, switching to the 'warm' option will give you a more realistic-looking white balance. The wide and auto-area modes offer your choice of person or animal AF, and both work well in our experience, from sunglasses-wearing people to shorebirds. The Z fc has no room for a joystick, so you'll be setting the location of the focus point with the four-way controller or via the touchscreen.

To check AF performance, we first use a single, central AF point with a subject approaching in a straight line. This checks how well the camera can assess the distance of the approaching subject and focus accordingly. Modern cameras have very little difficulty with this test and the Z fc was no exception.

Carey's bright yellow jacket was kept in focus during the whole run, which was shot at 11 fps using Nikon's Nikkor Z mm F2. The more challenging test has our subject weaving unpredictably, so we can evaluate how well the camera can identify and follow him around the frame, in addition to re-focusing. We put the Z fc into auto-area, selected Carey's face and fired away at 11 fps. The Z fc did very well in this test, though not perfectly.

On one occasion the camera decided that a person in the background was more interesting than our chosen subject, and focused on them until they were blocked by the bike, at which point the camera switched back to the desired subject. The video features on the Z fc are the same as those on the Z50, except for the addition of eye autofocus.

That means that you get uncropped 4K video sampled from the full width of the sensor, Full HD fps high-speed shooting, and dedicated video settings which lets you quickly flip between still and video modes without bringing over any unwanted settings. There's also focus peaking for manual focusing , zebra patterns for judging exposure , audio level control and the ability to set the microphone to better capture voices.

When shooting with manual exposure the camera also lets you lock in shutter speed and aperture to get the look you want, and adjust brightness via the exposure compensation dial. Although it's not quite as crisp as footage from the Fujifilm X-T30, which captures oversampled 4K, the Z fc still produces very nice looking video. Video captured at p at both 60p and p also looks solid.

The Z fc offers an electronic image stabilizer, which adds a modest crop. It doesn't give you gimbal-quality stability, and there's a slight drop in quality, but if you're not using a stabilized lens, it's worth a try. With the Nikon Z fc, the company has designed a capable camera but not class-leading for photography and vlogging and also a great tool for this seeking a hands-on experience not found on other Z-mount bodies.

It's essentially a Z50 — a camera that earned our silver award — in a different shell: and that's a good thing. Few will argue with the design of the camera: it looks fantastic. Handling is a mixed bag; the Z fc is light but feels a bit hollow. The faux leather that covers the body looks nice but is slippery in the hand Nikon offers an optional grip in some regions. The sense of quality from the sturdy metal dials are offset by the cheap plastic battery door.

Speaking of autofocus, the Z fc focuses quickly, detects eyes and faces with ease and does well at subject tracking, though Sony's and Canon's AF systems are more robust. The Z fc lacks a joystick for moving the AF point that's what the four-way controller or touchscreen are for , and you can't use the LCD to move the focus point when your eye is to the finder. When used for vlogging, the camera stuck to its subject without any 'hunting' and the built-in mic is satisfactory you can add your own via the 3.

On the whole, video quality is excellent at both 4K and resolutions including at fps , and there are a generous set of capture tools available. If you do a lot of hybrid shooting then the separate setting banks for stills and video will be much appreciated.

Something you won't find on the Z fc is a headphone jack for monitoring audio. The Z fc's image quality is also very solid, with plenty of Raw detail capture, low noise levels and plenty of room for brightening shadows. We did notice that JPEGs often had a noticeable 'cool' look to them using the default auto white balance setting.

Switching to the 'warmer' version made color more pleasing. We think Nikon has succeeded at what they set out to do with the Z fc. It took the guts from the generic-looking Z50 and created an inexpensive camera with a genuinely retro design that dates back to the company's FM film cameras. The camera is stylish and, dare we say, hip, and will turn a lot of head when you're out capturing your memories via still or video photography.

While we chose the Fujifilm X-T30 as the direct competitor to the Z fc due to all of its physical controls, if you don't mind losing the dials, the company's X-S10 is the better choice, thanks to its in-body image stabilization. Both cameras produce excellent still image quality and offer good but, again, not class-leading AF. Both cameras offer Log video output, as well as mic and headphone sockets, with the X-S10 also sporting a fully articulating display.

They also have better battery life than the Z fc. The Sony a lacks the fully articulating display and nifty vlogging tricks of the company's ZV-E10 , but it is more in line with the Z fc's feature set. The a's image quality is very good and its autofocus is best-in-class. While its 4K video quality is excellent, 30p footage is cropped and rolling shutter can be a problem. Footage capture at p is poor, and the camera lacks a headphone jack. The a has some of the best battery life in the business.

The Panasonic Lumix DC-G G in some regions is designed for vlogging, with its fully articulating display, multi-directional microphone, Log support and a video capture button that you can't miss. Unfortunately, the G didn't live up to its billing. Its 4K video is heavily cropped, autofocus is prone to hunting and still image quality just can't compete with its larger-sensor peers.

Loved this camera but the shutter sound is pretty terrible. Kind of a metal on metal grating noise. Not sure if this was intentional. If this is the same camera as the Z50 internally, which has a quieter shutter, it must have some changes.

I returned it and am hopeful Nikon will release an FX format version, the Zf, in the future. Been using mine for a few months and the images with the kit zoom blow me away every time I load them into NX studio or C1 Jared Polin said the same, and for once he's right. It's a lot of fun to use, is nice and light and portable, and is quick to use.

My Z6ii has not seen the light of day since I bought this. The Smallrig grip is needed for comfort though. Again the crippling hammer has hit hard No Flash light But a little bit better focus system With other words the handling is worse, like from the Nikon D!!. No Option to buy instead of the Nikon Z Really liked the retro style. It makes you feel like a dedicated photographer. Great choice for street photography w 50 mm prime. Nikon needs an all black version of this camera, I would have bought one had they done that.

Real nice :. Why isnt there even a tiny joystick? Even my xt30 has one! Id like to Move away from xtrans and this has the controls, but no joystick. They should make an xt3 type version, dual slots, big VF, same dials. Id be straight in. They will probably make a Zf full frame version at some point with those features, but probably not for another year or so at least. True the lack of a joystick is annoying, but the bulk of people who are going to be using the Zfc are probably going to be vlogging or using the touch screen most likely.

Beautiful camera. It doesn't fit my needs but I appreciate the design and the work that went into it. I think, photos are made by photographers, the next important thing is a good lens and the body is nowadays almost always good enough. I would think that "awesome camera" is very much in the eye of the beholder. What you believe to be awesome I may consider pedestrian and vice-versa.

If we consider the camera to be the tool to create the image, then we would be really considering "awesome image", but even then, your view of an "awesome image" may well not be mine and so on. It simply cannot be taken seriously, no matter the intent of the commenter. I wonder why Cheers. Would love to know what you're talking about. I was just thinking its one of the few Nikon cameras that's ever interested me, and might compete with the Fuji x system to become my second, smaller system, depending on lenses etc.

Awesome camera and nice review. But just one minor mistake I found. With, "USB 3. Again, that's minor, but I thought I'd bring it up! All the versions back to 3. Of all the new mounts - the Z mount seems to have the most weaknesses. There are no affordable zoom options in the critical range. And Nikon refuses to open it's mount to third party lens developers.

I like Nikon colors and body handling - but find it hard to pull the trigger on the Z mount. Where to start here Two primes that are less than 6 months old and one superzoom. Compare to Sony with lots of low cost third party options that are excellent. Really no contest. If you have no interest in studying the Z lens inventory further then please go with other system.

If the 1. Also three for APS-C: 23, 33 and 56mm lenses. Then there's also the fact that the Nikon Z mount, being the largest of them all, will fit all other lenses with appropriate adaptors. Please make a digital rangefinder system like the Leica M digital series.

And if you do, please provide two models; one with an EVF, the other with an optical viewfinder. You could even release a series of small, sharp, fast primes with this rangefinder system. Make it look like your S rangefinder series, and I will buy one or two as soon as you produce them! A digital nikon with rangefinder focusing? Why would anyone prefer hump on top of camera over EVF positioned in rangefinder style? Everybody is complaining about size but nobody seems to notice big unnecessary hump on top of the cameras Imagine Z5 without hump, for example.

I would be saving for that instead of a So people that shoot with their left eye can keep their right eye open and see what going on out side the frame. No, I don't think that's the reason. Left eye shooters also have problems with DSLR-like positioned viewfinder, right eye is behind the controls and nose is on display of camera. Just google left eye DSLR shooters and you will see that was always the problem. I think the real reason is that manufacturers are so conservative and traditional that they are afraid to change concept and look of cameras now that mirrorless is here and there is no need for hump.

Electric guitars for example are made for right-handed players and only in small quantities for left-hand guitarists. Is there a way to make one model of camera with 2 options of EVH position? Most certainly. I am aware that that's not going to happened but just thinking out loud: It seems that is hard enough for Sony to put front dial and just a bit larger grip on their a6xxx and a7C models:.

I was a left eye shooter for years never had a problem seeing out of my right eye with most cameras. I'd love to see this new full-frame 28mm on the full-frame bodies. Looks like it would be perfectly matched for that. Very strange even by Nikon standards for them to launch this crop-sensor camera with full-frame lenses and no true crop wide-angle like a 16 or a 19 in a DX-only format.

A note on the comparison pic; that FM2 has the execrable five-element Series E 28mm f2. It's all very interesting. There seems to be well beyond the camera world a fascination with styles, products, things in general from the past Perhaps this will inspire them to release a FF body. Sad that the reviewers do not understand basic design and engineering solutions.

Those doors and hatches are made plastic for safety reasons. They are designed weak points so that the expensive device is protected when a unintended force is applied to these parts. If the mount would be metal, it would twist and distort causing whole lens group get out of alignment, and that requires whole lens replacement.

Same is with the battery doors and such, when they are opened they are very vulnerable for accidental force that would bend and twist the hinges, screws and the thin covers so camera gets broken. How many would want to repair whole camera body instead just small plastic door? What a nonsense. Lenses are not some kind of expensive shear pins meant to break apart from the body on impact.

The only reason you see plastic mount is the fact it is sturdy enough for some lightweight kit lens, and it is cheaper to manufacture. You just have revealed that you have zero knowledge about lens engineering, or any engineering about different products with mechanical wearing where you specifically design a weak points where possible damage can be occurring so you can save the important parts of the product.

Btw, of course you can disagree, but then you would as well disagree with Roger Cicala who has as well talked about this. This is nothing new, cameras gets dropped and plastics don't just offer great capabilities withstand temperature changes or easier manufacturing, but exactly to have possibility design structural connections that will withstand forces as designed but will snap cleanly when excessive force is applied so the expensive parts can be protected.

And when majority of the readers even here doesn't know what a mount is in the lens and they believe that lens is "all metal" because its exterior shell is only metal tube and most of the inner parts are plastic Nothing can they say than "nonsense". I guess it's the same people who prefer metal lens hoods "because those are sturdy", whereas plastic ones will absorb energy from impact and flex instead of deform after impact. Well, Pentax DA L lens have a plastic mount that attaches to the camera and the exact same lens designated a DA lens has a metal mount.

The only difference is the DA L lens cost less. I am an amateur. There seems to be too much talk about the camera body. I think the mount is more important as lenses are the pricier component in photography. In theory, this camera fits well with my considerations: 1. Minimises my lens hoarding. Lolly shop. Reminds me of and my beloved FE2 where I began to love photography.

Nikon seems to actually love photography! So fewer usable images with my longer non-stabilised lenses incl. It is interesting how the Z mount has become the truly universal mount. The tables have turned. I imagine in the long term that will help Nikon sell some Z bodies. It is a dream world. I don't know if you used E to Z adapter or not. The compatibility is pretty inconsistent, the af, auto exposure, high fps support is all different among Samyang, Sigma, Zeiss and Sony.

In reality, most of people wouldn't be bothered. And it is certainly not on NiKon's plan to adapt Sony lenses. Nikon's APSC offering is poor, lack of plan, lack of ambition, lack of execution. If you ask Nikon what they want their zfc buyers to shoot with in pro zoom or prime lenses, they will probably tell you to buy an FTZ adapter, and some stoneage lenses like DX, 35DX 85mm DX Macro.

No wide-angle prime, sorry Nikon has forgotten about it 17years ago, not going to remember now. So fewer usable images with longer non-stabilised lenses incl. Also, for street photography good to have IBIS. Street and live event photography is the main reason why IBIS is no big deal to me. My subjects are moving.

IBIS isn't going to help me there. Street photography is not all about freezing all the motion. One of the most iconic street photographs can be used as example for you:. You wouldn't have captured that with a high shutter speed.

But IBIS would have been helping there even more because it allows the whole scene to stay sharp while allowing the moving subject to have its motion blur and even more. There are plenty of all kind scenarios where people ware wanted to be moving, a scenery is wanted to be moving but main subject not that is stationary relative to scene etc that IBIS helps a lot to achieve.

Even in sports and wildlife photography IBIS is helping a lot when subjects are moving or scenery is wanted to stay sharp and so on. Previously these has often required to use a tripod or some other means of support to get camera stationary. But IBIS frees the photographer from these limitations to be mobile.

I do agree that IBIS can help in many situations. To me it is not absolutely necessary, but I will take it if given to me. But it is funny that to prove that point, the one commenter cited an image from Henry Cartier Bresson, taken many decades ago using technology primitive to what we have today, and certainly a body without an IBIS. So that photo and its brilliance proves that one can certainly get a great image doing street photography without IBIS. How is this even debated anymore?

Some photogs need to come out form under the rock and see the sun. IBIS also helps to stabilize the sensor while composing, which gives the auto focus a better chance of hitting target. That states everything that "no-IBIS" is acknowledged and understood that it was not available back then, and it as well states that capturing a such photo as that in non-stabilized camera OIS or IBIS causes to have more unsharp photos and so on more takes to get the one that is wanted.

Sometimes the frame can be just one and success, sometimes you need to take multiple ones to get the wanted result. I just bought this as a back up to my Z7ii which will need repairs. Um, I adore this thing. Others around me do to. Even the people at BestBuy wanted to see it. Even random people at the bar I knew to charge the battery right after at adored it. I knew this was a special camera when the entire sales floor at my local camera shop gathered around me as I unboxed the first Z fc to be delivered to their store.

I haven't looked at a Pentax camera in years. Based on your comment I went to check some out. Wow, the K1 is a gorgeous camera, especially that silver edition K1 and the ergonomics looks amazing. I grew up in the 80's with a bombproof Ricoh point and shoot permanently glued to my hand. I saved up money from a summer job and splurged on one of the pricier point and shoot cameras at the camera shop.

I think that camera is probably still sitting somewhere at the bottom of a box at my dad's house. I must find it. For me, many cons are pros or not important. Some people have expressed concern with the lack of a DSLR style grip. I had my doubts too. No, it is not the camera to shoot one-handed if the other hand is holding a leash.

The camera was really designed to be used two-handed. If one knows how to use a camera properly two-handed, the lack of a DSLR style grip is no issue at all. Basically, you carry the camera with the left hand, while shooting or not shooting, and the right hand is only to stabilize it and to manipulate the controls when it is in front of your eye. Well - the problem is - with the exception of Fuji - most ILC over the past 20 years have had somewhat of a grip.

So - even if it was not common in the time this camera was styled after - it IS common in the recent past - and people are used to having that grip now. Maybe not a big deal - I mean all new cameras a pretty good. But it is the small things that make the differences now. Why does it seem everyone is so obsessed about this not being full frame?

But then - booom - you are hit with the aps-c crop. And - I agree - there probably is not a lot of difference in IQ. But- the focal lengths, and DOF are all A swing and a miss. Yeah… idk I think the FTZ is gonna look whack on this camera anyways. But a giant adapter will make it not worth it at all. Pro tip: Buy the Nikon Df then. A quick trip to eBay will quickly bring up a few examples.

Cheap as chips too. BestCamera - yeah, that is an option. Although - from my understanding - the Df was only OK from a controls perspective. It was basically a PSAM control layout made to look like a 30 year old camera body. Sure - the sensor was great.

But - buy the D4 and get the same sensor, plus super AF for when you want that. I know you can calculate it by hand using the sensor size and magnification, but it's just nice to have it right there in the table for comparison purposes.

This could have been interesting - IF - it was a FF sensor and had the old Nikon s-mount for rangefinder lenses. Just read the Z50 review, factor in the few technical differences, sprinkle the gorgeous colors the stunning look, and you're ready to go.

It seems that the Z50 could run the new AF software if the Zfc but has decided not to make it available to the Z But it does make sense since this was a cheap way to create a differentiating factor between the 2 cameras.

Not sure how a re-housed z50 gets a score this high. There are only two meaningful updates - usb charging and the articulating screen both of which are improvements. But - everything else is a gimmick - AND - the grip is worse. AND - why not compare the zfc with the G9 - which is also in the same price range? Have you looked at the studio scene? Having the G9 in the studio scene would only serve to embarrass it Especially considering that the m43 cameras are all being shown with a lens that is almost 3 times more expensive.

Some people actually like the lack of a grip. I thought I'd hate it, but it's grown on me. I've paired my Z fc with a loose hand strap and because there's no grip bump, it's quite easy to take advantage of the fully articulating screen by holding the camera backwards. I've adjusted my hand holds so that I can easily shoot one handed either forward or backwards selfie mode. I don't know if they omitted the grip for this reason, but it sure works out nicely. The dials are also extremely useful when you're shooting in selfie mode because you can't easily access controls on the back panel then.

I got this to be my fun camera. I'm not going to be mounting any serious heat on the front. The Z fc has met my expectations and then some. Honest curiosity. Do you revisit a review or news article to repeat the same negative comments over and over? That must be tiring. If it got tiring, people empirically wouldn't do it. It turns out that people enjoy arguing online for entertainment, about everything from sports to politics to camera brands.

Rajeshb - no, I am actually hoping some marketing people from Nikon are reading here. If they are not - they should be. It isn't a controlled survey - but still a valuable resource - you get actual photographers feedback here on this site. I think someone else above said it perfectly - this is like a Fuji but without features or lenses. My hope is that Nikon will see the lack of DX lens support as well as the lack of a DX body that can shoot video with ultra high quality.

I know - they want everyone to migrate to FX - that is the path. But - then just drop DX - it is a dead end system for Nikon. Comments on DP Review forums are never going to be taken very seriously by any company that actually has the ability to do market research. This is the exact opposite of a controlled survey. The people providing feedback here are not a representative sample of the target market.

Maybe that is why the camera market is sinking like the titanic. At the very least, companies can mine social media for issues to take to focus groups and other avenues for prioritization. That said, I do not know if these Japanese firms would engage with English-language site comments. From articles over the year it sounds like the American and European subsidiaries are talked to and not with.

Brownie, echoing what BrentSchumer said, there is some utility in mining these forums for opinion, but it's more noise than signal. By the time you are one of the major camera manufacturers, there are far more accurate and efficient ways to collect marketing insights than to wade through pages and pages of dreck. But information is useful, right? Well whose opinion would you be collecting here? DP Review will give you a strong idea what drives the saturated market of opinionated middle aged men who have free time and already own plenty of cameras.

I received several confirmations that the rumored Nikon retro-inspired APS-C mirrorless Z camera is real and will be announced soon. Here is a recap of the latest rumors:. Update — more leaked pictures available here :.

Nikon seems to actually love photography! So fewer usable images with my longer non-stabilised lenses incl. It is interesting how the Z mount has become the truly universal mount. The tables have turned. I imagine in the long term that will help Nikon sell some Z bodies. It is a dream world. I don't know if you used E to Z adapter or not. The compatibility is pretty inconsistent, the af, auto exposure, high fps support is all different among Samyang, Sigma, Zeiss and Sony.

In reality, most of people wouldn't be bothered. And it is certainly not on NiKon's plan to adapt Sony lenses. Nikon's APSC offering is poor, lack of plan, lack of ambition, lack of execution. If you ask Nikon what they want their zfc buyers to shoot with in pro zoom or prime lenses, they will probably tell you to buy an FTZ adapter, and some stoneage lenses like DX, 35DX 85mm DX Macro.

No wide-angle prime, sorry Nikon has forgotten about it 17years ago, not going to remember now. So fewer usable images with longer non-stabilised lenses incl. Also, for street photography good to have IBIS. Street and live event photography is the main reason why IBIS is no big deal to me.

My subjects are moving. IBIS isn't going to help me there. Street photography is not all about freezing all the motion. One of the most iconic street photographs can be used as example for you:. You wouldn't have captured that with a high shutter speed. But IBIS would have been helping there even more because it allows the whole scene to stay sharp while allowing the moving subject to have its motion blur and even more.

There are plenty of all kind scenarios where people ware wanted to be moving, a scenery is wanted to be moving but main subject not that is stationary relative to scene etc that IBIS helps a lot to achieve. Even in sports and wildlife photography IBIS is helping a lot when subjects are moving or scenery is wanted to stay sharp and so on. Previously these has often required to use a tripod or some other means of support to get camera stationary. But IBIS frees the photographer from these limitations to be mobile.

I do agree that IBIS can help in many situations. To me it is not absolutely necessary, but I will take it if given to me. But it is funny that to prove that point, the one commenter cited an image from Henry Cartier Bresson, taken many decades ago using technology primitive to what we have today, and certainly a body without an IBIS. So that photo and its brilliance proves that one can certainly get a great image doing street photography without IBIS. How is this even debated anymore?

Some photogs need to come out form under the rock and see the sun. IBIS also helps to stabilize the sensor while composing, which gives the auto focus a better chance of hitting target. That states everything that "no-IBIS" is acknowledged and understood that it was not available back then, and it as well states that capturing a such photo as that in non-stabilized camera OIS or IBIS causes to have more unsharp photos and so on more takes to get the one that is wanted.

Sometimes the frame can be just one and success, sometimes you need to take multiple ones to get the wanted result. I just bought this as a back up to my Z7ii which will need repairs. Um, I adore this thing. Others around me do to. Even the people at BestBuy wanted to see it.

Even random people at the bar I knew to charge the battery right after at adored it. I knew this was a special camera when the entire sales floor at my local camera shop gathered around me as I unboxed the first Z fc to be delivered to their store.

I haven't looked at a Pentax camera in years. Based on your comment I went to check some out. Wow, the K1 is a gorgeous camera, especially that silver edition K1 and the ergonomics looks amazing. I grew up in the 80's with a bombproof Ricoh point and shoot permanently glued to my hand. I saved up money from a summer job and splurged on one of the pricier point and shoot cameras at the camera shop.

I think that camera is probably still sitting somewhere at the bottom of a box at my dad's house. I must find it. For me, many cons are pros or not important. Some people have expressed concern with the lack of a DSLR style grip. I had my doubts too. No, it is not the camera to shoot one-handed if the other hand is holding a leash. The camera was really designed to be used two-handed. If one knows how to use a camera properly two-handed, the lack of a DSLR style grip is no issue at all.

Basically, you carry the camera with the left hand, while shooting or not shooting, and the right hand is only to stabilize it and to manipulate the controls when it is in front of your eye. Well - the problem is - with the exception of Fuji - most ILC over the past 20 years have had somewhat of a grip. So - even if it was not common in the time this camera was styled after - it IS common in the recent past - and people are used to having that grip now.

Maybe not a big deal - I mean all new cameras a pretty good. But it is the small things that make the differences now. Why does it seem everyone is so obsessed about this not being full frame? But then - booom - you are hit with the aps-c crop. And - I agree - there probably is not a lot of difference in IQ. But- the focal lengths, and DOF are all A swing and a miss.

Yeah… idk I think the FTZ is gonna look whack on this camera anyways. But a giant adapter will make it not worth it at all. Pro tip: Buy the Nikon Df then. A quick trip to eBay will quickly bring up a few examples. Cheap as chips too. BestCamera - yeah, that is an option. Although - from my understanding - the Df was only OK from a controls perspective.

It was basically a PSAM control layout made to look like a 30 year old camera body. Sure - the sensor was great. But - buy the D4 and get the same sensor, plus super AF for when you want that. I know you can calculate it by hand using the sensor size and magnification, but it's just nice to have it right there in the table for comparison purposes. This could have been interesting - IF - it was a FF sensor and had the old Nikon s-mount for rangefinder lenses.

Just read the Z50 review, factor in the few technical differences, sprinkle the gorgeous colors the stunning look, and you're ready to go. It seems that the Z50 could run the new AF software if the Zfc but has decided not to make it available to the Z But it does make sense since this was a cheap way to create a differentiating factor between the 2 cameras. Not sure how a re-housed z50 gets a score this high. There are only two meaningful updates - usb charging and the articulating screen both of which are improvements.

But - everything else is a gimmick - AND - the grip is worse. AND - why not compare the zfc with the G9 - which is also in the same price range? Have you looked at the studio scene? Having the G9 in the studio scene would only serve to embarrass it Especially considering that the m43 cameras are all being shown with a lens that is almost 3 times more expensive.

Some people actually like the lack of a grip. I thought I'd hate it, but it's grown on me. I've paired my Z fc with a loose hand strap and because there's no grip bump, it's quite easy to take advantage of the fully articulating screen by holding the camera backwards.

I've adjusted my hand holds so that I can easily shoot one handed either forward or backwards selfie mode. I don't know if they omitted the grip for this reason, but it sure works out nicely. The dials are also extremely useful when you're shooting in selfie mode because you can't easily access controls on the back panel then.

I got this to be my fun camera. I'm not going to be mounting any serious heat on the front. The Z fc has met my expectations and then some. Honest curiosity. Do you revisit a review or news article to repeat the same negative comments over and over? That must be tiring. If it got tiring, people empirically wouldn't do it.

It turns out that people enjoy arguing online for entertainment, about everything from sports to politics to camera brands. Rajeshb - no, I am actually hoping some marketing people from Nikon are reading here. If they are not - they should be. It isn't a controlled survey - but still a valuable resource - you get actual photographers feedback here on this site.

I think someone else above said it perfectly - this is like a Fuji but without features or lenses. My hope is that Nikon will see the lack of DX lens support as well as the lack of a DX body that can shoot video with ultra high quality.

I know - they want everyone to migrate to FX - that is the path. But - then just drop DX - it is a dead end system for Nikon. Comments on DP Review forums are never going to be taken very seriously by any company that actually has the ability to do market research.

This is the exact opposite of a controlled survey. The people providing feedback here are not a representative sample of the target market. Maybe that is why the camera market is sinking like the titanic. At the very least, companies can mine social media for issues to take to focus groups and other avenues for prioritization. That said, I do not know if these Japanese firms would engage with English-language site comments. From articles over the year it sounds like the American and European subsidiaries are talked to and not with.

Brownie, echoing what BrentSchumer said, there is some utility in mining these forums for opinion, but it's more noise than signal. By the time you are one of the major camera manufacturers, there are far more accurate and efficient ways to collect marketing insights than to wade through pages and pages of dreck.

But information is useful, right? Well whose opinion would you be collecting here? DP Review will give you a strong idea what drives the saturated market of opinionated middle aged men who have free time and already own plenty of cameras. That's not a recipe for success. Women buy cameras too. Zoomers and young millennials love throwback gear. Based on the strong reception of the Z fcs, Nikon's done their homework. Has Nikon changed their jpg recipe?

I don't understand how a photographer does not understand the importance of style and aesthetics in a product. We photographers should understand above all the importance of appearance in everything, including a product, including a camera.

If anything we should be more interested in nice looking products, not less. But why should this matter. The camera will appeal to some and not to others. I wish Nikon the best with this effort. Psst jaberg, the people who are so insecure about the size of their lens that they have to put down people who shoot with cameras they consider inferior It's easy hitting.

But do you just buy an arbitrary couch just because you want to sit? Do you just buy a beige Corolla, because you only need a car? When you make a coffee table, you just chainsaw through a piece of lumber, because, hey, the surface is flat now? Sure, usability is an important factor, but what is wrong when the designers actually spend 5 more minutes and make something look good?

You also comb your hair before you go out, don't you? I'm sure there's some of that going on ScottTomlinson. There always is. High end gear always doubles as a fashion accessory for some people or perhaps that's the primary purpose.

The irony for me here is that I got a Z fc so I wouldn't be seen as much. Being that we're still in a pandemic, I wanted something that wouldn't call out as much attention in public as a d with a large lens and a speed light. That this could be mistaken by some people as either a film camera or a hipster camera was precisely the draw for me.

I figure more people will leave me alone if they think I'm either an old school film throwback or a hipster who just wants to be seen with a nice looking camera. In my mind a camera is a tool first, everything else a far second. I'm not saying it's wrong or casting judgment on those who have the opposite priorities. To each's own. That being said, I and brand loyal to one power tool manufacturer and a lot of that boils down to consistency and look.

Who wants a Ryobi drill when all the rest of your power tools are DeWalt? The interesting thing is that with such retro looking cameras, the people are much more relaxed than when you point a big white at them. Especially older people bring back memories from their father's camera etc, and in general people feel less intimidated. I myself have a silver Fuji cameras for the record, which is a joy to use, but also when you see it, you just want to pick it up and go out shooting with it.

But this camera looks ugly if you depart from the few retro-styled lenses to slap a big black or white Z lens on it. It's not like there are "FC" versions of Nikon's big white lenses. The FujiFilm cameras are why. If you want APSC that is what to buy these days. Everyone else has either given up or releases warmed over parts-bin bodies. It's nice to see Nikon putting in some effort. Yeah, it means someone must have done something right to inspire this much love, hate, and fanfare for a crop sensor camera.

APSC came a long way had has some advantages. I grab my Leica CL in a small bag since it is light and gives stellar performance for my purposes. For night shoots I carry a little table top tripod. These comments go back to over two months ago, consolidated from other articles. They didn't just appear right after the review was published.

Frosting on the cake, half of the messages are on the look and the available colors when we were expecting IBIS. The TNT was added by forbidding at least temporarily, but with no clear limit on what this means the Z50 owners to buy the 28mm new lens. It's a polarizing product: -People who are looking for film-era nostalgia or a retro-feeling camera are in love. I did try the DF but it never quite had that feel and long lost experience of using film cameras.

The whole process of loading and shooting with film really makes you think about the creating an image from start to finish. Thats when I love using the knobs and dials, if I remember my close up glasses ha ha Reading this excellent review and the conclusions though it has made me seriously thing about getting the Z50 to go with my Z7.

The images in this review really impresses. These are just my thoughts from someone still shooting film but fully embracing the wonders of the Z range and must congratulate Nikon on the way they have moved forward. I wanted to like the Df but it felt like a cheap D6x0 with a fancy retro top cover.

Too bad it didn't use the higher-specced D8x0 mechanics. You can't even change the aperture live while the DOF button is pressed. Nikon should build their retro styled bodies based on their most capable models, not on the cheapest ones.

I agree with Giovanni: the Df should have used their D8xoo internals and they would have had a winner. Also agree that they need to use their premium specs on their retro bodies, esp in a FF one if they produce that. I agree with someone who noted that Nikon was smart to start with the lower priced retro model, test the waters, and if a success, then go forward with a higher priced FF model.

But again, if Nikon does a FF model, they should aim high and put in premium specs. Retro FF users are willing to pay a bit more to get premium specs. When I shoot this as a normal forward facing camera, I use the modern shutter speed and aperture dials on the front and back. No ibis? It should be standard in all decent cameras coming out these days. Seems nikon is borrowing Canon's Cripple Hammer. When it was announced, I was deeply disappointed by the lack of in-body stabilisation.

Such a pity. Even though I'm committed to full frame, I would have considered buying it as a smaller, lighter walkabout alternative to my Z Keep my feet from Dancing! In other words, make a full frame X-T3 or FMnd. That said, releasing a crop sensor version first was the right move. I would never have bought a full sized sensor version. The controls would be about the same between Fuji and Nikon cameras. The alternative would be to move to Fuji GFX line, but less lenses to choose from.

But we seem to see more and more ASPC cameras these days X-Trans destroys micro contrast as evidenced in the dpreview sensor test section. It always looks cheaper without the grit that a real full frame lens and sensor combo can offer. FF is also much closer to medium format look while offering smaller and better lenses than faux MF.

I think it's time fore me to sell. The thrill is gone. No offense taken. Let's call it clarity then? It is what's gone when haze creeps in in cheap or old lenses when used wide open. That's what I call micro contrast, or the lack thereof. I wonder how optical engineers call it. I agree with you on the last part of your post. I was always puzzled how "cheap" the image quality looks in close-up even when using a prime lens on x-trans.

Whoever wants an apsc camera will be crazy to get this unless they shot Nikon full frame or are first hipster and after photographer. This camera will will never be supported by a decent lens lineup. It is nice to see and hopefully to handle, period. Funny, the only people now using that term "hipster" are those hopelessly trying to come off as "hip. This camera has great style and by all accounts is a very capable camera too. What's wrong with that? As to the lens lineup, being a Z mount, it accepts the full range of Nikon Z lenses for both APS-C and FF, and will even accept adapters for all sorts of other lenses out there.

OK, it's startin to grow on me. But there's still a few things about this cam that's killin it for me. No Grip! Gotta have one. With any kind of larger lens on it they all look HUGE on this punky body , it's probably gonna get dropped. A body this small can easily slip out of your hands with no grip. Wishin it was 'full frame'.

I shoot a lot in less than perfect light ISO , and I've got so used to the low noise capabilities of Nikon's full framer's DD I won't be happy with the noise I see comin out of this cam at those ISOs. Cropped sensors just CANT hold a candle to full frame in this department. I've got so used to shootin all day on 1 battery images , that I'm sure I'm gonna HATE swapping out batteries half way thru the day.

That's when I'm probably gonna miss somethin I didn't want to. Get with the program. The lack of a grip actually becomes an asset when you're holding it backwards as you would if you use the flip-out screen to shoot a selfie. The lack of a grip opens up alternate ways to hold the camera and I'm taking full advantage of that now that I realize it.

It has USB-C charging. The battery won't last all day, but you can easily plug it into a powerbank or a car adapter to refresh the charge if you don't want to carry extra batteries. Also, the CIPA battery ratings for all mirrorless cameras are vastly understated. Their testing methodology does not apply to mirrorless; it is made for DSLRs. I have found that any mirrorless camera I have owned or tried out gets far more battery life than the CIPA ratings would suggest. Grips are really the equivalent of a double-handled spouted toddlers cup……use the neck strap that came with the camera, problem solved…..

But seriously, the grip serves several functions at least on my X-H1: it has two batteries in it, so can shoot a lot longer. It also allows for the full video clip versus 15 mins with just the body cells; and sports the headphone jack that, hopefully, they'll put in the body on the X-H2. Lastly, it has duplicate controls for shooting in vertical orientation.

During a longer studio style shoot I find the ergos quite enjoyable, if a little more weighty. After being spoiled by my Olympus bodies, I eventually got the X-H1 versus the T2 because it was stabilized. IBIS extends your shooting envelope and lets a guy get many more keepers that aren't blurred out by camera and lens shake. The problem is And you 'please no grip' prima-donnas who are pointing the camera backwards IBIS would have definitely resulted in 'more keepers'.

Just LOVE people who buy a camera because it has no grip cause a grip kills its sexyness and order a grip the next day. Gary, being creative enough to use a grip-less camera in novel ways and pointing a camera at yourself makes you a narcissist? So their target market are hipsters. Just a little silly if you ask me. It's a functional thing for a specific genre of photography lovers not just your beloved "hipsters".

This does have all the trademarks of a troll post. Using the overused term of "hipsters. I actually like this camera a whole lot. But if one goes for this camera for the looks, he has very limited "same cool style" lenses to pair with it, till Nikon releases more "classic looking" lenses. And it is interesting to see what will they do - will they choose to go for classic only APSC bodies and lenses and modern FF?

Would they add the possibility to have every lens in modern or classic housing? Great looking camera. Now Nikon need to produce more compact pancake type lenses to compliment it. These could then be used for a full frame version of the Zfc too. It's funny, I have the XT and like it a lot. So when I see this thing, everything makes me want to buy it. Finally the digital FM2n. That's a good sign. I have on a shelf my original FM from seventies perfectly working in silver finish, I think the DF was a partial mistake and this ZFc finally has the same feeling of her Grandma.

Nice looking camera. Lens looks oversized for the body - but that's inherent with the Nikon Z bodies and lens Would a pancake like Pentax's incredible 40mm look better. But the two kits to me look great on the body. Take a look at how it performs in both JPEG and Raw modes under daylight and tungsten-balanced lighting. We recently got our hands on a production Nikon Z fc and we wasted no time taking it out and about in the Seattle area.

As expected, the results are pretty good - see for yourself in our sample gallery.

For now the Z mount is kind of the universal mount. I'm passing on this one for two reasons: 1. Why design it like it has an optical viewfinder when it doesn't? I would have preferred a full frame sensor. Suggestions for Nikon not that they really care or even bother to read this : Please make a digital rangefinder system like the Leica M digital series.
