When Nikon announced their new Z-series of mirrorless cameras, it was the company’s attempt at trying their hand at mirrorless cameras again. So far, based on the reviews, the company seems to have gotten it right. However, these new cameras aren’t exactly what we would consider to be cheap, but the good news is that Nikon has something a bit more affordable for you.
Following the rumors that Nikon could have a new cheaper mirrorless camera in the works, the company has since officially confirmed it by announcing the Nikon Z50. As expected, this will be part of Nikon’s Z-series of mirrorless cameras and instead of a full-frame mirrorless camera, it will use an APS-C sensor, which we reckon is probably more than sufficient for most photographers, unless you’re a professional or have a need to go full-frame.
In terms of specs, we’re looking at at 20.9MP CMOS sensor with a flip down 3.2-inch display on its back. It can also go up to ISO 51,200 and there will also be a 209-point Hybrid AF System, with shooting speeds of up to 11 fps. 4K video will aos be supported along with 120 fps slow-motion video capture.
As for its price, the Nikon Z50 will be priced at $999.95 which includes a 16-50mm f/3.5-6.3 VR lens, making it a pretty affordable alternative to the company’s higher-end Z-series cameras.
