Offering superb image quality, the all-new Nikon Z50 captures perfectly focused photos and 4K movies that are rich in detail, depth, and colour. Equipped with a large 20.9 MP DX-format sensor, the Z 50 brings the optical advantages of Nikon mirrorless into a strong, compact DX body.
Features inherited from the acclaimed Nikon Z 7 and Z 6 cameras include the wide Nikon Z Mount and the fast, wide Hybrid-AF (autofocus) system. The Z 50 also features a sharp electronic viewfinder, a tilting touchscreen, and the deep grip that makes Nikon mirrorless cameras so comfortable to hold. Intelligent Eye-Detection AF makes the Z 50 great for shooting portraits, and up to 11 fps continuous shooting (with AF/AE) takes care of the action. The Z 50 is fully compatible with Nikon’s FTZ Mount Adapter, which allows F-mount NIKKOR DSLR lenses to be used together with the camera.
