Nikon Releases Its First APS-C Mirrorless Camera

Akihabara News (Tokyo) — Following its release of two full-frame mirrorless cameras last year, the Z7 and the Z6, Nikon has now released its first APS-C model, the Z50, which should bring the mirrorless camera experience to consumers at a much lower price point.

Along with the release of the Z50, Nikon has also released two customized lenses for the new camera, the Nikkor Z DX 16-50mm f/3.5-6.3 VR standard zoom lens and the Nikkor Z DX 50-250mm f/4.5-6.3 VR telephoto zoom lens.

The Z50 is a compact and lightweight, high-performance mirrorless camera, meant to be easily carried. Indeed, it weighs just 397 grams, compared to 675 grams for the Z6 full-frame camera.

This camera will be Nikon’s answer to rivals in its same class such as the Sony A6400, Fujifilm X-T30, and the Canon EOS M6 Mark II.

Among its key features are Eye-AF autofocus, 4K UHD recording, an LCD touchscreen that flips downward, and connectivity to with various smart devices.

It does lack in-body image stabilization, though some stabilization is provided by the two new lenses.

The camera’s Z mount supports both the Nikkor Z DX and Nikkor Z FX formats, so all Nikkor Z lenses, as well as S-line lenses, can be used with the Z50.

Low light performance is said to be quite good for an APS-C camera.
