New From Nikon! The Nikon Z5 and More!

  By Ryley Smith

 

Nikon has released their newest full-frame, mirrorless camera! The innovative, feature-rich Nikon Z5! Designed for emerging photographers, the Z5 offers a lot of power and capabilities at an attractive price, empowering the next generation to begin their journey with the confidence to learn and grow as creators!

Working off the sophisticated features of the Z7 and the Z6, the Z5 offers a new entry point to Nikon’s full-frame mirrorless lineup. Featuring a powerful FX-format 24.3-megapixel CMOS sensor and an ISO range up to 51,200, the Z5 can capture intensely detailed images from beautiful portraits to stunning nighttime landscapes, and everything in between. 

Speed is also a huge factor in the Nikon Z5. Engineered with the EXPEED 6, Nikon’s fastest image processor to date, it allows for a boost in processing power and energy efficiency while rendering subtle textures and small details with amazing results. It also has a shutter speed of up to 1/8000 to help you capture fast-action sports and wildlife. This higher maximum shutter speed also helps to tame even the brightest mid-day light to unleash the potential of fast-aperture Nikkor glass. It can also capture full-resolution bursts at 4.5 fps with full AF/AE.

The Nikon Z5 boasts 273 on-sensor AF points, to quickly and accurately track subjects throughout the frame, while Eye-Detection AF capabilities help precisely capture the eyes of humans and animals. In conjunction with the camera’s silent photography mode and In-Body 5-Axis VR stabilization, you can capture any special or sensitive moment.

Beyond stills, the Z5 makes it easy to create your video creations in both 4K UHD/30p or 1080/60p (full-frame). When recording video, the PDAF system is rapid to react, allowing you to quickly lock critical focus on subjects, and is fully customizable to fit any production style. Additionally, the in-camera VR image stabilization and electronic VR reliably eliminate the shake when shooting video, plus there is the added benefit of focus peaking and the ability to capture stills while recording.

Built rugged and engineered for versatility, the Nikon Z5 is compact and comfortable in-hand while being durable with a weather-sealed exterior for worry-free use. It also has a powerful, high-resolution 3.2-inch LCD monitor, dual UHS-II card slots for overflow, backup or separating RAW and JPEG photos, Wifi and Bluetooth and much more!

To keep the excitement rolling, Nikon also announced the Nikkor Z 24-50mm f/4-6.3 alongside two new Z Teleconverters, the Z Teleconverter TC-1.4X and Z Teleconverter TC-2.0X

The Nikkor Z 24-50mm f/4-6.3 is the latest addition to the rapidly expanding lineup of Nikkor Z lenses and is the smallest FX-format Z lens yet. Designed to take advantage of the wide Z mount, this lens delivers sharpness across the entire frame and a versatile zoom range for everyday use. Only three inches long when retracted, it is a great compact option for lightweight travel and street photography.

The teleconverters bring added versatility with 1.4x and 2.0x magnification to select Nikkor lenses. These lightweight teleconverters are great tools for those photographing sports, wildlife and aviation, reducing the need to crop images and allowing for tighter compositions with maximum resolution.
