(Pocket-lint) – The Nikon Z FC is a model new digital digital camera for 2021 – though you won’t suppose so from it, given its retro design.
However that is as a result of the Z FC relies upon Nikon’s FM2 SLR digital camera, first launched in 1982, adopting that heritage design for the fashionable age – in mirrorless type.
It is not the primary time Nikon has gone down this route. Again in 2014 the corporate launched the Df – a full-frame (FX) DSLR digital camera primarily based on the basic Nineteen Sixties F sequence of movie SLR cameras.
So what is the Z FC all about? Constructed upon Nikon’s crop-factor sensor (known as DX), it is a part of the Z sequence household, which was developed to diversify the camera-maker’s mirrorless line-up.
That features cameras such because the Z50, which the Z FC largely displays by way of core specification, together with its 20.9-megapixel decision sensor. Elsewhere there is a built-in OLED viewfinder, vari-angle LCD touchscreen, 209-point autofocus system, and even the flexibility to shoot 4K video (at 30fps).
Nevertheless it’s the design and dials format that units the retro-looking FC aside, in fact, with that silver-topped end actually making this digital camera stand out. Apparently, Nikon can be promoting six color physique variants via its personal web site.
The Nikon Z FC will likely be obtainable from 28 July 2021, priced £899/$959.95/€1,049 body-only.
