This camera comes as the perfect option for those who want to take the next step with their photography without throwing themselves towards a Pro-Mirrorless or DSLR camera body. The Nikon Z5 is equipped with a sizeable 24.3MP Full-Frame CMOS FX imaging sensor. This beautiful sensor allows you to capture stunning images and even record 4K video footage. Not only this, but the sensor is also housed in a lightweight, weather-sealed and compact body, perfect for getting out there and being ready to freeze the action in front of you.
Accurate & Precise AF
The Nikon Z5 provides pin-sharp focus thanks to its 273-point hybrid autofocus system. This system is fast, precise and smooth. You’ll be able to lock onto a subject and stay in focus no matter where they are in your frame. This is thanks to the advanced and effective eye-detect and animal-detect. This technology will lock on and continuously track your subject, making sure they stay in focus, even if they’re moving.
An impressive AF system would be nothing without in-built image stabilisation. The Nikon Z5 features a powerful in-camera 5-axis VR image stabilisation that will keep your images and video footage clear, smooth and shake-free. This system will even allow you to comfortably shoot with shutter speeds up to five-stop slower! There is incredible scope in this camera for those branching out into the full-frame world of photography.
Crystal Clear EVF
Some may be wary of EVF (electronic viewfinder) over OVFs (optical viewfinder). However, when it comes to the Nikon Z5, you can rest assured that what you see in the EVF is exactly what you see with your naked eye. This high-definition and crystal clear 3690k-dot EVF will present a stunning image, all whilst providing real-time key settings such as exposure and ISO changes.
The Nikon Z5 features a newly designed battery, the EN-EL 15 C that offers much longer shooting periods without the need to charge or replace batteries. Equally, the Nikon Z5 also features a USB-C port that can be used to both charges your camera or power your camera when you want to shoot for longer sessions e.g. time-lapse video capture.
Connectivity & Memory
This camera features both WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity, which gives you countless options for sharing your creativity with peers or for sending your work directly to your computer or smart device. Memory-wise, the Nikon Z5 has been equipped with two USH-II SD card slots which are more than capable of dealing with the larger full-frame images that you will capture.
