Nikon Z FC is a retro-style mirrorless camera that looks a lot like Nikon’s film-era cameras. Both Fujifilm and Olympus have been making similar designed mirrorless bodies and have found a lot of takers as it gives a better feeling and joy when taking photos for many. It’s good to see Nikon bringing a similar-style camera for the masses.
Nikon Z FC is a DX-format camera, ie it has an APS-C sensor instead of a Full Frame sensor we saw on many other Z Series line-ups. It will be available to purchase in 6 different color combinations – Amber Brown, White, Black, Natural Gray, Sand Beige, Coral Pink, and Mint Green. Some colors won’t be that widely available.
It features a 20.9MP DX CMOS sensor with 4K @ 30fps recording supported. Nikon has powered this camera with an EXPEED 6 engine and uses an EN-EL25 battery that has a 300 shots CIPA rating. It has Mechanical controls for shutter speed, ISO and exposure compensation. Nikon uses a vari-angle flip-out screen on this model which we are seeing for the first time in a Nikon Z Series camera.
Nikon Z FC comes with a 1.0-cm/0.39-in 2360k-dot (XGA) OLED electronic viewfinder and supports Hybrid phase-detection/contrast AF. It has 209 single-point AF points and Nikon’s intelligent Eye-Detection AF for video and stills for easy and better AF performance. Check out the full specs below.
