Product Information

The full picture.

Harness the entire view of expansive full frame lenses, and capture over 50% more image area than crop-sensor cameras. Z 5’s 24.3 MP full frame CMOS sensor produces intensively detailed images, lifelike 4K UHD video, ultra shallow depth-of-field and particularly clean low-light shots.


Super powered.

Z 5 is powered by Nikon’s fast, comprehensive EXPEED 6 image processing system. It’s the secret behind the camera’s sensational photo and video quality, autofocus performance, low-light capabilities, distortion control, image clarity, color reproduction and more.


The stability you crave.

Sharpness starts with stability, and Z 5 has one of the best in-camera image stabilization systems available. NIKKOR Z lenses activate 5-axis VR image stabilization—up to five stops* of stabilization in up to five directions: yaw, pitch, roll, X and Y. Compatible F-Mount NIKKOR lenses**—even those without built-in VR—activate 3-axis VR image stabilization. Great for stills, even better for video.


In the blink of an iris.

Freeze time with shutter speeds as fast as 1/8000 of a second—fast enough to capture moments invisible to the naked eye. When shooting with wide aperture settings for shallow depth-of-field and blurred backgrounds, that speed can also be used to control your shot’s brightness.


Right. In any light.

Creativity doesn’t wait for perfect lighting, so neither does Z 5. Its ISO sensitivity goes all the way up to ISO 51,200 (expandable to ISO 102,400) with superb sharpness, detail and clarity. Keep shooting into the night, and bring a new mood to your style with the drama of low light.


Fully automatic. Totally manual.

Sometimes you need to just point and shoot. Other times you want to fine tune every little detail. Z 5 is up for either challenge, going from fully automatic to totally manual with the turn of a dial.


Go quiet.

In can’t miss moments—like weddings, speeches or performances—turn on Silent Mode and capture photo after photo without drawing any attention. This is also great for photographing pets and wildlife.


The eyes say it all.

Great portraits put focus on the eyes. Z 5’s powerful Eye-Detection Autofocus quickly finds your subject’s eyes—humans, cats and dogs alike—and puts them in sharp focus. It even follows them as they move behind objects in the frame.


Focus anywhere.

Z 5’s sensor is practically covered in focus points—273 of them, to be precise. That means wherever your subject is within the frame, there’s almost certainly a focus point locked on them.


Flash of genius.

Z 5 is compatible with Nikon’s Creative Lighting System. Fill in shadows, make subjects stand out, enhance natural light and add artistry with an optional external Nikon Speedlight flash.


Two for the road.

Z 5 includes dual UHS-II SD card slots. Use them together for overflow storage, automatic back up or separating file types like RAW and JPEG or stills and videos.


You see it.
You get it.

See your shot clearly through Z 5’s outstanding electronic viewfinder. It activates when you put your eye to it, offering a high-resolution glare-free view of how your shot will actually look—exposure, ISO, white balance and Picture Controls are all visible in realtime.


Works with Z-Mount lenses.

Built around Nikon’s revolutionary Z mount, Z 5 is compatible with every cutting-edge NIKKOR Z lens, from the highly acclaimed NIKKOR Z 50mm f/1.8 S walkaround prime lens to the telephoto powerhouse NIKKOR Z 70-200mm f/2.8 VR S.


Works with F-Mount lenses.

Attach the optional Mount Adapter FTZ and extend full compatibility to over 90* F-Mount NIKKOR lenses: full frame fisheye lenses, macro lenses, fast primes, super telephoto zooms and everything in between.

*Approximately 360 classic F-Mount NIKKOR lenses can be used with varying compatibility.


Tweak. Shoot. Create.

Add another element of uniqueness and artistry to your photos and videos with 20 Creative Picture Controls, all visible in real time while you shoot, either through the viewfinder or on the tilting touchscreen display.


Multiply your vision.

Combine multiple photos into one radical creation. This can be done in real time by composing and combining consecutive shots, or it can be done later by previewing and combining shots you already took.


Shift your focus.

Focus Shift Shooting Mode automatically takes a series of images (up to 300) while advancing the focus position in each shot. These images can then be stacked* into a single image with surreal depth of field—great for shooting jewelry, products, landscapes and still subjects.

*Requires third-party image-stacking software sold separately.


Easy pairing.
Easy sharing.

Connect to Z 5 from the SnapBridge app once, and your phone and camera are bonded for life. You can transfer photos manually, or set the app to automatically import every shot you take.
