Quick Overview:

20.9 Megapixel DX-Format CMOS Image Sensor

Based on the sensor design from high end DSLRs, this remarkable new Z series camera incorporates the same focal-plane phase-detection AF sensor found in full-frame Z series cameras; capturing staggering detail, even in challenging light.


Built-in Wi-Fi® and Bluetooth

Z 50 has built-in Wi-Fi® and Bluetooth and works seamlessly with a compatible smart device using Nikon’s SnapBridge app. Instantly transfer photos and videos right to your smart device, or use it for remote shooting—see what the camera sees, adjust settings and control the shutter or start/stop video recording.


209-Point Hybrid Autofocus

209 focus points and focal-plane phase-detection pixels are incorporated right into the image sensor for extraordinary AF performance during both still and video recording.


Eye Detection Autofocus

Z 50’s sophisticated facial recognition algorithm precisely locks focus onto your subjects eye to ensure tack-sharp results, even when your subject is in motion.


Native ISO 100–51,200

Z 50 shines in low light. Shoot stills up to ISO 51,200 with virtually no noise—great for low-light indoor shots or outdoors after dark. Record 4K UHD videos at up to ISO 25,600.


EXPEED 6 Image Processing

Like Z 7 and Z 6, Z 50 is powered by Nikon’s fast, comprehensive EXPEED 6 image processing system. It’s the power behind the camera’s stunning photo and video quality, low-light performance, distortion control and more.


Compact, Lightweight, Portable and Ergonomic

Lightweight, durable and sleek, the Z 50 stays true to the Z series design concept of putting the image creator first. Weighing just 14 ounces, the camera body is easy to carry and will feel like an extension of the user. Authentic controls and dials, state-of-the-art touch LCD technology and an ergonomically shaped grip are just some of the features that define the image creation experience. Minute details have even been fine-tuned to improve comfort, operation and style, including the sensation of the pressurized button clicks, the feel of the rugged metallic structure, the finesse of the body design and the ability to take photos in complete silence, so you can enjoy capturing moments without fear of interrupting them.


Revolutionary Z mount

The Z 50 isn’t just another compact mirrorless camera: it delivers superb image quality. That’s because it uses the same Z mount as its larger siblings, the Nikon Z 7 and Z 6 cameras. This lens mount features a 55mm opening, wider than any competing camera in its class, which invites in a huge amount of light*. The short, 16mm distance from the mount to the image sensor enables more flexible lens design and a smaller camera body. This combination allows engineers to use light more effectively, and develop lenses with outstanding optical performance, providing even higher resolution and more beautiful bokeh. The Z 50 can be used with the dedicated kit lenses, but is also compatible with a growing lineup of superb NIKKOR Z lenses and utilizing the Mount Adapter FTZ its also compatible with approx. 360 F-mount lenses.


Flip-Under LCD

Point the camera towards yourself, flip the tilting monitor 180° downward to face you, and Z 50 will immediately turn into a selfie camera. The operation buttons and dials lock, so you won’t accidentally press the wrong button. Use Touch AF on the LCD to focus and take shots—great for stills, even better for vlogging.


Organic EL Electronic Viewfinder

Put Z 50 to your eye, and the high-resolution organic EL panel automatically turns on and gives you a brilliant, sharp view without any glare. And it’s showing you the shot exactly as it will look—with all camera settings and creative effects applied in real-time. It also displays the same settings as the camera’s LCD monitor, so you can make changes without taking your eye away.


Photo/Movie Selector

When shooting video, you often want to use different camera settings than those you need for stills. Z 50 lets you separately save the most appropriate settings for each shooting mode and then change smoothly between them with the flick of a lever.


Customizable i-menu

New inspiration often strikes when you’re in the middle of shooting. Z 50’s convenient i button gives you a powerful shortcut to adjust camera settings on the fly. The i menu is fully customizable, letting you choose your 12 most frequently used settings and arrange the order for convenience. You can view the i menu items on the LCD monitor or the electronic viewfinder (EVF). You can quickly change these while confirming the results in real time — all without taking your eyes off your subject.

Pop-up Flash

In scenes where your subject appears dark and flat—when backlit or in dark shadows, for example—Z 50’s pop-up flash can be just the right amount of fill light.

Photo & Video Tech 

4K Ultra HD Video Recording
Not all 4K is equal. With an outstanding DX-format image sensor, EXPEED 6 image processing and the power of the larger Z mount, Z 50 records 4K UHD videos with dazzling cinematic depth and clarity.

11 FPS Full Resolution Stills
Capture 11 frames per second* continuously with full quality or up to a blazing fast 30 FPS with 8-megapixel stills in silent video mode.

4K Ultra HD Time-Lapse
Z 50’s time-lapse movie function automatically shoots a series of still images based on your settings and then stitches them together into an astonishing 4K Ultra HD or Full HD video using the entire frame. Gradual changes of light in landscapes, movements of drifting clouds, fast-paced cityscapes—all of these can become jaw-dropping time-lapse sequences.

Multiple Exposure Mode
Easily create unique images that combine multiple shots on top of each other. When capturing multiple exposure shots, you can confirm a semi-transparent view of the overlay image being created on the monitor or the EVF. This makes it easier to frame the next shot, resulting in a finished composition just the way you want.

Special Effects
Get more playful and experimental with your photos and videos. Choose from Night Vision, Super Vivid, Pop, Photo Illustration, Toy Camera Effect, Miniature Camera Effect, Selective Color, Silhouette, High Key and Low Key.

Silent Shooting
Shoot silently* using all 20.9 megapixels in single-frame release mode—ideal for weddings, events, museums, wildlife or any time you don’t want to disturb the moment. You can also shoot 8-megapixel images silently at up to approx. 30 fps in movie-recording mode.

Creative Picture Controls
Playing with different looks and colors can add different nuances to your images. You can see these by applying different Creative Picture Controls, confirming the appearance you get in real time via the monitor or EVF.
