Nikon’s Entry-Level Full-Frame Mirrorless Camera From Z-series Launched in India
Nikon’s Entry-Level Full-Frame Mirrorless Camera From Z-series Launched in India. The full-frame mirrorless Nikon Z5 entry-level camera has just been launched in India. This is the most powerful Z-series camera with a full-frame sensor currently available to Nikon.
The Nikon Z5 sports a new sensor and it also gets in-body image stabilisation (IBIS), dual SD card slots and the capacity to fire up to 4 K video despite its lower location in the series. The Nikon Z5 will be available in India from August 27 for just the body at a retail price of Rs. 1,13,995. A new NIKKOR Z 24-50 mm f/4-6.3 kit lens was also revealed by Nikon, which it claims is the smallest and lightest Z-mount lens it has ever produced. The Z5 will be available with this lens at a bundled price of 1,36,995 Rs.
The Nikon Z5 inherits many features from its bigger siblings, the Z6 and Z7, including the five-axis IBIS, autofocus system and design. But it does come with a new full-frame 24.3-megapixel sensor. It also uses the same Expeed 6 image processor, and has a 100-51,200 ISO range close to the Nikon Z6. Burst shot pace is slightly lower, at 4.5fps. The Z5 also features two SD card slots, with UHD-II speed support. This also has the same magnesium alloy structure as the Z6 and Z7, but durability evidence of some degree.
The Z5 has been fitted by Nikon with 273 on-sensor autofocus (AF) points with support for human and animal eye detection AF. You get an electronic viewfinder of 3.6 million dot resolution, and a 3.2-inch tilting rear LCD display with touch support. The Z5 also has a new battery, EN-EL15c, which Nikon says is perfect for 470 shots per charge. The camera can fire up to 4 K 30fps, but without any filter, with a 1.7x crop factor or up to 1080p 60fps. The Nikon Z5 ports include Micro-HDMI, microphone, speaker and USB Type-C. Using a compatible power bank, the latter port can be used to charge the camera.
