The tools of creativity.
Cutting-edge Z series tech.
Quality that thrills.
What sets the Z fc apart is the 20.9MP DX CMOS sensor paired with the EXPEED 6 engine and the light-gathering advantages of the wider Z mount. Together, they give you clean, professional looking videos and stills, even in low light.
It all starts with the Z mount.
The Z fc is designed around Nikon’s revolutionary Z mount, the widest lens mount of any comparable camera system. A wider mount means more light, and more light means more of everything good—sharpness, contrast, accurate focus, low-light performance and image quality.
Freedom to compose.
Take a moment and appreciate the world around you from fresh perspectives. The Z fc employs a 3.0-in Vari-angle monitor—the first in a Z series camera. Effortlessly shoot vertical shots from low angles.
Set your sights.
The Z fc’s sensor is practically covered in focus points—87% coverage to be precise. That means wherever your subject is within the frame, a focus point is locked on. Compose the way you want.
Nikon’s intelligent Eye-Detection AF for video and stills quickly locks onto eyes—humans, dogs or cats—and follows them. This is especially useful when you can’t be behind the camera, for first-person videos and selfies.
Get your shot. Whatever the light.
ISO sensitivity goes all the way up to ISO 51,200 (expandable to ISO 204,800) with superb sharpness, detail and clarity. Create after hours and in less-than-ideal lighting.
Get creative. In camera.
Add uniqueness to your videos and stills with 20 Creative Picture Controls, all visible in real-time while you shoot through the viewfinder or Vari-angle display. Now, filters are part of the vision rather than an afterthought.
Video done right.
Comprehensive video, vlogging and streaming capabilities. Record 4K Ultra HD video at 30p, 25p or 24p full pixel readout with no cropping. Combined with NIKKOR Z lenses, you’ll maximize the sensor’s resolution and produce videos with lifelike depth and clarity.
The vlogger monitor you’ve been waiting for.
The Z fc’s Vari-angle display can face forward for easier vlogging and first-person recording. This activates self-portrait mode, bringing key camera controls to the monitor so you can conveniently touch and tap adjustments.
Live streaming and web conferencing.
Look your absolute best with the Z fc and a NIKKOR Z lens. Simply connect the camera to your computer with a USB Type-C cable (sold separately)—it provides power too—and compatible software like the free Nikon Webcam Utility. You’ll get sharpness, clarity and flattering depth of field unlike a typical webcam.
The whole time you’re recording, the autofocus system is working, making precise adjustments to keep your subject in sharp focus. This means you can be the one in front of the camera, even streaming live, with total confidence in your footage.
Add an external mic.
Capture high quality sound in-camera using the Z fc’s built-in stereo mic or a dedicated third-party external mic. The 3.5mm stereo mini-pin jack provides plug-in power. Monitor your audio levels on-screen, including a clipping indicator, and make gain adjustments in real-time.
Image transfers. Wireless and automatic.
Pair your smart device to the Z fc from the SnapBridge app once, and your phone and camera are always connected. You can transfer videos and stills manually or set the app to automatically import every still you take, then edit and post your work with your favourite phone apps.
Grab the remote.
When you can’t be behind the camera, pull out your compatible smartphone and use it to control the Z fc. See what the camera sees, change camera settings like aperture and shutter speed, then take the video or still.
Set-up is a snap.
- Open the SnapBridge app
- Tap Remote Photography
- Allow phone to switch to Wi-Fi®
- Start capturing videos and stills!
Always up to date.
SnapBridge wirelessly updates the Z fc’s firmware to the latest and greatest. When paired, the app will notify you of any updates and send the firmware directly to your camera’s memory card for a quick and easy—and totally wireless—install.
Magnesium alloy frame.
Tough, lightweight magnesium alloy frame protects the Z fc against life.
When you don’t need the touchscreen LCD, it’s safely protected within the camera.
Classic round eyepiece.
OLED viewfinder with 100% frame coverage. 1.02x magnification. Real-time preview of exposure, settings and effects.
Built to be easy. Auto mode with Nikon intelligence.
Prefer to let the camera determine the best exposure settings for your situation? Switch the camera to Auto and Nikon’s serious onboard intelligence will take over for you.
Help at the touch of a button.
Not sure what a setting does? Just tap the (?) button and a brief
explanation will pop up in the viewfinder or on the Vari-angle display. It’s like having a quick reference guide built into your camera.
i-Menu. Your menu.
Assign the menu items you use most to the i-Menu. Create separate i-Menu settings for video and still modes. You’ll have a one-click dashboard of the settings you rely on most.
Nikon Z DX 50-250mm f/4.5-6.3 VR
Reach farther. Do more: A telephoto lens gives you more than just zoom power. Telephoto lenses are great for portraits—they render faces naturally without distortion. They make your subject stand out against a soft, blurry background. They let you fill the frame with interesting compositions. And, yes, they also let you get closer to the action—wildlife, sports, concerts, events and more. The NIKKOR Z DX 50-250mm f/4.5-6.3 VR delivers compact, lightweight telephoto capabilities for Z series cameras. Fast, accurate and nearly silent, it's equally adept at videos and stills. As a second lens alongside the NIKKOR Z DX 16-50mm f/3.5-6.3 VR, you can cover just about any shooting situation.
Powerful Image Stabilization: At telephoto distances, the smallest camera movements can blur a photo. Video is even less forgiving—we're all familiar with shaky smartphone videos. The NIKKOR Z DX 50-250mm f/4.5-6.3 VR has the most effective Vibration Reduction (VR) image stabilization system of any NIKKOR yet, up to 5 stops*! Your videos will be rock-steady, and your telephoto photos will be sharp and clear.
Professional-Looking Videos: Telephoto lenses are the best way to get cinematic close-ups and shallow depth of field in your videos. Like high-end cinema lenses, the NIKKOR Z DX 50-250mm f/4.5-6.3 VR is designed to suppress focus breathing—a common occurrence with smartphones that makes videos look amateurish. And both its focusing ring and control ring are virtually silent, so you won't hear any camera noises during recording.
Precision Autofocus: The NIKKOR Z DX 50-250mm f/4.5-6.3 VR uses a blazing fast, nearly silent stepping motor for autofocusing, and it performs brilliantly with Z series' Eye AF to keep focus right where you want it.
High Contrast: An Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass lens element reduces colour defects and glare for sharper, clearer images with outstanding contrast.
Customized Control: Assign your favourite function to the control ring—aperture control (great for iris transitions during video recording), ISO adjustments, exposure compensation or manual focus.
NIKKOR Z: The front line of an imaging revolution: Designed and optimized to take full advantage of the Z system's larger mount, Z lenses like the NIKKOR Z DX 50-250mm f/4.5-6.3 VR gather substantially more light, providing even illumination and improved sharpness from the center of the frame to the far edges. Autofocusing is fast and quiet. Video recording is clean and smooth with highly minimized focus breathing and reduced wobbling. Intuitive on-lens controls can be customized to your individual shooting style and so much more. Z lenses are designed with a sense of consistency that combines reliability and beauty with next-dimension optical performance for complete freedom in image creation.
