Nikon Z FC is a mirrorless camera with film roots

(Pocket-lint) – The Nikon Z FC is a fresh new digital camera released in 2021, even though it has a design reminiscent of cameras from the past.

However, this is because the Z FC is based on Nikon’s FM2 single-lens reflex camera, which was introduced in 1982. This legacy design has been adopted for the present day in the form of a mirrorless camera.

This is not the first time Nikon has pursued this course of action. The firm introduced the Df, a full-frame (FX) DSLR camera, in 2014. It was modelled by the brand’s iconic F series of film SLR cameras from the 1960s.

So tell me, what exactly is the Z FC all about? It is a member of the Z series family, designed to broaden the mirrorless line-up of the camera manufacturer, and it was built atop Nikon’s crop-factor sensor, which is termed DX.

This includes high-resolution cameras such as the Z50, which the ZFC closely resembles in terms of its fundamental specifications, such as the 20.9-megapixel resolution sensor it possesses. Aside from that, it has a built-in OLED viewfinder, a vari-angle LCD touchscreen, a 209-point focusing system, and it can even record 4K video (at 30fps).

The design and dials arrangement of the retro-looking FC are what truly set it apart from other cameras, and the silver-topped finish helped to bring this camera into the spotlight. It’s interesting that Nikon’s official website also sells six different colour body options.

The Nikon Z FC will be available beginning on July 28, 2021, with a body-only pricing of £899, $959.95, or €1,049.
