According to recent reports, Nikon can anytime announce a replacement mirrorless camera, the first APS-C model of the Z series. There hasn’t been a lot of info concerning the camera up to now, but we now know more about the expected specs. And what’s a lot of, the camera may be coming as soon as next week.
According to Photo Rumours, the Z50 will be the mirrorless equivalent of Nikon’s D7xxx series of DSLRs. Design-wise it’ll reportedly look terribly kind of like the Nikon Z1 example camera, like “a smaller version of the Z6/Z7.” It will feature a rear screen that can be tilted downward for selfies, but it will reportedly not work with selfie sticks (oh, what a shame). Still, I believe that vloggers will find it useful.
The Z50 will allegedly feature a 20MP APS-C sensor based on the Nikon D500 DSLR, boasts 11fps continuous shooting, 4K video capability, a 3-inch flip-down touchscreen LCD for selfies, a single SD card slot, no IBIS, and a price tag of around $1,000 for the body-only or about $1,200 in a kit with a new Nikon Z 16-55mm f/3.5-6.3 lens designed specifically for APS-C sensors.
Now for the prices: the body only could be priced around €900 in most European countries (around $980). The body with the 16-55mm lens can reportedly be €1,100 (around $1,200). As I discussed, the official announcement date might be just around the corner. It’s reported to be ten Gregorian calendar month which is a week for now. So, let’s wait and see.
Here are the specs that are reported therefore far:
20MP APS-C sensor (based on the D500 sensor)
Maximum shutter speed: 1/4000
Single SD card slot,3″ pivoted LCD
Fixed EVF (not removable EVF as represented within the latest style patents)
