Nikon Shows Off Retro-Styled Zf Full-Frame Mirrorless Camera
Nikon recently unveiled their latest addition to their full-frame mirrorless line of cameras. The new Nikon Zf, as it’s being called, is a 24.3-megapixel full-frame mirrorless camera with a retro-styled body reminiscent of classic film cameras. The Nikon Zf was designed with the looks and feel of classic film cameras, while still being incredibly modern and powerful in its capabilities.
The camera features a 24.3-megapixel backside-illuminated CMOS sensor and the EXPEED 5 image processor. This combination allows for lightning-fast autofocus performance and up to 9 frames per second continuous shooting speed with full-frame resolution. Additionally, the Zf boasts an ISO range of 100-51,200, allowing for unparalleled low-light performance.
Nikon has also included a detachable Electronic Viewfinder (EVF) in the design. The EVF is large and bright, offering 2.36 million dots of resolution and 100% coverage of the frame. It is tiltable to compose from different angles, and boasts low-latency lag time.
The Zf features a weather-resistant body with a classic design. The body is made up of a mix of plastic and metal, and is currently offered in black or silver finishes. It comes with two control dials and a set of programmable function buttons that allow users to customize their experience.
The Nikon Zf also features built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity. This allows users to wirelessly share photos to their smartphones and transfer photos from their camera to their computer. Additionally, users can control the camera remotely with the Nikon Snapbridge app.
The Nikon Zf is scheduled to be released in the spring of 2021. The camera is expected to be priced around $2,500 (body only). Nikon has also announced a full-frame mirrorless system lens lineup with three F-mount lenses that will work with the Zf.
