Early this morning, Nikon announced the upcoming Z 5, a full-frame mirrorless camera that’s geared toward those that are looking to break into the Nikon mirrorless system.
Featuring a 24.3-megapixel sensor, the Z 5 has in-camera vibration reduction capabilities and an EXPEED 6 processor, Nikon’s fastest processor to date. The camera features an ISO range up to 51,200 (expandable up to 102,400) and 4.5fps with full autofocus capabilities.
Check out a first look shared by Nikon below.
The camera also includes two UHS-II SD card slots.
In terms of autofocus, the Z 5 has 2,731 on-sensor AF points and Eye-Detection AF capabilities that works on humans and animals. The camera also has 20 Creative Picture Controls, and advanced features like Focus Shift Shooting and multiple exposure mode.
On the video side, the Z 5 allows for capture in 4K UHD at 30p or 1080p at 60p. There is also a new Time-Lapse Movie mode that allows for easy capture of time-lapse sequences.
Finally, the Z 5 is designed to be fully weather-sealed, employing the same magnesium alloy shell and robustness as Nikon’s Z 6 and Z 7 cameras.
The Nikon Z 5 will be available in August starting at $1396.95; pre-orders are now available.
