  • Smartphone Pairing
  • The 16-50mm lens kit pairs the small but mighty Z 50 with the smallest Nikon DX lens ever, the NIKKOR Z 16-50mm f/3.5-6.3. The NIKKOR Z 16-50mm f/3.5-6.3 lens offers a versatile zoom range of 16-50mm, with Vibration Reduction (VR) image stabilization built-into the lens; and quiet operation, making it ideal for video as well as still images.
  • The Z 50 takes full advantage of Nikon's larger Z-mount, providing creators of all types with the most innovative optical system for superior image and video quality. The compact and lightweight Z 50 was made for unique individuals seeking a camera that has the speed, portability and style to keep pace and share their creative storytelling and imagination, especially when paired with the ultra-compact 16-50mm zoom (Included) and the slim 50-250mm telephoto zoom (Sold Separately).
  • Taking advantage of the Nikon Z mount, the Z 50 produces stunning image quality and provides optimal performance for any type of content creation, from still photography to high-quality 4K video.
  • INSIDE Z 50
  • 20.9 Megapixel DX-Format CMOS Image Sensor:
  • Based on the sensor design from the award-winning D500, previously considered by many to be the best DX DSLR in Nikon's history, this remarkable Z series sensor captures staggering detail, even in challenging light.
  • Built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth:
  • Z 50 has built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth and works seamlessly with a compatible smart device using Nikon's SnapBridge app. Instantly transfer photos and videos right to your smart device, or use it for remote shooting - see what the camera sees, adjust settings and control the shutter or start/stop video recording.
  • 209-Point Hybrid Autofocus:
  • 209 focus points and focal-plane phase-detection pixels are incorporated right into the image sensor for extraordinary AF performance during both still and video recording.
  • Eye Detection Autofocus:
  • Z 50's sophisticated facial recognition algorithm precisely locks focus onto your subjects eye to ensure tack-sharp results, even when your subject is in motion.
  • Native ISO 100-51,200:
  • Z 50 shines in low light. Shoot stills up to ISO 51,200 with virtually no noise - great for low-light indoor shots or outdoors after dark. Record 4K UHD videos at up to ISO 25,600.
  • Expeed 6 Image Processing:
  • Like Z 7 and Z 6, Z 50 is powered by Nikon's fast, comprehensive EXPEED 6 image processing system. It's the power behind the camera's stunning photo and video quality, low-light performance, distortion control and more.
  • OUTSIDE Z 50
  • Compact, Lightweight, Portable and Ergonomic:
  • Lightweight, durable and sleek, the Z 50 stays true to the Z series design concept of putting the image creator first. Weighing just 14 ounces, the camera body is easy to carry and will feel like an extension of the user. Authentic controls and dials, state-of-the-art touch LCD technology and an ergonomically shaped grip are just some of the features that define the image creation experience. Minute details have even been fine-tuned to improve comfort, operation and style, including the sensation of the pressurized button clicks, the feel of the rugged metallic structure, the finesse of the body design and the ability to take photos in complete silence, so you can enjoy capturing moments without fear of interrupting them.
  • Revolutionary Z mount:
  • The Z 50 isn't just another compact mirrorless camera: it delivers superb image quality. That's because it uses the same Z mount as its larger siblings, the Nikon Z 7 and Z 6 cameras. This lens mount features a 55mm opening, wider than any competing camera in its class, which invites in a huge amount of light*. The short, 16mm distance from the mount to the image sensor enables more flexible lens design and a smaller camera body. This combination allows engineers to use light more effectively, and develop lenses with outstanding optical performance, providing even higher resolution and more beautiful bokeh. The Z 50 can be used with the dedicated kit lenses, but is also compatible with a growing lineup of superb NIKKOR Z lenses and utilizing the Mount Adapter FTZ its also compatible with approx. 360 F-mount lenses.
  • *As of October 10, 2019.
  • Flip-Under LCD:
  • Point the camera towards yourself, flip the tilting monitor 180 degree downward to face you, and Z 50 will immediately turn into a selfie camera. The operation buttons and dials lock, so you won't accidentally press the wrong button. Use Touch AF on the LCD to focus and take shots - great for stills, even better for vlogging.
  • Organic EL Electronic Viewfinder:
  • Put Z 50 to your eye, and the high-resolution organic EL panel automatically turns on and gives you a brilliant, sharp view without any glare. And it's showing you the shot exactly as it will look - with all camera settings and creative effects applied in real time. It also displays the same settings as the camera's LCD monitor, so you can make changes without taking your eye away.
  • Photo/Movie Selector:
  • When shooting video, you often want to use different camera settings than those you need for stills. Z 50 lets you separately save the most appropriate settings for each shooting mode and then change smoothly between them with the flick of a lever.
  • Customizable i-menu:
  • New inspiration often strikes when you're in the middle of shooting. Z 50's convenient i button gives you a powerful shortcut to adjust camera settings on the fly. The i menu is fully customizable, letting you choose your 12 most frequently used settings and arrange the order for convenience. You can view the i menu items on the LCD monitor or the electronic viewfinder (EVF). You can quickly change these while confirming the results in real time - all without taking your eyes off your subject.
  • Pop-up Flash:
  • In scenes where your subject appears dark and flat - when backlit or in dark shadows, for example - Z 50's pop-up flash can be just the right amount of fill light.
  • 4K Ultra HD Video Recording:
  • Not all 4K is equal. With an outstanding DX-format image sensor, Expeed 6 image processing and the power of the larger Z mount, Z 50 records 4K UHD videos with dazzling cinematic depth and clarity.
  • 11 FPS Full Resoution Stills:
  • Capture 11 frames per second* continuously with full quality or up to a blazing fast 30 FPS with 8-megapixel stills in silent video mode.
  • * When using a mechanical shutter, in continuous H (extended) release mode and NEF (12-bit RAW) + JPEG image quality.
  • 120 FPS Slow Motion Video:
  • Record 1080p Full HD videos at an ultra-smooth 120 frames per second, making it possible to bend time, speed ramp and more.
  • 4K Ultra HD Time-Lapse:
  • Z 50's time-lapse movie function automatically shoots a series of still images based on your settings and then stitches them together into an astonishing 4K Ultra HD or Full HD video using the entire frame. Gradual changes of light in landscapes, movements of drifting clouds, fast-paced cityscapes - all of these can become jaw-dropping time-lapse sequences.
  • Multiple Exposure Mode:
  • Easily create unique images that combine multiple shots on top of each other. When capturing multiple exposure shots, you can confirm a semi-transparent view of the overlay image being created on the monitor or the EVF. This makes it easier to frame the next shot, resulting in a finished composition just the way you want.
  • Special Effects:
  • Get more playful and experimental with your photos and videos. Choose from Night Vision, Super Vivid, Pop, Photo Illustration, Toy Camera Effect, Miniature Camera Effect, Selective Color, Silhouette, High Key and Low Key. With Z 50, you can apply the effects in real time to create your ideal shots.
  • Silent Shooting:
  • Shoot silently* using all 20.9 megapixels in single-frame release mode - ideal for weddings, events, museums, wildlife or any time you don't want to disturb the moment. You can also shoot 8-megapixel images silently at up to approx. 30 fps in movie-recording mode.
  • * Aperture and AF drive sound may occur. If a NIKKOR F lens is used with the Mount Adapter FTZ, aperture, VR driving and initial lens driving sounds may occur, for instance when turning on the camera.
  • Note: Rolling shutter distortion may occur during silent photography.
  • Creative Picture Controls:
  • Playing with different looks and colors can add different nuances to your images. You can see these by applying different Creative Picture Controls, confirming the appearance you get in real time via the monitor or EVF. It helps you create your ideal image, and the camera even lets you adjust the level within each Creative Picture Control.
  • Tiny has never been a bigger deal:
  • Meet the Z series mirrorless camera for the rest of us. Insanely small. Tough. Dead simple to use. Connected to your phone. Ready to transform you into a pro-caliber creator. Your followers won't know what hit'em.

  • Shines in low light:
  • With a 20.9MP DX CMOS sensor, a robust EXPEED 6 engine and the light-gathering advantages of the wider Z mount, photos and videos shot in low light look clean and professional.
  • See for your selfie:
  • Flip down the LCD screen to activate Self Portrait Mode - perfect for taking selfies and for vlogging.

  • NIKKOR Z DX 16-50mm f/3.5-6.3 VR Lens
  • The smallest, lightest NIKKOR Z lens. An excellent DX-format everyday photo and video lens that covers the sweet spot of the zoom range. Capture wide street scenes and landscapes as easily as portraits and close-ups. Powerful VR image stabilization. Fast, near-silent autofocus with suppressed focus breathing. Fantastic image quality. This is an ideal travel and on-the-go lens.
  • See the big picture with the smallest of lenses:
  • The absolute smallest NIKKOR Z lens - the smallest DX format lens ever, in fact - the NIKKOR Z DX 16-50mm f/3.5-6.3 VR covers the sweet spot of the zoom range, letting you capture street scenes and landscapes as easily as portraits and close-ups. It has powerful Vibration Reduction (VR) image stabilization to keep your videos steady and your photos sharp. It focuses quickly and silently and suppresses focus breathing - ideal for recording videos and high-speed action. And when not in use, it retracts into itself for a compact profile and added protection.
  • NIKKOR Image Quality:
  • Capture vibrant street scenes, landscapes, portraits, selfies, low light, action, how-to videos and more. This little powerhouse can do so much.
  • Small and Mighty:
  • Delivers big imaging power and durability in an ultra-compact package. When used on the Z 50, you've got Nikon's smallest DX interchangeable lens camera configuration ever.
  • Rock Steady:
  • Built-in VR image stabilization keeps you sharp and steady, even when handheld. It also lets you shoot stills at slower shutter speeds (up to 4.5 stops*) - a huge advantage in low-light situations.
  • Wide or Vertical 4K Videos:
  • The NIKKOR Z DX 16-50mm f/3.5-6.3 VR's zoom range is ideal for everything from interviews and how-to videos to close-ups and establishing shots. Like high-end cinema lenses, it's designed to suppress focus breathing - a common occurrence with smartphones, that makes videos look amateurish. Plus, its AF motor, focusing ring and control ring are virtually silent, so the camera's built-in mic won't pick up noise from the lens during recording.
  • Precision Autofocus:
  • The NIKKOR Z DX 16-50mm f/3.5-6.3 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.
