The Nikon Z fc is an APS-C mirrorless camera that combines Nikon’s new Z lens mount with looks and controls that recall the company’s classic FM and FE-series film SLRs.
The Z fc is the second crop-sensor Nikon camera to use the company’s Z-mount and is built around the same 20.9MP sensor as the Nikon Z50, but it gains dedicated dials for ISO, shutter speed and exposure compensation to go with its throwback styling. Nikon says it’s aiming the camera at a younger, style-conscious audience.
Nikon Z Fc Key specifications
- 20.9MP CMOS sensor
- Burst shooting up to 11 fps with full AF (9 fps with 14-bit Raw)
- Oversampled UHD 4K video at up to 30p, using the sensor’s full width
- Fully articulating 1.04M-dot rear touchscreen
- 2.36M-dot OLED viewfinder
- Manual ISO, shutter speed and exposure compensation dials
The Z fc is priced at $960 body-only, $1100 with a silver version of the 16-50mm F3.5-6.3 VR zoom and $1200 with the retro-looking 28mm F2.8 (SE) prime lens.
The Z fc will primarily be sold in silver with black leatherette patches, but six versions with colored grip material will also be available in limited quantities. Pink, Mint Green, White, Grey, Amber Brown and Sand Beige versions will cost $100 more than the regular model and, in North America at least, will only be sold through Nikon’s web store.
