Nikon Z50 APS-C mirrorless camera additional information



Some new/additional information on the upcoming Nikon Z50 APS-C mirrorless camera:

  • Nikon Z50 price: €900 in most European countries (around $980)
  • Nikon Z50 kit price with the new Nikkor Z 16-55mm (or 16-50mm) f/3.5-6.3 VR lens: €1,100 (around $1,200)
  • The Nikon Z50 will have a rear screen that can be tilted downwards for selfies but it will not work with selfie sticks
  • 4k video
  • Maximum shutter speed: 1/4000
  • The Nikon Z50 will be a direct Sony a6400 camera competitor

Previously reported Z50 specifications:

  • 20MP APS-C sensor (based on the D500 sensor)
  • Single SD card slot
  • 3" pivoted LCD
  • 11 fps
  • No IBIS
  • Fixed EVF (not removable EVF as described in the latest design patents)
  • New Nikon EN-EL25 battery
  • Announcement date: October 10th
  • The official announcement could be as early as next week
  • The Z50 will be the equivalent of the D7xxx DSLR cameras
  • Two new APS-S mirrorless lenses: Z-Nikkor 16-55mm f/3.5-6.3 and Z-Nikkor 50-250mm f/4.5-6.3
  • The Nikon Z50 will look very similar to the Nikon Z1 prototype camera - it was described to me as a smaller version of the Z6/Z7

My personal guess is that Nikon will show a new Nikkor Z APS-C roadmap and I think we will finally see some prime DX lenses - something we missed in the F-mount lineup (please note that this is just my personal guess, I have no reliable info on that rumor).

There are several new Nikon product boxes design patents that could be used for the new products:




Thanks James O'Keefe!
