QUICKFACT SHEETThe Nikon Z 50 target vloggers and content creators. It is small and lightweight, and comes with a built-in stereo microphone, an LCD screen that flips down to face forward for easy selfies, and 4K/30P video.
Other practical features include in-camera time-lapse, live streaming, Full HD/120P for slow motion, Eye and Face AF, creative Picture Controls for artistic effects and filters, and a Self-Portrait Mode. You can download the free Nikon SnapBridge app onto your smartphone to see what the camera sees, start and stop recording and take photos remotely. The SnapBridge app also lets you wirelessly share between the Z 50 and a compatible smartphone or tablet.
The Z 50 has e-VR for video, but lacks in-body VR (Vibration Reduction, aka IBIS: In-Body Image Stabilization), so you’ll have to depend on the OIS (Optical Image Stabilization) built into an attached lens. Just look for the “VR” label on the lens: e.g., both the Nikkor Z DX 16-50mm f/3.5-6.3 VR wide-angle zoom lens and the Nikkor Z DX 50-250mm f/4.5-6.3 VR telephoto zoom lens that are available as a kit with the Z 50 have VR image stabilization.
