Nikon Z FC Review: Fashion Over Focus

Nikon Z FC is a 20.9-megapixel APS-C camera with a small body. The body costs Rs. 71,425 (approximate ), and the Rs. 82,257.54 approximate kit featured a Nikkor Z DX 16-50mm f/3.5-6.3 lens that ejects whenever not in utilize for a slimmer profile.

It’s a throwback take on Nikon Z FC entrance mirrorless cam, the Nikon Z50, with added capabilities including full-time focussing on the eye during shooting video, software upgrades via an application, a speedier USB C connector for charging and data transmission, and a completely hinged LCD display.

Unlike Nikon’s previous Df, which stripped functionality from a DSLR in the service of retro reconstructions, the Nikon Z FC is unaffected — it can take full-resolution photographs at up to 11 fps as well 4K 30fps video for up to 30 min.

Nikon Z FC photos taken with the 16-50mm kit lens are sharp, with a smooth and attractive focus drop. The RAW files provide you with a lot of flexibility when it comes to bringing down highlights or brightening up shadows. I was very pleased with the Nikon Z FC handling in low-light circumstances.

In low light, rather than a tangle of color spots as well as pixelation, the grain has a film-like, smooth texture that isn’t bothersome whenever viewed on a small screen like a cellphone.
