Nikon releases new Z5 mirrorless camera.
- 24.3MP FX Sensor (35.9 mm x 23.9 mm)
- Up to 4K UHD at 30fps
- ISO 100 - 51,200 in steps of 1/3 or 1/2 EV
- Touchscreen, Tilting Only
- Dual SD Card Slots
- Built-in Bluetooth and WiFi
Those who primarily shoot video will see changes. While the camera offers 4K UHD up to 30fps, it does come with a 1.7x crop. However, when recording full-HD, it does use the full width of the sensor. Nikon also removes the high-speed shooting modes found on its other mirrorless models, but it did preserve the 5-axis in-body image stabilization that offers 5 stops of correction. The Z5 also won't have 10-bit external N-Log recording through its HDMI port. Shooters will have access to zebra and focus peaking options. Record times are limited to 29 minutes 59 seconds and are wrapped on MOV or MP4 files.
As for the body, the Nikon Z5 uses polycarbonate for the rear and base plates but remains sealed for dust and moisture. The rear touchscreen only tilts; it does not articulate. The weight is nearly identical to the Z6 at 1.3 lbs (585 g). The Z5 will also be able to be used as a webcam.
