Nikon Z5 Overview

By B&H Photo's
Nikon Z5 Mirrorless Camera
High-Resolution Photo and Video
Compact and capable, the Nikon Z5 is an FX-format mirrorless camera with a well-rounded feature-set to suit both photo and video needs. Its 24.3MP CMOS sensor and EXPEED 6 processor afford wide sensitivity to ISO 51200, quick shooting at 4.5 fps, and UHD 4K video at 30 fps. Complementing the sensor and processor is a sleek but versatile physical design that includes a magnesium alloy chassis with a weather-sealed construction to suit working in inclement weather. A high-resolution 3.6m-dot OLED electronic viewfinder allows for high-res eye-level viewing while a rear 3.2" 1.04m-dot tilting touchscreen LCD accommodates working from high and low angles. Additionally, for easy sharing, built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth work in conjunction with the Nikon SnapBridge app for wirelessly transferring photos and videos and remotely controlling the camera from your mobile device.
24.3MP FX-Format CMOS Sensor and EXPEED 6 Image Processor
The full-frame, FX-format 24.3MP CMOS sensor is paired with an EXPEED 6 image processor to provide a versatile mixture of high sensitivity, nuanced image quality, and fast overall performance. A native sensitivity range from ISO 100-51200 permits working in a broad array of lighting conditions and can be further expanded up to ISO 102400 for extreme low-light conditions. The mixture of resolution and sensor size also contributes to clean image quality and smooth color transitions with reduced noise throughout the sensitivity range. In addition to benefitting image quality, the EXPEED 6 processor also affords useful speed throughout the camera system, including a top full-resolution continuous shooting rate of 4.5 fps as well as the ability to take 8MP when recording video.

Besides imaging, the sensor's design also incorporates a 273-point hybrid autofocus system that uses both phase-detection and contrast-detection methods to quickly and accurately acquire focus for both stills and video applications. This focusing system supports Eye Detection AF, which uses facial recognition to help lock focus onto subjects' eyes, along with Face Detection for both stills and video and for both humans and animals.
UHD 4K Video Recording
Capable of recording more than just stills, the Z5 supports UHD 4K video recording at up to 30 fps and Full HD recording at up to 60 fps, with the ability to save movie files to the in-camera memory cards or to an optional external recorder via HDMI out. UHD 4K recording uses a 1.7x crop of the center portion of the frame while Full HD recording uses the entire full frame. Additionally, in-camera time-lapse shooting is also possible with the ability to produce a finished UHD 4K video file directly from the camera.
Sensor-Shift Vibration Reduction
Built-in to the body is a 5-axis sensor-shift Vibration Reduction (VR) mechanism that compensates for up to five stops of stabilization regardless of the lens in use. This system also works with adapted lenses, when using the optional FTZ Adapter, where 3-axis stabilization is used. Also, benefitting video recording, Electronic VR is available to help steady footage to suit handheld shooting.
Body Design and Connectivity
  • A large 3.2" 1.04m-dot LCD screen is available for bright, clear, and vivid image playback and live view shooting. The screen has a tilting design to suit working from high and low angles and it is also a touchscreen for more intuitive operation, navigation, and settings control.
  • A 3.69m-dot electronic finder is present for comfortable eye-level viewing.
  • Dual SD memory cards slots both support up to the UHS-II protocol for high-speed and efficient photo and video file saving.
  • A robust magnesium alloy chassis is both dust- and weather-resistant to benefit working in harsh climates and inclement conditions.
  • Built-in SnapBridge connectivity to enable seamless transfer of low-resolution imagery as well as remote shooting capabilities. BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) and Wi-Fi enables communication between the camera and a smart device and, additionally, the mobile device can remotely trigger the shutter and display a live view image from the camera to enable working from a distance.
  • Included EN-EL15c rechargeable lithium-ion battery provides approximately 470 shots per charge, and in-camera charging is supported via USB, even when the camera is in use. Additionally, it is also compatible with optional MB-N10 multi-battery power pack for extended shooting times.
Other Camera Features
  • Creative Picture Controls: Dream, Morning, Pop, Sunday, Somber, Dramatic, Silence, Bleached, Melancholic, Pure, Denim, Toy, Sepia, Blue, Red, Pink, Charcoal, Graphite, Binary, and Carbon.
  • Multiple Exposure mode lets you combine several exposures into one frame for creative effects.
  • Focus Shift mode automatically takes a series of up to 300 sequential images while advancing the focus position in each shot. These images can then be stacked into a single image with extended depth of field, making it ideal for close-up shooting of smaller objects as well as for landscapes and other still subjects.
  • Language support: English, French, Portuguese (Brazil), Spanish.
Nikon NIKKOR Z 24-200mm f/4-6.3 VR Lens

A one-lens solution for working in a wide variety of shooting situations, the NIKKOR Z 24-200mm f/4-6.3 VR from Nikon is an all-in-one 8.3x zoom covering wide-angle to telephoto focal lengths. An advanced optical design, which uses a series of aspherical and ED elements, pairs with both ARNEO and Nano Crystal Coatings to produce sharp and clear image quality with high contrast and accurate color rendering to benefit working in various lighting conditions.

The impressive zoom reach is also benefitted by Vibration Reduction image stabilization, which minimizes the appearance of camera shake by up to 5 stops for sharper handheld shooting. A stepping motor provides quick, quiet, and precise autofocus performance along with full-time manual focus override to suit both stills and video applications. Also, a programmable control ring can be set for intuitive adjustment over a variety of camera and exposure settings.

All-in-one zoom covers wide-angle to telephoto fields of view and is designed for FX-format Z-mount mirrorless cameras, however, can also be used with DX cameras where it will provide a 36-300mm equivalent focal length range.
Two aspherical elements and one aspherical ED element is used to reduce spherical aberrations and distortion in order to realize sharp imagery with accurate rendering.
Two extra-low dispersion elements greatly reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations throughout the zoom range in order to produce greater clarity and color rendering.
ARNEO and Nano Crystal Coats are used to prevent ghosting, reflections, and flare in order to realize improved contrast and clarity when working in strong lighting and backlit conditions. The Nano Crystal Coat controls incidental light from a diagonal direction while the ARNEO Coat controls incidental light from a vertical direction. A Super Integrated Coating is also featured on multiple elements to help ensure consistently accurate colors.
Stepping motor delivers impressively smooth, quiet, and fast autofocus performance that is well-suited to both stills and video applications. Full-time manual focus override is also possible and an internal focusing design is used, where only the internal lens groups are moved during focusing, to maintain the overall length of the lens during use and to promote faster focusing speeds.
Vibration Reduction image stabilization minimizes the appearance of camera shake by up to 5 stops for sharper handheld shooting.
Programmable Control Ring is, by default, set to adjust manual focus, but can also be used to control aperture or exposure compensation.
Specialized electromagnetic aperture mechanism provides greater exposure control stability that is especially beneficial when working with fast continuous shooting rates.
Rounded seven-blade diaphragm promotes a pleasing out of focus quality that benefits the use of shallow depth of field and selective focus techniques.
Dust- and moisture-resistant lens barrel benefits the lens' use in inclement conditions.

Nikon Z5 Reviews

Z5 Review

By Ralph
Rated 4 out of 5
Date: 2023-03-10

Very happy with this camera. It is not that heavy and after owning several Nikon cameras, it was fairly easy to learn the menus and other features. I also bought it with the 24 to 120 mm f4 lens. With that lens the camera/lens is pretty heavy, but very versatile. Later on I bought a 28 mm lens and that mounted on the Z5 makes for a great Street camera system. It is very light and nimble. I think the camera would have been better with a built in flash to use as a"fill flash". Now I have to use my old SB 400 as a fill flash. My worry is that if the SB400 dies I'll have to look carefully for another flash like it that is as small and light. Overall the image quality is excellent. I really like how the camera works in the manual mode and with my older lenses (with the lens adapter). The videos I have made are very good. Recommend to get a longer strap for all around carry.

I am little surprised

My goto camera has been a Nikon D850 and I have used it for a fair number of years. I bought this for snapshots. I was surprised. It doesn't have the number of pixels the D850 has but it IS sharp; it has much of the control offered by the D850; and it is very easy to use. I still use the D850 for precise work and for tough situations but this has become an often used tool. And it is very light. Very nice !

best camera yet

Nikon Z5 Mirrorless Camera with 24-70mm f/4 Lens

Just getting into landscape photography as a hobby and for family photography, I purchased this as my first full frame mirrorless camera. Although I am still learning, I took some amazing photos on my first trip to the lake. I love the versatility of the lens and the ease of use and the quality of the Z5 camera. So far, I am impressed with my overall purchase and the information and speed of delivery from B&H.

I am an armature photographer, but I have been for 30 years. I bought this on a whim really. I am so glad I did. What a camera. It takes incredible pictures and video. I have another more compact Olympus mirror less camera. Now I have 2 cameras I truly love. My Z5 is feature rich beyond belief. The low light capabilities are impressive. Only minor issue is when just doing snap shots there is no built in flash, but with the low light abilities its not a real issue.

Good mirrorless camera and lens combination

Good mirrorless camera and lens combination. Still learning this camera, but I am impressed so far. The 24-200mm lens is a good 'walking around' lens for general photography. The camera bag that came with this exceeded my expectations!

Great to Return to Nikon

After years with Nikon in film days, and some time with early DX digital Nikons, I switched to Sony and then Fuji. All great cameras and lens, but I wanted to try Nikon in digital full frame and the Z5 with this light and excellent lens. I am very pleased with the image quality and comfortable feel of the Nikon body an it's familiar menus. One very minor negative is the camera bag that came with this kit. It is too small to comfortably hold the Z5 with this lens mounted, particularly with the lens hood on the lens even in the reversed storage orientation. camera specs-to-price ratio (in my opinion)

I starting using the Nikon z system for over 2 years now and it is because of this camera, I love Nikon's characteristic in producing photos. It produces photos that look like film photos, but with just enough digital design. I appreciate the amazing dynamic range I can work with and the autofocus is fast. Don't be fooled by those who say it could be faster or better because you can't let the camera do all the work and then complain it's too slow. We are blessed in today's digital advancement and we need to remember that the gear is just as good as its user. Back to the review, the f-mount lenses adapted to this camera with the FTZ adapter works wonders! The 85mm f1.8 G is so sharp and this camera takes it to another level. DUAL CARD SLOTS btw!! Overall, if you are in need of a great (and reliable) camera and are looking for your first full frame camera, this is the camera is the one for you. Depending on the time you are reading this, keep a look out on Black Friday (I got my Z5 body with an FTZ adapter for only $999). This is fast auto focusing camera on both video and photo modes. Canon RP is fine for photo, but unreliable for video (MFT cameras like the Lumix g9 is way better...). I've worked with the Canon RP for about a year and Lumix cameras for over 4 years.

The Z5 does not have this function, you can easily make the image into a positive in a photo editing software.
