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.

The imaging capabilities further translate to a refined autofocus system with 273 selectable points, and is a hybrid focusing system that uses both phase-detection and contrast-detection methods for high-speed, accurate focusing with adept subject tracking. Face Detection can be used in both stills and video modes while the more precise Eye Detection benefits portrait photographers working with either human or animal subjects.

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.

NIKKOR Z 24-200mm f/4-6.3 VR Lens

Included with the camera body is the NIKKOR Z 24-200mm f/4-6.3 VR lens; an all-in-one 8.3x zoom covering wide-angle to super 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 all-in-one 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.

Nikon Z5 Reviews

Meets professional level needs

By Erik
Rated 4 out of 5
Date: 2022-08-10

It was an easy choice for me. I have two D750 bodies I still use, but having a more compact, quieter camera for my photojournalism jobs I find this camera supports all those needs. It's not the fastest camera, but I'm not missing any shots. The files look beautiful, the camera feels great in my hands and I love those barely audible shutters especially when I'm getting close to people I'm just only meeting during an assignment. My only complaint is that I mostly use prime lenses and when switching non-Z-mount lens off of that mount adapter is not the easiest thing to do, especially during soft early morning light. I'm sure over time it will become pure muscle memory, but so far it's not a favorite moment during my shoots. Most of my work is still work, but the video is solid with great stabilization. No complaints there at all. Also, having dual SD cards feels like a no brainer. Who wants to spend more on card space. Battery life is less than what I got with my D750s. But my last shoot I took about 2000 frames shooting in RAW, no stabilization, in manuel mode, and I was looking through that camera viewfinder a lot for a 4-hour shoot and the battery was 1/4 depleted by the end of that shoot. So not as bad as I heard at all. Overall I'm very happy with this camera

t is a versatile, very useful piece of equipment, from the Mirolles line, from the brands that I have tried, NIKON is definitely the best, and even more so with its autofocus system, it is great, even for improving focus in low light conditions, however , I do not change it for another brand, I love nijon definitely

I was hoping this could be a carry-around camera, but it's a bit too heavy. I do love the feel of the shutter. Was also hoping to get results similar to D750. Still evaluating this. The S lens seems to have something special compared to non-S or maybe its just a placebo effect.

Moving up in the world

By David
Rated 5 out of 5

After many years of not having a DLSR and using various point-n-shoot cameras as well as a long zoom "bridge" camera, I decided to get back into photography more seriously. Much thought was given to buying a used Nikon D810, the D850 being beyond my reach. I wanted a goodly number of pixels but the prices for such cameras was more than I could justify. After reading many reviews I decided to take the plunge into the mirrorless world. The Z5 thus far has been a great camera for me. Complicated yes, but very much worth the learning curve. The 24-200 zoom is nice travel lens. While I would have preferred to have a fixed aperture lens, this gets my foot in the door while I find my way. The rest of the kit fills out my current needs and skill level. A good purchase!

Great second Z body to back up the Z9

By Robert
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-06-01

I bought this as a second camera for my wife to second shoot with at weddings. It allows us to share my growing collection of Z glass. I shot exclusively with it for several weeks while waiting for the Z9 to arrive, and I have to say I really warmed up to this camera. The size is great, and the feature content is surprisingly nice for the price point. The 24-70mm f4 is great for my needs. I previously had the 24-70 f2.8 for my DSLR and I don't miss the extra stop. I do enjoy the smaller size and reduced weight.

Great camera

Easy to use, thoroughly modern mirrorless camera that easily competes. Lens pairing is wonderful too, the 24-70 is wonderful and surprisingly light/compact compared to most of the other Z lenses. I've put this body/lens combo through moderate use in snow, and some in light rain, and the weather sealing seems to be pretty bombproof. A durable, comfortable, easy-to-use camera that produces great images. JPGs are excellent, no need to compulsively shoot raw for basic events or everyday shooting. Battery life is decent but nothing special. Autofocus is fast and tracking is adequate. I really enjoy using this (relatively) simple but powerful camera. I haven't done much video work with this setup so I can't comment on that.

Great Z series option

By Nathan
Rated 4 out of 5
Date: 2022-07-04

I have two of these now for my regular work doing real estate photography using the FTZii adapters so I can use my existing F glass. The Z5 is just as good as the Z6 for stills with no discernible difference. I like having two SD card slots for constant backup, and the cost is very affordable. I use the Z6 for video, but for stills this is a great camera. Active D Lighting isn't as good as the older DSLRs, and picture profiles could use some tweaking, but overall I would recommend the Z5 as it's more than just a consumer camera and is good enough for some pro work.

Underdog Z5 proves itself worthy for a Pro

Nikon sells this as their bottom of the line Z body, which didn't instill confidence at first, but it is a clear winner. It is a powerhouse little camera that has the four things I was looking for; 1) Full frame sensor, 2) Compact body for travel, 3) Awesome picture quality, 4) Easy as pie to use. The full frame sensor delivers impeccable quality photos. My work cameras are the Nikon D850 and D800 bodies, so I'm used to not compromising image quality. I'm a professional photographer who wanted a compact camera for travel and didn't need their top of the line Z bodies. I'm most impressed with getting a full frame sensor into a compact body. Way to go man, I've been waiting for this combination since digital photography arrived and here it is finally. There is only one way to get higher quality photographs and that is with a full frame sensor. The body is compact enough to fit in a small laptop bag or a well built waist pack. Having a small camera body was everything for me and in order for it to qualify as a small travel camera, it also needed a compact lens. Many of the lenses for mirrorless cameras are ridiculously large. This 24-50 zoom is nearly like one of the classic pancake lenses and my all-time focal length is 35mm. I've just been leaving the focal length at 35mm because that is the prime lens I use the most when I travel. The ISO can go high if need be so I no longer need the faster lenses. Even the f/6.3 lens is no problem these days. I'm happy with the lens sharpness and if I need critical sharpness I just stop it down to f/8 and there we go. This is a nearly perfect travel camera. The electronic viewfinder was a little quirky to get used to at first, but once you start using it, it makes sense. It is nice and bright even in bright sunlight. Compared to my D850 it is very quiet, another big plus for travel photography. Because the ISO can go high at dusk, I hardy need a tripod anymore (mostly), another plus for travel shooting. I was a little worried about the overall image quality and I did a number of tests when I first got the camera, including checking the sharpness with the 24-50 zoom. The lens does have a tiny bit of softness at the corners at 24mm, but it is so slight that it is not even a worry. Again, stopping down to f/8 generally sharpens it right up. The sensor is great in low light and renders an impressive dynamic range. Certainly everything I need for a travel camera. There are many instances when my snapshotting photos become good enough for professional use. Other compact cameras often can't do that and fall short. Ease of use is important. I need to capture fast action with a travel camera and the frame speed is impressive. I don't need the speed of my pro cameras, but it is good to be able to have a fairly fast frame rate. I do like the dial on top of the body for for faster use with the command dials. It makes shooting more intuitive without having to fuss with the controls. I still use the exposure compensation control a lot for tricky lighting and the button placement is brilliant and you can use it without taking your eye away from the viewfinder. The dual memory card slots are useful and I've found myself using them more than I'd first expected. The rear LCD screen is nice and bright and I find myself using it the most for low angle shots when the camera needs to be near the ground. It's great and you can do fast compositions without having to strain yourself. I've had this camera for a month and couldn't be happier. There are times when I don't want to bring along my big cameras but still need a high quality camera that is small and easy to put in a small bag. It is a fine camera.
