CAPTURING POSSIBILITIES

Dive boldly into every photographic opportunity with the Z 5 right by your side and capture stories that will stand out from the rest. Weave through streets filled with diverse characters and tell their stories in the utmost clarity. Thanks to the Z 5’s high-sensitivity image processing, you’ll be able to enjoy the flexibility of shooting in low-light situations and capture the subtleties while effectively rendering all the textures and details. Its maximum standard sensitivity of ISO 512001 is made possible by a combination of Nikon’s full-frame sensor and EXPEED 6 image-processing engine, realising high resolution and low noise even at higher ISO levels.

So, feel inspired to express your stories wherever you go. The Z 5 has a 273-focus point2 hybrid autofocus (AF) system designed to capture great shots even at the periphery. When you’ve got a camera that covers a wide area of up to approx. 90% horizontally and vertically in the frame, you won’t have to worry about missing the main event. Be present in every moment with the help of its fast and accurate focal-plane phase-detection AF, which allows you to focus on living your life without having to pause and adjust the settings.

The Z 5’s Eye-Detection AF and Animal-Detection AF3 enables you to select which eye to focus on even during scenes with multiple eyes through viewfinder photography. Revel in the fact that this autofocus feature also extends into movies, with the ability of detecting animal faces even during movie recording, ensuring sharp focus on all moments in the wild or indoors with your pets

EXPAND YOUR FULL POTENTIAL

Find every one of these incredible features loaded in this powerful camera and amplify its functions with its kit lenses. All the kit lenses deliver superior optical performance and cover a highly versatile focal length range. For a compact, lightweight and affordable standard zoom lens option, the NIKKOR Z 24-50mm f/4-6.3 is ideal for creators passionate about creating and expressing themselves freely without limitations. Elevate your craft and upgrade to a S-Line standard zoom lens with high image quality through the NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/4 S. Its versatility allows you to be out and about all day, while its lightweight size makes it easy to put into your bag when you’re on the move.  Alternatively, all your needs can be met with just a single high-power zoom lens. Cover a wide variety of scenes – wide-angle, telephoto, and everything in between – with the impressive NIKKOR Z 24-200mm f/4-6.3 VR and never worry about having to switch between lenses while in the field.

FOCUS ON CREATING

When life gives you beautiful candid moments and memories to last a lifetime, the Z 5 will encapsulate every mood and atmosphere just as you experience them.

For the content creators on the go, convey the emotions of every scene by applying fine-tuned presets with Creative Picture Controls. With more than 20 available presets built into your camera, you’ll find all the settings you’ll need to enhance each and every mood. This can be applied to both stills and movies, giving you the flexibility to edit on the go, all within your camera. Expand your image-making options and make every preset uniquely yours with the customisable settings.

Aided by the Z 5, you will have all the tools you need to push your creative limits and do more than merely capturing a scene — you’ll be able to create on the spot. With smooth and steady filming available for any creative project, achieved by the image sensor shift 5-axis in-camera Vibration Reduction (VR)4, you’ll never again have to worry about footage not being usable during post-processing.

A myriad of effects can be added to your creative arsenal, affording you the flexibility to capture every scene just the way you want it. Its high-definition videos, and simultaneous generation of time-lapse movies during interval-timer photography, paves the way for outstanding movie performance.

Some of the most beautiful moments in life are captured in its most natural form, without disruption. The Z 5 is silent when discretion counts, making it perfect for candid photography and in videos too, enabling you to stay unnoticed thanks to the control ring of NIKKOR Z lenses, which has a quiet and smooth operation with reduced focus breathing5.

EFFORTLESS CONTROL

Enabling you to enjoy effortless control over your photography experiences, the Z 5’s superior operability makes it easy to expand your creative repertoire. With a high portability and compact design of approximately 870g with the NIKKOR Z 24-50mm f/4-6.3 kit lens, this is the grab and go camera you need to slip into a day pack or a purse for any adventure no matter how big or small.

Master the equipment at your fingertips with the help of its intuitive operability. Its touch-operable, tilting and approximately 1040k-dot and 3.2-inch monitor means you’ll be able to access the menu easily and quickly select which setting you need, allowing you to view your captures with ease. This level of convenience is further reinforced by the option to use a remote control through SnapBridge, giving you more flexibility in the field.

With more storage provided by double slots compatible with UHS-II SD cards, you can achieve a more effective and faster image recording without worrying about running out of space when you most need it. Don’t forget to share your favourite creations on your social media platforms, by using SnapBridge version 2.6 to instantly transfer photos and videos to your smart device6 — all in real time.

GO BEYOND

Whether you’re a creator seeking out a spontaneous urban expedition in the city, or one who is looking out for the next big nature adventure, the Z 5 supports you wherever you are. Always good to go, the camera has superior dust and drip-resistance and a highly durable and rugged body thanks to the employment of robust and lightweight magnesium alloy in the body’s front and top cover.  

Beyond just the sturdy exterior, the Z 5 comes with a new battery with USB charging capabilities that is perfect for long hours of shooting. In addition to the conventional USB charging, powering via a USB cable7 is supported even when the camera is turned on either when using the EH-7P AC Adapter, recommended mobile battery7 or the UC-E25 USB cable to a computer. Plus, its high definition electronic viewfinder with a 0.8x magnification ratio realises natural viewing, so you can concentrate fully on shooting, allowing you to go with the flow in every situation.

 

FEATURES

EYE-CATCHING BOKEH AND REMARKABLE LOW-LIGHT PERFORMANCE

A NEW LEVEL OF SHARPNESS AND DEPTH – FX-FORMAT IMAGE SENSOR AND NIKKOR LENSES

Lifelike realism with such fine detail and texture is only achievable with a full-frame sensor and great lenses – like the Z 5’s FX-format image sensor and exquisite NIKKOR lenses. This unique combination delivers a whole new level of sharpness anywhere in the frame and also provides naturally beautiful bokeh. You can also attain more faithful color reproduction – making your images more vibrant.

BEAUTIFUL PICTURES EVEN IN DARK SITUATIONS – ISO 100-51200

The Z 5 lets you take photos up to ISO 51200 (expandable up to 102400) that are more realistic in textures, details and colors – all with reduced noise. Stunning videos can be recorded up to ISO 25600. This is made possible by the advanced FX-format image sensor, powerful noise reduction provided by the EXPEED 6 image-processing engine, and the innovative Z mount which brings in a large volume of light.

SHARPNESS ACHIEVED IN DIVERSE MOMENTS

FAST FOCUSING EVEN ON EDGES – 273-POINT AF SYSTEM

Thanks to the 273-point*1 AF system, the Z 5 acquires subjects wherever they might be by covering approx. 90% of the frame both horizontally and vertically. It offers AF down to -3 EV*2 – comparable to the darkness of a night with a crescent moon. Touch AF and touch shutter are available during live view, allowing for fast and accurate operation.

*1 In photo mode, FX-format with single-point AF.
*2 In still photography at f/2.0, ISO 100, 20°C/68°F using AF-S.

INSTANTLY GRAB THE GAZE OF BOTH PEOPLE AND PETS – EYE-DETECTION AND ANIMAL-DETECTION AF

Nothing is more powerful than a portrait with a sharp focus on the subject’s eyes. With the Z 5’s Eye-Detection*1 and Animal-Detection AF*2, the camera automatically detects and tracks the eyes of both human subjects and pets, allowing you to capture impressive portraits without worrying about keeping focus. Furthermore, both of these functions let you select which particular eye to focus on as well. When shooting video, the camera will also continue to recognize their faces.

*1 Available in photo mode when using auto-area AF.
*2 When using auto-area AF.

BLUR-FREE IMAGES FOR ALL KINDS OF SCENES – POWERFUL, 5.0-STOP IN-CAMERA VR

The Z 5 features a powerful in-camera vibration reduction (VR) that lets you shoot handheld, even in dark situations, with reduced blur. It offers an effect equivalent to a shutter speed of approx. up to 5.0 stops* faster and compensation in five directions – yaw, pitch, roll, X and Y. During video recording, the in-camera VR can be combined with electronic VR for even steadier shots. A lock structure of VR unit is also installed to prevent the image sensor from damage caused by shaking while traveling.

* Based on CIPA Standards. This value is achieved when the NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/4 S is attached, with zoom set at the maximum telephoto position.

NIKKOR Z: A CLEAR DIFFERENCE

If you want to make great images, both quality and type of lens are extremely important. NIKKOR Z lenses deliver high resolution and beautiful bokeh within a compact system – thanks to the Z mount’s wide opening and short distance to the image sensor. This invites an abundant amount of light in and enables the lenses to operate efficiently. While the Z 5’s kit lenses provide inherently incredible image quality, you can also access the growing range of NIKKOR Z lenses – including the particularly superior S-Line models that will elevate the quality of your work to a whole new level. Continue to expand your creativity by exploring the various expressive options available with the ever-widening variety of NIKKOR Z lenses.

A LIGHTWEIGHT, COMPACT LENS WITH HIGH IMAGE QUALITY – NIKKOR Z 24-50MM F/4-6.3

Weighing approx. 195g/6.9 oz. in a 51-mm/2.1-in. long body, making it the lightest and shortest full-frame format zoom lens for interchangeable-lens mirrorless cameras*, the NIKKOR Z 24-50mm f/4-6.3 is a great companion for your daily use. The standard 24-50mm zoom range is useful and it’s easy to carry around while attached to the Z 5. This convenient combination makes it a breeze to shoot both stills and videos with sharpness and natural bokeh.

* Based on Nikon research as of July 21, 2020.

S-LINE LENS DELIVERING SUPERIOR RENDERING AND RESOLUTION – NIKKOR Z 24-70MM F/4 S

Having cleared especially strict standards in design principles and quality control, this S-Line lens realizes breakthrough image quality. The constant maximum aperture of f/4 throughout the convenient zoom range allows you to zoom in and out without aperture changes, thus helping to expand creative possibilities across diverse scenes and situations.

INCREDIBLY HIGH-POWER ZOOM LENS FOR DIVERSE SCENES – NIKKOR Z 24-200MM F/4-6.3 VR

This compact and lightweight 8.3× high-power zoom lens can cover truly varied scenes including immersive landscapes, captivating portraits, bringing distant subjects closer and everything in between. The lens offers vibration reduction (VR) with an effect equivalent to a shutter speed 5.0 stops* faster, allowing for blur-free shooting at all zoom ranges, even when shooting sunsets and nightscapes.

* Based on CIPA Standard. This value is achieved when attached to a FX-format camera with the camera’s VR function set to “NORMAL”, and when zoom is set to the maximum telephoto position.
