Nikon Z 50 Mirrorless Camera Body Only

Nikon DX mirrorless. Where the magic happens.

Capture the beauty that makes you stop with the mirrorless camera that feels at home in your hands. Bold low-light colours. A familiar pose from an unexpected angle. Shadow play when the sun is high. The light and agile Nikon Z 50 mirrorless camera delivers brilliant photos and stunning movies. It’s fast, powerful, and easy to use.

The superb image quality of the Nikon Z 50 will do justice to the way you see the world. The wide Nikon Z mount lets the camera’s large 20.9 MP DX-format sensor capture more light across the frame. And with more light, comes more detail. Day or night, colours in your photos and movies are brighter. The depth is deeper. And sharpness is spectacular.

  • 11 FPS

Stay sharp. However you frame it

Perfectly focused photos and 4K movies are yours to create. The Hybrid-AF (autofocus) system is fast, precise, and silky smooth. On-sensor AF points cover 90 % of the frame (approx.), horizontally and vertically, for superb edge-to-edge sharpness. Subjects snap into focus whether they’re dead centre, off to the side, or on the move.

Brilliant when the sun goes down

Shoot freely day or night, thanks to an automatic light-sensitivity range of 100–51200 ISO and low-light AF. From 3am city scenes to low-light portraits, you’ll catch more detail in the dark than ever before.

Great with people

Candid portraits just got better. Intelligent Eye-Detection AF automatically focuses on your subject’s eyes, whether they’re alone or a face in a crowd. Focus stays sharp even if your subject moves.

Always discreet, never shy

Your Nikon Z 50 focuses quietly and has a silent photography mode. So, when friends start asking you to ‘bring your camera’ to their wedding, you can capture moments without disturbing the moment.

Timing is everything. Press and hold to experience 11 fps

If you can see it, you can catch it. Up to 11 fps continuous shooting with autofocus and auto exposure means you’ll get the shots others might miss.

Your kind of movies

Cinematic is easy with your Nikon Z 50. You can record 4K/UHD movies at 30p, and shoot slow-motion footage in Full HD. With no crop-factor limitations, you get to take advantage of the full width of the camera’s large DX-format sensor. You can also capture still frames while filming, and create dramatic 4K time-lapse sequences in-camera.

See clearly

The ultra-sharp electronic viewfinder (EVF) lets you see everything clearly, whether you’re shooting stills or video. The EVF can display a natural image, similar to that of a DSLR optical viewfinder. Or you can view images as they’ll look with settings applied. The view stays smooth and steady, even when you zoom in to confirm focus.

All the places you go

The Nikon Z 50 is ready to shoot the moment something catches your eye, and there’s a pop-up flash for extra light. The lightweight body is easy to carry and boasts a strong magnesium-alloy top and front.

Your kind of angle

The large, high-resolution LCD monitor features smartphone-style touch controls and you can tilt it up or down. Whether you’re shooting video or self-portraits, your angles have never looked so good.

Your kind of flair

There are 20 in-camera creative effects for photos and video, and you can add your own twist to all of them. Simply adjust the intensity when previewing the effect to enjoy results that are unique to you.

At home in your hands

Once you curve your fingers around this camera’s deep grip and start shooting, you won’t want to put it down. Thoughtfully placed buttons and touchscreen controls make operation a breeze, and the clear, simple DSLR-style menu system is easy to master. Whether you’re new to Nikon, or just new to Nikon mirrorless, there are no steep learning curves here.

Get Connected

Fast Wi-Fi® and Bluetooth® connections let you send photos and movies to any device for storage or sharing. Nikon’s SnapBridge app makes it easy to share JPEGs and movies on the go, or shoot stills and video remotely.

Lenses to Adore

NIKKOR Z lenses are made to shoot photos and movies. Fast, bright, and small, your Nikon Z camera is compatible with them all. If you’ve got F-mount NIKKOR DSLR lenses, the optional FTZ Mount Adapter lets you use them too.

A System to Love

Whether you want to shoot photos or movies, a world of possibilities awaits. Your Nikon Z 50 connects seamlessly to a host of Nikon accessories, including remote camera controls, DSLR Speedlights, microphones, and more.

Customer Reviews

By GideonFraser on 19th August 2021
"Castle Cameras have really helped me over the years, and now - in difficult circumstances - provided exactly the kit I wanted, when I wanted it. The Nikon Z50 (for those not familiar with it) is an outstanding little camera, together with the quite excellent 50-250 telephoto zoom (at a fantastic price point) makes for a compelling budget package. The foxes in my back garden have never looked so good! Thank you again to Hugh and his team - I will be back soon."
