The new Nikon Z fc is a DX-format camera combining the latest mirrorless technology with classic design and functionality. With a look that’s inspired by the 1982 Nikon FM2 film SLR, it has analog controls and solid craftsmanship while offering the features of a modern camera with fully automatic or manual control.
Heritage-style features include leather-tone material over a satin-silver metal body, carved aluminum dials, and engraved lettering. The circular eyepiece is a throwback to the FM2 inspiration, but it houses a bright electronic viewfinder. At the back is a vari-angle touch screen LCD that flips out to face the user or up for waist-level shots.
The Nikon Z fc has a 20.9-megapixel CMOS sensor and Expeed 6 engine, a 209-point hybrid autofocus system, and rapid eye-detection AF for people and animals. It captures 4K UHD video in a variety of frame rates and has a selection of in-camera slow motion modes and built-in interval timer for creating 4K time-lapse movies.
In addition to the retro black and silver model, the Z fc will be available in six additional color options sold through nikonusa.com paired with the new silver Nikkor Z DX 16-50mm f/3.5-6.3 VR lens for $1,199.95. The Nikon Z fc black and silver body is $959.95 or $1,099.95 paired with the Nikkor Z DX 16-50mm lens.
