Recently, the digital camera industry has been buzzing with retro style. Nikon also used the classic FM2 SLR in the 80s as a design idea, and brought the first Z mount APS-C camera since the Z50 in 2019, named “Z FC”. Its main selling point is to provide exclusive shutter, exposure compensation, and ISO dial, and hope that Z FC’s more “fashionable” design can impress young people.

Inside, it seems to be similar to the Z50. Both use a 20.9MP photoreceptor and Expeed 6 image processor, bring 11fps AE/AF continuous shooting speed, and provide functions such as object, face and eye tracking focus. However, Z FC additionally brings full-time eye tracking and focus during video shooting, and can use full-sensor sampling, and the screen is upgraded to a flip-type OLED, making it particularly suitable as a vlogger for self-portraits Model. In addition, its interface has also been upgraded to USB-C, allowing it to have faster transmission and charging speeds. Other specifications include an electronic viewfinder with 2.36 million points, a single SD card slot, and microphone input (but no headphone output) And so on, and the official data of its EN-EL25 battery can provide 300 photos.
