I imagine the Nikon ZFc will probably be checked out in a number of methods. First, it is a courageous step for Nikon. The Nikon ZFc is smaller and lighter than the FM2 whereas it consists of climate resistance. After all, it’s additionally a nod to the Nikon Df. And to try this, they wanted to make use of an APS-C sensor. The truth is, it’s the identical sensor because the Z50. Then again, it’s onerous to not really feel like Nikon continues to shoot themselves within the foot. I, like a lot of you, wished a full-frame Nikon ZF digital camera. I truthfully assume that it’s nonetheless coming. And if that’s the case, Nikon ought to’ve put their finest foot ahead and launched that first. Nonetheless, there are some fairly cool issues in regards to the Nikon ZFc.

Why the Nikon ZFc Is APS-C, and Why There Has to Be a Full Body Model
The Nikon ZFc was made with an APS-C sensor in order that they might make lodging. First off, it is a tremendous small digital camera, from my understanding. And it’s utilizing the Z mount, which is fairly giant. For them to make it as small as doable, it looks as if because of this they went for an APS-C sensor. A minimum of, throughout our briefing with Nikon, that’s the message they appeared to convey. Personally talking, I feel that’s a little bit of hogwash: Nikon might’ve discovered a strategy to do it.
Nonetheless, I’m truly excited for the Nikon ZFc. It doesn’t look like a straight Fujifilm XT4 clone in any means. The ZFc is way more reasonably priced. However, it doesn’t boast picture stabilization. Plus, you possibly can’t apply the artistic profiles to the RAW recordsdata in Seize One (nonetheless a serious bummer).
So, the place does the Nikon ZFc excel?
- A number of cool, modern colours. I’m very enthusiastic about this. I like the concept of proudly owning a brown leatherette digital camera. Or a inexperienced one! Or a Pinkish one! I do know of us who’d fawn over the white one too!
- You should use Nikon’s good Z mount lenses. And hopefully, if Nikon makes the Nikon Zf, they’ll be capable to use them.
- Nikon has fairly stable climate sealing, however I’m unsure in regards to the new 28mm f2.8 because it received’t have a rubber ring on the again of the lens. However this lens is being pushed as a package choice, and it’s a full-frame lens.
- If this has the Z50’s sensor, then it is going to have the very best excessive ISO output of any APS-C sensor digital camera we’ve examined.
I nonetheless don’t know but. I’m hoping the autofocus is superb and that there’s no less than a full-frame choice coming earlier than the vacations of 2021. In that case, then it will likely be the one full-frame digital camera with retro aesthetics in the marketplace in addition to Leica M cameras. And fairly truthfully, that’s what we want greater than something.
I talked this over with a few of the employees. Hillary and Feroz each shoot Nikon. This seems like typical Nikon taking part in catch up. Their merchandise are good, however there’s no main purpose to purchase them over their opponents. I simply hope the ZFc is a special beast. And I additionally hope Nikon provides us a full-frame model very quickly.
