“We wanted to pay homage to our cherished history of iconic cameras and to expand our lineup with the latest digital innovations. A simple and intuitive accessory, the Z fc is a step up to support photography lovers as they slow down and take in life’s simple moments,” said John Young, General Manager, Marketing, Nikon Asia.
It’s all in the details
Revisiting an icon, the Z fc takes inspiration from the classic Nikon FM2 SLR, incorporating 80s vintage nuances with modern mechanisms that are highly reliable and built to last. Exuding sophistication in its craftsmanship, experience the entirety of this camera with its luxurious black textured leather material and matte silver body. Embrace the timeless beauty of the several inherited design elements, including the “Nikon” engraving, the classic control dials and shutter buttons, and the circular eyepiece.
Change the body colour of the Z fc with customisable leather texture materials available in seven colours – black, white, sand beige, amber brown, natural grey, coral pink, and mint green. The ability to express individuality in the newly transformed camera is where quintessential design meets the latest digital technology offerings, fully embodying the rich legacy of Nikon’s iconic cameras.
All seven colours will be available to purchase in Australia as well as the option to have the colour changed at a Nikon Australia Authorised Service Centre for a small fee.
Sophisticated control for the perfect shot
Taking it to a new level, the Z fc comes with intuitive and tactile controls that allow you to seize and capture fleeting moments. Equipped with dedicated dials for the ISO, shutter speed, and exposure compensation, you can easily adjust the desired settings to achieve a high-quality user experience when delving into different types of photography.
Capturing iconic moments is made possible with the camera’s ISO sensitivity of up to 51200, achieving clear and sharp renderings of textured images. The in-built optical Vibration Reduction (VR) can be fully optimised with the NIKKOR Z DX 16-50mm f/3.5-6.3 VR for high-image quality.
Documenting moments through video has never been easier, with the Z fc’s 4K UHD capabilities utilising the full DX-based image sensor width and slow-motion movie setting, with a range of image dimensions and frame rates. The Z fc allows you to capture every inch and detail of the moment with its 7.5cm (3-inch) vari-angle TFT LCD display monitor that is touch-operational and has AF-F (full-time AF) that tracks subjects even when taking self-portraits.
When the monitor is turned to the front, users can seamlessly transition automatically to self-portrait mode and explore different angles to express themselves in both stills and movies. Additionally, when switched on, the camera supports USB power delivery and USB charging.
Weighing in at approximately 390g, the compact and sleek camera is the perfect companion to capture every moment, day to night, one to another. Whether it’s a long-awaited scenic road trip or an intimate slice of everyday life, the Z fc is there to capture your iconic moments.
Expression in its purest form
For the first time in a Nikon Z Series camera, the Z fc supports exposure compensation during AUTO mode, allowing you to achieve the desired expression by increasing brightness to enhance silhouettes.
There is more room for limitless expression with over 20 Creative Picture Control effects to create imagery that reflects your desired aesthetic or mood. Simply use the display viewfinder to quickly preview images and apply your favourite pre-set.
Capture the raw and real-time emotions in a snap with the Eye-Detection AF and Animal Eye-Detection AF. Lock onto moving subjects and deliver precise, high-quality imagery that brings a beautiful moment to life with genuine emotion. Not limited to just stills, this feature is also applicable during movie recording.
Stay connected in just one-click
The Z fc is technology-friendly and supported by a suite of software tools that allows you to transfer images and videos to a smart device quickly and seamlessly.
Enjoy the latest version of SnapBridge (ver. 2.8) for improved ease of use and convenience, with the new ability to use smartphone screen mirroring capabilities for remote shooting. The new user interface also supports two automatic connection modes. First, the foreground mode connects with the camera only when the application is activated, reducing camera battery consumption; or background mode that features a constant connection, allowing automatic transfer of images even when the application is not activated.
The camera is also compatible with Webcam Utility for next level live-streaming that offers incredible clarity and flattering depth of field.
Made for compactness
Users will be spoilt for choice with the NIKKOR Z DX 16-50mm f/3.5-6.3 VR in a new silver variant or with the special edition NIKKOR Z 28mm f/2.8 (SE) that completes the kit.
