The Technical Details Behind The Nikon Z 50 Camera and Lens
The Nikon Z50 is an APS-C camera belonging to the first generation of Z-mount DX mirrorless cameras. It boasts a 20.9 MP DX sensor, a superior phase-detection AF system and a continuous shooting speed of 11 fps. You can record high-quality 4K video up to 30 fps and Full HD slow-motion videos at 120 fps.
The Z50 comes with a Nikon Z DX 16-50mm f/3.5-6.3 VR and a long-ranging Nikon NIKKOR Z DX 50-250mm f/4.5-6.3 VR lens. The 16-50mm lens is ideal for capturing wide angles and portrait shots, while the zoom lens is great for working with distant subjects. The optical design of both the lenses uses one extra-low dispersion element to avoid chromatic aberrations and colour fringing to achieve better colours and clarity.

- Uses a 2.36M-dot OLED viewfinder and a 3.2” touch-sensitive rear screen.
- Efficient face/eye detection AF system.
Shooting And Focusing Performance
The Z50 utilises an autofocus system in which you can select the AF area size for the camera to decide on a subject automatically. The AF acquisition mode lets you pinpoint a specific AF area, while the continuous AF mode dynamically changes the AF areas to track a moving subject successfully. The AF also includes a face/eye detection system. The camera will prioritise the face or eyes of your subjects.
The 16-50 mm and 50-250mm lens comes with Vibration Reduction image stabilisation that can reduce the appearance of camera movement by up to 4.5 and 5 stops for better handheld performance. A programmable control ring has been provided in both lenses to customise several camera and exposure settings for an intuitive workflow.
Quality And Reliability
The Z50 has a robust magnesium alloy construction that lends a compact build to the camera. It sports a 2.36M-dot OLED viewfinder and a 3.2” touch-sensitive rear screen that folds up by 90 degrees. Twin control dials have been provided that let you effortlessly configure important exposure settings. A small switch has been included beside the mode dial that enables you to quickly toggle between still and video modes.
The 50-250mm lens includes one extra-low dispersion element to combat chromatic aberrations and colour fringing, thereby achieving accurate colours. The super integrated coating found on both the lenses lets you work under strong lighting conditions by suppressing ghosting and flaring. A specialised electromagnetic aperture mechanism in the zoom lens ensures higher exposure control stability, which can be of benefit when you are working with fast shooting rates.
