Nikon has announced a new camera body in its Z series Mirrorless range. The Nikon Z5 is a full frame 24.3 megapixel camera with two SD card slots for more shots or for a secure backup on important shoots. The Nikon Z5 is positioned below the Z6 and Z7 in the Z series lineup, but it is a powerful camera, and an ideal first full-frame body.

Nikon Z5

Nikon has put the most important mirrorless technologies in this small, light, but tough, camera body. The 24.3 megapixel CMOS sensor has ample resolution for stills and video recording up to 4K. Here are the features in detail.


Five Axis VR CMOS Sensor

The full-frame 24.3 megapixel CMOS sensor in the Nikon Z5 is mounted on a 5-axis VR system for in body image stabilisation. With any Nikkor Z lens your stills stay sharp and your video will stay steady. The sensor has an ISO range of 100-51,200 to cope with any lighting conditions, with excellent low-noise performance at higher ISO levels.

Small, Light, Solid

To keep out dust and moisture, the Z5 has a magnesium alloy body with weather sealing around seams, moving dials and buttons. The body is compact and weighs only 680g with the battery. The Nikkor Z 24-50mm f4-6.3 kit lens that comes with the camera is the smallest, lightest full frame zoom available on the market. It is admittedly not the brightest lens, however it is a handy wide to standard zoom that will perform well in good shooting conditions. The body has sensor stabilization which will help produce steadier shots at longer shutter speeds which may be needed with a smaller aperture lens.

Ultra-Sharp AF

The Z5 focus system has 273 AF points on the imaging sensor and includes Eye-Detect AF and Animal-Detect AF focus modes to lock on to a wide range of subjects. The Nikon AF algorithm will lock on to your subject quickly and track moving subjects for crisp action shots.

Dual SD card slots

Record onto fast UHS II SD memory cards and easily shoot to one with a backup saved to the second card. Or use one card for stills and a higher capacity card for video to make sure you never run out of space.

Best in class EVF

The electronic viewfinder in the Nikon Z5 has a 3690k-dot display which shows exposure, ISO and white balance settings in real-time.
