Capture your iconic moments with the Zfc

In a small 390g body, the camera has a 20.9MP DX-format sensor, a 3-inch vari-angle display, and up to 4K/30p video capability. The Nikon Z fc is an ideal companion for young urbanists and photographers who frequently come across interesting surroundings or compelling moments that pique their interest while expressing their individuality.

This vintage design enables photographers to easily adjust to their desired settings and achieve the best quality of experiences when experimenting with different types of photography.

Excellent clarity in low light conditions with Vibration Reduction system

The camera includes an optical Vibration Reduction (VR) system.The camera also has an ISO sensitivity range of up to 51200, allowing the photographer to capture high-quality images in low-light conditions.

Extremely compact with sleek design

The compact and sleek camera, weighing approximately 390g, is ideal for users to take with them to capture every shutter opportunity from day to night, one moment to the next. Whether it's a well-deserved scenic road trip with your best friends or capturing a moment in time, the Z fc is there for you. Additionally, when switched on, the camera supports USB power delivery and USB charging.

Expression in its purest form

The Z fc includes exposure compensation in AUTO mode for the first time in a Nikon Z series camera, allowing users to create their desired expression by increasing brightness or enhancing silhouettes. Users have more freedom for unrestricted expression with over 20 Creative Picture Control effects, allowing them to produce images that express their aesthetics or mood with just a brief glance through the display viewfinder and a favourite pre-set that can be quickly applied.

Outstanding AF performance

With the Eye-Detection AF and Animal Eye-Detection AF*, you can capture the rawest and real-time emotions in a flash, locking onto moving subjects and producing precise, high-quality photography that truly brings all the emotions of that magnificent moment to life.

*Not limited to just stills, this feature is also applicable during movie recording.

Incredible video capabilities

The Nikon Z fc can record 4K UHD video as well as slow-motion movies in a variety of image sizes and frame rates. Documenting moments in videos has never been easier thanks to the addition of a touchscreen 3-inch vari-angle TFT LCD display monitor and AF-F (full-time AF) mode. Furthermore, users can experiment with different angles to express themselves in both stills and movies, with a seamless transition to self-portrait mode when the monitor is turned to the front.

Stay connected in just one-click

The new user interface also includes two automatic connection modes: foreground mode, which connects to the camera only when the application is active, saving battery life; and background mode, which maintains a constant connection and allows for automatic image transfer even when the application is not active. The camera is also compatible with Webcam Utility, which allows users to take their live streaming to the next level by providing excellent clarity and a flattering depth of field.
