Nikon Z30 review

 

Nikon chases the burgeoning content creator market with a consumer-level mirrorless camera that aims to put video first

Attention to detail ; Responsive performance ; Robust construction ; Great ecosystem ; Affordable ; Easy to use

Can get expensive with kits and extras ; No eye-level viewfinder or integral flash ; Pretty large

What’s welcome here is the usual Nikon attention to detail, responsive performance and robust construction, with access to a very wide, well-supported system of lenses and accessories, not only from Nikon but third party manufacturers too. It's the...

Nikon Z30 review

 

The Nikon Z30 is a video-centric mirrorless camera for beginners

Intuitive ergonomics ; Very good value and decent kit options ; 4K video with no crop ; Reliable connectivity

Still not enough lenses ; Lacks image stabilization ; No headphone jack

The Nikon Z30 is the third APS-C mirrorless camera after the Nikon Z50 and Nikon Z fc. All three cameras have a similar build quality and the same photo and video recording capabilities, but each comes with its own design flavor. The Z30 is the...

Nikon Z 30 Review

 

Slimline mirrorless form factor ; Articulating touch LCD ; Face and eye detection autofocus for video ; 4K30 and 1080p60 recording ; Clear stereo audio with built-in mic ; Capable as a photo camera ; Works as a webcam

Sensor stabilization is missed ; No headphone jack ; Omits EVF ; 8-bit video profile

The Nikon Z 30 puts video features at the forefront, so vloggers working without a support crew can bring the bokeh look to videos as well as change lenses. We especially like its audio quality, but wish it had a stabilized sensor.

Nikon Z 30 camera review: A photographer's perspective

 

The compact mirrorless camera is marketed as a vlogger's dream -- but its still photos are just as good.

Portability is ideal for content creators ; Flip-out display for better framing ; Generous functions and settings

Plasticky build quality ; No viewfinder ; Image stabilization is not the best

After much testing, I can see why the Nikon Z 30 would suit vloggers and content creators. The device has been designed with ease of use as a top priority, and portability is also at the forefront. I wouldn't classify the Nikon Z 30 as a breakthrough...

Nikon Z30 Review

 

The new Z30 is Nikon's third APS-C cropped-sensor mirrorless camera, following in the footsteps of the Z50 and Z fc models. This time around, though, it's primarily targeted at vloggers and content creators. Find out what it has to offer by reading our...

Nikon Z 30 review

 

The Nikon Z 30 cuts size, weight and cost to a minimum, but it cuts a few corners along the way, especially for shooting stills.

For stills photography, the Nikon Z 30 comes up short. The lack of a viewfinder certainly makes it physically short and nicely compact but trying to compose images accurately on the rear screen can be a real challenge, especially when the sun glaring...

Nikon Z30 review: compact mirrorless is a dream for vloggers

 

The Nikon Z30 is perfect for vloggers who want a compact, lightweight option to be able to capture their daily lives

4K video ; Nice to handle ; Lightweight

No headphone jack ; No image stabilisation ; No viewfinder

The Nikon Z30 is aimed at content creators who want a decent-quality camera at a reasonable price point. This camera is capable of 4K 30p recording without cropping, works exceptionally well in low light and has strong auto-focus performance. The Nikon...

Nikon’s Z30 Vlogging Camera Is a Great Mirrorless Starter Pick

 

Nikon has released a fairly capable, tiny run-and-gun 4K vlogging camera with the Z30. Just don't expect it to handle pro work.
