Nikon Z50 review


A fantastic APS-C mirrorless from Nikon, which is particularly ideal for travel

Great handling ; Attractively priced ; Excellent image quality

Tilting screen mechanism no good for tripod mounting ; Only a single UHS-I card slot ; No joystick for selecting AF points

Nikon Z50 review


Another mirrorless marvel from Nikon, but the mid-range competition is very hot.

Great handling Good value Impressive viewfinder and screen Great for travel SD cards more common than XQD

Tilt screen can’t be used with tripod No joystick for selecting AF points Just a single UHS-I card slot Limited native lens range

The Nikon Z50 is an excellent debut for the company in the crowded APS-C mirrorless market. It’s an ideal travel camera, and it’s also a great option for those looking to move from a Nikon DSLR, or who just love the brand. Offering great handling,...

Nikon Z50 initial review: Diversifying the Z mount for enthusiasts


The mirrorless version of the Nikon D7500, the Z50 - which uses Z mount lenses with a DX crop sensor (not full-frame) - is mirrorless for enthusiasts.

Bringing a revitalised approach into its mirrorless line-up, the Z50 represents the entry/mid-level entry point - complete with DX sensor and access to the Z mount lenses - in a package that's feature rich, easy to use, and capable beyond its years.

Z series expands so more beginners can join in

Excellent handling ; Good dynamic range ; Decent value

Not particularly high resolution

The Z50 is one of the best APS-C cameras out there offering a multitude of the pro-level features introduced on the Z6 and 7, at a fraction of the price.

Nikon Z50 review: A great handling camera with a mediocre sensor


The Z50 is a good debut for Nikon's Z mount APS-C mirrorless system. Unfortunately, it's entering a very competitive market and faces some strong competition, particularly Fujifilm's X-T30. While it handles great, the Z50 trails rivals in autofocus,...

Great handling ; compact size ; Good EVF ; Sharp 4K video ; Decent performance and autofocus

Lowest resolution in its category ; Single UHS-I card ; Limited lens choices

If this camera had come out even a year ago, it would have been near the top of my list. However, even though I love the Z50's handling and form factor, it's in second place or lower in every other category. The A6400 has better autofocus, the X-T30...

Nikon Z50 review


We've been testing the Nikon Z50 extensively and found a lot to like about it. However, the camera's biggest drawback is probably that it faces such well-established competition.

The Z50 is a really impressive addition to the mid-price camera sector. It brings a lot of

Nikon Z50 Review


Nikon have introduced their first APS-C, cropped-sensor mirrorless camera with the launch of the Z50, accompanied by two kit zoom lenses. Can the Z50 take on the likes of the well established Sony A6000-series and Canon EOS-M range, not to mention...

Last year, Nikon reinvented its mirrorless camera strategy from the ground up with the launch of two full-frame cameras sharing a brand-new lens mount, the Nikon Z6 and Z7. Some 14 months later, the company is now expanding that line in a new and more...
