What sets the Z fc apart is the 20.9MP DX CMOS sensor paired with the EXPEED 6 engine and the light-gatheringadvantages of the wider Z mount. Together, they give you clean, professional looking videos and stills, even in low light.
The Z fc is designed around Nikon’s revolutionary Z mount, the widest lens mount of any comparable camera system. A wider mount means more light, and more light means more of everything good—sharpness, contrast, accurate focus, low-light performance and image quality.
Take a moment and appreciate the world around you from fresh perspectives. The Z fc employs a 3.0-in Vari-angle monitor—the first in a Z series camera. Effortlessly shoot vertical shots from low angles.
The Z fc’s sensor is practically covered in focus points—87% coverage to be precise. That means wherever your subject is within the frame, a focus point is locked on. Compose the way you want.
Nikon’s intelligent Eye-Detection AF for video and stills quickly locks onto eyes—humans, dogs or cats—and follows them. This is especially useful when you can’t be behind the camera, for first-person videos and selfies.
ISO sensitivity goes all the way up to ISO 51,200 (expandable to ISO 204,800) with superb sharpness, detail and clarity. Create after hours and in less-than-ideal lighting.
Add uniqueness to your videos and stills with 20 Creative Picture Controls, all visible in real-time while you shoot through the viewfinder or Vari-angle display. Now, filters are part of the vision rather than an afterthought.
Comprehensive video, vlogging and streaming capabilities. Record 4K Ultra HD video at 30p, 25p or 24p full pixel readout with no cropping. Combined with NIKKOR Z lenses, you’ll maximize the sensor’s resolution and produce videos with lifelike depth and clarity.
The Z fc’s Vari-angle display can face forward for easier vlogging and first-person recording. This activates self-portrait mode, bringing key camera controls to the monitor so you can conveniently touch and tap adjustments.
Look your absolute best with the Z fc and a NIKKOR Z lens. Simply connect the camera to your computer with a USB Type-C cable (sold separately)—it provides power too—and compatible software like the free Nikon Webcam Utility. You’ll get sharpness, clarity and flattering depth of field unlike a typical webcam.
The whole time you’re recording, the autofocus system is working, making precise adjustments to keep your subject in sharp focus. This means you can be the one in front of the camera, even streaming live, with total confidence in your footage.
Capture high quality sound in-camera using the Z fc’s built-instereo mic or a dedicated third-party external mic. The 3.5mm stereo mini-pin jack provides plug-in power. Monitor your audio levels on-screen, including a clipping indicator, and make gain adjustments in real-time.
Nikon’s SnapBridge is the only smartphone connection system that I’ve ever been able to get to transfer images consistently.
Pair your smart device to the Z fc from the SnapBridge app once, and your phone and camera are always connected. You can transfer videos and stills manually or set the app to automatically import every still you take, then edit and post your work with your favorite phone apps.
When you can’t be behind the camera, pull out your compatible smartphone and use it to control the Z fc. See what the camera sees, change camera settings like aperture and shutter speed, then take the video or still.
SnapBridge wirelessly updates the Z fc’s firmware to the latest and greatest. When paired, the app will notify you of any updates and send the firmware directly to your camera’s memory card for a quick and easy—and totally wireless—install.
Tough, lightweight magnesium alloy frame protects the Z fc against life.
When you don’t need the touchscreen LCD, it’s safely protected within the camera.
