Expand your creative playground.
Your full frame journey begins with the Z 5. Simple yet sophisticated, compact yet powerful, the Z 5 is built to grow with you. It’s everything you’d expect from a full frame mirrorless camera—intense detail, expansive views, brilliant low light capabilities, 4K UHD video and more—plus all the innovative tools you need to push the limits of your creativity.
Your full frame mirrorless journey starts here.
The full picture.
Harness the entire view of expansive full frame lenses, and capture over 50% more image area than crop-sensor cameras. Z 5’s 24.3 MP full frame CMOS sensor produces intensively detailed images, lifelike 4K UHD video, ultra shallow depth-of-field and particularly clean low-light shots.
Right. In any light.
Creativity doesn’t wait for perfect lighting, so neither does Z 5
Its ISO sensitivity goes all the way up to ISO 51,200 (expandable to ISO 102,400) with superb sharpness, detail and clarity.
Keep shooting into the night, and bring a new mood to your style with the drama of low light.
Flash of genius.
Z 5 is compatible with Nikon’s Creative Lighting System. Fill in shadows, make subjects stand out, enhance natural light and add artistry with an optional external Nikon Speedlight flash.
You see it. You get it.
See your shot clearly through Z 5’s outstanding electronic viewfinder. It activates when you put your eye to it, offering a high-resolution glare-free view of how your shot will actually look—exposure, ISO, white balance and Picture Controls are all visible in realtime.
One mount for all.
Works with Z-Mount lenses.
Built around Nikon’s revolutionary Z mount, Z 5 is compatible with every cutting-edge NIKKOR Z lens, from the highly acclaimed NIKKOR Z 50mm f/1.8 S walkaround prime lens to the telephoto powerhouse NIKKOR Z 70-200mm f/2.8 VR S.
Works with F-Mount lenses.
Attach the optional Mount Adapter FTZ and extend full compatibility to over 90* F-Mount NIKKOR lenses: full frame fisheye lenses, macro lenses, fast primes, super telephoto zooms and everything in between.
*Approximately 360 classic F-Mount NIKKOR lenses can be used with varying compatibility.
Creativity. Built in.
Tweak. Shoot. Create.
Add another element of uniqueness and artistry to your photos and videos with 20 Creative Picture Controls, all visible in real time while you shoot, either through the viewfinder or on the tilting touchscreen display.
Multiply your vision.
Combine multiple photos into one radical creation. This can be done in real time by composing and combining consecutive shots, or it can be done later by previewing and combining shots you already took.
Shift your focus.
Focus Shift Shooting Mode automatically takes a series of images (up to 300) while advancing the focus position in each shot. These images can then be stacked* into a single image with surreal depth of field—great for shooting jewelry, products, landscapes and still subjects.
A bridge to the world.
If you shoot and share (who doesn’t?), you’ll love the convenience of Nikon’s highly rated SnapBridge app for iOS and Android™. It turns your compatible smartphone or tablet into a powerful accessory for Z 5, making it easier than ever to take, edit and share amazing photos.
Easy pairing. Easy sharing.
Connect to Z 5 from the SnapBridge app once, and your phone and camera are bonded for life. You can transfer photos manually, or set the app to automatically import every shot you take.
When you can’t be behind the camera, pull out your phone and use it to control Z 5. See what the camera sees, change camera settings like aperture and shutter speed, then take the photo or video.
As app-friendly as it gets.
Bring your Z 5 shots into your favorite photo and video apps for retouching, adding filters, editing, using in your stories and more—just like you would with your phone pictures.
Go wireless. PC or Mac.
With Z 5, you can transfer your images directly to a Mac or PC over Wi-Fi.* That means no card readers or USB cables needed to download your photos and videos.
*Requires free Wireless Transmitter Utility software
Get things moving.
Your entry to video.
Z 5 records beautiful videos. Shoot 4K Ultra HD footage using all the advantages of mirrorless technology and the Z system’s high-performance optics.
- 231 point phase-detect autofocus
- 4K UHD/30p
- Optical VR image stabilization and electronic Vibration Reduction
- Creative Picture Controls
- Focus Peaking
- Capture stills while recording
Timelapse made easy.
Z 5 makes it easy to create beautiful timelapse movies. Set up Z 5 on a tripod or stable surface, compose your shot, set your time interval and number of shots and let the camera do the rest. You can simultaneously create your timelapse movie in-camera and save the full resolution stills. And for longer shoots, power Z 5 with the optional USB Type C cable (UC-E25) and any compatible power bank
Built for the real world.
Z 5 is weather sealed against dust, dirt and moisture, especially around all moving parts and buttons. This is a camera designed to be used wherever your inspiration takes you.
The skeleton of Z 5 is forged from magnesium alloy, the same material used in Nikon’s professional cameras. It strikes an optimal balance of durability and lightness.
Tilt. Touch. Swipe. Pinch.
Navigate Z 5 as easily as you navigate your phone. A beautiful 3.2-inch 1040K-dot high resolution tilting touchscreen makes it easy to compose shots from interesting angles, preview effects, zoom into photos, change camera settings and more.
Z 5 is compatible with the optional MB-N10 multi-battery power pack for up to 1.8X (CIPA standard) more shooting time than using just the camera’s battery. It’s designed with the same extensive weather sealing as Z 5 and is a balanced, comfortable addition. You can even hot swap batteries mid-shooting without losing power.
Power. Charge. Transfer.
Provide constant power to Z 5 when recording video or shooting timelapse sequences, connect to a computer and even charge your battery with the optional USB Type C cable (UC-E25).*
*For optimal performance, an external power bank like Anker1 PowerCore+ 26800 mAh Portable Charger is recommended.
