The new Z 5 is yet another exciting camera release in this otherwise bleak year. How good is it though?
2020 might be a year to forget in many regards, but we've been unexpectedly fortunate in the camera industry insofar as releases. Canon have been throwing desirable camera after desirable lens at us, Sony are poised for their new version of the a7S, and now Nikon are offering a mirrorless, full frame body for what would consider to be a steal, price wise.
At just $1,396 for the body only, you're getting a full frame mirrorless camera, that shoots 4K UHD, dual card slots, weather sealing, and various other perks. It really does combine many of the flagship features of the Z 6 and Z 7, with the addition of the dual card slots so many people wanted. The trade-off is significantly slower frames per second, but 4.5 fps is certainly nothing to turn your nose up.
I wrote recently about the worst value cameras currently on the market, but this could honestly be the best with so much for such a reasonable price. What do you think?
