The Nikon Z 5 is the company's entry-level full frame mirrorless model, and it offers all the benefits of the Z mount at a more affordable price. Does it hold up in practice despite its budget price? This great video review takes a look at how it performs.
Coming to you from Matt Irwin Photography, this video review takes a look at the Nikon Z 5 mirrorless camera. Despite being $1,396, the Z 5 offers all the advantages of the large Z mount and a modern full frame sensor, though of course, to get to that price, it does have tradeoffs in other areas. Its features include:
- 24.3-megapixel sensor
- ISO range of 100-51,200
- 273 AF points
- Continuous burst rate of 4.5 fps
- 4K video at up to 30 fps
- 3.6-million-dot OLED EVF
- 3.2-inch, 1.04-million-dot tilting rear touchscreen
- Wi-Fi and Bluetooth
- Magnesium alloy body with weather- and dust-sealing
- 5-axis sensor shift Vibration Reduction that offers up to five stops of compensation
- Dual UHS-II SD card slots
Altogether, the Z 5 certainly has some compromises in areas like action shooting and more advanced video, but on the other hand, it looks to be a balanced entry-level camera suitable as a first full frame body or a backup camera. Check out the video above for Irwin's full thoughts.
