A Look at the Nikon Z fc Mirrorless Camera

The Nikon Z fc is not the company's first attempt at making a retro-inspired modern camera, but it seems like they have gotten a lot more right this time around than with the Df, which received mixed reviews. This great video review takes a look at the new camera and the sort of performance you can expect from it in real-world usage. 

Coming to you from Photo Genius, this excellent video review takes a look at the Nikon Z fc mirrorless camera. With a small size, affordable price, and retro design that is inspired by iconic cameras like the FM2, the Z fc looks like a potentially popular option, particularly given the popularity of cameras like those in Fujifilm's X series. On the inside, the Z fc offers features like 4K video and an 11 fps burst rate. Despite those features, it is priced below $1,000, making it an easy entry point into Nikon's mirrorless system that leaves room to grow or a second body for any pro who needs a backup or who might want an APS-C sensor for extra reach. Check out the video above for the full rundown on the camera. And if you would like to read more about the Nikon Z fc, check out our full review here.

Fuji at same price has proven 26mp sensor, dozens of lenses, and in body stab

It also has its unique film simulator

Retro is overrated

Fuji totally deserves their APS-C success.

I love my Z50 but I also have a Z6 which gives me that extra buzz in low light situations. And I have an odd assortment of new and old Nikon lenses. So the Z mount strategy has worked well for me.

As for the retro aspect, obviously it's a matter of taste. Personally I find it very cool.

It's ok if the market "segments". We don't need the camera companies all doing the same thing.

Yet it is funny how this camera, more than any, really make FujiFilm users feel the need to come out and defend their cameras of choice.

But the real question is, do the fact that Nikon has introduced the Z fc hamper your enjoyment of your Fuji camera in any way?

Yes, I just took one with the 28mm f2.8 lens, I was a DF user, so yes I need one and when the FX version will come, than I’ll take one from that as well…
