Following the announcement of the Z7 and Z6 in 2018 and the APS-C Z50 last year, Nikon adds a new, entry-level full-frame mirrorless camera with the Z5. Unlike the Z6 and Z7 that uses a single XQD slot, the Z5 comes with two UHS-II SD card slots, which should be a relief for most photographers. Inside the Z5 is a 24-megapixel sensor without backside illumination, with 4K video recording incurring a 1.7x crop.
While it has a plastic build and no status display, the Z5 still has a 3.69 million-dot OLED viewfinder, 3.2-inch touchscreen display, Expeed 6 processor, and IBIS. As for other technical features, the Z5 has a 100-51200 base ISO, 4.5FPS continuous shooting, 273 AF points, and 30 seconds to 1/8000 shutter speed range.
