Nikon's Z50 is official: the company's most affordable mirrorless camera yet

Should the Nikon Z6 or Z7 mirrorless cameras be too big a jump for you, the new Z 50 might prove a better option for those wanting to step up their photography.

Nikon has also introduced the first two Z Series DX lenses alongside the Z 50: the Z DX 16-50mm f/3.5-6.3 VR and the Z DX 50-250mm f/4.5-6.3 VR.

The Nikon Z50 comes with a 20.9-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor with Nikon DX-format, hybrid-AF autofocus and Eye-AF.

This week, Nikon has announced a new model for its Z range, adopting the same type of sensor found in those cameras, an APS-C sensor.

Meanwhile, the company also shared the latest roadmap for upcoming Z-mount lenses, with a 70-200mm f/2.8 and 100-400mm lens in the works.

Isn't it small! The Z 50 itself is very compact, but the 16-50mm pancake lens is what really makes this camera portable. Even when the distance between the subject and the background are insufficient, the new 58mm Noct lens can still capture sharp images with lovely background blur due to the reproduction of an extremely sharp focus plane and vast shallow depth of field. The new lenses offer in-lens optical Vibration Reduction (VR) technology with camera shake compensation equivalent to 4.5 stops and 5.0 stops respectively.

Travel light: Lens is super compact when retracted and weighs 405 grams.

Nikon Z50 20.9-megapixel mirrorless camera is available for a price of almost Rs 61,200 body only from November.

The companion lenses add even more dimensions to the shooting experience with the Z mount's 16mm focal distance flange. These zoom lenses focus quickly, quietly, and steadily, making them as great for video as they are for stills.

It comes with a 207-point phase-detect autofocus system, complete with AI powered eye-detection. However, with the new Noct lens the causes of sagittal coma flare are eliminated across the entire frame with point light sources being reproduced as tack-sharp point images even at the peripheries, for clear and crisp night landscapes and astronomical shots. The face and eye-detect system seemed almost lag free, and kept up with subjects even when they turned around or momentarily went out of view. 4K time-lapse sequences can be created in-camera.
