• 24.3 MP
The full-frame Nikon Z 5 is a brilliant opportunity to take your photos and movies to the next level. This mirrorless camera is built around Nikon’s Z mount—the widest full-frame lens mount there is. More light reaches the camera’s sensor, which gives you freedom to create with more detail, depth, and colour.
Visions in full frame
See your photos and videos take on a new level of detail no matter what you shoot. With its full-frame sensor, powerful EXPEED 6 processor, and ultra-sharp EVF, the Nikon Z 5 makes it easy to create in full frame. You can even crop photos without loss of detail—perfect for prints and websites.
Portraits with rich tonal gradations. Movies with ultra-shallow depth of field. The full-frame 24.3 MP CMOS sensor takes full advantage of the ultra-wide Z mount’s light-gathering capabilities to deliver superb results.
Shines in any light
Enjoy the freedom to adapt instantly to changing light thanks to the camera’s wide 100-51200 ISO range. No need to worry about noise: you get clean images and stunning dynamic range at both high and low ISO values.
Rock-steady Vibration Reduction
Powerful in-camera 5-axis VR image stabilisation lets you shoot at shutter speeds up to five stops slower than otherwise possible. No matter which NIKKOR Z lens you’re using, stills stay sharp and video is steady.
Small kit, big impact
The full-frame Nikon Z 5 is portable and highly capable—and so is the NIKKOR Z 24-50mm lens that’s included in the core Z 5 kit. This NIKKOR Z lens is the smallest, lightest full-frame zoom lens out there.¹ From intriguing wide angles to powerful portraits, it frees you to capture so much more—anywhere.
The 273-point Hybrid-AF (autofocus) system is fast, precise, and silky smooth. Subjects snap into focus and stay in focus no matter where they are in the frame.
Stunning shots of people, or dogs and cats. When shooting photos, you can lock on to your subject’s eye and keep the focus there—even if they’re moving.
Bright full-frame NIKKOR Z lenses
Experience depth and detail like never before. The Nikon Z 5 is compatible with all NIKKOR Z full-frame lenses and the lineup is constantly expanding. From ultra-wide-angle primes to telephoto zooms, these mirrorless lenses are faster, quieter, and sharper. Performance is superb for stills and movies.
Dual card slots
Dual slots accept fast UHS-II SD cards. Easily set the slots to use one card for shooting and one for backup. Or save movies to one and stills to another.
Tough but light
The tough yet lightweight magnesium alloy body is weather-sealed to keep dust and moisture out. Especially around all moving parts and buttons.
Nikon Z ergonomics
The body of this full-frame camera might be smaller, but it’s still easy to handle. The deep grip feels secure, and key controls are perfectly placed.
What you see in the high-definition 3690k-dot EVF is exactly what you’ll get. Key settings like exposure, ISO, and white balance are applied in real time.
You can charge (camera off) or power your Nikon Z 5 via USB². Convenient if you want to shoot for longer periods indoors or while recording a time-lapse video.
Tilt, touch, swipe
Find the angles on the tilting touchscreen and touch to focus. Easily swipe through photos and videos, and double-tap to see a 100 % view of the image area.
Make your stills and video yours. Nikon’s Picture Control system lets you apply unique creative filters and preview in real time in the EVF or on the monitor.
Smooth 4K movies
Turn ordinary moments cinematic. The Nikon Z 5 captures sharp 4K Ultra HD footage, and NIKKOR Z full-frame lenses enable beautiful depth of field. You can create eye-popping time-lapse movies in-camera and take stills while filming.
Built-in Wi-Fi® and Bluetooth® make sharing simple, and Nikon’s SnapBridge app can turn your phone into a powerful accessory. Easily transfer photos and videos, or turn your smart device into a remote monitor and controller.
