Catching Inspiration When It Strikes
Inspiration can be fleeting and sometimes it comes in a form that transcends words.

With the Nikon Z 5, capture stills and videos beautifully in lowlight scenes and render details sharply even with handheld shooting, camera shake is accurately detected and compensated to provide optimal effect with its 5-axis in-camera Vibration Reduction (VR) of up to 5.0 stops. Get to choose between two VR mode options to meet your shooting needs: NORMAL mode when you’re looking to capture still subjects and SPORT mode for moving subjects. In addition, the VR unit is designed with a lock structure feature to prevent the image sensor from damage caused by shaking.
Featuring a 273-point hybrid autofocus (AF) system that automatically changes
between focal-plane phase-detection AF, fast and accurate focusing on subjects is made possible. For the pet owners and lovers, the Animal-Detection AF ensures you have one less thing to worry about with the occasionally fussy furry friends as the automated focusing helps to keep the shots in clarity, and a manual selection of the eye to focus is available as well. When it comes to portraiture or candid captures of family and friends, or even model subjects, the Eye-Detection AF comes in handy even in continuous tracking - AF-C mode, and confirmation of detection is available both on the electronic viewfinder and the touch screen monitor that features approximately 1040 dot resolution.
Clarity and details of creations are rendered to its best depiction with the NIKKOR Z lenses’ performance to reproduce dynamic expressions, beautiful smooth bokeh and sharp images even at wide apertures. For those seeking high-sensitivity image quality, especially at night festival scenes in the crowds where handheld shooting is required or even in light painting occasions, the Nikon Z 5 and its ISO of 51200 effectively reduces noise and realises high resolution at an advanced level.

For a more creative visual expression, creators can also play around with its simultaneous creation of time-lapse movie during interval-timer photography.
