Nikon Z5 Mirrorless Digital Camera (Body Only)


Nikon has announced the launch of its highly anticipated Nikon Z5 full-frame mirrorless camera. It’s hard to believe that the Nikon Z range of mirrorless cameras became available in late 2018. And yet here we are with this new and uncompromised Nikon Z5 entry.

The Nikon Z5 is the baby brother to the Nikon Z6 and Z7 – but in no way is it an under-performing member of the family. This new entry-level variant of the famous Z series brings pro-grade optics, power and performance within reach and in some cases, outperforms its older siblings. 


The Newest Member Of The Z Family


The new Nikon Z5 borrows heavily from the impressive Nikon Z6. Side-by-side, it’s hard to tell the two apart as their size and weight are near-identical. And thanks to an ultra-durable, pro-grade magnesium frame and sustainable assembly, this camera will last a lifetime. The weather-sealed body of the Z5 promises the same design and ergonomic considerations of the other Z mount cameras. Comfort and confidence are guaranteed!




  • 24.3MP – Full-frame CMOS Sensor
  • ISO range of 100 – 51200
  • Nikon’s Sensor-shift Image Stabilisation
  • 3.2” Tilting LCD Screen with 1,040K dots of resolution
  • Bright 3,690K dots of resolution electronic viewfinder
  • Fast 4.5 fps continuous shooting
  • 4K (UHD) video performance @ 3840 x 2160 – MPEG-4, H.264
  • Ultra-durable magnesium body 


Engineered For Optical Brilliance & Creativity


The Nikon Z5 drives a compelling argument for the latest generation of entry-level full-frame mirrorless cameras. The Z5 boasts a 24.3-megapixel CMOS image sensor and processor ensures reliability and excellence. The rear 3.2-inch screen is a TFT touch-sensitive LCD with a handy 170° viewing angle and an impressive 1,040K dots of resolution – this screen is big, bright and ensures responsive interaction. The screen maneuverability allows for creative applications in both stills and video output as you can shoot from varying angles and stances. The electronic viewfinder on the Nikon Z5 is a dazzling 0.5-inch OLED monitor with approximately 3690k-dots of resolution, 0.8x magnification and an eye sensor. 


Building Upon The Family Tradition


The Nikon Z5 steps up the pace from the Z6 with improved power management that can deliver up to 470 shots – impressive performance for a mirrorless camera. With the use of USB-C technology, its battery can be charged internally or via a power bank for those on the move. Further to this, the Z5 features dual ultra-fast UHS-II SD card slots ideal for sport or videography. The Nikon Z5 delivers a generational upgrade thanks to its new eye auto-focus and tracking technology. Tracking prowess also extends to the Animal-Detection AF, making it ideal for wildlife and pet lovers alike. On the subject of autofocus, it boasts 273-point hybrid autofocus that intuitively switches between focal-plane and phase-detection AF for super-fast focusing speeds. It delivers all of this while shooting at a respectable 4.5 fps in continuous mode. 

The Z5 provides for hand-held and lowlight performance through its ISO management and dual modes of 5-axis Vibration Reductions with up to 5 stops of gain. As for image quality, the Nikon shoots RAW (NEF) in 12 or 14 bit lossless compressed or compressed. As a result, you have a significant amount of image data to work within post-production to create outstanding detail-rich images. 


Nikon Z5 Superb Video Output


Creatives today demand that video output and performance match that of the photography capabilities of digital cameras. The Nikon Z5 answers this call and in fact, delivers high-quality videography output. It produces stunning 4K (UHD) video performance at a resolution 3840 x 2160 and video compression of MPEG-4, H.264 Advanced Video Coding. If you are looking to create something extra special, the Z5’s utilises a silent shutter mode to achieve smooth time-lapse movies every time. 


Accessories to Elevate Your Performance


Owning a state of the art full-frame mirrorless camera amounts to little if the lens line-up is lacking. Fortunately for Nikon Z5 owners, the number of native lenses available for the Z mount family is an impressive fifteen primes and zooms – with future additions on the horizon. And thanks to the in-body image stabilisation enjoyed with the Z5, all lenses reap the benefits too. 

Also, Nikon has announced the launch of a pair of new Nikon Teleconverters in the TC-1.4x and TC-2.0x. Regardless of your preferred genre, these Nikon Teleconverters optimise your access to distant subjects. Both are currently compatible with the Nikkor Z 70-200mm f/2.8 VR S – a win for telephoto lovers. Each is precision engineered with a robust build, dust and drip resistance and fluorine-coated front and rear elements.

What’s more, the use of the TC-1.4x and TC-2.0x have minimal impact on autofocus, stabilisation and most importantly results in the loss of only one to two stops of light. All of this without impacting the minimum focus distance. In practical terms, you don’t have to chase down the wildlife; they come to you. These exciting additions to the Z mount range multiply your available choices for creative photography. 


Final Thoughts


In summary, the new Nikon Z5 is a welcome addition to the Nikon Z family and one that will have enthusiast photographers excited and itching to get out and shoot. What’s more, it delivers an affordable and highly capable option for those shopping in the full-frame mirrorless market. The Nikon Z5 has been designed and engineered for optimal performance in both the photography and videography creative spaces. With a full suite of features and outputs, it leaves little to be desired. This launch, alongside the new Nikon TC-1.4x and TC-2.0x Teleconverters, demonstrates Nikon’s ability to evolve and hold its title as a profound creator of performance camera equipment.
