Additional Coverage on Nikon Z5 Camera

Here are the latest reviews, samples and hands-on videos of the Nikon Z5 full frame mirrorless cameras. Before head over to the details let’s make a quick recap of the Z5.

The Nikon Z5 is made in Thailand but the name of the sensor manufacturer and the sensor pixel pitch is confidential. Nikon Z5 uses a different sensor from the Z6 and Z7 and it is actually a mid-level FX-format model. This means Nikon still have a room for a real “entry-level camera i guess. The full-frame mirrorless camera that looks and handles a lot like the Z6, and offers a lot of the same features.

The Nikon Z5 (AmazonB&HAdorama) uses a 24MP CMOS sensor, paired with an Expeed 6 processor, but it is not the same BSI-CMOS chip that we’ve seen in the Z6. The Z5’s sensor is probably closely related to the last-generation sensors in the likes of the Nikon D750. Despite its entry-level positioning, the Z5 offers a minimum exposure time of 1/8000sec, which enables wide-aperture shooting in bright conditions.

Anyway enough of the features of Z5, let’s dive into additional coverage. Continue reading…
