The Z 30 is Nikon’s newest hybrid camera, which was announced on June 29. The maker primarily targets vloggers and videographers of all stripes searching for a gadget that is both small and powerful with this discrete case made to be swiftly unsheathed.
The Z 30 is intended for those who wish to put their smartphones aside and advance without having to deal with a bulky case that is challenging to hold. The best option for simple vlogging and utilizing Nikon’s expertise in lenses and accessories to lower creative barriers.
In addition to ensuring stunning slow-motion images in Full HD (1080p) 120 fps and time-lapses to enliven its videos, it can record in 4K UHD 30 fps. Despite being compact, the Z 30 does not sacrifice use comfort. Its strong grip guarantees a secure hold, and its customizable screen—important for producing high-quality videos—is set up to respond to the user’s finger and eye movements.
Cleverly, the self-portrait option, for instance, removes all content from the screen when it is facing forward to give the subject adequate space. However, an adaptable APS-C Nikon that is as effective in photography does not overlook the photo portion of its case. A 20.9 MP DX CMOS sensor is included with the Z 30.
It offers exposure correction in APS-C format from -5 to +5 IL and an ISO range of 100 to 51,200. In addition to Nikon’s standard modes (Auto, P, S, A, and M), there are three customizable modes. The Z 30 offers a 3.5 mm jack socket, a USB C port, and an HDMI output for connections. An SD or SDHC card can fit in one memory slot.
Finally, provided that an adapter is utilized, it may be used with any NIKKOR Z-mount or F-mount lenses. Beginning on July 14, the Nikon Z 30 will be sold for the suggested retail price of 799 euros for the naked body. Also available for 999.99 euros is a Z 30 Vlogger kit that includes the Nikkor Z DX 16-50mm f/3.5-6.3 VR lens, a tripod, a SmallRig lens hood, and the ML-L7 remote control.
