Nikon unveils the Z50 Mirrorless Camera at its film festival Cinema Z
The newest addition to Nikon’s Z series was unveiled for the first time in the UAE where audience members got an exclusive hands-on experience with the new camera.
Nikon launched their latest mirrorless camera in their Z series – the Z50, the second edition of its Cinema Z film festival.
The Z50 is the smallest mirrorless camera from Nikon, designed around the Z mount. For a camera that can film at 4K Ultra HD 1080p, the Z50 is the smallest interchangeable lens DX-format camera ever. With the widest lens mount amongst any comparable camera system, Z50 can shoot stills up to ISO 51,200, making it great for low-light shots. Like the other cameras in the Z series, Z6 and Z7, Z50 too is powered by Nikon’s fast, EXPEED 6 image processing system. With built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, users can use Nikon’s SnapBridge app to make their phones an add-on for their Z50. You can now trim videos within the camera screen itself and provides support for Nikon’s existing lens lineup.
The event celebrating filmmakers and Videographers in the region saw a participation of over 250 filmmakers and photographers. All the 15 films nominated for the final stage of assessment in the three categories – student films, enthusiasts’ films, and pro films were filmed and produced entirely on the Nikon Z6 cameras. They were screened before the audience before announcing the winner in each category.
The Cinema Z film festival concluded the winners in each category were announced. Richard Galapate bagged the first place in the Student Category. Rameez Manamakkavil won first prize in the Enthusiast category and Midhun Mukhund won first prize in the Pro category.
We are also very proud to unveil our latest mirrorless camera, the Z50 amongst the people it is most suited for professionally. With this device, we have prioritised the needs of the blogging, vlogging and the entire online content creator community who need something small and simple that delivers sharp and uncompromised quality.” Narendra Menon, Managing Director, Nikon Middle East at the event.
“I am amazed to see the creativity, talent and passion of the participants through these brilliant films that were showcased tonight. It gives all of us at Nikon immense joy to see the spirit and art of videography and filmmaking flourish through the skills and minds of these young, talented creators as that was the very objective of this festival.”
