Nikon's Z FC mirrorless camera recalls the glory days of 35mm film

Nikon's Z-series APS–C (DX), mirrorless camera is going back to the glory days of 35mm film photography. It was designed to look like the iconic FM2 SLR of the 1980s. People looking at models from Fujifilm or other brands might like the retro design.The Z FC, unlike Fujifilm's models has a separate mode dial. This means you can't combine settings from the ISO shutter and aperture dials to set modes. The back has a dpad-type control, but it does not have a dedicated joystick like the Z50.NikonThe Z FC (probably the FC stands to represent film camera? It's not just about looks and handling. It shares Nikon's Z mount system, the 20.9-megapixel sensor and Expeed 6 processor.It also features an OLED (rather that LCD) display and a USB-C socket to transfer, charge and direct power. The device also features a 2.36M-dot electronic viewfinder and a single SD card slot. It also has a microphone port (no headphones port), and an EN-EL25 lithium battery that can deliver up to 300 shots per charge.NikonIt can also shoot at 11 frames per second, just like the Z50. It now allows you to combine eye-tracking and face tracking with a wide focal mode, expanding the area where the camera is looking for a subject.The Z FC can capture 4K video at oversampled resolutions using the entire sensor width. It also features full-time eye autofocus mode that allows you to shoot video while in focus. The ZFC is more versatile than the Z50 for video vlogging and selfie shooting thanks to its fully-articulating sensor.Nikon introduced the Nikkor Z28mm f/2.8 (SE) to best take advantage the compact size and retro look. It is small, has a wide field of view and can be used for street or tourist photography.The Z FC will arrive in July at 960 USD for the body, and $1,100 with DX 16-50mm F/3.5-6.3 VR lens. Or $1,200 with the 28mm F.2.8 SE lens. This lens will also be available separately at $300 but won't arrive until fall.
