It’s your turn now

Capture your iconic moments with a camera that connects you to the aesthetic you’ve always loved. Inspired by the celebrated Nikon FM2 SLR film camera from the early ‘80s, the Z fc mirrorless camera boasts authentic design details that have been meticulously re-created: from the control dials to the round viewfinder and the classic Nikon logo engraved on the pentaprism.

Iconic—it’s in the family

The black textured body. The subtle grain in the silver metal of the frame. The Z fc mirrorless camera displays just as much character as the Nikon SLR film cameras of yesterday—and its special-edition NIKKOR Z lens looks the part too. It’s all about original design details from back then. And real creative power for today.

Control dials are laid out just as they were on the Nikon FM2 and each dial is machined from solid aluminium. The mechanisms actuate with incredible precision—you’ll feel the click. If you’ve used a Nikon SLR camera before, your muscle memory will kick right back in. If you haven’t, you’ll love the physicality of the dials.

Love the performance

Designed around the revolutionary Nikon Z mount, the Z fc mirrorless camera can capture your iconic moments in stunning quality. Thanks to the Z mount, the large 20.9 MP DX-format sensor captures more light. And more light means more of everything good—sharpness, contrast, focusing speed, and low-light performance.

Built for today

The Z fc might look like it just stepped out of the ‘80s, but the robust magnesium-alloy chassis ensures this mirrorless camera is ready for today. Sturdy in every way, the body is also lightweight and easy to carry around. Hang it from your shoulder and prepare for admiring glances from passers-by.

Tell stories your way

How will you capture your iconic moments? The video wasn’t an option with the Nikon FM2, but that SLR camera still broke barriers when it arrived, with faster shutter speeds than ever before. The Z fc delivers stunning video footage—and it’s also the first Nikon Z camera to feature a vari-angle monitor. Prepare to take your framing to a whole other level whether shooting handheld or with a tripod.
