Nikon Z f Overview

The Nikon Zf is a stylish, retro-inspired mirrorless camera that brings together classic design and modern technology for a uniquely enjoyable shooting experience. Drawing inspiration from Nikon’s iconic FM2 film SLR from the 1980s, the Zf features a slimmed-down body with dedicated shutter speed and exposure compensation dials that give direct manual control over exposure settings. Yet it also packs impressive specs like in-body image stabilisation, fast 14 fps continuous shooting, and advanced autofocus with 3D tracking.

At the heart of the Zf lies a proven 24-megapixel backside-illuminated CMOS sensor and Nikon’s powerful EXPEED 7 processor, delivering stunning image quality with excellent dynamic range and vibrant colours. Low light performance is also strong, making it a highly capable available light camera. The sensor works in tandem with 5-axis in-body stabilisation rated to 8 EV stops for sharp images even when shooting handheld with slower shutter speeds.

For those who enjoy the hands-on shooting experience, the Zf shines. Filmmaker-inspired video features like 10-bit N-Log recording and excellent 4K video add further versatility. Dedicated dials for shutter speed, ISO, exposure compensation and drive mode mean camera settings can be quickly adjusted on the fly without diving into menus, enabling you to stay focused on finding and capturing the perfect shot.

Add in a very good autofocus system with eye and subject tracking, plus a rear touchscreen that flips out for selfies or vlogging, and the Zf shapes up as an outstanding creative tool. It may lack some creature comforts of pricier models, but the Zf nails the fundamentals for enthusiasts seeking outstanding image quality and an inspiring shooting experience to spark their creativity.

Nikon Zf Features In Detail

Classic Design

The Nikon Zf features a slim, compact body design clearly inspired by Nikon’s iconic FM2 35mm film SLR camera from the late 1970s to the early 80s. Physical shutter speed and exposure compensation dials provide that familiar hands-on shooting experience so coveted by photography enthusiasts. Small touches like the threaded shutter button and a tiny window that displays the set aperture values further enhance the retro aesthetic. Yet the Zf still incorporates conveniences like a high-resolution fully articulating rear LCD.

Image Stabilisation

The Zf utilises a 5-axis sensor-shift image stabilisation system capable of up to 8 exposure stops of shake compensation. This allows for sharp images when shooting in low-light situations where longer shutter speeds are needed to properly expose the image. The stabilisation system automatically adapts based on the focal length of the attached lens. It can even engage during the initial shutter press to stabilise the frame before the actual exposure occurs. Handheld low-light photography is thus made possible even when lenses with longer focal lengths are used.

Backside Illuminated Sensor

At the heart of the Zf lies a 24-megapixel backside illuminated CMOS image sensor. Its construction places photodiodes at the base of each pixel, allowing more light capture. Combined with the latest EXPEED 7 image processor, this full-frame sensor delivers excellent noise control and generous dynamic range at default and expanded sensitivity levels from ISO 64 to ISO 204800. Accurate colors are rendered especially for portraits.

Advanced Hybrid Autofocus

The 273-point hybrid AF utilises both phases detect and contrast-detect AF for reliable focus across 90% of the frame. Continuous face detection works in conjunction with 3D-tracking for tenaciously staying locked on moving subjects. This enables capturing moments as they occur with far fewer missed shots. When human or animal subjects are detected, specific eye, body or paw tracking further bolsters hit rates. Nine distinct subject profiles aid focus precision too.

Video Recording Options

While photography remains the primary application for the Zf, video capabilities still impress. 4K UHD footage at up to 30 fps can be captured using the full width of the image sensor or in DX crop mode, 60 fps recording is possible. Full sensor oversampling results in highly detailed, sharp footage. 10-bit HDMI output unlocks advanced N-Log profiles for improved dynamic range during colour grading. A 3.5mm socket allows audio monitoring while shooting video.

High-Resolution Pixel Shift

When ultimate image detail is needed and a static subject can be used, the in-body stabilisation system enables a special 96-megapixel High Res mode. By precisely moving the sensor in half-pixel increments and capturing a sequence of shots, full RGB colour information is gathered at each photosite location through pixel shifting to build files with exceptional resolutions once processed in software. Ideal for commercial applications like product, macro or landscape photography.

Extensive Customisation Options

While the external controls are fixed around the shutter and aperture, the touchscreen interface facilitates adjustments and changing camera handling to suit shooting preferences. Custom setting banks let photographers save specific configurations like AF modes, metering choices and button shortcuts for quick retrieval later. Intuitive menus allow toggling useful features like focus peaking, exposure and histogram displays plus intuitive touch controls for AF point positioning and image review.

Nikon Z F vs Z fC

The new Nikon Z f offers photographers a classic, retro-inspired design in a modern full-frame mirrorless body. Compared to the Z fc, the Z f has a higher resolution 24.5MP sensor, deeper grip and more robust build quality. It shares the powerful EXPEED 7 processor with the Z fc for class-leading image quality and speed. While both offer extensive video features, the Z f pushes the envelope further with 10-bit N-Log and oversampled 4K video from a 6K capture area.

For stills, the Z f brings welcome upgrades like a vari-angle touchscreen, Pre-Release Capture, and 3D Tracking focus. Its hybrid AF system works in lower light, down to -10 EV compared to the Z fc’s -4 EV. Ultimately, the Z f will appeal to photographers seeking traditional manual controls in a lightweight mirrorless body, while the Z fc leans toward an advanced point-and-shoot experience.

What We Think Of The Nikon Zf Review

The Nikon Zf brings together the best of both worlds – fusing a vintage design ethos with contemporary cutting-edge imaging technology. It strikes that often difficult balance between form and function. The slim, pared-back styling calls to mind legendary mechanical SLRs of old, with physical control dials granting intuitive manual adjustments and harking back to a more hands-on shooting experience.

Yet housing inside sits a sophisticated 24-megapixel sensor aided by 5-axis in-body stabilisation and backed by a powerful EXPEED 7 processor that enables advanced capabilities like a 14 fps burst mode, pixel shift high resolution and extensive video functions. Make no mistake, this is a modern mirrorless camera through and through.

It feels substantial in the hand with its mostly magnesium alloy shell but remains compact and portable enough for daily use, be it urban photo adventures or travel photography. The sensor delivers excellent dynamic range and noise control even when lighting conditions are less than ideal. This applies equally to the Zf’s highly effective video modes – 10-bit 4K recording and N-Log profiles unlock serious creative control.

As a mid-tier model, the Zf does omit some niceties like a top display panel and joystick controller. But core functionality remains assured through the thoughtful use of several customisable buttons and dials. The rear flip touchscreen more than compensates as an interactive live-view shooting aid. Match it with some compact vintage-styled primes like the 40mm f/2 Z-mount for a highly engaging photography experience.

In the end, Nikon gets full marks for courageously bringing this dashing retro beauty to market in an era dominated by conservative design conventions. Purists pining after the iconic mechanical film SLRs of old can rejoice too – the Zf pushes all the right buttons for nostalgia while delivering outstanding imaging abilities. Form and function executed with aplomb.

The new Nikon Z f makes a retro splash in the full-frame mirrorless segment. Its classic styling houses the latest photographic innovations, creating an enticing modern classic.

Old School Charm

Harkening back to Nikon legends like the FM2, the Z f oozes vintage appeal. Physical dials provide direct control over shutter speed, ISO, exposure compensation and more. The weather-sealed magnesium alloy body exudes premium build quality. Despite the retro aesthetic, the Z f remains pleasingly compact and lightweight at just over 1.5 lbs.

While the design evokes the past, the vari-angle touchscreen and high resolution EVF keep the Z f firmly in the present. Easy to navigate menus and intuitive controls combine tradition with modern usability. Any photographer seeking a tactile, hands-on shooting experience will feel right at home with the Z f.

Cutting Edge Performance

Inside the classically-styled shell lies some of Nikon’s most advanced technology. The 24.5MP backside-illuminated sensor delivers stunning image quality with wide dynamic range and astonishingly low noise. Paired with the EXPEED 7 processor, it enables a native ISO up to 25,600, expandable to ISO 102,400 for incredible low light versatility.

The powerful focusing system offers 273 on-sensor phase detection points for lightning fast focus and tenacious subject tracking, even when shooting action at 9 fps. Remarkably, autofocus functions in light as low as -10 EV, enabling easy shooting in near pitch darkness.

Pre-capture buffering ensures you always get the decisive moment with up to 35 full-resolution JPEGs saved before you fully depress the shutter. This proves invaluable when reactions must be instantaneous like in sports or wildlife photography.

Rock Solid Stabilization

In-body 5-axis stabilization provides up to five stops of shake reduction with supported lenses. This allows sharp handheld images at speeds as low as 1/15 sec, greatly aiding low light photography. The stable image stabilization also enables smoother handheld video recording across all resolutions.

Advanced Video Toolkit

Serious videographers will appreciate the Z f’s extensive video capabilities. It supports full-width oversampled 4K recording from 6K data for maximum detail and sharpness. 10-bit N-Log output makes the most of the wide dynamic range for extensive grading options. Slow motion Full HD video at 120 fps enables beautiful artistic effects.

Monochrome Magic

Black and white photographers can rejoice in the Z f's dedicated monochrome menus. New Flat and Deep monochrome picture profiles offer exceptional tonal range and depth when shooting JPEGs. Plus, features like multiple exposure and pixel shift modes take black and white creativity even further.

Conclusion

The skillful fusion of heritage design and latest technology makes the Z f a brilliantly capable full-frame mirrorless camera. From fine art black and white to fast action sports, it handles virtually any subject with aplomb.
