Nikon's New Z50 Is A More Affordable Mirrorless Camera

Nikon's New Z50 Is A More Affordable Mirrorless Camera

When Nikon announced their new Z-series of mirrorless cameras, it was the company’s attempt at trying their hand at mirrorless cameras again. So far, based on the reviews, the company seems to have gotten it right. However, these new cameras aren’t exactly what we would consider to be cheap, but the good news is that Nikon has something a bit more affordable for you.

Following the rumors that Nikon could have a new cheaper mirrorless camera in the works, the company has since officially confirmed it by announcing the Nikon Z50. As expected, this will be part of Nikon’s Z-series of mirrorless cameras and instead of a full-frame mirrorless camera, it will use an APS-C sensor, which we reckon is probably more than sufficient for most photographers, unless you’re a professional or have a need to go full-frame.
