TIPA WORLD AWARDS 2023
Nikon Z fc
Combine classic design and controls with modern technology and you have a good picture of the Z fc’s appeal. The design is a conversation-starter, especially among cognoscenti photographers who admire a retro feel, while the tech is right up to date with a 20.9MP CMOS sensor, an EXPEED 6 image processor that can deliver 11 fps stills and UHD 4K at 30p video, and native ISO capability up to 51,200. The Z fc fits right in with the latest live streaming and vlogging action, with a fully articulating touchscreen LCD, connectivity and sharing options, compatibility with external mics, and a large 3” LCD with a vari-angle design. One factor that the TIPA jury appreciated very much was how younger users whose parents (or grandparents!) were Nikon SLR photographers can mount older generation’s F-series lenses with an FTZ Mount Adapter, making photography part of the family legacy.
