Quality that thrills.

What sets the Z fc apart is the 20.9MP DX CMOS sensor paired with the EXPEED 6 engine and the light-gathering advantages of the wider Z mount. Together, they give you clean, professional looking videos and stills, even in low light.

It all starts with the Z mount.

The Z fc is designed around Nikon’s revolutionary Z mount, the widest lens mount of any comparable camera system. A wider mount means more light, and more light means more of everything good—sharpness, contrast, accurate focus, low-light performance and image quality.

Freedom to compose.

Take a moment and appreciate the world around you from fresh perspectives. The Z fc employs a 3.0-in Vari-angle monitor—the first in a Z series camera. Effortlessly shoot vertical shots from low angles.

Set your sights.

The Z fc’s sensor is practically covered in focus points—87% coverage to be precise. That means wherever your subject is within the frame, a focus point is locked on. Compose the way you want.

Lock eyes.

Nikon’s intelligent Eye-Detection AF for video and stills quickly locks onto eyes—humans, dogs or cats—and follows them. This is especially useful when you can’t be behind the camera, for first-person videos and selfies.

Get your shot. Whatever the light.

ISO sensitivity goes all the way up to ISO 51,200 (expandable to ISO 204,800) with superb sharpness, detail and clarity. Create after hours and in less-than-ideal lighting.

Get creative. In camera.

Add uniqueness to your videos and stills with 20 Creative Picture Controls, all visible in real-time while you shoot through the viewfinder or Vari-angle display. Now, filters are part of the vision rather than an afterthought.

Video done right.

Comprehensive video, vlogging and streaming capabilities. Record 4K Ultra HD video at 30p, 25p or 24p full pixel readout with no cropping. Combined with NIKKOR Z lenses, you’ll maximize the sensor’s resolution and produce videos with lifelike depth and clarity.

The vlogger monitor you’ve been waiting for.

The Z fc’s Vari-angle display can face forward for easier vlogging and first-person recording. This activates self-portrait mode, bringing key camera controls to the monitor so you can conveniently touch and tap adjustments.

Live streaming and web conferencing.

Look your absolute best with the Z fc and a NIKKOR Z lens. Simply connect the camera to your computer with a USB Type-C cable (sold separately)-it provides power too—and compatible software like the free Nikon Webcam Utility. You’ll get sharpness, clarity and flattering depth of field unlike a typical webcam.

Autofocus. Automated.

The whole time you’re recording, the autofocus system is working, making precise adjustments to keep your subject in sharp focus. This means you can be the one in front of the camera, even streaming live, with total confidence in your footage.

Add an external mic.

Capture high quality sound in-camera using the Z fc’s built-in stereo mic or a dedicated third-party external mic. The 3.5mm stereo mini-pin jack provides plug-in power. Monitor your audio levels on-screen, including a clipping indicator, and make gain adjustments in real-time.

Image transfers. Wireless and automatic.

Pair your smart device to the Z fc from the SnapBridge app once, and your phone and camera are always connected. You can transfer videos and stills manually or set the app to automatically import every still you take, then edit and post your work with your favorite phone apps.

Grab the remote.

When you can’t be behind the camera, pull out your compatible smartphone and use it to control the Z fc. See what the camera sees, change camera settings like aperture and shutter speed, then take the video or still.

Set-up is a snap.

1) Open the SnapBridge app

2) Tap Remote Photography

3) Allow phone to switch to Wi-Fi®

4) Start capturing videos and stills!

Always up to date.

SnapBridge wirelessly updates the Z fc’s firmware to the latest and greatest. When paired, the app will notify you of any updates and send the firmware directly to your camera’s memory card for a quick and easy—and totally wireless—install.

Tough. Sophisticated.

Magnesium alloy frame. Tough, lightweight magnesium alloy frame protects the Z fc against life.

Hideaway touchscreen.

When you don’t need the touchscreen LCD, it’s safely protected within the camera.

Classic round eyepiece.

OLED viewfinder with 100% frame coverage. 1.02x magnification. Real-time preview of exposure, settings and effects.

Built to be easy. Auto mode with Nikon intelligence.

Prefer to let the camera determine the best exposure settings for your situation? Switch the camera to Auto and Nikon’s serious onboard intelligence will take over for you.

Help at the touch of a button.

Not sure what a setting does? Just tap the (?) button and a brief

explanation will pop up in the viewfinder or on the Vari-angle display. It’s like having a quick reference guide built into your camera.

i-Menu. Your menu.

Assign the menu items you use most to the i-Menu. Create separate i-Menu settings for video and still modes. You’ll have a one-click dashboard of the settings you rely on most.
