Nikon Z 50

Nikon is finally adding an APS-C DX series camera to their mirrorless platform and though the camera loses the full-frame sensor, what it gains is an incredibly compact form factor that's perfect for travel. The camera houses a 20.9 megapixel DX-format sensor, which now has focal-plane phase-detection AF pixels and the performance of their latest EXPEED 6 image-processing engine. This allows for ISO Sensitivity from 100 - 51,200 and a continuous shooting speed of up to 11 fps at full resolution. 

On the back of the camera is a 3.2" 1040k-dot tilting touch display as well as an 0.39-in, 2360k-dot OLED EVF. As for lenses, the camera supports Nikon's new Z mount system, which has ten different lenses to choose from including a new 16-50mm pancake, a perfect match for the Z 50's compact size. Other features include 4K video recording capability, magnesium alloy construction, and SnapBridge for transferring images and video wirelessly to your smartphone or tablet.
