  • My last CPA file was using it to take a picture of my "other" CPA, alongside my D7500 & Z50. I love my CPA's.   They're so pocketable, so well-built, and so "Made in Japan"!
  • Replied in battery stock
    When I first checked, I'm almost certain B&H was showing "in stock" & "ship tomorrow". But you are correct, now it is showing not available. The following is one of my local camera stores also ...
  • Replied in Spare Battery
    I ordered mine here but they are now out-of-stock: https://www.vistek.ca/store/436227/nikon-enel25-rechargeable-battery-for-z50 I just checked online and it appears B & H has them in stock now: htt ...

  • When I’m out taking pictures, I carry my camera on a strap so it’s ready to shoot anytime I need it.  Now imagine if the battery was running low and I had to plug in a battery pack via USB ...
  • Created discussion thread Z50 tilting screen ... advantages?
    It almost seems like the whole review world has come and gave their final judgement crucifying the Z50 for not being implemented with an articulating swivel rear screen. I have to admit, myself ...
  • If size and weight of high priority, use the Z50 with the kit (16-50) lens.    This combo should be great for hiking/outdoors/everyday out-and-about. Once you put on the FTZ and start adapting F ...
  • Thanks for sharing kenmo.   Car shows are always fun.  I happened to come across one of our community show ‘n shines this past summer.   Luckily, I had my camera with me so was able to snap some ...
  • Same with the Z 16-50 kit lens too ... VR stays on under “shooting” modes    But it’s very quiet so you don’t really notice it on   Some of the F mount lens you can hear the VR sound when it’s on.
  • The VR works fine with F-mount lens on Z50 through FTZ.   The only thing of note is VR turns ON and remains ON as long as the Z50 is in a “shooting” mode (as opposed to on DSLR where VR only turns ...
  • Also keep in mind that spare batteries for the Z50 are pretty hard to come by at the present moment.  So if you’re using it for a vacation soon, it may be of some consideration. And like another ...
  • I took a couple images comparing the Z50 with D7500 (which should be similar to the D500). Have a look here: https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/63303569
  • Replied in Z50
    Here you go ... these are in-camera jpgs.  Focus point is on the "barcode" of the orange wine bottle.  Shot 3 images at various apertures so you can see the change in depth of field but the focus ...
  • Replied in Z50
    my 35/1.8 also exhibited a fair bit of back focus.   To the point where I would not use it at all on by D3200 body.   On my D7000, I had to dial the AF fine tune a fair bit to compensate for this ...
  • Just following up on my earlier notes regarding VR staying ON. This happens only when the camera is in one of the SHOOTING modes. As soon as you cycle it over to a MENU screen, the VR will turn OFF. ...
  • Replied in Z50
    I've used only Nikon lens with the FTZ adapter.  16-80, 18-140, 18-200 ii, 35/1.8, 10-24, and 18-55 af-p.  All work perfectly fine. One thing of note is that on the Z50, VR is engaged as soon as ...
  • I’ve got SnapBridge Bluetooth connected to both my Z50 and D7500.   It switches seamlessly between the two camera’s.  I’m running on Apple iOS.
  • Interesting observation. For me, on Capture NX-D, the two files yields similar results, with the Z50 looking just a little cleaner (almost as if it’s been manipulated already).   After cleaning up ...
  • Replied in Z50
    I got a new Z50 that I’ve been shooting with for a week now since it was first released. Since your main interest is whether a mirrorless can potentially offer improvements over a DSLR for still ...
  • Created discussion thread Z50 RAW compared with D7500
    Camera settings were setup identically and both shot with 16-80/2.8-4 lens with Active D-lighting turned OFF and iso set to 6400. Image files were then compared in Nikon's Capture NX-D program ...
