4K Video Recording and Sensor Design

Video and Streaming

At the heart of the camera is a DX-format 20.9MP CMOS sensor, which benefits not only video production needs but also makes the Z30 a highly capable stills camera, too.

  • UHD 4K recording up to 30p is supported for crisp, high-resolution video needs. Full HD 120p recording is available, too, for slow-motion playback.
  • Continuous recording for up to 2 hours 15 minutes is possible for documenting events or any other situation that requires longer continuous takes.
  • Live streaming is possible at up to Full HD 60p or 4K 30p, and the Z30 is compatible with a variety of web conferencing apps, meaning it can easily function as a high-quality webcam, too.
  • For longer takes, streaming, and other instances where you need constant power, the Z30 can be powered via the USB Type-C port.

Photo Capabilities

  • Versatile 20.9MP resolution suits stills needs, too, and means the Z30 is a perfect tool for capturing stills during productions or for photographing higher-resolution thumbnails and promotional images.
  • The large DX-format sensor benefits working in low-light conditions by producing imagery with low noise, high clarity, and a useful sensitivity range from ISO 100-51200, or up to ISO 25600 when recording video.
  • For photographing fast-moving action, a top continuous shooting speed up to 11 fps is available.
  • Merging stills and video, in-camera time-lapse production is possible.
  • Built-in presets and filters can also be used to refine your photos and videos straight from the camera.

Vlogging Essentials

Purpose-built for vlogging and content creation, the Z30 incorporates a series of physical touches and operational functions perfect for creators:

  • Compact body design incorporates a 3.0" 1.04m-dot free-angle LCD screen. This positionable screen can face forward for accurate selfie compositions and can close inward to protect the screen from scratches and fingerprints when not in use.
  • Selfie-style controls permit changing the focus position and exposure, as well as setting the self-timer, via the touchscreen when the screen is facing forward.
  • Front red tally lamp clearly indicates when the camera is recording.
  • Special attention is given to audio recording with the inclusion of a top stereo microphone along with the inclusion of a 3.5mm external microphone port for working with an optional mic. Also, there is an optional dedicated Wind Muff to cut wind noise and improve quality when using the onboard mic.
  • Steady your handheld videos using the digital e-VR image stabilization, which helps to reduce unwanted wobbles and shakes while recording.

Fast, Reliable Autofocus

Hybrid autofocus system uses both phase-detection and contrast-detection methods to quickly and accurately acquire focus for both stills and video applications.

  • Eye Detection AF uses facial recognition to help lock focus onto subjects' eyes.
  • Face and eye tracking can recognize people, dogs, and cats, and can lock onto these subjects and track focus as they move around the scene.
  • Ideal for product close-ups, the AF system quickly and naturally shifts focus as you hold something up to the camera and then re-shifts focus to the subject as the product is moved away.

Connectivity and Operation

  • Wi-Fi and Bluetooth compatibility work with the Snapbridge app for mobile devices, enabling remote camera control as well as wireless transferring of photos and videos to your smartphone or tablet.
  • Intuitive design includes a '?' button to provide a clear explanation of all camera settings, there is a dedicated Auto mode for times when you'd rather the camera optimize the shooting settings, and there's a customizable 'i' menu for quick access to your essential settings.

Nikon NIKKOR Z DX 12-28mm f/3.5-5.6 PZ VR Lens (Nikon Z)

 

Power Zoom for Content Creators

An essential lens for content creators, vloggers, and live streamers, the NIKKOR Z DX 12-28mm f/3.5-5.6 PZ VR, from Nikon, is a versatile ultra-wide zoom featuring a compact design, consistent Power Zoom control, and a flexible focal length range.

Versatile Ultra-Wide Zoom

Perfect for single-person productions, day-in-the-life vlogs, and other styles of vlogging and content creation, this ultra-wide zoom has a highly useful and versatile focal length range that helps keep you in the frame while also showing your surroundings.

  • The 12mm end of the zoom range is ideal for gaining immersive and broad field views as well as for recording yourself within the scene from arm's length.
  • The 28mm end, while still wide, lets you punch into the scene for a more selective view while still retaining context of the scene.
  • Built for use on APS-C/DX-format cameras, this lens has an 18-42mm equivalent focal length range.
  • Extra-low dispersion and aspherical elements contribute to high sharpness and well-controlled distortion throughout the zoom range.

Power Zoom and Handling

The first Power Zoom lens for Nikon Z mirrorless cameras, this lens uses an internal linear motor to change between focal lengths, rather than a conventional ring or mechanical method of adjusting the zoom.

  • Power Zoom can be controlled using the dedicated ring on the body or via the magnification buttons on select Nikon Z cameras. Additionally, Power Zoom can also be controlled via the optional ML-L7 Bluetooth Remote, from the SnapBridge app, or when using NX Tether Software and the optional MC-N10 Remote Grip.
  • Compared to mechanical zooming methods, Power Zoom offers consistent and repeatable zooming speeds, along with silent and highly precise results, for continuity between takes.
  • Choose between 11 different Power Zoom speeds to suit your subject and shooting style needs.

Vibration Reduction and Autofocus

  • Benefitting handheld use for both photo and video shoots, 4.5 stop-effective Vibration Reduction helps to reduce the effects of camera shake when working in low light and steady takes recorded while walking.
  • Stepping AF motor delivers smooth and silent focusing performance to benefit both photo and video applications.
  • Minimum focusing distance of 7.5" suits working with close-up subjects and delivering a unique point of view when combined with the ultra-wide focal length range.
  • Internal focus and zoom design, coupled with a compact and lightweight profile, makes this lens an ideal choice when working from a gimbal.
  • Lens also features a dust- and drip-resistant design to protect against moisture and other elements.
