The Nikon Z 28mm f2.8 SE Lens
The Nikon Z 28mm f2.8 SE Lens can be defined as a compact and lightweight lens that is well-suited to portraiture and still-life photography. By providing a smooth, clean bokeh that is quite unique to prime lenses, you are able to craft stunning images with a key focus on your subject. This 28mm lens also features a heritage design inspired by the classic NIKKOR lenses from around the time of the FM2 - a crowd-favourite Nikon SLR camera system first released in 1983. By incorporating the same exterior coating as the Nikon Z fc camera system, this lens is able to parallel its classic aesthetic and tactile functionality.
Redesigned and Refined
The Nikon Z fc is Nikon’s first Z-series cameras to wear a ‘heritage’ design. A design that conjures up notions of classic film photography that paved the way for photography as we know it today. Inspired by the iconic Nikon FM2 SLR film camera from 1982, the Z fc has a classic pentaprism design with Nikon’s 1970-80s logo and is complemented by black and silver elements and the inclusion of a circular eyepiece for its electronic viewfinder (EVF). In addition, the top of the camera is equipped with a seemingly familiar and simple dial design that offers precise control of shutter speed, exposure compensation and ISO sensitivity for quick and efficient settings changes, as well as a small aperture display. The body itself, thanks to its magnesium alloy construction, is compact, lightweight and robust. This camera is the epitome of taking classic visual and operational elements from the past and combining them with modern technology.
Accuracy and Versatility
A true sign of combing modern technology with a classic look is the Nikon Z fc’s photographic capabilities. Packed inside this lightweight and compact body is a wide range of tech that makes this camera easy to use and handle for both existing and first-time mirrorless camera users. A noteworthy addition is the use of fast and accurate Eye-Detection AF and Animal-Detection AF when shooting both stills and video - a feature that was first used in the Nikon Z 7II and Nikon Z 6II. The Z fc also has a wide-area AF (L) AF-area mode that limits the focusing area for the clear capture of eyes and faces. Furthermore, you can make use of an effective continuous focus on specific subjects even when in large groups, or the impressive eye tracking of moving animals.
In addition to the Z fc’s AF functions, the camera allows you to continue shooting when the light begins to fade with its wide standard sensitivity range of ISO 100-51200. Adding to its versatility, it features a Z-series first with a vari-angle monitor that allows for effective vertical shooting from low or high angles. Moreover, the monitor can be rotated to the front which will automatically switch the camera to a selfie-portrait mode for professional vlogging and selfies.
