The Z fc is where classic Nikon camera design meets innovative Z series technology for superb image quality and pure, unadulterated style. Wherever you shoot, whatever you shoot—from stills to movies to vlogs. Propel your creativity into the future with the lightweight DX-format mirrorless camera that puts iconic in your hands.
It’s your turn now
Capture your iconic moments with a camera that connects you to the aesthetic you’ve always loved. Inspired by the celebrated Nikon FM2 SLR film camera from the early ‘80s, the Z fc mirrorless camera boasts authentic design details that have been meticulously re-created: from the control dials to the round viewfinder and the classic Nikon logo engraved on the pentaprism.
Handles like a Nikon film camera
Control dials are laid out just as they were on the Nikon FM2 and each dial is machined from solid aluminium. The mechanisms actuate with incredible precision—you’ll feel the click. If you’ve used a Nikon SLR camera before, your muscle memory will kick right back in. If you haven’t, you’ll love the physicality of the dials.
Love the performance
Designed around the revolutionary Nikon Z mount, the Z fc mirrorless camera can capture your iconic moments in stunning quality. Thanks to the Z mount, the large 20.9 MP DX-format sensor captures more light. And more light means more of everything good—sharpness, contrast, focusing speed, and low-light performance.
Tell stories your way
How will you capture your iconic moments? Video wasn’t an option with the Nikon FM2, but that SLR camera still broke barriers when it arrived, with faster shutter speeds than ever before. The Z fc delivers stunning video footage—and it’s also the first Nikon Z camera to feature a vari-angle monitor. Prepare to take your framing to a whole other level whether shooting handheld or with a tripod.
