Nikon Z30 might be the new affordable version of the Z50 APS-C mirrorless camera.
Looks like every camera manufacturers these days is also offering a pocket-friendly version of its flagship system. This is a trend followed in the smartphone industry these days. After news about the Sony a7c, Nikon Z30 has also made it to the headlines. The new model from Nikon will be a compact version of the Z50 in a much affordable body.
Nikon Z30 will be the new entry-level mirrorless camera sitting right below the Z50. Z30 will feature a DX-Format 24 Megapixel sensor which seems to be a slight upgrade from the Z50’s 22 Megapixel sensor. The camera is likely to feature 4K video recording which maxes out at 30p and FHD recording goes all the way up to 60p. There will be a 3.2-inch 1.04m-dot LCD screen at the back and as the news goes there will be no EVF.
Like the Z50, there will also be a single card slot support UHS-I cards. There other features like the support for Bluetooth and WiFi, USB Type-C cable for connectivity, and EN-EL15c battery powering the setup. The Nikon Z30 is expected to launch sometime in November. There are rumors that Nikon is planning an entry-level mirrorless system which would likely mean the Z30 might not make it. One the other side of the news, Nikon is also preparing new Z lenses, Nikkor Z 50mm f/1.2 S and Nikkor Z 14-24mm f/2.8 S. Nikkor Z 50mm f/1.2 S will feature an LCD similar to the Nikkor Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S lens and will be similar in size as well.
Nikkor Z 14-24mm f/2.8 S, on the other hand, will be a smaller and lighter version of the F-mount version. There will be support for regular filters on the lens. The pricing of these new lenses is still not known.
