Nikon India recently unveiled the latest camera in its line of mirrorless cameras, the Z 30. The legacy camera maker is positioning the compact mirrorless camera as the ideal camera for vloggers and as a gateway camera for amateur content creators who feel limited by their smartphone cameras and who are serious about getting into filmmaking.
The Z 30 is compact and easily carried in a backpack or purse, making it perfect as an essential everyday carrying set for any vlogger or content creator. The camera has a well-placed built-in microphone, a movie-recording indicator light – the REC lamp that notifies of ongoing recording, and an automatic switch to self-portrait mode.
Speaking of the launch of the Z 30, Sajjan Kumar, Managing Director of Nikon India said: “We are delighted to present our feature-rich, compact and lightweight latest Z 30 mirrorless camera, specially designed for young content creators, vloggers and streamers. The Z 30 is the epitome of creativity and is ready to spark the interest of young and avid photography enthusiasts. We are confident that our new Nikon Z 30 will give creators the power to easily produce the kind of video content that grabs attention.”
Despite its small form factor, the device has quite a bit to offer, mostly because it has some features that might switch to a full-fledged camera instead of relying on their smartphones. Nikon’s Z mount is used for starters, allowing content creators to opt for a wide range of lenses and try their hand at serious filmmaking.
Second, the 20.9 MP APS-C sensor allows vloggers and content creators to play with many more pixels and resolutions than even the best camera phones can offer. Also, you don’t have to deal with pixel binning, you get much larger pixels and a much better dynamic range, which would make your videos much more fun to post produce or edit.
The Z 30 can record up to 4K video at 30 FPS without cropping and record in 1080p at up to 120 FPS. Filming with this camera should definitely be fun.
It also exponentially increases the scope of what you can do while editing. The APS-C sensor has a 1.5x zoom factor via a full-frame sensorallowing users to better zoom in on their subjects and get a closer frame.
One of the best things about the Z 30 is its ability to shoot continuously for 125 minutes, assuming you don’t run out of storage. Seriously, try this with any smartphone and see what kind of problems you encounter.
The Nikon Z 30 starts at Rs 59,895 for the body only. For a basic starter kit, meaning the body, a 16-50mm f3.5-6.3 and a 64GB UHS-I SD card, you’ll have to shell out about Rs. 73,495.
