For serious and casual photographers that fancy storytelling and self-expression, Nikon Singapore has got your back with the new Z 30. Compact and portable, the unobtrusive APS-C size/DX-format mirrorless camera in the Z series range readily captures unique worldly perspectives in lifelike colours and clarity. Video creation and photography are made effortless with the optimal positioning of buttons and easy user interface, dedicated focus modes, long video recording time, and beautiful outputs even in low-light environments.
Video creators and vloggers can rely on the Z 30 with its prominently placed built-in microphone, a movie-record indicator light – the REC lamp that notifies of recording in progress, auto switch to self-portrait mode when the monitor faces front, and an angle of view that is approximately 100% even in 4K UHD/30p.
As quoted by Horie Masahiro, Managing Director of Nikon Singapore Pte. Ltd., “The Z 30 offers video capabilities that are simple and practical for aspiring users who are venturing into digital content creation. The impeccable performance and versatility of the camera empower creators to express and document their unique stories in amazing details and textures, supporting individual creativity.”
Inspiring Creativity with Mighty Features
The Z 30 is a camera dedicated to video filming. With up to 125 minutes of shooting time, Eye Detection Autofocus and Full-time Autofocus (AF-F), the camera offers unmatched consistency and delivers a focused shot in any setting.
Get more out of Auto mode with Single Autofocus (AF-S), Continuous Autofocus (AF-C), and Manual Focus (MF) available for choosing. For those with photogenic fur friends, the Animal Detection AF detects the eyes of pets for a focused framing in both video and stills.
Capture clarity and textures even in low-light settings, be it night market excursions or evening cookouts, with an ISO sensitivity of up to 25600 for videos and up to 51200 for still images – adding personality and breathing life into every shot taken.
The camera’s 4K UHD video with an approximately 100% angle of view makes filming product reviews or makeup tutorials a breeze, even in narrow spaces. Get imaginative and turn up the dial on the ingenuity of storytelling with Full HD/120p for slow-motion filming and 20 types of filter effects from Creative Picture Controls to choose from.
A responsive camera for those who enjoy vlogging or documenting travel adventures, the Z 30 sports a 7.5cm vari-angle touch-sensitive monitor to allow users to get creative with their shooting. With convenience being a large deciding factor to many camera owners, the Z 30 weighs approximately 350g and it’s ideal for extended periods of shooting or a long day out.
Compatible with a wide array of accessories, including the vast range of NIKKOR lenses, to Webcam Utility for live streaming, and NX Studio for quick and easy video editing, the Z 30’s versatility is unparalleled. With the SnapBridge application, it is now even easier to share and transfer your shots from camera to smart devices.
Wondrous Imagination and Possibilities
Taking beautiful photos of memories has never been easier. Users can adjust the intensity of light and shadow in Auto mode to compensate for any uneven lighting in an image. For creatives who are particularly concerned about reproducing the precise nuances of their intended portrait shots, Picture Control comes in handy with its three adjustment parameters.
Using the same image processing engine and Nikon’s proprietary CMOS sensor as the award-winning Z 7, the Z 30 delivers up to 11fps at normal settings with high-speed continuous shooting (extended). With silent mode enabled, it’s possible to shoot in places or moments that require minimal interruption as the shutter makes no sound at all when it’s released.
Performance and Practicality at your Fingertips
Usability is enhanced as the Z 30 offers an effective arrangement of operational controls inherited from high-end Z series camera models. The highly customisable mode dial can save up to three original settings, feature custom buttons for assignment to frequently used settings, and a photo/video selector that allows for fast and easy switching. The comfortable yet elegantly designed deep embossed leather grip is paired with an ergonomically shaped front right shoulder for added ease of use.
The Z 30 + NIKKOR Z 16-50MM VR will be priced at $1,309 while the Z 30 NIKKOR Z DX 16-50MM F/3.5-6.3 VR + NIKKOR Z DX 50-250MM F/4.5-6.3 VR will be priced at $1,679.00. For more information, head to Nikon website
