Nikon just lately introduced the Z fc, its latest APS-C providing with a design paying homage to the corporate’s movie cameras just like the FM2. Whereas we’re engaged on our full assessment, we thought we might current our studio take a look at scene outcomes right here in your perusal. Beneath is our commonplace studio scene comparability instrument, providing a have a look at the digital camera’s picture high quality efficiency in each daylight and low illumination (tungsten) lighting at a wide range of ISOs. The scene was shot utilizing the Nikkor Z 50mm F1.8 S lens.

You may toggle the comparability instrument above between JPEG and Uncooked modes by deciding on the specified mode within the related dropdown. On the high proper of our instrument you will see icons denoting ‘Full’, ‘Evaluate’, and ‘Print’. ‘Full’ provides you a 100% magnification view of every digital camera at its native decision; ‘Evaluate’ normalizes all cameras to the bottom decision digital camera current within the comparability, whereas ‘Print’ resizes all pictures to roughly 8MP output.

Colours in JPEGs are pleasing, with the golden yellows, heat greens and vibrant reds we have come to count on from Nikon. Just like the Z50 (and the Sony), the Z fc does not seem to have an anti-aliasing filter, so element seize is excessive, but it surely comes at the price of colour aliasing and moiré. JPEG sharpening is fairly aggressive, with giant radius sharpening inflicting extra halos round edges (also referred to as overshoot) than rivals like Fujifilm and Sony. Noise discount is sort of efficient at eradicating noise, but it surely comes at a substantial element price relative to the class-leading Sony.
