    Zfc

    Posted by Jamie on October 2, 2021

    I wrote an earlier review of the Zfc and mentioned that I was a bit disappointed with the camera and that it was basically sitting unused on my desk because I didn’t think the viewfinder display was up to snuff—I haven’t completely made my peace with the viewfinder, but I have used the camera a lot more since I wrote that review. I have actually been enjoying using the camera and have taken some really great pictures with it. I have even managed to take some near-macro pictures of plants with the 16-50mm lens. The quality of the pictures is super and the camera is very easy to pop in a pocket or bag, or to put round one’s neck if out for a walk, which is what I have been doing. I love that the controls for exposure compensation, ISO, shutter speed are all easy to reach and use and the back view screen is really amazing. Could the display quality be better? Yes. But I am enjoying the camera nonetheless..

    A bit of a mixed bag

    Posted by Jamie on September 15, 2021

    I was really excited to take the step into mirrorless cameras and picked this up in order to do that. Its’a a great price for a starter mirrorless camera. Unfortunately, I find the viewfinder to be of poor quality. I was expecting a sharp, clear image that replicated the view one would see with one’s eyes, much the way my cell phone depicts the world. Instead, the viewfinder image is fuzzy and pixelated, like watching a TV with bad reception. I have even used the diopter wheel to make adjustments but I find the image is still not clear. I typically use a mirrored DSLR for my photography so part of my complaint might be based in the fact that I’m use to seeing exactly what my eye sees but through the viewfinder, rather than an electronically generated image, but I was expecting better . The camera itself is well made and a nice size. I think it’s good for someone who is migrating from a cell phone or a point/shoot camera to something more professional. It’s a nice size to put in a bag or even a jacket pocket when going out. I do like that the knobs on top give quick access to ISO and shutter speed, which with DSLR’s can be hidden in menu items and hard to find. For me, I think Zfc has reinforced my decision to stay with mirrored cameras, rather than migrate to mirrorless. If you are used to mirrorless already or pint/shoot then this is a great step up.

    Pros:
    Small
    Light weight
    Retro styling is cool
    Easy to access controls

    Cons:
    Viewfinder /electronically generated image
    Lack of DX lenses

    Looks Matter !

    Posted by Joe Ip on August 11, 2021

    I bought this camera for its classy retro look, but the performance of the Zfc does not disappoint either. I own a Z7 full frame camera and I can say that the Dfc is a very capable offer with very similar functionalities. In fact, The new fully articulating screen is a major upgrade from the Z7. When paired with a native lens like the 35mm F1.8 S, one could achieve fast AF performance and very high image quality despite of the lower resolution, cropped sensor. The mechanical dials are a joy to use, and I love the feeling of holding the Dfc body in my hand.....it brings back old memories of shooting film SLR cameras. One thing I would like to see is additional Film Mode simulations under Picture Control. This feature would provide further differentiation from other Z cameras, especially the Z50. If you are looking for good ergonomics and ultimate image quality, you should skip to a Z6 or Z7. But the Zfc is a very unique camera that simply inspires creativity. Well done, Nikon!
