    Z30 as a street photography tool

    Posted by Richard Edwards on March 30, 2024

    Mine is a bit unusual for a Z30 review. I love street photography and a light, small camera is perfect for the stills I take on the street. I already own the super excellent Nikon Z8 but it is a bit large and the Z lenses for it are also large. My Z30, with its small 16-50 zoom or 24mm prime lenses, is less than half the size and weight of my Z8. The iPhone that is always with me has made me a fan of composing on a screen rather than a viewfinder, so the Z30 works well for me. Its adjustable screen brightness and excellent autofocus make it a quick and light workhourse for my street photos.

    All the power, none of the nonsense.

    Basic functions, amazing results. All the bells and whistles removed so the power of the world thru the lens is out of this world.

    A year and a half and a lot of work.

    Posted by Chris Blohme on February 25, 2024

    Nearly a year and a half later, a bit of school, a lot of online research, and a pile of parts later. This thing is rigged out to get some of the best videos I could have asked for. While heat can be an issue, lens options are thin for the relative cost of the camera body, and features on comparable cameras may be lacking. This camera will help you get better at film and photo.

    Excellent Camera

    Posted by Jenny Oregel on January 1, 2024

    Overall great camera, especially for a beginner. I've already taken family photos with it outdoor overlooking a river, and the pictures were stunning. Also took it on a recent trip to Disneyland and the battery life did much better than I thought. The only time I had to charge it with my wireless charger I had was during the 25 minute long Christmas Parade. It did an excellent job. Only con i would say is there is no flash so when needed it can be difficult to get the perfect lighting for the shot you're trying to take.

    I like new but....

    Posted by George Jacob on December 12, 2023

    I like the speed of the new cameras and this one is a pleasure to use. I am a long time "viewfinder" guy but I am getting used to using the display especially since using pocket cameras. A little difficult in bright sun but guess I will lean to deal. Miss the flash though. Yes, cameras are fast in natural light but I often use daylight fill. I will pay for a viewfinder, flash and battery charger. Give us the option! They can't cost that much!

    Posted by Anonymous on October 21, 2023

    I bought this as a pocket camera to take in the concerts when they don't allow cameras other wise I use my z6 or my 780 but this camera is doing a fine job

    No charger included!

    Posted by Don Lajevic on September 6, 2023

    Camera is great. Nice compact size. Images are very crisp with accurate color. I use it with 14-30 f4 and 24-70 f4 lenses. My only gripe is nikon does not include a charger for this battery only a charging cable to be plugged into a computer USB port. None of the manuals indicate if a non-nikon 5V/2.4A wall charger can be used instead of a computer. I guess I'll need to buy the Nikon wall charger!

    High quality; amazingly feature rich

    Posted by Dan Foster on September 1, 2023

    I bought two Z30s primarily for video work (most of my paid camera work is videography, not still photography.) It was, at least for me, the first small, real camera that ticked all the boxes for my needs:Light, small, discreet, *no absurd 29m 59s lawyer-limit on video clip length.* Powers and charges over USB, (critical on long video shoots.) Clean HDMI out.Oftentimes, my two Z30s are the static shots in a three camera shoot—we can shoot in 4K, zoom and pan in post.When I’m manning a Z30 for video, I use its Small Rig cage so I can mount smooth zoom wheels, pull focus, etc. Still light, small, easy to deploy.But there’s so much more. Nikon has packed the Z30 with amazing capability for video and stills. Customizable buttons, three recall memories, customizable info screens and menus.I bought these for video, but now they have become my favorite travel cameras as well. Once I customized for the way I like to shoot, I was amazed to discover all it can do.I’m far sighted, so for stills, it’s challenging to shoot well without a viewfinder. Since I can’t adjust a diopter, I tend to use reading glasses so I’ll not trying to hold the Z30 as far from my face as my arms will stretch. So perhaps obviously, on the rare occasions I’m paid to shoot sports, action, or wildlife, I lug my Z8, big glass, and sometimes even a tripod and gimbal. (Of course all that gear is like ten times the weight of a Z30 with an Z DX 18-140 f/3.5-6.3.)For the price (and even way above), the size, the weight, the Z30 is untouchable for the eclectic work and hobby video and photography I do.
