Nikon ZFC is basically the same deal as the Nikon Z50 with the same aps-c sensor and processor and several of the same specs.

this camera is very similar to the old Nikon fm2 style but it is definitely much lighter, it is a magnesium metal body the dials themselves all click really solidly.
The buttons are the same as the Nikon Z6 II, it has a fully articulating screen, what I don’t like there’s no screen on the back and it has a really nice viewfinder similar to the Fujifilm X-T3 viewfinder.
On other hand the iso dial does give you third-stop increments and we have the option to push up into the high settings as well.
There is two command dials on this body and they actually feel really good they’re located in a nice positions feel solid like on most nikon bodies.
On the left on the top of the camera is located mode selector switch there is a switch selector to go between stills and video, there’s an little LCD panel it’s just to show your current f-stop.
On the bottom of the camera there is a battery port EN-EL25 as well as a single sd card slot it’s UHS-1 it shoot up to 11 frames per second with autofocus tracking.
Zfc has fully articulating touchscreen LCD supplies live streaming is cooperative with external microphones and has an advanced 209-point AF system with full-time subject tracking and eye detection AF.
Nikon Z FC has an articulating screen that just comes out the same as Sony ZV E-10 and actually, Sony A6600 has a screen that flips up and Canon M50 Mark II has the articulating screen.
ZFC got a really nice exposure compensation dial 2.36 million dot EVF and just over a million dots on the back panel has a great look at the fully articulating panel it’s three inches. It’s got touch controls also have some touch exposure controls for example iso can be changed on the screen.
Zfc sports a 20.9 MP CMOS sensor which matches with XP 6 image processing to achieve quick shooting performance of up to 11 frames per second UHD 4K video recording at 30p and sensitivity up to ISO 51200.
Nikon Z FC has an APS-C sensor which means stands for an advanced photo system, also has 20.9 megapixels and has no ibis in body image stabilization. It has an iso range between 100 and 51200 which is so noisy for me.
The image processor on it is the Expeed 6 which is the same processor found in the Nikon Z6, the Nikon Z7, the Nikon Z6 II, and the Nikon Z7 II.
Autofocus performance seemed to be on par with the Nikon Z6 II it has the same modes as the Z6 II and some modes that are actually missing from the Z6 and the Z7.
The body of the ZFC weighs 450 grams it’s very lightweight very easy to carry compared to its competitors like the Nikon Z50.

it’s always good when you buy from more independent stores because you do end up with a better experience.
So, why you would go with the Z50 instead for ZFC because it does have some features that still make it stand out as far as the back panel if you like the tilting panel and the Z50 does have a pop-up flash.
So, why you would go with the ZFC the ZFC makes a lot more sense because there are some nice features like having the articulating screen the usbc on the side of the camera.
So my conclusion about this camera I can say that if you are a beginner you can go with Z FC but if you are a pro or if you want a camera that shoots primary video and great quality you wouldn’t go with this camera you can go with cameras like a Z6 or a Z7 or you can go with Nikon Z9.
