Nikon Z30 Mirrorless Camera

Let's take a look at the Nikon Z30, which is Nikon's entry level mirrorless camera. The Z30 has an APS size, 20 megapixel sensor. It features a flippy tilty screen to shoot video or vlog easily, so you can see what's happening on screen from any angle. It's very compact and lightweight, but still has a great rugged build to it with a great grip. The Z30 has excellent picture quality and features like face and eye detect, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth to quickly send to your phone. So if you're looking to step up your photography game and maybe step up from using the smartphone to a real camera, then check out the Nikon Z30.


Nikon Z5 Mirrorless Camera

The Nikon Z5 full frame mirrorless is a good option if you're looking to step up from an older dslr camera and if you want that full frame image quality with great low light performance that a full frame camera has to offer, the Z5 is a great choice. It's pretty light weight, has a great auto focus and pretty good video specs so it's a very vesatile camera. The Z5 has a tilting screen so you can get different angles especially for landscape photography or even kids and pets. The screen is a touch screen as well which you can use to pick your focus point and actually shoot from. The Nikon Z5 is a very versatile camera, very high quality and reasonably priced for a full frame mirrorless camera. Stop in and get one into your hands to try out!

Nikon Z6 II

Check out the Nikon Z6 II full frame mirrorless camera which is in the middle of Nikon’s Z series lineup and great for everyday shooting! It’s got 24 megapixels full frame sensor, a flip out tilt screen, shoots 4K video, features a very fast continuous shooting, and is really good at auto focus tracking for moving subjects. The Z6 II is fully weather sealed and has 2 memory card slots so you always have plenty of space for all your photos during a marathon shooting session! 

There are a lot of options for Nikon Z lenses, here are some of Aaron’s picks this season:

First up is the Nikon Z 24mm DX lens so if you have Z50 or Z30 and are looking for a bright, lightweight, inexpensive prime lens to shoot some portraits or to have a great little lens without much added weight, then the inexpensive 24mm F/1.7 could be your answer.

This is the Nikon Z 28 -75mm F/2.8 lens. It is a mid-range wide to portrait zoom that doesn't break the bank. The len’s constant F2 point aperture keeps your photos bright in difficult lighting conditions as well as creating great background blur. So if you're looking for an upgrade for an everyday lens, the Nikon Z  20-75mm lens has got you covered.

The bright, telephoto lens, Nikon Z 70-180 F/2.8 is great for anytime you can’t be right up close the action. It’s excellent for sports, wildlife, and kids. The best part is that it won’t break the bank. Stop into Rockbrook Camera today to this lightweight Nikon lens a try!
