Nikon released the entry-level full-frame mirrorless camera Z5 on July 21, 2020. The Z5 sample is impressive. Recently, we invited the Japanese photographer @SHOHKIENO to see how he used to take official sample photos for the Nikon Z5 full-frame mirrorless camera.
was born in 1989 SHOHKIENO, I am a street shooting photographer, living in Tokyo, Japan. Majored in graphic design at university and worked in a design company after graduation. Five years ago, became a photographer. The photos he took are widely acclaimed on social media platforms. His photos depict his experience as a graphic designer, and his bright and colorful style is impressive.
This time I used the Z5 full-frame mirrorless digital camera to shoot. The first impression is unexpected. To my surprise, the Z5 is very close to the high-end model Z7 I currently use. Not only has the convenient handling, but also the viewfinder’s visibility and image quality are excellent.
I appreciate the lightweight design of the Z5 because I often carry it on my back The camera shoots in the city.
When using a digital SLR camera, I used to use live view display Screen shooting. But after switching to a mirrorless digital camera, I found that the electronic viewfinder was both clear and comfortable, so I started to take more images through the electronic viewfinder. Just like seeing a small live view display in the viewfinder, releasing the shutter becomes more interesting. I take a lot more photos now than before.
The advantage of a full-frame FX format sensor lies in its low-light conditions Good performance. The image quality of the Z5 is also amazing. I like shooting portraits with outstanding environmental effects, which is also very important to me. The picture created with high sensitivity is still pure, even when viewed on a computer screen, there is almost no noise on the image, and the details are clear and sharp.
When I need to focus on the model’s eyes when shooting portraits, In the past, single-point autofocus was usually used. Every time the model or me moved, I needed to move the focus point to a new position. However, with the help of the Z5’s eye detection autofocus function, you can automatically detect and focus on the subject’s eyes by pressing the shutter release button halfway. This way I can move my position freely and focus more on the composition.
Because I usually shoot in cities, I always do Concerned about the weight of the camera. When the Z5 uses the kit lens NIKKOR Z24-50mmf/4-6.3, I will feel the lightness of this combination more strongly. The NIKKOR Z24-50mmf/4-6.3 lens is installed on the camera, which can cover the focal length range from wide-angle to 50mm, and despite its light body, it has full-frame image quality. It is a cost-effective camera.
I was surprised when the photos I took were edited on the computer The point is that even if the shadows in the dark are brightened, there is almost no noise, and the details can be clearly presented.
When using eye detection autofocus, its advantage is Able to concentrate on composing without paying attention to focus, and can also shoot while communicating with models.
For those who want to buy a full-frame FX format camera, the performance of this Z5 camera is balanced, and a variety of expressions can be achieved through it.
