However, the IQ from that camera is no better than that from a Z50 or D500
However, the IQ from that camera is no better than that from a Z50 or D500, so maybe future posts should limited to the user experience.
No one who has been following this thread has asked me why I’m replacing the D500 with the Z fc, a body which is less than half the cost of the D500. Which tells me they don't really care, which is why I didn't include the reasons in my post. The Z fc has four features which the D500 doesn’t have, likewise the Z fc falls short in a couple of areas compared to the D500, one of which is not limited to the Z fc. Sure, it took me a while to tweak the Z fc to give the results I like, but now I’m getting more keepers on a consistent basis.
It works great. I shot some of my dog at the park with it. not really had a lot of other need here lately to use it.Richard, I've wondered how the 300mm pf works on your Z fc. I would really love to have that lens in a Z mount, but who knows how long Nikon will take to do that. I may cave in and get it with the adapter.
Are you keeping your Z50? This should be a fun camera for you.
Those will be great features for you. I don't know why Nikon doesn't put the articulating LCD on all their cameras. I loved it on the D5600.I ordered this Zfc for two features that I always wished the Z50 had: flip-out, articulating LCD and focus-shift shooting like the Z6.
I'll probably keep my Z50. I had a little accident with it and put a small crack in the LCD. I don't notice it when I use it, but the camera won't be worth much for resale.
People sometimes say they hate the fully articulating screens, and they get in the way of an L bracket. Well Fuji have for ages had one that doesn’t obstruct an L bracket. And the Z9 has one too. It gets worse because the Z 6/7 screens don’t have as much range of motion as the D500 one.Those will be great features for you. I don't know why Nikon doesn't put the articulating LCD on all their cameras. I loved it on the D5600.
I don't think that's normal. Are you sure the box was unopened? I'd check the shutter count at leastMy new Zfc was awaiting me when I returned from a long weekend away this evening. It came with two batteries...one in the box and one in the camera. Is that normal?
Major concern: is it possible to set single-point AF? I don't see that in the menu.
