A Review of the Nikon Zf Mirrorless Camera

While vintage camera styles evoke a sense of nostalgia, serious photographers demand more than just good looks in their equipment. It's essential that high-quality cameras also excel in functionality, adaptability, and cutting-edge features. This question is pertinent when considering the Nikon Zf mirrorless camera. Does its performance live up to its classic design? This detailed video review takes a look at what you can expect from the camera. 

Coming to you from Christopher Frost, this great video review takes a look at the Nikon Zf mirrorless camera. The revival of traditional control knobs on cameras has been welcomed, as they offer quick adjustments without the hassle of navigating through menus. Cameras like the Fujifilm X Series, which provide easy access to essential settings, allow photographers to focus more on composing their shots rather than fiddling with technical settings, adding an element of enjoyment to their use that has made them rather popular. The Nikon Zf is in line with this trend, featuring a robust magnesium body and conveniently arranged control dials to minimize distractions. Beyond its appealing design, the Zf boasts advanced features like AI-driven autofocus, high-speed 30 fps shooting, five-axis stabilization, 4K video capabilities, and more. No doubt, it is a capable and fun camera that should satisfy many users. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Frost.

Interesting video. Camera is retro as advertised.
I laugh at the blanket control dial vs menu argument though.
My R7 and all Canon enthusiast/pro cameras have multiple dials and now control rings on lenses, including 100% of EF/EF-S lenses, so NO menu searches are ever required generally used settings while shooting. And they're 100%more usable than retro dials requiring 2 fingers and releasing the grip to use. So the dial thing is a joke if you are truly serious about speed and ease of use for changing settings,especially on the fly.
