As per reports, Nikon is close to launching the Zfc, a retro-inspired, Z-mount camera which is quite similar in design to the Df DSLR. The camera will be and APS-C one, expected to be same as Z50 in terms of its performance.

As of now, only one image of the camera has leaked. However, several mock-ups have been created in anticipation of what the camera will look like.

Looking at an image created by a Nikon Rumors reader Andres Melendez, we can see a shutter button, still or video functionality, record button, exposure compensation dial and shutter speed dial along with a small aperture indication screen. The image also projects a thin camera body which is highly similar to the Nikon cameras from the last century.

Reports say that the camera will be called Zfc and will be close to the Z50 in terms of technical specifications. The possible colors are silver, brown and black.

The company will also release 2 APS-C prime lenses; a 28mm f/2.8 and a 35mm f/1.8, in addition to the camera, in which the latter is expected to be shipped(optionally) as a kit lens. The lenses, unlike the camera will stay true to the usual Nikkor Z-mount lens design.

Nikon first released a retro-inspired camera in 2013 which, despite being unexpected, performed very well in terms of the image quality. Fujifilm’s efforts to push into film camera-like designs have proved this to be an idea worth pursuing.
