Here we identify a few of the other interesting features the Z 5 o ers that we haven’t yet looked at
The Nikon MB-N10 battery grip (£179) fits the Z 5. It accepts two batteries and increases battery life close to 1,000 shots, which should suffice for an average day’s shooting.
The My Menu setting gives users the choice of customising their most frequently used menu settings into one area. Adding and removing items is made easy by tapping the touchscreen.
To record video you’re required to flick the stills/video switch that encircles the DISP button. Only when this is done can you start/stop video recording using the movie-rec button.
The two Fn1 and Fn2 buttons beside the lens mount are customisable. Set to default, Fn1 adjusts White Balance and Fn2 adjusts focus mode/AF-area mode in combination with using the front and rear dials.
The Z 5’s accessory terminal allows users to plug in a wired remote shutter release cable such as Nikon’s MC-DC2 (£29). Alternatively, users can trigger the shutter wirelessly using Nikon’s SnapBridge app.
An always-on Bluetooth connection can be set up between the Z 5 and your phone, enabling every picture you shoot to be automatically transferred to your phone. Selecting the 2MP mode helps speed up transfer times.
