The Nikon Z fc, announced on 29 June 2021 and released in July 2021, is a mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera with the Nikon Z-mount with a MSRP of $960 body only, in the US.[1][2]

It is based on the DX-format Nikon Z 50 and has a classic design with control dials, similar to the Nikon FM2, an F-mount film camera launched in 1982. The body is made from magnesium alloy and carbon composite materials. Overall, the Z fc has fourteen styles available: a silver body in 13 colors (black, white, mint green, coral pink, amber brown, natural grey, sand beige, midnight grey, chalk blue, mustard yellow, crimson red, walnut brown, olive green)[3] and a "Black Edition" with a fully black body,[4] with which Nikon also announced the Nikkor Z 40mm ƒ/2 SE lens (Special Edition) in November 2022.[5] The set includes a Nikkor Z 28mm ƒ/2.8 lens (Special Edition) designed to match the body.[6] The body is also distributed in a bundle with a silver version of Nikkor Z DX 16-50mm f/3.5-6.3 VR (SL).

The name "fc" is taken from the "f," which represents the fusion of Nikon's history and technology, and the "c," which represents the casual use of a camera with a classic design.[7] On 2 July 2021, Nikon announced that the Z fc "may not be available by the launch date due to higher than expected reservations".[8][9]

The Z fc has won the Camera Grand Prix 2022 Editors Choice R&D Award.[10]
