The Canon M6V2 is a more evolved camera series as its now many incarnations into the series. The M6V2, is the Flagship now, as it is taking the place of the M5. Its a nice Camer...

The Affordable Mirrorless I've Been Waiting For!
The media could not be loaded. The Nikon Z50 has a small compact design. Even with the lens, battery and SD card, it weighs 585g. The electronic viewfinder is very good and has minimal lag. It only has 1 SDXC slot and is UHS-1 speed. It uses MicroUSB instead of Type-C. Overall build quality is great...

Nikon Z 50 Review
Both offer more robust lens libraries, superlative autofocus and subject tracking, and slightly better battery life, for around the same price as the Z 50. The Nikon Z 50 is a good mirrorless camera with a lot of appeal to photographers already invested in the system, but isn't quite as capable as its rivals.

My first (in decades) dedicated camera. I love it
I haven't owned a dedicated camera in decades. After borrowing a DSLR for a trip to Africa, I knew I needed a "real camera" for future trips. After some semi exhaustive looking for a camera that was budget friendly, and capable, I settled on this one. So far, 100% satisfied with my choice. Picture q...

Early summer I started photography with a Nikon Z50 and had a lot of fun however I quickly found out that going forward I either had to settle for less quality glass, get more fullframe lenses or switch to fullframe. Since I didn't want to go fullframe I looked around and found a great deal for an used X-T3 with 25k shots on the shutter.
Finally! The camera that I've been waiting for !
Wow! The Z50 might be one of the most under-rated cameras that Nikon has ever launched! Photography is one of my favorite hobbies and I’ve been using Nikon equipment for about the last 7 years. I shoot wildlife using a D500 and the Tamron 150-600 G2 lens, and a recently purchased the Nikon Z6 for la...

Help buying a camera
The biggest mistake I did starting out was buy new. Buy a used nikon with a zoom lens. It's hard to recommend an exact model but I highly highly suggest she buys a used one. Personally, I would maybe go for a used nikon Z50 if it's within budget.
Love Nikons
Have owned multiple Nikons over past decades, went mirrorless with the Z6, but like the Z50 just as much. Very compact and fits in a coat pocket with the DX lens. Great for travel, picture quality is first rate.
