You can get 30 days of use out of the Z 50. And at the end of the trial period, if you don’t like the camera, you can send it back.
According to Nikon’s website:
We’re so confident that you’ll fall in love with the photos and videos you’ll get with your new mirrorless Z 50 camera, especially when compared to the ones you get with your smartphone, we’ll let you try one at home for 30 days. If you don’t fall in love, send it back to us for a full refund, including shipping.
A neat aspect of the program is that Nikon allows you to choose your kit so that you can trial the Z 50 with a 16-50mm VR lens (for $999.95 USD), with the 16-50mm lens and a 50-250mm VR lens (for $1199.95 USD), or you can just get the Z 50 (for $859.95).
The camera arrives with a charger, a battery, and a memory card, so you’ll have everything you need to start taking photos.
Now, you will have to be careful when trialing the Z 50, because you’re responsible if the camera comes back to Nikon in anything less than like-new condition. Note that Nikon makes you pay upfront, either in full or in installments through PayPal, so you’ll need to be prepared to hand over money in advance.
Really, there’s a lot to like about this program with very little to lose; assuming you take care of your camera equipment, you should have no problem trialing the Z50 without risk.
Of course, the Z50 isn’t a camera for everyone. But it does offer a lot of power in a little, fairly inexpensive camera body: a 20.9-megapixel APS-C sensor, 11 frames-per-second continuous shooting, 4K video, and much more. If you’re a user of full-frame cameras, you’ll probably want to go for one of Nikon’s other mirrorless options (or a Canon, or a Sony, or a Panasonic).
But if you’re a hobbyist looking to upgrade from a smartphone, a compact camera, or a consumer DSLR, then the Z 50 is definitely worth a look!
Will you take advantage of this and try out the Nikon Z50?
