Best Mics For Nikon Z5

Nikon Z5 was launched in the summer of 2020 and is the most affordable full-frame mirrorless alternative for the company from the point of time this article was published. The camera has a 24MP, IBIS (in-body image stabilization), 4K video recording with a capability of up to 30 fps and double card slots.

We’d not suggest this camera to experienced video shooters because it has a very strong 1.7x crop when filmed in 4K, but we think it’s a perfect alternative to up-and-coming YouTubers, vloggers and others! Note that the camera has integrated microphones that don’t sound fantastic (built-in mics never sound). Therefore, we firmly recommend you invest in an external mic. Having said that, let’s look at some of the Best Mics for Nikon Z5.
