When the Nikon Z fc was announced a few months ago, we thought the camera maker was just trying to give Fujifilm some competition, but we were pleasantly surprised at how well the little camera performed in our tests. And it can be yours for 17% off the asking price when shopping on Amazon right now!

It's the second APS-C format camera in Nikon's Z series and what makes it stand out are the fun colours and the classic retro looks. The small sensor means you're getting an affordable camera as compared to the full-framers, and this Boxing Day discount makes it remarkably tempting indeed.

Nikon Z fc + Nikkor Z 28mm f/2.8 (opens in new tab) | AU$1,899 AU$1,568 on Amazon (save AU$331)

This offers is better than the one we saw during Black Friday when it was only AU$300 off on the kit. So if you've been keen on this little beauty for a while, then head on over to Amazon and snap it up in the colour of your choice – note that the black and sand beige editions are not available. The others are in limited stock, so get a wriggle on!

Packaged with the body is its 28mm prime lens, which is just as compact as the body, giving you a very travel-friendly package. It's the first Z-series snapper to boast a vari-angle rear LCD display, making it an excellent choice for vloggers.

For your money, you get a remarkable 20.9MP crop sensor, 209 hybrid AF points – with eye AF and animal detection on board – plus a native ISO sensitivity range of 100-51,200. If you want capture some action, it gives you a maximum burst speed of 11fps and video can be captures in glorious 4K.

You get a lot of manual control with the dials on the body – a leaf taken out of the Fujifilm playbook – and you can continue using it while it's still charging. Nikon truly has done very well with its retro-chic Z fc.

Managing Editor (APAC)

In addition to looking after they day-to-day functioning of Digital Camera World in Australia, Sharmishta is the Managing Editor (APAC) for TechRadar as well, and helps produce two of Future's photography print magazines Down Under. Her passion for photography started when she was wandering the wilds of India studying monkeys (yes, life took a sharp turn somewhere along the way) and is entirely self-taught. That puts her in the unique position of understanding what a beginner or enthusiast is looking for in a camera or lens, and writes to help those like her on their path to developing their skills or finding the best gear. While she experiments with quite a few genres of photography, her main area of interest is nature photography – wildlife, landscapes and macro. She still prefers an optical viewfinder but is utterly fascinated with what mirrorless technology has been able to achieve. 

With an ear to the ground in the Asia-Pacific territory, she is constantly on top of camera news and breaking developments in the Australian region, in addition to sourcing local deals during big retail events like Amazon Prime Day and Black Friday / Cyber Monday. 

She’s also a skilled stargazer, always eager to share astrophotography tips such as photographing the blood moon without even using a tripod!
