Why it's important to compare Nikon Z50 vs Nikon D5600, if you are planning to buy an entry level DSLR or Mirrorless Camera?

Recently we declared Nikon D5600 winner over Nikon D3500, but what about comparing it with one of the mirrorless and also discuss in details, what it means to buy a mirrorless vs a DSLR. So it's a 2 layered question in front of us :  1. Mirrorless vs DLSR ?   2. If you are flexible, then which one is better option : Nikon D5600 or Nikon Z50 ?


Recently we declared Nikon D5600 winner over Nikon D3500, but what about comparing it with one of the mirrorless and also discuss in details, what it means to buy a mirrorless vs a DSLR. So it's a 2 layered question in front of us :

1. Mirrorless vs DLSR ? 

2. If you are flexible, then which one is better option : Nikon D5600 or Nikon Z50 ?


We will write this blogpost for 2 kind of Photographers :

1. Photographer who is buying her first camera.

2. Photographer who has been using a DSLR camera and has invested in lenses. 

Before going into above aspects, let's simply focus on Camera capabilities and see what makes Nikon Z50 more desirable in comparison to Nikon D5600 :


1. Nikon Z50 Mirrorless camera offers 11fps in comparison to 5fps offered by Nikon D5600.

2. Nikon Z50 Mirrorless camera has 209 focus points in comparison to 39 focus points. But I find 39 as a good enough number for focus points being offered by a camera. 

3. Nikon Z50 Mirrorless camera has a 21 Megapixel BCI-CMOS Sensor.

4. Nikon Z50 Mirrorless camera support ISO upto 51,200, which is a crazy number for person like me who is using 10 years camera which supports 6400 max and I am talking about old Full-Frame camera. 

5. Nikon Z50 Mirrorless comes with 3.2" tilting screen.

6. Nikon Z50 Mirrorless 3840*2160 video resolution, which is far more than many entry level DSLRs or entry level Mirrorles cameras offer. 

7. Nikon Z50 Mirrorless has weight less than 400 gms and it's lighter in comparison to Nikon D5600. 

8. Nikon Z50 Mirrorless comes with weather sealed camera body. 

9. Nikon Z50 Mirrorless offers +-5EV bracketing, which is very helpful if you want to create great HDR images.

10. Nikon Z50 Mirrorless has eye tracking focus, which sounds pretty cool if it works well. I haven't tried, so can't really comment on it's effectiveness. 


There are some fundamental differences of these two body types - DSLRs and Mirrorless cameras. The Mirrorless cameras are becoming serious alternatives to DSLR cameras. And some of the key reasons have been size/weight advantages and recent improvements in their focus speeds, which makes this comparison even more interesting. The best past if that you can't go wrong with any of these cameras, as both of them offer competitive capabilities at the price they come. 


There are numerous other features and capabilities in Nikon Z50 but idea is not to dump everything here and focus on decision making factors. So we will avoid dumping all the features which at times more for marketing than real usage. 


Now let's also talk about some of the reasons because of which you may want to chose Nikon D3600 DSLR over Nikon Z50 Mirrorless camera :

1. Nikon D3600 offers 24 megapixels in comparison to 21 MP by Nikon Z50.

2. Battery life of Nikon D3600 is too good. Nikon D3600 can shoot 800+ images with one charges in comparison to 300+ shots with Nikon Z50.

3. Nikon D3600 offers flash coverage of 12m in comparison to 7m with Nikon Z50. 

4. Nikon D3600 offers NFC connection ability if that matters to you. 


Now let's address if you are already using a DSLR camera and have invested in F-mount lenses. If the choice is between these 2 cameras, I will comfortably recommend to go with Nikon D5600 as you won't need any adaptor and all lenses will be reusable. There is a small caveat - if you wish to invest more in coming years into lenses then you can opt for Mirrorless. In short run, you can use old lenses with adaptor and gradually move completely to Mirrorless eco-system where more innovation will happen in future. 


And the answer is simple if you are first time buyer of the camera - go for Nikon Z50 by keeping in mind that variety of lenses will not be as much as you can get with Nikon D5600 so it also depends upon kind of investment you want to make in lenses. 


We are not listing all the features/capabilities in these cameras, especially the common capabilities. Above information is to help you make a clear decision and we believe that more details may confuse further.
