Nikon’s New Full Frame Camera Z5 Debuts Exclusively on JD
by Rachel Liu
On August 25th, Nikon’s new full frame mirrorless Z5 camera launched exclusively on JD in China. The product was available for pre-order on JD starting August 11th and was greatly welcomed by customers. During the first week of the launch, JD also provided customers with services such as 30-day return and price insurance. On August 25th, sales of Nikon on JD increased 400% YOY.
The Nikon Z5 collection is an entry-level full frame camera priced under RMB 10,000 yuan, so is suitable for young customers and new photography addicts. The camera is equipped with a 24.3 MP full frame CMOS sensor to capture detailed images even in a low-light environment. It is powered by Nikon’s EXPEED 6 image processing system and 5-axis VR image stabilization system for high-quality, high-clarity photos. Its Eye-Detection Autofocus can quickly find subjects’ eyes and follow them as they move. The 273 focus points can easily focus on the subject wherever it is in the frame. Those features actually make Z5 also a good choice for vloggers and professional filming teams.
JD has also been the first choice for many electronic brands to launch their new products, and has a vast group of high-end, young customers who demand high-quality products, which is the reason for Nikon to choose JD for the launch of its Z5. To help Nikon better promote the new product, JD also prepared gift boxes for customers including SD card, camera cleaning products and a backpack. The company also hosted photography professionals on a series of livestreams over the course of one week.
“I think Nikon Z5 is a great choice for those who have just started to learn photography. Its full frame lenses can capture more image area, and the stabilization system makes it easy to handle. The price of Z5 on JD is also very competitive for a full frame camera. I started to buy cameras and accessories on JD years ago because of the fast delivery and great service,” said Ge Shi, an experienced extreme landscapes photographer.
