Nikon Introduces 30-Day Trial for the Full-Frame Z5 in the US


If there’s one thing that ties most of the new cameras that have arrived in 2020, most of them are pretty expensive.

Not only does this mean they are out of reach for most of us but for those of us lucky enough to have the wherewithal to get something new we have to take a chance on something with which we don’t really have any prior experience.

That’s why a trial period makes perfect sense and, apparently, Nikon agrees.

From now until the end of November of this year, consumers in the United States can get a 30-day trial of the company’s full-frame mirrorless Z5 and, if they don’t like it, can return it free of charge before the end of that window of time.

EVP of Nikon Jay Vannatter is quoted by PetaPixel as saying of the program, “There are thousands of camera users who are considering upgrading to a compact full-frame mirrorless camera that is perfect for a fast-paced and creative lifestyle. Yellow allows them to do just that, in a worry-free way. We’re so confident you’ll enjoy using the Z 5 that we are letting customers try it for 30 days and if they don’t fall in love with it, they can just send it back.”
