Melville, NY—Nikon is now making it easier to discover the benefits and image quality of the full-frame Z mount through the Z 5 Test Drive Rental program. The program offers individuals the opportunity to try out the Z 5 as well as the advantages of upgrading to a compact full-frame mirrorless camera. The rental program closely follows the company’s Nikon Z 5 Yellow worry-free home trial program, which runs through November 30.
Whether a DSLR user looking for a smaller, lighter camera system or a smartphone user seeking high-quality results, the program allows consumers to try the Z 5 before they buy it.
“In addition to its stellar image quality, Nikon is confident users will appreciate all that the Z 5 offers, including excellent low-light performance; superb 4K UHD video; fast autofocus; powerful performance; and a portable design that’s ready to go anywhere,” the company announced.

Moreover, the Nikon Z 5 Test Drive program is available at approximately 140 retailer locations nationwide. Through the program, customers can rent a Nikon Z 5 as well as a Nikkor Z 24–50mm lens kit from a participating retailer for $49.95 (subject to taxes) for one week.
The program offers a user-friendly way to explore the creative possibilities of the Z 5. Furthermore, if the camera is the right fit, the Nikon dealer can apply the rental fee to the purchase of the camera.
“This limited time offer provides the chance to discover the legendary reliability and handling of Nikon full-frame cameras; as well as the image quality and renowned color science that can help bring your photos and videos to the next level. When paired with powerful Nikkor Z lenses, including the ultracompact Nikkor Z 24–50mm f/4–6.3, or more than 360 F-mount Nikkor lenses with the mount adapter FTZ, users can create with stunning clarity and sharpness in every shot,” Nikon added.
