Nikon has finally unveiled the true successor to the acclaimed D850: the Z8.
This full-frame mirrorless camera is 30% smaller than the Z9 flagship and 15% smaller than the D850, but it packs flagship power in a more compact form factor.
Nikon’s packed the Z8 with a 45.7-megapixel BSI stacked sensor with EXPEED 7 image processing, allowing for speed and precision in the most demanding of shooting environments. It can shoot at up to 10 frames per second with full AF/AE tracking, and it can record 4K video at up to 60fps. It’s even able to capture 8K60p N-RAW video and 20fps RAW burst speeds.
Other features include a 5-axis in-body image stabilization system that can compensate for up to 7 stops of camera shake. This makes it ideal for shooting handheld in low light or with telephoto lenses. There’s also a vari-angle touchscreen LCD that makes it easy to frame shots from awkward angles. A 2.36-million-dot electronic viewfinder provides a clear and accurate view of the scene.
The Z8 is compatible with the full range of Nikon Z-mount lenses, including the new 24-70mm f/2.8 S II and 70-200mm f/2.8 VR S II lenses. It also has built-in flash and a hot shoe for attaching external flashes.
Nikon’s new Z8 is a powerful and versatile camera that is sure to please both professional and enthusiast photographers. It will be available May 25th starting at $4,000 and can be pre-ordered now.
