Nikon Z8: what we think we know so far

Here is a recap of what we think we know about the upcoming Nikon Z8 camera with a few small details I received recently:

  • The Z8 was described to me as a hybrid camera between the Z7 and the Z9
  • Similar form factor to the Nikon Z6/Z7
  • Improved EVF
  • Improved autofocus
  • Same sensor as the Z9
  • Will not have all of the Z9 features (obviously)
  • Announcement expected before the summer
  • Price in Europe: around €4,500 – not sure if this is for a camera only or for a lens kit (US prices are usually lower)

Updates (unconfirmed):

  • The latest announcement time frame I got is April and shipping in May (development announcement could come earlier)
  • Will have the same battery as the Nikon Z7 (Nikon EN-EL15c)
  • External battery grip will be available
  • 8K 60 video
  • Dedicated USB-C Power Delivery port for charging/continuous use
  • 9MP EVF (the Canon EOS R3 already has 5.8MP EVF)

If you have any information on the Z8, you can contact me anonymously here.
