The latest Nikon Z8 rumors (teaser campaign rumored to start in a few days)

Nikon Z8

I believe this is the best visual for the upcoming Nikon Z8

B&H Photo is already advertising the Nikon Z8 announcement

Here are the latest Nikon Z8 rumors:

  • The Nikon Z8 teaser campaign will likely start next week, on or around April 26. The multiple website updates and events (Asia, Germany, UK, Pakistan) point to a big event in the next few days.
  • The teaser campaign is expected to be different influencers/photographers/ambassadors talking about the Z8 camera features.
  • The Nikon Z8 is rumored to be officially announced in the second week of May (on or around May 9). As I already discussed before, there are multiple dates involved in these announcements and it is hard to say what is what.
  • There is also a Nikon event in Dubai on May 23rd.
  • The Nikon Z8 is rumored to start shipping end of May or in early June. Nikon’s goal for the Z8 is to cut the pre-order waitime.
  • The Nikon Z8 internal code could be Q2070.
  • The Nikon Z8 is referred to as the “mini Z9”.
  • The Nikon Z8 will have a better AF with telephoto lenses from a far distance (not sure why).
  • The Nikon Z8 will be the perfect camera for the prosumer market.

Previously reported Nikon Z8 rumors:

  • 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 focusing system, but improved)
  • Same sensor as the Z9
  • Will not have all of the Z9 features (obviously)
  • Announcement expected before the summer (the latest time frame I heard is April and shipping in May, development announcement could come earlier)
  • 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)
  • Will use 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)
  • 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)

Please note that the above Nikon Z8 specifications are collected from multiple sources over time and I am 100% sure some of them will not be correct.
