What to Expect from Nikon Z8 Camera?

By on

Here is our expectation of the highly anticipated full frame mirrorless, Nikon Z8 camera. Nikon expanded its Full Frame Mirrorless cameras portfolio by launching the Nikon Z7 and Nikon Z6 last year.

Nikon embraces a mirrorless future with Z series cameras and lenses. The Z series comprises both these two cameras and a new lens mount. As they continue to expand the offering for the new Z mount, rumors are coming out of the Nikon Z8, including claims of ultra-high resolution and deep bit depth.

Nowadays the company rumored to introduce a new high-res full frame mirrorless camera in early 2020. The device in question is a high-end model that would be called as Nikon Z 8.  In this post you’ll find what we expect from Nikon Z8 camera.

Our expectations about the Nikon Z8 camera

The rumor mill didn’t provide when will be the flagship Nikon full frame mirrorless camera become official. As a result Nikon Z8 camera price and release date information remains unknown. First let’s remember the Nikon Z7 specs and details.

Nikon Z7

The Nikon Z7 is an extremely well-rounded full-frame mirrorless camera and suitable for a wide range of photographic and video needs. It features a 45.7MP BSI-CMOS sensor, a hybrid AF system with 493 points and 90% coverage and 5-axis in-body image stabilization. The Z 7 can shoot continuously at 9 fps with AE locked and 5.5 fps with continuous AF/AE. The buffer is relatively small, topping out at 18-23 Raw and 25 JPEG images. It can capture 4K video using the full width of the sensor, or users can switch to a DX crop mode where the entire sensor is sampled.

The company is on the verge to announce a new flagship full frame mirrorless camera called the Nikon Z8. Here is our thoughts and expectations for the Nikon Z8 camera.

  • 61MP BSI CMOS Sensor (Sony A7R IV sensor)
