Nikon Z8 Firmware Update Version 1.01 Released

By on

In addition to the new Z9 firmware update, Nikon also released a new firmware update version 1.01 for the Z8 camera. See details of the first Nikon Z8 firmware below.

Nikon Z8 is the perfect companion to the Nikon Z 9 and is a great successor to the D850. The Z8 offers the majority of the same features but in a smaller body. Inside the camera are the same 45.7-megapixel stacked CMOS sensor and EXPEED 7 processor that sit in the Z9. This enables the Nikon Z8 to record in-camera 12-bit raw video at up to 8.3K at 60p or 4.1K at 120p.

Nikon Z8 body: $3,996.95 at B&HAdoramaAmazon.

Nikon Z8 with 24-120mm f/4 Lens: $4,896.95 at B&HAdorama.

    • Focus could still be adjusted using the focus ring when [Disable] was selected for a15 [Manual focus ring in AF mode] in the [CUSTOM SETTINGS MENU] if an option other than [Non-linear] was chosen for f9 [Focus ring rotation range] in the [CUSTOM SETTINGS MENU].
