The Nikon Z8 is a compact, lightweight camera that houses much of the technology found in the Z9 but in a sleeker, more portable design.

A Powerhouse for Video

Internal 8K60p and 4K120p Video

All the depth and detail of 12-bit RAW in a file half the size of ProRes RAW HQ Files with the 12-bit N-RAW output. With 12-bit ProRes RAW HQ up to 4K60p the Nikon Z8 is a go-to for its flexibility, consistency and practicality when editing footage taken by different types of cameras all using this codec. Another industry standard output at 10-bit ProRes 422HQ up to 4K60p allows for rich depth and detail with easy grading and flexibility to edit on-the-go from a laptop.

When shooting Full HD Proxy Files these files are created in-camera when shooting in ProRes RAW and N-RAW, making editing footage a quicker and smoother process. In combination with the N-Log Profile, you'll be able to see the extensive color depth and dynamic range to give you even more control over the final look of your footage.

A Powerhouse for Video

With the Nikon Z8 being compact and lightweight you can easily hold the camera more comfortably and move around more smoothly. Take advantage of the lighter camera system when shooting on a gimbal, with fewer cables and less setup time.

Capture 24-bit linear PCM sound right to the memory card alongside your footage. The Nikon Z8 is compatible with professional XLR microphones using Tascam's digital adapter CA-XLR-2d-AN (sold separately) to provide professional level audio quality.

Nikon proudly partners with leading innovative brands to minimize the gear you need for a shoot and to bring the best experience to the Z8 with brands like Sennheiser, Zhiyun, Atomos, Hollyland, Tascam, and more!

A Dream for Photography

45.7MP Stills - More Flexible Than Ever

Capture the full dynamic range, color and image information captured by the Z8's exceptional 45.7MP full-frame sensor with RAW 14-bit. Retain the outstanding image quality of traditional RAW with approximately 1/3 smaller file size with High Efficiency RAW 14-Bit.

HEIF 10-Bit allows for richer tonal gradation than JPEG with increased luminance at a comparable file size. This is great for stills and creating 8K HLG time-lapse videos in-camera. Alternatively you can also shoot JPEG 8-Bit that applies all of the camera settings to the file for smaller file sizes and quick, easy use.

Blazing Fast Frame Rates

With unrivaled burst speeds and a seemingly bottomless buffer the Z8 gives you the edge when photographing birds, sports, weddings and once-in-a-lifetime moments.

  • 20fps: RAW and JPEG
  • 30fps: JPEG Fine
  • 60fps: JPEG Normal DX Crop Mode
  • 120fps: 11MP JPEG

All-Electronic Shutter with No Moving Parts

The Nikon Z8 performs at lighting-fast speeds with no vibration, noise or wear and tear with virtually no rolling shutter distortion.

Recover the Shots Missed

The Z8 can record the moments right before and after you actually press the shutter release button. Pre-Release Capture saves the shots that would have otherwise been missed.

Beautiful Portraits made Easy

With the Skin Softening feature it easily makes skin look its best while keeping eyes and hair tack-sharp. This feature works for up to 3 subjects in a shot.

Simple, precise control over the hues and brightness, all optimized for skin tones with Portrait Impression balance.

Nikon Z8 has an improved white balance where manual adjustments are faster and more intuitive, and even Auto WB has been optimized for human subjects.

Fast, Accurate Autofocus

Nikon's Most Advanced Autofocus System

A sophisticated AF algorithm was developed using deep learning technology. This allows the Nikon Z8 to perform in extreme low light with focus all the way down to -9.0EV. It also combines subject detection and 3D tracking to follow the fastest, and even the most erratic subjects : People, cats, dogs, birds, airplanes, motorbikes, vehicles, bicycles and trains.

Fast and Accurate

Lock onto the eyes of people, pets and birds, even when they're small in the frame, covered by hair, glasses or goggles, right-side up or upside down.

Wide-area AF offers 20 custom options for defining your focus area. Ensure the bride and groom are always in sharp focus, even when the wedding guests are in the foreground

Subject detection and AF work all the way down to -6.5EV with enhanced low-light focusing. Active the Starlight Mode and the focus drops all the way down to -9EV.

Backed by a Brilliant Lens System

Z-Mount: Bigger and Better

With more light reaching the sensor, fine details and textures are captured faithfully across the entire frame, from corner to corner. NIKKOR Z lenses transform out-of-focus areas into a smooth, beautiful blur that makes subjects stand out. With the largest full-frame mount of any mirrorless system, Z series lenses have larger rear elements that deliver more light to the sensor.

Many NIKKOR Z lenses all but eliminate focus breathing, maintaining a consistent viewing angle while pulling focus in videos. With the wide diameter of the Z-mount, it accommodates more communication points, that enable larger amounts of metering and autofocus data to be shared between the lens and camera.

Use DSLR Lenses with No Loss of Image Quality

Attach the FTZ II Adapter (sold separately) and use over approximately 360 Nikon F-Mount lenses with no loss of image quality and all the benefits of the Z8's extraordinary sensor, image processing and in-boy image stabilization

In-Body Stabilization means every Lens has VR

The Z8 has 5.5 stops of 5-axis image stabilization built right into its body. That means even prime lenses get the benefits of VR for steadier video footage, more low-light capabilities and sharper results overall.
