Nikon Z8 camera rumors recap:

  • 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 (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)
  • Nikon Z8 size comparison with the Z7, Z9, and D850 cameras:

The Nikon Z8 is rumored to be approximately the same size as the Nikon D850 (just slimmer)
